How to play Jimi Hendrix Video Slot
The Jimi Hendrix online slot features some classic Hendrix songs with Crosstown Traffic, Little Wing and Purple Haze being available to be played. This adds to the enjoyment of the game and helps immerse you into the fun of the slot.
Initially, you should set your preferred stake and level to something you can comfortably afford. Set your coin in the bottom-right and bet level on the bottom-left. As there are 20 fixed pay lines, the lowes cost per spin is 20p at coin value 0.01 and bet level 1. At the opposite end of the scale you will be high rolling at £200 per spin with the coin value set at 1.00 on bet level 10.
When you’re ready, spin the reels using the circular pastel green coloured button located in the centre of the control panel. You will also see an Auto Play button and a Max Bet button to instantly bet the maximum. The auto-play feature allows you to set anything between 10 and 1,000 spins.
There is a total of 6 features with this video slot with two of the features being activated during the main game. If the Purple Haze symbol lands on the first reel then the Purple Haze feature is activated. Then any standard symbols being 10, J, Q, K or A will be transformed into Wild symbols for that spin only.
The next feature you are looking to achieve is getting 4 or more Red Guitar symbols which will activate the Re-Spin feature. The reels are then re-spun and if you get more red guitars the reels keep spinning until no more red guitars appear. Wins are paid during each spin as awards are won.
If when you play you get 3 scatter symbols on reels 3, 4 and 5 then you will activate the Pick and Click feature. You will be presented with one of 4 prize games which will be one of the following; a coin win, Crosstown Traffic Free Spins, Purple Haze Free Spins or Little Wings Free Spins. The game that you get will be based on you picking three of the same symbols from a tower of loudspeakers. Once you match three symbols, the corresponding mini-game will start.
A coin win will see you receiving between x8 and x30 of your initial bet as long as you achieved three coins. Crosstown Traffic sees you getting 6 free spins with wild symbols and Purple Haze Free Spins awards you between 6 and 12 free spins with wild symbols. Finally, the Little Wings Free Spins gets you between 6 and 12 free spins with between 3 and 5 overlayed wilds.
There are several other options on the bottom-left. The question mark opens a help screen that gives you information about the slot. The settings allow you to turn off/on quick spin, keayboard control and remove the intro screen.
