NetEnt to Launch New Rock Legend Pokie
Swedish casino software provider, Net Entertainment, has announced plans to launch a new online pokie game based on a rock legend. The new game based on American rock star, Jimi Hendrix, will be the second game in its trilogy of rock star pokie games. It officially unveiled the game at ICE Totally Gaming in London last week.
The entirely 3D animated video pokie game is scheduled to be released in April. The first game in their rock trilogy was Guns ‘N Roses which was released in January 2016 and the company already has plans for the final game in the series which will be released in September.
NetEnt has indicated that the Jimi Hendrix online pokies game will feature some of the star’s most popular songs including Crosstown Traffic, Foxy Lady, Little Wing and Purple Haze. His character will appear in the game and has been developed with ten different morph targets ensuring realistic facial expressions.
“Jimi Hendrix is indisputably one of the greatest rock stars that ever lived,” commented Simon Hammon, Chief Product Officer at NetEnt. “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, LLC and Authentic Hendrix, LLC on this game will help make our NetEnt Rocks series one of the most desirable product offerings available.”
Janle Hendrix, President and CEO at Experience 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.”
