Spinal Tap Slot (Blueprint)

Spinal Tap Slot (Blueprint)Spinal Tap slot is a video game that was developed by Blueprint. This slot machine draws its inspiration from a 1984 cult movie, which was known as This Is Spinal Tap. This is a hilarious and fictional movie that showcases a British Metal band, which is on a tour in the US.

Given the success that was witnessed with the launch of that movie, I had to try my hand on the slot version, and here is my review:

Game Set-Up

Spinal Tap is based on a 5x3 reel setup, and up to 243 pay lines are available. The slot has some features that include 2 extra reels and as many as 2,187 ways to win. It’s a medium to high volatility game that has massive potential.

Betting and Prizes

The slot is quite accommodative, and with as low as $0.3, you will be able to spin the reels. The highest amount allowed on this slot is $ 1,500 per round.

I was impressed by Blueprint’s offer of a very high RTP of 96.92% in the base game. This is way above the average of what is offered by most modern slots.

With the help of VIP Guest Pass bonus feature, Spinal Tap slot can get to 97.02% in RTP.

Although the slot does not offer any progressive jackpot, it has the potential to deliver huge payouts.  The maximum win is 10,000x your bet (but this has been capped at $250,000).

Spinal Tap Features

Spinal Tap slot uses a lot of features that showcase its theme. Among them are 4 high-value symbols that are made of band members.

To get a win, you will be required to land between 3 to 7 similar symbols on adjacent reels. The highest paying symbol is the Spinal Tap Logo, and you will require 2 of these to get a reward.

Spinal Tap has another feature that comes in the form of the spin button. It has a design of a volume that you can crank up to get to the maximum level (11). This will enable you to get access to another feature known as the Rock Mode.

Bonus symbols are available as well, and upon landing 3+, you will be able to trigger the Bonus Picker feature.  

Double Platinum is a wheel of fortune that will enable you to win different features including multipliers.

While on a world tour, you will traverse the World with the help of a Tour Bonus feature.  The tour will take you to different continents that include Asia (Japan), Europe, and American. While at it, you will get an opportunity to win cash prizes.

By the end of this journey, there is a possibility to get the Big Money Bonus, which will also come with multipliers up to 10x.

Spinal Tap free spins are another great area, and the entire 3 free spins features can be triggered by a Bonus Picker feature. This is how they work:

Stairway to Hell Free Spins (11 free spins + an extra wild), Encore Free Spins (11 free spins+ wilds), and Stonehenge Free Spins (11 free spins+ special wild zones).

Theme and Design

Spinal Tap slot is a movie-themed slot machine. Blueprint has pulled this theme quite well, and the symbols used include a Spinal Tap, David St. Hubbins & Nigel Tufnell, Derek Smalls & Temporary Drummer, and low-value symbols that come in form of letters.


The game slot version of Spinal Tap is a great way to rekindle memories. It’s a nicely does slot machine, that offers value for both time and money.
