Open the Thai Paradise mobile slot and be transported to white sandy beaches, crystal waters, white elephants and a place that could be anywhere but Thailand.
We felt bad giving Thai Paradise only two stars. We really did. And we know that some of you out there will play this slot game and disagree with us.
The reason being, this is actually one of the really decent Playtech slot machines. It’s also one of the few in their collection that is truly high variance.
First of all, we weren’t fans of the theme. It’s a little… boring.
Obviously we get that this is a matter of opinion, but it really felt like someone just Googled Thailand and then just grabbed some generic Asian images instead to spice thinks up.
There’s white elephants in Thailand right? Ok, white elephants go in! And and this girl is pretty. She’ll do! They probably also have some temples and flowers right?
If the theme had been a little more interesting we may have forgiven this incredibly high variance slot machine for its simplicity.
After all, Novomatic’s Book of Ra Deluxe slot is no more complicated, and that machine is a must play for all players who love a high risk with their gambling.
Other than a wild, which also acts like a scatter, all you get here is free spins.
Which means that, if you start playing on autoplay, as we did, you can easily forget you’re even playing until you realise that your budget has ran out and nothing has happened in between.
Perhaps if the theme had been more exciting, we would have paid more attention to all the little animations and wins that occur during the game.
Notice how we mentioned Book of Ra Deluxe above? Playtech may, or may not, have “borrowed” from that game.
And as with Novomatic’s most famous slot, Playtech’s Thai Paradise video slot is all about the free spin feature. When you hit it you get richer reels with more scatters, meaning more easily re-trigger the free spins, plus one extra symbol that becomes an expanded scatter.
This feature is one of the most thrilling bonus features in slots, and it’s hard to find on mobile. For that alone, we almost wanted to give this game an extra star.
And then we remembered we’d probably play on Lord of The Ocean slot instead if that was our fancy.
Still, if you’re at a Playtech casino and the Jackpot Giant slot isn’t smashing the winnings, Thai Paradise will no doubt call at one time or another, simply to seduce you with it’s high risk 15 paylines reels.

Wild / Scatter: The pink flower is the wild and scatter symbol in one. Which means that it will be used to replace all other symbols and also pay out if you get 3 or more anywhere on screen, regardless of paylines.
Free Spins: If you get three of those wild/scatter symbols anywhere on the 5 reels, you'll also trigger 10 free rounds.
Here any one of the symbols (except the pink flower) will be chosen as an extra 'expanded' scatter.
With the lower symbols (10, J, Q, K, A) you'll need three on screen during the free spins for them to fill the whole column and give you wins.
The image symbols pay out more and trigger when only two are on screen. But of course, are rarer. So it's all luck on the day which will be most profitable.
Generally though, you'll need to to re-trigger the free spins at least once to get any decent winnings, we found.
Not as hard to do as you might think, as that pink flower shows up far more often in the free spins bonus game.
A high variance Playtech slot, our guts told us we should love it. But the theme didn't grab us and we were quickly bored waiting for those thrilling free spins.
However, if you dream of a mobile Thai Paradise, and like your slot machines on the risky side, then add a star to this mobile slot review and get playing.
Or you can play Thai Paradise at one of these mobile casinos:
