Street Fighter II: Graphics and Theme
As you might expect the graphics, theme and soundtrack are solely based on the Street Fighter franchise. The home screen even has the same pixelated graphics and the iconic font that we all recognise.
Before you start playing the slot game, you will need to pick one of the eight original characters, which include Ryu, Ken, Sagat, Guile, Chun Li, Blanka, Dhalsim and E.Honda, to represent you in the fight that runs alongside the main slot gameplay.
The background will change depending on the location of your fight and will reflect the country’s style and culture. The locations include the USA, USSR, India, Japan and Brazil.
The game’s symbols are made up of the main characters as well as playing card symbols J, Q, K & A. The reels themselves are in a basic grid format with a health bar located on top.
As you spin the reels, the characters will fight creating classic arcade game sounds to keep you entertained with a jiggling coin noise when you land a winning combo.
Street Fighter II: The World Warrior is packed full of bonus features to take the standard gameplay to the next level. Here’s what you can expect…
Beat the Boss Free Spins
As we mentioned, you have to select one of the eight main characters at the start to represent you in the battle feature in the main game against a randomly selected opponent. The battle can last for any number of spins but ends when one of the characters loses all of their health points, which you will see at the top of the screen. If your character wins, you will be transported to the Beat the Boss Feature where you will have to defeat four characters, including the main boss himself, M. Bison. You’re awarded a higher multiplier for each level you complete, up to a maximum of x10. The game ends if you’re character loses. However, if you go all the way you have the chance to win the maximum jackpot of 7142x your stake.
Street Fight Wild Combo Feature
You will notice a wild symbol counter above your character on the left side of the screen. A point is added to this every time you land a winning combination with one of the high paying symbols.
Once you hit seven points, the wild combo feature is activated, which will randomly place wild symbols on the reels to help you create winning combinations.
Car Smash Bonus Game
This feature is unlocked when your characters health points reach zero. When this happens, you’ll be transported to a new screen where you take control of your character by using the control panel.
The aim is to wreck the car. If you succeed, you’ll win a cash prize between 5x and 10x your stake.
The main game is played like any other slot game; you first need to select your coin value which starts at £0.20 per spin, reaching up to a substantially maximum value of £700. From there you need to hit spin or set-up the auto-play function that can play up to 1000 spins for you, giving you time to sit back, relax and enjoy the action.
There are no pay lines in Street Fighter II online slot; instead, it works on a cluster pay system that pays out when a group of four or more touching symbols appear on the screen. The bigger the cluster, the bigger the pay-out. This is different to pay line games because you can create winning combinations anywhere on the screen!
