Clover Tales is a 5 reel, 27 payline slot powered by Playson. Playable from 27p to £90 per spin across desktop, mobile and tablet devices, you are taken on a trip to the Emerald Isle to find where the rainbow ends. It comes with a Rainbow Line feature which triggers either free spins or re-spins – you will also benefit from expanding wilds in both the base game and Free Spins features.

Visually, this Irish luck themed game has a peaceful setting as you’ll see a lush Irish meadow with a sleeping leprechaun in his rocking chair in the backdrop. With a soothing soundtrack, it is colourful yet soft – it does look superb as do all Playson titles.

Symbols on the reels include playing cards A, K, Q and J as well as 4-leaf clovers, pipes, lucky horseshoes, leprechauns and fairies. Both the leprechaun and fairy will reward you with nearly 17 times your stake for 5 on a payline. The most rewarding symbol is the pots of gold wild which gives you nearly 28 times your bet for 5 across a payline.

Clover Tales comes with a Rainbow Line feature – during the base game, 1 of the paylines becomes a Rainbow Line. If you like a wild symbol on the Rainbow Line in the base game, it will expand to take over the whole reel – the wild only appears, in the base game, on the 3 middle reels.

If you get a winning combination on that Rainbow Line, you will trigger either Free Spins or Re-spins. If you get a win with the clover, pipe or horseshoe symbols on the Rainbow Line, you will play 1 of 2 Re-spin features:

  • Re-spin with Frozen Wild symbols feature – the symbols that triggered the feature will become frozen wilds which remain in place for the free re-spin that follows.
  • Re-spin with Shifting Wild symbols feature – the winning symbols transform to Shifting Wilds which then randomly change position on the reels for the free re-spin.

If you get a win with leprechaun or fairy symbols on the Rainbow Line, you will access 1 of 2 Free Spins features:

  • Free Spins with Random Expand Wild symbols feature – you will receive 5 free spins with 1 to 5 expanded wilds landing randomly on the reels with every free spin.
  • Free Spins with Wandering Expand Wild feature – you also get 5 free spins with the expand wild landing on reel 5 for the 1st free spin. The Expand Wild moves 1 reel to the left with every free spin.

Clover Tales is typical in theme but the gameplay is definitely unique – I like the fact you can win big in the base game too due to the expanded wilds. When it comes to the bonus features, I like the Free Spins with Random Expand Wild symbols feature as you can benefit from up to 5 expanded wilds on each free spin! Variance wise, it’s medium to high which is just the way I like them. If you like the theme, I recommend Quickspin’s Leprechaun Hills.
