Omni-channel game takes your breath away with original footage and music from the classic 1986 action adventure film
London: November 10th 2015 – Playtech has launched a supersonic, premium branded, and officially licensed slot game themed on the iconic action classic Top Gun.
Launched simultaneously across all desktop and mobile devices, the game will take your breath away with its high-speed action and incredible bonus rounds that feature the famous F-14 Tomcat fighter jet flown in the film by Tom Cruise’s character, Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell, and his wingman ‘Goose’.
The 2-4-3 ways game feels the need for speed with a series of pulsating features including multiple free spins alongside original movie action clips, and ‘Dog Fight Wilds’ which, once activated, see the F-14 lock, load and fire missiles into the reels unveiling a barrage of Top Gun win symbols.
The timing of the launch could not be better with the classic film celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2016 and Cruise saying earlier this year that he “would like to fly those jets again” in a sequel currently being written.
Playtech offers the industry’s most extensive portfolio of best-performing omni-channel casino content, delivering more than 500 of the most innovative and exhilarating titles across all channels, platforms and devices.
