Jimi Hendrix is one of three rock bands/names which Net Ent will build a slot machine around in 2016. The other two are Guns N Roses and Motorhead. All three will be slots which are released in the same series, which the developer called Net Ent Rocks. Jimi Hendrix was a big name for the rock industry, but unfortunately he died at just 27 years old, in 1970.
To this day, many still consider that he was the best instrumentalist of the rock genre. Created under license, the slots include some of the more popular songs that were played by Hendrix, along with appropriate graphics, great features and hopefully big prizes as well. The game has 5 reels and 20 lines, with payouts of up to 80,000 coins.
What We Love
The slot’s design is inspired by the 70s, so you’re going to discover a pretty vintage look inside, with symbols appearing a bit too kid like for my tastes, but being a pretty good fit for that era. The flower power movement seems to have had significant influence over the design of Jimi Hendrix. You will discover more than a few symbols which have our hero present, plus others with peace signs, eyes, records, flowers and red hearts. It’s an appropriate theme for that decade, but it doesn’t look that great to be honest.
One of the things I loved most about this slot is the long list of features, which you can take advantage of as you play. First, there is one that is called Purple Haze. The right symbol needs to appear on the 1st reel for it to trigger, but once it does, you will get the playing card symbols to turn into wilds for that particular round. The same happens with the Purple Haze icon, once it does its job. Since playing cards tend to appear often, this is one feature that I think will be quite valuable.
Another one is Red Guitar Re-Spin, which triggers with 4+ scattered Red Guitar symbols present. The game gives you re-spins for as long as you get additional Red Guitar symbols on the reels from them.
Pick & Click does just that, asks you to choose speakers from the screen, and depending on the kind of sound they put out, you activate one of the three types of free spins, or a coin win. The coin win can be anywhere between 8x and 30x the wager.
Crosstown Traffic free games offer you 6 rounds of the game for free, with wild reels showing up during each one. The location of the wild reels is predetermined, and you get one or two wilds each time.
Little Wing also gives you free spins. You win 6 to 12 free games, and they will have between 3 and 5 overlay wilds show up each round.
What We Do Not Like
I’m not a big fan of the cartoon style in use here, but the design does manage to surprise the feel of the 70s quite well.
The game is filled with features, offers up to 80,000 coins in prizes and the design is good for a slot themed around the 70s and Jimi Hendrix.
