Hot Ink is an interesting slot, especially if you happen to be a fan of tattoo art. Tattoos are very important to the theme of this slot machine, whose action appears to be taking place inside a parlor where you would get inked up. The designs and tattoo designs that you see are gorgeous, and the game has clearly been created by someone with an artistic sense. Besides the fact that it’s obviously a slot machine with a good design, it also offers interesting features, free spins, multipliers, scatters, respins and wilds being among them. The slot has 5 taller than usual reels, with a generous number of ways to win, 1024 total. You can get paid up to $25,000.
Betting and Prizes
Your wager needs to cover a lot of ways to win, so naturally there will be plenty of virtual lines that need to be kept active all the time. You get 50 lines for this purpose, and 50 coins is the minimum bet you can use. You can increase the line bet up to 10 coins though, so the top wager will have 500 coins in it. You decide what denominations will be used, where a minimum of $0.01 is required, while the maximum is at $0.25. The biggest wager mentioned in the game is worth $125.
The best prize seems to be the one that you get from the scatter, its 100x the bet reward bringing you 50,000 coins in the base game, or 100,000 coins during free spins. The value would be at $12,500 in the former case, or $25,000 in the latter.
Hot Ink Slot Features
A Respin feature can be found in this game, which is also included in a number of other slot machines from Microgaming. It allows you to pay a certain amount, in order to be able to respin a single reel, one which could get you the missing symbol required to form some high paying combination, or triggering a free spins feature. The price of the respin varies based on the possible outcome, so if you’re looking for the symbol needed to get you the top jackpot, it might be a very expensive respin.
The more regular list of features includes the wild, of course, a symbol that you use to get paid up to 10,000 coins when it forms a combination on a payline. If it acts as a substitute, it can be of use with regular icons, not with scatters.
Those scatters will show you an image with two gorgeous fish, colored in purple and light blue, circling each other. You get a prize that reaches 100x bet from them, and you also gain access to 20 free spins, where wins are all doubled. Free games may be retriggered.
Theme & Design
The inspiration for the theme of the game coming from a tattoo parlor, the reels are beautiful thanks to all the cool drawings that appear among the symbols. There are a couple of characters in there, as there are things like flaming dice, hearts with wings, horseshoes, 8 ball cherries and stars, among many others.
Hot Ink is a game that impresses with its graphics and with its many ways to win. Its features are also going to provide you with an interesting gameplay style, one which includes respins that you can trigger at will.
