Jimi Hendrix Slot Game from NetEnt
Our readers may well remember our coverage of NetEnt’s Guns n’ Roses online slot and we said at the time that the developer’s plans indicated that the game would be the first of several musical releases coming in 2016. They have kept their word and the latest in the series is now upon us, coming in the form of Jimi Hendrix. If Guns n’ Roses was designed to bring live video, photorealistic graphics and other aesthetic treats to players, then this game has gone completely in the opposite direction. It makes use of a surreal, cartoon style to reflect the culture of the time period and the music, and it is sure to find fans not only among Hendrix lovers but also slots players alike.
Base Game Bonuses on Jimi Hendrix
The developer rarely holds back on the features when branded games are involved and the bonuses start coming thick and fast within the base game. Landing a Purple Haze symbol on the first reel will see that icon, along with all of the playing card symbols on the board at the time, becoming wild before the win is calculated. It is also possible to land red guitar symbols on the board. Hitting four at once will see a prize being paid and a respin awarded while those guitars remain in place. If another red guitar lands then the respins will keep on coming, allowing players to build up a hefty prize total all from a single spin.
The Pick and Click Feature
The main feature on Jimi Hendrix is the Pick and Click bonus, although there is more to it than simply picking a win. When players land three or more of the symbol displaying Jimi and his white guitar, they will be taken to a screen where they can keep on picking until they match three of the same symbols. These symbols correspond to different bonus rounds. It could be a coin win worth between eight and thirty times the total bet, or Crosstown Traffic Free Spins where six free games are awarded, complete with one or two guaranteed wild reels. The Purple Haze free spins see players receiving between six and twelve free games with all playing card symbols being wild throughout, and the Little Wing free games bonus sees between six and twelve spins being awarded once again, this time with between three and five wild cards randomly being added to the board prior to each spin.
If you’re after visuals and theatrics then Jimi Hendrix may feel like a bit of a step down from Guns n’ Roses. However, if you’re after something a little more peaceful but no less feature packed then Jimi Hendrix could be just what you’re looking for. The good news is that you can try both games for free here at Games Mania, with Jimi Hendrix being found right back up at the top of this review.
