Hotline 2 by NetEnt
Hit the streets of Miami once again with detectives Quinn and Riviera as Hotline 2 brings the popular duo back for a new case regarding a jewellery heist. Players who have enjoyed the original Hotline slot by NetEnt, will be thrilled to see the cool detectives back in action in this sequel.
NetEnt had a lot of success with the first Hotline and they are bringing back everything that worked in the original and something extra. Players will be treated to the sight of a Miami sunset as they pursue Kitty Weiss, the main suspect in the investigation. The background music will get your pulse going as the game progresses.
As for the gameplay, it has the usual five reels and three rows for its grid. Instead of normal paylines though, players will have 243 ways to win. The game has the usual mix of symbols. The card royals make up the low-value icons, while the four characters bring in the big wins. Players will find Kitty and the detectives and the Mic Drop Guy liven things up. Players will want to score Kitty since she brings the biggest wins. Considering the game’s RTP of 96.05 percent, players have a pretty good chance of winning.
When it comes to special features, the game has two special symbols. This includes the Flamingo Scatter and the Wilds. The Wild symbols are simple to explain since they substitute for all basic symbols, which makes winning easier. Additionally, if a Wild lands in a middle reel, it can expand and take over the reel.
Players can also score the scatter symbols that give players free spins. During these spins, when a wild shows up, another row is added for an increased number of wins. The maximum number of ways to win is 1,944 so players will want to use the free spins to increase their chances of winning.
Gold Volcano by Play’N Go
Volcanoes are one of Earth’s wonders and to see their fury is an incredible treat. A lot of tourist destinations around the world involve visiting dormant volcano sites just to give people an idea of what a volcano is all about.
The new slot game from Play’N Go takes inspiration from this concept but takes things to another level. The new game is called Gold Volcano and players will be taken to the foot of a volcano just before the sun can rise. The developer has done a great job with the visuals and background sound, making the experience as real as possible.
Players will be presented with an interesting set-up. There are eight reels to play with and they range in height from three to six symbols high. Players will need to aim to get four or more symbols in a cluster instead of paylines. This game currently has an RTP of 96.20 which is good considering the cluster setup.
The symbols for the game are an interesting mix. The premise of the game involves the volcano spewing out riches and hence all of the game’s symbols are precious stones. The four playing card suits: Spades, Diamonds, Clubs, and Hearts are present and they are in diamond form. The more valuable symbols come in the form of various gems. This includes the Green, Red, Purple, and Gold Gemstones. The most valuable symbol is the Gold one. Really lucky players can score a large cluster of gold symbols and get 1,000 times their stake.
In this game, players are hoping to score big, which is why they wait for the explosion when prizes are easier to get. The volcano can provide player bonuses when it is dormant. For example, the grid can shuffle the symbols around, lava may explode and add more symbols, and wilds can be excavated and placed all over the grid. Players already have a good chance of winning because of the Pressure feature which removes successful combinations and drops new ones. Overall, the game is fun and enjoyable and certainly worth a few spins.
