Selecting an icon like Jimi Hendrix as the star of your new game means that the theme will undoubtedly be enjoyed by thousands upon thousands of players. Here you’ll find peace symbols, flowers and hearts from the tree hugging 60’s as well as records, various guitars and the face of Mr. Hendrix himself as the Purple Haze wild symbol. The light colour scheme could use some brightness but the sense of the 60’s, the period when Jimi Hendrix was at his peak, is greatly represented here and should take some players back to the good ol’ days.
When loading the game you are treated to a unique and entertaining intro which features a short animation of Jimi Hendrix playing Foxy Lady under the pale moonlight. Hearing that guitar riff immediately gets you excited and you just know that good things are to follow. While playing you are treated to even more of Jimi Hendrix’s greatest hits including Crosstown Traffic, Purple Haze and Little Wing which are also the names of the bonus features you can unlock.
Rock ‘n Roll… and Win
The Jimi Hendrix pokie game presents you with 5 reels, 3 lines and 20 pay lines. Bets start at £0.20 for the one who errs on the side of caution and can go all the way to £200.
Among the usual 10, J, Q, K and A symbols you’ll also find music records, hearts, flowers and peace signs among others that will produce winnings ranging from £5 to £150. Add some guitar symbols in the mix and those winnings could go up to £400. The face of Jimi Hendrix casino game acts as the wild symbol and can complete any broken winning line.
£80 000 Jackpot available
Managing to find a wild symbol on all 5 reels could result in winnings of up to 400 times your stake when combined with the various multipliers available in the game. With max bets of £200 this could result in a jackpot of £80 000.
Apart from the enormous jackpot, there is a also range of bonus features available in this game which will definitely keep things interesting.
Red Guitar Respins
Finding 4 or more Red Guitar symbols anywhere on the screen will unlock this feature which grants you a free spin. The Red Guitar symbols remain in place during this spin and act as overlay symbols. Should you receive another Red Guitar during your free spin, you’ll be rewarded with one more spin and so on until no new Red Guitar symbols appear.
Should you be fortunate enough to find a Purple Haze symbol on the first reel it will transform all 10, J, K, Q , K and A symbols on the screen to wild symbols which should almost guarantee you a win.
Pick and Click
This is not actually just one feature but many. Find 3 scatter symbols anywhere on the screen and you’ll be presented with several loudspeakers which hide 4 different symbols. Click on the speakers to reveal the symbols underneath and pair 3 of the same to unlock one of the following games represented by those symbols.
This feature, unlocked when finding 3 coin symbols will generate a winning multiplier ranging from 8x to 30x.
Crosstown Traffic Free Spins
Unlock this game to receive 6 free spins. During these spins you’ll also receive wild symbols on specific reels. With your first spin the wild symbol will appear on the 5th reel. The chances of winning with a wild symbol right at the end is rather slim but should you win, it’ll definitely be big. On your next spin things will get easier though as this time it will generate a wild symbol on both the 4th and 5th reels, followed by the 3rd and 4th, 2nd and 3rd, 1st and 2nd and finally only the first.
Purple Haze Free Spin
Purple Haze makes another appearance here and rewards you with 6-12 free spins. As before, during these spins the 10, J, Q, K and A symbols are transformed into wilds.
Little Wing Free Spin
Another bonus feature that unlocks 6-12 free spins but this time you’ll also receive 3 to 5 overlay wilds on every spin.
NetEntertainment has brought us another gem with their Jimi Hendrix pokie game. The graphics, music and sound effects represent the theme of the game rather well and the bonus features add a lot of variety to the game. NetEntertainment is well known for making top quality pokie games and here they’ve made no exception. Jimi Hendrix pokie is playable in all major web browsers and can also be played using a mobile device, although, the small size of the game on screen makes it feel like it was designed with a mobile platform in mind.
The music, although amazing could also be a negative point, one of the few to mention here. Listening to Jimi shred his guitar once more will no doubt fill your heart with electricity but after an hour of hearing the same riffs you might get annoyed. Obviously you can turn the sound off but with a music inspired game that is the last thing you should want to do.
