We love to recall the past. We take photographs to keep them for future reminiscing. We write on diaries to remember extraordinary experiences. And we save souvenirs to hold on to sweet memories. Nostalgia – a power that keeps the dead alive. It’s one of the reasons why Disney never runs out of businesses. The Disney Princesses (Ariel, Cinderella, Jasmine, etc.) that we have watched before, we still continue to watch right now for they bring us back to our childhood, the stage when we feel so secured and empowered. Nostalgia helps us to live in the present and to continue living in the future by bringing back our past.
And Disney is not the only one who makes use of nostalgia to catch a number of audiences, the computer world also does so. Just take for example, Mario and Luigi. Adult players never get tired of cracking that brick, eating that mushroom, stepping on that enemy, and chasing that star until now. It is a classic game that lives from one generation to the next. Also, there is the street fighter that once was only an arcade game. And bringing back that arcade game in the present is Cryptologic, with its newly released online casino game exactly named after it.
Street fighter is a 5-reel, 25-payline video slot game with 36 winning combinations. The maximum number of coins per pay line is 1, which means the maximum number of coins per spin is 25, with the coin value ranging from $0.01 to $20. Thus, the minimum amount the player can bet per game is $0.01 and the maximum amount is $500, depending on the number of pay lines the player wishes to activate.
The graphics and animations of the game are very much like that of the arcade game, so any gamer playing the classic game since 1987 will be very familiar of the characters. The player has to choose among Ken, Ryu, Sagat, Chun Li or Guile. The chosen character will be put on the reels with Bison. It also becomes the game’s wild and bonus symbols. The wild symbol is able to replace any symbol, and appears on reels 2 and 4 only. The slots game turn to the original arcade game when the player hits the wild symbol on reel 2 and Bison on reel 4. The game becomes a fight scene between the characters, and the Free Spins feature doesn’t end until one character has been defeated. When the player’s chosen character wins, he or she is awarded with bonus prizes. All of the symbols on reels 2 and 4 during this round become a wild symbol, which means more chances of winning. The top-paying symbol is the Shield. Getting 5 Shield symbols awards the top jackpot prize of 5,000 coins! The second jackpot of 3,000 coins is awarded by getting 5 Gloves symbols.
So what are you waiting for? If you’re a Street Fighter fan since childhood, then this is your chance to play the game in a whole new different level!
