Cherry Blossoms is a Japanese-themed online slot game and it is brought to you by software developer NextGen Gaming. The title features decent graphics, but there’s certainly nothing remarkable or overly fancy about them. They are not 3D, there are few animations that aren’t too impressive and there aren’t many details to catch your eye. The backdrop displays a few cherry trees that are in full bloom and not much else. As for the reels, they demonstrate a number of different theme-related icons, such are the traditional rice paper lanterns, hand held fans, Japanese bells and more. In addition, the developers have included the lower value playing card symbols, but these don’t demonstrate any particular affiliation to the theme.
As far as the game’s layout goes, it has a grid of 5 reels and 3 rows – the usual – and it comes with a total of 20 active paylines. Players are free to regulate these as they please and you can in fact play with just a single payline if that’s what you would prefer. This makes Cherry Blossoms an ideal slot for penny players, with the minimum bet only being 1p per spin. There’s plenty of room for those with deeper pockets, too, as the maximum bet will set you back £100 per spin.
Where to Play
Watch out for the Wild symbol, as this is also the most lucrative icon on these reels. As a matter of fact, it can provide you with up to a whopping 12,500 coins. It can also land in just about any position, at any point during gameplay. Furthermore, the Wild will be able to substitute for any of the other symbols and thus contribute to winning combos. However, it will not be able to replace the Scatter symbol.
You will want to look out for the Scatter symbol. It can trigger the game’s only bonus round – the Freespins feature, although you will need to land at least 3 Scatter symbols all at the same time to do it. This will award you a minimum of 15 free spins. If you land 4 or 5 Scatters simultaneously, then you can count on 20 or 25 free spins, respectively.
What’s more, the free spins come with a 3x multiplier that applies to all wins throughout the entire feature, and to top it all off, you can even retrigger the feature and gain more free spins. The same principle applies: just land another 3, 4 or 5 Scatters at the same time to retrigger, then you can gain up to an extra 25 free spins for a potential maximum of 50 free spins.
Cherry Blossoms is a decent offering where the main focus is, of course, on the free spins bonus. The medium to high variance won’t allow for you to trigger it all too often, but when you do, it can pay out pretty handsomely.
