Cherry Gold Casino Review
How’s it hanging, mates? It’s your boy Derrick, coming at ya with another casino review.
Praised be me, for I am the unsung hero who digs deep to find the right online casino for fine folks such as yourself, filling your life with spinning pokies, rotating balls, and heaps of excitement.
Today we are going to take a look at Cherry Gold Casino and, with a name like that, I feel like actually eating some fruit now. Is this going to be a forgettable online casino or is it good enough to make my cherry gold pop? Let’s find out.
About Cherry Gold Casino
Cherry Gold Casino is licensed and regulated in Curacao, Netherlands Antilles, under gaming laws relevant to the purposes of operating and offering internet gambling services.
Cherry Gold Casino is a brother/sister casino to Exclusive Casino (I reviewed this one a while back) and you can spot the similarities from a mile away. Both casino websites boast a fine-looking design where everything is neat and organized. There’s none of that “here are all of our games on a single screen, take your pick.”
The homepage shows the welcome bonus along with just a handful of their hottest games. To view their other games and promotions, all you need to do is scroll down the page and voila!
Unlike Exclusive Casino, Cherry Gold knows that some of us are gunning straight for the jackpot and winning big so it conveniently lists the most recent progressive jackpot and the latest big win. Although it doesn’t mention what pokies have the biggest jackpot, it’s still better than not having this type of info at all.
Overall, it’s a pretty, well-organized website that seems promising enough. However, we can’t really base a review on just the homepage, so let’s dive in a bit deeper.
Time for the bad news for some and good news for others. As with most online casinos, Cherry Gold Casino has a list of restricted countries that aren’t allowed to play.
The good news is that Cherry Gold Casino allows the United Kingdom and US players to play. The bad news is that there’s still a list of restricted countries, albeit a short one. Hopefully, your country isn’t on it.
Restricted countries: Israel, Poland, India, Hungary, Malaysia, Russian Federation, Ukraine, Belarus, China, Romania, Costa Rica.
Cherry Gold Casino Bonuses
While most online casinos provide rather similar (or even the same) types of games, not all casinos will be as appreciative of your invested time. Cherry Gold casino offers its players a couple of bonuses – some steady, some seasonal – which might just give you that extra edge. While it may seem like there are a lot of bonuses at first, many of them change quite often. I will mostly be focusing on the steady (always available) bonuses.
No Deposit Bonus
The art of offering a No Deposit Bonus is almost non-existent in most online casinos. Not in Cherry Gold Casino, though, which was refreshing to see. All you have to do is create an account and you will instantly receive 25 free spins on one of their pokies (these appear to change every now and then). While 25 might not sound like a lot, the fact that you don’t have to pay a dime makes this offer all the more appealing.
The bonus that often makes me decide whether I should stick around or bounce is the welcome bonus. The Cherry Gold Casino welcome bonus offers its players a 270% pokies match bonus with the first deposit.
As long as that initial deposit is at least $25, players can access their account, enter the code “CHERRYSLOTS” and take advantage of the pokies match bonus. Besides seasonal bonuses, it might be a bit disappointing that the bonus ends after this – you won’t be getting any more deposit bonuses until next month. Which brings us to…
Promotion of the Month Bonuses
While there isn’t a bonus for your second or third deposit, each month you can entire two more codes on your account (if you meet the minimum deposit) and claim the promotion of the month.
Players who deposit a minimum of 30$ on their account and enter the code “MORPHEUS” will be able to claim an 80% pokies match bonus along with 15 free spins on the game of the month – the Achilles Deluxe pokie game.
Players who deposit at least 110$ on their account and enter the code “TRINITY” will be able to claim a 185% pokies match bonus along with 20 free spins on the game of the month – the Magic Mushroom.
For the record, you can use both of these codes each month, just make sure you don’t have an active bonus before you activate a new one.
Here’s a cool bonus that not many other casinos use. With the referral bonus, you can get a free chip ($15 chip) for inviting a friend to a game at Cherry Gold Casino.
You may be thinking that your friend can simply enter your name upon registration but I found the process to be needlessly complicated.
First, you have to give your friend a link to join the website, then you wait for them to deposit the money. After they deposit the money ($25 minimum deposit), you have to contact customer support, wait for a confirmation of your friends’ email and deposit – and ONLY AFTER all that hassle will you receive your free chips.
I’d rather prefer an automatic system that awards you as soon as your referred friend makes his/her first deposit. Still, it’s nice to see a casino awards word-of-mouth.
Cherry Gold’s version of loyalty points come in the form of comp points. Whenever you wager a certain amount in your pokies games, you will receive a single comp point. You can redeem these points on your account page for the currency you used to wager. 100 points = $1.
Just like its brother/sister website, Cherry Gold Casino does have a VIP program but in all honesty, it’s badly explained. Supposedly after you earn enough comp points, you will receive your VIP status and a VIP agent. With the status, you will get more coins when playing your games and will be able to increase your maximum cash withdrawal.

Not that many online casinos offer a no deposit bonus. It’s like a lost art of attracting new players that became more of a financial liability than a perk. Luckily for you, Bro, Cherry Gold delivers those free spins in spades – 25 FS to be exact, and you don’t have to spend a dime.
But when you start making those deposits, the Promotion of the Month Bonuses will grant players other free spin opportunities, depending on the bonus code they enter.
Just remember, folks, they apply exclusively to one particular pokie. According to their website, the amount of money won with Free Spins has to be wagered 40x for the following games: European Slot Poker, Video Slots, 3-Reel Slots, Keno, Bingo, and Scratch Cards.
Cherry Gold Casino Games
Jacks or Better
Cherry Gold Casino has about 800 games available. Naturally, the vast majority of these casino games are pokies but the casino also has a handful of table games, video poker, live dealer games and specialty games.
It might be disappointing to some that all games on the Cherry Gold Casino website are made by Realtime Gaming. This isn’t because Realtime gaming makes bad games – far from it – but because online casinos usually have more than one software provider.
As is the case with most online casinos, over 90% of games are pokies. To be exact, Cherry Gold Casino has around 700 pokies. You will probably find something you like (unless you have some sort of beef with Realtime Gaming). Even though pokies aren’t really my main go-to when it comes to gambling, I went ahead and played some of them.
Seeing how I am a greedy bastard, I went straight for Cleopatra’s Gold and Aztec’s Millions. Both of these are kind of similar but very much enjoyable. I really liked all the Egyptian symbols and letters in Cleopatra’s gold which kills the monotony of the usual stars, gems and numbers. Aztec’s gold looks almost identical to Cleopatra’s Gold but sports some better-looking visuals.
Lately, there has been a real shortage of table games. But being ever-the-optimist, every time I go to a new online casino I still get my hopes up. Not today, unfortunately.
With only 20 games available, I didn’t spend much time here. Most of the games here are card games, such as baccarat, texas hold ’em, and blackjack. But there, a single European roulette table stood, almost smiling at me and I just had to give it some much-deserved attention.
Other than that, there were quite a few poker games like Texas hold em bonus poker, Pai Gow Poker vegas three card rummy, Match play 21, Poker Caribbean Stud, Caribbean Hold ’em poker, Let em ride – so I had some decent fun here. Caribbean Stud Poker was particularly enjoyable, probably because I dig pirates so much. Yar!
Video Poker Games
Unfortunately, in terms of quantity, the situation isn’t much better with Video poker. With only 16 games, it didn’t seem like there was much to do here either.
Still, seeing how I barely got my roulette fix, I had to play some poker. For the sake of it all, ya feel me? I’m a simple man. I very much enjoy an occasional game of poker and I was happy to see some of my all-stars poker variations. There was bonus poker, double bonus poker, double jackpot poker, tri card poker, jacks or better and a few others.
Just like its brother/sister website, Cherry Gold Casino also has a Specialty Games Category. In here you can find a total of 10 games ranging from roulette tables, keno, hot dice, sic bo and a few other ones. In other words, I really don’t see a reason as to why this category is separated from other categories, but that’s just me.
Live Casino Games
The live dealer games selection also seems pretty slim with exactly 8 live dealer games available. While I appreciate that they have 4 roulette tables, I doubt that players who revel in live games are going to find much enjoyment with such a small selection of games.
While Cherry Gold Casino doesn’t have a dedicated phone app, it is very mobile-friendly. I tested the casino out on my Samsung Galaxy phone and had no problems. The menus are optimized so they fit on a smaller screen.
Everything is as per usual here. Android, iOS, Windows, Linux users – the whole crowd can find ways to enjoy gambling on the go with this lot.
Speaking of mobile-friendly, Cherry Gold Casino is also desktop friendly. You can download a setup.exe file and download a launcher for the Casino and play it as if you’re running an app. You still need to have an online connection. If for some reason, you have trouble loading certain games, this might be the perfect solution for you.
Cherry Gold Casino Deposit / Withdrawal Methods
Cherry Gold Casino offers only a few payment methods for deposits and withdrawals of real money. This is nothing spectacular but, chances are, you have at least one of these methods. I’m not sure why they accept Visa and MasterCard but not American Express but I guess it’s not such a big deal.
Withdrawal methods: Visa, MasterCard, Wire Transfer
Deposit methods: Visa, MasterCard, BitCoin, Secure Payment Voucher
Withdrawal times: once per week, 3-7 working days
Not too shabby and not too spectacular either. Cherry Gold accepts AUD, USD, EUR, CAD, and ZAR.
With so many reviews that I’ve written, I’ve run out of ways to say how incredibly important customer support is. If you don’t have good customer service, you aren’t going to have recurring customers, simple as that. This is especially true for online casinos.
Live chat customer service is available anywhere on the website and is only a few clicks away from having a live chat with a customer service representative. As I always do in any casino review, Cherry Gold casino got a call from your boy Derrick to see if they know their onions.
I asked a random question about something that I couldn’t find on their terms and conditions page and, unsurprisingly, the customer service live chat representative didn’t know how to answer it. However, he told me to leave him my email and that they would contact me through their email support.
I thought that he was just giving me the usual spiel but, wouldn’t you know it, I received an email shortly afterwards from email support cherrygoldcasino.com where they thoroughly answered my terms and conditions question. Now that’s gold. My casino review Cherry Gold wouldn’t be the same without that info. I cannot praise the support team enough and other customer service providers should look up to them.
At the moment, the only available language seems to be English.
Cherry Gold Casino Review Summary
There were a lot of things that I really liked about Cherry Gold Casino. I liked that they offer a no deposit bonus, their support team was really responsive, and the limited bonuses that cherry gold offers were really appealing.
With that said, I think Cherry gold seems to be lacking a lot of things that are (or at least should be) common for most online casinos. I’d like to see the casino implement more table games, more live dealer games, more banking options, a better welcome bonus and a fully realized VIP system. I don’t know if they have some exclusive deals made, but adding more software providers would probably introduce more variety of games.
To sum up, Cherry Gold Casino is an OK casino – nothing too shabby or too spectacular. Just like it’s brother/sister website Exclusive Casino, it’s worth checking out but probably isn’t really worth being your go-to casino. Again, that’s just me. Maybe this online casino will check all the right boxes, and then some.
Whatever the case, we got you, Bro!
