Swedish iGaming giant NetEnt has taken players back to the streets of Miami in its blazing-hot sequel to the 2018 original in Hotline 2.
Like its crime-themed predecessor, the video slot is a nod to the popular American crime drama television series from the 80s, including the two characters who play Metro-Dade Police Department detectives working undercover, James “Sonny” Crockett and Ricardo “Rico” Tubbs, along with who we think must be Detective Gina Calabrese.
“The new free spins feature perfectly complements the much-loved Hotline Bonus Bet of the original.”
The medium volatility, 5-reel, 3-row game offers 243 win ways, which expand up to 1,944 during extra spins, and graphics and a retro soundtrack that take you to the sunny beaches and condo-lined streets of Miami.
Hotline 2 builds on the success of the 2018 original, with the popular Hotline Bonus Bet, which increases the chance of winning Expanding Wilds for an even higher stake, as well as the ramped-up new extra spins round.
Landing three of the neon pink flamingo scatter symbols on Hotlines 2, 3, and 4, the Hotline zone, activate extra spins, during which a Wild symbol landing on a Hotline increases its height by 1 symbol and creates more ways to win big. The three Hotline reels can expand to a maximum of 6 rows in height, increasing the number of bet ways to 1,944. When a Hotline reel reaches its maximum height, 2 additional extra spins are awarded. The revamped feature was designed to boost the excitement through the duration of the play session
Chief Commercial Officer for NetEnt, Andy Whitworth, commented on the new release in a company press release…
“Hotline is a real favourite among NetEnt fans, so it made sense to expand the franchise with a sequel that ramps up the party feel and packs in more action.
“The new free spins feature perfectly complements the much-loved Hotline Bonus Bet of the original, adding another layer of excitement for maximum engagement.”
The summer never ends in this high-octane sequel that can be played with separate bet and coin values.
