The Big Bass Hold & Spinner slot from Reel Kingdom is a 5×3 slot machine with a top win of 10,000x your bet, a high RTP of 96.07%
A sequel to the well-known Big Bass series of slots, the Big Bass Hold & Spinner mobile slot keeps its 10 paylines and gives you two bonus features instead of one. But can it compare to the original?
The slot theme is much the same – you have the fisherman as the wild symbol and the lure as the highest paying symbols, followed by the fishing pole, dragonfly, fishing box, the fish symbols, and then Ace to 10.
The difference here is that you have three money symbols; the fish, the coin and the diamond. The first is only useful during the free spins as it’s collected by the wild. The other two you collect with 4 respins in the Hold and Spinner bonus.
The free spin bonus is exactly the same as that of the Bigger Bass Bonanza slot 3 or more scatters trigger at least 10 free spins.
During the free spins, the wild symbol is added to all reels and will collect all the fish symbols on the screen that hold values of 2x to 10,000x your bet. Collect 4 wild symbols, and you get a 2x multiplier and +10 spins. Retrigger up to 3 times, and you can catch a 10x multiplier.
So why should you play the Big Bass Hold & Spinner slot game instead of the Reel Kingdom slots already available to play?
Because it hides a second bonus, hit 3 coins or diamond symbols, and you trigger 4 respins with those coins and diamond holding values of 1x to 2,000x your bet.
Each time you get a new money symbol, you get a payout of that symbol and the original three. So if one of those original 3 had a value of 100x your bet, you could win that each time you capture another coin.
The game can go on indefinitely; it could get you wins of 10,000x for your bet, but for the most part, it won’t. In fact, to make the most of this game, you need to pay 0.5% extra on your bet to increase your odds of catching scatters.
Not only does this tells us that the free spins are the main money maker, but it simply makes it want to play on the Bigger Bass Splash slot, which holds more interesting features in the free spins.
It has all the elements you’ll love, plus an extra bonus that is familiar, if not revolutionary.
We suspect it won’t be at the top of our list of recommendations, but with a high RTP and a high max bet of 375, it will appeal to fans of high-variance slots who love instant cash wins.

Wild: The fisherman is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols on the reels. Ir appears on all reels during the free spins round and collects all money symbols.
Fish Money Money Symbols: These are the fish symbols. In the base game, they hold a paytable value when you get 3 or more on any payline. However, they also have an instant win value that varies from 2x to 10,000x your total bet.
Hold & Spinner: Whenever you get 3 Money or Diamond coin symbols (with a value of 1x to 2,000x your bet), you'll get to play the Hold & Spin bonus. You then have 4 lives to get as many coin symbols on the reels as possible.
You collect the value of your 3 coins first. Then, if another coin or diamond lands on the reels, you collect all values, including those on your three original coins. Because only the 3 coins are sticky, there is space for multiple money symbols on each spin.
You end the bonus if you go 4 spins without hitting any new coins. Each time you get a new money symbol, you get 4 new lives.
Scatters and Free Spins: Hit 3, 4, or 5 scatters, and you'll start the free spins with 10, 15 or 20 free spins. During the bonus, the wild symbol now shows up on all reels and simultaneously collects the values of all the fish money symbols on the screen.
Every 4th wild symbol collected retriggers the feature. You get a further 10 spins, and the multiplier for money symbol collection increases to 2x for the first retrigger, then 3x and finally 10x for a final third retrigger.
If two wild symbols appear on the screen, random fish money symbols can appear in random positions.
Ante-Bet: For 0.5% extra on top of your bet, you increase your chance of catching scatter symbols on the reels. This increases the RTP of the game to 96.09%.
Buy Free Spins: For 100x your bet, you can buy either the free spins or the Hold and Spinner bonus. The RTP of the bonus game doesn't change.
Is this anywhere as good as the other Big Bass Bonanza slots? No.
But the good news is that if you love this kind of gameplay, it's still better than many of the new slot game releases we see daily.
The Big Bass Hold & Spinner slot is still better than other fishing or fruit machines, mostly because it has that great free spin round filled with instant cash symbols.
The 10,000x your bet max win is inspiring enough to play, and the extra bonus is fun enough, even if you definitely shouldn't use this as a buy bonus video slot.
