Cherry Sports Review
Cherry Casino is one of the many European bookmakers venturing into the Sportsbook sector of online gambling. With its signature cherry logo and branding found all over the site, you can be certain of which bookmaker you’re on when exploring the website, except if you’re from the US as you cant access the site from this country. The company itself started way back in 1963 as a bricks and mortar casino, and launched online in the early 2000s. It has a pretty good reputation online, is licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority, and aims to practise responsible gaming across Sports, Casino, Live Casino and Lotto.
Most recently, Cherry Casino has opened its Sportsbook to much acclaim. Currently offering over 18,000 live events and 60,000 pre-match markets, you can be sure to find your perfect bet within this section of platform. A variety of the most popular sports around the world are available on the site, including all the major Football leagues, Tennis, Basketball and more to dig your teeth into. Unfortunately at this stage, no Horse Racing is available on the site, but hopefully this is something rectified in the future by Cherry Casino. You can easily switch between Live, Imminent and Upcoming events on the site, in addition to viewing featured leagues and even using the handy search bar if you know what you’re looking for. Most likely because the Sportsbook seems quite new, there doesn’t seem to be any Sportsbook focused promotions to take advantage of at the current time, but generally the odds seem reasonable competitive so don’t let this put you off. You can place both Singles and Combos (Accas), if going for the big win is what you’re into.
The Live tab will open up all the games and events currently taking place around the world. Odds update automatically every few seconds as the games progress and scorelines change. The same major sports are on offer here, with a nice visual allowing you to quickly change between a top-level overview or sport specific events taking place. Click on your game of choice and you can some further details, like supporting in-game stats and an engaging visual to keep you involved with play. If you want Live Streaming, a third-party website is recommended.
The Casino and Live Casino sections of Cherry Casino are where the magic happens. NetEnt and MicroGaming’s most popular video slots, the best in the industry, are all available for play within here. You can clearly see what the current Jackpot totals are on games like Empire Fortune and Joker Millions, in addition to recent winners on the site clearly designed to encourage players to dabble on the slots. The Live Casino offers the usual major table games, and you can also tap into some casino bonuses for both new and returning customers.
Usability of the Site
Cherry Casino and Sportsbook is generally very enjoyable to use, with seamless navigation, logical organisation and an obvious emphasis on customer interaction. The distinctive cherry branding and modern graphics are a definitive positive, but it would be better to see a bigger emphasis on the Sportsbook in the future. Cherry Casino offers Visa, Mastercard and the E Wallets Skill and Neteller for both deposits and withdrawals, and offers a 24/7 Live Chat and email service for customer queries. Response times for emails are around 1-2 days, so bear this in mind when contact them about your betting experience, it make sense to try to stick with Live Chat.
Cherry Casino does a lot of things right, which is surprising considering the many pitfalls seen in a lot of bookmakers today. The user interface is seamless, and the entire site is very well put together, contributing to an enjoyable experience. The branding is also more distinctive than most, which will definitely help the bookmaker continue to stand out moving forwards. In future, it would be great to see Sportsbook based Promotions, and generally a bigger emphasis on this area in general.
