Finn’s Golden Tavern is the sequel to the popular NetEnt slot Finn and Swirly Spin. This game sees Finn looking for treasure using a treasure map he found. Finn is a leprechaun who wants you to join him on his magical mission to find treasure. The graphics are excellent, and you should play the game with the sound on to hear Finn’s random comments.
The slot is somewhat unusual in that it has spiral reels and cluster pays on a 5x5 grid. When a winning combination forms, the symbols that form the winning combination disappear from the reels. The other symbols take their places and if more winning combinations are formed, there are more payouts. Winning combinations are any vertical or horizontal matches of three symbols in a single row or column. Symbols seen on the reels are golden coins, wild stars with eyepatches, the free spins chest, beer mugs and alcohol bottles. Coin values range from 0.01 to 50, which makes the minimum bet 0.10 and the maximum bet 500. This makes the slot good for both low and high rollers. While this slot layout is definitely different from other slots, it does not take long to figure out how the game works. Get playing by choosing your betting level, and then clicking on the spin button or by setting the auto spins.
You can win 1,000 times your stake in a spin which translates into a win of up to $500,000, which is quite a nice chunk of money. This is only possible when you place the maximum bet before spinning the reels. The slot has medium to high volatility and an RTP (return to player) of 96.1%, which is fairly average. You will want to trigger the free spins round and other special features, since this is where you will get more wins.
The star wild symbols can appear on all spins except the initial spin of the spiral reels. Wilds substitute for all symbols other than the free spins treasure chest symbol. When a wild forms part of a coin win, it receives a random value. Wilds do not form their own wins. Wilds that help form winning combinations destroy symbols that are both horizontally and vertically next to it. When there is a win without a wild symbol, a wild is added to the reels after the cluster win explodes and disappears. Winning combinations continue to explode until there are no more wins.
When you see three or more golden coins in a row with at least three coins, they pay out the cumulative value seen on each one. The coins then disappear letting new coins avalanche onto the reels.
The Random Coin Feature can activate when an avalanche is complete. In this feature, one or two of the lower valued symbols are randomly picked, and they change into coins. The coin values are randomly allocated to each new golden coin.
The treasure chest is the free spins symbol. This symbol starts off on the bottom left hand side of the reels, which is furthest from the center of the spiral. The chest moves closer to the center but does not always make it all the way to the middle. When the chest reaches the middle space, players are awarded free spins. Play the free spins after all the avalanche payouts are complete. There are five free spins if the chest makes it all the way to the center of the reels.
During the free spins round, there is a multiplier meter. This meter goes up by one each time a new wild appears in the free spins avalanche. When the meter advances five steps the multiplier increases by one. All subsequent free spins pay out with this multiplier.
Finn gets a bit frustrated when he does not see a winning spin. In some non-winning spins, this feature randomly activates. Finn simply will not have a loss and slams his fist on the reels. This moves a coin symbol so that it helps to form a winning combination. The Fist Slam Feature only activates when there are at least three coin symbols on the reels with two of them in line for a win. The third coins is then moved to the other two coins to form the win. The third coin must be standing by itself, and not be adjacent to any other coins on the reels.

Finn’s Golden Tavern is an excellent slot from NetEnt. The special features add excitement to the game. We like the spiral reels that shake things up a bit from the regular slot reels we have come to expect. We like the free spins feature with its multiplier meter. It can take a while before the free spins trigger, however, the cascading or avalanching reels can provide multiple wins in a single spin. We like the Fist Slam Feature because this helps us win even when we thought there was no win. Overall this is a great slot game.
