The most influential electric guitarists in the history of popular music gets his own NetEnt slot game, and it’s just a little bit foxy.
Alright, confession time. We are not big music people. So sure, we knew what the Jimi Hendrix mobile slot was going to be about – we’re not aliens who got suddenly dropped in 2010.
But, whilst we knew of him, his music hasn’t touched our hearts as much as, say, the Guns n Roses slot did. We know, we know, the hate mail from hardcore fans is coming.
The point is, we had no expectations of what this NetEnt slot machine would look like, and it actually worked in our advantage.
One half of the team went ‘WTF are these crappy ass graphics’, whilst the other half was like ‘Oooh pretty! Look! Flowers, and peace symbols!’.
Either way, we both agreed that this Jimi Hendrix slot machine kinda works better on tablet and phone casinos than at online casinos. Net Entertainment have kept things very simple, and generally, it’s far more effective on a smaller format, in our opinion.
That said, unless you’re a fan of ‘Foxy Lady’ and ‘Are you going to walk my way’, the music might get on your nerves after the 10 thousandth time you hear it.
The base game is lively in that ‘look at the pretty graphics’ kind of way. But other than frequent wilds and red guitar re-spins, the real excitement is in any of the 3 different free spins features you can catch randomly on 3 scatters.
The Little Wings free spins is where we got our biggest wins, though, to be honest, we’ve almost been as lucky on the other 2 free spins bonus games, and where rarely disappointed.
Unfortunately, this Jimi Hendrix slot game isn’t always consistent in how often you get the free spins games. Or worse, you finally catch 3 scatters, but you get a coin reward instead of the free spins.
But once you start on a hot streak, it feels like it might just last as long as that famous Jimi Hendrix guitar rift. It doesn’t, but it feels that way.
It would be easy to be negative about this Jimi Hendrix video slot because it’s not quite as awesome as the Guns n Roses, or even the Gonzo’s Quest slot.
But, by anyone else’s standards other than NetEnt, this is a lively game, with lots of little different features, keeping you spinning and rocking along happily. Part of the NetEnt Rock Tour slot collection it’s one of three rock slots you can enjoy a few spins on. We’ve already mentioned Guns N Roses, but you also now have the Motorhead Touch slot to play too.
Just take our advice and when you get to about 25% to 50% up on your standard budget.
At that point, we’d recommend you try something a little harder hitting. The Jack & the Beanstalk slot perhaps?

Wild Symbol: The purple portrait of Jimi Hendrix is wild and replaces all other symbols except scatters.
Purple Haze Wild: The Purple Jimi Hendrix playing on his guitar, on the other hand, whilst also wild, but only shows up on reel 1. He will turn any 10, J, Q , K and A symbols into Wilds symbols for that spin only.
A nifty feature that can bring a few extra thrills, but doesn't show up as often as we'd like.
Red Guitar Re-spins: The red guitar is the most valuable symbol on the board. Get four anywhere on the board and you'll keep getting re-spins, with the guitars frozen in place. A little like the diamonds in the Neon Reels slot.
It can be very effective, though most of the time it's just to bring you a little closer to the edge of your seat.
Pick and Click Feature: If you get 3 scatters or more, you randomly trigger a click me bonus. Here you click on speakers, and depending on which 3 different symbols you reveal first, depends on what you win:
James Marshall Hendrix himself only had four bright years to showcase his talent and imagination, before his tragically early death.
The Jimi Hendrix mobile slot is not quite as extra-ordinary as the man himself, but it's a good show of talent from NetEnt who provide decent entertainment, if only for a short while.
If the free spins come often then you're laughing as you'll get a culmination of decent wins. Have a cold streak and you'll be bored of hearing the same tunes over and over again.
