Little Gem – Hold & Spin Overview
Classic slot games have always been popular and are still popular. But more in land-based casinos than online casinos. But now and then providers will still release one of those, because there is a group of players that really enjoys these. When I talk about classic slot games I usually mean games with only 3 reels and 1, 3 or sometimes 5 lines. And the games feel like mechanical reels.
Now Pragmatic Play has released Little Gem – Hold & Spin, which is one of those classic games. But where they added a more modern bonus feature.
Little Gem uses 3 reels which are each 3 symbols high and comes with 5 lines.
The game features all sorts of gems and X symbols. All of which appear stacked on all reels and all will pay for any 3-of-a-kind.
You will also find wild symbols on all reels. And wild symbols always expand to cover the entire reel.
Lastly there are coin symbols that appear stacked on reel 2 only during the base game. And these will be needed to trigger the Hold & Respin bonus.
Little Gem comes with a maximum payout of 2.460 times your bet.
Little Gem – Hold & Spin Features
Hold & Spin Bonus
If you get 3 coin symbols on the middle reel this bonus is triggered.
The 3 coins on the middle reel are held and will have a value between 1 and 20 times bte. reels 1 and 3 will now only show coin symbols.
You will receive 4 respins.
Each time a new coin symbol appears on reels 1 and or 3, all values of all symbols are collected and awarded. The respins are reset to 4 and only the middle reel symbols wll stay on the reels.
A special diamond symbol can also appear on reels 1 and 3. This symbol will reward a value of between 100 and 500 times bet.
Respins will continue until you run out of spins.
These types of games are an acquired taste. A lot of players prefer games with more lines, more bonuses and features. But there are also players that like these more simplistic games.
And I can understand why. It’s more straight forward.
I think the base game on Little Gem is a bit boring and it can also take some spins to trigger the Hold & Respin bonus. But I think that game is worth the wait. Most of these respin bonuses will keep the new symbols, so the screen will fill up. This one doesn’t, so you can get new symbols on those spots each respin. Meaning this bonus can keep going on for a lot of respins.
I know it’s still now for everyone and if you don’t like these 3 reel slots, just skip it. But if you do enjoy these games, I would give it a try.
