Online casino software companies are getting ready for the winter season by releasing tons of new slots this month, covering a very wide range of topics. Each looks great in its own way, but some have us more excited than others due to their unique gameplay or amount of bonus features. Don’t worry, the sheer volume of titles announced this week guarantees that there’s a little something for everyone this autumn, no matter what genre you’re into.
The first release this week is one of Betty Dee’s most hated genres, “Leprechauns & Gold”, however this time she might enjoy it since it’s arrived with a new twist – literally. The unique title from NetEnt is called Finn and the Swirly Spin and it boasts 5 reels and 5 rows, but these reels certainly don’t roll in a traditional way. Symbols arrive in a swirling motion, going from the outside positions and then shimmying onto the middle ones. It’s quite a daring move and it will be interesting to see how players respond to the new method.
Reels don’t award credits in a traditional way via paylines and instead issue awards for “win clusters”, which as you can probably guess are… clusters of winning symbols. In an exciting “twist”, once funds are added to balances, the cluster disappears and the symbols above fall down in their places to hopefully create another winning cluster. This type of reel configuration is usually referred to as
collapsing reels or
Finn and the Swirly Spin will also attract more than curious players looking to try something new because tons of crazy additions astound, as well. An
Irish Luck feature randomly creates a successful row, a
Magic Transform mode morphs lower-paying results into higher-paying ones, and
Starfall Wilds randomly adds 2 to 5 Wilds across the reels. That certainly is a lot of action for a peaceful Irish meadow.
When adding these to the machine’s four unique free spins possibilities and cutting-edge graphics, perhaps we’ll have to agree that this isn’t one of the usual, boring, stereotypical Leprechaun games often encountered. However, only time will tell if the “swirl spin” will catch on with the masses – good luck, Finn!
