The casino slot game has come a long, long way from the giant halls of Vegas or Monte Carlo with their actual slot ‘machines’. NetEnt’s amazing Jimi Hendrix slot for online and mobile is perhaps the best current example of this evolution.
Before hearing more from Jimi himself, let’s check out where to find his namesake slot:
In order to play this rockin’ new slot title, you’ll have to play at a site that is powered by NetEnt or that features its games. There are many casinos to choose from, but Wink Slots is one of your best options.
Good to Know
In the Ts&Cs for Wink’s offers you will find that there is a wagering requirement of 30X for your bonus including your deposit, and some other rules.
Wink runs on the powerful Dragonfish system, by Cassava (brought to you by the 888 Group). This means that other top game providers such as NetEnt, who gives us the Jimi slot, are offered right alongside high quality Dragonfish titles.
NetEnt takes you on a ride into the images and music of Jimi Hendrix’s career in this game. To be honest, we find that there is somewhat of a disjoint between the Hippie philosophy mixed up with a rock music legend slot theme.
Jimi himself probably wasn’t a big punter — way too busy perfecting his sound at Electric Ladyland and playing awesome concerts. The Jimi Hendrix slot RTP (96.91%) is not bad, but this is not a bigtime jackpot game.
Rather, to fully appreciate this title you will have to:
NetEnt’s homage to Jimi Hendrix features just 20 paylines for its 5 reels. Its gameplay and bonus triggers may not seem as focused or rational as other top mid-variance (not too risky) slots. But somehow we think these details fit his theme.
If you absolutely love the idea of playing a rock-inspired slot, then you will probably want to check out Elvis at 777.com as well as at Wink Slots. This game is made by WMS (Williams Interactive) and it matches the grandeur of The King with a whopping 80 paylines, which makes sense.
If your rock’n’roll slot’s gotta have a guitar in there prominently, then we suggest you try the NetEnt Gunz N Roses title as well (hint: this one has a groovy feature letting you pick your own tunes).
We’ll wind up our Jimi Hendrix online slot review by celebrating the fact that it is part of a boom in leading name themes about celebrities and even music.
Yet, gambling is not something you will normally associate with the Hippies’ ‘peace, love and rock’n’roll’ attitude to life. And, if you don’t have much love for Jimi, then the chances are you probably won’t have much use for this game.
