If you follow NetEnt’s roadmaps, you will be aware that the recent release of Finn and the Swirly Spin was the last scheduled release of 2017.
Historically, NetEnt have had a few surprises at the end of the year, including a Christmas slot, but if this does turn out to be the finale to the year, it’s quite a way to bow out!
About the slot
Finn and the Swirly Spin is an exceptional looking slot. The design is beautiful, with various gems, and countryside themed symbols appearing in front of a backdrop of the Irish countryside, and a leprechaun standing to the side of the reels.
However, it isn’t only the artwork that stands out, with the 5x5 grid having symbols that appear in a swirl, making it feel different to anything we’ve seen previously.
It is a testament to the talent of NetEnt’s designers that this amazing slot was ready to go just days after the equally incredible, but very different Planet of the Apes slot.
There are four features that trigger randomly in the base game, Starfall Wilds will add up to five wilds to the reels, while Dragon Destroy takes out a certain number of symbols, leading to a cascading reels feature, which also activates if a wild is part of a winning combination.
Irish Luck offers a guaranteed win, while Magic Transform turns spades and hearts into high value symbols.
If you manage to get between one and sixteen keys to the middle of the reels, and you’ll trigger one of four features that, offering extra wilds, extra cascading reels, a guaranteed win, and symbols transforming into higher values respectively. Essentially, free spins versions of the base game features.
This is a brilliant slot from NetEnt, and one that has already received rave reviews from players and critics alike.
