Hotline 2

  • Hotline 2™ is a 5-reel, 3-row video slot featuring Expanding Wild symbols, the Hotline feature, and Free Spins with expanding reels.
  • The game is played with 243 bet ways (up to 1944 in Free Spins) and different bet values, coin values, and bet levels (only when playing with coins).
  • There are no bet lines.
  • Matching symbols in any position on three or more adjacent reels, starting from the leftmost reel to the rightmost reel, result in a bet way win.
  • Bet way wins pay if in succession from the leftmost reel to the rightmost reel.
  • Example as follows:

                               15

  • More bet way wins are created when additional instances of the symbol appear on the same reels that create the longest bet way win.
  • The number of bet ways is equal to the heights of all reels multiplied.
  • Example as follows:

                           16

  • A bet way win is equal to the value shown in the Paytable.
  • Only the longest matching combination per symbol is paid.
  • Simultaneous wins on different bet ways are added.
  • Winning combinations and payouts are made according to the Paytable.
  • Symbol payout values shown in the Paytable are dynamic and change in accordance with the selected bet value.
  • The game can be played with cash or coins. To switch between cash and coins, go to the Game Settings. Note: Not all betting modes are available in all casinos.
  • BET is the amount of coins or cash to bet.
  • When playing with coins, the bet value is set by clicking the Bet Settings button and selecting the coin value and the bet level. When playing with cash, the bet value is set by clicking the Bet Settings button and selecting the bet.
  • BALANCE displays the amount of cash or coins available to bet.

Bet Way Payout Example

  • When playing with coins at bet level 1, 4 matching Kitty Weiss symbols on adjacent reels starting from the leftmost reel award 50 coins. This result is multiplied by 2 (for 2 Kitty Weiss symbols on reel 4), giving a total win of 2 x 50 = 100.
    When playing with cash, the bet way payout follows the same logic as when playing with coins, and the calculated outcome depends on the current bet value.

Hotline Feature

  • The Hotline feature is a Bonus Bet feature that increases the chance to win Expanding Wild symbols for a higher bet.
  • The game is played with the Base Bet and two Bonus Bet levels: the Double Bet and the Triple Bet.
  • At Base Bet, reel 3 is a Hotline.
  • When the Double Bet is activated, reels 3 and 4 are Hotlines, and the bet is doubled.
  • When the Triple Bet is activated, reels 2, 3 and 4 are Hotlines, and the bet is tripled.

Wild and Expanding Wild

  • Wild symbols can appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 in the main game and Free Spins and substitute for all symbols except for Scatter symbols.
  • In the main game, a Wild symbol landing on a Hotline expands to cover the entire reel if resulting in a bet way win.
  • In Free Spins, a Wild symbol landing on a Hotline always expands to cover the entire reel.
  • Wild and Expanding Wild symbol substitution pays the highest possible winning combination on a bet way according to the Paytable.

Free Spins and Reel Expansion

  • 3 Scatter symbols appearing on reels 2, 3 and 4 in the main game activate 7 Free Spins.
  • In Free Spins, a Wild symbol landing on reel 2, 3 or 4 increases the height of this reel by 1 symbol creating more bet ways.
  • The number of bet ways in Free Spins starts at 243 and can reach up to 1944 when the height of reels 2, 3 and 4 increases.
  • A Wild symbol landing on a Hotline expands after the reel height is increased and before the wins are evaluated.
  • The maximum reel height is 6 symbols.
  • A non-Hotline reel reaching its maximum height awards 1 additional Free Spin.
  • A Hotline reaching its maximum height awards 2 additional Free Spins.
  • Free Spins are played at the same bet and with the same Hotlines as the round that activated Free Spins.
  • At the end of Free Spins, the total win from Free Spins is added to any wins from the round that activated Free Spins.
  • At the end of Free Spins, the game returns to the round that activated Free Spins.
