It's the day we've all been waiting for. The trailer for NetEnt's Jimi Hendrix Mobile Slot has finally arrived. Landing on Friday, the video shows some healthy clips of gameplay as well as the overall design of the reel. In addition to this we get to hear some epic music by the musician himself. This is just a taste of the awesomeness we're expecting to receive come 21st April. If we weren't excited before than we certainly are now. And here's why you should be.
What We Know
Details about the second installment of NetEnt's rock slot trilogy (the first installment being Guns ‘N Roses) have been drip-fed over the last few months and we have been following them carefully. Now we can see the slot in action for the first time in the teaser video!
Here's what we already know about the Jimi Hendrix Slot:
- Release date: 21st April 2016
- Jimi Hendrix hits such as Foxy lady, Crosstown Traffic and Purple Haze
- 5×3 reel/19 paylines
- Free Spin Features
- 2 bonus features in the base game
We had a pretty good idea what sort of things will feature in this game and much of it has been confirmed by the trailer. For instance, we could gather by the Guns ‘N Roses slots that much of the bands' iconography will be used for the wild/scatter symbols.
This same mentality has been applied to the new Hendrix slot as well as the famous soundtrack which is sure to make you a Hendrix fan even if you're not already.
What we didn't expect, however was the cartoon-ish design of the reel. This is true to Henrix's aesthetics and we are sure that it will not affect enjoyment but it does seem a little simple. We hope it looks better when the actual game comes out.
Below is NetEnt's video put here for your convenience. Go on, give it a watch. We'll guarantee that you'll love it.
Crazy, right? As you can see, the overall feel of the slot is psychedelic and dream-like. We should treasure the idea that NetEnt stuck with what made Hendrix famous besides his music.
The Official Jimi Hendrix slot will be out 21st April so mark your calendars and get ready to rock. In the mean time, feel free to enjoy NetEnt's other slots including their widely-distributed Guns ‘N Roses slot which should satisfy you until this title comes out.
And as soon as the Hendrix slot is released, you can be sure we'll review it to see if it's worth playing. We're pretty sure it's going to be worthy of NetEnt's Wall of Fame.
