Highly-expected NetEnt slot Hotline has finally arrived
NetEnt has finally launched the long-anticipated slot game Hotline on 22 March and it is described as “fast and furious action on the reels”.
This 80s theme inspired game is the first NetEnt slot that features a unique multi-level bonus bet and therefore attracts several player groups.
Hotline is based on Miami Vice, a 1980s American crime TV series with two undercover detectives fighting organized crime on the streets of Miami.
Don Johnson aka Sonny and Philip Michael Thomas aka Rico turn into Baretta and Shades who try to catch a female villain. Names are different but everything else portrays the original show, palm trees in the sunset, neon signs, fast cars and one of the best soundtracks this provider has ever produced.
This 5-reel, 3-row slot game is not only packed with well known classics like wilds and expanding wilds substitutions, re-spins and free spins, but it is also the first NetEnt video slot with a unique multi-level bonus bet feature.
Unique Bonus Bet Feature
The feature appears in the game as Hotline Bonus Bet Feature and represents an excellent opportunity to appeal to various player segments in one exciting game.
It gives players additional options and some new mechanics which makes it stand out among other slot games. One row is always selected as Hotline but this feature allows players to make one, two or all three rows hot and therefore increase the chance of landing more expanding wilds, followed by re-spins and potentially Wild symbols.
The more Hotlines you choose, the more you have to invest into each spin but it may be well worth it. Primarily activated Hotline is played with 15 coins, two activated make the Hotline Bonus Bet a double one, 30 coins while three activated Hotlines make it a Triple bet, 45 coins.
The second special feature, Re-Spins is triggered when Wild appears on an activated Hotline and expands across the whole reel, rewarding a player with a re-spin. The Expanding Wild replaces any symbol except the Scatters, Sunset in Miami symbol, and is the highest paying special feature on the slot. Free Spins are triggered by three Scatters on the reels 1, 3 or 5 in the base game and rewards a player with 7 free spins.
Recognizable setting, awesome soundtrack, phenomenal new feature and high win potential, this high speed slot from NetEnt will not only take you on a little trip down the memory lane but also provide the ultimate player entertainment.
