ooo, Foxy Lady! Now the time has finally come. Let’s celebrate Jimi Hendrix’s brilliant entry into the slot world. NetEnts second stroke in the NetEnt Rocks series after the outstanding Guns N’ Roses is not only worth a recommendation for fans of the legendary rock star, but for all players who like a successful presentation, a great soundtrack and all kinds of bonus features.
Rock with Jimi Hendrix and let the reels spin until the winning combinations emerge from the purple mist. Or set the slot to automatic and challenge Jimi to a guitar solo battle. If you haven’t fallen head over heels in love with Jimi Hendrix at this point, we’ll get you in the mood in this Slots Test!
Let’s start with the most eye-catching feature of the machine. Jimi Hendrix is at first glance a light, comic-like slot machine that comes without any 3D presentation. This first impression is a huge deception. As soon as the reels spin and the first winning combinations are made, this slot machine wakes up from its nap and a mixture of vivid 3D animations and flowery effects becomes noticeable. In combination with the psychedelic colouring Jimi Hendrix is one of the most atmospheric slot machines we have played lately.
Jimi Hendrix is a down-to-earth slot machine despite the airy staging. Here NetEnt has delivered the usual format, 5 reels and 20 paylines. Coin denominations can be chosen between €0.01 and €1, while you can bet up to 10 coins simultaneously on one of the 20 paylines. This allows us to achieve a betting bandwidth of €0.20 to €200, making the machine affordable for beginners as well as for experts with large budgets.
bonuses and winnings
Now it’s time to get down to business. It also happens to seasoned players: You play and play and no winning combination wants to be hit. NetEnt has recognized this problem and has implemented some special features for these cases, which counteract longer durst periods and drive winnings to unbelievable heights.
In Jimi Hendrix there are three different scatter symbols for free spins. If there are three Crosstown Traffic Freespins on the reels, you will get 6 free spins with wild reels at different positions. Purple Haze free spins come in groups of 6 to 12 and transform the poker symbols 10, J, Q, K, A into wild symbols. The third free game Little Wing also comes in packages of 6 to 12 pieces and brings 3-5 Wild symbols per spin.
After this flood of information we first have to take a deep breath, because it still goes on! Perhaps the most important symbol is the Purple Haze symbol, in which Jimi lays down a small solo surrounded by purple fog. If you see this symbol on the first role, the symbols 10, J, Q, K, A change into wild symbols like in the Purple Haze free spins. The Red Guitar Re-Spin is also a real reward, as the reels turn again while the red guitars don’t move. Each time there is another red guitar, the reels turn again. This feature is activated as soon as four red guitars appear at the same time.
That must have been it now? Far from it! Let’s talk about the bonus game. Beside the already mentioned scatter symbols there is another scatter. As soon as Jimi and his guitar appear three times under the starry night sky, the Pick and Click bonus game will start. Your task here is to click on the boxes displayed one after the other to bring three pairs of symbols hidden in the boxes to light. Depending on which pair of three you choose, you will receive one of four different winnings: Coin Win, Crosstown Traffic, Purple Haze, or Little Wing Free Spins.
Coin Wins? We forgot to mention them! If 3 coin symbols appear at the same time, you will be rewarded with a coin amount between x8 and x30 of your original bet. High stakes are especially worthwhile with Jimi Hendrix and are not only acknowledged by a patented Jimi Hendrix Solo, but also by a jump in the air of the player.
