Jimmy Hendrix Slot Unveiled at ICE

The ICE Totally Gaming 2016 is currently taking place in London. NetEnt has used this opportunity to unveil its upcoming slot, the Jimi Hendrix Online Slot, another addition to the NetEnt Rocks series. The slot will be released in April this year.

The slot game is an animated video slot that shows realistic animations of Jimi Hendrix in which his facial expressions have been well captured. The game will come with colorful 3D graphics, and will feature five of Jimi’s popular songs. The songs will include Purple Haze, Little Wing, and Foxy Lady, amongst others.

Players are currently rocking to the Guns N’ Roses slot game that was released last month, and has been the most successful slot launch that NetEnt has had so far. NetEnt has already announced that the next NetEnt Rocks series slot, after the Jimi Hendrix slot game, will be released in September. The company has not yet released any information about what will be the third rock-themed slot game.

Simon Hammon, the Chief Product Officer at NetEnt, enthused: “Jimi Hendrix is indisputably one of the greatest rock stars that ever lived. It is an honor and a huge responsibility to be granted the rights to create a Jimi Hendrix branded product. Working together with the Hendrix family and their companies Experience Hendrix, L.L.C and Authentic Hendrix, LLC on this game will help make our NetEnt Rocks series one of the most desirable product offerings available.”

The President and Chief Executive Officer of Experience Hendrix, L.L.C., Janle L. Hendrix, said: “We take enormous pride in the role we play in promoting Jimi’s art and persona. Because of that, we are extremely selective in who we partner with. NetEnt, we feel, has an understanding of the importance and we’re thrilled to work with them. The prospects are exciting!”
