COMING SOON: NEW NETENT SLOT HOTLINE 2
Published: July 28, 2020
Coming soon (Monday, August 24th) to some of our reviewed Canadian online casinos is the sequel to the hugely successful Hotline online slot from NetEnt that first arrived in casinos back in February 2018. If you enjoyed playing on the original Hotline slot, then you’re going to love playing on the new Hotline 2 online slot, which promises to be even more thrilling.
The new Hotline 2 slot from NetEnt will be released simultaneously on desktop and mobile, and you’ll be able to launch it instantly in your web browser as soon as it’s released over at Casino.com and Mansion Casino. Canadian players will have access to this 1980’s/Miami/Retro-themed online slot in the real money mode and free play demo mode, and the wide betting range will cater to everyone from low rollers to high rollers.
You will be able to take one spin of the reels from as little as C$0.30 up to a maximum of C$150.00 per spin, and on any lucky spin during the main Free Spins Bonus Round, you will be playing to win up to 5,184x times your total stake. Just like the original game, this exciting new sequel is all about the special ‘Hotline’ game mechanic. There are 5 reels, and with each spin that you take during normal play, there are 243 different win ways.
The original game had Hotline areas/zones that stretched across the reels from left to right on ROWS 1, 2 and 3. With this new version, the Hotline areas are, in fact, the REELS 2, 3 and 4 (from top to bottom, not rows from left to right). You can play with just 1 Hotline per spin, or you can spend a little extra per spin to activate even more hotlines, and then whenever a Wild Symbol lands on one or more of those activated Hotlines, any Wild Symbols that are in view will expand to help create even bigger wins for you.
You can pay for two Hotlines on reels 3 and 4 by selecting the DOUBLE BET option, or you can pay for three Hotlines on reels 2, 3 and 4 by selecting the TRIPLE BET option. When three or more Scatter Symbols land on the reels at the same time, the main Free Spins Bonus will activate, and then each time a Wild Symbol lands on an active Hotline during the bonus, the reel will expand, and it will increase the number of win ways that are active.
You will start with a minimum guaranteed bonus of 7 Free Spins, and if you are lucky enough to unlock all of the symbol positions by fully expanding all of the reels, you will be playing with as many as 1,944 active win ways. You will also receive an extra 2 Free Spins each time you manage to fully unlock a reel from top to bottom. The new Hotline 2 online slot looks like a brilliant sequel, and I can’t wait for it to arrive.
