We don't have the video, but in this special preview we have screenshots of the up and coming Jimi Hendrix slot by NetEnt. Here's what we've discovered.
Back in the beginning of February we told you to expect one hell of a NetEnt Rock tour in 2016.
It started with the Guns n Roses slot out in January 2016, and will be continued by the Jimi Hendrix online slot on the 21st of April 2016, finishing with Motorhead in September.
Whilst the video for Jimi Hendrix is not out officially yet, there is one sneaky little video that has been making the rounds, of which we have exclusive screenshots.
Obviously, everything may still change, but it’s fun to speculate, isn’t it?
Needless to say, if you are going to create a Rock slots series, having Jimi Hendrix in the mix only adds solid gold tunes.
However, what we weren’t expecting was pure psychedelic 60s.

Would you look at that? You’ve got flower power, hearts, peace symbols, beautiful white guitars and your typical Ace to 9 symbol.
It’s about a million miles away from the loud, brash 80s of Guns n Roses, and whilst it took us by surprise, once we got use to the look, we didn’t think it was half bad.
It makes sense after all. It’s not you had music videos in the traditional sense back then, but Jimi fully embrace all the rebellious ideas of the era, changing the way guitar was even played.
What better way to pay homage to the man, than to pay homage to the decade?
And we literally mean ‘never’. Hand-drawn by the artists at NetEntertainment Games studios, the guitar maestro is everywhere, moving, playing guitar, and generally rocking out to his greatest hits.
It doesn’t seem, at first glance, that you’ll get to pick the tunes you get to play, but then, hard to say from a few screenshots, and it’s still months away from being ready.
That said, doesn’t mean we know nothing:
“Jimi Hendrix Online Slot™ is a 5-reel, 3-row, 20-line (fixed) video slot with Re-spins, Wild substitutions, Wild transformation and a Pick and Click feature where Free Spins or coins can be won.” Official NetEnt statement.
Now that’s something we can get onboard with. The problem, if you want to call it that, is that you trigger these bonuses by getting 3 symbols on screen.
You then get to pick from a set of speakers. Because of course. Rock God remember?

Depending on the symbols revealed you’ll trigger either:
That’s right, each free spin is named after a classic song, and guess what you’ll get in the background when you’re spinning? That’s cool, come on.
Of course, the only problem with this system is that it can get frustrating if you don’t catch the feature you like often enough, one of the reasons we didn’t rate Microgaming’s Bridesmaids slot.
But, on the other hand, you have 3 out of 4 chances of getting free spins. Not sure which will be the better one, but if the bonus feature comes often, you probably wont care.
Still a little early to tell. We know, the instant cash bonus is going to be some kind of ‘click and win’ second screen bonus.
The one that seems interesting, mostly because if we are honest, it’s the one we’ve got the most information about, is the Crosstown traffic spins.
As you can see, on each spin you’ll get an expanded wild, which moved from reel 5 to reel 1 on each spin – sometimes covering 2 whole reels.
Purple Haze, as far as we understand it, replaces lower paying symbols with wilds, and Little Wings free spins just adds random wilds.
Of course we should.
Yes, we know that their latest, the Aloha Cluster Pays slot, wasn’t a huge hit.
But Guns and Roses was brilliant, and we can’t imagine they would put any less effort in this Jimmi Hendrix mobile slot.
And of course, we simply don’t know enough in order to be able to pass any judgement yet.
A couple of screen shots and a sentence to describe the game?
Even we wouldn’t dare say whether this was going to be any good or not just yet. Let’s be honest it’s just to soon to tell.
We will wait till we get the full slot video for that.
The four features will be cool. Of that we’re (pretty) sure. But we suspect that there will be more to it – they won’t keep the base game as simple as it might at first appear.
There are rumours of a re-spin sticky win feature – much like you would in the famous Jack Hammer slot perhaps – and random extra wilds.
But we’ll keep that for another day, when we have more concrete evidence to show you.
Don’t know about you, but we were planning a little trip to Greece.
Oh, wait, you mean what should you play whilst you wait for this Jimi Hendrix video slot to come out? Right. Sorry. Thought you might be interested in our lives for once.
NetEnt have a huge selection of awesome slots to play – latest of which has to be Guns n Roses. New releases we’ve been particularly enjoying as well, though not from the same provider, have been Toki Time by Thunderkick and Cloud Quest by Play’n GO.
But hey, you don’t have to choose. You can play all three at Casumo Casino right now with £€$1,200 over 4 deposits and 200 free spins to boot.Start Playing at Casumo »
