Hotline win? NetEnt offers tantalising look at Miami Vice-style new slot

  • NetEnt slot claims to offer players ability to determine its volatility
  • Hotlines create expanding wilds and the chance for big win potential in free spins round

Miami in the 1980s – its iconic pastel colored Italian jackets worn with T-shirts, linen pants and sockless loafers, cops running around looking effortlessly cool in fast cars and those Art Deco hotels.

Or maybe that’s just the image brought by Miami Vice.

In any case, that imagery brought to us so vividly by the cop drama has all been pulled together for NetEnt’s latest slot which brings all of that glamor, wealth and slightly seedy undertone to the reels.

Hotline is offering a jackpot of up to 60,000 coins, re-spins potential, free spins and other bonuses.

Why, that sounds hotter than the sleek curves of a Ferrari Testarossa.

What we know

Why the slot is called Hotline isn’t abundantly clear until you see that they are actually a feature of the game.

Hotlines are a bonus bet which can expand wilds, giving bigger wins.

Three scatters generates the free spins round where the Hotlines are active. Those Hotlines can really boost the win potential.

This is the first slot to offer the Hotline Bonus bet mechanic. The player chooses which row they want to be the Hotline. Any wild landing in the hotline expands to fill the reel.

In the free spins round, those expanded wilds stay put until the end of the round, and that’s when the big wins can come.

For an additional wager, players can activate more Hotlines, which obviously improves the chances of a wild landing on a hotline.

The advantage here is that the slot can then be viewed as offering the volatility that the player wants, meaning there is something for all play levels.

Where to play

You’ll have to put the breaks on for a while with this slot – the estimated launch date is March 22, 2018.
