Our Verdict:

As a slot game Hot Ink is definitely well worth a try.  When you log on you will be instantly greeted by a fantastic rock music soundtrack that plays throughout as you spin.  The slot itself also looks great, with some of the most sought after tattoo designs being turned into symbols.    We also appreciate a well-designed 1024 ways to win slot, as they make a welcome change from the more standard 25 payline slots.  You will also be able to enjoy some creative bonus features, and being there is a few of them if you don't like the one you can always try another.

Wild Symbol:

As we mentioned before the symbols on the reels of Hot Ink are decorated with some sought after tattoo designs including a heart.  You also have some higher value symbols which are items to do with the shop itself including the chair, tattooist, and two female customers.   The wild symbol is this game the Hot Ink logo symbol, and this will is a bonus symbol which complete combinations by as substituting for what symbol is needed.

Tattoo Bonus:

Finally, we have the bonus game. When the tattoo bonus symbol appears, 3, 4 or 5 times players will be transported to the studio. On this screen, you will have the chance to select 3, 4 or 5 albums, depending on how many triggering symbols appeared, which will each reveal a prize. Players can win themselves cash prizes or free spins with multipliers in this bonus!

Free Spins:

Although you can earn free spins in the Tattoo Bonus Game, the proper free spins round is triggered only when landing 3 or more of the Koi Fish tattoo symbol.  Once triggered you will receive 20 free spins with a 2x multiplier and the possibility of retriggering them during your spins.

ReSpin Feature:

Out of all the features the Re-Spin feature is the most creative on Hot Ink.  After each spin, you can choose to pick one reel to re-spin and find a win.  The re-spin will cost you, but the price will depend on the likelihood of landing a win.
