Clover Rollover 2 Slot Overview
Some 12-years after Clover Rollover graced our screens, the sequel was born and staying true to the original elements. The new developer, Eyecon, has been able to deliver a nostalgic gaming experience with a modern twist. Playtech were the power behind the very first release, but in 2017, the award-winning live casino and slots developer acquired Eyecon for the princely sum of £50m! Running as two separate entities, a deal was struck between the two in 2020 for Eyecon to put their stamp on a classic and that is how Clover Rollover 2 slot emerged.
Renowned for their bingo slots, Eyecon have the skill to deliver an unrivalled selection of bonuses through their unique and innovative style, and Clover Rollover 2 is a testimony to that. Boasting stunning visuals which can only be described as an update on the original, this Irish-themed slot offers all the charms one might expect from the Emerald Isle; four-leaf clovers, pots of gold and even a pint of the good stuff – Guinness!
Boasting a low volatility reel engine, the 5-reel, 5-win line title may on first impressions seem a little underwhelming, but on closer inspection, that ‘basic’ reel engine not only delivers wins from left to right but from right to left too! And there are three progressive jackpots waiting to leap into player bankrolls when they least expect it!
Clover Rollover 2 Slot Bets and Pays
Bets can be adjusted, so too can bets per win line. There are five possible win lines to benefit from – in both directions, and while the potential to decrease the number of win lines is there, we recommend having all five in play per spin as reducing the number of win lines will inevitably reduce your chances of winning. Minimum bets are 10p per win line – 50p and increase in the following increments: 20p (£1 bet), 30p (£1.50p bet), 50p (£2.50p bet), 75p (£3.75p bet), £1 (£5 bet) all the way up to the maximum of £10 – which is a total of a £50 bet.
There are a total of nine symbols on the 5×3 reel engine; high paying are the four-leaf clovers, pots of gold and Celtic cross, medium value symbols are the Irish red-haired woman, and the leprechaun and low paying are the Guinness and card values of A, K and Q.
Clover Rollover 2 Slot Features
Clover Rollover 2 features base game wins and nothing else, meaning you will only be able to land wins through this simple mechanic. While it may seem a little disappointing, statistically speaking, you’ve more chance of a win on this slot than many others – what with it boasting a win both ways reel engine! Also, what you may not know is this title features Eyecon’s three-tiered jackpot system which build up value as the game is played and drop at various frequencies. This system features a Mega, Maxi and Mini jackpot and any spin of any value can trigger any of the three, all of which must drop by the time they reach a specific amount.

The Control Panel
Like most Eyecon powered slots, Clover Rollover 2 is designed in mobile format with an uncluttered display. As ever, the control panel is small and positioned to the lower of the screen so as not to distract the player from their main objectives – spin and win. A trio of buttons are housed directly beneath the reels on desktop, autoplay, spin and stake options. On mobile, these options will still be there, but depending on how you rotate to play, they may very well be positioned in other places.
A single black panel will highlight your bankroll, wins and total bet, allowing you to keep track of your spending and winnings. The menu provides details on the rules, pay outs, bet settings, autoplay options and sounds. The graphics are animated, and the sounds are in-keeping with the theme, but the music can get a little repetitive, so that mute button will certainly come in handy! Rules and pay outs deliver a run-down of all the possible symbol combinations as well as their pays and how to win. However self-explanatory this slot machine may be, it’s always a good idea to familiarise yourself with how to win before playing.
What’s the Verdict?
If you’re a fan of Irish-themed slots and believe in the luck of the Irish, then this is the perfect slot for you! The symbols dance upon the reels and a calming soundtrack aims to transport you to a fairy-tale kingdom far from your own, however, the lack of bonus features will soon bring you back down to earth with a bump! Having to rely on base game wins only is a little disappointing and those three jackpots like to tease – but how do you win them? Nobody knows until it actually happens, so pay attention when playing! Wins are frequently flowing, albeit small in value, but the biggest surprise of all is you don’t need to bet big to win big with this Eyecon/Playtech release.
Here’s what James Chambers, Slots Manager at Playtech had to say on its release back in September 2020: “With the original Clover Rollover slot being one of the most popular across the Playtech Bingo network, we are extremely excited to see the launch of Clover Rollover 2.
It was very important to us that the essence of the original game continued through to the sequel, and by introducing Eyecon’s jackpot mechanics we have been able to deliver a fresh and engaging experience to our players. Additionally, Eyecon has done a fantastic job in overhauling the graphics within the game introducing some impressive animations and giving a new look to an old favourite.”
