NetEnt recently released the Guns N’ Roses video slot game in what has to date been the gaming company’s most successful slot launch. The digital entertainment company has now announced that a Jimi Hendrix slot is coming to NetEnt.
NetEnt Rocks Series Introduces Jimi Hendrix Slot
The news about the upcoming Jimi Hendrix slot release was announced at this year’s ICE Totally Gaming 2016. The gaming industry trade show comes with a number of exciting announcements each year. Last year, NetEnt let the world know that Guns N’ Roses was on its way, and this year, the gaming software creator has announced the second in its NetEnt Rocks slot series, the Jimi Hendrix Online Slot.
While the wait for Guns N’ Roses was almost a full year, and it was certainly worth the wait, NetEnt is not keeping its players waiting so long for the Jimi Hendrix Online Slot. Since the slot will be released in April this year, there is already some information about the look and feel, and of course, the sound of the game. The Jimi Hendrix slot game will show Hendrix as an animated figure, however the work that has gone into creating the correct facial expressions will provide an authentic homage to Hendrix.
The new game will be a 3D slot, and will have colorful graphics that have been inspired by 1960s, when Hendrix rose to fame. Hendrix released three albums towards the end of the sixties: Axis: Bold As Love, Are You Experienced, and Electric Ladyland. There will be five of Hendrix’s most famous songs featured in the slot game. Included in the songs are Purple Haze, Little Wing, Foxy Lady, and Crosstown Traffic.
Janle Hendrix and Simon Hammon Comment
Experience Hendrix, L.L.C.’s President and Chief Executive Officer, 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!”
”Jimi Hendrix is indisputably one of the greatest rock stars that ever lived,” said Simon Hammon, the NetEnt Chief Product Officer. “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.”
