Fans of the film and slot lovers alike will enjoy this high-speed adventure!
Pilot Your Jet to ‘Cash in’ Above the Clouds
Top Gun is a 3-row, 5-reel, Win 243 Ways, online video slot set high above the clouds. Main characters from the famous 1980s film starring Tom Cruise are featured as slot symbols including: Iceman, Stinger, Charlie, Jester and Goose. Oddly, the star of the film is absent (Maverick a.k.a. Tom Cruise) which may come as a disappointment to fans of the film.
This online slot uses hit singles from Top Gun’s soundtrack including “Take My Breath Away” and “Danger Zone” recorded by Elyton Productions. There are minor symbol animations on wins as well as a larger animated fighter jet sequence that appears during the Dogfight Wilds Feature. While the graphics are rather flat, the slot incorporates the overall look of the film which fans will surely appreciate.
Like many Playtech slots, Top Gun shows cash values for Bet/Line, Total Bet and Win beneath the reels at the bottom of the slot screen. To select a Total Cash Bet ranging from 25p – £250 at SlotsMillion, players must choose a Bet/Line ranging from 1p – £10. The Paytable lists pays in coin values, and they remain fixed despite changes in the Bet/Line. Top Gun auto-calculates all cash wins by multiplying the coin pay by the Bet/Line.
Top Gun has 13 symbols loaded with characters from the film. There are 2 special symbols including a Dogfight Wild and Fighter Jet Scatter. The Wild can substitute for any regular symbol and can form its own winning combination of 5 of a kind. The Scatter is involved in triggering Free Games and does not award any pays. There are 11 regular symbols with 5 high-paying character symbols, 2 midrange film prop symbols and 4 low-paying card symbols. Listed in order of highest to lowest value, they include: Charlie, Iceman, Goose, Jester, Stinger, Leather Jacket, Aviator Sunglasses, Ace, King, Queen and Jack.
Top Gun’s gameplay is left to right starting with reel 1. Players only need to get 3+ regular symbols to form a winning combination (or 5+ Wilds). This is a win 243 ways online video slot providing ample opportunity to pad the bankroll. To profit along a single payline, get 3+ of Goose – Charlie, 4+ Aviator Sunglasses – Charlie or get 5+ of any symbol (except the Scatter).
The highest paying regular slot symbol is Charlie which shows a value of (1000, 250, 100) giving Top Gun the potential to award up to 40x the Total Bet along a single payline. The Wild symbol is the highest value symbol of the slot awarding 1500 coins for a 5 of a kind match giving this online slot the potential to award up to 60x the Total Bet along a single payline. The Dogfight Wilds Feature gives Top Gun the potential to award up to 15 Wilds to the reels for a maximum payout of 364,500 coins.
Top Gun offers 5 Autoplay options: 10, 25, 50 or 99 consecutive spins may be chosen. There is also the option to set Autoplay to stop when a Feature is won. Autoplay can be hurried along by pressing the larger ‘stop’ button. Press the smaller ‘stop’ button to end Autoplay altogether. Most Playtech slots offer Game Settings which include: adjust volume of both sound effects and music, view game history and toggle Turbo Play on/off to increase game speed.

Rely on Your Wing Man to Blast Cash Out of the Sky
Apart from being based on a classic film that’s popular worldwide, this Playtech slot design, while adequate, fails to impress simply recycling Playson’s tried-and-true recipe for success. Not to mention, while “Take My Breath Away” is a popular song, anything that is looped over and over gets old quickly. That said, fans of the film will enjoy the gameplay, character symbols, Feature animations and graphics.
While testing the demo version (100 spins), Top Gun produced 1.9 wins (including Dogfight Wilds) every 10 spins during Main gameplay. Of those wins, 53% were profitable overall. During the 100 spin test run, Danger Zone Free Games did not activate indicating a higher Hit Rate for that Feature. Wild Substitutions occurred 6 times over the course of the test run contributing to our overall profits.
