Final Countdown Technical Features
Final Countdown is inspired by the classic, super-catchy Europe song of the same name. It’s played on a grid containing 6 reels, 4 rows, and 4,096 ways to win, with an RTP of 96.5%.
Match two or more standard symbols (or three or more for some symbols) across adjacent reels, starting from the first reel, to win a cash prize! The Purple Gem pays from 0.5x to 25x your bet, while the Red Gem offers up to 2.5x, The Blue Gem is worth up to 1.5x, and the Green Gem pays as much as 1.25x.
In the lower-paying symbols category, the Ace awards up to 1x your bet, followed by the King, which is worth up to 0.75x. Land the Queen or Jack symbols on adjacent reels to win up to 0.6x your bet. Finally, the 10 and 9 pay up to 0.5x and 0.4x your bet, respectively.
Press the ‘spin’ button to play Final Countdown, and click on the ‘menu’ button to access the help section.
Tap the arrows in the ‘stake’ section of the control panel to set up your bet: you can wager between 0.20 to 20.00 per spin.
Final Countdown Bonus Features
The Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols apart from the Scatter and lands on reels 2 to 5 only.
The Scatter symbol can award up to 100x your bet for 3 to 6 anywhere on the reels. It can also trigger the Feature Selection.
On every spin, the Reel Clone may create two to four identical reels (along the middle three reels only) to help you collect big wins!
When a Reel Clone occurs, any Wilds involved will expand vertically and horizontally. The number of reels cloned determines the size and value of Clone Wilds.
With a maximum of 4 reels cloned, Clone Wilds will apply the top multiplier of x256!
Land three or more Scatters anywhere to access the Feature Selection. You can choose between the Countdown Free spins or Heading for Venus Free Spins rounds.
Countdown Free Spins
Pick this feature to receive eight free spins. It begins with a x4 Roaming Wild on reels 2 to 5, which gets bigger each time you retrigger the feature — up to the maximum x256. You can win up to 14 free spins.
The Countdown Free Spins round revolves around a countdown displayed beside the reels. This starts at 10, and when it gets to 0, the feature is retriggered and the countdown resets to 10.
The Countdown Scatter symbol awards the same prize as standard Scatters and reduces the countdown by as much as three. When you retrigger the feature for the first time, you’ll get four additional free spins.
Two extra free spins will be awarded for the second retrigger. After that, the countdown and all Countdown Scatters are taken out of the feature.
Heading for Venus Free Spins
Choose this feature to receive 15 free spins and a Reel Clone on each spin! A Velocity Wild appears on every Reel Clone, which expands depending on the number of reels involved.
Velocity Wilds across 2 reels feature a random multiplier of up to x26. The random multiplier can be as much as x255 with Velocity Wilds over 3 reels, while Velocity Wilds over 4 reels can bring a random multiplier of up to x888!
Land 3 or more Scatters to pick up 15 extra free spins — you can retrigger this feature again and again without limits!
Final Countdown Theme and Design
Big Time Gaming has created a fun sci-fi setting with a cool ‘80s style for Final Countdown. The reels are positioned next to a huge rocket ship ready for the countdown to launch, with a huge futuristic city in the background.
You’ll also hear the classic song that the game is based on during the bonus features, which complements the fast-paced action perfectly, and the sound effects throughout fit nicely with the sci-fi theme, too.
Conclusion and Verdict
Final Countdown is a fantastic slot with an exciting theme, awesome features, and massive payouts of more than 35,000x your bet up for grabs! Big Time Gaming has created stunning visuals that fit the beloved ‘80s song perfectly, and the choice of two different Free Spins rounds is an incredible addition. Ready to blast off?
