Fans of the hit 1980s cop show Miami Vice will love Hotline 2, a slot so atmospheric you can almost touch the shoulder pads and smell the smoking tires on your Ferrari Daytona Spyder. Put on your white jacket (be sure to roll up the sleeves) and get ready to chase the baddies along Ocean Drive.

With a super-cool backing track that could have been performed by Jan Hammer (but wasn’t), and gorgeous graphics, this slot machine is well worth your attention. Happily, Hotline 2 is the Slot of the Week at TwinSpires Casino. Why should you care? Well, that means when you spend just $10 on the game, we’ll give you 20 free spins.

Now that we have your attention, let’s give you more information about how to get the most from the game.

How to play the Hotline 2 Slot Machine

Developer NetEnt has done a cracking job recreating the look and feel of a TV show beloved by so many. Hotline 2 is not an official Miami Vice licensed game, but the similarities are there for all to enjoy: the pair of dashing detectives, fast cars, pretty women, car chases and, naturally, the baddies. The criminals here are jewel thieves – drug gangs don’t make for much fun in the slots world (aside from Narcos).

First things first: marvel at the artwork. The five-reel slot is set against an ocean-side boulevard, with hotels like Palm Beach, palm trees, and the most exquisite sunset coloring. In the base game, you match symbols across the reels (only three rows), but with symbols able to be in any reel position, you get 256 ways to win.

The symbols are expensive-looking jewels of varying sizes and colors. Next is a police informant, followed by our two hero cops – and best of all, the devious Kitty Weiss. She’s bad news (but not for your payouts).

While trying to match up symbols in this way is all well and good (and the wilds will help in this regard), big money awaits in the free spins round. Trigger seven free spins by landing the Scatter symbols, featuring a neon figure of a pink flamingo between two palm trees.

In the free spins feature, any wild symbol landing on reels 2, 3, or 4 adds an additional symbol to the reel, increasing your winning chances. Fill a reel in this way to launch even more free spins. With a maximum of six symbols on these middle three reels, you could get 1,944 ways to win in the bonus round. On some online platforms, you can even purchase the free spins feature using the Buy Feature button.

Will Our Slot of the Week Benefit You?

NetEnt claims the Hotline 2 slot has a return to player percentage (RTP) of 96.05%, which places it slap bang on average. But in this case, the average is good! With your 20 free spins from our Slot of the Week feature, you should expect to turn some into cash wins.
