Sharing is caring!

Our rating:
  • A highly volatile slot from Big Time Gaming with lots of ways to win
  • A sequel to Danger: High Voltage slot
  • Potential for huge wins but not a game for everyone

The Final Countdown slot from Big Time Gaming has a lot of ways to win and offers some serious payouts for those looking to win big. With such a highly volatile slot though comes long periods of little rewards so be sure to think about that before playing.

The theme here is based on the hit song of the same name, with a futuristic feel and some nice animations in the background, getting you ready for takeoff. The reels themselves are a little dull but overall I think it looks pretty good. You have a total of 6 reels here and 4 rows, creating a total of 4096 ways to win. To get going, just start by spinning the reels. You want to try and get a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols. These are as follows, ranked in ascending order as follows:

  • 9 (lowest value)
  • 10
  • Jack
  • Queen
  • King
  • Ace
  • Green Jewel
  • Blue Jewel
  • Red Jewel
  • Purple Jewel (highest value)

The Final Countdown Slot Bonuses and Features

Reel Clone. This is a feature that can occur on any spin whereby a reel clone will produce between 2 and 4 identical reels between 2 and 5. Note that this also includes Scatter symbols. This could generate quite a few wins if enough reels are cloned.

Clone Wilds. This feature occurs if a Wild symbol lands on a cloned reel. If so, it can expand depending on how many reels are cloned. a 2×2 Wild symbol will give you a multiplier of 4x, a 3×3 Wild will give you a multiplier of 27x and finally a 4×4 symbol will give you a multiplier of 256x.

Free Spins Bonus. This is triggered by landing 3 or more Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. You then have the option of picking 1 of 2 bonuses:

  • The Countdown Free Spins Bonus. This Bonus will give you 8 free spins. Furthermore, 2×2 Wild symbols are available during these free spins. You can also land the Scatter symbol to give you more free spins and improve the Bonus. Every retrigger will increase the size of the Wild symbols as well as the multipliers associated to them, increasing payouts by up to 256x.
  • Heading For Venus Free Spins Bonus. This time you’ll get 15 free spins as well as cloned reels which can land on any one of your free spins. Velocity Wild symbols can also land to give you multipliers up to a whopping 888x depending on how big they are. They occur only on a reel clone.

Conclusion

The Final Countdown slot from Big Time Gaming is a very high volatile sequel to Danger: High Voltage slot. It’s not a game for everyone, let’s just make that clear. There will be times when you win next to nothing, and that could last for some time. However, if your bankroll can handle it there could be some seriously impressive rewards in store. You can win up to a crazy 36,000x your stake on a single free spin which is one of the highest payouts we’ve seen. The game itself is pretty fun too. There are some good features here and the theme really complements how the game works. If we’re being picky the design could be a little bit better, the reels are just a little bland but not bad at all. In short, I really like this game because of the potential, but it isn’t for everyone. If you’re able and willing to go for long spells with little to no payouts in hope of big rewards then be sure to check it out and leave a comment down below to let us know how it goes.
