We think it’s fair to say that fruit slots aren’t the most exciting games, but what if you add some steampunk to the mix? The answer is Mechanical Clover which combines classical fruit machine gaming with an exciting steampunk theme. The inspiration for Mechanical Clover comes from another BGaming slot that saw its release 2 years ago. Mechanical Orange is the predecessor, so if you have played that slot, then Mechanical Clover might feel familiar to you. Now it’s up to us to find out which version is superior.
Mechanical Clover is also the first BGaming entry on our review page, which is always a welcoming sign. There is a certain excitement, in introducing a new provider to our readers. Every studio has its own style which is always interesting to discover. BGaming have a fairly large portfolio of games, so they are quite experienced in the field. There is a significant quality difference between their older and newer games, so BGaming have come a long way with improvements. Today we focus just on the Mechanical Clover though, so let’s get right into it.

Mechanical Clover Slot Review
Gameplay and Payouts
To delight or displeasure to some, the Mechanical Clover slot uses a 3 reel 3 row set up. This is the original fruit machine layout style, which hasn’t been that popular in the modern days, but the presentation is vibrant and good-looking so you almost forget this slot’s classical roots. It uses the steampunk visual style, so the layout is mechanical and rustic. With the upbeat music playing in the background we can safely say that BGaming have produced one gorgeous presentation. The idea to combine slot fruits with steampunk is very elaborate too.
Due to the small game layout, Mechanical Clover only comes with 5 lines, but these can extend up to 27 during one of the bonus features. BGaming have taken the regular fruit symbols and remade them into a steampunk fashion, with metal plates and bolts. Starting from the lowest value we got cherries, plums, oranges, lemons, watermelons, bells, hats and finally the red sevens, iconic as always. Additionally to these 8 regular symbols comes the wild, which drops only on the middle reel. We especially enjoyed the way that these symbols are presented, as many providers tend to slack off, giving us some basic fruits symbols with no extra touch.
Luckily for most of us, these days when providers decide to do a fruit slot, the payouts match the modern standards. An especially positive sign is the Mechanical Clover RTP, which is a high 96.80%. Volatility is medium, so expect a fairly frequent distribution of wins. All this sounds well, but the highest single win can only go up to 750x, so you will have to rely on multiple successful hits if you want to get a high profit. Mechanical Clover is well optimized on all devices, granting a bet range of 0.10 – 50.
Another modern trend is to add bonus features to classic fruit slots, which Mechanical Clover does well. The features on Mechanical Clover perhaps aren’t as complete as a whole separate bonus game, but they add enough to make Mechanical Clover much more exciting. Instead of the scatter, the wild symbol is the most important aspect. Once you land a wild symbol, which successfully completes a winning combination, a Respin Bonus is triggered. This bonus increases lines from 5 to 27. It also provides 1 to 6 respins, which come with an increased multiplier for every new spin. This multiplier goes from 2x to 7x. Symbols that complete the winning combination stays on the game reels for future respins, while symbols that don’t simply disappear.
For most cases, we don’t consider Risk Game as a separate feature, but on Mechanical Clover it's so nice that we couldn’t resist. Players will be given 4 cards. The card that the player draws must be larger than the card that the dealer shows. If you win your winnings are doubled. Players can gamble up to 10 times.
It’s no secret that fruit machines can be a bit boring, at least for those who are more used to modern 5x3 gaming. Mechanical Clover does a good job of taking something simple and turning it into a fun-filled game. We found the visual presentation delightful and the bonus feature, although minor, was still rewarding and satisfying. All in all, BGaming have nicely transformed their two-year-old slot idea into something new and refreshing.
