Can you get this game from 243 to 1944 ways to win? Watch as everything expands in this Hotline 2 mobile slot that boasts a top win of 1 million.
If you have played the original Hotline slot by NetEnt, you’ll instantly recognise the theme in this Hotline 2 slot – it’s more or less the same, only a little updated.
You are still in the 80s, hanging out with two cops from the Miami Vice, chasing a beautiful mastermind jewel thief. Along the way, there will be car chases, seedy bars and beautiful gems.
The beautiful gems are the low paying symbols, whilst the characters are the higher paying ones. And with 243 ways to win, and no multiplier, the paytable sets you up nicely for some good wins.
This Hotline 2 slot has a bonus bet. If you leave the game alone, you have the Hotline on reel 3. This means that if any wild symbols land on the hotline, it will expand and cover the whole reel.
But for double your bet, you can also hotline reel 4. For triple your bet you can hotline reel 2. And that’s all the Hotlines, because the wild symbols only appear on reels 2 to 4.
To be honest, it’s worth it. Tripling your bet sounds like a lot, but it simply raises the minimum bet of 0.10 a spin to 0.30 a spin. More importantly, the RTP of this Hotline 2 slot machine increases significantly.
In other words, if you can’t buy that extra bet, you should probably go play on other NetEnt slot machines.
Absolutely. It has that top win of 1 million in cash, but if you don’t play at max bet of 150 a spin, what that translates to is 6,666x your bet top win.
How you get there is by having all 3 hotlines active and triggering the free spins. Because during the bonus games, anytime a wild shows up, the reels increase by 1 upwards, up to 6 rows high.
You can do this whether or not you have the bonus bet on, but Hotline 2 slot gives you the opportunity to open up a 1944 ways to win game with expanded wilds on 3 out of 5 reels.
That’s how you get the earth-shattering wins, and why this real money game has a buy the bonus feature – though use at your own risk, as this fairly volatile Hotline 2 game can be a little unpredictable.

Hotline Feature: This is a bonus bet feature where you buy hotlines - ie. the number of reels that can have expanded wilds. The more hotlines you have activated, the higher you chances of catching expanding wilds in the main game and in the free spins.
Wilds and Expanding Wilds Symbol: A wild symbol is the car chase, and if it lands in a hotline it will expand to cover the whole reel. The wild only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 of this Hotline 2 online slot game.
Free Spins: 3 neon flamingo sign scatter symbols appearing on the reels will trigger 7 free spins.
Anytime a wild symbol appears on the reels, it will expand the reels by one symbol and increase the ways to win.
If the wild falls on a hotline, it will expand and cover the reel and give you +2 free spins. If the wild lands on a non-hotline, it will just expand the ways to win and give you a +1 free spin.
You can expand the 3 middle reels up to 6 symbols and up to 1944 ways to win. When a reel reaches its maximum height, it awards additional free spins.
Buy Feature: At any time you can buy the free spins either with 1, 2 or 3 Hotlines. This feature will cost you 60x your bet.
We had a surprisingly good time playing on this Hotline 2 slot on mobile, and not just because it has that cool 80s vibe going on.
Of course, you have to accept that you need to activate all 3 hotlines in order to get the most out of this game. So just keep an eye on the betting level, though a minimum of 0.30 a spin is within a lot of peoples budgets.
Otherwise, stick around and enjoy a brilliant NetEnt game that gives you lots of expanded wilds and expanded reels.
