The Cherry Blossoms slot game is another oriental themed game delivered to the market by the creative team at Net Entertainment. It has been on the landscape for quite a while after being released back in August 2012.
Despite its age, Cherry Blossoms offers up striking graphics against a pure white backdrop, with a catchy soundtrack in keeping with a lot of the NetEnt slot games. With them being among the leading providers when it comes to mobile gaming, this is a slot which can be enjoyed on all desktop, mobile and tablet devices.
NetEnt are becoming renowned for their Asian themed games and Cherry Blossoms is another which falls into that category. There is a floral feel to the game with the cherry blossom flowers a key part of the storyline. The slot has five reels and 20 paylines so there are plenty of ways to win.
As with most of the slot games from NetEnt, there is a mixture of low and high paying icons. The low icons are the typical card symbols – 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, while the higher ones include fans, bells, lanterns and a temple. Keep your eye out for the temple as it pays the highest of the regular icons. The Geisha is the Wild icon and the Cherry Blossom flower is the Scatter.
There are two real bonus features on the Cherry Blossoms slot game with the first being the Geisha Wild feature. Any wins that feature this icon come with a 2x multiplier. Should you get five Geishas on a payline you could be rewarded with the 12,500 coin jackpot.
The other feature is the Free Spins feature. This gets activated if you can get at least three of the Cherry Blossom Scatter on the reels. The more Scatters you get the more free spins you receive. You are awarded 15 spins for three Scatters, 20 spins for four and 25 if you land all five Scatters. Keep your eye out for the Geisha symbol during this feature though as wins on spins containing that come with a 6x multiplier. This feature can be reactivated which is very much a selling point for the player.
The Cherry Blossoms slot game comes with an RTP rating of just 95.37% which is comfortably below the average and goes against the player by current slot standards.
There is a danger that all the Asian themed slot games can blend into one, and once you’ve played one you feel like you have played them all, so NetEnt deserve credit for that not being the case with Cherry Blossoms. This game might be short on features but the two that are on offer can be extremely lucrative without too much luck needed. When you mix that in with the impressively clean graphics, the easy to use interface and the sharp soundtrack, you have a relatively high volatile slot game that should be high up on the list of all those who like their slot experiences with a bit of risk attached.
