Clover Gold Pragmatic Play
After the success of Pragmatic Play’s 2020 release Big Bass Bonanza and Reel Kingdom, it’s no big surprise to see a series of follow-ups. As of now, this has included the Bigger Bass Bonanza, the Megaways version, as well as a Christmas rendition. However, fish only stay fresh for a long time out of water, so the studio has made the smart decision to move the gameplay to a whole new setting. Well, not really new as the resulting Clover Gold slot is Irish/Leprechaun themed. As part of the move from land to sea, Pragmatic Play has come up with some new stuff in the form of a special Collect Symbol that can enhance the core features of the Money Symbol Collection.
So yeah, that means we’re off to the Emerald Isle once again, a land of green hills, blue skies, and magical characters. Players can find all of these things on or around the 5×3 game grid, 20-payline, while the jolly Celtic tune is on your ear. Pragmatic Play already have a number of Irish themed slots under their belt, and Clover Gold is built to the usual standards, not knocking out or bad for your eyes.
Behind an emerald green screen, Clover Gold runs on a medium volatile mathematical model, which comes in three forms of RTP, of which the default is the 96.54% version. Winning limits are equally respectable, and bigger wins are more likely during free spins with a Money Symbol multiplier in them. Any device is suitable for sampling Clover Gold, while stakes of 20 p/c up to £/€100 per spin can be set.
The Money Symbol Collection may be the most exciting way to win cash in Clover Gold, but regular line wins should also be considered. At the bottom of the payout table is the J-A card rank tile which pays out 2.5x the bet for five of a kind, then there are the high paying mushrooms, beer mugs, female characters and Leprechauns, worth 3.75x-12.5x for five-stroke symbols. Landing on reels 2-5 is a wild symbol that replaces one of the normal paying tiles.
Clover Gold Slot Features
There is a large collection of symbols in Clover Gold, if your luck is hot. The four-leaf clover, in this case, is the Money Symbol, appearing on reels 1, 2, 3, and 4. If the Money Symbol lands together with the Collect Symbol on reel 5, the Money Symbol value is awarded. In this game, there are 5 types of Collect symbols:
Collect – the standard Money Symbol collection occurs.
Extra Collect – the value of this symbol is added to all Money Symbols on the reels.
Multiplier Collect – the value of all Money Symbols viewed is multiplied by the value of this symbol before being paid out.
Expanding Collect – all reels containing at least one Money Symbol are expanded to fill the entire reel with Money Symbols.
Respins Collect – all Money Symbols and Collect Symbols in view are locked in place while remaining positions are replayed for a chance to earn additional Money Symbols.
Hitting 3 bonus symbols on reels 2, 3, and 4 grants 8 free spins. The free spins work the same as the base game rounds, except that Collect Symbols are collected on the way when they hit as well. Each 4th Collect Symbol added to the trail grants +8 additional free spins as well as a x2 multiplier for the first trigger, x3 for the second trigger, and x5 for the third trigger. After the third trigger, the feature cannot be triggered again. The multiplier is applied to the winnings of the Money Symbol collection.
There are several ways to view Clover Gold. One, it’s the answer to players calling for more use of the Big Bass Bonanza dynamic, but in a jolly Irish setting. In this case, Pragmatic Play is simply giving fans of the slots what they want to play. Fair fees. Another way of processing Clover Gold is a little more cynical. You know how something can grow unexpectedly in a big way, then catch the attention of others who rush to cash in before fashion explodes? Let’s use cryptocurrency as an example. After the surprising success of coin memes like Doge, a bunch of wannabes have sprung up behind it, like the Shiba Inu and Elon Musk-related tokens like Lorde Edge, Dogelon Mars, and who knows how many others. What’s amazing is how popular this bandwagon meme coin was before the tapestry was pulled, leaving star-eyed speculators investing pots jumping on hopiums chasing millions x burnt profits.
Where are we? Oh yes, Gold Clover. Well, Clover Gold feels a bit like that but avoids the problem because Pragmatic Play (and Reel Kingdom) were the originators of the Big Bass Bonanza, after all – with a bit of Fishin’ Frenzy inspiration. And to their credit, they’ve injected some new stuff into Clover Gold to explain its existence. This new bit is an alternative to Collect Symbols. Not the main switcharoo, but they added something new. It might help some players if Clover Gold isn’t a generic themed slot, but then again, Leprechaun is the white-hot in the online gambling scene, and no doubt Pragmatic Play have done their market research instead of just throwing darts in the dark.
However, pursuing low-hanging fruit means Pragmatic Play is hardly bold in their choice of subjects, and Clover Gold divides its potential audience into fans and haters of this slot’s theme. Many in the former group had to be happy with the familiar sensation pot Clover Gold, while the latter group had to settle for Big Bass Bonanza, for now, unless Pragmatic launches this alt-Collect Symbol in future games, which isn’t hard to imagine.
