Finn is back, everyone! Finn and the Candy Spin is the third-ever NetEnt slot featuring Finn the Leprechaun. This time, Finn is not visiting taverns or anything like that. He’s actually visiting a candy palace, so get ready for yet another sugary adventure. This is a 5-reel video slot with 5 rows and Swirly Spins. There are no regular paylines, as is usual with Finn. You can win up to 336x the stake, which is quite a low payout for a game of this calibre.
Despite its underwhelming win potential, Finn and the Candy Spin are a true masterpiece with features. Special features include Wilds and a host of random modifiers that can activate on any given spin. Furthermore, you also get Free Spins, but before the gratis rounds can start, you get a choice between 4 different Spin options. As this is not a Buy bonus slot, you cannot purchase Free Spins – you must trigger them organically.
Finn and the Candy Spin is set to become a hit for NetEnt. However, can the third release compare to the two originals? And if yes, how? All answers lie in our review below. Be sure to check out all the special features in the slot, as they help you win big. Finn and the Candy Spin also has a massive betting range of $0.10-$500 which is a bit unusual for online slots. The RTP is 96.62%, while variance stands at medium low.SHOW MORESHOW MORESHOW LESS
Finn and the Swirly Spin and its sequel Finn’s Golden Tavern were great successes for NetEnt. Finn, the happy-go-lucky leprechaun is always getting into random adventures, but it seems the third one is a sugar-themed one. Finn and the Candy Spin feature a candy palace with sugary treats and random features.
Instead of a classic game board, the slot features a 5×5 grid with Swirly Spin mechanics. There are no paylines or winning ways, there’s just the Swirl that moves icons in a swirl-like motion on the grid towards the centre of the grid. If icons land in a horizontal or vertical line in 3-5 matching icons, there’s a win.
On each Win, you get Wilds placed in the centre, which boosts winning potential.
Speaking of potential, we were sad to see that the game has such a low payout potential. It’s a low-medium slot in terms of variance, but does that mean that there should be a small payout potential? It’s obvious you’ll have to rely on the features to entertain you, as the game is not built for high rollers.
On the other hand, there’s a massive betting range that starts at $0.10 and ends up at $500 per spin. The slot also has a 96.62% RTP and 336x win potential.
Regarding the icons in the game – it’s a combination of candy that pay between 4x and 50x the stake for a suit of 5.
You can play the game at every NetEnt online casino both for real money and for free.
The features are a fun thing in this game. First of all, the game has a unique mechanic that that does not have paylines. Instead, icons roll on the 5×5 grid in circular motion as a swirl towards the centre of the grid. Matching icons in horizontal and vertical lines as 3, 4, or 5-of a kind delivers wins. Wilds are added in the centre after wins.
Now, the features in the game can be split into two parts – the random modifiers and Free Spins.
Random modifiers are:
These modifiers can happen on any random spin in the base game. They also appear in Free Spins.
To get into Free Spins, you need the Free Spins Key that is placed on the starting position on the grid on each new spin. If it reaches the centre, you get the Spins. There’s also a Key meter that counts up to 999 Keys that cannot be reset. At the start of the Free Spins round, you pick one of 4 Spins options – Wild Sugar Lab, Ice-Cream Palace, Cotton Candy Lab, Gumball Factory. You can pick them, but if the meter has specific values, a pre-determined feature unlocks. For instance, values 1, 4, 9, or 16 on the meter trigger Wild Sugar Lab, Ice-Cream Palace, Cotton Candy Lab, and Gumball Factory, respectively.
Is Finn and the Candy Spin a worthy sequel to the popular franchise? Remains to be seen. From what we’ve seen, the game is a fun-filled adventure brimming with potential, but the potential does not translate into profit or winnings. Instead, you’ll surely have fun with the random modifiers and four types of Free Spins, but don’t expect to win something substantial.
The game has a 5×5 grid with a Swirly Spin mechanics we’ve last seen in Adventures Beyond Wonderland Magical Maze by Quickspin. It’s a novel concept, but is it enough to attract players and make them stay? You decide. The game is available at all NetEnt online casinos with bets starting at $0.10 per round.
