Fisticuffs ™ Online Slots from Net Entertainment
The level of creativity that Net Entertainment manages to infuse into its online slots games is what makes this developer as popular as it is, and Fisticuffs ™ does not disappoint. The theme for this game is based on the art of boxing, and the setting is the turn of the 20th Century, skilfully depicted along with a music-hall, piano-styled soundtrack. It has five reels and ten paylines, and features an array of symbols that tie into the theme, including a trainer’s stool; boxing gloves; boots; a spit bucket; a towel; a bell; and the championship belt. There are two wild symbols available for players to make use, a hefty fellow for the straight wild on the third reel, and a less pudgy pugilist for the diagonal wild on the second and fourth reels.
Bonus Features for Fisticuffs ™ Slots
In the same manner as a number of other Net Entertainment games, the bonus features for Fisticuffs ™ take place from inside the base game, and do not require the player to head to a different screen in order to enjoy them.
The so-called Boxing feature has two mini-game bonus features within it:
- The Straight Wild
This is able to appear on the third reel alone, and is activated if the diagonal wild appears alongside him on the second and/or fourth reels. The straight wild will punch the diagonal, depending on which side of the icon he has appeared, into one of the five remaining reels, thus creating a set of three wild symbols along the row. These wilds will operate under the bet in place as the feature begins and will remain fixed for a complimentary respin.
- The Diagonal Wild
If the diagonal wild appears obliquely alongside the straight wild the symbol appearing above or below the diagonal will become a wild icon, once again freezing in place and awarding the player a free respin.
During these respins stacked wilds are able to appear on all the reels in order to help the player form some extra winning combinations and thus boost his or her bankroll.
How Fisticuffs ™ Play Unfolds
The paylines for Fisticuffs ™ are a fixed amount of ten, and the five reels and three rows extend across these. The bet levels for the game are adjustable, with coin values selected by the player by means of the button s provided, and there is a win both ways payline structure in place for the game.
There are ten different betting levels available for Fisticuffs ™, and seven different coin values, with these amounts ranging from as little as 0.01 to a far more substantial 1. This amount is the total amount of coins the player will be betting per line, and so the amount for each will need to be multiplied by ten and then two, because of the win both ways feature, to reflect the total amount of money wagered per spin. The minimum bet level per spin is thus 0.2, and the maximum 200.
Fisticuffs ™ has been classified as a low variance video slot, so it will suit both more conservative bettors and their higher rolling counterparts. The payout rate is 96.7%, above average, and the top prize for the game is a very significant 100 000 coin jackpot.
