Top Dawg$ slot
The hip-hop-themed Top Dawg$ slot machine from Relax Gaming Studios has a slight sense of deja vu. Right after Nolimit City hit players with a rap sensation (East Coast vs West Coast), the Top Dawg game appeared. Aside from the theme, which both games did well to reveal, the features you'll encounter in Top Dawg$ have nothing in common with East Coast vs West Coast xWays, although they aren't exactly new mechanics. Nevertheless, while parts of Top Dawg$ are directly related to the East Coast, Relax Gaming has put them together.
Dust-covered roads surrounded by palm trees of presumably South Central Los Angeles are where Top Dawg$ plays out. The downtown high-rises can be discerned in the distance through a translucent gaming grid with five reels and 15 paylines as jets drift lazily across a purple sky filled with clouds. You can practically smell the streets of Los Angeles and the road dust rising from the screen as you play. All this is accompanied by a soundtrack reminiscent of the rhythms of the late 80s and early 90s.

Top Dawg$ slot machine review
The video slot is supported on any device, and the stakes range from $0.10 to $40 per spin. The slot machine's high volatility adds to the quiet gameplay with constant wins and spins, saving the best moments for exciting bonus play. The default fixed RTP is 96.10%, but it goes up to 96.71% when the bonus is buyed.
In a relatively simple game in terms of rules, winning combinations of three to five of the same symbols are possible on 15 fixed paylines. Among the symbols are members of the royal family from J to A, executed in graffiti style. Characters with dogs are premium symbols, and lines of five such symbols pay 15 to 30 times your bet. Five wild symbols multiply your bet by 30 times.
Top Dawg$ doesn't have as many features as you'd like, and, even those that are there aren't very original. Nevertheless, they can certainly be profitable. The base game is broken down into frequent mystery reps, while the best winnings are possible during the Dead or Alive-style free spins round. Mystery spins are triggered when a question mark symbol appears on the last reel. Repeat spins continue until new mystery symbols appear, then they all show the same symbol.
The purple car is a scatter symbol. 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols trigger 8, 10 or 12 free spins. During the free spins, when the wild symbols fall, they become sticky and are fixed in place. The jokers also have multipliers starting at x1. When scatters fall, they add +1 to the free spins and increase the win multiplier for all sticky jokers by 1 and can reach x7. Sticky jokers multiply each other if they are present on the same winning line, giving the highest multiplier on line x16 807.
The game looks good, and the soundtrack even better, making Top Dawg$ Cracked Pavement Street a real entertainment venue. The gameplay side is also positive, though not super original. Secret respins have become commonplace. They usually do not bring anything serious, as well as the usual winnings on the lines. At the same time, the main strength of the mechanics of the slot machine is free spins. Technically, it is possible to get from re-spins up to x450, provided that the entire playing field is filled with the most expensive symbol - a bulldog.
If you've played a game like Dead or Alive 2, you'll have an idea of how good free spins with sticky wild symbols can be. Consider also how multipliers work, multiplying each other. You'll get BIG WINS on every spin - up to a maximum win of 25,000x.
