Big Time Gaming is back for more music-inspired mayhem, this time based on Swedish poodle-haired rockers Europe and their classic 80s hit The Final Countdown. This follow up to the Danger: High Voltage slot is played using a 6 reel, 4,096 ways to win game engine and comes with cloning reels, cloning multiplier wilds and 2 free spin rounds. Play this super volatile game on all devices from between 20p and £20 per spin.
There’s a futuristic look to the design in The Final Countdown. With a cityscape in the background and a rocket ready to blast off to the side of the reels, you’ll see lower value royal values plus more lucrative gemstone symbols. The best of these is the purple jewel which offers payouts of 25 times your stake for a 6-symbol combination. The blonde woman is the base game wild. Big Time Gaming has packed plenty of extras into this explosive slot:
- Reel Clone feature – on any spin, the reels can clone. This can duplicate the symbols anywhere from reels 2 through to 5.
- Clone Wilds feature – if a wild lands on a cloned reel, it can expand. How big the expansion is depends on how many reels are cloned. A 2×2, 3×3 or 4×4 cloned wild also delivers a multiplier of 4x, 27x or 256x.
Land 3 or more of the bonus scatter on the same spin and you’ll trigger the feature round. You’ll then have the pick of the following 2 free spins features:
The Countdown Free Spins feature – choose this and you’ll receive 8 free spins. Throughout this feature, 2×2 roaming wilds are in play. Look out here for the countdown scatter which can add more free spins to your total. Each re-trigger also increases the size of the wilds and their associated multipliers which can send payouts rocketing by up to 256x.
Heading for Venus Free Spins feature – 15 free spins are on offer here complete with cloned reels that can land on any free spin. Look out too for the velocity wilds that offer multipliers of between 4 and 888x depending on their size.
Big Time Gaming has come up trumps with this sequel to Danger: High Voltage. The futuristic design is rather well done and of course you’ll hear The Final Countdown blasting away as you spin. Be warned though. This is an extremely volatile slot.
You can expect lengthy down spells waiting to trigger the free spins feature. The extra goodies on offer with the free spins can make it well worth hitting though – you can win a mind-blowing 36,000 times your stake on each free spin! If you can cope with the sky-high variance, then it’s well worth blasting off with The Final Countdown. I also recommend you try other Big Time Gaming slots with Holy Diver MegaWays my pick.
