The first thing that came to mind was the awesome 80’s Miami Vice vibes that plays out throughout the intro. It looks sexy, feels sexy and you just know that the heat is on…We totally dig the retro vibes and the theme filters through into the features of the slot.
At some point, you might find the background music to become slightly overwhelming, but what would this game be without the vibey, nostalgic tunes? Besides, you will most probably become completely entranced by the shimmering hopes that Hotline holds in store for you.
Exactly How Hot Is Hotline?
NetEnt usually doesn’t cut corners when it comes to implementing high quality graphics into their platforms and the overall feel of this slot is one that satisfies.
The slot’s features include the Hotline Bonus Set, Free Spins and Re-spins and you’ll find navigation on the page to be seamless. Hotline’s return-to-play percentage lies at 97.04 % – but that also depends on how many of the 3 hotlines you trigger.
To the left of the page, you’ll click on the toggles to select the lines you want to play with. A minimum of 1 activation is required, but you can also select all 3. Selecting all 3 hotlines will expand your betting stakes, but it also means that you are eligible for bigger possible wins.
Hitting 3 Scatter symbols in reels 1, 3 and 5 will activate a total of 7 re-spins and will follow the same bet-level and coin value. You’ll also find that once you land on a Wild symbol in any of the rows, will expand all over the reel and automatically re-spin the lines. Should you land on another Wild token, your payout is guaranteed to be a hot one.
Will You Be Coining It?
You probably will and then there is also a chance that you might get hooked on the ease factor of Hotline. The game is compatible on desktop, mobile and tablet devices. The 5 reels and 30 paylines are playable from $0.20 to $650.
Landing on Kitty Weiss (the classy lady with the massive mobile phone) will get you 200 coins for 5 across a payline. Hotline’s Bonus Bet feature will allow you to select your rows and will cost you 15 coins per level. 2 rows will take 30 coins, whereas all 3 will come in at a deduction of 45 coins. We found that it playing with all 3 rows to be the best option, but it all depends on what you can afford.
Coin denominations range from 0.01 to 1 and can be set by clicking Coin Value +/- and by clicking on Max Bet, it will ensure that you get the highest bet that is available. Spin will set the reels in motion and Autoplay will let the reels run on their own for a number of times without interruption.
Owning The Streets
Apart from the obviously cool idea that you’re following Detective Quinn across town as he tries to pin down the notorious robber, Miss Kitty Weiss, you’ll find the game to be super playable.
The only thing that we found a bit off was the fact that you have to wager the double in order to activate an additional hotline.
Other than that, we were really impressed with NetEnt for bringing the 80’s cool back and for captivating massive interest with their newest online casino.
Feel free to try Hotline in Mr Win by playing for fun!
