Jimi Hendrix Pokie Review
NetEnt have gone all rock and roll in recent times, and having released their Guns ‘n Roses pokie to huge acclaim not so long ago they now present their version of the Jim Hendrix Experience.
Although it’s not clear just how much of a pokie fan Jimi was, there is no question that NetEnt have come up with an excellent pokie in his name. Featuring classic songs, great animation and loads of bonus rounds this will definitely please fans of the guitar maestro.
Jimi Hendrix was a bit of a rule-breaker, but this pokie adopts a traditional 5 x 3 reel layout. Symbols include iconic images redolent of the peace and love era swinging 60s including hearts, eyes, flowers, records and of course images of the great man himself. The graphics are not particularly impressive at first glance, but when the bonus rounds begin this game really kicks on to the next level.
About The Game
Coins Range:0.01 to 2.00
Fee Spins/Multiplier Better:20/No
Red Guitar Re-Spin: when Jimi’s trademark red guitar appears they act as sticky symbols and activate free spins. Every time a spin reveals a new guitar, the reels spin again until finally you find out just how much you’ve won.
Wild Symbol: a head-shot of Mr Hendrix acts as the wild symbol in this game, replacing all symbols except for the Scatters and Red Guitar. When a full sized Hendrix appears to play a few bars of Foxy Lady then extra wild symbols are scattered randomly across the screen.
Scatter Symbol: when you find 3 or more symbols showing a white-clad Hendrix in mid-riff, then you unlock the excellent bonus rounds.
Pick & Click Bonus Round
After revealing the three Scatters anywhere on the reels you are taken to the Pick and Click screen, where you click on a stack of guitar amps to reveal different symbols which will entitle you either to free spins or to a coins award.
The three Free Spin options are named after some of Jimi’s most famous tunes: Little Wings, Crosstown Traffic and (of course) Purple Haze. By revealing three of the appropriate symbols from behind the amps you will unlock one of these three bonus rounds or else a straight award of coins.
Each of the free spin rounds features different bonus extras, so for example during the Crosstown Traffic spins you will be able to use a stacked Wild image of Jimi to boost your chances of winning big. The Purple Haze round is enhanced by randomly scattered wild symbols across the reels.
Jimi Hendrix has continued to attract new fans for decades, and we have a feeling that this new pokie from NetEnt is going to develop a pretty committed fan base of its own. The bonus games elevate this game to something way above the ordinary, and who can resist that Hendrix sound-track to accompany the spinning reels? NetEnt have delivered another top quality title to add to their Rock and Roll Pokie hall of fame.
