    An Irish Twist

    Most of us can attest to the fact that the repetitive Irish theme featured in most video slot games are becoming rather monotonous and boring. However, with Finn and the Swirly Spin, we must admit that the new super exciting design and gameplay that Finn and the Swirly Spin brings to the table is something.

    Boasting of crisp cartoonish animations and set against a background of rolling green hills, Finn the leprechaun is the main character and is on standby to take you on a journey to the renowned Emerald Isle. On your way there, you’ll be entertained with the traditional Irish music, which will be playing in the background and mystical swirling reels that add some jest to the game.

    Symbols that you are bound to come across on the reels include acorns, spades, horseshoes, hearts and lucky four leaf clovers. However, your eyes should be peeled and glued to the ruby symbol, which awards you with a 50× multiplier on your stake for five on a payline.

    Bonus Features - Finn and the Swirly Spin Slot Machine

    Finn and the Swirly Spin slot is an exceptional video slot game and it’s the first in the Cluster Pay category that has abandoned the use of normal reels. Instead, NetEnt decided to use 25 unique symbols that appear independently from each other. You can bet starting from a minimum of 10 cents up to a maximum of $200 per spin.

    Every time you click on the spin button, a swirling pattern moves the game’s symbols on a 5× grid towards the keyhole. Your main aim is to get the Key symbol at the bottom left of the screen to the keyhole and unlock the gate to the magical free spins bonus games, which offers you multiple wins.

    Should you manage to match at least 3 symbols in a row – vertically or horizontally –you’ll receive a coin win, making the matched symbols to disappear and give way to the other symbols to swirl in a clockwise direction towards the keyhole and to fill the empty spaces with newer symbols.

    To help you get to the magic free spins world, NetEnt have cleverly included a star wild symbol which is generated with every winning combination you achieve. A win that’s been completed by a wild symbol won’t result into another wild, but instead, it will make the star to explode and destroy the symbols on the same row and column. This will not only give you the opportunity of winning big but also create more space on the reels to allow the Key symbol to swirl faster towards the keyhole.
