ParadiseWin Casino Review Review
- Bonus & Wagering
- Payout Percentage
- Customer Support
Due to the steep playthrough requirements (40xd+b) attached to the deposit bonus of 150% up to €150 we've awarded it our Court Jester Badge. It will only be removed when management decides to lower the playthrough. Until then the bonus is not in your best interest.
As the name implies, ParadiseWin Casino is licensed in the island paradise of Curacao. This sunny little island is situated in the Caribbean, over the years it has become a tax haven for cybergaming casinos. The operator is owned by HighWeb N.V. Casinos and has been online since June 2014.
To power its suite of games, ParadiseWin signed on Net Entertainment, Playtech, SBtech and GamesOS/CTXM. As always it’s the NetEnt games that steals the show. Short on the heels of the NetEnt games are the Playtech ones. Although Playtech has graced the online gambling world for many years now it’s not the powerhouse it once was. Don’t get me wrong the game graphics that feature in the Playtech games are still superb. GamesOS/CTXM is a relatively newcomer and powers the live dealer games. The operator features a live casino, casino, table games, Vegas-style slots machines, video poker, progressive jackpots, mobile and sports betting.
The software is Instant Play’ which is great since it allows you to get in on the action immediately-no cumbersome downloads here. You also don’t have to worry that the games will ‘freeze’ or become ‘jittery’. Strictly speaking it’s like playing in a Vegas casino from the comfort of your own home.
Deposit Bonus and Wagering Requirements
Whatever you style of play, be it live dealer games, casino, mobile or sports betting, ParadiseWin Casino has got you covered. If you enjoy playing casino games and you’re a first time visitor, you automatically qualify for a bonus of 150% up to €150 plus 30 free spins to play the NetEnt games.
Before you can qualify for the bonus you must deposit a small amount of €$30. Once you’ve accepted the bonus money, it must be rolled over 40 times the deposit and bonus sum (80xb). I’m not going to beat around the bush here but this bonus is very steep, as such it merits our court jester badge. The badge will only be removed once management lowered the bonus wagering. Games that count 100% towards the completion of the play-through are all NetEnt slots machines.
If you’re not sure how the bonus wagering is calculated here’s an example. Mark deposits $50, his initial bonus is matched by $75 (150% match bonus). Instead of just the $50 ($50+$75) he can now play with $125. The bonus terms and conditions state that before he can make a withdrawal he must roll over 40x$50+$75=$5,000.
*Each software has its own bonus offer, I’ve just mentioned the NetEnt one. If you accept the Playtech or GameOS bonus ensure you understand their bonus terms.
Additional Bonus Terms
- If you accept the bonus you are not allowed to bet more than €$5 per spin.
- The wagering requirements attached to the bonus must be completed within 7 days, otherwise it expires.
- You are only allowed to play more than one game at a time. If you play more than one game at a time your winnings will be confiscated. This term does not float my boat.
- Players from the following countries are excluded from any bonus offer: Afghanistan, Albania, Bosnia Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, India, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyztan, Macedonia, Mongolia, Montenegro, Nepal, Pakistan, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Tajikistan, Thailand, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan.
Customer support is available 24/7 through email support only. Regretably the operator’s live chat section is only available during certain hours of the day, Monday to Friday (08:00 to 18:00 GMT). Frankly one would expect a casino of this magnitude’s live support to be available 24/7. Then again I think the support staff are partying away their weekends-after all the site is licensed in a tropical paradise.
When you click on the ‘Responsible Gaming‘ tab in the footer section of the site, you’ll notice a series of questions. If you’re a problem gambler please answers these questions as truthfully as possible. If you’ve answered yes to at least three questions I suggest you seek help straightaway. The operator lists the various links to sites that offer free counseling. If you need a cooling off period you can self-exclude yourself for a few weeks up to 6 months or permanently.
Security and Fairness
Your personal details will not be sold or given to any third party. ParadiseWin Casino uses sophisticated SSL encryption software verified by GoDaddy. It protects sensitive information such as credit card numbers, passwords and financial data. It also uses the same encryption technique used by banks worldwide.
To ensure that players play in a safe and secure environment, the softwares utilised by the casino is tested regularly by iTech Labs for transparency. It ensures that the games are fair and that they are not rigged. The average payout ratio for all the games is 95%.
Money Laundering Clause
”All real money deposits must be wagered 1 time before a withdrawal can be made. E.g. If you deposit €20 you must make €20 worth of wagers before a withdrawal can be requested.”
This rule applies for all real money transactions. If a player deposits 10 credits he/she must wager at least €10, otherwise players can use the casino to launder money. In case the player made a deposit and wants to return it back (let’s say he changed his mind to play) the cash will be credited to his account again.
In summary. With a cool 600 plus games, superb gaming platform, numerous bonuses, cashback on losses you’re guaranteed value for money. Although the bonus offers are very appealing it’s the ludicrous play-through attached to them that’s a deal breaker-in my opinion at least. If you accept a bonus you do so at your sole discretion.
Bonuses & Promotions
ParadiseWin Casino offers a bonus to players from all walks of life. If you enjoy playing live games, sports betting, mobile or casino, the operator has you covered. Returning players will receive a reload bonus and VIP players will be pampered with all kinds of goodies.
Cash Back: If you’re an active player, you’ll receive a 20% cash back on your losses at the end of each week. The maximum cash back amount is 1,000 credits and only apply to the Playtech games.
Banking at ParadiseWin Casino
The following deposit and withdrawal methods can be used: ewallets (Neteller, Skrill), iDeal, Visa, paysafecard, QIWI wallet, MasterCard and Trustly.
Withdrawals via ewallets will be processed within 24 hours maybe sooner. The minimum withdrawal amount is 30 credits and the maximum is 30,000 credits per week.
If you request a withdrawal for the first time you must provide the operator with the proper verification documents:
A copy of your ID or passport, front and back picture included and a utility bill that’s not older than three months.
The NetEnt, Playtech and GameOS games need little introduction, they’re also divided into three separate sections. They come with loads of bonus rounds, scatters, wilds and multipliers.
Although Net Entertainment is a relatively newcomer to the market, this software provider has become the yardstick for industry standards. Its games are loaded with some of the best graphics and audio I’ve ever seen. I highly recommend the following NetEnt slots: Gonzo’s Quest, Steam Power, South Park:Reel Chaos and Aliens. The good news is that progressive jackpot wins are not included in the withdrawal limit.
The Playtech games are just as good and some of my favourites are Rocky, Pink Panther and The Mummy. I’m happy to report that all progressive wins will be paid out in one lump sum and not in increments. Unfortunately the network wide progressive games such as the Marvel series and Mega Fortune are not included.
The video poker variety is well represented across the three softwares. My top video poker games are Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild and Joker Poker. Contemporary games that complete the gaming suite are Shockwave Poker and Coliseum Poker.
Smart phones players can play Gonzo’s Quest, Jack Hammer, Jack and the Beanstalk touch and many more. The site is fully mobile responsive and ideal to smartphones like iPad and Androids. I tested the site from my Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini, I must say it loads like a charm and it looks good.
Live Casino Games
If you’re not into video slots machines hopefully the liver dealer games like baccarat, blackjack and roulette will appeal to you. Live games are streamed to your computer from a live studio. Live games cannot be played for free only for real cash.[addtoany]
