Playson Clover Tales Slot Review and Free Play

Clover Tales: Demo

Clover Tales is a classic Irish luck-themed video slot from Playson. It’s a 5 reel, 9 payline game that features leprechauns, fairies and magical rainbows and comes with re-spins and free spins with expanding and wandering wilds. Play on all devices from between 27p and £90 per spin.

There’s a gentle feel to the design in Clover Tales – a lush green valley forms the backdrop to the reels where you’ll see a snoozing leprechaun outside his cabin. Lower value A to J symbols spin around the reels alongside a horse shoe, a pipe and a 4-leaf clover. The best of the standard symbols are the ginger-bearded leprechaun and the pointy-eared elf which offer payouts of up to 16 times your stake per payline. More rewarding still is the pot of gold which is the wild – land 5 of these on a payline and you’ll pocket a payout of some 26 times your total stake.

A rainbow will form a backdrop on 1 of the paylines on each spin – land a winner on this payline and it will developer some magical properties. On each spin, you’ll notice a rainbow positioned on 1 of the game’s 9 paylines. This rainbow has some magical properties:

  • Rainbow Wild feature – land a wild on a rainbow and it expands to fill the whole of the reel.
  • Re-spins feature – if you hit a winning combination on the rainbow line that is made up of the horse shoe, pipe or 4-leaf clover symbol, you’ll trigger this feature. There are 2 modes here. Either the triggering symbols becomes sticky wilds on your re-spin or they turn into shifting wilds and move.
  • Free Spins feature – if you land a winner featuring the higher value elf or leprechaun symbols on the rainbow line, you’ll receive 5 free spins. Once again, there are 2 modes which can help your winning chances. In the Random Expand Wilds mode, between 1 and 5 expanding wilds are in play on each free spin. In Wandering Expand Wild mode, an expanding wild hits on reel 5 on the first free spin then works its way across the screen, 1 reel at a time on each free spin.

Video slots featuring lucky leprechauns are usually manic affairs. This is much gentler and laid back. The range of extras isn’t very wide but it does offer some very playable action. If you enjoy the fortune theme but hanker something a little less slapstick than usual then Clover Tales is worth a look. I also suggest you try Yggdrasil Gaming’s Rainbow Ryan which is excellent.
