Doesn't it seem as though Pragmatic Play is on a roll right now? And by that, we don't mean they're standing on a bun, but rather releasing some top online slot games that are taking online casino players by storm. Clover Gold is the latest 5 reel creation to come from this stable's production line, and while collect features are nothing new, you might just appreciate the boosters given to the collections you can make. Not only that, but you'll also find a free spins feature that can be triggered by landing enough bonus symbols. Let’s slide on down that rainbow into the reels of Clover Gold and see what chances are in store.
So, about Pragmatic Play. What a run of form this iGaming studio has found itself on. We've noticed that they've fully embraced the collect feature that you'll again find in Clover Gold, and they've been doing quite well compared to other studios also making full use of this new trend. Recent releases from Pragmatic such as Rainbow Gold and Barn Festival, which you can also play here, are examples of what to expect with the collect feature. We won't dive too far into the theme, which includes the looks and feel of Clover Gold, as it's all Irish. This isn't anything against our Irish friends; it's just that everyone has seen enough Irish themed online slots to know exactly what to expect when the game opens up.
Like most slots online from Pragmatic, there isn't too much volatility in Clover Gold, so expect wins to not be too hard to come by, but do so with lower returns than very volatile titles. There are 20 paylines on which 3, 4 and 5 of a kind winning combinations can land, regardless of whether you’re playing on mobile or desktop. Playing for big wins is something you’ll definitely be able to do, due to the maximum stake limit of 100 per spin. If you’re someone who prefers casino games to reward you at a slower pace, with lower, consistent returns, then the wagering limits start all the way down at 0.20. However, the highest return Clover Gold can award of 5,000x your stake is best served from a wager that carried more weight than not.
There’s a selection of symbols in Clover Gold that will do more than simply form 3, 4 and 5 of a kind winning combinations. Look out for the clover falling on reels 1 – 4, as this one carries cash value you'll want to collect. There's also a bonus symbol that triggers free play, as well as a wild icon that substitutes the regular symbols to complete potential wins. There are five extra symbols that all say collect, which we'll explain later.
You'll have regular symbols landing on the reels most of the time. These don't have the flash of the symbols listed above, but bring in the cash. The mushrooms, beer mug, Irish lady and leprechaun are all higher paying, while the playing card royals J, Q, K and A are lower in value.
As mentioned earlier, the clovers with cash values displaying fall only on reels 1 – 4. The collect icons will only fall on reel 5. Should you land one or more clovers on reels 1 – 4 on the same spin that a collect icon lands on reel 5, then the value/s of the clovers are collected and paid to you. There are five different collect symbols, with one simply collecting values attached to clovers, while the four others modify the reels to make the collection more valuable. With the other collect icons, you'll see added value such as clover cash values being increased, clover icons expanding to create more collections, and potential respins to add more clover symbols.
Landing 3 or more bonus symbols will trigger the free spins feature, where players are given eight spins where the value of each spin is not deducted from your account. For every four collect icons of any type you land during free spins, eight more spins are added, plus a 2x multiplier is applied to wins. If another four are collected, then a 3x multiplier is applied, and a final 5x multiplier for collecting 12 collect icons during free spins.
We really are thankful that the collect feature is now almost standard in a large portion of Pragmatic Play online slot machines, because it just makes it all more interesting. The entertainment value of online casino games has been raised thanks to this addition, so whether playing for reel money or as a free slot in demo mode, you'll still be having some fun. We aren't too sure whether Clover Gold or Rainbow Gold is the better slot, but we guess you'll just have to play both to decide for yourself.
