So, you’ve had your fair share of steampunk games and you’ve had more than enough Irish luck themed video slot games, what’s next on the horizon for yourself you might be asking. Well, BGaming has an idea, why not combine the two genres and see what happens? And that’s exactly what they did with this video slot of theirs.
That’s right, steampunk mixed with lucky clovers. This might not be a combination you ever thought you would ever have seen but it actually works quite well.
The familiarity of both themes is a nice comfort in this otherwise completely new and wildly different scene. If you were getting a bit tired of one setting or the other, the addition of the new element might be what you need to come back in full swing.
Let’s take a look and see what’s new, what isn’t and how a mesh of the two vastly different themes works in this video slot game.
Theme & Symbols
As we’ve already mentioned, this slot game takes bits and pieces from both the steampunk theme and the Irish luck setting and adds them together to make something brand new. Not only is this refreshing to see and play but it also opens up the door to other genres being added together, the possibilities are nearly endless.
The grid is situated in a classic steampunk themed laboratory with not much to see in the background, they want all of your attention focused on the glowing green contraption they have in front of you. Steam is constantly pouring out of the mechanical grid, giving off the feeling that it’s constantly working. A mysterious green fog is seemingly trapped behind the reels which is a very pretty effect.
The sound track, while a little goofy, is oddly enough a perfect fit for the setting. It doesn’t take itself too seriously nor is it too overwhelming. The same goes for the sound effects, everything comes together nicely and runs well.
Overall, the presentation of this game is superb. It’s exactly what you would imagine an amalgamation of the two themes would look like.
Symbols are inspired by the classics except given makeovers to look like they were constructed from metal. There are metallic versions of cherries, plums, oranges, lemons, watermelons and of course there are the unforgettable 7’s and bells. There is also a unique looking top hat and goggles which adds an extra flavour to the game.
There is a Wild icon present in this game that is represented by mechanical looking clovers. This Wild can substitute any other common icon in the game and can only appear on the middle most reel. Should a Wild land a special gameplay bonus is triggered.
Online Betting Options & Features
Mechanical Clover is a 3×3 video slot game developed by BGaming. There are a total of 5 paylines during the base game but that increases to 27 during bonus spins. The RTP of this title sits at around 96.8%.
A Wild landing on the central reel and completing a winning combo will activate bonus spins called the Respin Bonus. During this Respin Bonus, all 27 paylines are active and will provide between 1 – 6 respins. There is a multiplier bonus that increases with each new respin that caps out at x7. Symbols that earn a winning combo during a respin will remain on the grid and those that didn’t contribute to the win will fall away and spin again.
There is also a feature called the Risk Game that is available to you after every winning spin. Should you decide to play this Risk Game you’ll be asked to select one of four face down cards. If your chosen card is of a higher value than the dealers then you win double your wagered prize. This can be done 10 times sequentially.
