Born in the American south but with tendrils that spread across the Atlantic and into the UK and beyond, Blueprint Gaming have proved themselves to be a successful and diverse gaming manufacturer since they were born in 2001.
Although they have a reputation for some excellent land-based games, Blueprint also have an impressive range of online and mobile slots in their arsenal.
Let's take a closer look at why Blueprint are writing the - erm - blueprint for a successful online gaming developer in 2015.
A leading supplier of gaming machines and online slots, Blueprint are as adept at manufacturing touchscreen slots terminals for European casinos as they are slots games in their own right.
They began life in Atlanta, Georgia back in 2001, but the German Gauselmann Group (who also own Merkur Gaming) bought a 50% share 7 years later. With the new partnership with one of the most-respected manufacturers of gaming machines in Europe, Blueprint are able to offer products for the British and world markets.
The 'Vision Casino' and 'Vision Slant Top' series of machines feature 22" HD interactive touchscreens for casinos and pubs, so chances are you've spotted one of Blueprint/Gauselmann's games in a casino somewhere at some time.
As well as land-based machines, Blueprint also develop online and mobile slots. Although they can range from the AWP/Classic (Super Wild Bar X, Super Spins Bar X Gold) they have also brought out a range of decent 3D titles like Wish Upon a Jackpot and Zuma. Most Blueprint games are integrated into their partner Openbet's unique platform.
Although not huge, Blueprint's slots portfolio is pretty varied. Classic slots like Super Wild Bar X are likely to sit alongside more conventional 5-reel games like Alien Encounters, Amigos Gold and Bruce Lee.
But there's still an interesting selection of games that will appeal to British players.
Viz is inspired by the cult scatological comic from Newcastle and features many of the title's popular characters like Sid the Sexist and the Fat Slags.
On a similar comedy tip, Worms - based on the hugely popular video game - is packed with exciting features such as stacked Wilds and a Bonus Trail game.
Wish Upon a Jackpot is more akin to a slot you might find gracing the BetSoft or Sheriff portfolios. Based on fairytales, it has stacked Wilds, some attractive animated icons like Cinderella's castls and a frog prince, and three separate bonus features based on classic fairytales.
Rumpelstiltskin's Deal Maker features a 'Gamble'-type bonus, Rapunzel's Free Spins features potentially unlimited spins and a 2x-5x multiplier on wins, and a random 'Fairy Godmother' bonus that can award Wild reels and instant cash wins.
Whether you're into big branded slots like Casper or Worms, or simpler fare like Super Wild Bar X, there's bound to be something in the Blueprint roster for you.
