Fisticuffs slots

fisticufsThe slot Fisticuffs is a funfilled game inspired by old-fashioned boxing matches. Examples of symbols that adorn the reels are a brass bell, a wooden stool, a towel & spit bucket, boxing shoes, boxing gloves, a golden trophy, and a golden championship belt.

Interestingly, boxing gloves are used by the boxers in this game, even though the term fisticuffs in standard English pertains to a type of boxing where two individuals fight each other without boxing gloves or any other padding on their hands. This is also known as bare-knuckle fighting.

The reels have been placed inside an old-style boxing ring, with ropes and red curtains. If you keep the sound on, you will be able to hear the crowd waiting for the match to commence before you start spinning, and when you do spin the reels, and an engaging piano tune will start up. Get a winning combo and the crowd will break out into a hearty cheer.

Wild symbols are very important in Fisticuffs, and you can get help from straight wilds, diagonal wilds and stacked wilds.

Wilds

  • The heavy-weight boxer with the Feodora is a Straight Wild. He can only appear on the third reel. He can substitute for any symbol to help you form a winning combo.
  • The fly-weight boxer with the handlebar mustache is a Diagonal Wild. He can only appear on the second or fourth reel. He can substitute for any symbol to help you form a winning combo.

If the two boxers appear close enough to each other, they will start fighting each other, and this can be beneficial to you since they tend to knock adjacent symbols so hard they turn into wilds. The newly formed wild (or wilds) remains in place while the reels re-spin.

Stacked Wilds are possible, but only on the first and fifth reels.

Trivia

  • The first bare-knuckle champion of England was the prizefighter James Figg (1684-1734). He claimed the title in 1719 and successfully held on to it until he retired from bare-knuckle fighting in 1730.
  • In June 1722, Elizabeth Wilkinson challenged Hannah Hayfield to what is believed to have been the first female bare-knuckle prizefight in London. Alongside the abovementioned Figg, Wilkinson went on to become one of the most popular and well-known boxers of the early 18th century. She retired from prizefights in 1728.
  • The record for the longest bare-knuckle fight is 6 hours and 15 minutes, a match that took place in Fiery Creek, Victoria, Australia on December 3, 1855. The fighters were James Kelly and Jonathan Smith, and the contest was won by Kelly, as Smith gave in after 17 rounds.
