The Final Countdown

You know the song, now it’s time to get to know the slot. The Final Countdown video slot not only boasts the soundtrack but also has dual bonus games and several of special features contained within.

The Final Countdown slot: tips

The Final Countdown slot doesn’t follow the traditional payline structure of most video slots. Instead, you’ll be awarded any time three or more identical symbols land in consecutive reels, beginning at the leftmost reel – regardless of whether or not the symbols are directly connected to one another. Should the winning symbol appear more than once in a single reel, then a multiplier will increase for each time it does so. This creates up to 4096 ways to win.

The Final Countdown winning symbols

The playing card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K and A will award between 0.4x and 1x your total stake for landing winning lines of six-of-a-kind. Next, four colored gemstones comprise the high value symbols in The Final Countdown slot. The green gem awards up to 1.25x, the blue up to 1.5x, the red up to 2.5x, and, with the highest payout value, the purple gem awards up to 25x your total stake. The purple will also award for just two matching symbols in a winning position, while other symbols require at least three.

The scatter symbol is used to trigger bonus features, but can also form wins on its own. Scatter symbols are able to form winning lines from both the leftmost and rightmost reels, and offer a maximum payout of 100x your stake should you land six.

The Final Countdown special features

Land three or more scatter symbols in any position to trigger a bonus feature. You’ll choose between The Countdown or Heading for Venus bonuses. In The Countdown, you receive eight free spins, with roaming wilds and a special Countdown retrigger. The Countdown, which you’ll see beside the reels, begins at 10. Should it reach 0, the feature retriggers and the Countdown resets. The Countdown decreases by up to three whenever the special Countdown scatter lands. The roaming wild moves around reels 2-5, carrying a x4 multiplier that will be applied to any win it is a part of. This multiplier increases with each retrigger, and can grow to up to x256.

In Heading for Venus, you’ll get 15 free spins with Velocity Wilds in play, and a guaranteed Reel Clone on every spin. The feature can also be retriggered by landing three or more scatters. Velocity Wilds occur during a Reel Clone and can grow from x4 to x888 at random.

If the Reel Clone feature kicks in, then two to four reels will completely match one another. Wilds will expand horizontally and vertically based on the number of reels cloned. Clone wilds are wilds that will expand horizontally and vertically based on the number of reels cloned. If two reels are cloned, the wilds will expand to include a x4 multiplier. This multiplier will grow to x27 if three reels are cloned. With four reels cloned, the wild multiplier reaches a maximum of x256.
