In last week’s Slot Moments I promised another low bet with a high reward, and this one is up there. A $1.20 wager, which is minimum bet on the 2 cent denomination of Hold On To Your Hat, yielded an exciting Grand Jackpot!
To be Grand eligible on Hold On To Your Hat, you have to first land the free spins bonus with three or more hat symbols, then get a hat symbol to land in the same space three times between the triggers and the free spins to upgrade to a gold lock border. This is similar to Huff ‘n Puff in that regard. Learn more about the game and it’s bonuses here.
Then, when the prizes reveal, it could be a Grand, another Jackpot or a credit prize, so it’s by no means guaranteed. However, you are Grand eligible at any bet if you manage to do all of this, and in this case it was SLOTaholic that made the magic happen.
Josh starts with a relatively modest budget, and goal – $100 in, $1.20 bets, and a goal of a 100x bonus win. This is certainly the right type of game to attempt this, given it’s difficulty of getting a bonus, but the general generosity of the bonuses when you get into them.
He got a number of retriggers during his bonus, and ended up with three chances at the Grand jackpot via three gold borders. The first two were Minis. The third was not, and the outcome is slightly better than his goal. Forget 100x – this is a 10,000x multiple of his bet – insanely generous, and of course exciting. You don’t often get to see a Grand Jackpot won, but to do so on such a small bet is certainly unusual.
