Let your mind wander back to 1957 when the first Space shuttle took off from earth and landed on the surface of the moon.
Big Time Gaming plays with the idea of a shuttle takeoff but instead of a monochrome background with old-school graphics, you will find an aesthetically pleasing design with a grid set on a space shuttle launchpad against a neon-lit city skyline.
The Final Countdown slot has that retro-futuristic feel to it that enhances its overall design. The grid of the game is framed by a lighting rid and within it, you will find 6 reels and 4,096 ways to form winning combinations.
Players shouldn’t have a hard time with this game all thanks to the bonus features and a max win of 36,000x per spin.
How to play
