HOW TO PLAY HOTLINE
The reels are set on the hot streets of Miami, and gamers will have the impression they have dropped into one of the Miami Vice episodes, thanks to the retro soundtrack and the colourful graphics. There are eight symbols in total that appear on the reels. The lovely mysterious Lady with a cell phone is the highest-paying symbol of the slot, while Crockett and Tubs lookalikes are right behind her.
It seems that the lovely Lady is in fact the criminal chased by two detectives, and we reckon it is all about jewelry since Crowns, Necklaces and Bracelets appear as low-value icons. The Scatter triggers the Free Spins feature, and the Car is the Wild.
Like every other crime story, it may seem a bit complicated in the beginning, but soon enough experienced detectives will get the hang of it. There are a couple of things players need to pay attention to in the five-reel, three-row slot with 30 fixed paylines. First of all, the innovative Hotline Bonus Bet.
In the very beginning, one of three rows is an automatically active Hotline, meaning that if a Wild lands on a Hotline row, it will cover the entire reel. If you decide to activate more Hotlines (up to three, since there are three rows), the bet will increase. Gamers start with 15 coins per spin, and with the activation of additional Hotlines, a bet can go up to 30 and 45 coins per spin.
Also, there is the bet level (1-10), so punters can bet as low as $0.15 and as high as $450 per spin. The 2018 release pays left to right, starting from the leftmost reel, with three of a kind being the minimum for landing payouts.
