Punch your way back in time to a boxing ring set in the early 1900s, where gentlemen pummel their way to victory. Net Entertainment’s Fisticuffs video slot offers 5 reels, 10 paylines, and many chances to win big via Straight Wilds, Diagonal Wilds, and Stacked Wilds. With colorful graphics, fun animations, and an easy-to-play structure, Fisticuffs makes a real impact on the video slots scene.
This knock-out fun is fully compatible with mobile, desktop or laptop computers that utilize Windows, Mac, and Linux and is also optimized for mobile use on iOS or Android operating systems via the NetEnt Touch platform featuring high-quality mobile casino games.
The game is set inside an old-time boxing ring, with red curtains drawn behind the ropes and a crowd faintly visible alongside the ring. In the background, you hear the sound of crowds talking and when you spin, you hear a peppy piano song with an old fashioned flavor. Land on a winning payline and you’ll hear the crowd go wild cheering for you.
There are only seven non-Wild symbols in Fisticuffs; three are high-scoring and the other four are of lower values. The lowest value symbol is a metal spit bucket and towel, then an old-fashioned leather boxer’s shoe. Next, there’s a wooden stool, and a brass bell rounds out the lower-value symbols.
The three higher symbols start out with a pair of red boxer’s gloves, then a golden cup trophy, and finally, the top prize on the reels: a golden embellished championship belt.
The Straight Wild depicts a heavyset boxer wearing hiked-up pants, tank top and fedora. He only appears on reel 3 and substitutes for all symbols. The Diagonal Wild showcases a thin, scrappy boxer with a heavy handlebar mustache and scowling expression. He only appears on reels 2 and 4 and can also substitute for any other symbol.
The Boxing Feature is a fun bit of animation involving the different types of Wilds in this game. It transforms adjacent symbols into extra Wilds that remain on the reels for one awarded re-spin and the feature is activated when the Diagonal Wild symbol and the Straight Wild symbols appear next to one another either horizontally or diagonally. When the 2 Wild boxers meet up, they punch one another and that results in a regular Wild symbol popping up between them.
Fisticuffs, like many other simple NetENT slots, lacks a separate bonus game. Rather, bonus features are worked into the standard game play, and in this case, are linked into the Boxing Feature described above. When the 2 boxers knock one another out and extra Wilds appear, this results in a re-spin. During the re-spin, Stacked Wilds can appear only on reels 1 and 5, but of course can add up into more winning paylines and that equals bonus coins in your account.
Ten paylines combine with coin values ranging from 0.01 to 1.00, which leaves you with fairly simple choices when it comes to making a wager. The minimum bet per spin is 0.20, while the maximum you can wager per spin is 200.00. The maximum potential coin jackpot awarded at once is 100,000.
