"It's all about the games”, said the Blueprint Gaming team and went on to prove it by releasing one fun and memorable title after another. This UK-based game developer was established in 2001 and in 2008 became part of the renowned Gauselmann Group - a German family-owned company that develops amusement and gaming machines, operates arcade chain MERKUR Casino, and is active in sports betting, online gaming and casinos.
The Gauselmann acquisition has proven to be a real game-changer, enabling a small software company to start competing with industry giants. They are able to do so thanks to great-looking games with appealing features available for online play on both desktop and mobile devices. The company’s online portfolio consists primarily of slot games so it seems they decided to focus on what they do best rather than enter additional categories and potentially compromise on quality. They did, however, partner with IWG in order to transform their slots into instant win games. It’s worth noting that the developer has also planted over 100,000 land-based terminals across the UK, Italy and Germany.
Blueprint Gaming is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission as well as the Malta Gaming Authority and the Alderney Gambling Commission. All of its games are audited by independent third parties so you can be sure they consistently deliver random outcomes.
Blueprint Gaming may have a much smaller portfolio than industry leaders but can easily match NetEnt and Microgaming products in terms of quality. In addition to many non-branded slots with a variety of popular and unique themes, the developer has created licensed titles based on big TV and movie franchises, such as Casper’s Mystery Mirror, The Naked Gun, The Goonies, Inspector Gadget, Austin Powers and Ted. The team also finds inspiration in other non-casino games like Worms and Plants vs Zombies. Blueprint Gaming has recently started creating exclusive slots one can play at a single online casino and nowhere else. In July 2019, members of Leo Vegas Casino thus got the unique privilege to spin the reels of LeoVegas Megaways.
Wish Upon A Jackpot – combines all of our favourite fairy tales into one exquisitely-designed, bonus-packed video slot with 5 reels and 20 paylines. Fairy Godmother Spin can trigger randomly and offer you to pick a magic orb to reveal Pinocchio Wilds, Wild Reels, Puss In Boots Wilds, Bonus, or Fairy Win Spin. If you manage to trigger the Fairytale Bonus, you’ll do some more picking & clicking to win 3 Little Pigs Free Spins with extra Wilds, Rapunzel Free Spins with multipliers, a chance to enter Jack and the Beanstalk board game or an opportunity to negotiate in Rumpelstiltskin’s Deal Maker Bonus.
Worms Reloaded – is a witty spinoff from a popular video game. If the Worms Grenade in the logo explodes, it will trigger one of 4 special features executed in a fun and unique manner. Holy Hand Grenade adds bonus symbols, Banana Bomb Wilds plants potentially sticky Wild icons, Concrete Donkey Wilds creates Wild reels and Teleport Mayhem uses teleporter to make symbols disappear and reappear in a winning order. With a specified symbol combination one can also activate one of 4 Knockout Bonus rounds – pick & click Battle Ground Bonus, interactive Jet Pack Bonus split into 2 stages, Blitz Blast Free Spins with multipliers, or Super Sheep Free Spins with Super Sheep Wild symbols added to the reels only to be shot down by the Worm. This super-fun game also features the Jackpot King Deluxe Bonus.
The Pig Wizard – is a fun take on Harry Potter paying over 5 reels and 20 paylines. The Pig Wizard randomly casts a spell to turn up to 4 reels Wild while bonus icons on reels 1, 3 and 5 award Magical Map Bonus which prompts the player to select a Bonus Room and reveal one of 4 bonus games - Magic Mirror Free Spins, the Trail of Magic, Squeal or No Squeal or Bonus Mystery Win. During Free Spins, Mystery Mirror picks a symbol which is revealed in every mirror in view, in Trail of Magic you’ll be rolling the dice to move around the board and pick up multipliers, potions and crystal balls, while Squeal or No Squeal bonus round invites the player to select a book and reveal a cash prize. Jackpot King Deluxe Bonus is activated by landing 5 overlay symbols on reels 1 to 5. You’ll need to spin reels to collect crowns and hopefully enter tombola-style Wheel King feature for a chance to win a progressive pot.
King Kong Cash – is another entertaining title with about zillion special features. It plays with the usual set-up - 5x3 game area with 20 paylines. Sleepy Kong can wake up on any spin and activate one of five monkey modifiers – Banana Canon Wilds, Golden Barrel Super Spin, Bonus Boost, Kong Respin or King Kong Streak, all aimed to make you win or activate the bonus. Three or more Kong symbols trigger King Kong Bonus which sends you climbing up the ladder to win 1 out of 5 bonuses. Barrel Blast pick & match and King Kong Trail retro-style board game enable players to increase bet multiplier. During Empire Free Spins, they’ll be collecting Golden Monkeys to advance to the next reel set and win additional spins. Golden Kong Free Spins are played on a 5x4 reel area with 40 paylines, enabling accumulation of Wild symbols which at the end award a series of Wild Spins.
Gods Of Olympus Megaways – is one of the developer’s latest releases that uses unique Megaways mechanic under licence from Big Time Gaming. The random reel modifier feature opens up more winning opportunities, offering you as many as 15,625 ways to win. The 6x5 reel area displays symbols occupying single or multiple positions, and thanks to the gods of ancient Greece - Ares, Athena, Poseidon and Zeus, players can look forward to plenty of bonus rounds that will keep them gripped and entertained. Mighty Zeus can randomly appear to award one of five modifiers - Wild Thunder adding up to 10 Wild multipliers, Colossal Thunder transforming up to 6 reels into a Colossal Reel, Mystery Thunder adding mystery symbols, Bonus Thunder adding bonus icons, and Respin Thunder holding winning symbols in place and re-spinning all other. Scatters will give players the choice of godly artefacts to reveal one of four free game rounds – Colossal, Wild Storm, Mighty Wild or Rise Of Olympus Free Spins.
The developer’s portfolio is so diversified in terms of themes, design, mechanism and features that it’s hard to name specific hallmarks. They come up with original themes but also source inspiration from popular movies, arcade and video games. A good many of Blueprint Gaming slots incorporate transforming symbols, stacked icons and a choice of bonus rounds though you’ll also find those with super-simple gameplay yet just as engaging and entertaining. Quite a few present innovative ideas and many demonstrate a good sense of humour. All of the developer’s products feature crisp, eye-catching graphics and excellent audio effects.
More than 250 online casinos were happy to include Blueprint Gaming products into the offering owing to their high quality and the entertainment value. Videoslots and SlotsMillion both stock most of the developer’s games and, by allowing players to filter their catalogues by provider, make them super-easy to find. Feel free to give them a try with fun credits but real money has to be invested to profit from their multiple special features.
