The Ultra Hold and Spin slot game can be found at casinos offering Pragmatic Play software. Pragmatic Play should now be considered an established software provider, with a fairly prolific output. As a standard Pragmatic Play do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within their game help file. For a provider that are not currently licensed within the UK market and therefore are under no obligation to publish these figures this is a significantly progressive move. The House Edge for Ultra Hold and Spin is 3.3%.
Ultra Hold and Spin has 3 reels and each reel has 3 symbol spaces in it. There are 5 paylines in total, playing from left to right.
Theme – This is essentially a traditional slot machine that you might find in a pub or a bar, and as such there is no discernible theme.
Wild – The Wild will substitute for all paying symbols.
Bonus – The Gold and Silver Coins are the slot’s bonus symbols. They only appear on the middle reel and you need to land 3 of them to trigger the feature.
Hold and Respin Bonus – If you trigger the Hold and Respin Bonus by filling the middle reels with gold and/or Silver Coins then you will trigger the Hold and Respin Bonus. You are given 4 spins, during which the triggering symbols will remain in place. The only symbols that can land are Gold and Silver coins and if they do land your spins will reset to 4. The feature ends once you have played through your 4 spins without landing a Gold or Silver Coin. Every time a new Gold or Silver coin lands you will be awarded the total of all those coins added together and every times one lands it will remain stuck in place for the remainder of the feature.
Diamond Money – This is a special symbol that can only appear on reels 1 and 3. If it lands it can pay out between 100 and 500 times the bet.
In many ways this is a fantastic slot. You have a low house edge and an excellent and exciting bonus feature. However, there are far better looking slots out there and there are far more inventive slots too. You get Wilds as well and house edge is amazing but it’s just not enough to make this a great slot.
