Introducing the Spiral Spin Mechanic, Finn and the Swirly Spin Touch® is one of the most innovative video slots launched in 2017 by NetEnt.
Finn and the Swirly Spin Touch® is no standard game and I’m sure mobile players will appreciate the remarkable game play linked to this Irish-themed video slot.
You’ll be taken to the emerald isle where Finn, a magical leprechaun, awaits your arrival.
The video slot revolution continues with NetEnt’s Finn and the Swirly Spin Touch®. This new type of mobile slot offers a slot mechanism in which symbols follow an unusual path. The most important symbol will be the Free Spin Key, but no Irish game without the clover and a typical Irish background.
What is the Spiral Spin Mechanic?
Using this innovating slot mechanism, symbols do not land in the standard way but will follow a spiral pattern. The pattern starts at the outside corner and will follow a spiralling route to the centre of the video slot. Thanks to the spiral slot mechanic, players can enjoy an entirely different gameplay than usual.
The design of the game brings a new style to the NetEnt Casinos. The moving flora and fauna bring an extra dimension to the game, but it will be all about the key.
The most important symbol will be the Free Spin Key, on his way to the heart of the game. This process will really built up the excitement, knowing that a series of consecutive winning combinations bring the key to the heart. Unless no more winning combinations occur and the key will fall back to it’s start position at the bottom left place on the reels.
Finn and the Swirly Spin Touch® is the first game that offers this type of game play. While you wait for some Irish Luck to bring you the wealth you hope for, you also enjoy some typical Celtic sounds coming from Finn’s flute.
Finn and the Swirly Spin Touch® Free Spins
As mentioned before, it will be the Free Spins Key that’ll be in the spotlights while playing Finn and the Swirly Spin Touch®, but you’ll also enjoy a Wild Symbol, 4 different types of Free Spins, and a Random Feature with 4 variations.
Finn and the Swirly Spin Touch® has the potential to become one of the best NetEnt slots ever thanks to the Spiral Spin Mechanic and a great mix of video slot features.
It all starts with each of the 25 spaces covered by 25 separate symbols. Symbols involved in winning combinations will disappear and the remaining symbols will move forward in the spiral to fill the empty spaces.
Random features are always interesting, but in the end the main aim is to get the key to the heart of the game. It’s the spiral pattern and a consecutive series of winning combinations that will get the key to the heart where it will activate the Free Spins feature.
Entering the floating world, 4 Irish bars will show up and depending on the number keys collected, you can visit either Starbar, Lava Lair, Lucky Mug Bar or Golden Pot.
Every time the Free Spins Key symbol reaches the centre, the key meter in the bottom right corner of the game screen increases by 1. The Key Meter doesn’t reset every time the game closes. So you can continue to play with the total number of keys collected when you re-start Finn and the Swirly Spin Touch®.
Finn and the Swirly Spin™ slot features
The spiral spin mechanic brings a unique twist to the reels. It totally changes the way you experience a video slot. But no NetEnt slot without a great mix of slot features adding to the gaming experience.
Finn and the Swirly Spin Touch® consists of two type of wins: wins that have a Wild symbol and wins that do not have a Wild symbol. If wins indeed contain a Wild symbol it will explode destroying the symbols vertically and horizontally adjacent to it. Wins that don’t contain a Wild symbol will create one.
4 Random features
If a Wild and four different free spins features aren’t responsible for enough slot excitement already, you’ll also have a chance one of the random feature is activated. There will be four Random features: Starfall Wilds, Dragon Destroy, Irish Luck, and Magic Transform.
The Starfall Wilds feature will place 2 to 5 or more Wilds randomly on the reels. These Wilds may appear in a random pattern or in a line.
The Dragon Destroy feature can be activated only if there are no wins. The Dragon Destroy feature will destroy a random number of symbols which will then activate another avalanche.
Like this is the case with the Dragon Destroy feature, also the Irish Luck feature can be activated only when there is no win available. A horizontal or vertical line of one type of symbol is added to the reels giving a guaranteed win. Whether the line added is horizontal or vertical is chosen at random.
The Magic Transform feature will transform all the spade and heart symbols into another higher paying symbol. The symbol that is transformed into may be different for the spade and heart symbols. There are 16 (4×4) possible transformations as each spade and heart symbol has 4 potential outcomes of what it may transform into. All spade symbols will transform into its chosen symbol and all heart symbols will transform into its chosen symbol.
