Play Hotline 2 slot for FREE
With its Hotline 2 slot, Netent opted to celebrate the 1980s in style after the significant success of the Hotline slot they published in 2018. Hotline 2 is similar to the first one, but seems to be wilder and flashier than the original game.
The plot involves a jewellery store burglary in sunny Miami that detectives Quinn and Riviera are looking into. It is obvious that Miami Vice inspired this plotline. The game’s five reels and 243 paylines feature high-speed automobile chases the two detectives join.
There are plenty of bonuses in the eagerly anticipated Hotline sequel as well. Hotline 2 rewards your efforts with incredibly lucrative extras like its Hotline mode, wild reels, and expanding wilds. The game also includes a Free Spins mode where 1,944 paylines are available to you. The Hotline 2 slot machine offers huge maximum payouts that can total up to 5,184 times your wager.
Design and Audio
Hotline 2 practically looks exactly like the original Hotline slot in terms of design. An exceptional ambience is created by the backdrop, which features nighttime Miami, the nostalgic music that plays as you play, and the top-notch graphics that are reminiscent of the 1980s. Once more, Quinn and Riviera, two detectives, are sent to look into a heist at a jewellery store. However, this time a special guest is involved. As Kitty Weiss enters the picture, things only become more challenging for the police. The soundtrack deserves special attention because it brilliantly catches the mood and suits the concept, giving all genre enthusiasts a retro vibe and fond memories.
The game’s major characters are high-value symbols. The highest paying symbol is Kitty Weiss, who is dressed to the nines and holding a champagne glass. For combinations of 3, 4, or 5, she pays 2, 5 or 8 times the stake. The detectives Riviera and Quinn pay out x5 and x4 respectively, for five matched symbols. Another cop symbol is added in the Hotline 2 slot game, which pays x3 for five symbols on an active payline.
The lower paying symbols are the jewellery items, starting with the pink diamond, which pays x2.5 the stake for 5 symbols. The red heart-shaped necklace pays x1.5 the stake; the orange brooch pays x1.2 the stake; while the purple necklace pays x1 for five symbols on an active payline. These are followed by the Blue Necklace with a payout of x0.6 and the green ring with a payout of x0.4 the stake for five matched symbols.
Apart from the paying symbols, the Hotline 2 slot game has a couple more that do not pay when you land on those. However, they do trigger some bonus features. For instance, the flamingo symbol is the scatter symbol that triggers the free spins feature. the wild symbols can substitute for other symbols, and also trigger the expanding wilds bonus feature.
Hotline 2 Bonus Features
The Hotline feature, which was present in the first part, is the first to be mentioned. This time, instead of the rows that made up the Hotline Zone in the first Hotline, we have three centre reels that can be independently turned on or off. Three bet options are available when playing the slot machine: a basic bet and two Bonus Bet levels, Double and Triple Bets. The third reel in the Base Bet game is a Hotline, and additional reels may also become Hotlines:
- Double Bet: The wager is doubled and reel 4 is changed to a Hotline.
- Triple Bet: This triples the wager and converts reels 2 and 4 to Hotlines.
Wild and Extending Wilds
The wild symbol can appear on the 2, 3 and 4 reels. It can substitute other symbols in order to create a winning combination. However, if a Wild lands on a Hotline it expands to cover the entire reel. This feature is known as Expanding Wild. With this bonus feature, you might even get 3 expanding wild reels in one spin if the hotlines are activated.
Hotline 2 Free Spins
The Free Spins round of the Hotline 2 slot is activated when you land on three scatter symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4. You get 7 free spins after the bonus is activated. This is not all, though, as the wild symbols in this game are more significant than they are in the standard game.
Basically, every wild symbol that lands in a designated zone during the Free Spins, raise the height of the corresponding reel by one symbol, resulting in more paylines or possibilities to win. Additionally, expanding wild symbols that appear throughout the bonus round create wild reels.
Since the game’s maximum reel height is six symbols, you have access to up to 1,944 paylines or opportunities to win during the Free Spins round; as compared to the 243 paylines included in the base game.
Hotline 2 Mobile
Hotline 2 may be played on desktop computers, mobile devices, and tablets despite its throwback 80s motif. As you may think, the graphics and audio look good on smaller smartphone screens.
