This Is Spinal Tap will be celebrated for years to come. The spoof documentary charting the trials and tribulations of a British rock band as they toured the US back in the day, it’s still commonly referenced and enjoyed today, by both comedy fans and musicians alike. Blueprint Gaming took the concept a stage further, in creating the Spinal Tap slot themed around the band and their (mis)adventures.
As you’d expect from a Spinal Tap slot, the game is soundtracked by rock music reminiscent of 80s hair metal. The graphics are impressive and instantly recognisable in parts to fans of the original, thanks to appearances from band members like Derek Smalls, Nigel Tufnell and David St. Hubbins. There’s also the Spinal Tap logo, as well as a green plectrum symbol which can appear from time to time.
The aim of the game is to find matching symbols across any of the paylines. Set across 5 reels, there are 243 paylines on the board in the base game – essentially ‘all ways’ wins, for any combination on the board. The total number of paylines increases up to a maximum of 2187 as the game progresses beyond the base reels, with the various bonus features allowing players to compete on reels with these many more paylines in play.
Aside from these symbols, which largely form the higher paying combinations, there are also several high card symbols on the board. These occupy the lower portion of the paytable, but still pay out from 5x for a combination of 3 Js or Qs.
The betting action ranges from £0.40 per spin right up to £400.00 for more serious players. When you factor in the jackpot prize of 500x, it’s clear to see how this can quickly add up into a serious prize amount.
But this slot isn’t just a good laugh – it also benefits from a very high RTP, kicking off at 96.92%, and rising to 97.02%, with the range coming as a result of the change in paylines occuring in the bonus rounds. Whichever way you cut it, this is a high RTP, which benefits players over other, lower paying games.
The green plectrum is the game’s wild symbol, and one that you want to see appearing more often than not. This symbols substitutes in place of any other, with the exception of the bonus symbol. Any lines that run through a wild that can be made into a combination are rounded up to your benefit, and the same applies to any combinations that can be extended by one symbol adjacent to a wild.
The bonus symbol is the horned skull, and you need to land three or more times to get a shot at the pick-me bonus feature. How very rock n’ roll.
Bonuses & Jackpots
When you land three or more bonus symbols, you’re in line for a pick of a golden vinyl record. Depending on which you choose, there are several prize games that can be awarded to you. The World Tour offers the chance to collect multipliers as you tour through the world, in a mini-game that fans of Spinal Tap will instantly love. Stonehenge offers the chance to play on an alternative reel set, with freezing wilds and the full 2187 paylines in play.
Several other bonus features offering 11 free spins and the alternative reel set help keep things interesting, and you’d need to land the bonus feature a number of times to get through them all. There’s also Record Deal, Don’t Fret It and Double Platinum, all of which offer players the chance to pick for some tasty in-game prizes.
There’s also the option to take on the VIP Guest Pass side bet, for 50x your stake. This allows you to play directly on the 2187 paylines reel set, with some additional wild and multiplier features thrown in for good measure.
