This Is Spinal Tap is the fictional (and very funny) account of the adventures of a British rock band touring the United States in the early 1980s; if you haven’t seen it then it’s time to do so but in the meantime check out this online slot from Blueprint Gaming themed on the group – it’s called Spinal Tap and you can read all about it below.
Spinal Tap is a five reel slot with three rows and a potential 2187 paylines but 243 in the base game; rock music accompanies your gameplay as the band play in some brightly lit auditorium packed with fans.
The high value symbols include the Spinal Tap logo, the four band members David St. Hubbins, Nigel Tufnell, Derek Smalls and one of the temporary drummers (who kept dying in odd circumstances); J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
The wild is a green plectrum which will replace all others to help form winning combos except for the horned skull bonus symbol.
