Ultra Hold and Spin Slot Review
Pragmatic Play’s Ultra Hold and Spin endeavours to merge the experience of classic casino slots with modern features. It starts all of this through a presentation that takes us back to the simple look of old, land-based slot machines. Unfortunately, the assets being used here are of really low quality and make the slot look incredibly dated and unappealing. It’s not quite the theme that’s issue here but rather its execution. Read on below as we take a look at the features that make up Ultra Hold and Spin.

Ultra Hold and Spin Bonus Features
Pragmatic Play aims to present a classic slot with some modern features under the hood. Below, we’ll explore the features themselves to determine just how well this fusion really is.
Wild Symbols can fall on any of your 3 reels, substituting themselves for any symbol that will grant you a winning combo with the exception of Money symbols. Should you manage to land a winning combo thanks to a Wild symbol, said Wild will expand to cover the entire reel, making way for new combination opportunities.
The lack of a Free Spins mode means that the Scatter Symbols are also missing here. Although there is a similar mechanic found within the Money Symbols.
You won’t find any Free Spins here, but the Ultra Hold and Spin mechanic that gives the slot its name, comes into play instead. You’ll need a total of 3 Money symbols to trigger the respins feature which will have said symbols stuck to your reels while 4 Re-Spins add to your winning amount. Additional Money symbols will reset your Re-Spin counter and add further multipliers to your winning combinations. The Diamond symbol also comes into play here and holds the largest win possible, with a 500x multiplier.
Money symbols show up on the 2nd reel and can have a random value between 1x to 20x. You’ll need 3 of these symbols to go into the Re-Spins mode.
Ultra Hold and Spin Jackpot
Sticking to the basics, Ultra Hold and Spin omits a Jackpot feature from its repertoire.
