Pacific Paradise is brought to you by IGT and has 5 reels and 720 ways to win. Playable from 60p to £300 a spin, it has an underwater ocean themed based in the Pacific. You can swim with graceful fish as you go in search for riches with treasure chests. The game is available to play on desktop (PC and laptop) and mobile/tablet devices.

With a soothing soundtrack and tranquil graphics, you get to explore the bountiful depths of the ocean. Pacific Paradise uses MultiWay Xtra technology where wins pay for matching symbols in any position in adjacent columns. There are wins both left to right and right to left and the 3 middle reels have 2x wild stacked symbols which count as 2 when part of a winning spin.

This applies in both the base game and Free Spins Bonus feature which is triggered when you get 5 jelly fish symbols (the Bonus symbol) on consecutive reels – this will reward you with 10 free spins. Look out for 5 consecutive symbols on 5 reels in the feature as you will get an additional 10 free spins. You can do this multiple times with a total of 260 free spins to be won!

What will take your winning potential to the next level are the dual symbols represented by the fish symbols. They count as 2 fish within their column(s). This will multiply the number of ways you can win if including in a winning combination.

You may be thinking this is just another MultiWay Xtra wagering slot game from IGT, like Prowling Panther or Siberian Storm, but this is different as it’s very high variance – Pacific Paradise is the most volatile one they’ve created in the range which pleases me as most of their releases lately seem be low to medium variance.

The fact it’s playable on mobile and tablet devices also helps and I am sure Pacific Paradise will become a firm IGT favourite. If you like underwater/ocean themed slots, Lord of the Ocean by Novomatic is recommended as it’s highly volatile and a land based classic.
