Pragmatic Play – Dragon Hot Hold and Spin – Free Slot Game

Reel Kingdom offers both Asian slots and the Hold & Win feature. Dragon Hot: Hold and Spin is a typical release from them in this regard, but there’s a bit more under the hood here than in many similar games. The wild features of firecrackers and dragons are triggered at random times and are a godsend to break up the mostly dry base game.

Players familiar with the concept of “polyonymous” strip reactions will know what to expect. The Hold & Spin feature is all about collecting sticky money symbols. This extends your winning streak by resetting the response list for each new money symbol you land. However, the big twist in this game are the repeat wins that you can also get from the Big Money Wheel, which could be triggered at the end.

Dragon Hot: Hold and Spin Features

Wilds mesh with all regular payout symbols to form winning combinations, but they also pay 1,000 times your bet for 5 on a payline . During the game, however, you don’t organically land in the wilds. They only occur when dragons snake across the reels or the row of fireworks above the reels goes off. This rewards wilds that are randomly distributed across the grid, and usually results in a pretty decent payout.

As the title of the game more than implies, the headlining feature is the Hold & Spin bonus round . You will land silver, gold and diamond coins in the base game, which come with random cash values. You need at least 5 in the same base game to trigger the Hold & Respin feature.

All triggering money symbols become sticky and only blanks or money symbols land during the feature. You start with 4 respin lives/hearts , and all money symbols that land also become sticky. Each money symbol you land also resets the respin count back to 4. The Strip Reactions feature will continue until you either fill the screen with money symbols or until you run out of respins.

All money symbol values are combined and paid when the feature ends, and a big money wheel is triggered if you manage to fill the screen. The wheel comes with multiplier prizes ranging from 10x to 5,000x your bet, and you get 1 extra spin per cash prize won. The feature only ends when you hit an empty segment on the wheel.

The 200 Spins Dragon Hot: Hold and Spin Experience

Nothing overly exciting happened in the base game, but we’ve allotted about a minute to give you an idea. We trigger the Hold & Win feature at 1:10 in the 3-minute highlight video, and you can check it all out by clicking the play button below.


A somewhat generic – albeit well done – Asian theme combined with the epidemic Hold & Win feature. What can we say? It can only be better than it looks, to put it that way, and we have to admit that Reel Kingdom surprised us a bit with Dragon Hot: Hold and Spin. A solid mathematical model, decent top symbol values and the 2 random wild features are more than capable of keeping you afloat in a sea of mostly dead base game spins.

The Hold & Spin feature is better than many other alternatives, not least because reaching the Big Money Wheel isn’t as difficult as you might think. Once this happens, you can repeat 20,000 times your bet. This can be quite a thrill if things go your way. Of course, there’s nothing revolutionary here, but the game is better than it seems at first glance.
