Get Ready For St. Patrick’s Day With An NJ Slot That Uses The Luck Of The Irish

Written By Susan Brady on February 28, 2018 - Last Updated on March 1, 2018

Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day comes a new slot at New Jersey online casinos: Finn and the Swirly Spin. This unique game throws convention out the window and tries something new.

Not so new is the theme of our second offering this week, Baywatch. While it is a new slot, it’s a takeoff of the popular 1990s TV series that was also the basis for a hit movie in 2017. Both games have additional features that make it worth your while to test.

Let’s take a look…

Finn and the Swirly Spin

May the luck of the Irish be with you

This new offering from NetEnt eschews the traditional reel set and instead utilizes a 5×5 maze configuration. Wins produce a feature that is similar to cascading symbols, called Swirly Spin.

Any symbols involved in a win magically disappear and a Golden Star Wild takes its place, then the existing symbols rotate toward the center of the maze and new symbols are added at the beginning, allowing for multiple wins on one spin.

Presiding over the maze is our leprechaun Finn, who provides multiple bonus features like Starfall Wilds, Dragon Destroy and Magic Transformation. These features help propel your Free Spins Key symbol from the entrance to the maze to the center, where you will earn seven free spins. Within the free spins round are four special configurations, each one requiring more keys to open, with each level providing you with more ways to win.

The stats

  • Cascading symbols
  • Wilds
  • Multiple bonus features
  • Free spins round with four configurations

Surfs Up!

This popular show about lifeguards and the SoCal lifestyle has been translated into a slot by IGT. It features original cast members David Hasselhoff, Pamela Anderson, Yasmine Bleeth and David Charvet, as well as multiple beach-themed symbols. The Wild Wave is not just a standard wild, as it can randomly expand to the full height of the reel (and an additional two rows wide), almost guaranteeing a great win.

Hit three or more bonus scatter symbols to activate the free spins bonus round. Before spinning, you will choose two lifeguards to determine the number of free spins and which symbol will become stacked. Then it’s time to hit the beach and make some money!

The stats

  • Five reels/15 paylines
  • Wild and expanded wild
  • Teamwork feature
  • Free spins bonus round
