Hotline – New 80s Slot From NetEnt
Once again, NetEnt introduces a new video slot game, Hotline. Basically, Hotline is a five reel, three-row (30 pay lines) slot game. The game is designed to be played on both desktop and mobile devices with an amount ranging from 15p t0 to £450 per spin. The slot is not only eye-catching but also comes with a beautiful 80s soundtracks to accompany the great looks. The theme, which is inspired by the retro-themed TV shows and famous 80s series like Miami Vice, takes you back to those days. Palm trees appear in the sunset while neon signs appear in the background.
This slot game offers you plenty of amazing features, including an exclusive cutting-edge multi-level bonus bet feature. The Hotline Bonus Bet feature is identified by a line of yellow light on the left side of the reels. The lines are important because when a wild symbol settles on on a chosen Hotline, it expands and fills all the positions on its reel. You can activate this feature if you wish to.
When you activate one Hotline Bonus Bet, you have to play 15p at min stakes and a double (30p at min stakes) when you choose to use two Hotlines and so on. The more you activate hotlines, the more you increase your chances of getting expanding wilds and respins.
Free spins in this game are triggered when you randomly land three sunset scatter symbols on reels five, three and one. This earns you seven free spins. During the free spins feature, and when the Hotline wilds activate, the seven free spins will remain in place for the rest of the round. You can not trigger more spins from this feature. Theoretically, you might find the screen filled with wilds on each free spins. This means that you could end up with maximum wins of 400x your stake for every spin (re-spin or free spin). Generally, playing with three Hotlines is the best.
As usual, this slot has wild symbols which substitute other symbols to form winning combinations. There are also expanding wilds to offer extra wins and Free Spins and Respins to increase your gaming session in the slot.
The symbols here include shining gemstones and three typically 80s characters who are a classy and mysterious woman with a brick phone, a permed cop carrying a gun and a gangster in suave sunglasses. The lady symbol is the most rewarding one; she gives 200 coins for five across a payline. The wild symbol here is represented by the red sports and it can show up on any reel.
How to Play
First of all, you have to set your bets. The coin denominations range from 0.01 to 1. You can set this by clicking the “Coin Value +/-” section. The “Level +/-” helps you to place the number of coins you want per line. The “Max Bet” button enables you to set the max bet available in the game. The “Spin” button sets the reels in motion and the “Autoplay” does the same, but automatically for the number of times you specify without interruption.
