In the online slot world, different series of games can be produced by a provider to give players a collection of titles that all under the same theme, format or style of gameplay. In the case of the Jimi Hendrix online slot, it's a part of the NetEnt Rock series, produced by Net Entertainment to honor some of the biggest rock and roll groups and singers in the history of music. This game features atypical animated graphics that fit in really well with the conceptual type of album art and other visuals that came along with the music of this legend.
Slot Format and Layout
The layout of this game is pretty typical with five reels, three rows and 20 paylines. The number of active paylines themselves are static and can't be changed, but you can choose how many coins you spend on each of those paylines, and you can pick coin sizes ranging from $0.01 to $1 apiece. The end result is a betting range from $0.20 to $200 per turn that gives all players a level of stake that fits their bankroll.
Wild Symbols and Regular Wins
The wild symbol in this game is Jimi Hendrix on a purple background, and he appears on all reels. He'll substitute for anything but the scatter symbols, though he doesn't have his own payouts. This wild and other wilds that come up as a part of the features help you to earn wins that you wouldn't have gotten otherwise, and they drive a lot of the gameplay.
Five of the wild Jimi Hendrix symbol pays the same as the red guitar symbol, the top regular-paying symbol in the game. You'll get 400x for five of a kind and 100x for four of a kind. What's cool about these symbols is that they pay for just two of a kind with a 2x win as well. They're the only two-of-a-kind winning symbol in the game.
Five of the blue guitar will pay out 200x. You'll get 150x for five peace signs or 125x for five hearts. Five of the record symbol earns a 100x payout with a 90x for five of the blue flower. Players pick up a solid 80x for five of the eyeball symbol.
The low-paying symbols, which are actually important for certain features, pay 75x for an A, 70x for a K or 60x for a Q. You can also earn 50x for five of a kind in either the J or 10 symbols. All five of these symbols are stylized in a way that really make sense for the theme of this game.
The main features in this game include the Purple Haze feature and the Red Guitar re-spin. If you get the Purple Haze feature with Jimi playing the guitar on the first reel, then all of the low-paying symbols (A, K, Q, J and 10) turn into wilds for that spin. The Purple Haze symbol itself will also count as a wild. It goes without saying that this feature can lead to some pretty significant payouts with so many potential wilds on the screen.
With four or more of the red guitar symbols on the reels, you'll get a re-spin feature. This spins the reels again with the red guitars held static, and if you get more red guitars on that re-spin, you'll get another one over and over until no new red guitars show up. Because this is the highest-paying symbol in the game, that means you can get some pretty big payouts with this feature as well.
Free Spin Features
Finally, there is also a pick and click feature. If you get three scattered Jimi Hendrix in white on a starry background, you'll get a selection of different free spins features. You can get an instant win worth up to 30x, Crosstown Traffic Free Spins (wild reels), Purple Haze Free Spins (use the Purple Haze feature on each spin as described above), or the Little Wing free spins (overlay wilds). This is a huge number of features for a single slot, and it goes to show that Net Entertainment really did a great job with this title.
After seeing the other titles in the NetEnt Rocks line, we expected this game to have a lot of video footage and real pictures of Jimi Hendrix. While we were disappointed in that regard, we were happy with the direction they decided to take things visually, and we're really impressed with how they handled the combination of regular gameplay and the bonus features. Overall, we feel this is a strong title in the NetEnt Rocks series and in their portfolio as a whole. We believe every type of slot fan will be able to find something they enjoy about this game, even if you aren't a fan of the music.
