Love the 1980s, especially Miami Vice? If so, you’ll certainly enjoy this slot, which is unashamedly based on the hit TV series. This slot from NetEnt, which can be played using a desktop or pretty much any mobile device, offers a couple of really exciting features, plus the electronic soundtrack accompanying every spin really adds to the playing experience.
Even if you’ve never heard of Miami Vice, you should still enjoy this slot. Find out more by reading our Hotline video slot review below…
The first thing to say is this: Hotline looks superb. Unlike other online casino games, it doesn’t have 3D graphics or fancy animations, however it manages to nail the 80s vibe perfectly. The reels are set against a seafront road at sunset, which is presumably in Miami, and all symbols at this slot have been carefully created. We particularly like the way different pieces of jewellery have been used to represent the lower paying symbols, instead of simply going for 10-A symbols or playing card suits.
Hotline is a game that starts with an RTP of 96.13%, however this increases to 96.70% when you activate two hotlines, and 97.04% when three hotlines are activated. You can find out more about hotlines later in this Hotline video game review. The slot has 30 fixed paylines and the minimum bet is £0.15. The maximum that can be bet is £150. Those lucky enough to hit the jackpot will find themselves winning a prize of 200x their bet amount.
Hotline Gaming Slot Bonuses
Aside from the red Ferrari, which is the wild symbol at this slot, there are two main bonus features to talk about. The first of these is the Hotline feature. You’ll see that one row has a light next to, and if any wild lands on this row, it will expand to cover the entire reel. A free re-spin is then given, with the expanded wild in place. It is possible to pay extra and also light up the second and third rows.
The other feature is the free spins, and these are triggered by landing three scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. The free spins are the highlight of this game. You’ll get seven in total and they can’t be retrigged. While they’re active, any wild symbol activated by the Hotline will stay in place for the duration of the free spins.
