Winfall in Paradise slot REVIEW
Winfall in Paradise ReviewReel Life Games is a somewhat paradoxical and interesting play on words, not least since playing any kind of computer/mobile game is usually seen as the opposite of “real life”. Anyway, their debut release, Winfall in Paradise (another clever wordplay), comes across as a somewhat incongruent mix of many different well-known features, with a few unusual elements thrown in for good measure.
The base game is all about triggering the Wheel spin, which awards 1 of 2 modifiers, or a prize equal to your previous biggest win. Your Wheel spin chances increase gradually as the volcano eruption builds, and you can get all 3 features combined from the Wheel in the bonus round. You will always win at least what you got on the previous free spin, and up to 3,920x your stake can be landed from a single spin.

Winfall in Paradise Slot Features
The volcano game logo wild steps in for all regular pay symbols, and it can land on all 5 reels. It also happens to be the most valuable symbol in the game, awarding 20x your stake for 5 on a payline. The 5 premium symbols pay between 6 and 14 x your stake for the same, in comparison.
The colorful bonus reel seen at the foot of the volcano on the left starts with a 10 % chance. This indicates the likelihood that the Lava symbol (reel 5 only) will land as a Bonus Wheel symbol. If it lands as a Lava symbol, the lava level in the volcano rises and 5 % is added to the chance indicator. When the Wheel feature is triggered, you stand to win 1 of 3 different bonus features as follows:
The Volcano - the volcano value (next to the wheel chance indicator) starts at your bet level. It increases to your highest win at all times, and that’s the amount you “win again” if awarded by the wheel.
The Wave - adds between 2 and 20 wilds randomly placed on the reels. Reel 1 to 3 has priority when it comes to the wild distribution.
The Wind - a random symbol is first selected, and all lower-tier symbols will be upgraded to this symbol. In addition, you get 2 wilds randomly placed on the grid.
You trigger the Bonus Round when you land 3 Turtle scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 at the same time. This awards 7 free spins, and you can retrigger the feature to win 7 extra spins the same way (up to 35 spins at the most). Any Turtle scatter that lands after you’ve won 35 free spins in total, will award a 10x prize instead of extra spins. You’re always guaranteed to win at least the same amount as what you got from the last free spin. You can also win 2 or 3 combined features from the Wheel during the bonus round.
Finally, non-UK players, and anyone eligible, can take advantage of the Bonus Buy feature. It will set you back 120x your stake, and you get 7 free spins. In addition, the Win-It-Again Volcano value will be set to 400x your stake, and the Lava meter starts at 100 % for a guaranteed Wheel trigger if/when the wheel lands on reel 5. Everything resets once you return to the base game.
The 200 Spins Winfall in Paradise Slot Experience
Our 2:45-minute highlights video starts when we trigger the Wave feature from the bonus wheel, and we skip to the bonus round trigger right after. You get to see the Wind feature during the free spins round, and simply hit the play button below if you’re curious as to how it all played out.
We have to say that Winfall in Paradise is a somewhat strange debut release from Yggdrasil YGS Master, Reel Life Games. It looks dated in one way, but at the same time it comes with some decent feature animations. Especially the Wind feature and the volcano are nicely done, while other elements, like the bonus round ‘Increasing Win Cloud’ look more amateurish.
The pace is broken up a lot by these somewhat lengthy feature animations, and being able to skip past them with a click would have been a welcome option. You get well-known features in a somewhat unusual wrapping, except perhaps for the somewhat innovative Win Again and Increase Win features. The 19,880x potential is solid, but the below-average 95.6 % RTP is the price you pay for chasing it.
If you appreciate Winfall in Paradise Slot you should also try:
Hyper Burst - takes you to a similar volcanic island, and this Yggdrasil release awards a free respin per win with expanding reels. Grow the colossal reel to 4x4, and you unlock a multiplier up to x10. This can lead to payouts up to 12,800x your stake.
Wild Lava - is a Playtech installment revolving around an active volcano, and it plays out on a 5x5 grid with 40 win ways. Scatters are collected, and released as wilds on randomly triggered respins. All collected wilds are added per free spin in the bonus round, and you can win up to 10,000x your stake.
Fire Toad - takes you on an evolutionary journey to a tropical volcano island, and this Play’n Go release is all about the symbol upgrade feature. There are 4 stages of evolution in the base game, and each retrigger upgrades the symbols in the bonus round. The volatility is high, and the max win is 5,000x your stake.
