New Online Pokie For St Patrick’s Day
February 26, 2018
Online casino players love St Patrick’s Day and celebrate it with gusto. Australian online casinos help by offering new games and promotions. The first of the block this year is Tangiers Casino with an online pokie titled 40 Mega Clover. It is from the games supplier EGT. 40 stands for 40 fixed paylines and Mega Clover stands for a mega stack of the wild four leaf clover, which has become an icon for St Patrick’s Day.
40 Mega Clover has the standard 5x3 structure and uses retro symbols from classic pokies. This has become the trend nowadays because these simple symbols are suited for the small screens of smartphones, which is the device of choice for online gaming. The symbols include 7, bell, $, horseshoe, grapes, melon, plum, orange, lemon and cherries. The bold and colourful 3D artwork adds to the appeal and the win animations are fiery. These symbols also appear stacked on the reels.
The clover is the wild symbol. It substitutes for all symbols other than the scatter. It also awards the highest line payouts with a combination of five symbols paying 2000 times the line bet. The star is the scatter symbol. The top scatter payout for five stars anywhere on the reels is 400 times the total bet. The payout table adjusts with the amount bet and shows the absolute amount.
There are no free spins or other bonus features. There is an optional gamble game that you can activate after any win less than a specified amount that varies with the line bet. You have to select Red or Black. If the colour selected matches with the colour of the dealt card your payout will be doubled. Otherwise the payout will be lost. You can activate the gamble game up to five times on successful wins.
The highlight of 40 Mega Clover is the four tier Jackpot Cards progressive network. It can be randomly triggered after any spin of any bet. When the feature is triggered, you see 12 face down cards on the screen. You keep picking and revealing a playing card suit for each card. When you get three cards of the same suit you win the progressive jackpot associated with that suit.
40 Mega Clover will have variance on the higher side, especially because the Spades progressive jackpot can pay in millions. The maximum total bet is AU$800, which will bring in the high roller players.
