Hotline slot game is a brand-new 5-reel video slot from NetEnt which will make you think you’re back in 1985. The hazy, retro opening video montage is set in a palm tree laden beach city to a pounding 80s beat. You see a jewelry heist take place, and the city’s two best cops on the case. Is that Crockett and Tubbs? Is this actually a slot version of Miami Vice (or the casino Miami Dice)? The Hotline montage is a faux TV show introduction. But we soon learn that the cop “Quinn” is played by “Danny Champion,” and “Rivera” is played by “Robert T. Grier.” Finally, the Femme fatale jewelry thief is named “Kitty Weiss” who is played by Karoline Wagner.
The slot features a brand-new type of in-game bonus, never seen before in a NetEnt slot. The Hotline Bonus Bet feature is available in the main game. You can highlight between 1 and 3 rows of the 5-reel by 3-row slot. If then, a wild lands on a reel that is also highlighted, then the wild expands to the whole reel AND you get a re-spin. The more rows that you highlight, the greater the chance of expanding wilds and re-spins. This, too, is reflected in the variant RTP – as NetEnt say, Hotline is a “multi-variance video slot.” With one bonus bet, the RTP is 96.13%. On a double bet, this increases to 96.70%. Finally, when you bet on all three (which, of course, triples your bet), then the Hotline RTP is 97.04%.
Therefore, if we were to give you one insider tip it would be as follows…
Play with all three Hotline Bonus Bet rows! If you are worried about the size of your stake, then lower the coin value. The statistics show that the return to player on this slot is better when you have a triple bet. That is science, not opinion!
Hotline is a fixed 30 pay line slot.
