Finn and the Swirly Spin Slot Review

Grasp some of the Irish luck in this mesmerizing slot by NetEnt. Meet Finn and let him entertain you as he plays his flute and makes amazing bonuses appear. Will you be lucky enough to get the maximum win? Spin to find out!

The game features some magical visuals, starting from the animated trees and clouds passing by in the background. A rainbow can be seen on the left side of the screen and right below you’ll find Finn himself creating some tunes with his flute. The logo of the game is located at the top left corner of the interface as the center part is occupied by the reels.

Moving on to the mechanics, Finn and the Swirly Spin isn’t your regular slot. The symbols appear on a 5×5 grid but they all work independently so wins can be formed both vertically and horizontally. The game utilizes the avalanche feature meaning that winning symbols disappear and the nearby ones fall in place.

If you find this game entertaining then we strongly recommend you check out the sequel of the franchise, also provided by NetEnt, which is none other than “Finn’s Golden Tavern”. For now, though, let’s see what the game has in store for you!

How to Play Finn and the Swirly Spin

The game has 5 rows and 5 reels but there aren’t paylines since any 3 or more horizontally or vertically connected pieces form a winning combination. The dedicated buttons found under the reel set can be used to enable the autoplay function, spin, and set the preferred bet size. More options are available through the in-game menu.

Bets start as low as $0.10 and go up to $200 per spin which combined with the game’s low volatility makes it a perfect option for those looking for a fun, action-packed, and potentially rewarding session. Finn and the Swirly Spin has an RTP of 96.62% and a maximum win of 500x your stake.

Symbols-wise, the game features 2 low paying and 4 high paying symbols. The first are represented by a wooden heart and a stone spade symbol while the latter come in the form of a 4-leaf clover, a horseshoe, an acorn, and a red diamond.

The slot’s special symbols are:

  • Wild – The slot’s wild is a star symbol. It substitutes for all symbols except for the free spins key symbol. Wins with wilds can intersect or overlap on the same row or column.
  • Free Spins Key – Represented by a key symbol encased in ice, this symbol will always be at the bottom left position at the beginning of each spin. The associated feature is triggered when the key reached the middle position via the avalanche mechanic.
  • Sticky Wild – Represented by a gold coin, this symbol only appears during Lava Lair Free Spins. It acts as a normal wild symbol but can’t be destroyed nor does it destroy the symbols when it participates in a winning combination.

Game Rules

Finn and the Swirly Spin Features

The game offers quite a collection of features so without further ado let’s jump right in.

Starfall Wilds

2 or more wilds are placed on the reels randomly. If the wilds are placed in a random pattern then the positions are chosen randomly and can’t be placed over the free spins key symbol. If no wins occur, then another wild will continue being added until there is a win.

If the wilds are placed in a line, each of the game’s ten lines is chosen randomly. The wilds appear adjacent to each other on the chosen line with their positions chosen from all combinations with adjacent wilds.

Starfall Wilds
Dragon Destroy

This can only be activated if there aren’t any wins. The dragon will destroy a random number of symbols, that way activating another avalanche. This occurs in a way that a win is guaranteed.

Dragon Destroy
Irish Luck

This can only be activated if there aren’t any wins. A horizontal or vertical line of a certain symbol type, except for a wild, is added to the reels providing a guaranteed win. The line can be randomly horizontal or vertical.

Irish Luck
Magic Transform

All heart and spade symbols are transformed into another high paying symbol. Spade and heart symbols may transform into symbols different from each other. Since there are 4 possible outcomes there are 16 potential transformations.

As this number increases the player will be able to unlock and potentially select alternative free spin modes. In order, these are the Star Bar, Lava Lair, Lucky Mug, and Golden Pot free spins.
