Finn and the Swirly Spin is the latest slot game release by NetEnt.
This newt game uses a unique way to play. The screen fills up with a total of 25 symbols in a spiral. You have a winning combination when three or more of the same symbols appear on a horizontal or vertical line. Winning symbols will be removed from play and new symbols will spiral onto the screen.
The bottom left most symbol, the end of the spiral, will always feature a key. This key will spin further into the middle, each time a win occurs. When the key reaches the middle of the spiral the free spins feature is triggered, which I will explain later.
After you have received a win with or without a wild symbol, two things can happen.
Wins that contain a wild symbol will explode, including the symbol horizontally and vertically adjacent to the wild symbol.
If a win dos not include a wild symbol one of the exploded symbols will be turned into a wild symbol.
- Starfall Wilds – 2 or more random wild symbols will be placed on the screen. If wilds are placed and no wins occur, a new wild will be added until you have a winning combination.
- Dragon Destroy – Only occurs when there is no win. It will destroy a random number of symbols and new symbols will spiral in, a win is guaranteed.
- Irish Luck – Only occurs when there is no win. A random row or column will transform into 5 of the same symbols, guaranteeing a win.
- Magic Transform – All spade and heart symbols will transform into a higher paying symbol. The spade and heart symbol may each transform into a different symbol.
Free spins features
Players can choose between 4 different free spins features, depending on how many times you have initiated the free spins feature.
- Star Bar – costs 1 key – 7 free spins with the Starfall Wilds feature.
- Lava Lair – costs 4 keys – 3 free spins with the Dragon Destroy feature – during these free spins a sticky wild symbol is placed instead of the key symbol.
- Lucky Mug – costs 9 keys – 4 free spins with the Irish Luck feature.
- Golden Pot – costs 16 keys – 2 free spins with the Magic Transform feature.
Finn and the Swirly Spin is a very happy, upbeat slot game with tons of features. The game is a bit different from normal slot games, but when playing it all is very simple and easy to understand.
I think it’s a nice new game. Not my personal favorite, I am not a big fan of the way the game plays with the spiral and all. But I am sure many players will enjoy it a lot. And it is certainly different.
