Welcome to Finn’s Golden Tavern slot, where the pirates are all Irish and getting that pot of gold takes more than a pint of rum.
The follow up to the successful Finn and The Swirly Spin slot machine, this new NetEnt game shows that this game studio really knows how to make the most of its sequels.
The Dead or Alive 2 slot took all the best bits of the original and added extra layers and the Reel Rush 2 slot felt different enough to be it’s own entity.
What you have here is still the great 5×5 grid slot where the symbols swirl into place, from the leftmost corner of the reels, all the way around to the centre of the game. Every win explodes, giving you an avalanche where more symbols will swirl into place, and you get a second chance at another win.
If the first took you to the centre of the Emerald Isle, this Finn’s Golden Tavern mobile slot is where this leprechaun goes to hang his hat and grab some gold for his pot.
The only problem is that if we are to believe the theme, Finn likes to get his treasure from some nefarious character, making this far more dangerous than the original machine.
Which is kinda nice as NetEnt has had to simplify the mechanics. Instead of 4 bonus in-game features, you get 3, instead 4 free spins bonuses that you have to unlock, you only get one.
The free spins are still hard to trigger as you need to get enough wins to get the Chest Treasure from the start all the way to the centre of the reels – through those avalanching wins.
Once you do, you only get 5 spins, and every wild you use in a win will increase the multiplier by 1. How do you get wilds? By getting a win of 3 or more symbols either horizontally or vertically.
So basically, on every second win, you get an increase of that sweet multiplier. We’ve rarely seen much beyond 3x or 4x, but even there we’ve won 80x to 100x our bet.
It doesn’t have the huge wins of the Ozzy Osbourne slot; if you get close to 1,000x your bet you’ll be having a good day. This Pirate themed game is as much about the adventure as catching that gold.

Line Wins and Wilds: Any horizontal or vertical line of 3 or more symbols create a win. On a win, a wild star symbol will appear in its place.
Avalanching Reels: Every win will make the symbols explode and more will swirl into place from the bottom left-hand corner, moving all the symbols towards the centre.
Coins Ahoy: Each of the coin symbols has a value of 5, 10, and 50. When you get a win of 3 or more coins, the values are added together, giving you a bigger win.
Random Coin Feature: If the Free Spins chest symbol is in the immediate loop of symbols around the central position, you may find that any low paying symbols all turn into coin symbols.
Coin Win Fist Slam Feature: In the main game on a no-win spin can trigger this random feature and move coin symbols so that a win is guaranteed.
Free Spins: After all wins or avalanches have been paid out, if the Free Spins Chest symbol is in the central position then you get 5 free spins. You start with a 1x multiplier, which then increases by one after each wild win that you get.
If you get the chest symbol gets to the centra, you'll activate the random coin feature.
Traditionalists will be annoyed that this doesn't spin like other 5 reel slots, but if you're a traditionalist you probably won't like grid slots or Megaways games.
And that's ok. You have thousands of real money slot games, but those of us who like something just a little bit different get this Finn's Golden Tavern slot on mobile amongst a small unique selection.
We like the improvements they've made: the simpler bonus games, the way you get a multiplier, and the bigger top win.
It is a much more volatile slot than the original, however, so if you are a big fan of the first one beware.
That said we think you'll have fun and should almost definitely take a couple of spins, if only to enjoy the uniqueness of it all.
