Gauselmann Group's UK-based game development studio Blueprint Gaming has launched a new online slot based on the classic 1980’s rock mockumentary This is Spinal Tap.

Through a licensing agreement with Studiocanal, band members David St Hubbins, Nigel Tufnel and Derek Smalls all feature in the 243 ways slot game, which includes strobing lights and detailed design of the band’s instruments and famous mullets.

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.

The game’s VIP pass allows players to gain access to the super bet feature and win up to 11 spins with multiple modifiers available.

“We’re rocking out with one of the greatest and funniest UK bands of all time in what is sure to be our loudest release yet,” said Jo Purvis, director of marketing and relationships at Blueprint Gaming. “This is Spinal Tap is a cult classic and we’re confident our adaptation of the film will appeal to the masses. David, Nigel and Derek all feature as we take it up to 11 for a deafening experience.”

Stephanie Kupperman, director of business development at Creative Licensing Corporation (CLC), which represents a large catalogue of classic films for worldwide licensing, added: “This game is extremely well executed and truthfully one of the most beautiful licensed games I’ve ever seen.

“The team at Blueprint Gaming has done a tremendous job of bringing this iconic film to life through high quality graphics, captivating sounds, and providing an exciting user experience. Well done to everyone involved in the development of this game.”
