This slot plays on a 5×5 layout but it is unlike any we’ve seen before. Instead of 5 reels, the symbols travel across one continuous path twirling towards the centre. If you match 3 or more symbols in a column or row, they will vanish, earning you a small reward and a cascade of symbols.
Your goal is to get enough of these cascades to move the golden key from the very outside of the swirl to the lock in the middle. If no more matches can be made, the key moves back to its start position and you begin a new turn. Each ‘spin’ therefore is not so much a traditional spin but more of a respawn of the symbols.
Speaking of symbols, NetEnt has chosen a fair few for you to enjoy during this game. There is a wooden spade, a wooden heart, an acorn, a four-leafed clover, a golden horseshoe, and a glittering ruby. Your Wild is a cute cartoon star with a pair of big black eyes.
NetEnt has thought of everything when making this game, with even the music contributing a massive part to the play. When the key is in the outer rims, you can expect a sweet Irish-inspired tune. However, as the key moves, this background song gets more aggressive and up-tempo, really amping up the anticipation as the key nears its endpoint.
When you get to the centre, you will be transported through to the Free Spins world where you will have a choice of 4 options. Every time you enter the Free Spins world, you will earn a key which you can use to unlock the bonuses. These bonuses can also randomly occur in the base game.
The first area you unlock is the Sat Bar, home to the Starfall Wilds. 2 or more Star Wilds will be added to your reels.
With 4 keys, you unlock the Lava Lair and the Dragon Destroy feature. If there is no win, this feature will destroy a random number of symbols, hopefully enough to trigger an avalanche that results in a win for you.
If you get 9 keys, you unlock the Lucky Mug. Here you can find the Irish Luck feature, where either a horizontal or vertical line of the same symbols is added; resulting in a great win for you even if it doesn’t trigger an avalanche.
Finally, 16 keys gets you access you to the Golden Pot and the Magic Transform. With this, all the spade and heart symbols will become another higher paying symbol. This exciting feature has 16 outcomes, will you be lucky enough to grab a winning one?
NetEnt have truly outdone themselves. The graphics and the music are sublime, and the mechanics are amazing. Anyone who is a fan of Irish themed slots and unique games needs to check out Finn and the Swirly Spin! You can also play this game and many more on Svenska Slots.
