NetEnt this week at ICE Totally Gaming have announced part two of their NetEnt Rocks trilogy.
Later this year they will be releasing a massive Jimi Hendrix slot to follow up their Guns N’ Roses slot machine. Fingers crossed this second major release is less flawed than their rather disappointing GNR slot.
Stay tuned for more news as it happens…
Update: NetEnt have released the trailer for the Jimi Hendrix slot which is set for release on April 21st.
From looking at the video it appears that they have stuck with the same idea as Guns N Roses which I have to say is a shame. I am not a fan of either artist but I really would have liked to have seen photo quality slot rather than the drawn style. I just don’t think it fits with the subject matter they have chosen. But that is just my opinion.
We’ll learn more once the slot is officially released for testing.
Jimi Hendrix slot review
It is April 21st and Jimi Hendrix has finally arrived. Thankfully there wasn’t the big hoo-haa that accompanied the release of the Guns N Roses slot because I have to say, this new slot is a bore.
Before I get all critical I will say that I’ve had some good fortune whilst testing this slot out. A good number of wins in the 50 to 60 times stake region and I’ve cashed out a healthy profit. But that doesn’t detract from the overall disappointment.
The base game is weak, very standard with even the Red Guitar sticky wins not really adding much excitement. The random wilds thing is also pretty dull.
The graphics and animations are not what we would expect from NetEnt and really don’t do the legendary Mr Hendrix and justice, whilst the actual gameplay itself seems pretty clunky and amateurish.
It is the feature rounds though that are the most disappointing. First of all NetEnt will you stop adding a bloody coin win to the feature pick options. If we have sat through 300 spins to get a single feature then we don’t want a crappy coin win. We play these types of slots exactly to get an exciting set of free spins or an interesting bonus game. A coin win just feels like a complete rip-off.
As for the free spins rounds… well there are three different types but they all feel very similar and even though the pay outs are reasonable, there’s just something missing. There’s no oomph in there. No real originality or excitement. It just all feels very very flat.
I’m sorry NetEnt, you know we love you but you have really missed the boat so far in 2016 with some really mediocre affairs. Give us something new, something daring, something dark, slow and adult themed. Scare us. Build up the excitement for us, make us really want to put in a 2 hour shift on a slot and make that session worth our while. Entertain us.
Here we are introducing another smash hit from the guys over at NetEnt. This 5 reel, 3 row video slot game that is dedicated to the man who took a right-handed Fender Stratocaster and played it upside down, Jimi Hendrix. The game includes high grade 3D graphics and features Free spins, Wild substitutions, Wild transformation and a Pick and Click feature where free spins can be snapped up.
