Review of Hotline
NetEnt have got their grand theft auto inspiration on absolute point with their Hotline slot game. We love how Miami Vice/ GTA this game feels and looks, it’s just as if you have been transported into an 80’s video game or movie with those shady stereotypical characters included. As soon as you open the Hotline slot game you are greeted with a fantastic trailer with 80’s sitcom music which screams tacky suits and martinis.
When a NetEnt slot has a trailer, then you know it’s got to be something special. The music and soundtrack is spot on, it’s hard to believe that this is a game rather than a show. Hotline has a storyline, and it’s based on a jewel theft which happened in Miami and the two main characters who are also detectives need to solve the case! This slot game has some fantastic features, including Free Spins, Re-Spins and a Bonus game.

How to play Hotline online
It is hard to not get too caught up in the theme of the game and feel as though you have actually just teleported into an 80’s sitcom, this is really a fantastic slot game in which NetEnt has created. It doesn’t compare to any other online slot machines that they have made in our opinion. The layout is pretty much standard to all slot games, with its 5 reels and 30 paylines, but there are also a lot of great Bonus features too.
Before you begin spinning your way through this sun-kissed slot game you should be sure to adjust your betting limit, and this can be done by using the Bet Level, and Coin value tabs placed at the bottom of the grid. The minimum bet in which you can make is £0.15, and the maximum bet you can make is £150, so this is a perfect game for those who wish to start on a lower bet and then later build up, or vice-versa.

Hotline Bonus Bet
Now let’s talk about the Hotline Bonus Bet, this is an incredible Bonus bet feature which gives us players an advantage in the game. It will increase the chance to win Expanding Wilds, and Re-Spins for a higher bet. Basically, every row in the game is a Hotline, and every Hotline can be activated or deactivated however one of the Hotlines is always activated.
When one Hotline is activated, the game will be played with a Base Bet of 15 coins per bet level, when two Hotlines are activated, the game will be played with a Double Bet which is of course 30 coins per bet level, and if three Hotlines end up being activated, the game will be played with a Triple Bet which is 45 coins per bet level. The aim is for as many Hotlines as possible to activate because it will give us a higher chance for Expanding Wilds and Re-Spins to occur in the slot.

Wilds, Expanding Wilds and Re-Spins
For such a Wild game, you could expect for there to be some Wild symbols, and of course there are. This game is full on action packed and NetEnt were not stingy with the features. The Wild symbols in Hotline are a red car, and these can appear anywhere on the reels in the main game, during the Free Spins feature, or during the Re-Spins feature. Wilds can also substitute for all symbols apart from Scatters.
If you manage to get a Wild landing on an activated Hotline, this will expand to cover the entire reel! When the Wild lands on an activated Hotline and expands, this will award you with a Re-Spin, and the Expanding Wild will stay on the reels until the Re-Spins have finished. This fantastic feature will continue until there are no more new Wild symbols landing on an activated Hotline in the game.
Hotline Free Spins
Here is your chance to get some of those casino free spins that we all love in a slot game! The Hotline Scatter symbols are a beautiful Miami sunset with palm trees with the word Scatter on them. The Hotline Free Spins feature will be activated by having 3 Scatter symbols appearing anywhere on reels 1,3, and 5 in the main game. This will in turn activate 7 Free Spins for you to use.
During the Free Spins feature, if a Wild symbols lands on an activated Hotline it will expand and cover the entire reel. This will remain expanded until you have finished the Free Spins feature, and be sure to keep in mind that Free Spins will always be played at the same bet level, coin value, and activated Hotlines as the round in which activated the Free Spins. At the end of the Free Spins feature, the game will return to the round which activated the Free Spins in the first place, and if Free Spins and Re-Spins are won simultaneously, the feature activated first will be Free Spins.
