Slot Details

With the Miami beach promenade at sunset in the background, Hotline™ is a tribute to the surging popularity of retro themed TV shows and remakes of the most popular 80’s movies. A frameless game window with intricately designed symbols and characters as well as flawless animations of the expanding Wilds, combined with a fitting 80’s soundtrack round-off a well designed, high quality game. Hotline™ is a video slot with 5 reels, 3 rows and 30 fixed pay lines, featuring Wild substitutions, Expanding Wilds, Re-Spins, Free Spins and the Hotline™ Bonus Bet.

 

 

TRTP of this low variance game ranges from 96.13% – 97.04%, depending on how many rows are activated with the bonus bet, featuring a maximum win on a single win of 400x stake for a full screen of Expanding Wild symbols. Bet levels and coin values range from 1 – 10 and $0.01 – $1.00 allowing for bet sizes between $0.15 – $150 without a Hotline Bonus Bet. Auto Play can be used to select up to 1,000 consecutive spins with a range of options as to when the run should stop. The slot is in HTML5 format available on desktop, mobile and tablet across all OS platforms.

Miami Pursuit™ has six pay symbols which can all appear stacked, starting with a ring, a tiara and a crown at the low end, continuing with the two male characters Baretta and Shades and the female villain at the high end. Pays for a single 5OAK range from 1.33x – 13.33x bet. Wild is a red sports car that will expand if it appears on an active Hotline and substitutes for all symbols except scatters. Those are an intricate tile with a sunset scene and the word “Scatter” across them.

Hotline™ Bonus Bet

For the first time, Netent introduced a bonus bet feature on one of its slots which let’s players choose how many Hotlines are active on a spin. A Hotline is one of the three rows of the slot. Wilds landing on an active Hotline will expand and stay sticky for a free Re-Spin.

One Hotline is always active as standard at which the game is played with base bet sizes. Players can choose on every spins which row they want designated as Hotline. To increase the chances for expanding Wilds and Re-Spins, players can activate two or three Hotlines at a cost of double or triple the base bet.

Expanding Wilds and Re-Spin Feature

Wild symbols can appear anywhere on the reels in any part of the game. If it lands on an active Hotline it will expand and stay sticky for the Re-Spin feature in the base game. An expanded Wild in the Free Spins will stay sticky for the reminder of the bonus round.

The game awards a Re-Spin after an expanding Wild lands, first paying the potential current win and then spins the reels again at no cost with the expanded Wild locked in position. The feature continues when more Wilds land on an active Hotline in the re-spin and ends when no new Wild symbol appears.

In Free Spins, if a Wild symbol lands on an activated Hotline, it expands to cover the entire reel and remains locked on the reels until the end of the bonus round. No Re-Spin will be awarded during the Free Spins.

Our Verdict

Are we hot on our heels after trying the latest Netent creation? To be honest, we expected maybe a little more thrill and certainly higher win potential when we got the introduction details of Hotline™. The game is certainly well-made with detailed attention to the graphics and animations, on top of a very fitting soundtrack, but that is where my enthusiasm ends. It proved to be another low variance game with a maximum win potential on a single spin of a mere 400x stake which is rather too low to have me spinning the reels on a regular basis. Worth mentioning is the Hotline™ Bonus Bet, a first on a Netent slot that increases the chances to hit Wilds on activated Hotlines and thus can lead to more frequent big wins.
