Burning Cherry may sound like some sort of exotic cocktail but is in fact a five reel, 5 line video slot from Viaden Gaming. This is an old school fruit machine in video slot form and as such benefits from scatter wins and multi-line gameplay.
The slot takes on a classic layout with all the buttons below the reels (except the paytable) with a jazzed up flaming background to stay in keeping with the flaming hot theme. The five line markers look a little lowly down each side of the slot and would have probably been better arranged down just one of the flanks.
The reel icons are a traditional affair with fruits of all nature transporting players back to the fruit machines of old. These icons include lemons, grapes, plums, cherries (curiously not flaming), oranges, lemons and 7’s. It’s not until a winning payout occurs that you realize what the ‘burning’ part of the title is all about. A win triggers each icon to be licked with flame, Burning Cherry is a catchy title but a more apt one might have been Burning Fruit judging by the treatment each icon gets.
This slot is certainly one for penny slot enthusiasts because the maximum wager is just 0.25 and can be played from as little as a penny per spin. Automatic spins can be setup too, so handsfree play for pennies is now a reality.
Each win is greeted by an old school beat which signals the opportunity to gamble the win by pressing the orange button. This presents the chance of doubling your win if you guess the right color of the next card or quadrupling it for guessing the correct suit. This is so ludicrously simple and utterly genius at the same time.
Scatter wins can be triggered by three bell graphics or more. Three graphics pays double your line bet, four pays 10 times and five pays 50 times.
So there we have it, Burning Cherry is a simple yet highly enjoyable penny slot, it’s as simple as that.
