Overview Mechanical Clover
BGaming invites you to come and play one of their latest slot creations – Mechanical Clover. As you can probably tell from the name, there is something dualistic about the theme of this slot. Indeed, Mechanical Clover joins the two quite disparate themes of steampunk and the luck of the Irish, in a truly bizarre yet intriguing game. This aesthetic choice has led to symbols like the classic fruit symbols being meddled with to make them look like they are made of steel, as well as other strange visual cues.
In many ways though, Mechanical Clover is just a normal online fruity machine with the traditional set of 3 reels and 5 pay lines. There are a few decent features, which include wild symbols, which as they usually do, substitute in for normal symbols to create wins. Other bonuses include the respins feature, which gives you more pay lines to win on as well as frozen symbols and a handful of useful multipliers. Once you wrap your head around the clashing themes, and strange steel and steam elements everywhere, Mechanical Clover is a pretty great game with a solid return to player percentage and a fun outlook.
Theme and Symbols
Mechanical Clover from a visual point of view is all about marrying the fun and colourful symbols of the classic luck of the Irish theme with the industrial aesthetic of steampunk. The theme takes its inspiration from the studio’s previous title: Mechanical Orange, where steampunk was more overtly the flavour of the game.
As we have said, the theme rather works despite its strange combination of influences. The background for example looks to be a warehouse with a wooden floor. On top of this background is the playing board, which looks like some sort of Frankenstein’s Monster of neon, pistons, bellows, and lightbulbs. It continuously hisses, beeps and grinds away in the background like an invention from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Far from being off-putting, however, it is entertaining to watch and listen to, forming a pleasing background motion to the game.
In terms of symbols, they are a steampunk take on very traditional old-school slot symbols. You have Lucky 7’s, Bells, various fruits (oranges, plums, watermelons and cherries) and a Leprechaun’s hat, all with their individual steampunk twist. The wild symbol for this game is the lucky four-leafed clover. It can only land on the middle reel. It has another use too, which you will discover when reading about this game’s bonus features.
Mechanical Clover is played on a 3-reel, 3-row playing board with 5 available pay lines. This is about as classic as online slots get in terms of structure. To create wins, players must match 3 symbols in a row across a pay line from left to right.
The betting range for Mechanical Clover is 2p to £5 per spin. To change their current stake, players can toggle their amount using the arrows located on the bottom of the screen slightly to the left-hand side. The spin and auto spin buttons are located on the right-hand side of the reels. Additional information, including the paytable, is available by clicking on the ‘I’ button located at the very bottom left-hand corner of the screen.
The return to player percentage for Mechanical Clover is 96.8%, a little over average for a game of this type. The volatility for this slot is rated in the medium range. The top payout available for this game on one spin is 760x your current stake, a not exactly impressive win.
The first feature that is noticeable in this game is the wilds feature. The wild (the four-leafed clover) can step in for any other symbol to help create a win. However as alluded to earlier, this is not its only function. When the wild helps form a win, it triggers the game’s re-spins round. For this bonus, the pay lines are expanded to 27.
When this feature is triggered players are awarded a completely random number of re-spins in the range of 1 to 6. Throughout the feature, the winning symbols which helped trigger the bonus round will also be frozen in place, helping you to score more wins. If this wasn’t enough, the re-spins round also comes with a collection of multipliers. The round starts with a 2x multiplier and increases by 1x for every respin up to 7x.
The second available feature for this game is called the Risk Game. It’s a mini-card game that is played within the confines of the larger game. It is a game of beat the dealer where you have to pick from a range of face-down cards and pick one by chance that is higher than the dealer’s card. Various awards await you should you guess correctly.
In terms of reasons to play Mechanical Clover, there are quite a few. These include the above-average RTP, the fun and novel theme as well as the exciting bonus games. On the con side, the top payout isn’t all that great, plus the restricted pay lines are dwarfed in comparison to some of the newer game format releases. However, if classic symbols, wacky graphics and a good math model are your top priorities, this is the game for you.
