The Champ! Slots

The-Champ!The Champ is one of a number of boxing themed games that are offered these days, but the only one to come from Nuworks. It gives you a modern design on which to play and spin reels, but it’s not without its downsides, meaning in this case that poker cards are present as well. Plenty of other pros are there as well though, with good features, progressive jackpots and a feature guarantee that should give you one extra chance if you’re extremely unlucky.

25 bet lines are used in The Champ, a 5 reel slot. You can use multipliers, two types of wilds, scatters, free spins and a boxing themed bonus game. You can also win up to $10,000.

Features of The Champ!

The two wild symbols show off the boxers, while the third symbol is a scatter that can bring you the free games. These spins can then bring on the Fight Feature, the most fun part of the game.

The two wild symbols have their own reels that they appear on, and they have two boxers as their characters. Their names are Pugilist Pete (1st reel) and Boxing Bob (5th reel). You know what you can expect from a wild symbol already, these being capable of substituting for the other symbols found on the same paylines as they are (scatters excluded). They become even more useful during free spins.


The one other symbol from The Champ is the scattered Bell. When you have between two and five such symbols, you can expect a payout from them, worth up to 200 times the bet.

Free Games Feature

The presence of 3+ scattered Bells will bring you not only the prize I just mentioned, but also the free spins. 12 free games are awarded when enough Bells are present.


Wild symbols with boxers in them will become expanding wilds for the duration of the free spins. Free spins do not have Bell scatters, so retriggering them is not an option.

Fight Feature

In order to trigger this feature, you need to be in the free spins feature, and you need to get the Boxers on both the 1st and the 5th reel at the same time.


Once this feature starts, you are taken to a boxing ring, where you choose one of the boxers to represent you. The fight starts, and it will go on until one of the boxers is KO’d. If you chose the winner, you can get up to 12 additional free spins. If your boxer was the loser, the reward is worth the equivalent of 12 triggering bets.


Feature Guarantee

The game gives you a second chance to trigger the free spins, if you are especially unlucky and you don’t manage to do it yourself within 150 base game spins. If you do trigger them, then the number of remaining spins from Feature Guarantee will reset back to 150.

Betting options and jackpots

You can use in your bets between 1 and 25 coins, but you should keep in mind that more coins equal more active lines and better chances to get paid each round. You may use coin values chosen from the $0.01 to $1 range, which would let you bet up to $25 each spin.

Given the 10,000 coins top payout that you can win inside, the value can go as high as $10,000.

Design and symbols

You’re going to find the boxing ring at the top of the screen, while the reels seem to show off the same image but from a top view. You have the reels surrounded by the ropes of the ring, while on them you get the symbols. They’re part poker cards which look like they’re made out of leather with stitching on the sides. The rest are properly themed symbols, and very well done.


Symbols: Pugilist Pete (wild), Boxing Bob (wild), Bell (scatter, 200x the bet), Championship Belt (10,000 coins), Ring Girl (5,000 coins), Referee (2,500 coins), Boxing Gloves (1,000 coins), Bucket (500 coins), Ace (250 coins), King (250 coins), Queen (250 coins), Jack (250 coins), 10 (200 coins) and 9 (200 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

From the theme choice, to the design, the features which are different from those offered in other slots, or the prizes, the game makes plenty of good decisions and overall what you get is a high quality title.

The Champ! can be found at any NuWorks casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
