The Final Countdown Slot
Big Time Gaming has clearly decided to indulge a little 80s nostalgia with this release! Inspired by the soft metal mega hit of Europe’s The Final Countdown of 1986, this is a chance to blast off from a launchpad of six, Ways to Win reels in pursuit of astronomical rewards for all you casino cosmonauts!
ABOUT THE FINAL COUNTDOWN
Big Time Gaming has made its name with the success of its hugely popular Megaways slots, however The Final Countdown goes for a more conventional base game for its launch vehicle. Its six reels, set against the futuristic, neon-lit cityscape, stand four symbols high and in conjunctions with its pay rule offer 4,096 Ways to Win per spin. The symbol set is rather conventional with six Royals from 9 to A followed by four gemstones for higher pays. Where things get a little more interesting is with the action of Reel Cloning that can trigger on any spin.
This random reel modifier will ensure anywhere between two and four identical reels will line up between reels 2 and 5. That’s already a boost to your chances, but the reel rocket fuel can flow if you get a Clone Wild blasting off instead. These can dominate between two and four of those middle reels, and apply a multiplier to any wins they generate. A two-reel Clone Wild operates with a x4 multiplier, three reels ups that to x27 and the full payload of four reels is a potent x256 powered engine for big wins!
FREE SPINS BONUS FEATURES
To boost you into the orbit of The Final Countdown’s bonus games, you’ll be looking to land three or more of its Bonus Scatters in the base game. This launches a choice of two free spins missions, the Countdown Free Spins or the Heading For Venus Free Spins. Which to sign up for? Well here are the mission details:
- Countdown Free Spins – Launched with eight free spins, this mission features Roaming Wilds with one 2×2 version floating around on reels 2 to 5 during all spins with a x4 multiplier added to its powers. But there’s more. A countdown meter, starting at 10, gets chipped away by every Scatter that lands too. Get it to zero before free spins are used up and the feature will retrigger, but now with an expanded Roaming Wild with a bigger multiplier.
- Heading For Venus Free Spins – this mission launches with fifteen free spins, and with a guaranteed Reel Clone event on every spin. Adding more impact to this, a Velocity Wild can grace those Reel Clones and its special power is to randomly grow giving you a chance to boost wins by between x4 and a staggering x888 multiplier!
For Europe (the band) fans it’s also worth noting that these bonus games also have the added delights of firing up playback of The Final Countdown itself to provide a nostalgic 80s soundtrack to your journey towards the starry wins these reels can deliver.
Somewhat simpler than Big Time Gaming’s famous Megaways game, The Final Countdown is still a reel blast to play, especially for players who love a volatile pocket rocket to spin on their mobile devices. All together now . . .’It’s the Final Countdown! Na na naaaah naaaah, na na na nah nah!”
