Are you ready to go back to Miami in the 80s in the sequel of the popular NetEnt title, bringing back two famous detectives, Quinn and Riviera?

Hotline 2 is an action-themed game, taking punters on an adventure to investigate a jewellery store robbery in sunny Miami.

But, be prepared, as this won't be just an ordinary chase since Kitty Weiss is here to make things a little bit more complicated!

Following the same level of activity as we have experienced in its predecessor, this 5-reeled release features beautiful palm trees and warm Miami weather that will surely make your chase easier!

And What About The Theme?

As we have seen in the previous release by the same name, the game features the Miami Vice inspired design with 80s-style graphics and a retro soundtrack.

The whole scene looks like a postcard, especially due to the pastel colours coming from the sunset.

The background shows a scenic view of the city streets with palm trees and calm seas surrounding the reels.

The symbols revolve around four main characters, six low-value gems in green, blue, purple, orange, red and pink, along with...

...the Wild represented by a red sports car and the Scatter showing a neon-lit flamingo marked with the word itself. 

Despite the retro 80s theme, this gems-themed game can be played on all devices – desktop, mobile and tablet. 

How Much Can We Bet?

Played on 5 reels and 3 rows, Hotline 2 offers 243 pay lines during the base game, while punters need 3 or more symbols in combination to make a win. 

In order to join the two detectives on their investigation, you need to set your bets that start from $0.30 and go up to $150.

The game boasts medium volatility with an RTP of 96.05%, while you could also choose the Autoplay function that allows you to choose between 10 and 1,000 auto-spins. 

Symbols on the reels include 6 jewellery items including necklaces, rings and solitary stones, followed by a guy wearing a mic and Detectives Quinn and Riviera.

The most rewarding symbol is Kitty Weiss, paying 0.66, 1.66 or 2.66 x stake for 3, 4 or 5 of a kind.

The Wild car appears only on reels 2-4 substituting for all symbols except the scatter, while it can also expand if resulting in a winning combination.

Besides, during the Free Spins, the size of the reels increases to a 3-6-6-6-3 format for up to 1,944 bet ways!

Let's see what this is about!

What Special Features Can We Expect?

When it comes to parts that differ the sequel from the original release, NetEnt decided they would be in the form of features, which is what punters would probably appreciate the most.

The game boasts a new reel set, a random modifier and a different free spin feature

Following the first release, Hotline 2 includes a Hotline mechanic, but it works a little differently this time.

Here, the middle three reels make up the Hotline zone which can be activated individually, but also more reels can be turned into hotlines by using the Double Bet and Triple Bet!

This feature is especially important when it comes to Wild symbols.

Wild and Expanding Wild symbol substitution pays the highest possible winning combination on a betway, but if a Wild symbol lands on a Hotline, it expands to cover the entire reel.

This is the Expanding Wild feature, and here, you could end up with 3 wild reels per spin.

Pay attention to the Neon pink flamingo, as three of these symbols that appear on the reels 2, 3 and 4 will trigger the Free Spins feature and reward you 7 extra spins. 

Here, landing wilds on the Hotlines will also lead to wild reels, but also more symbols on the Hotlines.

The maximum the three Hotline reels can expand in height is 6 rows, creating 1,944 bet ways, but, after the Hotline reel reaches its maximum height, 2 additional free spins are rewarded.

What Can We Conclude?

Well, if you loved the first Hotline slot, you will definitely enjoy the sequel, as it not only comes with the same kind of a soundtrack, following the perfect 80s vibe, but it also features some new exciting features!

With good gameplay, interesting theme and the maximum potential of 5,184 times the stake, even the punters who face this game for the first time should surely give it a try.
