Developer pays tribute to legendary band with its own themed slot
UK-based game studio Blueprint Gaming has released its latest online slot titled This is Spinal Tap with a theme inspired by the classic 1980’s rock mockumentary.
Under licence from Studiocanal, band members David St. Hubbins, Nigel Tufnel and Derek Smalls all feature in this 243 ways-to-win game.
The crowd goes wild when the Rock Mode is triggered as the grid expands to 7 reels wide and becomes a 2187 ways game. The spinning turntable bonus round provides players with the chance to win additional wilds determined by where the needle stops on the record.
In the game’s VIP pass, rockers can gain access to the super bet feature and win up to 11 spins with multiple modifiers available.
Th new game is replete with high-quality graphics, strobing lights and detailed design of the band’s instruments and famous mullets, putting the player right on the front row.

Stephanie Kupperman, director of business development at Creative Licensing Corporation (CLC), said: “This game is extremely well executed and truthfully one of the most beautiful licensed games I’ve ever seen.
