Cherry Blossoms Slot Review
Horticulturists will enjoy the look of this game. If that baffles you then what I’m trying to say is that if you like flowers then that’ll help you here. It’s another trip to the Orient and not the one in East London.
This is a five reel, three row and 20 payline game from NextGen who really know how to put out a great slot game. Playing the game costs between £0.20 and £40 per spin. A decent range and you should find a level at which you can comfortably gamble away to your heart’s content and have no financial worries.
The symbols in the main have an oriental theme. There’s a Chinese lantern, some bells, fans and a lovely looking temple.
The wild symbol is the Geisha Girl and this substitutes for all other symbols in the game apart from the scatter symbol. This really helps you get a fair few winning combinations and when that does happen there’s a 2x multiplier (even in the bonus game too).
The designers ran out of ideas at that point and decided to fill the rest of the reels with the nine to Ace playing cards. The game does have a pleasant look to it though with a colourful background with cherry blossom trees to the left and right of the reels with a lovely looking blue sky. The soundtrack fits in well with the theme too.
There is a gamble feature in this game which again is a bit of a lazy moment by the game developers. It’s the usual chance to double your win if correctly guessing the colour of the next card or quadrupling it if you can guess the next suit. It has nothing whatsoever to do with the theme of the game which is a bit of a wasted opportunity. You can win some decent amounts in this feature but be careful and don’t fall into the trap of trying one gamble too many.
All the control buttons are down at the bottom of the screen and there’s an autoplay feature that can be set for 15 automated games. To fully learn how the game plays, just press the info button and all will be revealed.
If you can get three or more of the Cherry Blossoms scatter symbols on the reels, then this gets you into the bonus round. This is well worth playing because there are a minimum of 15 free spins on offer. It all depends on how many of those scatter symbols trigger the free spins, three get you 15, four award you 20 and five see you end up with 25 free spins to play with. The even better news is that all wins are tripled during this bonus round A winning combination with the Geisha symbol gives you a win that has a 6x multiplier and it’s possible to retrigger the free spins.
A pleasant game to play that can get you some good wins in the bonus game. That doesn’t come along too often but it’s well worth it when it does.
