Boxing is the theme of this classy online slot called Heavyweight Gold Slots and it’s focus is the noble art of boxing – mano y mano in a small canvas ring cheered on by a huge crowd of dubious character. Here is a game where the opportunity to fight your way to the top should appeal to everyone. The backdrop to the game is a boxing ring in a huge arena. All the symbols are boxing-related and include a bucket/towel, a first aid kit, a dumbbell, a punch ball, a record deck, a championship belt, the trainer and the referee.
This game has 5 reels and 20 pay lines through which you'll need to bob and weave to get the best results and, just like in real boxing, delivering the perfect combination is crucial. First you'll need to decide how much punch you want to pack in the spin-stakes department by hitting the reels with a combination of 1 to 20 lines, 1 to 10 coins, and coin-values ranging from 0.01 to 0.25, allowing spin-stakes from 0.01 coins a spin up to 50 coins a spin.
The Heavyweight Champion is your highest-paying symbol in Heavyweight Gold slots, paying from 5 to 1000 coins, depending upon how many of him you can get to hit a pay line (and you only need two of him to start). He is followed not-so-closely by the Ref (15 to 500 point range) and then his Coach (10 to 400 point range).
Spin in 3 or more Chicken-Legs Cedric on the reels and you'll step into the ring with this skinny-legged, safety-helmet wearing contender, where defeating him guarantees a prize. The contenders do get progressively harder though, including the redneck Texas Tommy, and Mohican Marvin (a Clubber Lang wannabee), and you’ll have to avoid their punches and land your own to win the bouts and the winner’s purse on this game.
All symbols (outside of the Heavyweight Champion) will require at least three on a pay line to win. If you are confused as to which lines you have won during a game, you can visit the Pay Table, which features the winning lines with blinking numbers. Non-scatter-symbol play goes from left to right. Special symbols include three separate opponents which are bonus icons, a ring girl scatter symbol and boxing glove wilds. Those wilds appear only on reels one, two and three and if they can make a winning combo, will expand to fill that whole reel, giving you more opportunities for extra wins.
The ring girl is the key to these spins and you must land three or more of her anywhere on the reels to trigger this feature; you will receive the following: Three girls – ten spins + 3x multiplier. Four girls – twenty spins + 3x multiplier. Five girls – one hundred spins + 3x multiplier. If you can land three or more girls during this feature, the appropriate number of extra spins will be added to your total.
The Boxing Gloves symbol is the wild in Heavyweight Gold. The Boxing Gloves Wild only appears on reels 1, 2, and 3. The Boxing Gloves wild symbol will expand with winning combinations! The Boxing Gloves will substitute for any symbol, except the Opponent and the Girl Scatters.
There are 4 scatter symbols in Heavyweight Gold I-Slots, and those are; the Three Opponents (which I’ve named in the most descriptive way I can): Skinny, Hairy, and Mr. T (all three heavyweight scatters are in the same weight class), and the fourth scatter is the Girl symbol. Three or more of the Girl scatter symbols will trigger Free Spins. The Knockout Bonus Round is activated when 3 (or more) Opponents enter the ring. While the three fighters look different, just having any combination of these 3 heavyweight scatters on the reels counts toward the Bonus Round trigger.
Three or more Girl symbols will trigger the Heavyweight Gold Free Spins, and once activated will give the following free games: 10 free games are awarded with 3 heavyweight game Girl scatters. 20 free games are awarded with 4 heavyweight game Girl scatters. 100 free spins will be awarded when you get 5 of these ladies on a pay line! Heavyweight Gold Free spin pay outs have a 3x multiplier!
The Heavyweight Gold slots Knockout Bonus is triggered when three or more Opponents (Skinny, Hairy, or Mr. T) bounce onto the reels. A new screen will launch with specific instructions, but, for the most part, it is self-explanatory: You’re in the ring, you’re fighting, and your goal is to KO your opponent before he does the same to you. You’ll get scored on several key areas-including accuracy, defence, and style-so throw your punches and place your blocks as best you can.
This game is good fun and is triggered by landing three or more of the opponents anywhere on the reels and your task is to defeat your opponent by hitting him at the right time and blocking his punches when necessary. The opponents are easy to begin with but get progressively harder with each worth a bigger prize than the previous one. You will notice a new opponent on the reels after each fight and you only compete in one bout per feature trigger.
The fighting is not too tricky but it does get harder so use the initial bouts to hone your technique. Slots with some player interactivity are an all-too-rare occurrence so this is a welcome diversion; it’s fun and fast-moving with several bonus features so give it a go.
You will be happy to know that even the worst fighter can still receive plenty of points just for playing. Like anything else, it is all about practice and determination and the more you play Heavyweight Gold Slots, the more likely you can trigger this round, and more likely you will master it. There are a lot of coins to be earned in this ring, so put money where your mouth is and start playing Heavyweight Gold Slots today!
