The Final Countdown Slot From Big Time Gaming

Big Time Gaming is preparing for the release of The Final Countdown slot, or Danger High Voltage 2 as players might refer to it. The last release from BTG was Holy Diver, this January, and had a great impact on players who loved the "different" way to get the bonus, as it is more a grinding game that rewards players for playing it. But even before that release, there were rumors about DHV2, and with the release of Holy Diver players thought that was it. Well, Big Time Gaming is coming out with the news that Danger High Voltage 2 is actually named The Final Countdown and it will be released this March.

Before players will have the chance to play this new slot game, we want to show you the incredible potential it has and how the slot is similar but also in the same time different from the popular BTG slot, Danger High Voltage.

As you might see from the title of the new slot, the main theme is again based on a music hit, The Final Countdown, from the Swedish rock band Europe. The similarity with DHV is mostly is because of the 6 reels, 4 rows and 4094 ways similarity to it, but in rest it is a different slot game with different features.

The Reel Clone feature, which is available in both base game and in the bonus rounds, can synchronize up to 4 reels. These reels can also result in Clone Wilds which can also bring a up to 256x multiplier.

Landing 3 scatters will trigger the bonus round and players will have 2 options to chose from: The Countdown - With Roaming multiplier wilds that increases the multiplier for every retrigger and Heading For Venus - With Reel Clones and Velocity Wild.

The Final Countdown slot has a great futuristic design that matches really good with both the name and the song, so players will have a good experience while they play it.Just like in other BTG games, the low valued symbols are 9,10,J,Q,K and A, while the premium symbols are the green, blue,red and purple gems. The purple gem being the best symbol, rewarding a 25x the bet for 6 on a payline. In The Final Countdown, two special symbols will also appear next to the standard ones, the golden scatter and the wild symbol.

The potential is impressive in this new BTG slot, players will be able to win thousands of times the stake even in the base game.

The features only increase the potential wins, the Reel Clone feature can trigger randomly and when it is activated the middle 4 reels will sync up to produce identical reels where even scatter symbols can be synchronized and land on the reels. If a wild will land on the cloned reels, the Clone Wilds feature will activate and based on the number of reels that are cloned, the wild symbol will expand both in multiplier and in size, where 2,3 or 4 cloned reels can result in x4, x27 or even x256 multiplier wilds.

Now that we know the base game features, let's see what the bonus features have to show.

By landing 3 or more scatters, the players will be able to chose one of two features.

  • The Countdown - 8 Free Spins with roaming 2x2 multiplier wild moving on the reel set on each spin. To get the maximum potential in this bonus round, players will have to retrigger the feature. Landing scatterw will help the retrigger and each one will remove 3 steps from the countdown that starts at 10, when the countdown goes down to 0 the feature will retrigger and the potential win will also increase and the roaming multiplier wild will grow up to a x256.
  • Heading for Venus - 15 Free Spins where Reel Clone feature will be available on each spin and a Velocity Wild can appear on the cloned reels with the potential of increasing in size and a x888 multiplier.

From all the rumors and all the hype about DHV2, we believe that The Final Countdown is better than anyone expected it to be. The potential is clearly one to brag with and we believe this is the BTG slot everyone waited for.

The Final Countdown slot is a High Volatility slot game with a 96.65% RTP and a maximum win potential of 36.000x on a bet size from €0.20 up to €20 per spin, with great features and a great design and gameplay.

The release date set for mid March 2019.
