Those fruity symbols are back again in this entertaining slot game from Novomatic. They must be wondering what’s going on though as there appear to be four reels rather than the three or five they are used to. Novomatic have a few of these four reel games and do love a bit of a retro feel now and then in their many designs. Hold It Casino can certainly provide its players with the chance to win some big prizes with a jackpot of 400,000 credits to get your mouth watering.
Most games these days have five reels, retro ones used to have just the three not this game though. If it was a sitcom it’d be ‘The Inbetweeners’ as it only has the four reels. Those contain a total of ten pay-lines though, so there are plenty of chances for you to be getting some good wins in this game. Those ten pay-lines are a fixed amount so you have no option but to play them on each spin of the reels. You do have to make a decision about how much your stake is going to be. Make a sensible decision and stake money you can safely afford to lose. The minimum cost of playing this game is 0.10 and the maximum 500.
If you’ve had a tough day at work and need cheering up, then a look at this game will help you along the way. It’s bright and cheerful with its yellow and orange striped background and the all-important Hold It signs above each of the four reels. More about the key part they play in this game soon. The symbols are of a fruity nature with the usual suspects of grapes, strawberries, plums, oranges, cherries, and watermelons. Just to make the game a little bit different we have four leaf clovers though there’s little else Irish in this slot. Add on some golden bells and it’s a familiar sight.
It’s the ‘Hold It’ logo which is the most important symbol in this game as it has a fair few tasks to perform. Firstly, it’s the wild symbol in this game so it can substitute for other symbols in order to hopefully get you some good wins. No multiplier attached to any wins it creates which is a bit of a shame.
This busy symbol also has the ability to activate the game’s hold feature. I used to love that feature in days gone by when playing in the pubs, clubs etc. Will holding a reel produce that big win? The decision is taken out of your own hands in this game because if the Hold It logo appears on any reel, it holds that reel in position for the next spin. It’ll only do that if there hasn’t been a win on that spin.
Make sure you do a bit of research before starting to pump some of your hard-earned cash into this slot. That’s easily done by having some free games just to see how all the bonus features play out and it won’t cost you anything at all. Also make sure you have a good look through the paytable. This will allow you to find out how much all those winning combinations pay out. For example, three of the Hold It logo pays you a 40x multiplier. The paytable also gives you details about the bonus games which is handy. For full details of how to play this slot, just click one the game rules button situated underneath the reels next to the paytable button.
When you get a win during the base game, there’s the chance to double it. Yes, this is one of those games that contains a gamble feature. Again, it’s the task of correctly guessing the colour of the next card to double your win. A wrong choice results in you losing your win so be careful here and only use it to gamble some low paying wins.
After having some fun playing this slot game, why not try out another that has similar gameplay? You could have a go at another Novomatic slot, ‘Fruit Fest’ which is also a four-reel game and also has ten pay-lines to try and get some wins on. If you enjoy free spins and a gamble feature, you can play the Novomatic slot ‘Cupid’s Arrow though that has 25 pay-lines.
Another entertaining slot from Novomatic with some interesting game-play. The hold it feature is one that has been popular for many a year, though it is better when the player has the choice. It can still bring about some decent wins though. It’s a shame there is no free spins round but there is the gamble feature. It’s a game that can be used as a gentle introduction to those not too experienced at playing slots.
