Where did Hot Ink slots come from?

Hot Ink is another masterpiece from the creative geniuses over at Microgaming: one of the most well-renowned and popular online casino game software designers and manufacturers in the world. As it is part of the Microgaming output it also features its renowned pay-line structure: that’s four rows and five reels, giving you the chance to win as long as the symbols that you need are across adjacent reels.

Of course, as tattoos are the theme of the game there are a host of tattoo related symbols. These include those with low values, represented by small tattoos such as horseshoes and hearts; and those with higher values such as the things you would see in a typical tattoo artist shop like a chair, the shop itself, the tattoo artist and some female customers.

What are the special features of the Hot Ink slots game?

There are many great features to Hot Ink, but the range of bonuses is the real reason to play – with a fish tattoo giving you the chance to enjoy free spins; and a Hot Ink logo representing wild play.

- Respins: One of the more interesting innovations of the Hot Ink game will give you the chance to spin one of the reels again to increase your chances of winning. Each respin will cost a little extra and each reel is priced based on the chance of a win actually being achieved.

- Tattoo bonus: In the case you find three-five tattoo bonus scatter symbols across the reels you will earn the chance to play a mini game. Here you are presented with three books of tattoos and you have to click them and hope to find the same tattoo in each. If you achieved this then you are awarded with 10 free spins and the chance for all wins to be doubled. Don’t panic if you don’t, however, because there are still prizes to be won for every symbol shown.

- Free spins: If you are lucky enough to achieve three (or possibly more) fish symbols across the reels then you will enjoy 20 spins with all wins achieving double.

Remember if you’re playing Hot Ink that you shouldn’t be tempted to use the re-spin option too often as the chances of winning in the long term are still the same. Just spin once or twice and then you can return to the base game. Remember to pay close attention to the cost of the spin too.
