Review of Cherry Red Casino
Cherry Red Casino is an offshoot or sister casino to the established and well known Rushmore Casino. The initial impression you receive when browsing the Cherry Red Casino website is one of professionalism. Having seen hundreds of online casino websites, I can confidently state that Cherry Red has one of the best looking websites of any online casino today. Adopting a Roaring 20s inspired theme, it makes good use of flash animation and occasional music to spice things up a bit without being gratuitous, and all the information you need to know is easily found within the site’s clean navigation structure.
Warning - extremely slow payments
Just a general note to warn that customers of the casinos in this group have reported to us incidences of extremely slow payment of winnings. Players should expect to wait at least a month to receive a payment from this group, and each payment is generally capped at a maximum of $2000 per instalment.
Update (November 2012): It appears the casinos for this group have either disappeared or gone out of business without warning. We have added them to our blacklist because even if they do re-appear they have irreparably lost what little trust they may have had with this latest development.
Cherry Red Casino Software
The casino uses Real Time Gaming software that provides a reliable, secure and smooth gaming experience. The graphics and animation used by the games are sophisticated and elegant with all the elements of entertainment included in the package. The online casino has a good selection of games including all the popular types of table games, parlor games, slots and video poker. If you would prefer not to download or install anything you can even use the instant play flash version of the casino in your browser.
Cherry Red Casino hosts a diverse range of casino games including Blackjack, Craps, Video poker, Baccarat, Let it Ride Poker, Caribbean Poker, Pai Gow Poker and European (single zero) Roulette. The casino also offers players a great selection of slot games such as the Skeet Shooter Slot which is a nine pay line slot with a unique bonus feature, the classic slot or the "US Slot;" then there are also the Pirates Gold slots, Super Sevens slots, Wild West Slots, Fortune Slots and a variety of other progressive and non-progressive slots with jackpots reaching well into six figures.
Cherry Red Bonuses and Promotions
Cherry Red Casino offers a huge 400% sign up bonus (up to $2400) for slots players on their first deposit at the casino. The site also offers several other promotions and bonuses for players to take advantage of including weekly bonuses, weekend bonuses, reload bonuses when using their preferred deposit methods, and blackjack-specific or video poker-specific bonuses for players who do not wish to play slots.
Banking Options and Security
Cherry Red Casino has a wide variety of options available for players to make financial transactions with the site, which should make it relatively painless to get your money into and out of the casino. We say "should" though, because despite earning for itself a stellar reputation over the past few years, in recent times we have received reports of slow payments and strict adherence to the paltry $2000 per week withdrawal limit.
The operator treats security and fraud prevention as paramount, so in addition to the use of strong encryption on all transactions, you should expect to have to provide a copy of an identification document before making your first withdrawal.
Overall Cherry Red Casino offers a polished presentation that is unfortunately not backed up in the payment processing department. American players with their restricted choice may want to check the casino out provided you understand the likelihood of slow payments and a low withdrawal limit. Players from other countries have far better options.
