One of the largest producers of slots in Europe is undoubtedly the Gauselmann Group of the German Paul Gauselmann. Gauselmann is the great challenger from Novomatic. Gauselmann operates chains such as Merkur and Spielothek. Blueprint Gaming also belongs to the Gauselmann Group. Blueprint Gaming makes both online and land-based slots. Especially in countries like Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom, the slots from Blueprint Gaming are extremely popular like their Megaways Slots. Blueprint is both a developer of online slots and a so-called multi-provider aggregator. Similar to, for example, Scientific Games and NYX Gaming. You can play well-known slot machines from Merkur and Reel Time Gaming under the Blueprint Gaming label.
Blueprint Gaming: a rising star in the online casino landscape
Many companies naturally have the ambition to make things difficult for the established order. Many game providers suddenly pop up and then stop quickly. We do have faith in Blueprint Gaming. Especially since there is sufficient knowledge and financial power behind it in the form of the Gauselmann Group. In 2008, Gauselmann took over Blueprint Gaming. Blueprint Gaming works according to the “Shoemaker stay with you read” principle and bet fully on slot machines. All of Blueprint's slot machines have been approved by regulators in both Alderney and the UK. These are two serious supervisors for the supervision of online slots. One of the few trips to another game type than the slot machine is the Deal or no Deal Scratch card.
We also see Blueprint Gaming slots appear regularly under other labels, such as NYX Gaming, but also Playtech. But as already mentioned in the intro, also vice versa. The well-known Merkur slot machine Fishin ’Frenzy can also be found under the Blueprint label.
What kind of slots does Blueprint make?
Blueprint has tapped the rights of a number of well-known films. Crackers from the cinema are a great recipe for a successful slot machine. Just think of Jurassic Park from MicroGaming. Or Planet of the Apes from NetEnt. Playtech runs almost entirely on these types of film slots.
Blueprint also has a number. These slot machines stand out especially in the many bonus features that are built into it. For Blueprint, the many bonus features are a way to make a difference with the competition. Examples of slots based on well-known films are Ted, The Naked Gun, Casper (the ghost) and Thundercats.
The payout percentages of Blueprint slots are somewhat lower than, for example, those of NetEnt. Blueprint slots usually pay out 93 to 96 percent. That is on the low side for online slots. If Blueprint really wants to compete with NetEnt, at least one percentage point must be plotted there.
Blueprint Gaming progressive jackpot
In 2016, Blueprint Gaming launched the Jackpot King. Various Blueprint slots are linked to this progressive jackpot. Every time someone somewhere in the world plays on this slot machine, part of his or her bet disappears in the Jackpot King. Of course the player also has the chance to win every spin on this jackpot. The Jackpot King rises well over a million euros. Compared to the progressive jackpot slots from MicroGaming and NetEnt, for example, the jackpot slots from Blueprint Gaming are sometimes quite spectacular. Slots on which you can win this Jackpot King include The Naked Gun, Diamond Jackpots, Super Spinner, Top Cat and Count Duckula.
Another progressive jackpot from Blueprint is the Genie Jackpots Megaways. You can win this on the slot machine of the same name.
Where can you play Blueprint slots?
Blueprint is rapidly gaining ground in online casinos. About two years ago, you had to find the Blueprint slot machines with a magnifying glass, nowadays you can find them at almost every serious online casino. In 2017, Blueprint signed agreements with the Kindred Group (Unibet), Leo Vegas, GVC (Bwin) and Sky, among others. You can also play the slots at some online casinos running on the Skill-on-Net and White Hat Gaming platforms.
