If you're a fan of all things 80's, then you'll almost certainly know about the Europe rock anthem "The Final Countdown", which has been played at arenas around the world ever since. If you need a refresher, here it is below:
Big Time Gaming has launched their The Final Countdown slot and there's no doubt that it takes inspiration from the song, as you get the synth sound and large drum sounds that sound awfully familiar. We're also given a large rocket on a launchpad, neon light floors, and bright cityscape, making us ready to blast off and feel like a winner.
The symbols in The Final Countdown are strange, given the source material. Instead of a bunch of space themed icons, we're instead treated to a bunch of standard slot icons (9, 10, J, Q, K, A) as well as gems that are blue, red, green, and purple. We do get what appear to be a male and female astronaut, which serve as the high paying symbols and can act as a win multiplier.
The Final Countdown is a 6 reel, 4,096 ways to win slot that features expanding wilds, linked reels, multiplying wild symbols, stacked symbols, and walking wilds. The combination of paylines with game features give this slot a posted return to player (RTP) percentage of 96.6%, which is very healthy for an online slot.
I will say that this game is pure 80's cheese, and if you're like me, you're going to love it. I love that synth sound, and I had a huge grin on my face as I went through and played. As seems to be the norm for me, I did have some dry spells before I ended up scoring some large wins.
The Final Countdown is a game that I highly recommend, and I'll vouch that it plays brilliantly on your mobile screen as well.
