Ultra Hold and Spin (Pragmatic Play)

Ultra Hold and Spin (Pragmatic Play)Ultra Hold and Spin is the latest from Pragmatic Play. This slot uses a somehow unusual setup, which proves that modern features can work well alongside their classic counterparts.

I took some time out of my busy schedule to try out this new release by Pragmatic Play, and here is my review:

Game Set-Up

Ultra-Hold and Spin is a 3-reel slot machine. However, to spice things up, the developer has incorporated the standard 5 lines which are common with modern slots.

The slot has some cools features, and these include a bonus game, Money Symbols, as well as a wild.

Betting and Prizes

For its wagering prize, Pragmatic Play allows as little as $0.05 to as much as $250 per spin, which makes it quite attractive to high rollers.

For its highest payout, Hold and Spin delivers an average of 500x the stake.  When you use the highest possible payout, this translates to about $125,000 from a single spin.

The slot is medium in volatility, which means a significant risk is involved. For its RTP, Pragmatic Play has announced 96.70%, which makes it one of the highest in the industry.

Ultra Hold and Spin Slot Features

I was quite impressed with the developer’s idea on the features for this game. One such feature is the Fiery Wild.

I was able to use this feature to substitute most of the regular symbols, but the bonus ones. Additionally, it’s an expanding wild capable of taking over an entire reel. This way, you can be able to use it to contribute to a new win.

Then there are the Money symbols, and you will only get his feature on the 3rd reel. When they appear, these symbols will reward you with up to 20x the stake. However, to benefit from them, you must land at least 3 of these symbols on the middle reel.

The moment this feature becomes active, any Money symbols triggered will remain locked in their positions, as other symbols disappear.

This will be followed by up to 4 respins follow, and if you are lucky, they will help you to get extra Money symbols, potential to offer some prizes.

My favourite symbol on this slot is the Diamond, although it appears only on the 1st and 3rd reels, it has an advantage in that it will deliver wins of up to 500x the stake.

Theme & Design

Ultra-Hold and Spin don’t have a lot going on. The slot has a classic theme, and its design and layout are not any better.

I would have expected better quality graphics coming from a top provider like Pragmatic Play. The symbols present include Lucky 7s, Gold Stars, Wild logos on fire, Bar logos, Crown Coins (both silver and gold), Plums, Strawberries, Cherries, black X, and Oranges.


Ultra -and Spin is more suitable for new players with little experience in the industry. Although the slot touches on both classic and modern setups, it does not offer a lot of action, which means players looking for an intense activity will get bored pretty fast.
