Finn and the Swirly Spin Slot

Finn and the Swirly Spin is 5 reels and 10 pay-lines video slot powered by Net Entertainment software. This amazing slot will take you on a magic adventure to a leprechaun happy land. The reels have not so common setup, and they are set on a stone background. The symbols move in a maze and the entire picture is completed with amazing landscape of green lands and rainbows, with a leprechaun sitting on the left hand side from the reels playing. Give this slot a spin here for free or visit any of the NetEnt Casinos if you wish to play for real money.

Before you go on a ride over the rainbow, you need to set your bets. Coin denominations go from 0.01 to 2, and can be set by clicking "Coin Value +/-" section. With "Level +/-" you can set the number of coins per line. By clicking on "Max Bet" you will set the maximum bet available. "Spin" will set the reels in motion, whereas "Autoplay" will turn the reels automatically for a chosen number of times without interruption.

Cute little Star symbol is the Wild, and it can substitute for all symbols in the game except for the Free Spins Key. Wins with Wild symbols can intersect or overlap on the same row or column. After wins get evaluated the symbol will explode and disappear. There are different types of wins: wins with a Wild and wins without a Wild. Each win will trigger 1 of 2 things depending on the win type. Wins with Wild will explode destroying symbols vertically and horizontally adjacent to it, and wins without Wild will make place for a new Wild to be created in a place of the exploded once.

Golden W Coin is the Sticky Wild and it can appear only during Lava Lair Free Spin feature. This symbol cannot be destroyed and it will not destroy symbols around it the way the Star Wild does.

In the lower left corner of the reels you will see a key in an ice cube. The key will start moving towards the center with each win and the remaining symbols will avalanche. The Free Spins Key symbol cannot disappear during the main game. When you get it to the center position when there are no more winning combos, you will trigger Free Spins feature. 

Total number of keys displayed in the key meter does not reduce when a Free Spins game is selected. Initially only one game is available to choose, however there is more to get unlocked after a certain number of round have been played. Additional Free Spins features unlock in the following order: Star Bar, Lava Lair, Lucky Mug and Golden Pot.

Game Play: 

Coin Value +/-: Set the coin denominations. 
Bet Max: Set the highest bet possible. 
Level +/-: Set the number of coins per line. 
Spin: Start the game. 
Auto Play: Turn the reels without interruption for a certain number of times.

Latest releases of Netent is very bad. Low table pay-outs but more importantly it's very difficult to hit x500 your bet on the newer games since the pay tables are low as well as the game play is not the same like it used to be. Make no mistake Finn and the swirly spin is no different as well as you can't easily win x500 your stake however this slot looks very interesting and entertaining.

Similar to Emerald isle in terms of the colourfulness as well as the colours being used Finn sitting there on the ground blowing his whistle while you can place bets of minimum $0.10 but can be entertained for hours with a small balance. This game boast random features and 4 different free spins features. The random features can be triggered during any normal spin and activated 1 single round of the 4 free spins feature this game has.

The free spins feature is activated when the key on the beginning of the grid reached the centre of the grid. You can choose from 4 different features which include the following:

Starfall Wilds – wilds are added to the reels until a win occurs.
Dragon Destroy – symbols are destroyed in a way which guarantees a win.
Irish Luck – certain symbols are transformed to provide a guaranteed win.
Magic Transform – all hearts and spades are transformed into higher value symbols.

I have played this game since release days and always select the Star Wilds or Dragon Destroy as those are the unlocking levels are reached. You need to reach the feature a certain amount of times which then unlocks the other features on the slot. I am hoping to get the Magic transform feature very soon.

I managed to win x100 my bet once, but mostly its between 30 – 70 x my stake during the features. I would consider this slot as good for wagering purposed and would rate it a 7 out of 10.

I have been hating almost all of NetEnt's new games, including a number of their oldie games too, all because of being 'upgraded' or for having ridiculously low paytables, resulting in ridiculously poor gameplay. Then Finn And The Swirly spin came along. My first impression? "Oh god, yet another one!" Well, to my surprise, and well beyond my expectations, the game played very well for me! I first played this game with some free spins from a casino, then more plays with more free spins, and each time, I was quite delighted with the game. Why? Well, the reasons have nothing to do with its incredibly low paytable, but with the game's uniqueness in the swirling spins!

NetEnt should be proud of this new 'invention' - it's a new way to play slot games! Instead of the usual up-down spinning of the reels, or the dropping down of icon blocks, the symbols now shoots up from one corner and swirl in a squarish circle, ending in the center, and forming a 5x5 grid formation. Honestly speaking, I am not fond of any such grid formation, because there are too many symbols on the play screen which makes it look cluttered, but somehow, this swirling effect did not give me the cluttered effect. Don't ask me why, but that's the way it is!

Whenever 3 or more same symbols land in line, either horizontally or vertically, they would explode, leaving behind a bright Yellow Star Wild symbol. However, same symbols that explode with this Star Wild does not create another Star Wild, but that exploding Star Wild would explode the adjacent symbols around it. Very interesting! These maneuvers keep the other symbols moving in a swirl, until a special 'Key' symbol gets into the keyhole at the center, awarding a Free Spins game. This game doesn't rely on Scatters at all, but depends solely on that special key to get to the center of the swirl. If no movement of the symbols is encountered, a new spin ensues.

There are 4 modes of Free Spins games available, but each mode can only be played upon collecting the required number of that special key, indicated by a meter on the right hand side. The first 3 keys award the Starblast mode, whereby each spin of the 7 free spins would get 2 up to 5 Star Wilds being thrown into the swirl to create wins. Getting 4 keys awards the Lava Lair mode, with 3 free spins, but with an indestructible Wild Coin. The 9th key awards the Irish Luck mode, with 4 free spins, and with one random row of 5 same symbols. Finally, the 16th key awards the Jackpot mode, with only 2 free spins, and with 2 random symbols being transformed into another symbol. Amongst these 4 modes, the Jackpot mode tends to pay the lowest most of the time, except when you get most of the symbols, if not all, transforming into the Red Ruby symbol, for a nice big win. My favourite? The Lava Lair 3 free spins with the indestructible Wild Coin.


What I dislike most about this Finn game is not really confined to NetEnt games only, but seems to be with any other new games as well. The game plays much better in the earlier stages than in the later stages! I have already reached the 62 keys level now, have played all the 4 modes of Free Spins, and have seen my credit balance going up and down regularly too. Playing with the minimum 0.10 bets would give the best play! Playing with much bigger bets would bring out the Blackhole in the game and devour your credits like hhell! You'd get lots of empty spins and lots of useless small wins!

Now here's probably the worse of the lot. My best win from all those 62 Free Spins games was only 158x my bet amount, with 114x the second best. All the other wins were either about 25x or about 50x! Nonetheless, I love playing this game, purely for its uniqueness and for fun sake, but where wins are concerned, it's a damn blardy poor paymaster!

NetEnt has been naughty in the last couple of years, games rating were dropped significant in my opinion because its poor payout. Apparently this is something that will happen to all games providers in the near future. It is similar to fishing. They are the fishermen and we are the fishes and their games are the bait, with other words, some how they will get us the take the bait hehehe.

Games providers are always trying to beat their rivals to be the number one, Microgaming was on top when online gambling was introduced to the world wide web but with years and because the popularity of online gambling, a new gaming provider must soon arrive and they did, NextGen (Nyx), Playtech, NetEnt, BetSoft. Today the amount of games providers has multiplied, it is hard to choose which you'd play with. Well, there's one word that increase chance of winning : Originality.

Finn and the swirly spin is a new gem of NetEnt. Some of you would recognize the game play, yes it is similar to Zuma, not the video slot but the original game of shooting marbles to a swirl of other coloured marbles. I think it's a very interesting concept and I must admit that I was intrigued by this game and couldn't help but to give it a 'swirl' hehehe.
My first time playing this game was with the free spins I got from a casino. Bad session, no win at all. Then I tried it with deposit money and I must say I had more luck this time, I played about 2 and a half hours with a small deposit. I collected 14 keys, you'll get 1 key each time the free spin feature is triggered. I do like the multiple stages bonus feature which you can buy with the keys you've collected. I've completed the whole bonus stages and the last one is kinda disappointing, it requires 16 keys to unlock it but you'll only get 2 free spins.
Highest win is the red ruby of 500 credits and this goes for 5 stars (wild) too, Another disappointment to me. It is a fun game but same payouts as other predecessor games.
