In February of this year we reported on the impending launch of a Jimi Hendrix slot from NetEnt [read article here].
On Thursday 21st April the legendary guitar player became the second to hit a selection of online casinos in The Rock trilogy from this game developer.
We headed on over to InterCasino for a spin of the reels and to see if the Jimi Hendrix Slot was as good as the inaugural title from the trilogy.
Unlike the Guns N’ Roses slot there is no choice of tunes to be found in this game.
Instead players can listen to the Foxy Lady song from Jimi Hendrix when they are spinning the reels. Without the choice of multiple songs, you may find yourself reaching for the volume / mute button quite quickly if you’re enjoying the gameplay, the tune soon becomes too repetetive.
The game is a five reel, three row, 20 payline video slot and offers respins, wilds that are substituted AND transformed and a ‘Pick and Click’ bonus round.
When you open the slot for the first time you’re certainly transported straight back to the 60’s with an array of time appropriate symbols.
These include the Peace sign, vinyl records, daisies, love hearts and the all seeing eye. There’s also Jimi Hendrix himself in a cartoon form.
There are three special features that can be activated during the main game.
This is activated when the Purple Haze logo (Jimi Hendrix) appears on reel one.
For that spin only all the 10, J, Q, K and A symbols will transform to a wild. When the transformation has happened, the Purple Haze logo becomes a wild too.
When you land four of more Red Guitar symbols on the reels during the main game you activate this feature. When it has been activated the reels will respin once.
If a Red Guitar appears on the reels during that respin, another is activated. The feature only ends when no more Red Guitars have appeared.
This is activated when three or more scatter symbols appear on reels 3, 4 and 5. This is another Jimi Hendrix symbol.
There are a total of four different games that you could be playing when you activate Pick and Click:
A Coin Win – this will be between x8 and x30 your initial bet
Crosstown Traffic Free Spins – this will activate six free spins with wild reels appearing on reel 5 on spin win, reels 4 and 5 on spin two, 3 and 4 on spin 3, 2 and 3 on spin 4, 1 and 2 in spin 5 and on reel 1 for spin 6.
Purple Haze Free Spins – between six and 12 free spins will be awarded and during these the 10, J, Q, K and A symbols will be wilds.
Little Wing Free Spins – between six and 12 free spins will be given and between 3 and 5 overlay wilds appearing on the reels.
Click on the speakers and when you have collected three of the same symbol, that is the prize that is awarded.
It’s certainly a very interactive game from NetEnt and we really liked the bonus rounds! Add in the little flowers that appear around the winning symbols when a payline pays out, and the Jimi Hendrix slot has plenty of playability.
