Finn's Golden Tavern Review
Finn's Golden Tavern slot is powered by NetEnt and is played on a 5x5 grid. With the Cluster Pays mechanic, NetEnt's favorite lucky mushroom (Finn) is back after the original Finn and the Swirly Spin slot. Playable from 10p per spin on Windows, iOS and Android devices, it features Avalanches, 2 Random features, Free Spins with increasing multipliers and loads of coin wins.
Theme and graphics
Finn's Golden Tavern is a sequel to NetEnt's popular online slot Finn and the Swirly Spin, and while the two games share many similarities in gameplay, the designs are quite different. While the first game is set outside in a sunny meadow, Golden Tavern is set in an old pub. The reels are designed to look like a treasure map on a wooden table, surrounded by candles, dice and pints of ale.
How to play
Like Finn and the Swirly Spin, Finn's Golden Tavern has a distinctive format where the symbols spiral on the reels instead of spinning on the reels. To form winning combinations, players must match symbols in groups of three or more. The winning symbols disappear and the reels shift to allow other symbols to take their place.
This is only the second slot machine we have seen in this format - or even comes close in terms of uniqueness. It really puts a new spin on slot games, and players will be impressed with the gameplay of Finn's Golden Tavern.
Finn's Golden Tavern Special Features
Fist Slam feature
Finn's Golden Tavern has a free spins feature and two different random features. Here is what you can expect. In the main game, a spin with no win can randomly trigger the Fist Slam feature. You will see Finn slam his fist on the table, which will move a coin symbol and generate a win.
Random Coin Feature
The other random feature is known as Random Coin Feature - when the chest symbol is in the direct loop of symbols around the central position in the free spins, this feature is activated and turns low value symbols into coin symbols.
In the original version, the objective was to get a key scatter symbol to the central position through a vortex - in a series of avalanches (basically, in a single spin). Here, it is the chest that you need to get into the central position to trigger the Free Spins. Once you get 5 free spins, the compass on the table turns into a multiplier meter that increases by one step for each wild that is created during the avalanches. For every 5 steps in the meter, the multiplier is increased by 1x.
Coin Bonus Feature
During the free spins round, if the chest symbol is in the center of the reels after the avalanches are completed, the coin bonus feature is activated. This feature places multiple coin symbols on the reels, which are assigned random values.
The big question now is - is Finn's Golden Tavern an improvement on the original? In our humble opinion, yes. You will not see many hardcore players riveted to the screen, that's for sure. The volatility and potential are far too low to appeal to thrill-seekers. However, there are some improvements that make the game a bit more appealing overall. For starters, it's far less complicated. While the original was packed to the brim with features, Finn's Golden Tavern is more straightforward. There's a free spin with an increasing win multiplier, and that's about it. The slight increase in potential is also welcome, of course.
While it looks great and plays well, we ultimately did not find Finn's Golden Tavern particularly engaging. It does not have what we are looking for in a video slot, which is the kind of excitement that gets your heart pumping. It can still tickle you a bit, but it's more on the pastel end of the thrill palette, if that makes any sense at all. If that's enough to get you excited, then you'll probably enjoy this game.
