NetEnt, the Nasdaq OMX-listed casino entertainment studio, has announced that the second of its NetEnt Rocks trilogy of titles will be the Jimi Hendrix Online Slot. The new game, which was recently unveiled at the ICE Totally Gaming conference in London, is an animated video slot that has been developed entirely in 3D, and is scheduled to be released in April.


The first title in the NetEnt Rocks trilogy was Guns N’ Roses, which was launched last month. That might have seemed like a hard act to follow, but Jimi Hendrix was a giant in the music industry in the late sixties, and his work has influenced a huge number of later musicians, including Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash, Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters and the recently passed Lemmy of Motorhead.

Whilst some younger readers might not be overly familiar with the Jimi Hendrix name, few will have failed to have heard at least a couple of his hits, which included Purple Haze, Foxy Lady and Little Wing. All three of those songs – and two more – are featured in the Jimi Hendrix Online Slot title, and the 3D animations will allow players of the game to enjoy a musical experience that recaptures the atmosphere and spirit of Hendrix in his heyday.

Jimi Hendrix died in 1970, aged just 27, and NetEnt wanted to ensure that the new game pays homage to his music in a way that his family would be happy to endorse. It achieved this by working closely with the Hendrix family and the companies that help to protect his legacy, which is something that will please serious Hendrix fans and casual gamers alike.

‘Jimi Hendrix is indisputably one of the greatest rock stars that ever lived,’ said Simon Hammon, who is Chief Product Officer at NetEnt. ‘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.’

Those partners are equally pleased about the development and upcoming release of the Jimi Hendrix Online Slot. ‘We take enormous pride in the role we play in promoting Jimi’s art and persona,’ said Janle L. Hendrix, who is President and Chief Executive Officer of Experience Hendrix, L.L.C. ‘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!’

As stated earlier, the Jimi Hendrix Online Slot is expected to be playable in April. In the meantime, slots fans who want to pass the time by playing the first title in the NetEnt Rocks trilogy can check out the Guns N’ Roses game at Mr Green Casino.
