Play Finn and the Swirly Spin At These Casinos
ABOUT THIS SLOT
Finn and the Swirly Spin is a classic Irish-themed slot, with lots of references to the iconic Emerald Isle, including the usual array of pots of gold, clovers, and of course Leprechauns. Finn is one of these, and the main protagonist in this game. He guides you through the action as you try to land clusters of 3 or more horizontally or vertically adjacent identical symbols. The backdrop to the game is a mystical pastoral landscape, filled with bright colors and generally cheerful sites. In short, this is an upbeat slot!
There are four base game features but the main objective is to unlock the key scatter in the center of the grid which will open up FOUR free spins rounds, each with a different set of reel enhancements. To achieve this you have the help of the cascading wins mechanic – after any winning spin, winning symbols are removed from the reels and replaced with new ones. This is a feature made famous in NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest game and repeated in many other grid slots since.
RTP, VARIANCE AND PAYOUTS
Finn and the Swirly Spin is a low variance game, a little like Aloha! Cluster Pays and Starburst. That means you can except low value, regular payouts, and it’s great for casual slots play with low stakes. The RTP is above average at 96.62% and the top payout is a modest 500x.
SYMBOLS AND PAYTABLE
The beautiful springtime Irish landscape provides a stunning backdrop to the reel action where you will find a mix of icons including Rubies, Acorns, Clovers, and Horseshoes. The rubies are top value at 50x.
Look out as well for The Golden Star which is the Wild that substitutes for all regular symbols to form wins and only appears as a result of a winning cluster on the reels, and the important Key icon which is the Scatter that triggers the Free Spins feature.
