Tiki Paradise Pokie Review

tiki paradise slot logoOne of the upcoming titles for 2016 from Playtech is Tiki Paradise, a 5×3 reel game that seems to draw inspiration from Polynesian culture, as suggested by its title. There isn’t much information out there on this game, only a few brief seconds of footage from a video posted to Playtech’s channel where they made public the new titles.

The snippets released showed a polished looking game, with design elements focusing on wood, with some tropical touches to keep it merry.

This is a welcome contrast from most Polynesian-inspired pokie machines, that often become these outrageous displays of color and gaudy tropical visual elements. The prevalence of wood and torches in the footage that we saw reminds us more of a night-time luau than a daytime Margaritaville beach party.


Playtech was founded back in 1999; that’s seventeen years ago this year. Since then, they have positioned themselves as one of the most important suppliers for online casino.

They not only develop games, like pokie machines, card games, and so on; but they also provide their own proprietary management software called IMS. They advertise themselves a providers of turnkey solutions for online casinos, and given their capacity to provide software for every necessary element of the establishment of an online casino, this is no overstatement.

One of their biggest focus right now is an omni-channel platform program. Omni-channel is a new term in the industry, referring to how players should access casino services through all possible channels using only one account and wallet.

Playtech’s omni-channel platform is called Playtech One. Among the most recent titles announced alongside Tiki Paradise, Age of the Gods, Ace Ventura, The Flintstones, and Top Gun; it seems that only Tiki Paradise will have access to the Playtech One features.

It should be noted that Playtech filed a copyright registration with the Office for the Harmonization of the Common Market (OAMI, in Spanish) for the name mark Tiki Paradise, but its currently being contested (“Application opposed”, in the OAMI’s terminology). We’d have to see if any developments regarding this copyright claim have any effect on this title’s release.

How to Play It

Normally, Playtech features a standard user interface layout across all its games, with all user control dow at the bottom. This layout does not vary, even if the visual aspect of the individual items may change depending on the game.

In Tiki Paradise, Playtech appears to have ditched it’s standard layout, having moved balance and win indicators to the top of the screen.

None of the traditional buttons (spin, auto play, and Playtech’s Turbo Mode) appear on the announcement trailer, so we believe that Playtech may be experimenting with a new, touchscreen-optimized control scheme.

Special features

Having seen so little of this game, we cannot say anything about possible special features, beyond apparent expanding wilds (represented here by torches).

Maximum Payout

This information is still unreleased yet.


There’s very little information out there on this title, and we suspect this may be related to the opposition to its trademark application with OAMI. But the very little things that we know make this title certainly intriguing and very interesting.

Playtech One, the company’s omni-channel solution, seems like it will become the new normal in online casinos, a new standard for the industry.

The seeming experimentation with a new control scheme does look like a refreshing idea, specially for a company famous for its strict adherence to a given user interface layout. We are looking forward to getting our hands on this game, and we’ll be following closely any developments in its copyright application.
