Finn and the Swirly Spin™ video slot now available at all NetEnt Casinos
For weeks, the Finn and the Swirly Spin™ video slot has been available exclusively at LeoVegas, but it is today that players at all NetEnt Casinos can enjoy of what I believe is one of the best video slots launched in 2017. It will be the last new video slot released by NetEnt this year and what a great game to end another great video slot year with. Read all about the Finn and the Swirly Spin™ video slot which is introducing the exciting new spin mechanic in which symbols do not land in the standard way but will follow a spiral pattern starting at the outside corner and ending in the center position.
I could give you another extended video slot review in which I explain the Wild symbol being responsible for extra winnings, the four Random features that can be activated at any time or write about the four different Free Spins features, but I ‘m not going to. Instead, I’ll try my best to explain the new and exciting Spiral Spin Mechanic that’s in the spotlight during the entire game. I will also explain why this new slot mechanic might be the reason why the Finn and the Swirly Spin™ video slot has the ability to become the best video slot released in 2017.
NetEnt’s continuous pursuit of innovation
It is exactly 4 years I ago I started writing about NetEnt and the NetEnt Games and at that time the company was far ahead of the competition. A lot has changed ever since and NetEnt now has to deal with increasing competition, all doing their very best to find their way in what can be called the fastest growing industry worldwide.
For a long time, NetEnt was the largest innovator in the industry and the competition could only see and watch how they took over the industry becoming the most popular game developer. Over the years, the experienced developers spread their wings finding their way to the competition. It involves a common process seen a lot in growing industries and it doesn’t have to be a bad thing.
Growing competition has a lot of advantages and in the case of the iGaming industry, it results in better games. NetEnt’s motto has been “Better Games” for many years, but now the company is truly challenged to release better games. As a result of the growing competition, you just can’t lose your focus and new and better products and games are a must to stay on top.
Luckily, NetEnt has all “ingredients” to stay the leading provider of premium gaming solutions in order to deliver their games to the world’s most successful online casino operators. The company’s talented people take pride in delivering thrilling games powered by NetEnt’s cutting-edge platform.
NetEnt has been a true pioneer every since the first online casinos came into the picture and I’m convinced the leading developer of online casino games will keep on driving the market with their premium games. The Finn and the Swirly Spin™ video slot is just another proof of that thanks to its innovative Spiral Spin Mechanic perfectly combined with an attractive design and exciting slot features.
Spiral Spin Mechanic, another great slot innovation
Until today, I’m impressed by video slot features invented by NetEnt such as the Avalanche™ feature. This slot feature was introduced 7 years ago used in the Gonzo’s Quest™ video slot. That a certain innovation, a great theme and fantastic animations can be the true success formula, Gonzo’s Quest™ proved as no other game as this game today is still as popular as it always has been.
This time the Finn and the Swirly Spin™ slot is hosting the innovation, the Spiral Spin Mechanic, in which symbols do not land in the standard way but will follow a spiral pattern starting at the outside corner and ending in the center position. In each of the 25 spaces, 25 separate symbols appear that are independent of those around it. Symbols involved in winning combinations will disappear and the remaining symbols will move to fill the empty spaces. Symbols will move forward following the spiral and among these symbols the Key symbol that appears in the beginning of the spiral on the first spin.
It’s this special spiral pattern that will be responsible for the Free Spins Key to find the heart of the game after which you’ll enter a floating world where 4 Irish bars are located. However, if no more winning combinations occur, the Free Spins Key will be sent back to the beginning of the spiral at the outer outside of the game which sort of feels like going to Jail in Monopoly: “Please don’t pass Start, you won’t receive any salary”, shame!
