Hotline 2 (NetEnt)

Hotline 2 (NetEnt)Hotline 2 is a sequel for a previous slot from his developer. It’s a slot that takes us to the Miami of the 80s.  

Hotline 2 is characterised by palm trees, gorgeous ocean view, and some warm weather, besides the all too common activities synonymous with life in Miami.

The slot delivers a very nice gaming experience, and it’s enough proof that NetEnt hasn’t lost touch with the industry.

This is my review of Hotline 2:

Game Set-Up

5x3 is what the slot’s reels are made of: these will also get up to 243 ways to win. However, on a few occasions, the setup will expand to as many as 1,944 ways.

I believe NetEnt has been quite fair with the payouts, especially when you consider that this slot is Medium in volatility.

Betting and Prizes

From as little as $0.30 you will be able to get the reels spinning. NetEnt allows the use of as much as $150 per spin. This makes Hotline 2 a very attractive game to high rollers.  

NetEnt has kept this slot’s volatility as low as possible, and the RTP of 96.05% that has been provided work perfectly well.

For its rewards, Hotline 2 offers a maximum payout of 5,184x the stake.

Hotline 2 Slot Features

On this slot, you will come across an interesting gaming session whereby; the game area turns the middle columns (3) into a single Hotline zone.

Hotline 2 uses expanding wilds, and this will be the case each time they appear in the middle reels. These wild symbols will be useful when you want to replace the regular symbols.

The other common feature with slots is the scatter, and it’s present on Hotline 2 as well. It is the feature that you will use to get the free spins. On Hotline 2, the free spins will be activated by landing on at least 3 scatter symbols. In return, you will be rewarded with 7 free spins.

Within the middle 3 reels, you can get as many as 6 positions, while the number of ways to win can go to as high as1, 944.

The random feature goes by the slot’s title, and it’s known as the Hotline. With its help, you will get up to 3 wild reels that you can use for the given round.

Theme & Design

This slot borrows much of its inspiration from Miami Vice, and it takes the setup of an 80s style city.

The city trees feature prominently in the background, and the streets are decorated with some palm trees on the sides.

NetEnt uses a mix of symbols, and these revolve around the games four main characters. Low-value icons come in the form of jewellery, in addition to the scatters and wild symbols.

Hotline 2 offers a retro vibe, and the developer has done a great job with the design.


Hotline 2 is a great improvement from the original game. For this newer version, NetEnt has improved the pay scale, besides adding excellent graphics, and Medium volatility.

This is one of the best slots that both casual and professional gamers can enjoy. I highly recommend it to all levels of players.
