Grizzly Strike: Hold and Win is a 5×3 reel slot with 20-paylines and a maximum win of up to x5,100 the player’s stake. 




88.3, 94.44 and 96.13 per cent 


Low value symbols come in the form of the high end of a deck of cards, from nine through to Ace. If the right amount of winning combinations land on a single spin, these symbols can offer between x0.3 and x5 the player’s stake.

Next up, bison, deer and mountain lions depict the high value symbols, offering between x0.2 and x10 the player’s preferred bet.

Scatter text symbols are available, triggering five, 10 or 15 free spins if three, four or five scatters land on the same spin respectively. 

Golden nugget bonus symbols can appear, displaying cash values. Landing six or more nuggets will trigger the hold and win feature.

Special orange nuggets can also appear. Landing three, four or five special nuggets can award a payout of x50, x250 or x1,000 respectively. 

Finally, grizzly bear wilds can drop into play, substituting for all low and high value symbols, but not for any bonus symbols. 


If two or more bear wilds appear on the same winning payline, one grizzly bear will expand and roar to scare the other bear wilds to another cell on the reel set, leaving behind a trail of more wilds.

If this scared bear wild passes by any nugget symbols, it will collect their values, while passing by another wild will cause that wild to gain a multiplier of x2. 

With the hold and win feature, players are taken to an empty reel set where only nuggets and specials nuggets can appear on the reels.

Players are given three spins to land as many nuggets on the reels as possible, with every nugget that drops in resetting the number of spins to three. 

Landing a certain amount of special orange nuggets can award a x50, x250 or x1,000 payout while filling the reels with 15 nuggets will cause the bonus game payout to be multiplied by 2.

Furthermore, free spins can be triggered during the free spins feature by landing three, four or five scatters on the same free turn.
