Jimi Hendrix Review

5 / 5
Maximum Jackpot: 400

Overview

After the huge success of Guns N’ Roses NetEnt decided to release another rock themed slot. This time around we get to see Jimi Hendrix on the spinning reels. However, it’s nothing like Guns N’ Roses. The designers took a different approach. All aspects of the game design point in one direction only, love. After all, most of his songs are about love and he was performing during the period when the hippie culture was flourishing. We must admit that NetEnt put their reputation on the line by depicting the work of Jimi Hendrix in this way, but they did an amazing job.

If we add up the numbers the minimum bet is 0.20 and it can go as up as 200. The maximum prize you can win playing Jimi Hendrix slot is 400 times the bet you place. Most players will find the game entertaining due to the high bonus feature hit rate and the above average RTP of 96.9%.

Features

The magic begins at the very moment you start the game. There’s a short video that shows our lead guitarist Jimi Hendrix playing his guitar under a full moon, surrounded by huge loudspeakers. The game features symbols like hearts, flowers, the hippie symbol, a guitar, a vinyl record and Jimi Hendrix himself. Jimi Hendrix is the wild symbol in this game. It substitutes for every other symbol except the scatter. On top of this the wild is the highest paying symbol.

Bonus features are triggered when a Purple Haze symbol lands on the reel 1. The 2nd bonus feature that can trigger during base game is Red Guitar Re-Spin. It triggers when 4 red guitars land anywhere on the reels. This feature will trigger as long as there are 4 red guitars on the reels.

There’s yet another bonus feature that triggers when 3 scatter symbols appear on reels 3, 4 or 5. This is a pick and click feature that allows the player to choose a prize.

Special Features

There are 4 prizes in the pick and click feature. The first one is called a Coin Win and it rewards the player with a cash prize between 8 and 30 times the initial bet.

Players can also enter the Crosstown Traffic Free Spins if they reveal 3 white guitars on fire. In this game players are granted 6 Free Spins with Wild Reels appearing in a given order. The 1st free spin will have a the 1st reel as a Wild Reel, on the 2nd spin Wild Reels appear on reel 4 and 5, on the 3rd spin the 3rd and the 4th reel turn into Wild Reels. On the 4th spin the 2nd and the 3rd reel are Wild Reels, the 5th spin turns reels 1 and 2 into Wild Reels and lastly the 6th spin comes with the 1st reel as the Wild Reel.

Revealing 3 white guitars with what looks like purple slime around it triggers  the Purple Haze Free Spins. During these 6 to 12 Free Spins the symbols 10, J, Q, K and A turn into Wild Symbols. This is the feature that offers the best winning prospects.

Last, but not least is the Little Wing Free Spins bonus game. The player is granted between 6 and 12 Free Spins during which between 3 and 5 overlay Wild symbols appear randomly on the reels for every individual spin.

Conclusion

It’s a content rich slot which offers a lot of winning opportunities. NetEnt made the bonus feature trigger rate significantly higher than average to make the game more fun to play. And whenever you trigger a bonus feature rest assured big prizes will follow. We expect to see more slots that are based on music stars and their art. It’s exciting to see them finally reward us for all the time we spent listening to their songs and watching their performances.
