Do you like tattoos? Do you have any tattoos anywhere on your body? Is it exposed or hidden? Hmm, sorry, it's just my cat-like curiosity when it concerns tattoos. Nah, I don't have them, don't intend to have them either, because tattoos never caught on with me. But I do like to see them, not the normal simple ones though, but those beautiful colourful work of art. Those tattooists are real good artists, I can say that much, and I really wonder how they can keep calm when doing tattoos on women's bare bodies. I certainly can't! Hahaha.

This Hot Ink game is all about tattoos. See that guy in the game there? He's playing with the hot ink, probably waiting for a beautiful lady to come by and ask him to do a tattoo on her body. Hmm, must be a very nice thrilling job being a tattooist, don't you think so guys? Hehehe. Hmm, never mind. This game plays with 5 reels and 4 rows, with 1024 ways to win, and it's something that I don't really like. Not the 1024 winning ways, but the clustering of all those icons on the screen. Looks very crowded to me, and I don't like crowds either. The game also offers a 'Respin' feature for any individual reel to complete a missed winning combination. If you've played games like Wild Orient and Dragon Dance, then that 'respin' feature is the same for Hot Ink too. I don't really like that feature, it eats credits much more hungrily that it could give out wins, so to me, it's all a blardy waste of money.

'Hot Ink' is the Wild symbol, 5 of which pays 1000x the line bet, and does nothing else but only to substitute for other symbols, except for the Scatter symbol. It doesn't double any wins, it doesn't expand, nor does it come stacked. There are 2 types of Scatter symbols in the game. The Bird symbols pays 100x the total bet for 5 of them, getting 3 or more of these Bird Scatters award 20 free spins with all wins doubled, and more free spins can be retriggered too. The Tattoo Bonus symbols also pays 100x the total bet for 5 of them, getting 3 or more of these Tattoo Scatters award the 'Tattoo Bonus' feature game, whereby you click on each of the three albums to win cash prizes. Getting 3 matching symbols award 10 free spins with all wins doubled. Nah, I've never won this 10 free spins so far, only the regular 20 free spins, so I don't even know if those 10 free spins would play and pay as the regular 20 free spins would. The symbols in this game pays from 750x the line bet to 50x the line bet for 5 of each kind.

Without going into too much details, those 20 free spins can pay big but can pay very small too. I've had wins ranging from just 6x up to 67x my bet amount. The Tattoo Bonus games are more stable, with wins from 20x up to 36x my bet amount. The wins can be higher of course, but I haven't got any such huge wins so far, so I cannot say for certain how high the wins could go. Nonetheless, this Hot Ink is enjoyable to play and do give out decent payouts.

Hot Ink has been around for quite a while now and is probably one of the earliest examples of a 1024 ways to win slot machine from Microgaming. This games U.S.P. is the ability to spin each of the five reels independently, so for example if you have a four of a kind on the first four reels you can elect to spin only the final reel in the hope of improving to a five of a kind instead. Of course, this flexibility comes at a price and each reel is labelled with an individual price to respin at the end of every spin.

You can even use this feature when you have two scatters on the screen and would like another shot at hitting a third to trigger the bonus round. It's a fantastic innovation and it can be extremely addictive and tempting to simply spin each of the reels one at a time rather than firing a whole new spin, but when things don't go your way you can end up spending a great deal of your bankroll on fruitless respins.

This feature has attracted many advantage players over the years, not least because the high price of respinning a single reel when you already have a decent win on the screen makes for a very interesting way to complete a bonus wagering requirement - you know that the spin is going to pay you out something, so that high cost of respinning the final reel may result in a small loss, or a big win - perfect when you need to wager a lot of money with the minimum amount of risk. For this reason Hot Ink and its clones have been banned when a bonus is in play at many casinos, but where it is still available it's definitely worth considering provided you are sure the site where you are playing will not deem your play "irregular" and confiscate your winnings.

The respin feature makes this game a "must try" slot in my opinion and one that I think most players will keep coming back to from time to time. As far as I can tell the jackpot is quite low by Microgaming standards at around 1000x stake, but don't let that put you off!


The base game payouts are very low, in fact only the five of a kind combinations will return any more than your stake in most situations. Wins are doubled during the free spins but without any stacked wilds it's difficult to win on a large number of paylines simultaneously on any single spin.

Hot Ink is an online video slot that offers real entertainment especially if you are a tattoo enthusiast. So even if you are against this old tradition you still must try this game because it has a lot to offer. This game has 1024 ways to win so it means that you only need adjacent symbols anywhere on the reels to land a win. This game has two main features the bonus round and the free spins. It is so funny that while I played this slot I have not managed to trigger the free spins I only got the bonus round on numerous occasions. In the bonus round you can win a lot.

During the Tattoo bonus you need to click on an album and you get 10 free spins if all the tattoos match. There are 3 books with tattoos and if you find the same tattoo in each book than you will get the free spins. That did not happen either. But I cannot complain about the other tattoos that I got.

There were arm, back and leg. I chose the legs first and I got a tribal tattoo which was worth 4500 coins. For the back I got a floral tattoo which was worth 5000 coins, for the arm I got western tattoo which was worth 2500. In total I got 260 euros. In the next bonus I got some different tattoos that paid much less so I end up with only 34 euros.

I have to say that I also got some decent wins during the base game too. I managed to land some 5 of a kind symbols. The most that I have got was 50 x my bet size. The game offers the re spin feature, but I have learned my lesson when it comes to this feature so I did not even touched it, I even forgot that it was there. This is one heck of a game and it is worth trying it.
