Colossus Hold & Win Slot (iSoftBet)

Colossus Hold & Win Slot (iSoftBet)The Ancient Greece theme is one of the most used inspirations by slot developers, and we are going to have one more addition to this ever-growing list.

Colossus: Hold & Win from iSoftBet is the latest to join the list, and it is a game that incorporates fairly common ideas as the streak respins.

Let us dig deeper to see what this new title has in store for gamers:

Game Set-Up

Colossus: Hold & Win relies on the standard 5x3 reels with 20 lines. It relies on the Hold & Win feature, plus a couple of other features like the expanding wilds, and the Colossus Spins among others.

Betting and Prizes

ISoftBet always gives its games a simple betting system, and it is what I got to work with on this slot.

To place a real money wager, I needed at least $0.20 on each spin, while the MAX that can go into the game is $20 per spin.

Colossus: Hold & Win has a good payout potential, and on a good day, it can pay up to10,000x the stake ($200,000) per spin.

However, please note that the slot is brutally volatile, which gives it a significant amount of risk. The RTP of 96% helps cool things a little bit though.

Colossus: Hold & Win Features

The expanding wilds will be present on reels 2-5, and what I love most about it helps the player to easily form winning combos.

Colossus: Hold & Win has many other features, and my favourite is the scatter symbols. They come in the shape of Coins with cash prizes on them, and with 6+, I was happy to activate the Hold & Win Respins.

At this moment, I received 3 respins, while the triggering Coins got into a sticky form during the feature. More respins could trigger more Coins, and as usual, they become sticky. When all is over, the respins will reset back to 3.

At the end of the feature, I was paid for each Coin symbol I had collected, and the amount is random.

At this point, you get several other features that come into play like the multiplier of between 2x and 10x. This can be randomly triggered then applied to all coin prizes that are on the locked reels.

Then there is the Colossus Spin which is brought by the presence of 15 Coins. It may not be an easy accomplishment, but the subsequent Colossus Spin makes it all worth it.

This is the one that will deliver one of the fixed jackpots, including the top jackpot of 10,000x the stake. There are smaller ones as well, and these are the Major (500xs) and the Minor (50x).

Theme & Design

It is quite obvious that iSoftBet went with the Ancient Greece theme here.  The main focus is on the Colossus of Rhodes.

There is a good collection of symbols that include the usual low-value Royals, Greek warriors, weapons, body armour, and the trireme ships.


Colossus: Hold & Win is an ok game and one that offers a decent mix of features. I’m impressed by its top jackpot and decent RTP, but the slot should be approached with care owing to its high volatility.
