Recently, Pragmatic Play forged a partnership with Super 7 in Mendoza, Argentina. Under the terms of a new content deal, the iGaming provider agreed to power the operator with games.

But what can the players of Big Bass Hold & Spinner Megaways expect? The game offers the popular tumbling mechanic that removes winning symbols from the reel, allowing new symbols to fall in their place, creating a potential for subsequent wins. This mechanic can be boosted further by the game’s Mystery symbols, granting a chance for even bigger payouts.

To access the free spins round, players need to land three or more Scatter symbols. The free spins game offers an extra feature that grants a chance for a multiplier of 2x, 3x and 10x to be awarded along with additional spins.

The highlight of the new game is the Hold & Spinner feature. Online players can access the feature by landing three or more Coin Money symbols. “These Coins lock to the grid, awarding three respins and adding the value of each subsequent Coin to the total win,” explains Pragmatic Play.
