Jelly Reels Hold the Jackpot Features

Jelly Reels Hold the Jackpot, as the name suggests is all about the Hold the Jackpot bonus feature, which sees players gifted 3 respins (in which only special multiplier and jackpot symbols appear) upon landing at least 6 golden coin bonus symbols on the reels during base gameplay.

In addition to the Hold the Jackpot bonus Mega Symbols can land on the reels at any time which can be 2x2 or 3x3 in size. 

Hold the Jackpot bonus

When players land at least 6 golden coin bonus symbols on the game reels then they'll trigger the Hold the Jackpot bonus and be taken to a special split game screen in which they get 3 resettable respins during which only special symbols land. 

The Hold the Jackpot bonus is played on 40 reels, and only jackpot coins, silver coins, and mystery symbols appear on the big reels at the top half of the grid. Golden coins and snake symbols can land on the smaller bottom reels.

Golden coin symbols

During the Hold the Jackpot bonus golden coins will land on the bottom half of the screen, these coins will have values ranging between 1x and 5x the player's bet.

Snake symbol

Snake symbols land on the bottom half of the screen and move towards the golden coin symbol of the highest value and adds Golden Coins with a 1x multiplier to the reels. If the Snake symbol moves through a reel position already occupied by a Golden Coin symbol, it doubles its value.

Jackpot coin symbols

Jackpot coins may randomly appear during the Hold the Jackpot bonus round, awarding players with the corresponding fixed jackpot that's based on the player's current stake. 

Silver coin symbols

If a silver coin symbol lands on the top half of the screen then it will accumulate all the values of the golden coins and silver coins below, it will then multiply them randomly by 1x and 5x. 

Mystery symbols

Mystery symbols land on the top of the screen, they can transform into any other Bonus symbol. Mystery symbols open one by one at the end of the Bonus Game.

Jelly Reels Review

Jelly Reels is an 8-reel slot developed by Wazdan that sees players register wins when matching combinations of 3, 5, 6, 7 or 8 identical symbols land from left to right. This tasty slot offers deliciously sweet wins worth up to 2,500x the player's stake thanks to having a whopping 16,777,216 ways to win. 

In terms of bonus features and mechanics, there are mega symbols, cascading wins, wilds and of course jackpots courtesy of the Hold the Jackpot feature, which sees lucrative multiplier bonus symbols stick to the reels on a unique split game screen. 


This cute food-themed slot is pretty charming! Behind the game grid is a wobbly landscape in which everything is created from... Yes, you guessed it, jelly! The grid itself is filled with jelly symbols, these are as follows: cherries, grapes, a watermelon, a raspberry, a lemon, a star, a gummy bear and the number 7.

In terms of this game's soundtrack, a chirpy tune plays on repeat... It's not at all terrible, but it'll probably get on your nerves after a short while.


We'll be honest, this slot seriously confused us at first, we were fully expecting a cluster pays slot (based on the fact it's played on an 8x8 game grid), so when we span the reels and we didn't pick up a win for a large matching cluster of symbols we were rightly thrown off.

It turns out that this is in fact a standard online slot, it's just laid out in a grid formation rather than traditional reels! 

Win Potential

This sweet slot, like all Wazdan games, has adjustable volatility... So you can play your way! There are three options in total, low volatility, medium volatility and high volatility. Regardless of volatility, the RTP will remain at 96.22%, which isn't at all terrible. The maximum amount players can win when playing this slot is 2,500x their stake.

Our Verdict

Jelly Reels is as good as they come when it comes to high-octane gameplay and exciting bonus features and mechanics. We've played multiple slots featuring the Hold the Jackpot feature, but this is arguably one of the best thanks to its innovative split-screen gameplay. It's just a shame the max win is quite low at 2,500x the player's stake.
