Originally conceived as a spoof of heavy metal bands Spinal Tap is the branded slot designed by Blueprint Gaming which features Heavy Duty Wilds, Wild Sparks, Rock ‘N’ Roll Spins, Bands Odyssey and Bonus Picker. You can win up to x10,000 your bet!
Meet the Crew
On each side of the reels, you’ll find Harry Shearer and Michael Mckean playing their roles bathed in red and purple stage lights and white spotlights overlooking dozens of massive speakers. Amongst the symbols you’ll find are the Spinal Tap logo, Michael McKean, Harry Shearer, Christopher Guest and Rob Reimer playing their respective roles as metal performers. At the bottom, you’ll find four royal flush poker symbols. Rock ‘n’ roll music blares, and you can’t help but sense the intended humour of this over-the-top subject.
VIP Guest Access to Rock mode
Rock Mode is activated by clicking on the VIP guest pass which gets you backstage and gains you access to four modifiers through the spinning vinyl: Bands Odyssey, Heavy Duty Wilds, Wild Sparks or Rock ‘N’ Roll Spins. The feature doesn’t come cheap, however.
The bonus picker feature is triggered with three or more skull scatter symbols. Here you’re presented with several vinyl records which you must choose from to ultimately unlock one of seven bonus rounds. The top bonus round, called The World Tour, has a maximum win of x10,000. You can also win 11 free spins on 2,187 ways-to-win payline with sticky wilds which can be re-triggered with completely stacked sticky wilds in the Stonehenge Free Spins.
Encore Free Spins unlocks 11 free spins where all wilds are collected and added to an encore super spin. It is played on up to 2,187 ways-to-win paylines on seven reels. Stairway to Hell Free Spins offers 11 free spins on up to 2,187 ways-to-win paylines on seven reels, and you can collect extra spins with the speaker symbol. The Record Deal lets you select amongst records to reveal cash prizes or swap them out for another, or one of the bonus features previously mentioned.
You can select amongst three characters to upgrade your Feature Wheel and reveal your starting bonus. If you reach the centre, then you start with The World Tour Bonus.
