For all you tattoo fans out there, Hot Ink slots is the slot game for you! And even for those who are not, it is an interesting enough change of pace to play a slot game based on a theme that is so refreshingly unique. The game elements are designed based on specific features that remind you so distinctly of a tattoo parlor. The tattoo parlor itself is a symbol and so is the tattoo chair, the tattoo artist, and his two pretty assistants, Angel and Luci. Other symbols in the game are designed based on popular tattoos such as a star, a winged devil heart with horns and a spiked tail, flaming dice, cherries, horseshoe, and a fish that also converts into Yin and Yang symbols.
Besides offering independent payouts for each symbol, the female assistants also offer mixed payout when either of them feature in a winning combination. The background score is lively and is designed to recreate the atmosphere of a busy tattoo parlor.
Hot Ink Slot Features
The Wild Symbol is represented by the Hot Ink logo and fulfills its usual function of standing in for any symbol in a winning combination. However, in this game, scoring three or more Wilds also automatically initiates the Tattoo Bonus round. You can find out more about that in the Bonus Round section.
The Yin Yang Koi fish symbol in the game is also the Scatter symbol. When three of these Scatter symbols land on any of the five reels, it gives a payout as well as triggering a free spin round of 20 spins in which all the winnings are doubled.
The are two Free Spins rounds in the Hot Ink slot game. Scoring three or more of the Hot Ink symbols leads to a Tattoo Bonus round (which you can read about in the next section), which in turn leads to 10 free spins on winning, with a 2x multiplier applied to the payout in that round. This round has a maximum jackpot of 122,500 coins.
The second round of Free Spins is initiated when three or more Scatter symbols, which are represented by the purple and blue Koi fish, land on the reels. This provides the player with 20 free spins, again with a 2x multiplier on the winnings.
The bonus round is triggered whenever three or more of the Hot Ink symbols land on the reels. This round is called the Tattoo Bonus and features an album containing pictures of tattoos on different parts of the body – arm, leg, and back. If you happen to select three tattoos that form a matching set, it gives you 10 free spins with a payout multiplier of 2x for that round.
