Top Gun is perhaps the most iconic movie of the 80s and the name of the slot reveals the theme instantly. The game is of course officially licensed by Playtech, who brand it as their premium product this year. The game is well done and captures the feel of the iconic movies as well as a slot can.
The game offers famous characters like Goose, Iceman or Stinger in the rolls. The bonus game draws its inspiration from the movie and features flying jets and missiles. The game has five reels with three rows with 243 ways to win.
Top Gun Slot overview
The Top Gun slot offers the aerial feeling of the iconic movie, with familiar and famous characters as symbols. The immersion is completed with a bonus game where your wingman ends up shooting up more wilds for you. The game runs like a normal slot with quite an incredible combination of wins. The game has two different wilds, and an additional Danger Zone feature.
The wild symbol, Top Gun logo in this case, substitutes for all other symbols except for the free game symbol, which is represented as a fighter jet. There is a separate payout if 5 wild symbols fall on consecutive reels, otherwise the wilds will be used to form the best winning combination. Wilds can fall on any reel. The free game symbol, or scatter, will launch the Danger Zone bonus game if they land on reels 1, 3 and 5. During the bonus game it is possible to gain up to 15 wilds.
Payout Table and How to Win
The payout table is readily available through the game, and the winning combinations always run from left to right. Minimum coin value is 0.01 dollar, while maximum is ten dollars. Maximum bet therefore runs from 25 cents to 250 dollars. Maximum win is 1500 times the line bet, although the bonus rounds and up to 15 wilds can change this quite a lot. The winning are always dependent on the coin value set by player.
Bonus rounds are activated when the scatter symbol appears simultaneously anywhere on reels 1, 3 and 5. The player is initially given 8 freespins, but the bonus can be re-triggered with the same conditions. In theory this can mean unlimited free spins, although in practice that is most unlikely.
It’s possible to trigger the enhanced Dogfight Wilds during Danger Zone free games. When the feature is activated even more wilds will appear on the screen, thus increasing all payouts. As an added bonus the game features movie clips and music from the original movie. The bonus game features your wingman firing missiles to get you some more wilds on the reels.
Game Options and How to Play
The game runs like a normal slot with the added features of bonus games. Players can increase the bet amount as he likes. The best advice for playing the game is to aim for the bonus rounds, and start with lower overall bets to maximize rounds. However, it’s also important to know that the bonus rounds are played with the same coin values as the betting round.
The game features several menu options which can be accessed through the main window, such as the pay tables that can be found under Info. Main one is the familiar wrench icon at the upper right hand corner. Through this option you can access following settings:
- History, showing your real money round history
- General settings
- Game settings
- Audio settings
It’s also possible to mute the slots from the audio button, though this is unnecessary as the music and sounds fit the game well. Other options are Turbo Game, where the animations and sounds are disabled for faster spins and Auto play feature, which re-spins the game for player specified rounds. The game is a must try for everyone who has seen the movie, and everyone should have seen the movie.
