This mobile slot from 2020 brings you the sequel to Hotline Touch®. Therefore, you end up in a heated car chase in Hotline 2 Touch® which leads you through the streets of Miami.
It’s time to see the detectives Quinn and Riviera in action again. Of course, Femme Fatale Kitty Weiss is back on the reels as well. That’s how Miami’s most respected detectives know that the simple jewellery heist they’re investigating is more complicated than thought at first.
A sequel to a Hollywood film often brings a big disappointment, but it’s not the same with NetEnt slots. When NetEnt comes up with a sequel, it’s often better with even more innovations to enjoy!
What’s the newest innovation in Hotline 2 Touch®?
I played both games and I think the two mobile slots have a lot in common. Hotline Touch® already brought you some wild action in the streets of Miami. This didn’t change and in my opinion, you won’t notice too many changes in the design and theme either.
The detectives Quinn and Rivera as introduced in the Hotline™ slot, return to the reels in Hotline 2 Touch®. The same goes for the femme fatale Kitty Weiss, who’s still challenging the detectives.
The background of Hotline 2 Touch® looks as if it’s flipped horizontally. But like me, you don’t care much about the background or about the jewellery symbols. If you know Hotline Touch®, you probably want to know if the hotlines return. Like me!
And yes, of course, the hotlines return to the reels. There’s no sequel to Hotline Touch® without the successful hotlines feature. However, unlike the design and theme, the gameplay did change a lot.
The biggest change you find in the hotlines. In Hotline Touch®, they were placed horizontally over the rows. In its sequel, Hotline 2 Touch®, NetEnt placed the hotlines on reel 2, 3 and 4. These same hotlines have the ability to expand during the Free Spins feature which leads to a maximum of 1944 ways to win.
This mobile slot is all about the hotlines. There’s no way around it and that’s a good thing. So let me explain to you what a hotline is and how to activate more hotlines.
In Hotline 2 Touch®, the middle reel is a hotline. When you open the game, it’s this reel that is hotline if you don’t do anything. If you do something, you can:
- Deactivate the standard hotline and instead activate the hotline on reel 2 or 4.
- Activate 2 out of 3 hotlines
- Activate all 3 hotlines for the best chance to land Expanding Wilds on reel 1, 2 and 3.
Hotline 2 Touch® features
Now I explained the main feature in this action-packed video slot, it’s time to look at the rest of the mobile slot features available. To be honest, there’s not so much more. The hotlines are responsible for most action on the reels.
However, there’s two more slot feature that works perfectly well with the hotlines. It’s the Expanding Wild and the Free Spins feature. Of course, the hotlines are activated during the main game and during Free Spins. This leads to Expanding Wilds available during the main game and the Free Spins feature. But how does it work?
Expanding Wild Symbols
Wild symbols are pretty common in video slots, but in Hotline 2 Touch®, a Wild expands when it lands on one of the hotlines.
Wilds can appear on reels 2, 3, and 4 in the main game and Free Spins and substitute for all symbols except for Scatter symbols. When a Wild lands on a hotline, it expands to cover the entire reel.
Expanding Wild Symbols in Free Spins
Just like this was the case in the Hotline Touch®, three Scatters in Hotline 2 Touch® activates 7 Free Spins.
In Free Spins, it expands to cover the entire reel but it can also extend the reel from 3 to 6 symbols. Thanks to this new innovation in Hotline 2 Touch®, reel 2, 3 and 4 can expand to 6 symbols. As a result, the number of bet ways in Free Spins can increase from 243 to 1944.
When during Free Spins a reel reaches the 6 symbols, which is the maximum height, additional Free Spins are awarded.
If the Buy feature is available at your NetEnt Casino, you can activate Free Spins with 1, 2 or 3 Hotlines at any moment in the main game. Activating the Free Spins feature will cost you 60 times your bet.
