In a format as interesting as its chosen milieu of 19th-century boxing, the Fisticuffs slot provides excitement without a true bonus round by way of some quite interesting features. First off is the “both ways” payout potential. The player pays for 10 paylines, but wins may be had on active paylines from right-to-left and left-to-right.
Fisticuffs also includes two wilds, the “straight” wild and “diagonal” wild, as represented by a pair of archetypical animated pugilists. While both work independently as traditional substituting symbols, when both appear on an active payline, the uncreatively-titled “Boxing Feature” is launched.
When this happens, the boxers beat on each other a bit and are replaced with a minimum of three sticky wilds, formation of which is dependent on the “straight” or “diagonal” designation; these wilds stay put for one free respin. And during the respin, stacked wilds are also in effect.
