A Closer Look at NetEnt’s New Hotline Slot

Published: April 13, 2018

The new Hotline online slot machine from NetEnt can now be found at Casino.com. This awesome new NetEnt slot has a 1980’s / Miami / Retro theme with 5 reels and 30 paylines. This game can be launched instantly in your web browser, no download required, and it’s available on desktop and on mobile. Before we take a closer look at this game, let’s find out what the Hotline Bonus Bet Feature is.

This game has 3x Hotlines and a Hotline is basically a row of symbols. For example there’s the top row of symbols Hotline, the middle row of symbols Hotline and the bottom row of symbols Hotline and you can play each spin with 1, 2 or 3 Hotlines active. Depending on how many Hotlines you play each spin will also determine the exact cost per spin.

For example the lowest cost per spin with just 1 Hotline active starts from just 0.15 coins. With 2 Hotlines active it will cost you 0.30 coins and with all 3 Hotlines active it will cost you 0.45 coins per spin. We recommend playing each spin with all 3 Hotlines active, but only if you can afford it. Having a Hotline active will increase the chance of landing Expanding Wilds and triggering Re-Spins.

The Wild Symbol is the Red Ferrari and this will substitute all of the symbols on the reels apart from the Scatter Symbol. If a Wild Symbol lands on in any position on an active Hotline, it will instantly expand to cover an entire reel from top to bottom. That’s not all though. This will also trigger 1 FREE RE-SPIN of the remaining reels. The Expanding Wild Symbol(s) will then remain locked in position until the re-spin has finished.

This is a fun new feature from NetEnt and the wins seem to be quite frequent and big, but only when playing with all 3 Hotlines active per spin. The Scatter Symbol is the Sunset and these ones will only ever land on reels 1, 3 and 5. When all three of these reels each contain at least 1 Scatter Symbols you will instantly receive a guaranteed bonus of 7 Free Spins.

The Chief Product Officer at NetEnt, Henrik Fagerlund, recently commented on this new slot, saying, “The innovative Hotline Bonus Bet feature has the ability to give players extra options, which also has some cool new mechanics to make it standout from other slot games.” He then finished by saying, “With this game we wanted to provide operators with the ultimate player entertainment by bringing the popular 80’s retro look and feel to our players and I believe we’ve achieved that with the creation of Hotline™ and its great soundtrack.” These comments came from the official NetEnt website.
