Swedish internet betting software developer Net Ent has announced that they will be releasing a new video slot based on the life and times of musician Jimi Hendrix.
The Jimi Hendrix slot will be a 5 reel affair and will feature a 3D version of the legendary guitar player. The game will have five different Hendrix songs, including "Purple Haze", "Crosstown Traffic", and more. The game's features have not been revealed, but a release date of April 2016 has been given.
Commenting on the new game Net Ent Chief Product Officer Simon Hammon said, "Jimi Hendrix is indisputably one of the greatest rock stars that ever has lived. It is an honour 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."
Experience Hendrix LLC CEO Janie L. Hendrix added: "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!"
