Jimi Hendrix is a net Entertainment video slot with 5 reels and 20 paylines. Playable from 20p to £200 a spin across desktop, tablet and mobile devices, the game is based on the iconic musician who died tragically at the tender age of 27. NetEnt have brought him, and the experience, back to life with plenty of bonus features.
Theme wise, and as always, it looks fantastic – it has a psychedelic feel which will take you back to the Flower Power era. Featuring 3 of his hit songs, there are 6 bonus features in total. You have 2 in the base game with Red Guitar Re-spin feature playable when you see 4 or more Red Guitar symbols – these remain on the reels with a re-spin granted. You will benefit from more re-spins as long as more Red Guitar symbols appear.
There is also the Purple Haze feature which is played when the Purple Haze symbol appears on the left-most reel. The low value symbols (10, J, Q, K and A) change into wilds for that spin. You can also benefit from the Purple Haze symbol which transforms into an additional wild.
However, it’s all about the Pick and Click feature which is played when 3 scatter symbols appear simultaneously on reels 3, 4 and 5. You get to pick from loudspeakers with 3 matching ones triggering 1 of 4 bonus features. There is a Coin Win feature where you will a cash prize of up to 30 times your bet.
The Purple Haze Free Spins feature rewards you with between 6 and 12 free spins and, as in the base game feature, the 10, J, Q, K and A become wild for the free spins feature.
The Little Wings Free Spins feature gives you between 6 and 12 free spins with a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 5 overlay wilds for every single free spin.
The Crosstown Traffic Free Spins feature only gives you 6 free spins but there are wild reels to benefit from – here are the details:
- 1st free spin gives you a wild reel on the 5th reel
- 2nd free spin gives you wilds reels on reels 4 and 5
- 3rd free spin gives you wild reels on reels 3 and 4
- 4th free spin sees reels 2 and 3 become wild reels
- 5th free spin gives you wild reels on reels 1 and 2
- 6th free spin gives you a wild reel on reel 1
The maximum win in the Jimi Hendrix slot is 400 times per stake which suggests it’s a medium variance offering – you can see this as a little disappointing but the gameplay, graphics and entertainment value is second to none. I found my biggest wins coming in the Purple Haze Free Spins feature as there are 6 wilds that can appear on the reels!
In theory, the most lucrative feature should be the Crosstown Traffic Free Spins feature due to the wild reels. Overall, Net Entertainment offer you a superb slot game which is sure to go on to become a classic. If you like the music theme, they also offer you Guns N’ Roses – if you want something more volatile, you cannot go wrong with Dead or Alive.
