Top Gun really does a great job of using its movie license. It starts already with the intro screen, which plays the main tune of the movie - the notorious Take my breath away. But then there’s dozens of other details that remind you of what you liked about the movie. You’ll find all your favorite characters, the soundtrack, jets passing by every once in a while - and you'll soon be thinking about how good this retro game is.
All of this in spite of it being a classic 5-reel, 3-row slot machine without standard lines. Indeed, lines are replaced by 243 ways of winning a prize. It's not rocket science, not at all. All you need to do is chain winning symbols from the left reel to the right one.
Aim for your bonus
In order to ensure that winning is not just about routinely spinning the reels, Playtech added interesting bonuses into game, all of which also make use of the jet-fuelled theme.
The first is a minigame called Dogfight Wilds, which activates randomly. An F-14 jet appears and starts shooting at the gaming field. Each hit symbol immediately transforms into a Wild symbol, which operates as a standard wildcard and replaces missing symbols in winning combinations. The number of symbols hit is random - the aircraft could potentially hit all 15 symbols.
Jets will also play a role in the second bonus minigame. That one is called Danger Zone Free Games. As the name suggests, if you get three special Scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5, you can look forward to 8 free spins. But that’s not all. During these free spins, an improved version of Dogfight Wilds may appear randomly. This time, the pilot actually aims at the symbols and shoots at them with increased accuracy. Once again, how many shots hit is just a matter of luck. But it’s still a fun addition. The only thing we didn’t like about these bonuses is that each minigame is a bit too slow. It breaks the rhythm of the game and became a bit tedious after a few rounds. This was especially true when a jet hits several symbols, always one by one.

However, aside from the single reservation mentioned above, there’s nothing to complain about. This is what online slot machines with a movie license should look like. The authors used it to the fullest, and it is easy to see that the development of this slot machine was certainly not a cheap affair. This has numerous advantages for players, and it would be a pity if you decided not to give TOP GUN at least a short try. Especially since you can do so completely free of charge online.
