The Best Blueprint Gaming Slots
Blueprint Gaming have long been a provider of some of the most unique, innovative, and playable slots in the industry, and at Bet UK we’re grateful to have them as a supplier. To that end, we’ve decided to write about some of the best Blueprint Gaming slots we have in our online casino collection, using various criteria. Generally, these are also some of the most played games we have, which means that they must be doing something right. After a brief moment to reflect on the - perhaps surprising - absence of Top Cat slot and Winstar, let’s move on to the six games that have made it onto our list.
Eye of Horus
We’ll kick off with Eye of Horus, an Egyptian-themed online casino game that first appeared in September 2016. Bearing all the hallmarks of a land-based casino slot, it acts as a good intermediary for those players who have recently moved their play to the online world. The ten numbers on either side of the reels are just one of the many features that make this game easy to get to grips with, while the graphics are both stunning and fully immersive. The main focus for players will be on trying to trigger the Free Games bonus. During this round, Expanding Wilds can upgrade the standard symbols, as well as awarding further Free Games. Eye of Horus is so popular that late November 2019 saw an upgrade of sorts released by Blueprint, in the form of Eye of Horus Megaways, which features all the features of the original, but adds in up to 117,649 ways to win.
Next up on the list we cast our rod into the world of Fishin’ Frenzy. Released in October 2017, the layout of this slot bears more than a small resemblance to Eye of Horus. Again, the game’s paylines are helpfully laid out on either side of the reels, while the options to set a wager value, autoplay total, and to spin the reels are largely the same. One key difference, beyond the nautical theme, is that there are a range of various-sized fish that are worth instant win values. If any of these land on the reels at the same time as a Fisherman during the Free Games bonus round, he’ll scoop them all up and award the value as one payout. As if that weren’t enough, April 2019 saw the release of a sequel, Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways, which offers up to 117,649 ways to win as well as Cascading Reels.
Further back in time than the above, 2015 saw Genie Jackpots hit the online casino industry, and it’s become something of a phenomenon. The game’s symbols include cutlasses, turbans, and lamps, while the bonus rounds and modifiers are innovative and engaging, with a wide variety of prizes on offer. The Mystery Win Bonus can award up to 100x wins, while the unique Magic Carpet Bonus can pay out up to 1000x your bet if you’re lucky enough to uncover the right symbols. That said, those values pale in comparison to the progressive jackpots available through Blueprint’s patented Jackpot King system. There is a sequel to this game at Bet UK, although unlike the above games it’s not a Megaways version. Instead, Genie Jackpots Cave of Wonders sees a pub fruit layout applied to the game, with various bonus trails and additional features that can be unlocked, with impressive jackpots up for grabs in the Big Money Bonus.
If you were growing up in the 1980s, or if you’re a fan of the Steven Spielberg film, The Goonies slot could be worth a look. Released in October 2018, the game perfectly incorporates the source material, while also ensuring that it is immersive even for those that are new to the cult film. There are as many as six modifiers to be uncovered in the base game, with Mikey, Mouth, Chunk, Data, Sloth, and One-Eyed Willy offering anything from wilds to colossal symbols. Elsewhere, there’s an abundance of bonus rounds to be triggered, with some awarding instant cash prizes, and others awarding Free Spins. A year after the original was released, Blueprint provided us with a sequel that features progressive jackpots, as The Goonies Jackpot King arrived. It maintains all of the features that made the first game so popular, while also introducing some astronomical winning potential. The Goonies is by no means Blueprint’s first foray into the world of movies, as we also have Mars Attacks slot available to play on all devices at Bet UK.
On the subject of slots based on movies, we couldn’t ignore one from the creators of the Family Guy TV show. March 2017 saw Blueprint release Ted slot, based on the 2012 film of the same name. Much like the silver screen release, Ted pushed the boundaries of what was acceptable content for an online slot. Essentially, he’s foul-mouthed and anarchic, but he also brings a host of bonus features along with him, so we’ll let him off with a caution. Much like The Goonies, Ted also includes a wide variety of base game modifiers, as well as several bonus rounds. The Big Money Bonus is the best of the bunch, and you can gamble your way to it, as well as triggering it outright, with instant prizes on offer. There are two sequels of note; Ted Jackpot King attaches the progressive jackpot feature, while Ted Pub Fruit Series sees a similar layout to Genie Jackpots Cave of Wonders and traditional pub fruit machines.
Wish Upon A Jackpot
Our final entry, Wish Upon a Jackpot, was one of the first online slots to be released in 2013, and as such is the earliest release in our list. Whether we’ve saved the best until last or not is up to you, but the game is full of unique bonus features, all based around classic fairy tales. The Fairy Godmother, Rumpelstiltskin, Jack of the Beanstalk variety, Rapunzel, and the Three Little Pigs are the main characters to look out for, with Pinocchio, the Gingerbread Man, and Puss In Boots in cameo roles. This casino game features two Free Spins bonus rounds, as well as offering prizes of up to 1,000x your stake, all while offering good graphics and a harp-led soundtrack. Not quite a sequel, but a similarly named title, Wish Upon a Leprechaun is also available to play, in addition to its sequel, Wish Upon a Leprechaun Megaways.
Bet UK’s Final Thoughts
Those that are new to the world of online casino games may be surprised to find that Deal or No Deal Megaways didn’t make our list, while those that are experienced Jackpot King aficionados may be shaking their heads at the lack of Worms Reloaded. Both of those are valued opinions, but they’re also testament to the fact that narrowing down the best Blueprint Gaming slots to six is a difficult and controversial task. They’ve been fantastic contributors to the world of online slots, and Bet UK in particular, and we hope they continue to be for some time yet. Beavis and Butthead slot and Cop the Lot are just two more we’d like to mention, but if you’re after something a little different then please feel free to explore our online betting markets.
