Finn and the Swirly Spin Slot Review & Game Bonus

If you fancy trying your hand at a NetEnt video slot that’s quite unlike anything else produced by the studio, there’s only one port of call this Christmas – their brand new Finn and the Swirly Spin slot game.

A Cluster Pays-style slot that takes place on a 5×5 grid, the Finn and the Swirly Spin slot machine differs from games like Aloha! and The Legend Of Shangri-La in that the symbols move along a spiral track with every winning combination that is removed. Payouts are awarded for any three-of-a-kind or better on a horizontal or vertical line, while star substitute wilds are also added to the spiral when a combination is cleared.

Playable from as little as £0.10 per game, Finn and the Swirly Spin can be enjoyed across all desktop, mobile and tablet devices and features the same array of Irish symbols that players will have come to expect. That being said, the visuals are fantastic and the animations used to denote winning combinations really do give the game a distinctly arcade feel that really helps it stand out in the crowd.

The Greatest Swindle

If the innovative gameplay mechanic and state-of-the-art visuals are Finn and the Swirly Spin’s good points, its bad ones definitely come from its free spins bonus features. The reason for this is not that they themselves are bad, it’s just that you’ll virtually never see them as triggering one is almost impossible.

At the start of every new game, a key symbol starts in the bottom left hand corner of the spiral and must successfully reach its centre for one of four free spins features to trigger. The more times players activate a feature, the more options they’ll have to choose from, with progressively more rewarding games coming into play for one, four, nine and sixteen triggers and remaining unlocked thereafter.

Bonus games include seven spins with two to five added star wilds, three spins with random symbols being destroyed by a fire-breathing dragon, four spins with a horizontal or vertical line of matching symbols added to the gameboard or two spins with all spade and heart symbols being transformed into a higher value icon. Additionally, all of these events can be randomly triggered in the base game.

Pot Luck?

We wanted to like the Finn and the Swirly Spin slot, we really did. The idea is great and the game looks fantastic, but the bonus concept just doesn’t work as by, the very nature of icons being added to the back of the spiral, you’ll end up with a jam of unmatched symbols at the front where you need them.
