Hot Ink is inspired by the creative world of body art. As the name suggests, the theme is centred on body art and tattoo parlours. The scene is set inside a tattoo parlour, complete with tattoo artists, artist’s chairs, tattoos and of course, an array of gorgeous women.
Hot Ink does not include typical paylines, but instead is based on the popular 1 024 ways to win concept. It does feature 5 reels, with 4 rows of symbols appearing on each reel, as well as a Free Spins Bonus Round.
Hot Ink Symbols
Symbols include photo images taken of the inside as well as the exterior view of the Hot Ink Tattoo Parlour, images of a variety of tattoo artists, as well as a stunning selection of tattoo designs, including a flaming dice, cherry 8-balls, winged hearts, lucky horseshoes and a four-leafed clover. The symbols featured truly support the strong central theme of luck that one would associate with a whopping 1 024 possible winning combinations.
The aim of the game is to land a combination of 3 or more matching symbols, adjacent to one another, on the reels like in many pokies for real money.
Interface and Sound Effects
Hot Ink is complimented by stunning images, fascinating animated effects and attention-grabbing sound effects. Rock music resonates in the background, lending a classic tattoo parlour feel to the experience.
The game interface is user-friendly, and very easy to navigate.
Hot Ink is available for play on most platforms, making it widely accessible to a wide spectrum of players. Pre-play registration and download is not typically required, and Hot Ink may be played for free or for real money.
Betting options are flexible, making Hot Ink attractive to conservative players as well as high rollers.
Tattoo Bonus Symbols
The Tattoo Bonus game is triggered when 3 or more of the tattoo bonus symbols appear anywhere on the 5 reels. During the bonus game, the player is presented with three portfolio albums, one for legs, one for arms and the third for back tattoos. Clicking on the albums reveals the tattoo designs hidden inside. Should the 3 designs match, a total of 10 free spins are awarded. All credits won during the free spins rounds are multiplied by 2.
Hot Ink Logo Wild Symbol
The wild symbol is represented by the Hot Ink Logo. The Hot Ink Logo substitutes for all other symbols, with the exception of the scatter symbol, completing a winning combination when it does so.
Hot Ink Koi Fish Scatter Symbol
A visual highlight is catching a glimpse of the Hot Ink scatter symbol, represented by the splendid image of a Koi fish. The scatter is not only beautiful to look at, but also triggers a total of 20 free spins for every combination of 3 or more landed anywhere on the reels. The free spins bonus rounds can be re-triggered by landing additional scatter symbols on the reels during any of the existing free spins rounds.
Hot Ink Jackpot
Hot Ink is a non-progressive game, but the Jackpot is a lucrative 10 000 credits.
