He’s the friendliest Leprechaun and he is already bringing joy to the NetEnt online Casinos since its introduction in 2017! He’s not a new stranger in town as many will know the ginger fellow in his green suit from the Finn and the Swirly Spin™ slot. Finn again found his way to the NetEnt Casinos at the end of 2019, this time visiting his favourite tavern in Finn’s Golden Tavern™ slot!
Where else do you get the opportunity to visit the favourite bar of the most cheerful Leprechaun you’ll ever meet! Finn’s already waiting for you at his brand-new tavern where your beer tastes better than ever before! Finn still loves beer, he still talks funny, and he still has a glint in his eye and a thirst for gold and therefore, Finn brought along a map, a treasure map, to be precise. That’s why he’s left the rolling hills of Ireland to seek his fortune in far-away lands, and he’s asking for you to join him on his adventure.
In his previous adventure, Finn was looking for a pot of gold but in the Finn’s Golden Tavern™ slot, you and Finn get your compass ready in a search for bigger wealth. Finn might be able to pass on some of his Irish Luck while you’ll be enjoying the same brilliant gameplay as you’ve seen in the Finn and the Swirly Spin™ slot. This means you’ll be enjoying the same swirly slot mechanic in which symbols follow a spiral pattern that twists around the screen rather than landing in the standard way.
Leprechauns are known to do things in unusual and unexpected ways, and Finn is no exception! That’s why Finn and the Swirly Spin™ slot proved to be successful, and the same goes for its successor, the Finn’s Golden Tavern™ slot which will see the return of the unique spiral spin mechanic extended with a Wild Symbol, a Free Spins Chest, Free Spins with a Multiplier Meter and Coin Bonus, as well as 2 different Random Features.
What to expect from the Spiral Spin mechanic
While you usually find at least 5 reels in a modern video slot with usually 3 or 4 rows, this wasn’t the case in Finn’s first video slot, and neither in the Finn’s Golden Tavern™ slot. Instead, you’ll be enjoying a Spiral Spin mechanic for a totally different slot experience.
The Finn’s Golden Tavern™ slot is bringing a fun game in which Avalanches and random features are the base of the game, already perfect for players looking for entertainment. Additionally, the increasing Multiplier during the Free Spins feature will attract all kind of players as this feature has a big win potential as there’s no maximum Multiplier available!
For players who experienced and enjoyed the first game, Finn’s new adventure will be even more attractive as there will be an even higher payout potential. Irish flutes and folk music are proof that although Finn is far from home, he still carries Ireland with him… deep in his heart. Of course, he carries a big jug of strong ale too! You’re invited to join him so let him buy you a round while he’s showing you his favourite tavern.
You’ll be focused on the thrilling Chest symbol that’ll get into the picture at the very end of the spiral in order to reach the central position on the reels to trigger Free Spins with increasing Multiplier. Meanwhile, you’ll constantly experience a win potential Avalanches and Wilds during the main game!
The first thing I noticed different from any other video slot, including Finn and the Swirly Spin™, is the high maximum bet. The maximum bet in the latter was 200.00, but the Finn’s Golden Tavern™ slot is offering a maximum bet of 500.00! Obviously, players who are not attracted to such high bets will have plenty of options with a minimum bet of 0.10 and nine different coin values to choose from.
Finn and the Golden Tavern™ slot features
Thanks to the 25 spaces, there are 25 separate symbols available which are independently moving in a spiral, a slot mechanic that has proved to be a hit with players from around the globe. 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 Coin and Chest symbols.
Finn’s Golden Tavern™ is all about getting the Chest symbol to the heart of the game. It’s the spiral pattern that’s responsible for the Chest symbol to find the heart and while you’re getting there, the tavern is coming alive! Finn’s Golden Tavern is becoming truly alive when the Free Spins Chest finds the heart of the game, entering the Free Spins feature. But before that’ll be the case, you’ll have a good time on the “reels” thanks to the coins and Wilds that have an important role to play.
Initially, no Wilds appear, but as soon as a winning combination is made, a Wild can appear on the reels which will help to keep the spiral moving forward. Each coin symbol on the reels has a value assigned and 3 or more coins in a row will pay out the sum of all the coin values in the match.
If the Free Spins chest symbol is in the immediate loop of symbols around the central position, the Random Coin feature that turns low win symbols into coin symbols can be randomly activated.
During the main game, when a no-win spin occurs, the Fist Slam feature can be randomly activated during which a coin symbol is moved for a win to be generated.
Finn’s Free Spins
This time, it’s the Free Spins Chest that is looking to find the heart of the game. With the Free Chest getting closer to the heart, you’ll notice the Golden Tavern slowly coming alive, with the atmosphere being at its best as soon as the Chest hits the heart and 5 Free Spins are activated. During Free Spins, the Multiplier at the bottom climbs up with x1 after five Wild Stars have been collected. With no maximum Multiplier available, the Multiplier Meter can keep climbing up. For the Multiplier having a chance to climb up high, the Chest needs to keep moving forward during each spin and best is for it to hit the heart of the game again.
During Free Spins, if the Free Spins Chest symbol ends up in the central position again, the Coin Bonus feature will be activated. This feature places out a number of Coin symbols onto the reels with random values assigned to them.
