We Explore the Crazy Spiral Spin Mechanic in Finn’s Golden Tavern Slot From NetEnt!

Guts Casino has just added the latest instalment of the lucky leprechaun Finn themed slots, this time round in Finn’s Golden Tavern (NetEnt).

The first release to use this unique spiral spin mechanic was Finn and the Swirly Spin in 2017 now back in a brand new version with a few new twists and features added.

The base gameplay takes place in a 5×5 grid with a spiral layout, the wins are created by matching symbols horizontally or vertically, removed from the reels and causing wilds to be created, all remaining symbols then move closer towards the middle of the spiral, with new wins possibly being created and the process is repeated.

There are a couple of new additions in this versions with a variety of coin-based symbols now added (Coins Ahoy), along with a special Fist Slam feature which can create wins on a non-winning spin, but the main focus is getting the special Free Spins Treasure Chest symbol into the centre of the reels/spiral which triggers the bonus round.

Once the bonus round is triggered things heat up with 5 free spins and a multiplier feature added which rises on any win using a wild symbol, generally you may only reach a 2x or 3x multiplier but we did manage to get up to an 8x multiplier in our best bonus round.

Whilst no full re-trigger is on offer here, getting the Treasure Chest back into the middle of the spiral will activate a mini-feature converting lots of symbols into coins, adding further coins until a guaranteed win occurs!

Check out the gameplay video below to see how the Finn’s Golden Tavern slot plays.

Bonus Features

Fist Slam Feature

The Fist Slam feature is randomly activated during play when coin symbols are present on the reels but do not form a win the fist can slam onto the reels moving the coins into a winning position.

Free Spins

The free spins bonus round is triggered when the special Treasure Chest symbol reaches the middle of the spiral, any other wins and avalanches are played out and then you are awarded 5 free spins.

During the bonus round a special multiplier collection meter is active, wins that form and then use the wilds are collected in this meter, collecting 5 wilds raises the multiplier value by 1x, and this stays in play for the duration of the bonus round.

Whilst there is no bonus re-trigger if you manage to get the treasure chest symbol back into the middle during the free spins lots of coins are added onto the spiral creating even more wins.

Overall Opinions

Finn’s Golden Tavern slot is a very enjoyable medium variance slot from NetEnt, graphically superb and with a few new features and additions whilst retaining the core gameplay of the original slot.

In our playtests most of the bonus rounds ended up in the range of 20x right up to 200x stake, but continuing to play this slot whilst writing the review gave us one superb bonus round reaching an 8x multiplier resulting in a final win of over 400x stake, but in general this does seem to play like a medium variance slot.

Whilst we were a little disappointed above the lack of a re-trigger, the added coins feature is a reasonable substitute for getting the Treasure chest back to the middle of the spiral.

Overall worth playing if you enjoyed the original or are looking to try out something a little different from a regular slot!
