Wolf Canyon Hold and Win Slot (IsoftBet)
iSoftBet has a long list of Hold & Win slot titles, and the developer is regularly adding to this category by releasing new games that rely on this mechanism.
The latest is Wolf Canyon Hold and Win, a slot that borrows its theme from the North American wildlife. It seems to be a slot with very good potential, and we will discuss this in the unbiased review below:
Wolf Canyon offers a 5x3 reel design, with up to 25 active lines. For the features, iSoftBet has provided things like regular and stacked wilds, free spins, instant cash prizes (known by the word Dreamcatcher), as well as the Hold & Win respins.
Betting and Prizes
Wolf Canyon allows real money bets of between $0.25 and $25 per spin. The slot offers excellent top payouts of as much as 8,888x the bet amount.
The developer has given the slot medium volatility, with a very decent RTP of 96%.
Wolf Canyon: Hold and Win Features
The slot comes with many features among them the Totem Wilds. These will serve as substitutes/replacement symbols for the regular icons when you are forming winning combos.
What I love most about this feature is the fact that it has the ability to expand and cover the entire reel. Also, you will only get the wilds on reels 2-5, which means that these will not be able to pay directly.
Dreamcatcher is the other feature that iSoftBet has considered, and it will appear randomly on the reels. This feature carries huge potential, and with it, you can get prizes of between 8x and 8,888x the stake. I can actually refer to it as an instant cash prize slot feature.
You will also be working with a Wolf Feature, but this one will require at least three scatters landing on the reels to gain access. It works in a very interesting way whereby; you will be required to select one of the two available wolves (white or black). Afterwards, the slot will reveal whether you’re lucky or not with the free spins or the Hold & Win respins feature.
The Hold & Win feature relies on the respins. To activate it, you will require several money symbols (these come in the image of Cash Moon) landing on the reels (at least 5 symbols are needed).
Each of the symbols will have a prize on it, and it will turn into sticky form for the initial 3 respins. Once you are over with the respins, they will be reset back to 3 each time new money symbols appear. If any money symbols appear in the feature, then they will be turned into sticky form.
When the respins are over, or if you manage to fill all the available 15 positions with money symbols, this feature will come to an end. At this point, Wolf Canyon will pay you by each money symbol that is present at the time. If you are lucky to meet all the requirements, then you will be lucky to receive Jackpots of up to 1,000xs.
The slot also comes with a free spins feature, and this is where I can say that I benefited the most. With this feature, you get 8 to 12 rounds, in addition to between 25 to 100 extra wilds. It is also possible to retrigger the free spins feature by landing another batch of 3+ Wolf scatters.
Theme & Design
IsoftBet has used the wolf as the main character on the slot, and you will get it in different variants as part of its symbols.
It has a heavy connection to the Native American wildlife, especially via the Totem Wilds. Symbols include three wolves, a Native American lady, and the Royals (9 to K). For the feature symbols, Wolf Canyon has Totem Wilds, Cash Moon, and the game logo.
Wolf Canyon is a great addition to the Hold & Win list of games. IsoftBet made it much more interesting by providing several great features, alongside very good payouts. It’s a slot that can be enjoyed by both professional and casual players.
