Head to any online casino and you’ll usually find a whole host of games with a Luck o’ the Irish theme and this is another slot to add to that mix. Many of these Irish themed games feature a leprechaun. This slot goes a little further with three of the characters, two males and a female, all happily smiling out from the reels.
As well as the opportunity to win some huge pay-outs across a large number of lines, you’ll find an interesting bonus feature where a cash prize or free spins will be heading your way.
This Amaya designed slot is played out over five reels, although with four symbols on each of the reels, this slot is slightly larger than your average game. Due to the expanded set up, there are a total of 100 win lines. Players can opt to play any number between 1 and 100. A look at the pay table shows that wins come your way when you hit three or more in a row from left to right, with the biggest wins reserved for five in a row.
The title symbol is the highest paying in the entire game, with a very impressive 5,000 coins hitting your pocket for the maximum five in a row, while one of the cheery male leprechauns who looks like he is mid-jig pays 2,500 coins. The female leprechaun in a large hat and a male leprechaun smoking a pipe pay 1000 and 750 coins respectively and are joined on the reels by a smiling rabbit and a cheeky looking squirrel. The standard symbols are completed by the playing cards 10, J, Q, K and A.
The wild symbol is represented by a large gold coin, which I’m guessing was found in the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. This coin will substitute for any other symbol in the game apart from the bonus symbol. Unusually, this wild doesn’t offer any wins by itself, but it will enable some nice payouts with other symbols.
The bonus symbol shows that rainbow with a pot of gold and makes an appearance on reels 1 and 5. When the symbols appears on both of these reels during the same spin, you’ll enter the bonus feature. You’ll now be taken to a pick me round where there are a total of 15 boxes on the screen and you’ll pick them in turn. The various boxes will uncover either a cash prize or a number of free spins and when you find yourself with three matching symbols, that will be your prize.
If you win the cash prize, this will be credited to your account immediately and the feature is over. However, if you win the free spins feature (you’ll be awarded either 10 or 15 free spins), these free games will begin now. During the free spins, there is no bonus symbol, so the feature cannot be retriggered, but there is a nice added bonus. Replacing the bonus symbol is an expanding wild, which will now fill an entire reel every time it appears. This expanding wild can lead to some amazing wins, where many of the 100 win lines can pay out at once.
As you might imagine at an Irish themed slot, there is much green everywhere. The backdrop to the reels shows a countryside scene with rolling hills while a vine winds itself around the top of the reels. The symbols have a nice cartoon feel and stand out well against the pale blue background of the reels. Every time you hit spin you’re met by a jaunty Irish tune played on the fiddle which adds a nice level of atmosphere to the game, transporting you to the delights of Ireland. The only thing missing from the reels is a pint of Guinness!
Cash n Clovers is an enjoyable fun game, but if it’s a game that you’ll want to play again and again is open to question. The sound and visuals are good and the fact that you have 100 pay lines sets it slightly apart. The bonus feature is also a good one – keeping you on your toes as you wonder whether or not you’ll win cash or free spins. There are many games with a similar genre and this game doesn’t quite match up to the best in this field.
