Slots Review: Rock with Jimi Hendrix
NetEnt celebrates 20 years of innovations in 2016 and has released a trilogy of video slots called NetEnt Rocks. The first release was the Gun’s N Roses slot, followed by the Jimi Hendrix slot and then last but not least the Motörhead slot. NetEnt has done a good job choosing three different rock themes for these slots. Jimi Hendrix video slot immortalizes the star of the flower power era. The video slot combines different game elements, just like Jimi Hendrix combined musical elements in his innovative style. The game seems simple but it has six bonus rounds, the most entertaining being the Pick & Click feature. You can spin on 5 reels, 3 rows and a total of 20 pay lines while listening to that awesome guitar stuff on the background. Let’s rock!

The slot has a fair number of features besides the base game. There is the Purple Haze Feature, the Red Guitar Re-Spins Feature and the Pick and Click Feature, from which you can get to play Crosstown Traffic Free Spins, Purple Haze Free Spins or Little Wing Free Spins and get coin wins.

Flowers and rocking music
The music is original, what else could we expect. There are five tracks to choose from, but we played them all! The game sounds are also something to mention, especially the Jimi’s voice, when you get a big win. You get to see flowers bloom in the Red Guitar feature, hearts pumping on the screen and Jimi feeling the beat with his guitar. The graphics are simple but sweet.
Jimi Hendrix is absolutely worth playing, and gives good times with all of the bonus features. We appreciate the fact that NetEnt has chosen the themes carefully for their Rocks slots. NetEnt has made a lot of effort to fit the gaming elements, music and sounds as well as the graphics together. The atmosphere takes you back to the days when a flower had more power.
