Jimi Hendrix is a five reel Slot machine developed by NetEnt honouring the memory of one of the most original entertainers of the last century. It all takes place in a Grand Canyon-like desert setting, with symbols that reflect the artist's personality - Peace, Love, Guitars, and Vinyl. Be prepared for a great retro audio and visual and experience.

The game has two main features. The red guitar re-spins, which will activate when four or more remain as sticky wilds for the next spin; if more red guitars appear during the following round, higher earnings will follow. The purple haze feature will transform every number symbol into wilds, along with the symbol itself, and prizes are then guaranteed.

Other features involve collecting different symbols through the game and in a special pick & click round triggered by three Scatter symbols landing on reels 3, 4 and 5. Don't miss the dramatic intro!

Players Review

Yes, you guessed it right: the soundtrack is AWESOME. What else are we supposed to expect from an online slot called "Jimi Hendrix"? You'll feel like you're right there in Woodstock. It's an impressive backdrop to this feature rich slot.

Talking of features, my favourite is triggering the pick & click with 3 Scatter symbols. That's the only way to start collecting the guitars and coins necessary to unveil the big prizes, and all of this while you're listening to the Foxy Lady. The sound effects are something else. If you love classic rock, don’t put your money in a jukebox, you will get better value putting it in this slot

Jimi and his guitar will eventually land on the first reel to trigger the Purple Haze action, which is one of the most rewarding features of the game. Slick animations and edited song parts will let you know you have hit the feature, triggering the free spin mode.

But it’s not all good news. With so much entertainment value there just has to be a downside, doesn’t there?  The payout table is quite low, to be honest, and the prizes are relatively small compared to other slot machines available in the 20-lines format. That's a shame; I would have loved to spend more time on the game if only to soak up the great vibes!

Top Slot, you must give it a go! Perhaps you'll be luckier than me on the free spins.
