This Is Spinal Tap! The most famous spoof rock band in history takes its bow on our reels thanks to Blueprint Gaming, a studio that has already pulled off some comedy great mobile slot releases like Ted and The Naked Gun. Now, it’s time to rock. David St. Hubbins, Nigel Tufnel, Derek Smalls and Mick Shrimpton all appear as our high-paying symbols, posing in various modes of sheer rock glee. They are joined by heavy metalised Jacks through Aces and the Spinal Tap game logo, our top paying symbol that sees us bag 500 times our Way Win bet for a seven-of-a-kind win. Each winning combination is accompanied by a rocking blast of an electric guitar that was the band’s trademark.
A hard rock Skull Wild, complete with devil’s horns, fire and roses substitutes for all symbols except Bonus Scatters. At any point we can opt to turn the dial right up to 11 by activating Rock Mode. It costs x50 our bet, but it gives us an Access All Areas pass to a series of modifiers. We are then treated to a spinning record – a clever pastiche of NetEnt’s award-winning Guns N Roses mobile slot game – introduced and accompanied by over-exaggerated levels of pyrotechnics and face-melting guitar solos. Just how Spinal Tap would have liked it.
The Rock Mode Record spins and stops on a prize modifier, but if we aren’t happy with the show we can opt to gamble on another spin of the Record. We can gamble only once, though, so we’d better be sure we want to spin a second time. The reels stretch from five to seven, delivering the 2,187 the game promises. The modifiers awarded will be either:
Now we have a ladder to climb, selecting records to reveal symbols of seven bonus games. We aim our rock goggles on:
With a string of super successful and innovative movie adaptations mobile slots games under its belt, surely no studio is better placed to release a slot based on an English spoof rock band than tongue-in-cheek English slots house, Blueprint Gaming. The sheer myriad of bonus features is as Wild as any gig that Spinal Tap could concoct, while the well-placed guitar riffs and solos and the over-egged pyrotechnics send-up the genre perfectly. And also note the way everything goes right up to 11. Class.
