As well as the regular symbols, there are two special symbols in Wild Clover. The wild symbol appears on reels two, three and four and can stand in for any other symbol in play except for the scatter symbol, which is useful as it means you can match lots more matches.

The symbols can be on any reel and in any position - they don't have to be consecutive or from left to right.
