There is a purple haze in the VSO office today as we are all a buzz with the news that next two video slot games in the ‘NetEnt rocks’ trilogy series have been announced! We are all pretty big rock fans and the office pool was laying strong odds that one of the greatest rock legends Jimi Hendrix 10 J Q simply had to feature in this series, though the last game in the series being based on Motorhead is surprising – albeit in a good way for fans of that group, including one very excited review writer!
Netent took 2016 by storm with the release of the first game in the batch, their official collaboration video slot ‘Guns N Roses’ which has set a new standard for online slot machines with its video sequences, music and player interaction. We believe that feature wise the next two slots should follow the same format so expect a 5-reel, 3-row slot with very similar gameplay and bonuses to the Roses slot already released.

Netent have kept the specifics under wraps but we know there is a good chance we are going to see the same gameplay mechanics that were used in the first of this slots trilogy, K A J if you haven’t played that game yet (Why not!?) here is a quick recap for you:
Legend Spins: These randomly give players 3 re-spins with Stacked Wilds available
Solo Multiplier: This randomly multiplies winning combinations from x4 to x10
Encore Free Spins: 10 free spins at a time including a band member themed Stacked Wild
Crowd Pleaser Bonus game: Players make feature pick selections resulting in a variety of possible coin wins.
Bonus Features in Jimi Hendrix
When it comes to bonus features, the Jimi Hendrix slot has a total of 6 bonus features. There are 2 in the base game and 4 coming from the all-important Pick and Click feature. In the latter, 3 of them give you free spins.
Red Guitar Re-spin feature
First up is the Red Guitar Re-spins 10 J K feature which is triggered by getting 4 or more Red Guitar symbols anywhere on the reels. These remain on the reels and act as overlay symbols during each re-spin.
You will continue to get re-spins as long as new Red Guitar symbols land on the reels. It only ends when no new Red Guitar symbols appear during a new re-spin. This can lead to a screen full of the highest value symbol.
Purple Haze feature
Then you have the Purple Haze feature which is triggered when the Purple Haze symbol lands on the 1st reel. Then symbols 10, J, Q, K and A transform into wild symbols for that spin. Additionally, the Purple Haze symbol acts as a wild to further enhance your winning potential.
The encore is the Pick and Click feature which is played when 3 Jimi Hendrix scatter symbols appear on reels 3, 4 and 5. There are 4 different bonus features to activate. You click on the loudspeakers that can give you 4 varieties of symbols. When you collect 3 of the same symbol, you will player the corresponding feature. Here’s what they offer:
- Coin Win feature: awards a cash prize of between 8 and 30 times Q A K your total stake
- Crosstown Traffic Free Spins feature: you get 6 free spins with wild reels appearing on different reels for every free spin. On the 1st free spin, a wild reel appears on reel 5. Reels 4 and 5 are wild on the 2nd free spin. On the 3rd free spin, reels 3 and 4 are wild. For the 4th free spin, reels 2 and 3 are wild reels. Lastly, reels 1 and 2 are wild reels for the 6th free spin.
- Purple Haze Free Spins feature: you are awarded between 6 and 12 free spins. Like the Purple Haze feature in the base game, symbols 10, J, Q, K and A become wild symbols for the duration of the feature.
- Little Wings Free Spins feature: you will get between 6 and 12 free spins. Between 3 and 5 overlay wilds appear randomly on the reels for each free spin.
