9 Coinsв„ў slot REVIEW
9 Coins™ ReviewWazdan has long since found their format, and they keep experimenting within its boundaries, adding new innovations here and there. 9 Coins™: Hold the Jackpot comes with the sub-subtitle ‘Cash Infinity™’, which certainly has a nice ring to it. If you’re imagining an infinite amount of cash coming your way you might be disappointed however, as it refers to a cash symbol that remains in place until the bonus triggers.
This symbol will come in handy though, not least since the sole purpose of the base game is to trigger the bonus round. That’s right, you cannot win anything in the base game in terms of cash, so all payouts come from the Hold the Jackpot feature. The streak respins style bonus comes with a collector multiplier symbols, jackpots and mystery symbols, and filling the grid awards the hard-capped 500x max win.

9 Coins™ Slot Features
You cannot win anything in the base game, so what you want is to land 3 symbols on the middle row. This triggers the Hold the Jackpot Bonus, and the Cash Infinity symbol may help you out in that regard. It’s basically a cash symbol that becomes sticky until the bonus round triggers, and if it appears on the middle row it will also help trigger the feature.
Regular cash symbols come with random prizes of 1x to 5x, while the Cash Infinity symbol awards prizes between 5x and 10x your stake. All symbols present on the triggering spin, as well as any Cash Infinity symbols, become sticky on the otherwise cleared 3x3 Hold the Jackpot grid. You start with 3 respins, and the tally resets for each new symbol you land.
You can land Mini, Minor and Major jackpot symbols, and these pay 10x, 20x and 50x your stake, respectively. A treasure chest collector symbol will accumulate all values from cash and cash infinity symbols onto itself, and multiply the amount randomly by 1-9x. In addition, you’ve got Mystery symbols that can turn into any symbol except cash infinity, while the Jackpot Mystery symbol will always reveal 1 of the 3 jackpots.
The Hold the Jackpot bonus round ends when you either run out of spins, or you manage to fill all 9 positions on the grid with symbols of any kind. The latter awards the Grand Jackpot worth 500x your stake, and this nullifies all other winnings since 500x is the game’s hard-capped max win.
Finally, non-UK players, and anyone eligible, can check out the Bonus Buy menu, and it comes with 4 options in this game:
Low volatility - pay 50x your stake for 2 triggering cash coins and 1 cash infinity coin.
Standard volatility - pay 75x your stake for 1 cash coin, 1 cash infinity coin and 1 mystery symbol.
High volatility - pay 100x your stake for 2 infinity cash coins and 1 mystery symbol.
Extreme volatility - pay 150x your stake for 2 infinity cash coins, 1 mystery symbol and 1 jackpot mystery symbol.
The 200 Spins 9 Coins™ Slot Experience
We grinded along in the base game for a while, until we decided to purchase the top-tier bonus round. This happens around 1 minute into the 2:17-minute highlights video, and you can see for yourself how we fared by hitting the play button below.
While we’ve seen similar installments from Wazdan before, there’s nothing quite like 9 Coins™ out there. The Cash Infinity innovation makes sure of that, and you get to choose your preferred volatility and pace from 3 settings as usual. We plowed through plenty of spins on the low and high volatility setting, and the difference is quite noticeable. You get far more frequent bonus triggers on low volatility compared to high, and at the most the difference was more than 100 spins.
You win nothing in the base game, as mentioned, but on low volatility you cannot expect massive returns from the Hold the Jackpot bonus either. Not that you’re guaranteed that from the high volatility setting either, and 500x is not a super impressive potential anyway. Keeping afloat didn’t seem too hard no matter the setting though. It’s a bold move to remove all base game wins, but with the turbo maxed out you don’t notice it too much on low/standard volatility settings.
If you appreciate 9 Coins™ Slot you should also try:
Sizzling Eggs - is a fantasy-themed installment from Wazdan, and the top-reel comes with Collector Eggs that accumulate cash and jackpot prizes in the bonus round. The eggs can be modified by 3 feature symbols, including the trademarked collect to infinity symbol, and the max win is 2,500x your stake.
Magic Spins - is another cosmic-themed release from Wazdan, and it comes with a highly unusual grid with mega-sized positions. These land special symbols only, and you get the collect to infinity feature in the hold the jackpot round which comes with a hard-capped 2,500x potential.
9 Burning Dragons - is a asian-style slot in the Hold the Jackpot series from Wazdan, and you get a 3x3 grid where matching symbols pay anywhere. You can win up to 200x in the base game, while 2,187x your stake is possible in the bonus game. You can also gamble to double your winnings up to 7 times in a row.
