Leading casino content developer Big Time Gaming has unveiled its latest musical masterpiece slot, The Final Countdown.
The game combines Europe’s legendary rock song of the same name with an intergalactic theme and a new volatility feature.
The Final Countdown will be distributed to operators in markets around the world by partners Relax Gaming and Scientific Games.
The title goes live on Wednesday, March 13, at 10pm (CEST) on LeoVegas where leading streamer Kim Hultman – known as Letsgiveitaspin – will do the first 100 spins to kick it off together with the rest of the Casinogrounds streaming community on Twitch and YouTube.
Nik Robinson, CEO of Big Time Gaming, said: “The Final Countdown is going to be a big one. It’s going to punch a hole in the sky as players launch towards planet big win with those iconic keyboard notes blasting away in the background.
“The Big Time Gaming team has done a phenomenal job with this slot and it really is truly remarkable. The strength of the tune combined with the incredible math and state-of-the-art mechanics has resulted in a slot that is out of this world.”
Simon Hammon, chief product officer at Relax Gaming, said: “BTG’s game launches are always accompanied by great anticipation and we are proud to be bringing The Final Countdown to players in partnership with Big Time Gaming.
“It is a game packed with innovative features to keep players engaged over extended play sessions, uniquely based upon the classic hit song that is well-known and loved by all.”
Kim Hultman, co-founder of Casinogrounds.com and Letsgiveitaspin added: “Big Time Gaming has done it again! I’m excited to do the first 100 spins on The Final Countdown™, this slot is one of its kind when it comes to both math and mechanics.”
On entering the game, players are met by two astronauts, Vegas and Venus, who are there to help them jump on board The Final Countdown and blast off into space and on to an intergalactic fortune.
The base game has Cloning Reels and massive Wilds that are injected into the reels as the clones expand to deliver a galaxy of big wins. The Cloning Reels can also drop a full complement of Scatters to trigger the feature.
With three or more Scatters in place, the game ignites its rockets and really takes off. Players are given the choice of which feature to launch – The Countdown or Heading for Venus.
Both are packed with extreme wins; the former offers Roaming Wilds and Sticky Wilds with a multiplier of up to 256-times, while the latter offers massive Velocity Wilds with a multiplier of up to 888-times, connecting any wins on the reels.
The Countdown feature also allows players to level up and increase the volatility of the game. In total, there are three levels to clear. Other game features include a Cliff Hanging feature where the last spin can always lead to a full re-trigger.
