Energy Casino has recently added the retro-themed Hotline slot from NetEnt to their casino, step back to the 1980’s and indulge in the lavish lifestyle of the Miami police, in a tale of jewel thieves and car chases which has been heavily influenced from the popular Miami Vice TV series.
The opening Intro movie and retro synth soundtrack do a brilliant job of setting the scene for the Hotline slot, one thing you can generally rely on from NetEnt is a graphically slick release!
The Hotline slot is a regular 5×3 reel slot with 30 paylines but does introduce a couple of new interesting features to get your teeth into, firstly there is a special Hotline Bonus Bet feature which is activated by clicking any of the 3 rows to the left of the slot which then become highlighted in yellow with “Hotline” splashing across the reels.
In normal base gameplay which costs 15 credits just 1 of the Hotlines are active, you can, of course, activate all 3 of the Hotlines but pay a premium of 45 credits to have all 3 activated whilst the paytable coin values remain unchanged, basically you pay a premium price to have all of the functionality activated.
The advantage of having all 3 hotlines activated is thanks to the special Expanding Wilds feature, when a wild symbol lands on an activated Hotline this will expand to cover the entire reel (Wild Reel) and grant a re-spin of the reels, if any further wilds land on any hotlines this process then repeats, with full screens of wilds possible.
Things heat up even further during the bonus round which is triggered by the 3 regular scatter symbols, with 7 free spins awarded, during the bonus any wilds that land on hotlines during the free spins remain on the reels for the rest of the bonus round.
You can check out all of these special features in the Hotline gameplay video below.
