The much anticipated Jimi Hendrix online slot was released April 21st, 2016 by NetEnt, as much a legend among developers of online slots as Hendrix is a guitar Rock legend. This brand new, online video slot makes a great first impression with a high RTP of 96,9% and the promise of a large single bet win in the amount of 80.000 coins. While many of the bonus features are similar to those used in Guns N’ Roses, another Rock n’ Roll based slot by NetEnt, the new Jimi Hendrix game expands on shared concepts that set both games apart from other online slots.
The Man, the Myth, the Legend
Jimi Hendrix fans and music lovers will be thrilled at the playlist which includes some of his most famous hits: Foxy Lady, Purple Haze, Crosstown Traffic, and Little Wing. The cartoonish graphics scream flower power from the 60’s (Hendrix’s heyday) and feature pics of Jimi on special symbols.
Jimi Hendrix is a 3-row, 5-reel, 20 fixed payline slot playable from either mobile device or desktop. The highest win on a payline is paid out for that line, but multiple wins can be added together if they are from separate paylines. Cash bets are controlled by adjusting the coin values and bet levels. There are 7 coin values (0.01, 0.05, 0.10, 0.25, 0.50, 1.00, 2.00) and 10 bet levels (1-10) which allow for a cash bet range of 0.20p-£200.00 per spin at Karamba.

Jimi Hendrix pays out left to right with 3+ matching symbols starting from reel 1. There are several special symbols that include: Jimi Hendrix Wild (replaces any symbol except Scatters), Purple Haze Wild, Red Guitar Scatter, Jimi Scatter, Purple Haze Free Spin, Cross Town Traffic Free Spins, and Little Wing Free Spins. Regular symbols include psychedelic pics of a White Guitar, Peace Sign, Heart, Record, Blue Flower, Eye and 10-Ace.
Jimi Hendrix special features
Jimi Hendrix features 9 autoplay options ranging from 10-1000. Advanced autoplay allows for more specific settings. Set it to stop on: any win (regular, Pick and Click, Free Spin feature), if a single win is more than a set amount, or if cash balance increases or decreases by a set amount. Unique game settings include Quick Spin and the option to view game history.
Jimi Hendrix bonus features
Red Guitar Re-spin: This feature is triggered by 4+ Red Guitars for 1 Re-spin (Red Guitars act as overlay). If another Red Guitar shows up during the Re-spin, an additional Re-spin is awarded.
Purple Haze Wild: This Wild changes every low value symbol (10-Ace) to Wilds if it shows up anywhere on reel 1 during a spin. It acts as a Wild and lasts 1 spin only.
Pick and Click: This bonus is triggered by 3+ Jimi Scatter symbols on reels 3-5 during regular or Purple Haze spins. Pick and click from several speakers to match symbols for a prize. Win up to 12 Free Spins, or if 3 Gold Coin symbols (featuring Jimi’s profile) are collected, receive a multiplier of 8x-30x the base bet for a win of up to £6,000.

Get Ready to Rock this Slot
Jimi Hendrix is a Rock legend. This online slot has done a brilliant job of capturing the spirit of the 60’s and showcasing classic Hendrix hits – even incorporating his favored Fender Stratocaster in the symbols and bonus features. Even so, it is a bit disappointing that NetEnt didn’t deviate too far from their successful Guns N’ Roses slot in terms of bonus features, and while the plentiful special symbols and features make for interesting and varied gameplay, newcomers to online slots may find it overwhelming. That being said, this slot is a must play for any Rock fan, Hendrix fan, or experienced online slot fan. It has the RTP, big win potential, graphics, and music to make it an instant classic.
