It is already 30 years since Tom Cruise burst onto the big screen with the action drama movie, Top Gun. The fighter-pilot themed movie became something of an icon in mainstream culture. It is unsurprising then that the online casino software provider, Playtech, believed that a slot game based on Top Gun would thrill its players.
This week, Playtech announced the release of Top Gun video slot through an official licensing deal with Paramount Pictures. The new game has been launched to coincide with the 30th year anniversary of Top Gun's release, and promises to bring alive the magic, action and pulsating excitement experienced on the Big Screen.
The COO of Playtech, Shimon Akad said about the release: "This iconic movie was the ideal choice for a premium branded game and is sure to be a hit for all our casino licensees and their players across all channels and devices, delivering, as we do with every title and every product, the ultimate gaming experience."

All the film's famous characters are presented on the video slot's reels, including Tom Cruise's character, Pete 'Maverick' Mitchell, and 'Goose', his wingman. Their powerful F-14 Tomcat fighter jet whizzes across the 2-4-3 ways game's reels, bringing with it plenty of bonus features and the chance to win big.
Bonus features include multiple free spins, 'Dog Fight Wilds' where the Tomcat locks, loads and fires missiles into the reels, and plenty more.

Top Gun: The Movie
Directed by Tony Scott and produced by Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer, Top Gun cost $15 million to make and bagged 24 times that amount in the box office.
A sequel to the movie is currently in development, with Cruise recently saying that he "would like to fly those jets again."
