Finn and the Swirly Spin Slot Review
NetEnt have been pumping out some tremendous slots over the past couple of years and, if I am completely honest with you, Finn & The Swirly Spin is probably one of the best that they have produced. Well, from an original IP point of view, at least. Shall we take a look at what it brings to the table?
Finn & The Swirly Spin was launched in November 2017. This makes it one of the newer slots from NetEnt at the time of writing. There are 5 reels and 5 lines. The minimum bet per spin is 10. The maximum is £100.
This slot is actually a big departure from the type of stuff that NetEnt has produced recently. In recent years, NetEnt have been focused on producing branded slots and the like.
Sure, branded slots are great and all, but sometimes you need something from different creative minds, and Finn provides that. The game boasts a ton of colour, and the cartoon-style characters are a joy to look at.
While experienced players are going to get something from Finn & The Swirly Spin, a lot of what goes on here is going to be understood by beginners. To play the game, it is very much a case of hitting the spin button and hoping for the best.
The wins seem to come in nice and fast, but more on that in a short while! For now, as long as you know how to set your bet level on a slot, you should be ‘good to go’.
Finn & The Swirly Spin is built around those avalanche wins. For those who are unaware, avalanche means that if you form a winning combination, the symbols that formed that winning combination disappear. New ones then fall into their place.
This means that you could potentially get multiple wins on a single spin. There are also four random features which could occur at any time:
- Starfall Wilds: at least 2 wilds are added to the reels. They keep being added until you get a win.
- Dragon destroy: a random number of symbols on the reels are destroyed.
- Irish Luck: you are guaranteed a win.
- Magic Transform: all low paying symbols are transformed into high paying symbols.
- If this were not enough, there are also four different ‘free spins’ modes. Each of these features has one of the random features attached to it. You will need to collect a certain number of keys. So:
- The Star Bar: 7 free spins, 1 key, Starfall wilds on each free spin.
- Lava Lair: 3 free spins, Dragon destroy, 4 keys.
- Lucky mug: 4 free spins, Irish Luck, 9 keys
- Golden pot: 2 free spins, magic transform, 14 keys.
Most of your wins are going to come from the free spins mode, which is nice. It probably does not trigger as much as one would hope, but it is good enough as a feature nonetheless.
The house edge for Finn & The Swirly Spin is 3.39%. This is a medium volatility slot. As with any medium volatility slot, it is up to you to determine how you wish to bet. Generally, I love to bet down the lower end. If I start to see a few big wins coming my way, then I crank up the bet. This is a great way for me to get a feel for the slot without spending too much cash on it. After all, medium volatility slots can be a little on the unpredictable side of things.
If you want to play a slot which is original, then check out Finn and the Swirly Spin. It is probably not the greatest slot that has ever been conceived, but it is fun to play. I don’t think NetEnt have really created a terrible slot.
Couple this with the fact that it works amazingly well on mobile devices and you have more free spins than you can shake a stick at, this is a slot which should be appreciated by almost everybody.
