There is a purple haze in the VSO office today as we are all a buzz with the news that next two video slot games in the ‘NetEnt rocks’ trilogy series have been announced! We are all pretty big rock fans and the office pool was laying strong odds that one of the greatest rock legends Jimi Hendrix simply had to feature in this series, though the last game in the series being based on Motorhead is surprising – albeit in a good way for fans of that group, including one very excited review writer!
Netent took 2016 by storm with the release of the first game in the batch, their official collaboration video slot ‘Guns N Roses’ which has set a new standard for online slot machines with its video sequences, music and player interaction. We believe that feature wise the next two slots should follow the same format so expect a 5-reel, 3-row slot with very similar gameplay and bonuses to the Roses slot already released.
Jimi Hendrix should need no introduction as an artist so we can safely forgo that history lesson and look at the expected game theme. The existing ‘NetEnt Rocks’ game lets players select from one of 5 tracks to enjoy while playing the slot, we hope to see the same in the new game and have a strong hunch ‘All along the watchtower’ will be heard in the rooms of many online casino players in the near future.
Live video concert footage was also a stand out part of the first game in the series and we see no reason for it not to be included here, what will differ for certain is the reel symbols, given the band members form the higher value icons in the Guns N Roses slot and Hendrix is primarily known for his solo work it will be interesting to see how NetEnt factor that in to the design.
Netent have kept the specifics under wraps but we know there is a good chance we are going to see the same gameplay mechanics that were used in the first of this slots trilogy, if you haven’t played that game yet (Why not!?) here is a quick recap for you:
We can’t wait, no point denying it the anticipation in the office for the full release of this new online pokie is massive! The first game in the series set a new standard for gaming and is forcing other game providers to keep up with the advance of technology and features available. Expect to see this addition at the biggest NetEnt casinos very soon, check out our review section for a list of the best places to play it!
