HOW TO PLAY FINN AND THE SWIRLY SPIN
Once you start the 2017 release, you will be taken directly to Ireland, on a beautiful countryside, where Finn the leprechaun is waiting for you, playing his pipe. He is sitting next to a big rock, on which the playing grid is set. Since we are talking about an Emerald Isle-themed video slot, then it is no wonder that NetEnt used some authentic symbols from this area, like Rubies, Golden Acorns, Lucky Horseshoes and four-leaf Clovers.
Also, four card suits are used for low-paying symbols. The Golden Star is used as the Wild and it will substitute for all regular symbols. Also, once a part of the winning combination, the Star will explode and destroy all surrounding symbols, horizontally and vertically. You will notice a keyhole in the middle of the playing grid. This is where you need to get the Key Scatter in order to trigger some of the Free Spins features.
There are plenty of innovations in the 2017 release, so it might take you a while to fully understand how the slot functions. Finn and the Swirly Spin features a standard 5×5 layout, but the symbols appear in a somewhat different manner. The game uses a Spin Mechanic and benefits from Cluster Pays with cascading reels.
What you have in front of yourselves is a column of 25 independent symbols. In each spin, the Key Scatter is the last symbol in the column. Now, in order to form a winning combination, you need to land at least three matching symbols on adjacent positions, either horizontally or vertically.
Once the winning combo is formed, the winning symbols will disappear, making room for new symbols to appear, and also moving the Key Scatter closer to the centre of the playing grid. This is called the Avalanche since the remaining symbols fall in the vacant cells. Every winning combination will also create a Wild symbol, thus giving you more chances to continue landing successive winning combos.
The goal is to get as many Keys in the centre, so as to trigger free spins. Set the coin value ($0.01 – $2) and the bet level (1-10), and you are ready to go. Bet as low as $0.10, or as high as $200, it’s entirely up to you.
