The knockout slot is live
Filipino boxing legend Manny Pacquiao is finally showcasing his trademark left hook on the reels. The eight-division world champion is the star of Pacquiao One Punch KO, a knockout slot that has been developed by the talented team at Ganapati.
It was in mid-July that Ganapati announced that it had agreed to produce an online slot based on the boxer known as ‘Pac-Man’. This announcement coincided with Pacquiao’s return to the ring on July 20, which saw him earn a split decision win over American Keith Thurman.

Boxing action on a Tokyo rooftop
Ganapati is renowned for developing online slots with eye-catching visuals, and Pacquiao One Punch KO is certainly no exception. It’s a five-reeled video slot that features nine symbols and 25 paylines.
The fast-paced action takes place in a boxing ring on a rooftop somewhere in the heart of Tokyo, Japan. It’s a cascading reels game, which means you can land multiple blows during every spin. You can also win up to 10 free spins, with a multiplier of 3x to 8x applied to every cascade win.
Landmark release for Ganapati
The release of Pacquiao One Punch KO represents a major milestone in the history of Ganpati. While Pikotaro’s Pineapple Pen slot was Ganapati’s first branded slot, Pacquiao One Punch KO has been recognized as the first global branded slot that the company has released to date.
Commenting on how important this release is for the company to take the next step toward its goal of expanding into new markets, Juliet Adelstein, CEO of Ganapati Europe Holding and Ganapati Malta, said:
This opportunity is extremely exciting for us as it represents Ganapati’s considerable growth within the industry.”
Giving back to the Filipino community
Communities in the Philippines will benefit from this partnership between the software provider and the legendary boxer.
Proceeds from the game will be donated directly to the Manny Pacquiao Foundation, which the boxer founded to help those less fortunate. An exact figure has not been stated, but it is expected to be a considerable amount considering how generous the boxer is.
Pacquiao’s philanthropy has been well documented in the media. Examples of his generosity include paying for 1,000 homes to be built in his hometown, and giving a job and home to an ice cream vendor who had suffered a heart attack. There are many, many others.
