Charms and Clovers (Betsoft)
Charms and Clovers is Betsoft’s take on Irish-themed slots, with a leprechaun to run the show of course, and there are enough magical features here to make the slot a firm favorite of all players who enjoy the genre. You can win up to 350,000 credits in Charms and Clovers, and there are numerous bonus features that deliver big wins.
Charms and Clovers is a 4×5 slot with 40 paylines, with a sixth reel that can bring you six-of-a-kind and also provides access to four bonus features. The game, released in 2016, features some of the best graphics seen in slots, and is definitely among the best Irish-themed slots when it comes to graphics. While the Irish theme has been done before and relies on same symbols every time, Betsoft managed to make it feel fresh and a bit better than what the other slot developers have done in the past.
Leprechaun is the main symbol and he appears on your reels as well as on the side of your reels, and can even become a giant 3×3 symbol. There are seven more main symbols: Rainbow, 7, Clover, Pot of Gold, Horseshoe, Beer and Bar. There are also four more card symbols for a total of twelve paying symbols in the game. There is also a Wild symbol, and there are no Scatters as this game uses the sixth trigger for the purpose of triggering bonus features.
The sixth reel can trigger one of the following four bonus features: Money Wheel can earn you anything from 4x your bet to a 40x prize or a Mini Jackpot. With a max bet, this can rise up to 100x prize and a Giant or Colossal Jackpot, which are seen above your reels. Mega Symbol introduces a giant 3×3 Leprechaun for the duration of free spins, and you’ll get 8 of these. In Golden Bonus you’ll follow the Leprechaun and choose a Pot of Gold to earn a cash prize. In Pots of Gold, you’ll get 8 free spins and Golden Coin Wilds will be added to reel stripes before each spin.
Payout and value
Theoretical return to player (RTP) of Charms and Clovers is 96.3%, which is a good sign, and it means this game really pays well and isn’t just one of those slots which are full of features and forget to actually pay. You can really find a pot of gold somewhere in Charms and Clovers, Leprechaun’s fortune is waiting for you. The game has a bit of a high variance and the potential of big wins is here, with the maximum being 350,000 credits, and with all those bonus features that can bring you a big win. The sixth reel which isn’t included in the paylines yet can form a six-of-a-kind is a nice advantage for the player, and overall this is a very enjoyable playing experience that keeps hitting you with bonus features from all sides.
