Slots Review – Street Fighter IV

Software Platform : Cryptologic

Introduction

Street Fighter IV was one of a series of arcade games that were hugely popular among gaming enthusiasts. This online slot game from Cryptologic is based around the arcade game and should appeal to fans. It starts with an action packed animated sequence that introduces all of the characters.

The symbols in this slot game are largely based around the theme. There is the Yin Yang symbol, the Street Fighter IV logo and various weapons and accessories used by characters in the game. There are also playing card symbols with the values of nine through to the ace.

Pay Lines and Betting Options

The Street Fighter IV slot game features five reels and has a couple of options that allow you to change how much you bet on each spin. You can decided how many active pay lines you play (up to 25) and also how much you bet per line.

Wild Symbol

The wild symbol at Street Fighter IV is the Yin Yang symbol. It appears only on reels 2 and 4 and can substitute for all other symbols (but not the scatter) to form winning combinations.

Scatters, Free Spins and Bonus Rounds

The free spins bonus round at the Street Fighter IV online slot is particularly appealing to fans of the original arcade game. It is triggered when three or more of the scatter symbols – the Street Fighter IV logo – appear anywhere in view. You are first instantly awarded a cash prize, depending on the number of scatters in view, and then the bonus game starts.

You firstly have to select one of the fighting characters from the game from a choice of Ken, Rye, Abel or Li-Chun. You then have to choose which of their attack moves they will perform during a fight with the enemy. Your character then goes onto fight a randomly assigned enemy. If your character is successful then you win additional bonuses such as a higher amount of free spins, multipliers or extra wild symbols during the free games. If your character loses, you still get 10 free spins.

Jackpots

The fixed jackpot at the Street Fighter IV slot game is 5,000 times your line bet. It can be won if you spin five of the hat symbol on an active pay line. The lack of a progressive jackpot here is a slight disappointment but Street Fighter IV is still a great fun online slot to play.
