The combination of martial arts and other combat sports helps this game to appeal to those who prefer sports like these rather than football or baseball. It's also nice to see a change from cutesy themes to something more action packed.
Hand to Hand Combat is a fun scratcher game that is reminiscent of games from your youth
With combat sports and martial arts all the rage these days, it should not come as a surprise that a Hand to Hand Combat scratch game has been devised by Microgaming.
The theme of Hand to Hand Combat is a mix of martial arts images and the old children's game of Rock, Paper, Scissors. Characters in kung fu movie get-ups play a variation of the old game. As odd as this sounds, the game does offer a chance for players to win a decent payout when the right combos turn up.
Since Hand to Hand Combat is not a video pokie game, there are no bonuses built into play. Certain winning results do deliver big money so walking away with a lot of cash is possible. The maximum bet is $10 and players can win up to 100 coins, which can turn out to be a huge payout. Once a card is dealt, there are five chances to win so that could be deemed a built-in bonus.

Yes, the rules of the game are simple and easy to follow. Newbies to gaming might find this a nice first game to wager on.
