STAKES, PAYLINES & SYMBOLS
PAYTABLE FOR THE FINAL COUNTDOWN SLOT
PAYTABLE FOR THE FINAL COUNTDOWN SLOT
The Final Countdown is a 6 reel slot from Big Time Gaming that has 4096 paylines, and is the highly anticipated follow up to DHV, so this slot has also become know as Danger High Voltage 2.
Staking options see the minimum bet start out at just €0.20, and this steadily progresses before reaching the maximum stake on this slot of €20, there are a total of 9 bet sizes to play this game at, so there will be an amount you can get the reels spinning for that suits your bankroll.
THE FINAL COUNTDOWN SLOT REEL CLONE
UP TO 4 REELS CAN CLONE ON THE FINAL COUNTDOWN SLOT
LAND UP TO 256X MULTIPLIER ON FINAL COUNTDOWN SLOT
Reel cloning is a feature we have seen previously from BTG in their Egyptian themed game Queen of Riches Megaways™. On the final countdown during any spin the reel clone can produce between two and four identical reels between the reels 2 - 5, this can include the cloning of the scatter symbol, and during our play on this slot this was how we managed to trigger the bonus feature the most.
As far as hitting a massive win on the base game the reel clone also represents your best chances of hearing the big win music, this is because the slot has the possibility to land a huge wild with some impressive sized multipliers. What you can potentially hit is below.
2 Reels cloned = Chance of a x4 wild.
3 Reels cloned = Chance of a x27 wild.
4 Reels cloned = Chance of a x256 wild.
FINAL COUNTDOWN SLOT FREE SPINS FEATURE
3 OR MORE SCATTER SYMBOLS WILL TRIGGER THE FREE SPIN BONUS ON THE FINAL COUNTDOWN SLOT
CHOOSE THE COUNTDOWN OR HEADING FOR VENUS FREE SPIN FEATURE ON THE FINAL COUNTDOWN
To trigger the free spins bonus on The Final Countdown you need to land 3 or more of the scatter symbols anywhere in view. If you manage to hit 4 or 5 scatter symbols you will be awarded with a larger cash amount for triggering the feature, no extra spins will be awarded.
Once the scatters are in you are then presented with two features to choose from, these are The Countdown, and Heading for Venus.
the countdown bonus round feature
YOUR ROAMING WILD CAN REACH UP TO X256 ON THE FINAL COUNTDOWN SLOT
SCATTER SYMBOLS WILL CAUSE THE COUNTDOWN TO LOWER DURING THE BONUS ON THE FINAL COUNTDOWN
If you choose The Countdown bonus then you will begin the feature with 8 free spins and a 2 by 2 x4 roaming wild. This wild can place itself during each spin over any 4 positions between reels 2 - 5, and help to enhance any wins that is a part of.
You will also notice the countdown meter at the bottom of the screen, this will start on 10 and each time that you land a scatter symbol a number between 1 - 3 will be revealed, and that amount will be deducted from the countdown. Your goal is to get the meter down to zero, if you achieve this then you will re-trigger the feature and be awarded an extra 4 free spins, as well as your roaming wild increasing in size to 3 by 3 and holding a value of x27.
ROAMING WILD AT X27 ON THE FINAL COUNTDOWN SLOT BONUS ROUND
If you re-trigger the feature then the countdown meter will start back at 10, again your goal is to get this back down to zero by landing the scatters anywhere in view. If you achieve this then you will again re-trigger the feature and be awarded an extra 2 free spins, as well as your roaming wild increasing in size to 4 by 4 and holding a value of x256.
Once you have reached this stage you can no longer re-trigger the feature, and the countdown meter and countdown scatters will be removed from the feature.
heading for venus bonus round
Choosing the Heading for Venus bonus round will see you begin the feature with 15 free spins, and on each of these spins you will be guaranteed a reel clone of between 2 - 5 reels. The potential to win big on this feature comes in the form of the velocity wild, and depending on how many reels you have cloned, will depend on how high your wild can reach in value. Below are the possibilities.
2 Reels cloned - Wild value between x4 - x26
3 Reels cloned - Wild value between x27 - x255
4 Reels cloned - Wild value - between x256 - x888
The feature can be re-triggered by again landing 3 or more of the scatter symbols anywhere in view, achieving this will reward you with 15 extra spins.
THE FINAL COUNTDOWN SLOT REVIEW FINAL THOUGHTS
Whether this slot had been given the title Danger High Voltage 2 by players, or BTG themselves, it was potentially a massive risk given the success and popularity of DHV. We were certainly nervous about trying this one out just in case it didn't live up to all the hype it had received in the lead up to its release. Although we weren't blown away like the first time we played DHV, The Final Countdown is a very enjoyable and exciting slot to play, and you can definitely see that it has the potential to award some monster sized wins if it's in the mood.
Much like DHV we liked the fact that you have two bonus rounds to choose from. The heading for Venus bonus has similarities to the high voltage bonus on DHV, and The Countdown bonus could loosely be related to Gates of Hell. Which of these bonuses turns out to be the best payer only time will tell, we personally enjoy playing The Countdown bonus the best, but that is only because we had 2 zero paying bonuses on Heading for Venus.
Enjoy this March 2019 Big Time Gaming release and we hope you hit big! And enjoy singing along to the legendary track.
