Set in an action-filled boxing ring in the 1990s, where players are invited to fight their way to ultimate victory, Fisticuffs is an online video slot game with 5 reels and up to 10 paylines.
Along with an exciting and entertaining theme, the Fisticuffs slot comes with some knock-out bonus features too, including wins that pay both ways, stacked wilds, straight wilds, diagonal wilds and respins.
This game is available in real money versions, and at many online casinos for that matter, as well as free/demo versions, allowing a player to become a bit more familiar with Fisticuffs without running the risk of losing any real money.
The reels presented in the Fisticuffs slot have been set in an earlier boxing ring, where red curtains, ropes and an enthusiastic crowd can be seen and the sounds of a muttering crowd and old piano music throughout.
Players that manage to land a winning combination will hear the crowd go wild, further highlighting how much attention to detail with regards to theme has actually been included in this slot.
There is a wide range of boxing-related symbols that appear on the reels of the Fisticuffs online slots NZ game, each displaying well-rendered illustrations and high-quality graphics.
The symbols can be separated into higher, lower and special symbols, with the championship belt offering the most, followed by the trophy and boxing gloves. The lower value symbols are represented by the bell, the stool, the boot and the spit bucket and towel.
There are quite a few special symbols in this game, 2 of which display great renditions of big boned, boxing, moustache-wearing characters as the straight and diagonal wild and another that shows the word Wild in gold.
The wild symbol is the red icon featuring the word wild and some cutesy stars in gold and has the ability to substitute for all other symbols in the Fisticuffs slot game.
The wild will remain on the reels for the respins and can also appear as stacked wilds on the 1st and 5th reels, meaning they will generally cover the entire reel.
The boxing feature in the Fisticuffs online slot ultimately transforms symbols that are adjacent into additional wild symbols that will then remain in place for a respin.
This feature can be triggered when the straight wild symbol and the diagonal wild symbol appear next to each other either horizontally or diagonally on the reels.
The straight wild is the bald man wearing a hat and can only appear on the 3rd reel, substituting for all other symbols when it does.
If at the same time, 1 or 2 diagonal wilds then appear on the same row as the straight wild, the straight wild will punch the diagonal wild onto the 1st or 5th reel, transforming symbols into wilds as it goes by.
The diagonal wild can be identified by the curious looking character with the large moustache and will only ever appear on the 2nd and 4th reels with a spin of the reels.
If 1 or 2 of the diagonal wilds appear diagonally to the straight wild, the diagonal wild will punch the straight wild, ultimately transforming the symbol above or below the diagonal wild into an extra wild symbol.
