NetEnt Unveils New Leprechaun Adventure: Finn and the Candy Spin

In a recent announcement, NetEnt, a front-runner in digital gaming solutions since 1996, unveiled their newest slot game, Finn and the Candy Spin. This game marks the third chapter in their celebrated leprechaun-themed series, following the success of Finn and the Swirly Spin and Finn’s Golden Tavern.

Finn and the Candy Spin, a 5×3 slot game with a low to medium volatility, invites players into an enchanting world of sweets. Fans of the legendary leprechaun Finn will be thrilled to join him in this latest escapade, which is rich in features like the Swirly Spin and Avalanche mechanics, along with four innovative random features.

The game’s specifics include:

  • Grid Structure: 3 rows, 5 reels
  • Volatility Level: Low-Medium
  • Maximum Win: 336 times the stake
  • Return to Player (RTP): 96.62%
  • Betting Range: 0.10 to 500
  • Release Date: November 9, 2023

NetEnt’s unique mechanics, Swirly Spin and Avalanche, enhance the gaming experience. The Swirly Spin feature, first introduced in Finn and the Swirly Spin, operates by arranging candy symbols in a spiral on a five-reel grid. A win is achieved by aligning at least three identical symbols, which then triggers the Avalanche mechanic, potentially leading to more wins.

The game becomes more dynamic with four random features: Sugar Rush, Yeti Destroy, Candy Luck, and Pop Transform. The Sugar Rush feature randomly places wild symbols on the grid, ensuring a winning combination. The Yeti Destroy feature eliminates symbols randomly, triggering the Avalanche mechanic for guaranteed wins, provided no wins are present on the reels.

In the Candy Luck feature, a random row or reel, excluding the Free Spin Key (scatter symbol), morphs into a uniform low or high-paying symbol, setting off a win and the Avalanche mechanic. The Pop Transform feature changes all low-paying symbols into high-paying ones.

The Free Spin Key scatter symbol activates free spins during random spins in the base game. As winning symbols are removed by the Avalanche mechanic, the scatter spirals around the reels, eventually activating the Free Spins feature once it reaches the grid’s center. Players can then choose one of four Free Spins Worlds: Ice Cream Palace, Gumball Factory, Cotton Candy Lab, or Wild Sugar Hub, based on the keys accumulated.

Nicholas Peters, Evolution’s chief business development officer for Europe, praised the slot for its artistic creativity and innovation, inviting players to immerse themselves in a delightful universe enriched with NetEnt’s distinctive gameplay features.

Earlier in July 2022, NetEnt announced a partnership with Holland Casino Online, allowing the Dutch iGaming operator to feature NetEnt’s highly acclaimed content.
