For fast cars, slick heroes and a super smooth synth wave sound track, you can’t get hotter than NetEnt’s Hotline video slot. Enter the world of speeding cops in shiny suits with brick-sized mobile phones. This is the eighties, Miami-style.
Across 30 paylines the free Hotline slot features expanding wilds and reel respins, in a super stylish game. New for software by NetEnt, is the bonus bet Hotline feature, which is sure to thrill the risk-takers. All these ingredients add up to one sassy video slot that’ll appeal to gamblers, whatever decade you grew up in.
We know NetEnt’s pedigree for classy slots action and this latest release is no exception. NetEnt are one of the top software developers in the industry today, they set a high benchmark for slots quality. Hotline meets their typical high spec immersive experience and pushes the boundaries with new features.
Wagers for base gameplay offer ten betting levels with a coin value from 0.01 – 1.00. On top of this there’s the option to add hotlines for additional stakes. You can start spinning from as little as 0.15. With all bonus bets activated, the max bet for the game peaks at 450.00 per spin.
Whilst stakes make it possible for all gambling pockets to enjoy this game, there’s no question that chances of winning are far better when playing the bonus bet feature. Low limits players will enjoy the retro experience, but the biggest thrills are reserved for gamblers who take advantage of the hotline features.
80s’ World That’s More Classy Than Brassy
It may have been a brassy decade, full of flashy sports cars, shoulder pads and perms, but it’s firmly en vogue amongst Millennials. This nostalgia-themed slot is perfectly in tune with the zeitgeist, treating players to retro eighties mania with a classy vibe.
The sultry Miami Beach setting shows off the developer’s typical stunning graphics and animation intro. Its theme and styling echo video games such as Grand Theft Auto and there are heavy overtones of cult TV show, Miami Vice. In fact, we think this slot was originally titled Miami Pursuit, but the presence of two Crockett and Tubbs lookalikes may have alerted the lawyers. There’s even a flashy Italian sports car on the reels.
The colours are muted, but the logo is comfortingly neon lit and the soundtrack is a masterpiece. Tuning in with the synth wave trend, the cheesy sax and rock guitar, blend brilliantly with a police radio scanner for the essential cop chase vibe.
In the hotlines that are active, wild symbol racing cars will burn rubber and expand to fill the entire reel. As our cop heroes take hot pursuit down the Miami strip, players will get a reel respin for another chance at wins. It’s a thrilling feature that makes for exciting gameplay and rewarding real cash prizes.
The game’s top payouts come from master thief, Kitty Waites, at 200x your line bet. Three of the stunning pieces of jewellery she’s snatched, offer the lowest payouts at 5x your line bet. These may not be spectacular sums, but, as mentioned, if players hit the hotline feature then wins can start to stack up.
Respins and Free Spins for Big Wins
Paying the extra stakes for the bonus bets can really pay off in the Hotline video slot. With expanding wilds offering reel respins as long as wilds continue to land, you can hit big wins of four and five of a kind.
On top of this, the bonus free spins can land big wins. Three sunset scatters on reels one, three and five will score 7 free spins. Only seven, you cry? Fear not – NetEnt, of course, have the bonus covered.
Expanding wilds during free spins remain sticky throughout. If you get lucky with wilds landing early, then multiple four and five-of-a-kinds mean the real cash prizes quickly start to mount up.
