The new Hotline 2 online slot from NetEnt is the sequel to the hugely successful Hotline online slot that was released back in late February 2018. The new Hotline 2 slot expected to arrive at more than half of our reviewed UK online casinos on Monday, August 24th, 2020. It will be released simultaneously on desktop and mobile, and some of the best UK casino sites where you’ll be able to enjoy playing on this game are 888 Casino, Mr Green Casino, 32 Red Casino and Casino.com.
This exciting new NetEnt slot features the same memorable characters (Detectives Quinn and Riviera), and it has the same 1980’s Twilight in Miami theme with retro synthwave music playing along in the background. During normal play, the game has 5 reels and 243 different ways to win per spin, but during the Free Spins Bonus, there can be up to as many as 1,944 different active win ways, which allows for the wins to occur more frequently.
On the original Hotline slot and the new Hotline 2 slot, the ‘Hotline’ game mechanic is central to the action. However, rather than being on ROWS 1, 2 and 3, the Hotline areas now cover REELS 1, 2 and 3. During normal play, reel 3 (the middle reel) starts as the Hotline, unless you active the DOUBLE BET or TRIPLE BET.
Activating the Double Bet means that you are now paying for reels 3 and 4 to both be Hotlines, and playing with the Triple Bet active means that reels 2, 3 and 4 are all now Hotlines. Whenever a Wild Symbol lands in any of the Hotline areas, it will expand to fill the entire reel(s) from top to bottom to help generate an even bigger winning combo for you.
During the Free Spins Bonus, Expanding Wild Symbols landing on the Hotlines can expand the actual reel, which then increases the number of win ways that are currently active. Therefore, if you manage to increase reels 2, 3 and 4 to their maximum potential, it means that you will be playing with the full 1,944 win ways active. In addition to there being more active win ways, opening up entire reels will also add 2+ Extra Free Spins to your bonus.
If you enjoyed playing on the first Hotline slot from NetEnt, then you’re going to love this exciting new version, so don’t forget to check out the new Hotline 2 online slot as soon as it arrives next month. You won’t be disappointed.
