Released in March 2018 by NetEnt, Hotline is a video slot designed in a retro style, backed up with excellent animations and intense soundtrack, to offer the gameplay filled with action. As soon as you launch it, you will notice that it draws an inspiration from the popular 1980’s series Miami Vice, from the way the characters are created to the overall atmosphere the game provides you with.
Get ready to have one hell of a ride in Hotline with Expanding Wilds, free spins and respins, the Hotline Bonus Bet and a pretty over-the-average RTP of 97,04%. And, let us not forget the maximum payout you could land going as high as 60,000 coins.
On the high end of the paytable are character icons. Two policemen and an elegant lady provide prizes from 80 to 200 coins when 5 matching symbols land on a payline. Low-value symbols are represented by crowns, necklaces and rings, awarding 30, 25 and 20 coins respectively if 5 of a kind appear across a payline.
The game’s Wild is depicted as a red car and lands during the base game, free spins and respins. Wild substitutes for all symbols but Scatter thus providing players with more chances to win big. Scatter is represented by the sunset symbol and though it doesn’t award prizes, it activates free games.
How to Play
Hotline is a 5-reel, 3-row slot with 30 fixed paylines across which you can place bets ranging from 15 to 150 coins by setting the coin value as low as $0.01 and as high as $1.00.
Since there are 10 bet levels, you can choose how many coins you wish to wager.
Press Spin to set the reels in motion or activate Autoplay to get them spinning on their own. As long as symbols align from left to right you will receive prizes.
Strategy & Tips
What makes this slot unique are three Hotlines you can choose to activate at a cost of 15, 30 or 45 coins. Keeping all hotlines active greatly enhances odds of winning.
Wild appearing on a Hotline will expand across the whole reel and contribute to winning combinations. These Expanding Wilds award respins and stay on the reels until the end of the feature.
When 3 Scatters appear on the reel 1, 3 and 5, 7 free spins are triggered. During this round, any Wilds landing on the reels will expand and remain in their positions until the feature ends.
Hotline is optimized for all devices, so you can enjoy playing it on your desktop, mobile or tablet. Activate all 3 Hotlines and hope for wins up to 60,000 coins.
