Online Slots With Boxing Theme

Published on: December 26, 2012 

Boxing is not as popular a spectator sport as football or golf. But over the years it has generated its own legends from Sugar Ray Robinson to Muhammad Ali to Mike Tyson. But perhaps the most famous of all was the fictional Rocky from the MGM movies who was portrayed on screen by Sylvester Stallone.

The leading software provider Playtech has developed a branded slot on these MGM movies titled Rocky. Stallone as Rocky is the wild symbol. His opponents from the Rocky movies feature as other symbols. When these symbols appear in winning combinations clips from the movies are played on the screen. An interesting feature in this slot game is that the letters R, O, C, K and Y are also symbols. If they appear on the reels in the correct order the player wins 5 times his bet. The Knockout Bonus game on the second screen simulates a boxing bout between Rocky and an opponent chosen by the player. For every round that Rocky wins the player receives a cash award.

The software provider Rival Gaming offers a unique genre of online casino games known as i-slots that have interactive bonus rounds. Heavyweight Gold is the boxing theme slot game from that genre. The introductory clip shows a boxing bout. The thematic symbols on the reels are the boxer, the referee, the opponent, the bell, the belt, the gloves, the girl and the bucket and towel. The animations and audio effects live up to the expectations of Rival Gaming i-slots. In the Heavyweight Gold bonus round a boxing bout is played out in which the player can control the boxer’s actions. The opponents keep changing when the game is triggered again.

The fruit machine is another special genre within the online slots category. The boxing themed Fruit Fight is the fruit machine slot game from the software provider Cryptologic. The thematic symbols are the boxing bell, stars seen after being knocked out and boxing gloves. Different colored sevens make up the other symbols. Fruit machines feature a cash ladder with side games and Fruit Fright offers boxing themed games like Saved by the Bell and Power Punch. In Power Punch the boxer punches the opponent with a power selected from the power bar. The opponent gets knocked out and the referee’s count becomes the multiplier. The feature boards in Fruit Fight are Super Knock Out and Super Heavyweight in keeping with the boxing theme.

Sometimes software providers introduce a comic element in their slot games and Microgaming has done just this with its boxing themed video slot titled Fighting Fish. This slot game features a boxing match between the red fish and the blue fish. The thematic symbols on the reels are the red fish, the blue fish, the crab as a referee, the boxing ring, the championship belt, the boxing gloves and the bucket. Both the red fish and the blue fish are wild symbols. When the red fish appears on reel 2 and the blue fish appears on reel 4 at the same time, they expand to cover the entire reels and trigger the boxing match. The player has to first choose one of the two fish. Then three free spins are run. After this the boxing bout takes place. If the player’s selected fish wins then the payouts during the free spins are doubled.
