When you play any slot machine that comes with this feature, you will notice the three Hold buttons under the reels. When the fruit machine hold feature becomes available, you will see these buttons starting to flash. You can then choose which of the reels to hold in place, based on your judgement or on any strategy you might have devised. 

The reels that you didn’t hold will start spinning, while the one you chose to hold will say in place. Your main goal here should be landing symbols that would be needed to form a winning combo. Naturally, these will have to match the ones on the reel that’s stuck in place.

You won’t be able to hold the reels indefinitely, as the number of holds is limited. Some developers might even have them expire after a certain time so you won’t be able to hoard them.

Hold and Respin




The only certain way to make sure you win at a slot machine hold session is to keep playing and find out how the game itself works. That being said, there is a common time in all slots when you can win by holding the reels. 

We’d say you should hold the reels when you absolutely know you’re going to get a win. Luckily, most of the fruit machines with hold feature come with only one payline. This means there is only one place to form winning combos. 

So if you’ve got a couple of holds to spare, it would be best to hold two reels when they have the same symbols on them. This way, you will increase your chances of landing a lucky symbol on the third.




Obviously, if the slot itself doesn’t come with a bonus round, you won’t be able to benefit from it. But if it does, you might be able to trigger it using the Hold Feature. So, let’s say for example, that the slot machine you’re playing has a Free Spins round. And let’s say that it needs 3 Scatters to start. Once you get two Scatters, you can go ahead and hold these reels until you get a third.
