Head to the boxing arena at the turn of the century, and don’t stop spinning until the bell rings.
We love the look and sounds of this Fisticuffs slot game. The iconic ring of the bell when you win, the cheering crowd when the boxers appear on the screen. The slightly faded tones, yet brilliantly retro graphics.
Even the name sounds wonderfully old fashioned in a way that makes us want to bring the word ‘fisticuffs’ back into the day to day of the English language.
Unfortunately, whilst it looks and sounds fantastic, the game play is not up to par with other NetEnt slots.
Sticky wilds and free re-spins
The boxing ring wild, when the boxers appear, is fun, but, in our opinion, not quite entertaining enough to grab you for the long haul.
Fisticuffs mobile slot is all about the wilds. That’s the main bonus feature here. From straight wilds, to diagonal wilds, to stacked wilds, each arrive via the boxing wild feature when the two boxers find themselves next to each other.
You then get one free re-spin with the wilds staying sticky on the screens for potential bigger wins.
Simple, and for the first 50 spins, fun enough. Very much in the same vein as the Stickers slot, but without the hectic re-spin after re-spin.
Glorious Moustaches in the Fisticuffs slot
Other than that, this is an uncomplicated mobile video slot with a decent 96.7% rate and a fairly good 100,000 coins jackpot.
However, as this is a fairly low variance slot, the chances of winning big here are not huge. This wouldn’t be a problem if there was more than wilds keeping us company on the five reels, but as with the old style boxing theme, once the nostalgia wears off, so does the excitement.
But if you love a simple slot with the occasional knockout wilds, then there are far worse mobile slot games out there, at least with Fisticuffs you get the hope of a good in-game win and decent return rate.
However if you expect constant crazy action, as per other NetEnt slots, then you should keep to Starburst or Jackhammer 2.Visit bgo & claim up to 50 FAIR spins on this game now!
