An arcade classic

Street Fighter™ first broke into the video game scene back in 1991, and since then it’s earned its place as one of the best fighting games of all time. Countless other games have drawn inspiration from it, and many gamers still remember the fun of playing it in an old-school arcade. NetEnt’s online pokie version of the game preserves the retro charm of the original arcade hit, reusing the 8-bit-style graphics and the original group of eight fighters.

The game’s designers stayed loyal to the original feel of the game, even though nearly 30 years have passed since it was first designed. They worked carefully to create graphics, sound effects, and features that make the experience unforgettable. From the moment you choose your fighter to begin the game, you’ll feel transported back to your favourite old arcade hangout.

The slot is built on a 5-reel, 5-row setup that will be familiar to any pokie enthusiast. But it’s so much more than a regular pokie game, thanks to how the video game elements have been integrated. Players get to choose their fighter just like in the arcade original, from a cast of characters including Blanka, Ryu, Ken, E. Honda, Chun Li, Zangief, Guile, and Dhalsim. You can stick with the same player you used to always choose or try out someone new.

You’ll have a chance to meet the whole cast, because your fighter will face off against the other street fighters as the game progresses. This pokie has an added layer of excitement because it borrows the arcade game’s fight setup, keeping track of each player’s health score as the fight continues. The fighters’ success is based on what symbols land when you spin the reels.

NetEnt uses their own Cluster Pays™ format for you to create patterns with 4 or more symbols. The game also uses Avalanche™ reels, which means that winning combinations disappear and the remaining symbols cascade down into their place. This makes it possible for additional wins be awarded.
