Hotline Slot NetEnt

Hotline is 5 reels and 30 pay-lines video slot powered by Net Entertainment software. This slot is vaguely inspired with Miami Vice show from back in the 80s. Two detectives’ look-alike, Tubbs and Crockett, and their adventures. The slot has a nice looking intro which is based on a TV-show starring intro. Reels are set on the streets of Miami in sunset, and they feature some nice looking, retro symbols. Give this slot a spin here for free or visit any of the NetEnt Casinos if you wish to play for real.

Before you go out in the streets with these two detectives, you need to set your bets. Coin denominations go from 0.01 to 1, and can be set by clicking "Coin Value +/-" section. With "Level +/-" you can set the number of coins per line. By clicking on "Max Bet" you will set the maximum bet available. "Spin" will set the reels in motion, whereas "Autoplay" will turn the reels automatically for a chosen number of times without interruption.

Hotline Bonus Bet is a feature that increases the chance to win Expanding Wilds and Re-spins for a higher bet. When one Hotline is activated, the game is played with the base bet of 15 coins per bet level. With two Hotlines active, the game is played with double bet of 30 coins per bet. With 3 Hotlines active, the game is played with triple bet of 45 coins per bet level.

Wild symbols can appear anywhere on the reels in the main game, Re-spins and Free Spins. Wild can substitute for all symbols except for Scatter symbols. If a Wild symbol lands on an active Hotline, it will expand to cover the entire reel.

If a Wild symbol lands on an activated Hotline, it will expand to cover the entire reel, and award a re-spin after all the wins have been evaluated. The expanding Wild will remain on the reels until the end of re-spins.

Sunset is the Scatter symbol. If you land 3 of them anywhere on the reels 1, 3 and 5, you will activate the bonus feature where you will be awarded with 7 spins. If a Wild lands on the Hotline during the Free Spins, it will expand to cover the entire reel, and remain on the reels until the end of the bonus round.

Hotline slot is one of my favorite Netent releases of last year. At first I was a bit skeptical as I wasn't really a fan of the new games they were releasing, that, along with the fact that it's a 15 payline slot. I'm used to playing 20-liners, 25-liners so having 15 lines I though- meh, can it pay? But after many many sessions with it, I can clearly say- yes it can.

The game is inspired by 1960s Miami Vice theme with beautiful cars, getaways and danger luring in every step of the way. Once again Netent has done a marvelous job with the design, as the color scheme is vibrant and the symbols look rich. The game has an interesting re-spin feature as well as 7 free spins bonus round triggered by scatter symbols on reels 1,3 and 5.

When you play Hotline slot, you'll want to see a lot of car symbols as they work as wilds and by default, when the car lands in the middle of any of the reels, it will expand and give you a respin. However, in the free spins round, they will become sticky wilds. I personally really enjoy this game and I think it has good winning potential. I really like the fact that you can also activate the bonus bet on the other two rows- meaning, for an extra price you can have the wild symbols expanding even if they're not in the middle.

I've had some ups and downs with this game as sometimes the base game can be very cold and if you're playing it with 0.45$ or higher bets, it can leave you high and dry very quickly. But on the other hand, it has helped me to meet wagering for a couple of bonuses- once I got it in a good mood and played with 0.90$ per spin and had a few 100x bet winnings that I didn't manage to capture. But one thing is sure- if you play with other reels activated as well, the bonus round gives such an adrenaline rush as it's possible to get nearly full screen of cars! I had it once and it paid well!

Overall it's a beautiful game, it can be a great help to meet wagering requirements because of the wild feature. This probably won't be the game that will pay mega wins, but I definitely think it has good winning potential.

Whatever Miami TV series or movie this Hotline game may have been based upon, my first impression when I first looked at it was its similarity with Quickspin's The Wild Chase game. Both are about robbers stealing valuables - which in the case of Hotline, is about robbing jewelleries. A very new game from NetEnt no doubt, but the graphics quality simply failed to impress me! The overall presentation of Hotline looks dated, like it came from some years ago, and the colours simply lack vibrancy too.

Looking at the values of the symbols in the paytable only made my jaw opened wide - I simply couldn't believe the incredibly and extremely low values! The highest paying symbol, the Lady, pays an unbelievable 6x total bet win for getting 5 of her, so the other symbols can only have even lower unbelievable win values! The Wild symbols don't pay anything, so getting 5 Wilds on a payline would be absolutely nothing to shout about - you get a blardy win of just 6x the total bet! Similarly, the Sunset Scatter symbols are also non-paying, but worse still, they award only 7 free spins and without any multiplier too! What the argh!

Don't ever let the possibility of getting 5 Wild Reels makes you think that this Hotline is a super game - it simply isn't! Why? Firstly, the Wilds can only substitute for the highest paying symbol, the Lady, which has a maximum win of a miserable 6x total bet! So even if you get all 5 Wild Reels, at 30 paylines, they would only pay a 180x total bet win, which is simply unheard of! Compare getting 5 Wild Reels (Harps) in Jack And The Beanstalk game, or 5 Wild Reels (Wild Desire) in Immortal Romance, for example, and you can see how ridiculous this 180x total bet win really is! Secondly, in order to get all those 5 Wild Reels, you need to activate all 3 Hotlines, at a cost of 3x the initial bet per spin! So, instead of playing with just $0.15 bet per spin for 1 Hotline, you'd be playing with $0.45 bet per spin for 3 Hotlines, which most of the time, would only go to waste by the empty spins!

But wait, that isn't all of it yet! When playing with just 1 Hotline activated, the Red Car Wild symbol would appear quite often, but not always landing in the Hotline zone. Playing with all 3 Hotlines activated, the Wild symbol would hardly appear at all, even after numerous empty spins! Honestly speaking, I found that playing with 2 or 3 Hotlines activated would only be a big waste of money! It's really pointless to chase after those 4 or 5 Wild Reels, because they cannot ever pay big!


Playing with $0.15 bets per spin, with 1 activated Hotline, can be considered as normal, but playing with $0.45 bets per spin, with 3 Hotlines activated, would really be nonsensical! You can still get better wins, get up to 5 Wild Reels (depending on the game), and all for just the minimum bet per spin. But worst of all, the paytable is simply too extremely and too ridiculously low!
