Jimi Sings Freedom
The Guns n’ Roses slot launch from Net Ent has been a big success, according to industry sources. It’s the first in a series of rock out stadium slot games that will be followed up with the Jimi Hendrix slot and a Motörhead slot.
Who knows, we might even see a Motörhead blackjack variant with the Ace of Spades as the backing track. On volume 11 of course. Net Ent will also be launching a Football Champions Cup Slot in May in time for the 2016 Euros.
The games have all been developed in the land of meatballs and the midsummer night parties by Swedish slot developer NetEnt, who are famous for their innovative approach to game development (read our article on how to play 5 reel slots if you are new to these kinds of games.) They have certainly shaken things up a bit with games like the Dracula slot and the Gonzo’s Quest slot machine. They’ve had market incumbents Playtech and Microgaming looking over their shoulder for quite a while now.
No/one has really done a music based slot before, and given that live music is such a big industry, it seems like a clever bet. The Guns n’ Roses slot cleverly brings in the crown when you win, and they’ve been hard at work on the features to come up with some fresh ideas, as they are famous for. Try our free Guns n Roses slot and give it a whirl to see what we mean.
NetEnt is is listed on NASDAQ Stockholm (NET–B) and employs 700 people in Stockholm, Malta, Kiev, Gothenburg and Gibraltar.
Jimi Hendrix Slot
As much as we love the Guns n Roses slot, we can´t claim to be big fans of their music. We´ve been struggling to select a track from the slots playlist that doesn´t drive us nuts. But the Jimi Hendrix slot? That one, we can´t wait for. We are hoping for All Along the Watchtower (I know it´s a Bob Dylan song, but Jimi does a pretty good version), Hey Joe, Foxey Lady, Crosstown Traffic, The Wind Cries Mary…..so may good songs to choose from. They´ll have to do 2 slots for Jimi.
What about the sound track for Motorhead? Ace of Spades of course, then Mean Machine, Overkill, (We Are) The Road Crew maybe?
Did you know that Lemmy was a roadie for Jimi Hendrix in the 60s before he became the Motörhead legend?
Lemmy said of him”….Jimi was a really nice guy. And very courteous. If a woman came into the room, he’d shoot to his feet and get a chair out for her. He was old fashioned like that. Good manners don’t cost nothing.”
