About the Game

Cherry Blossom’s 5 reels are set against a background of pale blue sky and trees laden with cherry blossoms and hung with Japanese lanterns.  The reels house up to 20 win lines and a variety of Japanese-themed symbols, including red lanterns, pretty blue fans with floral designs, pagodas, and Geishas, and of course, a cherry blossom.  The Pagoda Symbol is the most lucrative of the regular symbols, 5 of which can pay up to 2,500 coins.

Bonus features include:

  • WILDS – the Geisha symbol is WILD, substituting for all other symbols other than SCATTERED Cherry Blossom. Not only this, but it doubles the prize when it appears in a win line.
  • SCATTERS – 3 or more SCATTERED Cherry Blossom Symbols trigger Free Spins. The number of Free Spins awarded depends on the number of SCATTERS in the triggering combination.  For example, 3 Blossoms earns 15 Free Spins, 4 earns 20 Free Spins, and 5 earns 25 Free Spins.  These are all played at the line bet of the triggering spin, and are boosted by a generous 3x multiplier.  What’s more, if a Geisha symbol is part of the win, the multiplier shoots up to x.  This can make SCATTERS a very useful and lucrative symbol.
  • Gamble – you have the chance to gamble your wins by choosing a card suit or colour, doubling your win for a correct colour, or quadrupling it for a correct suit. Those who like a little more tension in their games, or enjoy higher stakes, are sure to find this enhances their game greatly.

An easy to use Autoplay feature let you set anywhere up to 100 Auto Spins, so you can sit back and soak up the ambience of the cherry blossom orchard.  As is typical of NextGen games, the game screen is clear and user-friendly. 

The Verdict

This is an enchanting game, which combines a gentle atmosphere with exciting bonuses and winning opportunities.  You’re sure to feel transported to a lush garden in Japan, without ever leaving your living room, and come away the richer (perhaps financially) from this meditative experience!
