|What’s Hot||What’s Not|
Ooh, Foxy Lady! Sorry we just had to do it. Now that’s out of the way, the time has finally come to celebrate Jimi Hendrix’ foray into the world of online slot machines. Jimi Hendrix, NetEnts second video slot from the NetEnt Rocks series, follows the roaring success of the outstanding and now infamous Guns N Roses slot. This new slot is not only a recommendation for fans of legendary rock stars, but for all the players who love slots with amazing graphics, a great soundtrack and most important to many, games that are packed with all kinds of cool bonus features.
Rock out with Jimi Hendrix and spin the reels until the winning combinations emerges from the purple haze, or switch to auto spin and listen to Jimi’s godlike guitar solos as you enjoy a Jack Daniels and a Marlboro. If you’re a fan of free spins and bonus rounds, then this is definitely a slot that should have your immediate attention as there are many special features waiting to be hit on this particular NetEnt slot game.
Let's start with the most striking feature of the machine, it’s graphics and animations. Jimi Hendrix’ image and persona is represented in comic book styling throughout. This first impression is deceptive because once the wheels are spinning and the first winning combinations are hit, this slot machine explodes into huge trippy 3D animations and floral hippy effects. In conjunction with the psychedelic colors, Jimi Hendrix has to be one of the most atmospheric and immersive online slots we have played recently.
Jimi Hendrix is a down to earth slot machine despite the airy staging. Here NetEnt has given players the very familiar format of 3 rows, 5 reels and 20 paylines. Coin values can be between 0.01 and 1 plus you can bet up to 10 coins simultaneously on one of the 20 paylines should you wish. Thus we achieve a max betting range of 0.20 to 200 which makes this online slot machine suitable for both beginners with a small bankroll and slot machine experts with a larger bankroll to play with.
Bonuses and Rewards
Now it's time to get down to the real business. It happens frequently in slot games and even to seasoned slot players. You play and play and still are unable to land a winning combination. NetEnt has recognized this problem and developed for these cases some special features that counteract these prolonged dry spells and if lucky driving profits through the roof.
In Jimi Hendrix, there are three different Scatter symbols for free spins. Land three Crosstown Traffic Free Spins on the reels and you get 6 free spins with wild reels donated to different positions. Purple Haze free spins come in groups of 6-12 free spins and transform the poker symbols 10, J, Q, K, A into instant wild symbols. The third, Little Wing Free Spins also comes in pgroups of 6-12 free spins and also brings with it 3-5 Wild symbols per rotation.
After this flood of information, we must first take a deep breath,because there’s still more! Perhaps the most important symbol is the Purple Haze icon featuring Jimi surrounded by purple mist. If you see this symbol on the first reel, the symbols 10, J, Q, K, A symbols are changed as the Purple Haze free spins itself in Wild order and rewarding you also with the Red Guitar Re-Spin, because in this case the reels spin again and the red guitars do not move from the spot. Every time another red guitar appears, you get another free spin. This feature is activated when four red guitars appear.
That must be all the features? Not even close! Let talk about the bonus game. Besides the already mentioned scatter symbols there is another Scatter. Once Jimi appears along with his guitar under the starry night sky three times, the pick-and-click bonus game will begin. It is your job to successively click on the boxes displayed and match one of three possible pairs. Depending on which of three pairs you select, you will receive one of the four Free Spins features. If you win a large amount then you will be treated to a personal solo by Jimi himself.
Alongside the Guns and Roses slot this is probably one of the best branded slots we’ve ever played and now we can’t wait for the next in the NetEnt Rocks series, the upcoming Motörhead Slot! If you haven’t played Jimi Hendrix yet then grab some free spins and go try it out, its one of the best you will ever play.
