Net Entertainment has announced that it will be following up the launch of its hugely successful Guns N’ Roses slot with a brand new music-themed title, this time based on the iconic 60s rock legend Jimi Hendrix.
Unveiled at this week’s ICE exhibition in London, the latest addition to the NetEnt Rocks catalogue is set to be released in April (the 21st) with the software giant saying that it’s “determined to develop a fitting and authentic homage to Hendrix.”
Just like the recent Guns ‘N Roses release, the new Hendrix-inspired slot will feature full 3D graphics as well as a selection of the guitar maestro’s most iconic songs including “Foxy Lady,” “Purple Haze,” “Crosstown Traffic” and “Little Wing”.
“Jimi Hendrix is indisputably one of the greatest rock stars that ever lived. It is an honour and a huge responsibility to be granted the rights to create a Jimi Hendrix branded product” said Simon Hammon, Chief Product Officer of 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.”
NetEnt said that its development team have used 10 different morph targets to create “hundreds of unique facial expressions” that were then modified by hand for “added realism” in the game’s graphics.
“We take enormous pride in the role we play in promoting Jimi’s art and persona,” said Janle L. Hendrix, President & CEO 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!”
NetEnt also confirmed that a third, Motörhead, will be joining Guns N’ Roses and Jimi Hendrix as part of the NetEnt Rocks Trilogy – this slot is scheduled to go live on the 22nd of September (2016).
In the meantime, you can play Guns N’ Roses at various online casinos – I recommend ComeOn Casino who welcome Online-Slot.co.uk readers with £5 completely free. Then there’s an exclusive 100% first deposit bonus up to £200 – the standard bonus is up to £25 so the Online-Slot.co.uk offer is substantially better.
They have 350 slots at present with games from Net Entertainment, Microgaming, Play ‘N Go and NextGen Gaming. You also have titles from Ash Gaming and Playtech via their Vegas tab. Some of the slots I recommend include the exclusive NetEnt Bollywood Story, Playtech’s White King, Ash Gaming’s Full Moon Fortunes and Microgaming’s Immortal Romance.
