Jimi Hendrix Purple Haze featureJimi Hendrix wild: The Jimi Hendrix head shot wild icon substitutes for all other symbols (except the scatter icon) to complete any possible winning combinations.

Our verdict

While the animations and graphics of this title aren’t as dynamic as some of Net Entertainment’s other real money slot game, the design certainly reminds us of some of the artwork of Jimi Hendrix’s classic album covers; in fact, the older style design lends itself perfectly to this game.

The Jimi Hendrix songs and guitar riffs in the background provide great atmosphere, and the epic spread of bonus features is truly something to admire from Net Entertainment. The ability to bet anywhere between $0.20 to $200 per spin also makes this one of the most versatile online video slots around, suitable for casual punters and high stakes gamblers alike. We rate the game 4.5./5.

The Jimi Hendrix mobile slot game is just one of three high-voltage titles in the NetEnt Rocks collection. Click the links to check out our reviews of the Guns N Roses and Motorhead video slots.
