The new Hotline 2 online slot from NetEnt is officially set to arrive in casinos on Monday, August 24th, 2020. It’s the sequel to the popular Hotline online slot that has been keeping South African players entertained since it was released back in early 2018. If you enjoyed playing on the original Hotline slot, then I’m also fairly confident that you‘re going to love playing on this exciting new version too.
It has 5 reels and 243 different ways to win per spin, and the wide betting range will cater to everyone from low rollers to high rollers. You will be able to play on this new NetEnt slot either in the real money mode or free play demo mode from as little as 0.30 coins up to a maximum of 150.00 coins per spin, and you will be playing to win up to 5,184x times your total stake during the main Free Spins Bonus.
Central to the game is the Hotline game mechanic. You can play with 1, 2 or 3 Hotlines active per spin, and if a Wild Symbol lands on any of the active Hotlines during normal play, the Wild Symbol(s) will expand to create even more wins for you. On the original Hotline slot, Hotlines stretched across rows 1, 2 and 3, and from the left of the screen right the way across to the opposite side of the game window.
On the new Hotline 2 slot, the Hotlines are in a slightly different location. They now stretch from the top of the reel to the bottom of the reel on reels 2, 3 and 4 (the three middle reels). Playing with 1 active Hotline is standard but to play with 2 Hotlines active on reels 3 and 4, you must hit the DOUBLE BET button. To play with a maximum of 3 active Hotlines (on reels 2, 3 and 4), then you must hit the TRIPLE Bet button.
The Scatter Symbol is the Pink Neon Flamingo Sign, and you need three of these to land on the reels on the same spin to trigger a minimum guaranteed bonus of 7 Free Spins. Any Hotlines that were activated during normal play will also be active throughout the bonus. Better still, it’s possible to unlock extra symbol positions when landing Wild Symbols on any of the Hotlines.
Unlocking extra symbol positions will also increase the number of win ways that are active (up to a maximum of 1,944), plus you will also receive 2 more Free Spins each time you unlock a reel. The new Hotline 2 online slot from NetEnt looks as though it will be just as popular as the original, so don’t forget to check it out as soon as it arrives next month at trusted South African online casinos such as Casino.com and Mansion Casino. It will take just seconds to launch in most web browsers, and you’ll be able to enjoy playing either on desktop or mobile.
