Whats not so hot?
Boxing fans will be delighted with Rival’s next installment-Heavyweight Gold. This 3D game is an i-Slot machine that sports a unique boxing theme, in-play bonus rounds, scatters and multipliers. It features 20 paylines and 5 reels with an expanding wild icon (blond boxer).
Heavyweight Gold offers a house edge of 3.5% and a total jackpot payout of 1,000 coins. That’s at the maximum bet per spin. As is the custom with all my slots reviews I play the game for free or for real cash. Long story short this is now my favorite Rival slots. It’s relatively loose and has more bonus games than a sultan has oil.
Paying icons on the reels are the bucket, medical kit, the bell, boxing bag, dumbbell, champions belt, the coach and referee.
Don’t get the gloves on just yet. Select the proper coin denomination first. It begins with a very conservative 0.1 up to 0.25. Ten coins can be wagered per line. The minimum bet per spin is $0.20 and the maximum bet per spin is $50. This game is a delight to both low, medium and high rollers. If it’s your first time playing this video slots I suggest you start off with $0.2 per spin and work your way up to $0.75 (3 lines) per spin.
Suffice it to say I’m a fan of Heavyweight Gold. Overall it’s a superb slots machine with two distinct bonus games (Knock Me Out and Free Spins) as well as an expanding wild. The only caveat I have is that payouts during the base game are not as good as it should be. Especially when the expanding wild icon appears. But it’s a completely different story if you can trigger the bonus games. To sum things up it’s a highly entertaining game with a funny theme to boot.
