Street Fighter II the online slot fashioned after "the video game by the same name is one slot that many think should have stayed in the arcade world. Amaya’s Internet slot version of the iconic video game does not do its predecessor justice, especially in regards to graphics, with the characters rendered in the slot looking like they are mere sketches on paper. Nonetheless, it remains available at online casinos offering the Amaya Gaming software.
Amaya really tried to make this game as interactive as the original, going as far as giving players the choice of which Street Fighter character will represent them on the reels. Ryu, Ken, Sagat, Guile, and Chun Li are all available in a drop down box located at the top of the reels. Your chosen character will be the wild symbol all throughout your session, so choose wisely.
Other regular symbols include the Mask and a Sharp Metal Claw, Throwing Stars, Skull Necklaces, Boxing Gloves, and your usual poker card symbols.
The Street Fighter II Logo is the scatter, and you only need 2 or more of them to get a payout.
You can trigger the standard jackpot offered in Street Fighter II the slot when you hit 5 Masks and/ Sharp Metal Claws on an active payline.
The Street Fighter Bonus will trigger when your chosen wild symbol appears on reel 2 and Bison appears on reel 4 at the same time. Reels 2 and 4 will expand to show your chosen Street Fighter and Bison as they prepare for battle. All symbols on reels 2 and 4 will be substituted, apart from the scattered Logo icon. Reels 1, 3, and 5 will re-spin, and reels 1 and 5 will then contain Boots (character will kick), Fists (character will punch), Fists & Boots (character will punch and kick), Stars (character will perform his signature move), or No Icons (character will perform no action).
The action symbols on reel 1 will be performed by your Fighter, while the actions on reel 5 will be performed by Bison. There is a life meter for each Fighter, and each action inflicts damage on the other, decreasing the life meter of that fighter. Actions performed by your Fighter will win you credit prizes which are multiplied by your total stake. Re-spins will continue until either the player's selected Fighter or Bison is defeated.
Activate all 25 paylines in the Street Fighter II slot for just 0.25 or bet as high as 500.00 (max bet with all lines wagered). This slot incorporates all betting fields, as to cater to the wide variety of Street Fighter fans.
Living up to such a brand as Street Fighter would be tough for any slit designer, but Amaya could have done better. If this was their best shot, it still comes out short of most Street Fighter fans' expectations. Nonetheless, it is considered to be a "popular slot," perhaps for reasons other than theme or graphics. Other more successful online slots crafted from video games include Microgaming’s Hitman and the Lara Croft Tomb Raider slot series, as well as Cryptologic’s Call of Duty series of online slot games.
