Round one, fight! That’s right, the popular 90s arcade game, Street Fighter 2, is now available as a slot game at Gbets.co.za. Based on the original coin-op version released in 1991, this exciting slot entertains and enthralls, while giving you the chance to win some big bucks.
Everything you loved about the original arcade game translates to this fun slot game, including the 8 characters from the original game who each have a different modifier. Nearly every aspect of the original game is lovingly captured, including the individual move, catchphrases, travelling the world battling contenders and the soundtrack.
So, just like the arcade game, you can choose which player you want to do battle with, but with a betting twist. Once you’ve chosen your character, they will fly to a random part of the world to begin their first battle. Mirroring the original, each battle includes multiple spins and concludes when one of the fighters runs out of health.
The original arcade game’s character features and offers different rewards:
- Dhalsim – places 3 or 4 wilds in random positions on the grid
- Honda – places 3 wild symbols on the same reel
- Ryu – places 3 wild symbols on the same row
- Guile – places 2 vertical stacks of 2 wild symbols
- Zangief – places 2 horizontal stacks of 2 wild symbols
- Chun Li – places 2 or 7 wild symbols at random
- Blanka – places 1 or 5 wild symbols on the same reel
- Ken – places 1 or 5 wild symbols on the same row
Further, every character gets a Wild Gauge that is filled by 1 point for each high pay symbol in a winning cluster. When there are 7 points on the Wild Gauge, and no more winners on screen , the above modifiers are activated, while wilds can substitute for any other pay symbol as usual.
Symbols and Rewards:
The game is played on a 5x5 grid with 25 symbols tumbling into place upon each spin. You’ll get a payout when four or more matching symbols connect either horizontally or vertically, and this will also trigger the Avalanche feature, where new symbols appear to replace the winning clusters. And so long as these winning clusters appear, Avalanche will continue to payout.
The high-paying symbols display the character’s images and will change based on who the fighter is, while the low-paying symbols simply appear as traditional card symbols royals in an old arcade game font. As soon as high-paying symbols land, the chosen fighter will inflict damage to their opponent until the health bar of one of the fighters is reduced to zero. The Car Smash bonus game is launched if a player is defeated, while the Beat the Boss game is triggered if they win. For the latter, players can choose to either manually smash a car or hit the “Quick Finish” button to win from 5 to 15 times their bet.
Afterwards, players must decide whether to stick with the same character or choose a different one for a new battle. Should you win the battle, you’ll be awarded Beat the Boss Free Spins where boss levels come with a win multiplier. You don’t get a set number of free spins; rather, the bonus game continues until someone is defeated. Should you “Beat the boss”, you’ll move to the next level, and there are four bosses to beat:
- Balrog (x2 multiplier)
- Vega (x3 multiplier)
- Sagat (x5 multiplier)
- Bison (x10 multiplier)
If you beat all these opponents, you’ll be handsomely rewarded with an additional 100 times your stake up for grabs for remaining undefeated throughout the tournament.
