Hotline 2 slot, just like the original title, takes you to the streets of Miami where you will join two savvy detectives on the quest to uncover the mystery behind a jewellery store robbery.
The game’s superb graphics is matched by its awesome gameplay and retro-cool soundtrack that has a hint of nostalgia to it.
Hotline 2 slot is played on a 5×3 grid setup with 243 Paylines for triggering game wins. Just like the first release, it features several bonus features and has its max win potential pegged at a whopping 5,184x the stake.
How to play
Playable with bets ranging from 0.30 up to 150 coins per spin, you can trigger wins by matching at least three of the game symbols on the reels. Game symbols include 6 jewellery items, detectives Quinn and Riviera, Kitty Weiss, and a guy wearing a mic. Kitty Weiss is the most valuable symbol on the reels paying up to 2.66x the stake for 5 of a kind combo.
Hotline 2 Slot Special Features
On the reels, you will find regular wilds and expanding wilds. Both will stand in for all other game symbols bar the scatter when landed on reels 2, 3, and 5 in the regular game and during the free spins bonus round.
Probably the main attraction, the Hotline feature gives you more winning chances when active. The reels that will serve as the Hotline will be determined by your bet:
- Normal Bet: Reel 3 will serve as the Hotline
- Double Bet: Reels 3 and 4 will serve as the Hotlines with your stake doubled
- Triple Bet: Reels 2, 3, and 4 will serve as the Hotlines with your stake tripled
Expanding Wild Feature
When a wild symbol appears on a Hotline, it will expand to give you a fully wild reel. This is known as the Expanding Wild feature.
Free Spins Feature
With three neon flamingo scatters on the Hotlines, the Free Spins feature gets activated. You will be awarded seven free spins to play. If a wild is landed on a Hotline, it will increase the reel’s height by 1 row giving you more ways to win. Also, landed wilds will expand and turn the reels completely wild.
The Hotline can get up to 6 symbols high giving you 1,944 Paylines to land a winning combo. When the Hotline reaches the maximum height, you will be awarded 2 more free spins.
Hotline 2 doesn’t come with any jackpot prizes but players do get to trigger wins of up to 5,184x the stake.
Return to Player (RTP)
The RTP is set at 96.05% which is slightly lower than the original but you still get the same medium level variance.
Compared to the original slot, Hotline 2 slot is a superb slot that offers more action and bigger wins. Even though the RTP is rated slightly lower than the original, players can still trigger big wins of up to 5,184x the stake with their first spin.
