The soon to be released Hotline slot machine is NetEnt’s attempt to take you back into the past. With a classy 80s theme, this mobile slot machine certainly oozes charm and style, even if it is a little bit “Miami Vice” for some.
The slot machine is bright and colourful and offers up a humdrum selection of imagery which accurately emphasises its theme. Whatever you may think of the theme, though, do not be fooled into thinking this is your ordinary 80s or crime-themed slot. The title serves an entirely different purpose.
When it comes to pulling things out of the bag, Net Entertainment have a long and firm reputation in that department.
The casino software providers are widely renowned for their ability to create a truly impressive slot out of thin air, and the work they have done with the Hotline slot emphasises that wonderfully. Here is a game which, although it looks simple has a very special feature which you are unlikely to find in any other game. It is the feature from which this mobile slot takes its name.
How to play
Players are going to find 5 reels and 30 paylines of action to be enjoyed in this game. More impressively, players are also going to be able to get a 2-for-1 deal with the paylines in this game. At its cheapest, the slot machine will cost you just $0.15 per spin, whilst even at its costliest, you are looking at maximum stakes of just $450 per spin in the slot.

Hotline feature: The slot takes its title from the Hotlines that it contains. Besides each row is a coloured button. These are the hotlines. Players can turn them on or off as they desire, but playing with 2 or 3 of them will cost you double or triple what you were intending to wager. Why play with hotlines at all? You need them to trigger bonuses.
Wild symbol: Wild symbols appear in this game, and they can substitute for all other symbols in the game, save for scatters. However, if they appear on an active hotline, they can expand to occupy the whole reel they show up on. A re-spin will then be offered with hotline wilds. Once no new wilds appear, the re-spin feature of this hotline triggered bonus ends.
Free spin bonus: Scatter symbols will trigger a free spin bonus round if you can land them on the first, third and fifth reels during a single base game spin. In the feature, players will get 7 free spins, and during those spins, wild symbols can expand and become sticky for the remainder of the feature if they appear on hotlines.
At most, players can hope to win around 400x their total bet with this slot. To do so, they would need all 5 expanding wilds to sit on the reels. It is possible for players to increase the RTP rate of 96.13% by adding hotlines. At most, you can get the RTP (return to player) rate of 97.04% with this method.
Unfortunately, you aren’t going to be able to get to grips with Hotline just yet. NetEnt have scheduled the game for a March 22 release. However, players will be able to check out a Hotline trailer as well as play a demo before the new slot finally launches at casino sites this spring.
