Relax Gaming is keeping it all in the family with the release of its second network branded game, IT’S TIME, featuring the “Voice of MMA,” Bruce Buffer, which coincides with the launch of the boxing-themed title based on older brother Michael’s (Buffer) renowned announcement, “Let’s Get Ready to Rumble.”

The Malta-based casino games provider’s  6-reel, four-row slot was created in association with the 62-year-old professional mixed martial arts ring announcer and features the catchphrase “IT’S TIME!”

Let’s Get Ready To Rumble has already proved to be a smash hit.”


With its distinctive 90s arcade feel and 40 fixed paylines, the high volatility slot offers players brave enough to step into the MMA octagon a chance to earn up to 2500x their stake.

Playable from 0.10 to €/£100 per spin, the slot also offers plenty of re-spins and the possibility for huge wins, with exciting features such as the Hot Spot feature, which can transform all of the game’s high-paying symbols into wilds, and the Fighter Bonus and Buffer Bonus, packed with prizes.

two exceptional network branded titles

Players who are up to the challenge in the Fighter Bonus, vying against the four MMA fighters hungry for a title, are awarded five re-spins. During the feature, all of the fighter symbols land and stick until the bonus game has ended.

Upon completion of the bonus, the fighter who has the most symbols visible wins the fight while any losing symbols are converted into winning ones, earning players big payouts.

The Bruce Bonus offers even more re-spins and is triggered when a full stack of Bruce Buffer symbols appear on reel one and six, as new symbols stick and the ‘spins left’ count is reset to three.

Game similarities:

While the tag-team of Buffer brother releases both utilize a 6×4 layout, It’s Time offers fewer ways to win and could be a tad more volatile at 96.74 percent RTP versus 96.14 percent for Let’s Get Ready to Rumble. Both slots also pack a ton of features and have intense soundtracks and animations.

Commenting on the new partnerships with the Buffer brothers, Chief Product Officer for Relax Gaming, Simon Hammon, said in the official press release

“Partnering with Michael and Bruce Buffer to create these two exceptional network branded titles demonstrates Relax Gaming is at the top of its game in creating innovative content.

“Let’s Get Ready To Rumble has already proved to be a smash hit, and the addition of IT’S TIME!! will continue to drive our portfolio’s strong performance with the same high quality of immersive gameplay, thrilling features and a unique theme that resonates with a variety of players.”
