Slots have been, and they remain to be the simplest casino games to play. They are also easy to access and understand. You don’t need to be a master of strategies or a critical thinker as is the case with some casino games. If you are a fan of slots, you know that it’s about spinning the reels and going. 

Now, here is the real story. With hundreds of slot games and machines available these days in casinos, choosing which slot to play can be a hassle. In this article, we explore two popular summer hits in the UK you can consider namely: Hotline 2 and DogHouse Megaways. You can find these slot games in their online slots UK category. 

Hotline 2

Hotline 2 is not just another release or update of version 1, but it is a slot that comes with amazing features. If you’ve not taken the time to assess it, you might think that it’s not different from Hotline 1. But that’s not the case. 

There are amazing alterations you’ll no doubt find amazing as a slot player. What changed?

First, let’s begin with the soundtrack. It will remind you of popular movies and TV shows in the 80s. Why use such a track? It has a great role to play. It makes the whole thing versatile and enjoyable as well. Most precisely, it is a perfect soundtrack that goes well with a wide range of activities. 

The audiovisuals also have an improvement that makes this slot a perfect summer hit for casino slots enthusiasts. Someone who has analyzed it carefully might argue that the graphics are not that good especially now when there are amazing ones out there. Indeed, while the graphic cards it uses may not be the latest, they are perfect for the theme. 

Another thing to note about Hotline 2 is the theatrics. Talk about Karoline Wagner, the phenomenal guest star and you realize that there’s a lot to enjoy. So, in a nutshell, if you haven’t already played Hotline 2, then this is not just another slot. 

You don’t just play it, but you get lost to it. Indeed, the developer, NetEnt, gives you the best! 

Quick Hotline 2 Takeaways

In a nutshell, Hotline 2 has quite some new stuff to offer. 

The features are great, and the slot is simple and fun to play. It is, therefore, a perfect fit for a player who wants a straightforward game. 

The best part? You can make it even more interesting than you ever imagined, depending on how you play it. 

DogHouse Megaways 

When it was released first in the year 2019, DogHouse won the hearts of many slot enthusiasts for many reasons. First, it was a big studio hit and a welcome one for the casino fans. Secondly, its features, such as the cartoon hounds resonated strongly with players. It’s still the case by the way. 

Now, to the current DogHouse mega ways, there are lots of things to note. While the features are less the same as those of the original version, there are new additions you should beware of as a player. There are not many anyway. Just one or two things added, but it is good to note. 

One great addition to note is a feature called Raining wilds free spins that when triggered 3, 4, 5, or 6 scatters, awards you 15, 18, 25, or 30 spins respectively. But, that’s not all. You also get a chance to buy bonuses instead of waiting for more than three scatters to appear. 

The other thing to remember is that you can only trigger the bonus game once you land three or more scatter symbols. Also, the moment you trigger the bonus game, you have the freedom to choose between sticky wilds free spins and raining wilds free spins. 

You might already beware of these features if you had mastered the original DogHouse. 

Quick DogHouse Megaways Takeaways 

Generally, DogHouse Megaways is a great version though not very different from the original version. It is, however, a reliable release that looks great. As already explained, it all depends on what angle you look at it. 

If you want something that retains the original mega way experience, then this is a perfect slot. However, if you were expecting changes, then do not feel disappointed when you realize they are not much different from what you already knew. 

Slots Are Enjoyable When You Know How to Hit the Right

You’ll agree with us that slots are among the best casino games. They are easily available, and you do not need to be a guru to play them. 

Find the best casino and enjoy the new Hotlines 2 and DogHouse Megaways!
