Players venture into the wild in Swintt’s majestic title, Mystic Bear XtraHold.
Mystic Bear XtraHold is a 5×4, 25-payline video slot that incorporates a maximum win potential of up to x10,000 the bet.
Symbols in the game include four classic A-J royals offering multiplier values worth up to x2 the bet for combinations of five-of-a-kind. These are topped by squirrels, eagles, wolves and bears, worth x8 to x20 the bet for five-of-a-kind.
Moving onto special symbols, the paw print acts as both a wild and scatter symbol, substituting for all other icons when forming part of a winning payline, and activating the free spoons bonus when landing on the reels.
The title comes with a free spins bonus, an XtraHold respin feature and a buy the bonus option.
In the game, landing three, four or five paw print symbols during the base game will trigger five, eight or ten free spins respectively. This feature takes place on an upgraded set of reels where the second, third and fourth columns will spin together to form giant mega symbols.
With these mega symbols filling the centre of the game board, players will only need to land matching icons on reels one and five to trigger the slot’s maximum five-of-a-kind wins. Moreover, should a full moon mega symbol – along with its enhanced mega prize amount – appear on the central reels, players will also trigger the XtraHold respin feature on top of their current free spins.
When the XtraHold respin feature is activated, all triggering full moon symbols and their stated cash prizes will remain locked on the reels as a series of three complimentary respins begins.
As the XtraHold feature takes place, the respin counter will drop by one after each new round is completed. However, should players manage to land a further full moon, both the symbol and its prize amount will again stick to the reels as the re-spins are reset. This process will continue until no new re-spins are triggered or until full moons fill the reels, at which point a bonus will be paid out.
Finally, incorporating a buy feature option, players can manually trigger either of the slot’s bonus rounds for an additional wager, giving them instant access to free spins and XtraHold respins.
WHAT THEY SAY
David Mann, Chief Commercial Officer at Swintt, remarked: “Swintt has always been known for its innovative and exciting bonus features, so having already introduced players to popular additions such as XtraLock and XtraWild, we’re delighted to debut our new XtraHold system in Mystic Bear.”
“This ground-breaking game mechanic enables players to fill the reels with full moon symbols as they unlock increasingly valuable instant cash prizes. With the Mystic Bear XtraHold bonus awaiting any player who’s lucky enough to completely fill the game board, it’s a hugely rewarding feature that will help the new slot become an instant classic when it debuts at our partner casinos later this month.”
