Overview of Hotline Slot
Slip into some chino’s, take your socks off and get your best loafers on because were going to 1980’s Miami, Hotline Style! This brand new slot from NetEnt absolutely screams Miami Vice at you mixed with a hint of Chase HQ and Beverley Hills Cop, the slot is based around Detective Quinn and Detective Rivera and there mission to catch a notorious criminal known as Kitti Weiss who as you can imagine is also stunning, think of the woman from Beverly Hills cop!!
Hotline is a standard 5 reel by 3 setup and plays on 30 lines but with a unique twist to change the variance, kind of an advanced version of the bonus bet in Koi Princess. You can choose 1 row as your hotline and if a wild lands on that row it will expand and stick while you have a re spin. If you choose 2 rows as hotlines this doubles your bet and if you choose all 3 as hotlines it will treble your initial bet but give you 3 times the chance of a full screen of wilds. Personally I think most will play it with 1 hotline as this keeps the game at it’s highest variance. Activate all 3 and you will see a lot more wilds but your wins will be a 1/3rd of what they would be with 1 hotline making it low to medium variance. However, as with Koi Princess some people prefer more eye candy and lower variance as they are playing for entertainment rather than the chance to hit a mega big win.
The pays shown for Hotline are calculated by coin value, you can see the basic low paying symbols are different items of jewellery that Kitti Weiss has stolen, the pink symbol being worth 2x for 5 of a kind
Next we have the premium symbols with Kitty Weiss being the highest paying symbol paying a whopping 13.33 x for 5 of a kind if you had 1 hotline activated which means the max win in a spin is 400x for a full screen of her or wilds. Bear in mind with 2 hotlines activated that win would be 200x and with all 3 activated it would be 133.33x so you can see how the variance is adjusted depending on how you play.
Final Thoughts On Hotline
Iv had a small play on the game and even though Im a fan of the 80’s Im not sure I’ll play this much, I think it could potentially be a good game for wagering and I am a big fan of the 80’s in general as it reminds me of my childhood. The game launched today and has an RTP of 96.13% to 97.04% depending on the amount of hotlines you play, if you do fancy a few spins on this new slot your in luck as Betvictor have just launched the game today!
