Clover Casino Review
We felt a little bit like we were transported; firstly, to a time before websites were properly designed and developed and, secondly, to Ireland with all its stereotypical green, gold and leprechauns running about. Even though the site in general is a bit odd, we still enjoyed the game play and would visit the platform again.
Top o’ the mornin’ to ye! Welcome to a jolly, Irish themed online casino site that ironically enough has a large part of its players in the UK. In this Clover Casino review we see if we can find any pots of gold on this online casino. In this casino review, we investigate whether luck is really reserved for the Irish and take a closer look at the promotions and bonuses that lurk at the end of these online casino rainbows.

Clover Casino Bonuses and Promotions
At Clover Casino, it looks like we found a pot of gold, or rather a pot of free spins. New players who sign up on Clover Casino only need to verify themselves via SMS to get 10 bonus free spins. This offer is no minimum deposit bonus, requires no Clover Casino registration code and no Clover Casino bonus codes. All that is required to get the bonus free spins is to verify via SMS and take the welcome bonus straight to Finn and the Swirly Spin. Before players can even think of winning some cash, they need to remember that this bonus offer and free spins come with wagering requirements of x60. However, this really isn’t much considering the free spins are free.
The other welcome offer is a little bit hidden at the bottom of the welcome page and the details surrounding the bonus is quite vague. It states that players could get up to £400 as a casino welcome bonus, spread out across the first three deposits. However, it doesn’t state how, which is a less than ideal strategy for online casinos who wants new players to play their slots and slot games. The same x60 wagering requirements and T’s & C’s apply. Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be any other bonuses offered on Clover Casino.

How to Register a Casino Account at Clover Casino?
Registering an account at Clover Casino is quick and easy and not much different from any other Nektan casino. When the account is registered though, the welcome bonus of 10 free spins is up for grabs and players can then use their free spins to play for some lucky wins.
Clover Casino is owned and operated by a well-known name in the industry; Nektan. For those of us who have been around the casino block and play their slots and casino games, are well acquainted with Nektan’s work. Nektan is licensed in Gibraltar under the Gibraltar Gambling Commission and in the UK under the UK Gambling Commission.
The Casino Design
The entire casino site follows the theme “Clover Casino” to the tee. The Irish-themed games are promoted like there is no tomorrow and the colour scheme is a stereotypical green and gold.
Even though Clover Casino is run by Nektan, it doesn’t share the design pattern of its sister sites. With that being said, it wouldn’t be the worst decision for Clover Casino to actually do that since this design and layout is a bit odd. What strikes us when we first get on to the welcome/landing page is that the site isn’t very easy to navigate. Either Nektan decided that this particular casino would try out a new look or someone was left unchecked with the design tools.
The navigation bar to the left is giving us options to go to the casino games, promotions, the top 10 slots and Clover Casino’s blog. What puts us off a little bit is that the remaining 7 menu items are merely specific slots games. This is one of the things we felt was a bit odd.
Another odd feature is that every slot game has its own personal, detailed information page with a dedicated YouTube video. This isn’t a bad feature in any way, just unusual and might even be a good addition for players who are new to the game or online gaming in general. The information on the games pages are very comprehensive and is great for new players who would like to know more about the slot games, as well as the old players who might need or want a bit of a refresher.
Casino Games Available
Players can find all promoted slots and slot games prominently displayed in the navigation bar on the left side of a player’s screen. These include Rainbow Riches, Fluffy Favourites, Shamrockers Slot, Finn and the Swirly Spin, Starburst Slot and the Cleopatra Slot Game.
The less important slots can be found under casino games, which Clover Casino decided did not need any filter whatsoever. We say that even though there is an option to put the entre games catalogue in alphabetical order. Why we don’t regard that as a proper filter is because whenever we press it, it makes all the games disappear and prompts “[a-z-listing post-type=”post” grouping=”1″]”. This might be a piece of genius coding, but doesn’t really help us at all. The search function is also casino (crap)s, since we had to load the entire library in several rounds to be able to make a search of all the games.
What we found in this section was a big slots and slot games library with some table games like Roulette and Poker, seemingly thrown in at random places. Here players find games like Lucky Falls, Orient Express, Shaman’s Dream and European Roulette. Overall players will find enough slots that they can spin for a win and casino games to keep them busy for hours.
Clover Casino Live Casino
Clover Casino does not offer any live casino with live dealer games. We would have liked to see some live dealer games at Clover Casino, but that would inevitably mean a long and hard search through the gaming library without its filtering option and we are just not ready to undertake such an online casino venture in anyway.
At the bottom of the info page of every slots and table games, Clover Casino has decided to prominently display its software developers. If any players decides that they would like to know which provider is responsible for their new favourite game, Clover Casino is happy to divulge that game provider info.
Looking into a few of them, we find very prominent online casino game developers such as Big Time Gaming, Microgaming, NetEnt, Foxium, Nextgen Gaming, Nektan, Blueprint Gaming, IGT, NYX, Konami, Realistic, ELK Studios WMS and Eyecon.
Loyalty Program / VIP
Like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, we have a hard time finding details regarding a loyalty program. Sometimes when this happens it’s often the case that the casino if promotes their loyalty program to players via email and not the casino site. But we still feel like most players would still like to know what a loyalty program and its bonuses and rewards entails before deciding on a platform to play on.
Deposit and Withdrawals Options
According to the site, Clover Casino will accept MasterCard, Visa, Maestro, Paysafecard, PayPal and Mobile pay as payment options. Straight-up leprechaun gold will not do here, unfortunately. We couldn’t find the minimum deposit requirements, but an educated guess will be that the online casino usual £10 cash applies as is the case with most Nektan game sites. When the slots spin and are handing out wins, players will probably want to make a winnings withdrawal. This can be made through all methods except the Mobile pay. As far as we can see there are no fees when making a withdrawal or a deposit, which is pretty standard with online casinos nowadays.
Clover Casino Mobile Casino
As is expected of a Nektan casino, Clover Casino is 100% mobile compatible and runs smoothly on all mobile devices. We find nothing wrong with how it functions when we play the slots and table games, and the navigation holds up nicely to the desktop version. In this casino review, we find that Clover Casino would hold up better against other online casinos if the website was easier to navigate around on in general, but this doesn’t have a lot to do with the mobile casino version itself.
For the players who’s not having the luck of the Irish on the platform for whatsoever reason, Clover Casino has ensured that they can reach out to their customer support at the bottom of every page of the casino site. Players have the option of either contacting customer support via email or telephone. Unfortunately, the telephone support is only available for those in the UK, making the actual Irish players (luck or no luck) miss out on that method of direct contact.
Security to Protect Players
Clover Casino is regulated by both the UK Gambling Commission and the Alderney Gambling Control Commission. This is enough for most players to feel secure at the online casino, but others may need a little more assurance. Clover Casino has a badge from Godaddy that is supposed to be linked to a page where visitors can see their verification. Whilst conducting this review, we found that there is no link whatsoever to this verification, making us wonder why that would be the case. Luckily, the site also sports a SQS verification badge, which tells us that the software and games on the site is tested and audited by an independent third party and should be safe to play on. For players who are at risk of becoming addicted to gambling, Clover Casino offers a variety of links to various responsible gambling and gambling awareness organisations.
Our Expert Conclusion
In this online casino review, we went through what makes Clover Casino lucky and where the platform is simply pushing their luck. The pot of gold in the end of this online casino rainbow is the no deposit welcome bonus. This is something that is really rare, much appreciated and easily gets new players to sign up. Once new players have created an account and started playing for free, it’s easy to continue with a first deposit. Compared to other casinos, Clover Casino seems like the place to be when it comes to striking it lucky. And players could have a really great time, as long as they don’t mind the unorganized games.
