From the Wager Gaming Technology ( former Vegas Technology) collection of superior slot games, Paradise Riches is a huge and great looking game that lives up to all the expectations that we have developed from dealing with WGT over the years. This one is a colorful game that is contrived to transport players to a balmy tropical locale filled with swaying palms, hibiscus and island treats.
Online you will find no fewer than three Wager Gaming Technology games under the name of Paradise Riches. The biggest and the latest of these games is the one that we are talking about here. It has five reels and 25 paylines. Prior to this one there was a three-reel game with a similar look and a five-reel, 20 payline game that looks almost identical to this one.

Upon logging onto Paradise Riches the player is greeted with palm fronds and the orange and purple skies of a South Seas evening. The five reels dominate the center of the screen, and the usual Vegas Tech controls are lined up across the bottom, including the Paytable, Autoplay, Lines Played selector, Bet, Win and Spin controls. Again, as usual, all the controls are well labeled and easy to use. Worthy of mention is the Paytable – when it is pulled up using the Paytable button the player is greeted with a better tropical evening scene with the moonlight reflecting off of a quiet lagoon. I suspect that there was no room on the main play page for this great graphic.
The sounds used in Paradise Riches are very basic and simple – just the usual machine sounds backed up by white casino noise. There are no side games here, so there are no special sound bites to back them up.
In keeping with the island paradise theme of the game, the symbols of Paradise Riches evoke the beauty of Hawai’i. The high end combinations include broken Coconuts, Mai Tais, leaping Dolphins, Sailboats, Hibiscus flowers and Hula Girls. On the lower end, combinations are handled by the standard playing card indices ranging from 9 through A.
In addition to being the Jackpot symbol, the Hula Girl serves as a substitute for any symbol in any winning combination with the exception of the Scatter.
The scatter symbol is the Hibiscus flower which wins bonus coins when it appears anywhere in the play field.
Paradise Riches is a big 25 payline game that accepts bets on each of the paylines. Like all the top games, coin values may be set by the player from 1¢ all the way up to $10. With 25 lines in play, the max bet can range from a modest 25¢ up to an impressive $250 per spin. This wide range of bets makes Paradise Riches appealing to all levels of players from the casual to the serious high roller.
The hibiscus flower serves as a scatter symbol, and when three or more of them turn up anywhere in the play field, free spins are awarded with a 3x multiplier. Hitting the free spins can make the winnings accumulate fast, as even normally modest payouts are suddenly worth real money. Additionally, if three hibiscus flowers show up during a free spin session, more free spins are awarded, compounding the winnings.
The maximum payout on this machine is 10,000 coins which may be worth as much as $100,000 if playing with $10 coins.
Paradise Riches is a nice looking and fun to play game. It completely lives up to the standard established by Vegas Technology, and it is a great addition to their collection. Like most of the current WGT games, it does not indulge in lots of animations or special soundtracks, but that does not diminish this game. The play is fun and the winnings are big!
