Free Street Fighter II Slots Machine
Street Fighter II is a game that first appeared in 1991 and is said to be the game that started the boom in fighting games. It was first released in the arcades but would quickly migrate to the Super Nintendo home console and would become one of the most popular games of all time. The Street Fighter 2 slot has the same familiar early console look and you’ll start by picking one of five characters – Ken, Ryu, Sagat, Chunli or Guile. This character will now appear to the left of the reels throughout and land the right combination of symbols on the reels and you’ll end up street fighting yourself!
How to Win on Street Fighter 2
Let’s start with the highlight of the slot – the Street Fighter feature. Having selected your character at the start of the game, you’ll now want this character to appear on reel two alongside Bison (the enemy of the game) on reel 4. Both reels 2 and 4 will now expand to show the characters in full, each of these reels now completely wild. Now reels 1, 3 and 5 will spin and you’ll find four new symbols on reels 1 and 5 – Fists, Boots, a combination of Fists and Boots and a Star which signifies the signature move for each of the characters. When these new symbols appear on reel 1, the action will be performed by your chosen fighter, while the symbols on reel 5 will see the action performed by Bison. Each of the two fighters will have a life meter and these will decrease as they land hits on each other, the round over when one of the two fighters is defeated. You’ll win prizes for every hit landed as well as an additional prize if your fighter is the victor.
Of course, fighting isn’t the only way you’ll win on this slot. A bladed gauntlet alongside a shield is the highest paying symbol at the game, worth a generous 5,000 coins for the maximum five in a row, while a pair of boxing gloves pays 3,000 coins. A necklace containing 3 skulls is next at 1,000 coins while spiked bracelets pay 500 coins. The symbols are completed by the playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
Every symbol on the slot pays out when you land three or more consecutive symbols from left to right on a pay line, the only exceptions being the highest paying gauntlet and shield and the boxing gloves which will pay out for just two in a row additionally.
The final symbol on the reels is the logo of the game which acts as the scatter. When you land 2, 3, 4 or 5 anywhere on the reels, you’ll win 1x, 5x, 20x or 100x your total stake.
Design and Setup
If you were approaching this game today, you might think that the look of this real money slot game is a little outdated. However, this is a very good representation of the original Street Fighter II, looking exactly as the game did. The two fighters are lined up either side of the reels throughout the game, ready for action with their slightly jerky early video game movements. On the reels the symbols are well drawn, although the playing card letters and numbers do dominate a little at times. The most eye catching symbol is the title one, which animates to show a number of characters from the game when forming part of a win line. The clicking of the reels is joined by the occasional Asian style sound when wins come along.
Take away the Streetfighter theme and the impressive bonus round and you’ll find yourself playing a standard 5 reel slot. This game has a total of 25 win lines which are set as the default amount, although you can opt to play any number between 1 and 25. You can choose a coin value of anything between just 1c and $20 which you’ll multiply by the number of lines to give you a total stake for each spin. The game does have an auto play option, although you’ll have to manually set it by clicking the up and down buttons.
For fans of the Streetfighter series, this game might just be ideal. You have an enjoyable slot game which explodes into life when the bonus feature is landed. Whether or not the game will have a long lasting appeal is open to question, as this is the only real feature and the lack of a free spins bonus game is noticeable. However, there is enough to keep you entertained in the short term, making this ideal for a short, sharp slot session!
