Review of Finn and the Swirly Spin
There’s no doubt about it, the luck of the Irish will be on your side in this rainbow filled colourful fantasy slot game. Finn and the Swirly Spin is a video slot containing that good old Irish charm which most of us love oh’ so much, and along with the fact that it is created by one of our favourite casino games providers, NetEnt, it really cannot go wrong.
From the very beginning upon opening Finn and the Swirly Spin, you will be whisked away into some sort of enchanting world surrounded by vivid green trees, and rainbows with pots of gold at the end. In the left corner you will see our pal Finn playing the flute and just waiting for us to hit the gold.
NetEnt breaks new ground with an innovative take on cascading reels
Another thing that really stands out, apart from the clever reel layout, is the music and sound effects, it’s an element in this game which really showcases what it is about, it is very upbeat and fun just as the game is itself.
Finn and the Swirly Spin doesn’t remind us of any other Irish themed slot game, even though we have so many games with this sort of style, NetEnt has done a magical job in making this one stand out from the crowd and perhaps it has something to do with the symbols.

How to win at Finn and the Swirly Spinn
Before you begin spinning and swirly around, it would be wise to adjust your betting limits in this game. The minimum amount that you can bet is £0.10, and the maximum amount that you can bet is £200.
There is so much to see and do on Finn and the Swirly Spin, we really like that NetEnt went all out on the Bonus features because as we all know, it’s rare to make a good slot game without some great features in it. Finn and the Swirly Spin is based on a 5x5 game grid with 10 paylines.
Despite having the usual amount of reels, the layout is actually pretty different from what you would expect.
The reels are based on a sort of stone base in a beautiful field where you can see a colourful rainbow in the background along with our friend and mascot, Finn.
There are many different symbols featured on the reels, such as a golden horseshoe, a bright green 4-leaf clover, a golden key, and so many more joyful symbols. The way in which the grid works is that when you hit a winning combination, those symbols will be destroyed and the remaining symbols will fall down into the vacant spaces looking like an avalanche. So NetEnt refers to this as an Avalanche (trademarked) win.
The Wild symbol in Finn and the Swirly Spin is a Star, if you are lucky enough to have a win with the inclusion of one of these Wilds, the Wild symbol will explode and destroy all of the other symbols which are on the same row, or column. By having this feature, NetEnt is offering players to gain some larger wins, and we can’t complain about that!
