When I read the title of this WGS Technology slot, I felt that it was going to be a retro-styled slot with a little twist, and for once I was proven correct. The 3X Wild Cherry slot is indeed a retro styled game, and a nicely done one at that, and it does have a couple of great features to enjoy.

The first is the Wild Multiplier Bonus, which offers 3x multipliers to any wins it is part of and the second is the progressive jackpot prize, which increases with every spin it is not won, but which can only be won if players wager the maximum three coins per spin (you can however choose how much each coin is worth to ensure you play for an amount per spin suitable for your bankroll).

There is a real buzz around the retro-gaming slot industry at the moment with some excellent examples of games that would not look out of place in a 1980s Vegas Casino, still allowing players to enjoy excellent game play and some sizeable wins. So how does the 3X Wild Cherry Slot fare when compared to the other games available in the market today?

Let's take a closer look at the game and find out.

Presentation

The presentation of the 3X Wild Cherry slot has been designed to look like an older style slot game that you would have come across in the 1970s and 1980s. The three reels are displayed, along with the different wins available on the pay table. You can also see the progressive jackpot prize, displayed prominently on the reels.

I think WGS Technology went for a "Vegas" slots look with this game and I think they have pulled it off very nicely. Sure it isn't the most advanced in terms of presentation or sounds, but it cheerfully replicates an older style slot very nicely.

What's on the reels?

There are a number of retro-styled symbols on the reels, as well as the Jackpot symbols (more on those later) and the Wild Multiplier symbol, which we will explore in more detail below.

It is pleasing to see that WGS Technology have gone full-on retro with this slot and have used a number of older style symbols on the game including blue single bars, red double bars and gold treble bars, a bell, and a large pile of cash.

Each of the symbols that is on the reels is shown on the main screen of the slot, together with the level of pay out you can expect to receive if you land them across the pay line. Playing two or three coins as opposed to one, will double or treble the amount you win per spin when you do hit a winning line.

Wild features

The Wild Cherry is the in game Wild and as the name of the slot suggests, as well as substituting for all other symbols on the reels (apart from the Jackpot symbols), it also applies a multiplier of 3x to any win that it is part of.

Furthermore, if you can land the Wild Cherry symbol across the pay line then you will trigger the biggest base game win, this is 500 coins if you are playing one coin per spin, 1000 coins if you are playing two and 1,500 coins if you are playing three.

Free Spins features

There are no Free Spins on the 3X Wild Cherry Slot.

Other bonus features

The main and only bonus feature on the slot other than the Wild symbol is the progressive jackpot. This works in the same way as all other progressives, with a small amount of every wager on the slot adding to the prize fund.

To land the progressive jackpot prize you need to land the Wild Cherry symbols together with the word Jackpot superimposed over them. You can win the progressive jackpot prize on the slot by playing three coins per bet (the size of the coin is irrelevant, you just need to be playing three coins per bet, however if you bet more per coin size, then you stand a greater chance of landing the progressive prize).

It is a simple enough process to understand how to win the progressive jackpot on the 3X Wild Cherry slot, the problem is that landing it is extremely difficult indeed, as it is with landing any progressive jackpot prize.

Best feature of the 3X Wild Cherry slot

Without doubt the Wild symbol, complete with its 3x multiplier, is the best feature of the slot. It is responsible for many wins in the base game and with the multiplier attached, it can radically increase the value of a win when used with other symbols, particularly those higher value symbols. Land three across the reels and you also trigger the base game jackpot which is 500 coins per coin wagered (so the top prize is 1,500 coins for 3 coins wagered per spin).

What does the 3X Wild Cherry slot lack?

Of course, a retro slot like 3X Wild Cherry does lack a Free Spins element to the slot and if you are a big fan of this type of bonus, then maybe you should look elsewhere. However, the Wild Multiplier symbol, some decent base game wins and that progressive jackpot prize do mean that the 3X Wild Cherry slot still has plenty going for it.

Conclusion

3X Wild Cherry is a very solid retro-styled slot from WGS Technology, that has the added attraction of a progressive jackpot bonus being available if you wager the full three coins per spin. The game is simple to follow, an ideal game for a new slots player to cut their teeth in the world of progressive jackpot gaming. The lack of bonus features do mean that if you want a more variable gaming experience, there are better options out there, but as a retro-styled slot with a progressive jackpot twist, 3X Wild Cherry does hit the mark nicely.

Ratings

  • Presentation: 11 / 20 - As a retro-styled slot, 3X Wild Cherry is never going to be the most ambitious game when it comes to visuals and effects. It does capture the "1980s" slot vibe quite nicely but there's no denying that when compared to some of the more modern slots with all their video, animations and bonus features, the 3X Wild Cherry slot does look like the somewhat poorer relation.
  • Game-play: 13 / 20 - The crux of a good slot always comes in terms of the game play and to be fair, 3X Wild Cherry is a fun slot to play. If you are a child of the 80s and grew up playing games like this in arcades and then eventually public houses, then there's a lot of fun to be had here. More modern players may find the lack of features make the game play a little repetitive, but if you like simple, retro slots, 3X Wild Cherry ticks all the right boxes.
  • Bonus Features: 13 / 20 - Although this WGS Technology release doesn't have a Free Spins bonus round, it does have a fantastic Wild Multiplier bonus feature which can radically increase the value of the wins it is part of, as well as offering a chance at the top jackpot prizes in the base game. Add to that a progressive jackpot too and you have a retro slot which actually has some very decent features, more associated with more modern games.
  • Entertainment Factor: 13 / 20 - How you view how much fun to play the 3X Wild Cherry slot is, will depend on your view of retro slots. If you love them, then you will undeniably love what is on offer in the slot, however if you find retro slots more repetitive and not as exciting as modern 5-reel games, then you will likely find that is the case here too. Personally, I think wit the Wild Multiplier and progressive jackpot to chase, the 3X Wild Cherry slot is one of the better and more engaging retro slot games.
  • Play Value: 11 / 20 - As a simpler game, don't be fooled into thinking the 3X Wild Cherry is a somewhat benign slot. This is a medium to higher variance game and it can see you work your way through a bankroll quite quickly, especially if you are wagering sizeable amounts per spin. The slot is less volatile when played for smaller amounts, but it is well worth playing 3 coins rather than 1 or 2 as you then have a chance to play for the progressive jackpot prize.
  • Overall 61 / 100 - There's a lot to like on the 3X Wild Cherry slot. The addition of Wild Multipliers and a progressive jackpot give the slot a few added embellishments which make it good fun to play. The base game is solid enough, if perhaps a little tough to win on at times, but that is the nature of most 3-reel slots. It is a slot that is best played when wagering three coins rather than one, so that should be factored into your reasoning, but as retro-slots go, 3X Wild Cherry has plenty to enjoy for all retro slot players.

Good Luck!
