He may have died in 1970, but the legend of Jimi Hendrix lives on in the form of a slot machine. His mainstream career may have only lasted four years; however such was his popularity, that he’s remembered almost half a century later. He was described by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as “arguably the greatest instrumentalist in the history of rock music” and his slot echoes those sentiments.
