Jimi Hendrix Slots
Powered by NetEnt software, Jimi Hendrix Slots is a new five-reel, 20-Payline video slot. It’s inspired, of course, by the American musician, one of rock’s greatest names, and is playable on desktop and across all mobile devices.
This themed slot was released well ahead of 2020, the fiftieth anniversary of the music legend’s death. And it’s a timely reminder of the way Hendrix changed guitar sounds forever.
With its retro/psychedelic graphics, evoking Woodstock and flower power, and reels set against a stage, this game is a huge hit.
It follows NetEnt’s other music-themed slots, including one based on Guns N’ Roses.
How to play
Play Jimi Hendrix from anywhere between 20p and £200 per spin, as you enjoy a guitar-based soundtrack featuring Hendrix classics Purple Haze, Little Wing and Crosstown.
Play is fairly standard, with Coin Value, Max Bet, Spin button and Autoplay features. You can also set the desired number of coins per line.
There are six bonus features, two in the base game, four in the special Pick and Click feature described below. (We know it sounds like an online grocery shop.)
Red Guitar respins
Launch this when you land at least four of the Red Guitar symbols anywhere on the reels and get one respin. (These then remain there, serving as overlay symbols during every respin.) Enjoy respins for as long as Red Guitar symbols keep appearing on the reels.
This one is clearly named after the famous 1967 Hendrix song. Land the Purple Haze symbol on the first reel to kick the feature off. It means the low-paying symbols 10, J, Q, K and A become Wild (that symbol is Hendrix himself) for that spin.
What’s more, the Purple Haze symbol itself is also Wild here, further boosting your winning power. The Wild can substitute for all other symbols apart from the Scatter, and make winning combinations by itself. Land five on an active Payline to bag 400 coins.
The Pick and Click
Play this when three Scatters (Jimi playing the guitar) pop up on Reels 3 through 5. Four different prizes are up for grabs. Click on the loudspeakers to reveal your prizes – and collect three of the same to receive that prize:
- Crosstown Traffic free spins: Win six free spins and see Wild reels popping up on different reels for each one. Different reels become Wild on every spin.
- Little Wings free spins: This gives you between six and a dozen free spins, as well as three Wilds as overlays, showing randomly on the reels for each spin
- Coin Win feature: Win this and get between eight and 30 times your overall stake.
- Purple Haze free spins: This awards between six and 12 free spins. And, as with the base game Purple Haze feature, the same lower-paying symbols become Wilds for as long as the feature lasts. Up to five Wilds can pop up with every free spin, making this feature arguable the game’s most lucrative.
Return to Player (RTP)
Return to Player or RTP is not too shabby at all with this game, at 96.9%.
Jimi Hendrix Slots is a medium-variance affair, with the majority of winnings cropping up during the base game. You’re likely to give this one the thumbs-up if you enjoy a retro/psychedelic vibe and are already a Hendrix fan. But with plenty of bonus features and balanced gameplay, there are stacks here to keep everyone happy.
