Outback Gold: Hold and Win Slot (iSoftBet)

Outback Gold: Hold and Win Slot (iSoftBet)Outback Gold: Hold and Win is the latest from iSoftBet, and the slot takes you on a tour to Australia’s most dangerous areas.

The Australian desert is not a favourable place for human beings, but the developer has made it more inhabitable via this new slot machine.

I had a rewarding experience playing this Hold and Win type of slot, and here are more details about my experience:

Game Set-Up

Outback Gold: Hold and Win is set on the common 5x3 reels, and the slot offers up to 25 active pay lines.

There is a good mix of features among them the Hold and Win respins stacked wilds and a Lightning Modifier.

Betting and Prizes

As a real money gamer, I was required to use at least 25 coins per spin. This meant that I could use about $0.25 to spin one round. The highest amount that can go to each round is $25.

This slot offers a top prize of up to 5,000x the stake from just one spin, which is not so bad considering that this is a medium volatility slot.

The Hold and Win respins feature pay as much as1,000x the stake (which is the Mega Jackpot). However, more rewards can still come via it.

The 96% RTP that iSoftBet has given the slot serves its level of volatility quite well.

Outback Gold: Hold and Win Features

Stacked wilds are among the available features, and I love the impact that they have on the game.

These wilds cover the entire reels, and the best part is that they can appear anywhere on the reels. The stacked wilds also serve as replacements for the regular icons.

A Lightning Modifier is the slot’s random feature, and you can identify it quickly since it involves a lightning strike. Once it strikes, you can get a direct trigger of the main feature, a cash prize, the Hold and Win respins, or better, an upgrade of the gold coins into the platinum versions.

Another way to get the Hold and Win Respins is by simultaneously landing 5+ Coin symbols in view. You may get then un different colours (Gold or Platinum). The Platinum coins serve as a booster to the multiplier during the respins (1x per coin).

Theme & Design

As already mentioned, iSoftBet has borrowed inspiration for this title from the Australian desert. Although this is not unusual in any way, I must admit that it is not a very common theme among developers.

The symbols have their focus on four of the country’s wild creatures, and there are some low paying symbols as well, and these come in the image of Royals (Jack to Ace).

The feature symbols are Stacked wilds, plus the Bonus Coins (gold and platinum).


This appears to be a great slot machine to try, and it comes from a company known for incorporating the streak respin concept into their new games. I particularly enjoyed the top payment, which comes from a title with moderate volatility.

Overall, Outback Gold: Hold and Win is a great slot machine that is ideal for all levels of players.
