Players will feel like they are in paradise, as the light colors, sand, and palm trees set the scene of what is to be paradise.
Paradise Pokerís software is relatively simple, clean, and easy to use. Users should have no problem finding their way around the interface.
Games are sorted in tabs and filters are available including stakes, average pot, players, etc. which is pretty consistent across all poker software.
Audio is decent and you will hear the sounds of chips being pushed around. Thatís about it though, nothing fancy.
Standard across all online poker sites, Paradise Poker includes a chat window where you may chat with other players as well as view in-game actions.
While you can multi-table at Paradise Poker, you canít resize tables. This will be a huge problem for players who wish to tile tables across their screen.
