Top Gun is a Playtech-powered slot game with 5 reels and 243 ways to win. Playable from 25p to £1,250 a spin, it’s based on the iconic 1986 film which stars Tom Cruise as Maverick and Van Kilmer as Iceman. The film is regarded as one of the best action films of all-time with the quote “I feel the need…the need for speed!” being one of the most famous quotes ever.
Graphically superb, it uses the Turbo Mode feature for extra fast spinning and all the famous characters from the movie including Charlie, Iceman, Jester, Stinger and Goose. Tom Cruise, as Maverick, doesn’t appear but surely this is down to image rights.
Available to play on desktop (laptop/PC), mobile and tablet devices, you will hear the iconic soundtrack playing as you spin the reels – there’s also footage from the film which really adds to the excitement. Anyway, in terms of bonus features you have the Dogfight Wilds feature in the base game – up to 15 Dogfight Wilds can appear for huge wins. Randomly triggered, the jet flies onto the screen and shoots symbols on the reels turning them into wilds.
The main attraction is the Danger Zone Free Games feature which is triggered when you get 3 Jet Free Games symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 simultaneously. You will be rewarded with 8 free spins but you will benefit from enhanced Dogfight Wilds and hopefully sky-high wins.
Graphically superb, Top Gun is an action-packed slot game with the potential for big wins in both the base game and free spins feature – I found it to be a nicely balanced medium variance slot with my biggest return to date a cool 610 times my stake in the free spins feature.
Fans of the film will surely love this game and for good reason – if you like movie-inspired slots, Playtech have produced quite a few. I would recommend the Marvel Series titles with The Avengers and Iron Man 3 being the pick of the bunch in my opinion.
