Brace yourself for a fun-filled trip to the Emerald Isle, where Finn and the Swirly Spin slot are waiting to whisk you away to exciting, new heights. The slot game is made by none other than NetEnt – a globally-renowned software company which has gifted us a vast array of fantastic online slots over the years, including Twin Spin Deluxe and Gonzo’s Quest.
The Finn and the Swirly Spin slot is like nothing you’ve ever seen before. Although it officially uses five reels, the shape of the playing area is square, with one row running around the outside towards the centre, a little like a maze. One symbol in particular – the key – always travels round clockwise around the reels with every spin, and each time one reaches the middle, it’s added to a key meter. By collecting keys, you can pick one of four Free Spins Bonuses each time the feature is triggered. Also, the game uses wild symbols that can destroy other symbols to let the Avalanche Feature add new ones to the reels. Wild symbols can also be generated with winning combinations, plus there are four random features that Finn can award you as you play!
The slot game is named after both the main character, Finn the Leprechaun, and the Swirly Spin game mechanic. The reel set sits in the centre of the screen, and it can display lots of luck-themed symbols such as four-leaf clovers, brass horseshoes, acorns, rubies, hearts, spades, stars, and keys.
The animated graphics make for a wonderfully uplifting playing experience. For example, Finn stands on the left purposely playing his tin-whistle while gazing up at the reels. And, in the background, there are trees, magic toadstools, mountains, clouds, blue skies, and a massive rainbow.
Finn and the Swirly Spin offers you better chances of winning via the Star wild symbol, which can replace all symbols except the Key. Wins containing wilds cause an “Avalanche” effect which destroys adjacent symbols and introduces new ones. Wins without wild symbols cause a new wild to be created.
The slot does not use a scatter symbol, but you do have the key symbol that can be used to unlock the Free Spins Bonus every time it reaches the centre of the reels.
The Finn and the Swirly Spin slot can award four random features at any point in the game (N.B., Irish Luck Magic Transform, Starfall Wilds, and Dragon Destroy). They can add extra wilds to random positions on the reels to create guaranteed wins, add a matching line of symbols to the reels to award an instant prize, destroy random symbols to activate the Avalanche Feature and create a winning combo, and transform the playing card suit symbols into more valuable symbols. When the Key symbol reaches the centre spot on the reels, it initiates the Free Spins Bonus. You can choose from Star Bar Free Spins at the cost of one key, Lava Lair at the cost of four keys, Lucky Mug at the cost of nine keys or Golden Pot at the cost of sixteen keys.
