Graphics and Theme
This sequel almost has an identical look and feel to the original Hotline slot. There is twilight Miami background and also has a retro 80s feel with a chic 80s soundtrack. The inspiration clearly comes from the classic TV show Miami Vice. The storyline is a jewellery store robbery in the middle of sunny Miami, which is being investigated by detectives Quinn and Riviera. The graphics are superb and definitely hits the right nostalgia note.
The symbols that appear on the reels include necklaces, rings and solitary stones. The other symbols that appear on the reels include a guy wearing a mic and Detectives Quinn and Riviera. The most valuable symbol on the reels is Kitty Weiss who is wearing shades and has a glass of champagne in hand. She will payout either 0.66, 1.66 or 2.66 your stake for 3, 4 or 5 in combination.
The Wild symbol is a car and it can appear on reels 2, 3 or 4 in the base game and free spins.
This amazing retro themed slot game has three bonus features. There is the Hotline feature which comes into effect when the wilds land. Wilds expand to give you wild reels. it is all about the Free Spins feature where landing wilds on the Hotlines will lead to wild reels and more symbols on the Hotlines. This is when you can get the previously mentioned 1944 ways to win and more free spins.
The centre of all the action in this slot game is the Hotline Feature. During the base game the 3rd reel is a Hotline. More reels can become Hotlines by using the Double Bet and Triple Bet:
Double Bet – Reels 3 and 4 become Hotlines with your stake doubled
Triple Bet- Reels 2, 3 and 4 are Hotlines with your stake trebled.
Expanding Wild Feature
The previous feature plays a huge part when it comes to wild symbols. When a wild symbol lands on any of the three middle reels, it will substitute as in any other slot. When a wild lands on a Hotline though, it expands to give you a fully wild reel. This is known as the Expanding Wild Feature, you could end up with 3 wild reels per spin.
Free Spins Feature
The Free Spins is triggered by landing three neon flamingo scatter symbols on the Hotline reels in the base game. You will be awarded seven free spins. A wild landing on a Hotline will increase the height of the reels by one, which will create more ways to win. Also, wilds will expand to give you fully wild reels.
The maximum height of the Hotline is six symbols, meaning you can get the 1944 ways to win. When it does reach this height you will get another two free spins. You can reach a total number of 13 free spins.
