About Finn and the Candy Spin

Finn and the Candy Spin is Finn’s third and final adventure, after the incredible (and initially unforeseen) success of Finn and the Swirly Spin and its successor, Finn’s Golden Tavern. The first games’ leprechaun-heavy theme has made way for a Candy Crush-esque fantasy world, filled with cupcakes, frosting, candies, and Yeti monsters (?).

Gameplay and features

Finn and the Candy Spin is played on familiar territory, that is if you ever played the original Finn and the Swirly Spinn. There are no paylines, but symbols are placed in a maze-like 5 x 5 grid.

Winning combinations are formed when three or more identical symbols line up. After the winning amount is determined, winning symbols disappear in a Zuma/Candy Crush fashion, leading to a “swirling” effect. Natural (without wilds) three-symbol winning combinations leave behind a wild, helping you form more wins.

Betting starts at 0.10 per spin and goes up to 500 per spin.

Premium symbols pay between 8x and 50x the bet for 5-of-a-kind. Variance is low to medium.

Mystery features

Mystery features can be activated at random during the base game:

  • Sugar Rush: 2-5 wilds are added to the grid.
  • Yeti Destroy: symbols are destroyed, resulting in at least one win.
  • Candy Luck: all low-win symbols on a row or reel are transformed into the same premium symbol.
  • Pop Transform: all low-win symbols on the entire grid are transformed into a premium symbol.

Free Spins Bonus Features

Four free spins bonuses are waiting to be unlocked, with every won free spins bonus awarding a key.

  • Wild Sugar Hub (1 key): 7 free spins with the Sugar Rush feature activated at the beginning of each spin.
  • Ice-Cream Palace (4 keys): 3 free spins with the Yeti Destroy feature on every spin plus a sticky wild.
  • Cotton Candy Lab (9 keys): 4 free spins with the Candy Luck feature active on every spin.
  • Gumball Factory (16 keys): 2 free spins with the Pop Transform feature active on each spin.

Finn and the Candy Spin Bonus Buy

Jurisdiction permitting, you can buy direct access to any of the unlocked free spins bonuses at a cost of 50x the bet. Every Bonus Buy grants an extra key besides the free spins bonus itself, so if you are eager to play all four different bonus features, buying them is the quickest way to go.

CasinoWizard’s verdict: 3 out of 5 stars

After the somewhat unexpected popularity of Finn and the Swirly Spin, sequels were inevitable and the only thing truly surprising about Finn and the Candy Spin is why it took NetEnt so long to release it. After all, Finn’s first swirly adventures took place in 2017 and 2019.

Looking at the gameplay nothing much has changed (again), which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The pace is slow, leaving enough time for special features to kick in and free spins bonus rounds to drag out for a long time. Don’t be surprised to get ten or more “swirls” within each free spin or base game round, slowly working toward a big win or reaching the free spins bonus.

Adding a bonus buy option may be a stretch, given the slot’s low variance. This is a slot that works well for the casual player, not the thrill-seeking bonus buyer.
