Where to play Fisticuffs
Fisticuffs video slot NetEnt
Fisticuffs is a fun but simple video slot machine game that anyone can quickly learn to play. It has a boxing theme to it and is set on the boxing industry in the first years of the 1900s. Everything from the sound effects to the symbols used in the game reflects its theme.
The symbols used in the game are a skinny boxer boasting a mustache, a fat boxer boasting a bowler hat, an ice bucket, boxing gloves, a stool, a bell, boxing boots and a championship belt.
Unlike a typical video slot machine game, Fisticuffs actually has three different wild symbols. One of them is a red circle that has “wild” written in it. The fat boxer serves as the game’s straight wild symbol. Unlike the other wild symbols the fat boxer will only ever show up on the third reel. The third wild symbol in this game is the diagonal wild, which is represented by the skinny boxer and is limited to the second reel and fourth reel only.
In the event that the skinny boxer diagonal wild ends up on the same reel as the fat boxer straight wild the skinny boxer punches the fat boxer and moves him to the first reel, the fifth reel or both reels. At that point any regular symbols in between the two boxers will change into the basic red wild symbol.
The Boxing feature of Fisticuffs gives players an even bigger chance at winning money. Anytime the straight wild and diagonal wild (fat boxer and skinny boxer) end up on the reels next to each other players get a re-spin. When a re-spin is taking place the wild symbols on the screen do not move or disappear.
With five reels and 10 pay lines this game can provide hours of entertainment without breaking the bank. Though there is no progressive jackpot tied to the game, and not even a multiplier to increase the amount of money players can win, that has not stopped players all over the world from enjoying this game. The top jackpot in the game is $5,000, which is still a decent amount of money in the eyes of most players.
Unlike most video slot machines Fisticuffs doesn’t have a scatter symbol, though the three wild symbols make up for it, as most video slot machine games only have one wild symbol.
Anyone who has ever enjoyed a fighting game on any video game console will probably get a blast from the past when they play Fisticuffs. During the game’s boxing feature when the skinny boxer punches the fat boxer many players are reminded of their favorite old Atari or Nintendo games. This blast from the past keeps many players coming back to the game repeatedly.
The music that plays when one gets a winning combination is often enough to keep them focused on and interested in the game. It helps move the game along and gets players excited to hear the music indicating a win.
