Hot Ink online slots is inspired by the vivid world of body art.  As the name suggests, the theme is centred around all things tattoo.  The scene is set inside a tattoo parlour, complete with tattoo artists, artist’s chairs, tattoos and of course, an assortment of gorgeous women.

Hot Ink is slightly unconventional in that it has no paylines.  It does feature 5 reels, with 4 rows of symbols appearing on each real, and an estimated 1 024 ways in which to win.

Interface and Sound Effects

Hot Ink is complimented by stunning images, fascinating animative 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 very user-friendly, and the options for play quite easy to decipher.

Tattoos may not be everyone’s cup of tea in everyday life, but winning certainly is.  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.

Hot Ink is rooted rather in quirk and an old-fashioned approach,  than popular cinematic effects.  This adds a sense of real value and timelessness to the experience.

Hot Ink Symbols

Symbols include shots taken of the inside as well as the exterior view of the Hot Ink Tattoo Parlour,  portraits 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-leaf clover.  The symbols selected really drive home the strong central theme of luck that one would associate with 1 024 possible winning combinations.

Hot Ink Slot Symbols

Hot Ink Logo Wild Symbol

Like wilds in many pokies Australia, 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.

Hot Ink Koi Fish Scatter Symbol

A visual highlight is catching a glimpse of the Hot Ink scatter symbol, represented by a splendid image of a Koi fish.  The scatter is not only simply opulent to look at, but also triggers a total of 20 free spins for every 3 or more landed on the reels.  A pleasant added benefit is that free spins rounds can be re-triggered by landing additional scatter symbols on the reels during an already free spins round.

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 Jackpot

Hot Ink is a non-progressive game, but the Jackpot rolls in at 10 000 credits.
