The most talented guitar player ever to walk this earth is immortalized in an online pokie game.
NetEnt entrainment, which is well known, respected, and awarded for its contribution to the iGaming world, has thought fit to start a trend of creating music legend-based pokie games.
They started with a tribute to Motorhead before moving on to Guns N’ Roses and now maybe the most prominent legend of all, Jimi Hendrix.
The game’s theme can only be described as a lovechild between flower power and Woodstock and has produced some exciting results.
Love or hate the style, it’s been beneficial in making this game unbelievably popular since its launch in April 2016.
Selecting an icon like Jimi Hendrix as the star of your new game means that thousands upon thousands of players will undoubtedly enjoy the theme. Here you’ll find peace symbols, flowers, and hearts from the tree-hugging ’60s, records, various guitars, and the face of Mr. Hendrix himself as the Purple Haze wild symbol.
The light color scheme could use some brightness, but the sense of the 60s, when Jimi Hendrix was at his peak, is extensively represented here and should take some players back to the good ol’ days.
At Yako Casino NZ, you can experience this fantastic pokie game, enjoy the music, and even win some real money.
When loading the game, you are treated to a unique and entertaining intro that features a short animation of Jimi Hendrix playing Foxy Lady under the pale moonlight. Hearing that guitar riff immediately excites you, and you know that beautiful 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 the names of the bonus features you can unlock.
Rock ‘n Roll… and Win
The Jimi Hendrix pokie game presents you with five reels, three 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.
You’ll also find music records, hearts, flowers, and peace signs among the usual 10, J, Q, K, and A symbols, producing winnings ranging from $5 to $150. Add some guitar symbols in the mix, and those winnings could go up to $400. The face of the 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 five reels could result in winnings of up to 400 times your stake 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 also a range of bonus features available in this game, which will keep things interesting.
Red Guitar Respins
Finding four or more Red Guitar symbols anywhere on the screen will unlock this feature, granting 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.
If you are fortunate enough to find a Purple Haze symbol on the first reel, it will transform all 10 J, K, Q, K, and a logo on the screen into wild symbols that guarantee a win.
Pick and Click
This is not just one feature but many. Find 3 scatter symbols anywhere on the screen, and you’ll be presented with several loudspeakers that hide four characters. Click on the speakers to reveal the characters underneath and pair 3 of the same to unlock one of the following games represented by those symbols.
This feature, unlocked when finding three coin symbols, will generate a winning multiplier ranging from 8x to 30x.
Crosstown Traffic Free Spins
Unlock this game to receive six free spins. During these spins, you’ll also receive wild symbols on specific reels. The wild symbol will appear on the 5th reel with your first spin.
The chances of winning with a wild symbol right at the end are rather slim but should you win, it’ll be significant. On your following 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, the 10, J, Q, K, and A symbols are transformed into wilds during these spins.
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, the software provider that brings all the fun to the online casino experience, has brought us another gem with their Jimi Hendrix pokie game. The graphics, music, and sound effects represent the game’s theme, and the bonus features add a lot of variety to the game. NetEntertainment is well known for making top-quality pokie games; here, they’ve made no exception.
Jimi Hendrix pokie is playable in all significant 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 excellent, 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. You can turn the sound off, but with a music-inspired game, that is the last thing you should want to do.
This rocking pokie can be found at several online casinos in NZ. Enjoy!
