Hold the Safe


Play Hold the Safe™ Slot

You’ll need steady nerves and even steadier fingers as you try to crack the safe in the Hold the Safe online slot. Taking place in the middle of a heist you’ll be spinning reels full of the affluent spoils kept not so safe inside the vault as you try to tease the winnings out. With the usual features like scatters and free spins, as well as the chance of big wins with the Hold the Safe feature this is a game where you won’t want to blow the bloody doors off as you try to get the riches within.

Playing the Hold the Safe online game is simple. Play takes place on a traditional five-by-three reel set up with 25 paylines. You have control over your stakes and can set them between 1p and 50p per line to make a total stake of 25p to £12.50 per spin. And, as usual for online slots, there’s an autoplay feature for 10, 20, 50 or 100 spins so you can set it running, sit back and wait for your ill-gotten gains from your heist.

The design brief for this game was clearly ‘conspicuous wealth’. Played against a backdrop of imperial purple the game’s elements are largely gold with both the frame and the lettering done in a blocky style that evokes bullion. The traditional card symbols are there, from 9 to A, made from shiny gold and inlaid with precious stones. The other symbols that spin past in a dazzling display of wealth are:

  • an amethyst and diamond ring
  • a bag of diamonds
  • a designer watch
  • a case full of cash
  • a stack of gold bullion
  • a huge diamond

The gameplay is enhanced by the background music. A funky jazz soundtrack that gives the game a 60s feel that leaves you imagining you are a rat pack thief in the mould of the original Ocean’s Eleven or The Thomas Crown Affair. The overall feel in the Hold the Safe slot is a game that is well put together so the individual elements enhance each other and the theme to create a great play experience.

It’s not just spinning the reels and hoping to line up symbols. There are a number of additional features in Hold the Safe. The wild symbol is, simply, the word ‘WILD’ made from gold bullion. This symbol only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 but can replace any symbol except the diamond and safe scatters. Wilds work with every winning combination, so landing a single wild can unlock multiples wins.

While diamonds might be forever, it isn’t the highest paying symbol, landing five of these will only earn you 50x your stake. However, diamonds are everyone’s best friend in the Hold the Safe online slot. Landing three or more will unlock the free spins feature. When this is unlocked you will get six free spins, and you can re-trigger free spins up to fifty times so there is the potential to play for a long time, and increase the value of your heist, without having to pay any more to play. There are no limits on the free spins either, so you can get lucrative wilds and unlock the Hold the Safe feature here too.

The Hold the Safe feature is the most exciting in the game. During ordinary play the safe symbol can appear on reels 2, 3 and 4, sometimes appearing in a stack of two. When you land three of these on a single spin you unlock the Hold the Safe feature. It’s appropriately named because it literally holds the safes.

The reels transform and instead of having five independent reels there are now fifteen, however, any safe symbols are locked in place. The game then gives you three free spins to land more safes. If you land one, the free spins are reset back to three and you keep going. The feature only ends when you run out of free spins or all fifteen mini-reels are safes. Once over, each safe is cracked open for you to reveal its bonus prize of up to 500x your stake. You might not unlock the Hold the Safe feature often, but when you do it can be incredibly lucrative.

You might think that robbery is a risky business, but with an RTP of 96.4% it isn’t as risky as you might expect. The game is quite volatile though, so you need to make sure you haven’t triggered any alarms and are about to be disturbed by security because you may need to play for a while to pick up some wins. The prizes themselves are moderately generous. The card symbols up to the K pay between 5x and 50x your stake depending whether you land between 3 and 5 of them on a spin. The other symbols become much more generous and will earn you:

  • Diamond — 2x, 10x, 50x your stake
  • Ace — 5x, 20x, 75x your stake
  • Ring — 5x, 25x, 150x your stake
  • Bag of diamonds — 5x, 25x, 150x your stake
  • Designer watch — 5x, 30x, 150x your stake
  • Case of cash — 5x, 30x, 150x your stake
  • Gold bullion — 2x (for two), 10x, 50x, 200x your stake

But it’s in the Hold the Safe bonus feature that you can really rack up the prizes. It might be difficult to land, but once you are in the game and you add more and more safes to the reels the bonus prizes will soon add up to a bumper heist.

With exquisite graphics worthy of the jewellery it portrays, accompanied by a funky soundtrack the Hold the Safe online game is an engrossing slot. It’s also one of the more generous games you can find, with a high RTP, although the game’s volatility may mean it takes a while before you crack the safe. But with wilds, free spins and the bonus game to boost the booty from your heist the Hold the Safe online game gives you every chance to score a big payday to carry back to your getaway car.
