NetEnt Set to Launch Finn and the Swirly Spin Slot
After Planet of the Apes using two play areas, NetEnt has come up with another innovative release in 2017. It is Finn and the Swirly Spin, the online video slot that draws inspiration from Irish tradition. This is not just another slot machine revolving around Irish luck, so stay with us to learn all about this ground-breaking game that will provide you with loads of entertainment and a chance of winning big.
The imagery of the game is stunning with 3D graphics and cartoon-like animations. A leprechaun called Finn sits on the left-hand side of the reels and plays his fife. The play area looks as if made of stone and it is set against a beautiful green valley with a tree, a white spotted toadstool and a rainbow. The game is home to six symbols represented as spades, hearts, clovers, horseshoes, hazelnuts and red gems.
You will be taken by surprise from the first glance realising that the slot does not feature a usual reel set. No reels, no rows, no paylines. Instead, the game uses unique mechanics with a spiral pattern starting at the bottom left corner and ending in the centre of the swirl. Practically, there is a 5×5 layout but it is delivered in a complete unique way. The symbols fill the swirl and whenever a winning combination is created, they explode to let new symbols come into their place thus providing you with additional chances of winning. To win a prize, players have to land at least 3 matching symbols on adjacent positions vertically or horizontally.
The game comes packed with 4 random bonus features which are triggered when all symbols stop moving. They are Starfall Wilds, placing at least 2 Wilds on random position on the grid until a win is hit, Dragon Destroy, which destroys a random number of symbols and activates another avalanche, Irish Luck, transforming a vertical or horizontal line into one symbol to deliver a win and Magic Transform, transforming all spade and heart symbols into high value symbols of a kind.
You will notice the frozen key symbol which is responsible for unlocking four free spins features. When the key makes it to the centre of the swirl during one spin, one of the features is triggered. However, each Free Spins feature requires a specific number of keys to be activated. The Star Bar feature is triggered when one key makes it to the centre of the swirl and you will get 7 free spins with the Starfall Wilds feature active. The Lava Lair feature requires 4 keys and if you manage to get them, you will win 3 free spins with the Dragon Destroy feature. If you collect 9 keys, the Lucky Mug feature is unlocked awarding 4 free spins with the Irish Luck feature and finally, the Golden Pot feature is unlocked by collecting 16 keys. Once you get them, you will be rewarded with 2 free spins with the Magic Transform feature.
The game comes with the RTP of 96.61% and the top fixed jackpot of 500 coins. A betting range spreads between $0.10 and $100 to please all kinds of players and the game is playable across both desktop and mobile devices. With its unique mechanics and plenty of bonus features, Finn and the Swirly Spin will provide you with a highly entertaining gaming experience, so give it a try as soon as it goes live. The game is due to launch on November 23.
