Playtech has announced, via their YouTube channel, that they are to release a Top Gun branded slot game – watch the trailer below and find out what features the slot will have.
YouTube is a convenient way for software providers to showcase their new and upcoming releases – Playtech is no different and has added a video trailer of their Top Gun slot. Playtech don’t add previews for most new games but has done so for Top Gun – probably due to the reason that the game is based on such an iconic film.
What does the trailer reveal?
Top Gun will be a 5 reels, 243 ways to win slot which can be played from 25p a spin. You will be able to play Top Gun across a wide range of devices including laptop, PC, tablet and mobile (including iOS and Android) which is good. Expect to hear the music from the film as well as actual footage and catchphrases.
The slot game encapsulates the iconic 1986 film perfectly as the symbols are represented by the popular characters of Iceman (played by Van Kilmer), Goose, Stinger, Jester and Charlie. Unfortunately, Maverick (played by Tom Cruise) doesn’t appear but this is probably due to image rights/licensing issues.
In the base game, there is a randomly triggered Dogfight Wilds feature where a jet flies across the reels and shoot symbols to transform them into wild symbols – up to 15 symbols can be changed into wilds for big wins hopefully. This feature also applies in the Danger Zone Free Games feature where you are rewarded with 8 free spins. The frequency of the Dogfight Wilds is more frequent too!
Playtech hasn’t released a branded title in a while so there is much anticipation surrounding Top Gun. The film may be cheesy but it’s achieved cult status and should prove a very popular slot game. To see the Top Gun slot in action, watch Playtech’s official YouTube trailer below:
In the meantime…
You can play Playtech slots right now at various online casinos – I recommend the recently added NetBet Vegas (which is part of NetBet Casino). They have all the Playtech games you need with the Marvel titles (think Wolverine and Iron Man 3), branded titles like The Mummy and The Sopranos as well as volatile offerings like Sultan’s Gold and Great Blue. You also have new releases like Fortunate 5 and The Riches of Don Quixote.
