Anyone around for the 90s cultural/childhood phenomenon that was video gaming will appreciate Amaya Games’ release of Street Fighter II, an online slot that incorporates and displays a great deal of the classic video game with the same name, including poor graphics.
This game is played out over 5 reels and up to 25 paylines, with a handful of bonus features offering bigger chances at winning. Some of the bonus features will be nothing new to an experienced player, such as wild symbols, while others include an unlikely twist.
Street Fighter II can be played at a number of online and mobile casinos worldwide, with free as well as real money play available at a host of them.
Theme and Graphics
The theme for this particular slot game is one that expresses a hearty tribute to the Street Fighter II video game, with players even prompted to pick their preferred fighter before beginning the game.
That said, the graphics, unfortunately, follow suit and display relevant imagery that looks as though it was rendered in the early 90s, and quite possibly on a sketch pad. If anything, this slot can be commended for a consistent theme rather than an attractive interface.
Players are presented with an uncomplicated interface in the Street Fighter II slot games, with fairly simple design allowing players to easily navigate their way through gameplay.
All action buttons have been placed below the reels and allow players to control & play the mobile casino game to their preference, allowing players to alter the number of lines, change their bets, spin the reels and more.
Players have the option to play up to 25 paylines, bearing in mind that more lines played result in bigger payouts, as well as bets ranging from as little as 0.01 to as much as 20.00 coins per line.
Street Fighter II Symbols
The symbols found in the Street Fighter II slot games are consistent with the theme and display imagery of boxing gloves, weapons and more.
There are higher value, lower value and special symbols in this game, with the low-value symbols displaying playing card icons such as Ace King, Queen, Jack, 10 and 9 and the high-value symbols displaying the weapons and gloves, as well as a skull necklace and spiked bracelets.
The special symbols in this particular game are the fighting characters which act as wilds and trigger the bonus game.
Street Fighter II Feature
at the beginning of the game, players are prompted to pick one of the available characters to fight for the duration of the game. However, their fight will, in fact, be to substitute for all other symbols in the game.
This essentially means that the fighter picked in the beginning of the game will be the wild symbol and aid in completing winning combinations as well as triggering the additional bonus game with Spin Casino NZ.
When a player’s chosen fighter appears on the 2nd reel and Bison (the enemy) lands on the 4th reel, the bonus game will be triggered, those 2 reels will expand and become completely wild.
During this feature, the 1st and 5th reels will contain 4 new symbols including boots, fists, boots and fists and a star (signature move), which will essentially determine the fighter’s next move.
