Do you like fast-paced casino game action? Have you ever wanted Mike Tyson to be at your side while you’ve been spinning the Roulette wheel on the hunt for prize-winning payouts? If the answer to either one of those questions is to scream a big, fat “Yes!”, then surely you won’t go far wrong with Mike Tyson Roulette from Inspired Gaming via the NYX Gaming Group. Not only do we have the option to chase all the usual Roulette bets, but we can also take a swing at the Knockout Bonus to bag ourselves even more cold, hard, knuckle-busting cash.
Bearing Mike Tyson’s name, we expect a whole lot of Mike on the mic when we play the game. And that’s exactly what we get. Mike takes his place as our Croupier, inviting us to “Place your bets” and advising “No more bets”. It’s gratuitous, seeing as this isn’t a Live Roulette game and we’re the only ones playing, but isn’t that just perfectly fitting for Iron Mike, too? We’re just glad there’s no chance of having our ears bitten off or our faces punched in.
As far as betting goes, it’s super easy. The betting layout is our main view, being replaced by the Roulette wheel when we hit the Bet button. The wheel spins and simulates the spinning and bouncing of the ball, awarding our wins according to standard Roulette payouts. But it is in the Knockout Bonus game where this casino game really elevates itself above the other Roulette competition.
Regular Roulette bonuses come in the form of various payouts that relate to our bet. These still exist here, in what we might call the Roulette base game. Mike Tyson Roulette pays out standard Roulette payouts when we land the correct bets, so a 1:1 payout for Red/Black, Odd/Even and 1-18/19-36 bets. Helpfully, the tab at the bottom of the screen details our bet type and the payout we can expect when we place the bet – a handy feature.
But our shot at Knockout Bonus gold comes when we place a bet on the the Knockout Bonus bet and the ball lands on the Knockout Bonus symbol. Now, a series of four punchbags showcase a set of multiplied prizes. We punch the heck out of these punch bags (not literally, but via a button on screen). When we punch them, we shake off a set of multiplied prizes, leaving us with potential prizes. We can collect an amount that Mike Tyson offers us, or we can opt to continue punching in a bid to scoop the 500.00 top prize payout.
Mike Tyson is so proud of it, he put his name on it! And he got paid a shed load of royalties, which I’m sure had nothing to do with it. Not that I’d suggest as much to his face, of course. The upshot for us is that we have one heck of a playable Roulette version, with a great option for a bonus game that we won’t find at any other Roulette table. Let’s punch, Mike!
