Jimi Hendrix Game by NetEnt
Idols of rock do not come much bigger than Jimi Hendrix. He’s the guy that your favourite guitarist probably lists as an inspiration and he’s certainly inspired the design team at NetEnt, who have made him the star on the second stop of their 2016 Rock Tour. Players may well remember Guns n’ Roses from a few months back and, in fairness, it would be a difficult one to forget given that it was probably the biggest release of the year so far. It was all about looking great and sounding even better, and if players are expecting the same kind of thing again, they might actually be in for a bit of a surprise. That’s all because the Jimi Hendrix game has been designed with something else in mind altogether. Rather than being at a gig, you’ll feel more like you’re in a Purple Haze, with a real psychedelic feeling to proceedings on this one.
Fortunately, you won’t need your wits about you too much in order to get straight into the action on this game as just twenty fixed lines of action make it one of the more accessible releases of recent times. Choose your bet levels and coin bets just as you would on virtually any other NetEnt game and you’re well on your way to getting your hands on some great features – which are definitely the key parts of this game.
Base Game Bonuses
Jimi’s portrait is the wild symbol and it is every bit as conventional as the betting options, filling in as it does for anything other than the bonus symbols on the game. The base game action doesn’t end there either, with two special features up for grabs as the game proceeds. It starts off with the Purple Haze feature, where landing the relevant symbol on the first reel will see it turning into a wild card. That’s not all either, as the Haze overcomes the playing card symbols too, turning them into further wild cards before any prizes are calculated and paid.
The iconic red guitar is also treated to a suitably impressive bonus result and you’ll need to land four of them in view to access the feature. When that happens, they’ll stick in place while the reels spin again for free. Land further red guitars and the respins will continue, until ultimately the board state is assessed and prizes are paid out accordingly.
The Main Event
The main bonus feature on Jimi Hendrix actually starts out as a pick a win round, which probably doesn’t sound all that exciting to most players. However, the results of the picks are not instant cash. Instead, players will be looking to match up three symbols at the same time to trigger a further bonus feature. These include the standard coin win, paying out between eight and thirty times the total stake and the Little Wing free spins, which see the player being awarded between six and twelve free games with three, four or five wilds added to the game board prior to each spin. The Purple Haze free spins also award between six and twelve spins, this time with all playing card icons being wild as standard. The quartet of bonuses is rounded out with the Crosstown Traffic free games, which are guaranteed to come along in sixes and will see either one or two reels turning completely wild prior to every single spin.
Jimi Hendrix Touch
Jimi Hendrix may be feature packed, but games like South Park demonstrate that NetEnt certainly isn’t afraid of cramming in plenty of bonuses on its mobile games. To that end, Jimi Hendrix Touch has also been released on mobile devices and, unlike Guns n’ Roses, is pretty much identical to the online version.
This is a quality game befitting an already iconic series and you can see all of the features in action by playing it for yourself at the top of this page.
