Playtech Just Launched Tiki Paradise Slot Machine
Brought one of the best professional online casino developers there is out there, Tiki Paradise one of the latest upcoming releases created by Playtech. It seems to be inspired in the Polynesian culture. The 5 x 3 traditional reel of this game is beautifully decorated with a wooden layout and tropical beachy elements like torches.
Even though this theme has been used many times by other companies, the ones I have come across with are dull and ridiculously designed. The visual design present in Tiki Paradise is rather spotless and the wooden appearance of the game gives it a fresh kind of “new” appearance to the game in comparison with the many modern technological themed slot machines we have seen in the market for many years.
The bad news is that there is too little to be known about this game, since the only information out in the open about it was featured in a short promotional video Playtech launched featuring all their upcoming releases: Ace Ventura, The Flintstones, Top Gun, Age of The Gods and Tiki Paradise itself.
The developer company Playtech, founded in 1999, with almost 17 years of career, has a vast portfolio full of a huge amount of successful video slot machines. The effort made by this company has paid out as their most popular games have placed the developers at the top of the industry.
Playtech is characterized by filling everybody’s expectations when it comes to game selection. They have covered every taste out there: If you are looking for a traditional slot machine, they have it; if you are looking for a specific theme, they probably have it. They have games inspired by athletes, celebrities, comics and movies.
Besides all of that, Playtech seems to be improving their games with an Omni-channel called Playtech One. This solution service intends to allow all the player to play Playtech virtual slot machines (featuring Playtech One) in all the available platforms using the same account and the same wallet.
What We Love
There is not much information about the game said by Playtech, but, from what we already saw in the promotional video there might be a thing or two that makes us anxious, intrigued and rather curious. We wonder how Playtech will manage to boost Tiki Paradise’s playability, the special features that we will be able to find in the game, and how the user’s interaction with Playtech One will change this slot machine.
One of the things that intrigues us the most: We were able to spot the total balance display and the last win one right above the grid in the promotional video launched by Playtech, however, the traditional icons, like the spin button, the auto-spin, and Playtech’s Turbo Boost feature were nowhere to be found.
We can only guess two theories: Either the user’s interface will be located at the bottom area as usual and Playtech ignored it for advertisement reasons, or they are experimenting with a new controlling scheme for a touchscreen-optimized way to play their games. This last one makes total sense if we take into consideration the new Playtech One system that allows the users play the games in all platforms available (most of them touchscreen).
What We Do Not Like
We can’t safely say anything we wouldn’t like about this new title, since there is not much to be known about it. However, there was something not quite pleasant that we spotted in the preview.
If you are not new to our reviews, you probably already know that we don’t like the use of the traditional poker cards (A, K, Q, J, 10, and 9) in the video slot machines. I believe that the industry has revolved so much, they should be thinking about replacing these with elements to fit the theme of the games.
Worth Playing It?
Even though there is not much information about Tiki Paradise, our expectations are way high, because Playtech has shown to put their best efforts in their games improving all of them with new and original ideas. We believe Tiki Paradise will be no different.
