Hendrix’ Hot Summer
Less than two months after the launch of the game, players on the Golden Nugget online casino hit it twice for two massive paydays. First, on June 14, 2016, one New Jersey player turned a $5 spin into a $100,760 jackpot playing the Jimi Hendrix Online Slot on Golden Nugget. Less than two weeks later, on June 26, 2016, the game was hit for six figures on Golden Nugget again, as another New Jersey player turned a $5 spin into an even bigger $105,200 jackpot.

I remember at the time reading about these. How is 20,000x possible on THIS game?

Not ever played it other than few days when first released but my shortest answer to "How is this possible" would be its not and the article is pure BS!

I've heard people say they are suspicious about big wins shortly after a new release. Like they might be set up or something for good press. I dunno, how could they get away with that though?

Full screen wilds in each of the purple haze free spins? Only way I could think to get above 1000X never mind close to 20000

Surely this has to be a different Jimi Hendrix game, and not that soft effort from NetEnt? You'd have to get 99 Purple Haze free spins with Red Guitar respins laid over the top and all sorts of other shit to get anywhere near those quoted values?

Here is the story:

"On June 14, 2016, a NJ player won $100,760 on a $5 spin playing the Jimi Hendrix Online Slot at Golden Nugget.

Within the next two weeks, the game paid out six figures at Golden Nugget again."

I also remember Golden Nugget advertising this on their main page at the time in 2016. Its the NetEnt Jimi Hendrix we all know. Something not right here.

5OAK Wilds pays 20x Stake per Line. At 20 lines, that means it pays 400x Stake each time. You can get between 6-12 Free Spins, if you do get 12 and manage to get a Full Screen of Wilds every time (the green guitar works aswell, same pay) you'd end up at 'only' 4800x Stake.

Unless im missing something drastic, its impossible.
Maybe @burgstrom can comment? :)

Only one way this is possible....
Article doesn’t actually state it was a single spin that won over 100k.
It says “turned a $5 spin into a $100,760 jackpot“
Which could mean the $5 spin was the starting point.

Sounds like something a Casumo affiliate would write...

Good point but VERY misleading however if this turns out to be the case. Also would not be advertising compliant, defo not here in the UK.

I thought about that aswell, however, if thats the case, the article is misleading at best.

Wild line pays 20x so max. hit in one spin is 400x (full screen wilds what is impossible to get I guess). And there is no feature in free spins where you can get multiplier so I guess some 500x may be maximum hit from this slot. So no chances to hit any 100k without some local casino based jackpot thing.

Or then it's just "he started with 5 euro spins and ended to play with 200e stakes"

Sorry to wear this one thin but it is possible if you're taking a crap in McDonald's on your work lunch break on your mobile when playing :)

so it's all about the golden nugget? fssss! 326 flame grilled whoppers, 41 accusations of busking on private property and only now you tell me i was in the wrong damn restroom.

full screen of wilds is not IMPOSSIBLE right? Just need every symbol to be a non-premum (10,J,Q,K,A), no? Or did you mean ALMOST impossible?

Yea it must be misleading information.
