About Jimi Hendrix
Slot games honouring iconic music legends are not new. However, in Jimi Hendrix, NetEnt has done more than just that. This 2016 release is a 5X3 grid slot that would take you down memory lane, right back to the 60s. Everything about it reminds you of Woodstock days.
The backdrop is an arid desert that evokes memories of the Stoner, Space and Desert Rock era. For the crisp pastel graphics and symbols, NetEnt seems to have drawn inspiration heavily from the historic days of the yore when Flower Power was the buzzword.
As you play, you are sure to get your head banging to the tunes because the soundtrack is a mixed bag of the best Hendrix classics. Purple Haze, Little Wing, Voodoo Child, Foxey Lady, Crosstown Traffic – it’s a great mash-up.
If I were to review Jimi Hendrix based purely on its music, I would rate it 10 on 10. This is by far the best I have seen of the lot. Crack up the volume because your ears are in for a treat!
Low-value symbols in the slot include A, K, Q, J and 10. Mid-value symbols include flower power, eyes, records, hearts and peace signs. Landing 3 or more of these symbols on the paylines fetch you a win.
Additionally, the slot comes with three high-value symbols that comprise two electric guitars – red and white – and the legend himself, both as the Wild and the highest paying symbol.
Landing 3 or more of the white guitar will bring you a win. As for the red guitar and Hendrix, you need to land just 2 of them on a payline for a win. Get going with the Jimi Hendrix slot by choosing a bet value between €0.20 / €200.
With its cool interface, all the game controls have been conveniently placed at the bottom of the grid and clearly labelled for you to understand. The ten tiny buttons on either side will reveal the winnings bet lines.
Volatility and RTP
NetEnt’s Jimy Hendrix is a low volatility slot with a 30.1% hit frequency. Expect frequent, small-value wins (possibly 1 in 3 spins). You would mostly win from the game’s Free Spins. The highest you can win is 400x your stake or 80000 coins.
The slot comes with an RTP of 96.9%, which is well above the RTP offered by most slots out there. Theoretically, you would win 96.9 off every 100 you bet.
Jimi Hendrix Features
Jimi Hendrix from NetEnt comes featured-packed! It has 6 bonus features in total. 2 of them are in the base game and 4 in a special feature called Pick and Click. Of the latter, 3 bonuses lead to Free Spins. I have discussed all of the slot’s rocking features below.
This feature can be activated during the main game when the Purple Haze symbol lands on the first reel.
This, in turn, transforms the low-paying symbols A, K, Q, J and 10 into Wilds for that particular spin only. Once the Wilds transformation is done, the Purple Haze symbol turns into a Wild, too, to increase your chances of landing a win.
Red Guitar Re-Spin
Landing 4 or more of the top-value Red Guitar anywhere on the reels in the main game will trigger the Red Guitar Re-Spin feature. Upon its activation, the reels spin for one more time without you having to click the spin button.
If you land Red Guitar symbols again, the reels will spin again. This re-spinning will continue until there are no more Red Guitar symbols on the reels.
Pick and Click Feature
When 3 Scatter symbols land on reels 3, 4 and 5, the Pick and Click feature is activated. It is an added game in the slot carrying 4 bonus features: a Coin Win, Crosstown Traffic Free Spins, Purple Haze Free Spins and Little Wing Free Spins.
You need to click on the loudspeakers to reveal the 4 varieties of symbols. Collect 3 of the same symbol to receive the corresponding prize. Please note that each feature offers only 1 prize.
- Coin Win – collect 3 Coin symbols to get rewarded with random multipliers ranging from 8x to 30x your initial bet.
- Crosstown Traffic Free Spins – collect 3 Crosstown Traffic Free Spins symbols to get rewarded with 6 Free Spins. Wild Reels appear on different reels for each spin – on the 5th for the first spin, on the 4th and 5th for the second spin, on the 3rd and 4th for the third spin, on the 2nd and 3rd for the fourth spin, on the 1st and 2nd for the fifth spin and on the 1st for the sixth spin.
- Purple Haze Free Spins – collect 3 Purple Haze Free Spins symbols to get rewarded with 6 to 12 Free Spins. Watch the symbols A, K, Q, J and 10 transform into Wilds during the Free Spins rounds.
- Little Wing Free Spins – collect 3 Little Wing Free Spins symbols to get rewarded with 6 to 12 Free Spins. Also, after every spin, watch 3 to 5 overlay Wilds appear randomly on the reels.
Jimi Hendrix Wilds
As the legend shows up as the Wild, all symbols on the reels except the Scatters get substituted royally.
NetEnt-borne Jimi Hendrix slot packs a hefty punch with stunning visuals, incredible features and brilliant bonuses. The design deserves a special mention because of how beautifully it has been accomplished. The soundtrack, as expected, is very Hendrix-y.
