Relive the Summer of Love or experience it for the first time when you play the psychedelic Jimi Hendrix Online Slot. It’s part of the epic NetEnt Rocks series of casino slot games, and it’ll change the way you see online casino games forever – just like Hendrix himself changed rock music for good with his psychedelic guitar playing. Wild substitutions, wild transformations, respins, pick-and-click features, and a killer soundtrack – what more could a red-blooded, music-loving slot player desire? Let’s find out how to get “experienced”!

Game overview

The Jimi Hendrix slot pays homage to the guitar legend, and features some of his most famous songs including “Foxey Lady,” “Crosstown Traffic,” “Little Wing” and the immortal “Purple Haze.”

The game plays out on a 5x3 grid of psychedelic rock symbols with 20 fixed paylines. The low-paying symbols are the playing cards A, K, Q, J and 10, while the medium-value symbols are flowers, hearts, peace symbols, eyes and vinyl records. Hendrix’s white and red Fender Stratocaster guitars are the premium symbols, while the wild is the voodoo child himself.

The theoretical RTP (return to player) is 97% and the maximum possible jackpot is 80,000 coins.

Gamers looking to play entertaining online slots for real money will find a rocking base game with bonus rounds that’ll make you want to cheer. Two of them are triggered randomly during the base game, while the “Pick Me” bonus game offers four different spins on Hendrix’s iconic music – along with multiple chances to win.

The game is compatible with desktop, mobile and tablet devices, so you can take Jimi with you wherever, whenever. What’s more, the 5x3 layout makes it one of the most mobile-friendly of all online slots.

How to play

Start the game by deciding on your coin value and bet level. This determines your bet amount. Bets range from 20c to $200 per spin, with 10 bet levels and a coin range from 0.01 up to 1. Then press the spin button to get going.

The Jimi Hendrix slot’s 20 fixed paylines start from reel 1 and run from left to right. Land 2 or more premium symbols, or 3 or more matching symbols across any payline to form a winning combination.

The autoplay function lets you spin automatically from 10 to 1,000 times, and it’s fully customisable. You can use the advanced settings to stop autoplay on a win, when your balance goes up or down by the amount you choose, or when you trigger the Pick and Click feature.

Keep an eye out for the red guitar – it’s the most valuable symbol, because it pays 20x your stake for 5 in combination. That said, it’s the Jimi Hendrix symbol that offers the highest base game payout – a combination of 5 at maximum bet pays out 400 coins.

Graphics

Jimi Hendrix is one of the most kick-ass online slots you’ll ever experience, with graphics that deliver the complete psychedelic experience. The action “unreels” against an open stage in the desert under a full moon. The symbols are authentically decorated in the style of the flower-power era. Jimi strums his guitar when the scatter appears on the reels, and flowers bloom on the screen when you land a winning combination as Jimi celebrates with his trademark “look out” and “oh yeah.”

Features

The Jimi Hendrix slot has two bonus features in the base game, and a Pick and Click bonus game with multiple benefits.

Landing the Jimi Hendrix Purple Haze symbol in the first row triggers the Purple Haze bonus feature – Jimi sprays a purple haze across the screen and the low-value symbols turn wild.

Four or more red guitars on the screen trigger the Red Guitar Respins feature, which continues as long as you keep hitting red guitars. The more red guitars appear, the more winnings you can potentially reel in.

To fire up the Pick and Click bonus game, you need 3 Jimi Hendrix scatter symbols to land on reels 3, 4 and 5. Stacks of animated sound equipment appear on the screen with spots for you to pick and potentially win free spins and coins.

Collect 3 coin “win” icons and you’ll be rewarded with a multiplier of 8x to 30x your stake. Three Crosstown Traffic free spins symbols get you 6 free spins with changing wild reels. Pick 3 Purple Haze free spins symbols for 6 to 12 free spins, where the low-value symbols are wild. Three of the Little Wing free spins symbols (which look like blue guitars) will take you even higher – you get 6 to 12 free spins, and 3 to 5 wild overlays appearing randomly across the reels.

Bonuses and jackpots

The Jimi Hendrix slot is medium to high variance, with most payouts happening in the base game. The most lucrative bonus feature is Purple Haze – all low-value symbols are wild, so just one free spin can land you up to 5 wilds. This could pay out up to 400x your stake.

It’s interesting to note that when this slot launched in 2016, it soon made some players very happy. A New Jersey player bet $5 and won a $100,760 jackpot on June 14, 2016. Less than two weeks later, another player from NJ won $105,200 with a $5 spin. Appropriately enough, the Garden State was also where the young Hendrix cut his teeth as a guitar player. No doubt he’d have approved of these two record-breaking wins.
