Jimi Hendrix slot game is from NetEnt which has 20 fixed pay-lines and 5 reels. Released in 2016, the game was inspired by the iconic 60s rock star and is part of the Netent Rocks Trilogy that also includes Guns N’Roses & Motorhead. Fans of Hendrix and the swinging sixties will absolutely love this game, provided they like playing online casino slots as well.
Jimi Hendrix was a guitarist, singer and songwriter who made his name during the tumult of the 1960s. Although his light didn’t burn for very long, he made a huge impression on the music industry, becoming one of the most acclaimed musicians of his time. In tribute, NetEnt have come up with an online casino game to exploit, we mean, celebrate his memory. Rock on!PLAY NOW
The artwork created for the Jimi Hendrix online slot comprises an initially barren desert background that’s coloured pink. This is fronted by a white guitar-like box containing the reels. At first glance, there’s nothing remotely psychedelic about the game’s appearance, contrary to reports. The reel symbols consist of simplistic cartoonish renderings of vinyl records, flowers, the CND logo as well as a rather toothsome, sceptical-looking Jimi.
But sometimes the best trip takes a while to kick in (so we’ve heard). And so it goes with this particular slot which boasts some of the best animations we’ve come across. While these don’t exactly open up the doors of perception, they certainly take the game to a whole new plain, brother. Spinning guitars, climbing plant tendrils, and flowers that bloom across the reels, are a few examples of how the game comes alive when bonus features are activated.
There are six bonuses of which two can be found in the base game and four in the Pick and Click feature. The Purple Haze bonus is activated when the symbol of a guitar-wielding Jimi Hendrix lands on the first reel. This causes the play-card symbols to transform into Wilds for that particular spin.
The Red Guitar Re-Spin is the other base game bonus feature which becomes active when four red guitar symbols land on the reels. These trigger re-spins which are only repeated if the red-guitar lands on the reels again.
The Pick and Click feature represents the Jimi Hendrix Bonus Round and becomes active when 3 scatter symbols appear on reels 3, 4, and 5. Once triggered, a separate game begins. This requires players to click on a loudspeaker which reveals 4 varieties of symbols. When three of these symbols are collected, a related prize is awarded. There are:
Coin Win Symbol – multiplies the initial bet by x8 or x30
Crosstown Traffic Symbol – Free Spins
Purple Haze Symbol – Free Spins
Little Wing Symbol – Free Spins
The three free spins bonuses are structured like so:
Crosstown Traffic Free Spins – 6 free spins are awarded Wild symbols landing on different reels for each spin
Purple Haze– 6 – 12 free spins are awarded for landing the purple guitar symbol, which transforms 10, J, Q, and As into Wilds
Little Wing Free Spins – Landing three of these results in 6 – 12 free spins as well as 3 – 5 overlay Wilds that appear randomly on the reels for every spin
Jimi Hendrix no deposit, free spins play is offered by the vast majority of major online casinos. However, as required by the regulators, free Jimi Hendrix slots, as with all casino games, must operate exactly like the paid version and must not be deceptive about the frequency or size of the pay-outs.
As with many NetEnt slot games, the Jim Hendrix game was launched with considerable fanfare. And despite being slightly underwhelmed by the visuals at the start, the animations really got our attention as did the game’s soundtrack. However, we suggest playing the Jimi Hendrix mobile version which looks even better.
As far as gameplay is concerned, the Purple Haze Free Spins feature can be very rewarding, thanks to the 5 wilds it triggers for every spin. The same is true of the Crosstown Traffic Free Spins bonus and the 2 wild symbols that can appear. To conclude then, the Jimi Hendrix slot offers balanced gameplay and a raft of bonus features that should keep things interesting for some time.
