Paradise Reels - This is a five-reel, nine-line online video slot game has a classic appearance, with the background sounds of ocean waves and seagulls to transport you far away to a summer beach holiday.

In the bonus game, players must pick surfers and the compete, with each victory advancing the player to the next round and hopefully the maximum bonus.
