Fisticuffs was a NetEnt slot that was released in 2013 and got canceled in 2016.
The game used a boxing theme and came with 5 reels, each 3 symbols high and used 10 paylines. But Fisticuffs pays both ways, so from left to right and from right to left, in a ways creating 20 paylines.
It all revolved around a boxing theme and getting 2 boxers on reels next to each other, horizontal or diagonal. The guys would fight it out turning into wilds and also making any symbols they were on wild.
After this you got a free re-spin were stacked wild symbols appeared on reels 1 and 5, giving you a higher chance for a big win.
On reel 3 there was also a normal wild symbol. And when the boxers appeared next to this wild on either sides, they would punch each other all the way to reel 1 and 5. Giving you 5 wild symbols on a line. And giving you, again, a free respin.
This would mean that you would receive big wins in a row, guaranteed!
Fisticuffs was another one of those unique NetEnt slot games that offered features that hadn’t been done yet. I used to play this slot and really enjoyed it.
The game was discontinued because of a lack of interest.
