Taking inspiration from the arcade pokies of old, Cherry Red is a Microgaming pokie that you can find on Spin Palace and other respected casinos. This is a 3 reel pokie that has gone back to basics, but is that a good thing or a bad thing, and does this pokie offer anything to the modern gambler?
Cherry Red uses old-school aesthetics, with cherries being the theme of the day. Many pokie fans will remember the cherry symbols, although as they often played a very small role, paying very little, many will not remember them fondly.
Cherry Red aims to change that though as they play a much bigger role here, with a payout of 1,600x if you get three of them on the game’s only payline. This is the maximum payout on the base game, which makes it the maximum payout overall, but there are high returns for other symbols as well, including the “bar” and the “7”.
Cherry Red uses a coin betting system, with the player setting the value of these coins prior to the play. The cost can range from $0.25, which is the minimum, to $5, which is the maximum.
There are no bonus rounds on Cherry Red, but that is no surprise considering this is a 3 reel pokie with just 1 payline. This will disappoint some, but you’re looking in the wrong place if you have clicked onto this game to find big bonus rounds and randomly triggered features.
A fun little pokie with a nostalgic theme and some polished aesthetics, Cherry Red is well worth a play or two, but without any scatters, free spins or bonus rounds to keep you coming back for more, it is unlikely to find its way onto your long-term schedule and is instead the sort of game you will play a few times and then ignore.
