There’s No Rogan in The Belt of Champion Bonus Buy Slot

Love ’em or hate ’em, guys like McGregor and Mayweather make their respective combat sports more exciting to watch. When McGregor was around, I almost religiously watched UFC. Today, the whole thing feels clinical and sterile. I’ll tune in for the big fights and watch highlights of fights that get talked about, but that’s it. I miss the show. I miss McGregor asking, ‘Who the fuck is that guy?’

With my daily dose of the show missing, I have gone searching elsewhere. The Belt of Champion Bonus Buy slot from Evoplay certainly has a name that is ridiculous enough to get me interested. Let’s see if it can do the job.

Step into the octagon

Wilds can appear on the reels in the base game either through the old-fashioned spin or by activating the Wild Time feature. When a wild does appear, it will, like all other wilds, substitute for other symbols to complete winning combinations. In The Belt of Champion Bonus Buy slot wilds can also carry multipliers. These multiplier wild symbols can give your winnings a 2x, 3x, 4x, or 5x boost.

The previously mentioned Wild Time feature can be triggered on any spin. Once triggered, between 5 and 20 wild symbols will be added to the reels. If two or more of these wilds are added to the same position on the reels, the symbol will become a multiplier wild. Up to five wilds can land on the same position with the multiplier increasing by 1x with each subsequent wild up to a maximum of 5x.

The appearance of three or more scatter symbols on the reels will trigger a round of the slot’s free spins features. The number of scatter symbols used to unlock the feature will determine how many wilds are added to the reels during your round of free spins. Three scatter symbols will result in 20 to 50 random wilds, four scatter symbols will result in 40 to 100 random wilds, and five scatter symbols will result in 80 to 200 random wilds.

Before starting a round of the slot’s free spins, you will be required to select 3 of 20 mystery Hit It symbols. Your selected mystery symbols will determine how many random wilds are thrown onto the reels during a round of free spins. Your round of ten free spins will then begin. During your round of free spins, a random number of the random wilds will be thrown onto the reels with each spin. On the final spin, all remaining random wilds will be added to the reels.

Would Dana be proud of The Belt of Champion Bonus Buy slot?

The Belt of Champion Bonus Buy slot has, in addition to a ridiculously long name, medium to high volatility. This means that although the gameplay will lean towards rare big wins, there will be spells of small, consistent wins. If you’re getting at the max $100 per spin, you’ll be playing for $321,300 in winnings. The slot’s RTP is 96.2%.

I think it says a lot about the slot’s commitment to its theme that the action never actually enters the Octagon. The Belt of Champion Bonus Buy slot only ever scratches the very surface of the theme, leaving me, a UFC fan, more than a little underwhelmed. And if you’re not catering to me, what is the target audience for this game? This is all a bit of a shame because the slot’s gameplay and bonus features are otherwise solid. It’s just the theme that lets it down. I give this one a six out of ten. Yes, a little harsh, but as I said, I’m a UFC fan.

If you’re looking for a combat-sport-themed slot that I do recommend, you should give Donkey and The GOATS a try.
