Jimi Hendrix video slot
In April 2016 NetEnt Company added a new diamond to its online casino game list - Jimi Hendrix video slot. This machine is named in honour of the greatest rock guitarist of all time, who was not only the first one to show how effectively set the audience on fire and crash the guitar on stage but was able to extract from the fantastic musical instrument. The mastery of playing the electric guitar, demonstrated by this contemporary of beats and hipsters, served as an example for all subsequent generations of rock musicians, starting with the charismatic Liverpool four and ending with a rocker from rural amateur performances. You can start playing the free demo of this video slot without signing up, without leaving the page.
Personal testers opinion
Jimi Hendrix video slot is an excellent slot machine with legendary tracks and the high winning potential. It is devoted to a racing topic; it is so famous throughout the gamblers who cannot live without adrenalin rush. This game reminds Guns N Roses video slot on the implementation of bonus feature. Unfortunately, in 2016, Netent closed the possibility of playing this slot machine to players from some countries, which significantly reduced its popularity and made it difficult to fill the prize pool for the winning. That`s why I can say only neutral recommendations for playing for real money.
Review and recommendations by the testing team
Jimi Hendrix is a thematic slot from NetEnt does not disappoint in graphics or in sound. It is bright, with an interesting idea and great gameplay.
- In the main game, the slot quite often makes a series of spins without a win, or with a minimum win close to the initial bet value and allows a small loss in balance. Due to a large number of additional features, it compensates not only for the loss but gives an opportunity for a win. The potential to win large sums, for example, from 1000 bets and above, is nonexistent here. At the same time, the slot fairly stably issues about 50 bets, which is not bad considering the frequency and stability of such combinations issuance.
- The PURPLE HAZE feature is issued frequently in the main game and when it is activated, such symbols like 10, J, Q, K, A are replaced with wild symbols. In most cases, the replaced characters are given in a very little amount (1-4) and this gives wins of 1-5 bets, which are enough to partially compensate for the loss in balance in the main game. At the same time, during testing, it was repeatedly possible to get combinations with the replacement of 7-8 characters, which brought a winning of about 40-60 bets.
- The RED GUITAR RE-SPIN feature starts the RE-SPIN feature when 4 or more RED GUITAR symbols drop on the reels during the main spin. RE-SPIN occurs until at least one additional
- RED GUITAR symbol appears. Just like for the PURPLE HAZE feature, in most cases there are not many additional symbols and the winnings here are 1-5 bets, or there is no winning at all if, for example, the guitars symbols appeared from the second or further reels, but at the same time during testing we repeatedly managed to get 9-10 of these symbols, which brought a win of 40-60 bets.
- The bonus game PICK AND CLICK give us the opportunity to choose one of the bonus features for the period of free spins or win coins. This bonus game is usually issued with a fairly high frequency, in a series of 3-4 bonus games, with small intervals between them and, accordingly, quite large intervals between portions of bonus games. Therefore, if you received a bonus game, do not rush and leave the slot, in most cases, it gives up to 3 bonus games after a small number of spins.
- Opening coins give a win from 8 to 30 bets. It is worth noting that quite often the slot gives the maximum possible value.
- The feature CROSSTOWN TRAFFIC FREE SPINS gives 6 free spins with wild reels moving from right to left. The potential of this bonus is great and if during the arrangement of wild reels on 1 + 2 or 2 + 3 reels, the slot issues additional wild symbols, the winning can be very significant. The average winning on this feature is 40-80 bets, although its potential is higher and it is quite possible to get a winning of 100-150 bets.
- The PURPLE HAZE FREE SPINS feature gives from 6 to 12 free spins with the PURPLE HAZE feature which was mentioned earlier. Most spins do not bring significant winnings, but usually, 1-2-3 spins can still be quite successful and give out combinations with a large number of wild symbols. The potential of this bonus is one of the highest and it is possible to win both 100 and 200 bets, but still, the average value is 40-80 bets.
- The LITTLE WING FREE SPINS feature gives out from 6 to 12 free spins with the random issuance feature from 3 to 5 overlapping wild symbols. The potential of this feature is also high and is able to bring big wins. The average win value here is 60-100 bets, although the potential of the bonus allows you to get more.
- Basically, in the bonus game, CROSSTOWN TRAFFIC FREE SPINS and PURPLE HAZE FREE SPINS features are often issued. LITTLE WING FREE SPINS and coins are less common.
- Due to the high potential and the frequent issuance of fairly stable wins, this slot is almost the ideal option when playing with bonus money! The recommended bet margin is from 100 bets. This slot can also be considered when playing with real money, but given the lack of potential for big winnings, not everyone will like it.

Description of the slot machine
The design of the slot is represented with all kinds of flowers, and the playing field is decorated with blooming poppies. Perhaps, in this way, the developers of the slot machine emphasised several small features of the world outlook of the youth of that time, who called themselves the “flowers of life” and expanded their consciousness with drugs. In any case, all this flora looks quite appropriate and gives the apparatus a variety of colours and freshness impressions.
The main highlight here is the musical accompaniment, which consists of Jimi Hendrix`s hits, which demonstrates his masterful handling of the electric guitar. Thematic symbols will awaken nostalgic feelings in the hearts of rock music fans. Cleverly distributed animation effects resemble laser lighting on a concert stage, making the gameplay dynamics and liveliness.
