Jimi Hendrix bonus features
Just like one of his albums would keep you occupied for hours, Jimi’s official slot has plenty of features to keep you engaged. We love how NetEnt has incorporated his songs into the game and theme, and if you’re a true fan you’ll easily recognise some of the names.
In the Jimi Hendrix slot, there’s not one, but three different free spins rounds to trigger:
Crosstown Traffic free spins
Three Crosstown traffic symbols will trigger six free spins, along with wild reels in various locations. The wild reels will move on each spin to give you a different result each time.
Purple Haze free spins
If you land three Purple Haze symbols anywhere on the reels, you’ll be awarded a random number of free spins between six and 12. You’ll also see all symbols of 10 to A transform into wilds.
Little Wing free spins
You can win between six and 12 free spins by finding three Little Wing symbols on the reels. During this round, you’ll also see up to five overlay wilds randomly appear to help you win.
The bonus round comes in the form of a Pick and Click feature, where you’ll have the chance to win one of four prizes. Three scatters on the reels will trigger the feature, and you’ll get to pick from a series of loudspeakers, each hiding one of four symbols. Once you’ve found three of a kind, you’ll win the corresponding prize, which will be either one of the three free spins rounds or a coin win.
Wilds will substitute for other symbols to complete your win… but they also come alive in the Purple Haze feature. Whenever a Purple Haze symbol lands on the first reel, all symbols of 10, J, Q, K and A will be transformed into wilds, including the original symbol that triggered it.
Jimi Hendrix jackpot
Jimi Hendrix is not one of NetEnt’s jackpot slots, but the many features make it a worthy slot to play, with wins of up to 400x your stake up for grabs.
RTP and volatility
With low volatility and a return to player of 96.9%, Jimi Hendrix has become a popular slot amongst a wide range of players. The more frequent wins allow for more excitement, so it’s easy to stay entertained.
Jimi Hendrix on mobile
Jimi didn’t live to enjoy the days of mobile, but his slot sure did – and NetEnt has produced a stunning mobile version.
