The gameplay is accompanied by 3 well-known hits by Jimi – Little Wing, Foxy Lady, and Voodoo Child.
As with most online slots, the game’s reels comprise two sets of symbols – low-value and high-value symbols. The game’s low-value symbols include the standard playing card symbols 10, J, Q, K, and A, given in ascending order, all designed with a certain Jimi twist.
The high-value set of symbols includes game specific symbols that start with an eye, green flower, vinyl record, heart, and peace sign. All these symbols award certain prize depending on the number of symbols that are landed.
Jimi Hendrix online slot has additional game symbols that comprise Jimi Hendrix himself, and a selection of his guitars. Jimi is the game’s Wild symbol which substitutes for all other symbols, except for the Scatter symbols. The white guitar scatter is the lowest paying of these three symbols, followed by Jimi’s red guitar, and finally, the highest paying symbol is the Jimi Hendrix Wild.
How To Play Jimi Hendrix Slot
As with most online slots, Jimi Hendrix online slot from NetEnt is very straightforward to play since all buttons are located at the bottom of the screen. Before pressing the Spin button – round button with circular inverted arrows at the bottom centre of the screen, – you need to set the bet level and coin value.
The game has a bet level that ranges from 1 to 10 and a selection of coin values that include €0.01, €0.02, €0.05, €0.10, €0.20, €0.50, and €1.00 as the slot’s highest coin value. By combining these two options, we get the minimum and maximum bet which are €0.20 and €200.00 per spin, respectively.
Another way to place your bet is to click the MAX BET button on the right of the SPIN button. This button enables you to automatically play with the highest bet level for the selected coin size. So, before clicking MAX BET, make sure to set the coin size because the reels start spinning as soon as you click MAX BET.
The AUTOPLAY feature is used to play a pre-set number of spins automatically without clicking SPIN repeatedly. By clicking the selected number of spins, the reels start spinning automatically and the remaining number of spins are displayed. This feature can be stopped at any given time simply by pressing the STOP button.

Pick and Click
This Jimi Hendrix online slot feature is triggered with scatters landed on reel 3, 4, or 5. Loudspeakers will pop up on the screen and you are supposed to click on them to reveal the prize they hold. Here, you can make winnings in cash prizes or in gold coin win.
Landing three gold coins will get you a multiplier which pays out from 8x to 30x of the initial stake.
This free-spins feature awards you with only 6 free spins, but more benefits are found in the wild reels. Each of the 6 free spins will give you a certain number of wild reels on certain reels.
