My Tropical Fantasy at Paradise 8 Casino (Check out my Balance...Booya!!)

My Tropical Fantasy at Paradise 8 Casino (Check out my Balance...Booya!!)

Not sure about you, but where I’m at, it’s the brunt of winter, snow and ice are on the ground, the sky is grey, trees are bare, and needless to say, I’m ready for a little warmth and sunshine. I know beggar’s can’t be choosers, but I’d be lying if I didn’t admit I’m also ready for a Pina Coloda, private cabana , some flip flops and palm trees swaying in the tropical breezes.

But, since that’s not going to happen, I do what’s next best – virtual reality. Now, I’m not talking about the whole goggle headset and touch sensor gloves experience or like they do in Avatar, but I am talking about some of the best Web technology out there.  Low & behold, this being an online gambling blog and all, wouldn’t you know that I’m talking about online casino gambling? 🙂

So, in my fantasy to be basking in the sunshine and dangling my toes in the water, I started to mull over all the online casinos with a tropical theme. I started going down the list, and at one point I remembered Casino Del Rio, but soon realized they had turned into an “eco” themed online casino – still not a bad thing, but not what I was looking for in order to fulfill my fantasy. I mean, I eat organic food and recycle and all that, but at the moment, I need a tropical fantasy like a baby needs its bottle! 🙁

After a few more minutes of sobbing and narrowing down online casinos by software platform, I found myself perusing Rival Gaming, and landing upon an online casino, which to be honest, was one that I am not as familiar with as some of the others in my book of top picks. Not that I’ve been impartial to Rival-powered Davinici’s Gold, Superior Casino and Sloto Cash, I just didn’t have the good chance of playing at……drum roll please…..Paradise 8 Casino – the object of my tropical fantasy desires! The funny thing is that Paradise 8 has been around for quite a while, and of all their Rival brethren, actually offers one of the best, if not the best bonus packages currently. Try a $10 no-deposit bonus followed by 100% up to $300 Free, or 2-part bonus up to $800 Free on slots, or 100% up to $350 Free on table games.

Now, I know it may sound peculiar to some of you for an online casino to make you feel like you are in a tropical paradise. However, there is something to be said for full-screen imagery (definitely play in full screen mode people), the right music, and of course, having a couple Pina Coloda’s in your fazizzle.

When you first open Paradise 8 Casino, the first thing you will see is a high definition photo of what is very likely a poolside resort in Hawaii. Choice! The water looked so good, I actually tried to dive into the screen. Okay, maybe I had more than a couple Pina Coloda’s 🙂 For your information, the photo posted with this blog is actually a screen shot of the latest welcome screen at Paradise 8. Ya, so after logging back in, I noticed the lobby screen had changed. I’m not sure if this is a regular thing or a difference between the initial download and regular login screen – either way, it get’s my tropical kicks off.

Backed by some very relaxing tropical lounge music dubbed with little parrots and birds chirping away in the background, I seriously was halfway into my tropical fantasy before I even logged into Paradise 8. The only thing missing was a bikini babe to walk by and remind me that she was way out my league. And honestly, that’s all I needed. Let’s just say the diversion of the online casino games took over from there. So there you have it – If you too are looking for a little tropical getaway via an online casino, Paradise 8 lives up to their name – Your best bet if you ask me. Now, if only I can get turn the virtual reality into reality – bikini babe and all! Signing out then, ’cause I guess I better get to wagering!
