The Jimi Hendrix slot is Net Entertainment's homage to the man behind Voodoo Chile, Purple Haze and a number of other classic rock songs. As a part of the NetEnt Rocks series, this game features a tremendous amount of high-quality music, and you'll get a chance to experience several bonus features in a land of great graphics and abstract visuals based on the music of the legend himself. This game is jam-packed with features and other goodies, and it will appeal to an extremely wide range of slot fans.
The format for this game uses 20 paylines across five reels and three rows. It's typical of NetEnt to produce games with very typical basic formats and to still blow the competition out of the water with how incredibly well-produced the gameplay is. You can bet up to 10 coins on each payline with coins ranging from $0.01 to $1 apiece, so players have a betting range of $0.20 to $200 per spin to contend with. That's obviously going to cover the needs of virtually every type of player.
Main Game Features
During the main game, you can trigger two different features. The first is the Purple Haze feature, and it triggers when you get the Purple Haze symbol on the first reel. When you get that, all of the lower-tier symbols (A, K, Q, J and T) will turn into wilds for that one spin to give you shots at some pretty impressive wins.
The Red Guitar re-spin feature is the other main game feature, and getting four or more of the red guitar on the reels triggers this re-spin feature. The way this works is that the reels spin again with the red guitars held still. If new red guitars show up, they stay in place to give you even more re-spins. When no more red guitars show up, the feature is over, and you'll collect your winnings.
The Pick and Click Feature
If you get three of more of the scattered Jimi Hendrix wearing white symbols on the reels, you'll get a Pick and Click feature. There are four different bonus features you can win from there, and you'll pick up one of them each time you activate the Pick and Click. A coin win will give you between 8 and 30 times your total bet as an instant win. There are also free spins modes you can win through this feature.
The Crosstown Traffic free spins give you six free spins with wild reels. The Purple Haze free spins feature gives you between 6 and 12 free turns with the low-tier symbols turning into wilds. Finally, there's the Little Wing free spins feature which gives players between 3-5 random wild symbols overlaid on the board after the spin for between 6 and 12 free turns. All of these features offer a pretty sizable amount of value, and they're great options for players who want to run up some big payouts. It's cool to see so many different free spins feature in a video slot like this.
Top Regular Pays
The wild symbol shows up on all reels, but it doesn't have its own payouts. Four of Jimi or of the red guitar will give you 400x for five and 100x for four. They also both pay for just two of a kind. A 200x win is yours for five of the white guitar, and players can earn 150x for five of the peace sign.
Five of the hearts earns 125x, and the record will get you 100x for five of a kind. The flower and eye also give you reasonable payouts with 90x and 80x, respectively, for five of each.
Finally, we have the low-tier symbols. Five As will earn you 75x, and five Ks earns you slightly less at 70x. A 60x win is good for five of the Q symbol, and five of either the J or 10 symbol will pick up 50x.
The style of graphics in the Jimi Hendrix online slot is a bit typical because it's based on a particular style of animation. It's definitely of a high quality, and the music in the game is of a top-notch quality as well, but it might throw players off a little at first who are expecting live action footage or something along those lines. Regardless, it's a great game with great production values all around, and the gameplay itself is excellent as well.
