Find your Pot of Gold in Clover Tales! This is a remarkable video slot coming from the designers of Playson. The attention to detail, the flawless visuals and the amazing bonus features will surely have you come back for more. We had an amazing time testing Clover Tales and we have absolutely no doubts that you will enjoy playing it as well.
Clover Tales feature a 5x3 symbol grid and 9 paylines in total. Players cannot increase or decrease the number of active lines. Due to the odd number of paylines, the minimum and the maximum bet take uncommon amounts. For example, casual players can enjoy the game with entry bets of 0.27, whereas the maximum bet is 90. In order to win the jackpot of 2,500 you need to land 5 wild symbols on a winning line. This makes the Clover Tales an alluring video slot from the perspective of a casual player. Moreover, you need to place the maximum bet to win 2,500.
Surprisingly, the theoretical RTP of Clover Tales is below the market average. It’s a modest 95.64%, making it unappealing to players who are pursuing great and frequent wins.
It has impeccable graphics, stellar animations and easily recognizable symbols. Clover Tales simply captivates with its visual and audio qualities. In addition to its external qualities, Clover Tales comes with a wide array of bonus features with advanced mechanics. It also introduces a one of a kind element for the Playson portfolio called the Rainbow Line.
The Pot of Gold is the Wild symbol, and it substitutes for any other symbol to form a winning line. It should be duly noted that the Wild symbol appears on reels 2, 3 or 4 only. Once it interacts with the Rainbow Line a special feature is triggered, but more about that later in this review. Besides this symbol, you also want to see as many as possible Fairies, Leprechauns, Horseshoes, Pipes and Clovers. These symbols play key roles because they are the bonus feature triggering factors.
We have to be straight with you, it took us some time to get a good understanding of the bonus features. Although they’re similar, they work rather differently. We’ll start off with a brief explanation of the Rainbow Line.
Rainbow Line – It appears during the base game, during every single spin. One of the nine active lines turns into a Rainbow Line, setting the grounds for Free Spins or Re-Spins. Depending on which symbols land on the Rainbow Line, the respective Rainbow Bonus feature is triggered.
Random Expanding Wild Free Spins – Undeniably, it’s a long name for a bonus feature. Whenever Leprechauns or Fairies interact with a Wild symbol on a winning line, this is one of the features that can trigger. 5 Free Spins are awarded and 1 to 5 Expanding Wilds land on the reels.
Wandering Expanding Wild Free Spins – The trigger mechanic is the same, however, this bonus feature works differently. Unlike the aforementioned, during the 1st spin the Expanding Wild lands on the 5th
reel. With each spin, the Expanding Wild moves one reel to the left. In essence, the two bonus features are identical.
Re-Spin with Frozen Wilds – Keep an eye on the Clover, the Horseshoe and the Pipe because these are the symbols that trigger Re-Spins in Clover Tales. Once triggered, the symbols that were part of the winning line that triggered the said bonus feature, turn into Sticky or Frozen Wilds. These wild symbols are locked in place for the Re-Spin.
Re-Spin with Shifting Wild Symbols – It works pretty much the same, however, this time around the symbols aren’t locked into place. Instead, they take take different positions, ergo the term Shifting Wilds.
Playson really kicked it up a notch with Clover Tales. You don’t have to be an expert to notice the hard work that was put into designing it. Everything from the visuals, to the audio, to the rather amusing bonus features was delivered with outstanding quality. We totally recommend this slot to any player, mobile or desktop, it doesn’t matter.
