A slot machine post is a pretty unusual for this blog and the link to martial arts is somewhat tenuous. However, it is apparently 40 years since the release of ‘Fist of Fury‘ and to celebrate Jackpot Party have created a Bruce Lee Slot Machine. It’s not really my thing but I did have a look and even spent a few play pounds. It was reasonably good fun for a while and I did win big more than once but…… I ended up down by quite a few play pounds! Seeing as it was only play pounds there’s no harm done.
These new-fangled slot games are beyond me, I tried to work out the payments etc but it was a bit too complicated. It’s all a bit different to the one-arm bandits of my youth in the seaside arcades. There’s a lot going on as you can see from the screenshot. As the makers say….
Bruce Lee is a Moneyburst™ slot, an innovation in online video slot technology. In the game, there are three different ways to trigger the BRUCE LEE FEATURE and the game offers some unique visuals, sounds and features found in no other slot game online.
I didn’t ever manage to unlock any features as far as I could tell but it was fun for a while. You can read more about the game in the official press release.
Fist of Fury
One thing for sure though, as the slot game makers say Fist of Fury is a classic film, no doubt about that. Searching YouTube for something suitable to include in the post I came across the following video which is a short vignette and good fun. Although you can actually watch the entire Fist of Fury film on YouTube if you look carefully, or simply opt for the fight scenes in HD!
You just gotta love the dojo fight scenes as well as usual Kung Fu movie revenge-laden plot, cracking fun. And then, of course, the sound effects and dubbed voices all add to the charm and the fantastic athleticism of Bruce Lee in full flow. Fantastic stuff, truly classic.
As I said I don’t normally bother with promoting slot machines or the like, but the bloke who approached me was very decent and is actually a martial artist who reads the blog. He’s a successful kickboxer even winning a World Championship over 12 rounds! He also has a BEng in Sports Engineering at Strathclyde Glasgow, where he designed a “backpack system to speed up the slow twitch and rate of force development when punching”. Interesting stuff, which was better in theory than in actual design, sadly.
So in the few emails we have exchanged we get on well and he is a very decent bloke. I do receive a fair few enquiries concerning promotions but rarely bother, so if anyone wants to promote something on here it has to be pretty good, like the Fists of Vancouver video or you have to try harder than simply spamming my email inbox.
