There are many things to love about video slots; the exciting features, the colourful graphics and animations, and let’s not forget the great prizes, but it really all comes together for me when a game has the features that I enjoy combined with a theme that seems tailor-made to my interests. A few years back I got my first tattoo, and since then I’ve become a little hooked, adding a couple of more pieces to my collection, so you can imagine my excitement when I discovered the Hot Ink video slots game on Royal Vegas. That excitement turned to unbridled joy once I got a look at the tattoo themed graphics and animation, not to mention the staggering 1024 different possible ways to win. You may wonder how this is possible in a 5 reel slot, but it is, thanks to a revolutionary new feature that will absolutely blow your mind. Hot Ink is the first slots game that I have seen that features the re-spin option, which allows you to spin any of the 5 reels, at a price of course. Just think back to how many times you’ve played slots and have had 4 of the 5 symbols necessary for the win; no need to curse your bad luck anymore, just simply hit the re-spin and try again. Hot Ink comes loaded with special features which include wild symbols, scatter, multipliers, a bonus round where you try to match leg arm and back tattoos on a hot, animated lady, and the special Yin-Yang symbols which trigger the 20 free spins round, with each win being doubled during the freebies. With a 10,000 coin jackpot and a smoking rock ‘n’ roll soundtrack, Royal Vegas has hooked another winner with the addition of the Hot Ink video slots. They may even have inspired me to get one of those cool symbols tattooed on myself.
