The Final Countdown Bitcoin Slot Review
The Swedish rock band Europe dropped their album called The Final Countdown back in 1986. Fast forward to the end of 2020 and Big Time Gaming (BTG) has released the 6×4 (reels x rows) and 4,096 ways to win slot of the same name. It’s got the Reel Clone bonus, Clone Wilds and two free spins with feature modifiers. Win up to a massive 36,000x bet jackpot!
The Final Countdown may have been released in 1986, but the artwork is decidedly more futuristic with electrifying colours. There’s a rocket to the left of the playing area ready to blast off. Big Time Gaming uses familiar symbols made from 4 large gemstones: red, purple, blue and green. There are also the A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 symbols which have the lowest payouts of the regular symbols. Not precisely thematic if you ask us, but the slot is not really about the band except for the song that comes with it.
The Final Countdown has an RTP in the region of 96.56% to 96.65%, on wager sizes of 0.20 – 10. We love rock bands, and if you do too then, we think you’ll love Twisted Sister from Play’n GO or Ozzy Osbourne from Netent.
Let’s begin our look at the special symbols with the wild, only appearing on reels 2-5. They’ll sub in for all of the regular paying symbols. The second special symbol is the scatter, which is useful in triggering one of two free spins modes: called The Countdown or Heading for Venus. The scatter can credit you up to 100x with 6 symbols.
The first mode offers 8 free spins with a 4x multiplier walking wild on the 2nd to 5th reels. Walking wilds get bigger on every re-trigger for up to 256x bet. A countdown display sits adjacent to the reels, beginning at 10. It resets the feature when it reaches 0. During free spins, the regular scatter is replaced by the countdown scatter and cuts the countdown display by up to 3. On the first re-trigger, you can add 4 extra spins, 2 extra spins on the next re-trigger but after that, the countdown scatters are removed from the game.
The second free spins game offers 15 free spins containing a Reel Clone on each spin having a velocity wild with a multiplier that randomly increases from 4x to 888x. If it’s over two reels, then it can grow in value from 4x to 26x, and 27x-255x if over 4 reels. Free spins can be re-triggered.
The Reel Clone may also randomly unlock during the base game, locking some or all of reels 2 to 5 together to produce identical reels. Cloned wilds expand up/down according to the number of reels, and the attached multiplier can grow up to 256x.
You can play The Final Countdown bitcoin slot on a tablet, mobile or desktop. It’s compatible with Android and iOS devices.
