Game Features

Wild symbol

The symbol substituting Wild symbol appears on the centre reels 2,3 and 4 only. As per usual, the Wild symbol can replace all other symbols except the Scatter to complete the formation of a winning combination. Whenever a Wild appears as part of a winning combination on a Hotline on reels 2, 3 and 4 depending on the level, the Wild symbol expands to cover the entire reel(s). The Hotline feature is discussed below.

Hotline Feature

With this feature you can fulfil the chance of getting more Expanding Wilds on the reels in exchange for a higher stake. You can choose from 3 levels:

  • Level 1: on this base level you play your bet and can receive Stacked Wilds on the centre reel (reel 3)
  • Level 2: on this middle level you wager double your stake with the chance to get Stacked Wilds on Reels 3 and 4
  • Level 3: on the highest level you play for three times you bet with the chance to receive Stacked Wilds on all three inner reels (reels 2, 3 and 4)

In Free Spins mode a hotline reel can also award you additional free spins.

Scatter Symbols

Completely in line with the theme, the Scatter symbol appears in the form of a neon flamingo. Like the Wild symbol, the Free-Spins-mode-triggering Scatter symbol on Hotline 2 slot only appears on reels 2,3 and 4. If you manage to play 3 Scatter symbols in one round you are awarded with 7 free spins.

Free Spins

Once Free Spins is triggered you become part of an exiting chase that even involves a helicopter. In this mode Wild symbols expand to cover the whole reel regardless if they are part of a winning combination or not.  Free Spins comes with the Expanding Reels feature that is discussed below.

Expanding Reels

In Free Spins mode the reels can expand whenever a Wild symbol lands on any of the centre reels, the reel in question expands with an extra row. The reels can expand up to 6 rows. Whenever a reel expands to its maximum height, you get an additional 2 free spins if the reel is a hotline and 1 extra free spin if it isn’t. If all three centre reels have expanded to the maximum of 6 rows, you will be playing with the staggering number of 1944 win lines.

How does Hotline 2 compare to the original?

In terms of setting and graphics Hotline 2 looks exactly the same as its predecessor but as you can imagine, the graphics and animations of the sequel have been given a slight an update. Hotline 2 also has more features than Hotline the original. Both slot games are rather volatile and the second instalment has a considerably lower RTP than Hotline. Rather than 30 fixed bet lines on the original, Hotline 2 has a base number of at least 243 win ways. The number of win ways can increase to an impressive number of almost 2000 win ways when reels 2,3 and 4 are all expanded to their maximum height in Free Spins mode. This gives you considerably more possibilities to make winning combinations. Unlike Hotline, Hotline 2 doesn’t grant you re-spins, but, as mentioned above, it does offer the expanding reels feature, which doesn’t appear on the original. On Hotline 2 too, it is all about the car chase and enjoying 80s nostalgia in great style.

Verdict

Hotline 2 might be a bit of a deceiving slot game title, as the slot is an upgrade rather than a sequel to Hotline the original. Nevertheless, Hotline 2 doesn’t disappoint and is as exciting as the original. Hotline 2 slot comes with increased volatility and an additional features. The high volatility and the low RTP might not make it a suitable game for low-risk players, but the theme, graphics and animations alone make Hotline 2 worth several exciting spins.
