Ultra Hold and Spin slot review pragmatic play

Ultra Hold & Spin slot – Gameplay and Features

Ultra Hold & Spin is a 3-reel, 3-row video slot with 5 paylines.

The high-paying symbols are the 7’s, followed by BAR symbols, Watermelons, Strawberries and Yellow Star symbols. Three 7’s on a payline is good for 50x the bet. A screen of 7’s yields 250x.

The low-paying symbols are the usual Plums, Oranges, Cherries and Black Cross symbols.

You also have WILD symbols. What’s so appealing is that these unfold (expand) over an entire reel. Three wilds on a payline are also good for a 50x win.

If you land Wilds on all 3 reels, you’ll indeed get a full-screen of Wilds. In other words, a 250x win!

The Money Symbols

This Reel Kingdom slot is way more exciting than the other two slots, thanks to the Money Symbols (Gold and Silver ones). These are good for 1x to 20x and only appear on the middle reel. In short, you can win up to 60x.

The Hold and Respin Feature

But more importantly, if you land the three Money symbols, you activate the Hold and Respin Feature. It looks a bit like the Money Respin feature you see with slots as Wolf Gold or Aztec Gems Deluxe.

You’ll get four free respins, and in each of these, the three Money Symbols on the middle reel remain sticky. So, you have room for another six Money Symbols (on the reels 1 and 3). After each respin, the symbols of reels 1 and 3 disappear again.

The respins continue until you fail to get any Money Symbols on reels 1 or 3 for four consecutive times. But if you land one, the counter resets, and you still get another four respins.

In short, the Hold and Respin feature can be very lucrative, as (in theory) you can enjoy the respins for a very long time. And ALL Money Symbols of ALL respins are added together, INCLUDING the 3 Money Symbols on the middle reel, which are sticky.

But there is even more.

There are also Diamond Symbols, which yield between 100x and 500x. These lovey Diamonds can appear during the free respins on reels 1 or 3. Hurray!

Payout percentage (RTP)

The payout percentage of Ultra Hold & Spin is an excellent 96.7%.

Ultra Hold & Spin slot – a medium to high variance (volatility)

Pragmatic Play indicates that the variance of Ultra Hold & Spin is “medium to high” (4 out of 5).

I expect that most top wins are around 500x the stakes, with very occasionally a more massive one of 1,000x.

Wins topping 1,000x the bet are unlikely unless you have no problem to spin one million times. Oddly enough, that doesn’t even take that long with this fast-paced beast!

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Plays so incredibly fast and is straightforward to play.
  • It has more to offer than the two other Reel Kingdom slots.
  • Less is more!
  • Great RTP.

Cons

  • It is and remains a fruit slot.

So, who’ll like the slot? And who won’t?

This retro-style Pragmatic Play slot won’t appeal if you dislike fruit slots. But if you have a couple of minutes and some cash to spare, why not? You might walk away a winner.
