America’s greatest and the world’s most iconic guitar player Jimi Hendrix is still leaving his lasting impressions in a whole new light, as the late great rock star is now immortalised in his very own online slot machine.
This game is an official release and beautifully celebrates the life and work of the musical artist who died in September 1970.
Continuing to innovative in new forms
There are many ways to celebrate the life of a past icon, in Jimi’s case, you have your presentation boxsets, new remastered songs, and even a movie. The next step is to turn your art into a game. This is not new to the world of music, bands like Kiss, Megadeth, Dolly Parton and even Guns ’n Roses have casino players spinning their way to a life-changing fortune inside of sites that can be found in places such as https://www.onlinecasinonewzealand.nz/.
The music and the artist’s ideas and belief system play a big role in the game from Net Entertainment. It is fantastically 70s and psychedelic. The whole game is animated but would have been lovely if it were possible to integrate live video footage of Hendrix’s performances. But you do indeed get to listen to four of his tracks. Crosstown Traffic, Little Wings, Foxy Lady and Voodoo Child.
If you were someone totally unaware of who Jimi was, these are the perfect songs from his catalogue to be introduced to. It is also a nice thought that his work is reaching into a new market and possibly being discovered by fans in the making.
Jimi Hendrix Online Slot
The game begins with the animated Jimi Hendrix playing a classic mix of Little Wings and Voodoo Child.
The symbols of the game are your typical 70s icons, flower power and peace signs joined on the reels by records and guitars. To a degree it is very trippy to see all this. The animation used by NetEnt is immaculate and really does capture the perfect mood for what Jimi was all about and stood for.
The Jimi Hendrix Online Slot is a 3 x 4 grid game with a purple haze bonus feature. This game includes Red Spin, Pick and Click, Red Guitar games where you can win a free spins and there is the Crosstown traffic bonus feature, These touches are perfect for the interest of fans, and it’s now clear why this game is doing so well out in New Zealand.
Is it odd to play such a game? It depends on how much the idea of an icon should be cherished. In no way is putting Jimi into a slot game in bad taste, in fact, it is pretty rock ‘n’ roll to go against convention. Ultimately, it’s a bit of fun and as any game of this kind should not be taken seriously and enjoyed for what it is.
If it’s good enough for Dolly Parton, then it should be something we celebrate and enjoy. Other releases by NetEnt include Ozzy Osbourne which dropped in October 2019.
