NetEnt’s Street Fighter 2: The World Warrior slot game has a growing popularity

Every online casino continues its surge in popularity, picking up from where they left off last year. And While many people are looking forward to enjoying their summer outdoors, slot faithful were looking forward to something entirely different. The highly anticipated NetEnt’s Street Fighter II: The World Warrior slot was released last month with a bang.

Betsson Group, NetEnt, and streaming community CasinoGrounds were able to bring players together from 19-25th May for an exclusive competition. This also means that players on these sites got to see the game first before others and got to determine how the game measured up against the original release in 1991.

CasinoGrounds hosted a streaming competition among three of the most massive streamers they have, including Twitch, YouTube, and anywhere possible where they could post it.

NetEnt takes us back those arcade times, with its new “slots meet videogame" Street Fighter II: The World Warrior. This release is a classic to many lovers of video games and a reinvention of the 1991 video game into a slot that has gotten the attention of many slot players.

NetEnt made efforts to make this new release just as interactive as its original counterpart, allowing players to pick which Street Fighter character to stand in for them on the reels. As soon as you choose your character, you are ready to fight your way into becoming a street champion.

Symbols and mechanics

The structure used in this game is a 5×5 reel, in addition to a cluster pay system. It employs an avalanche mechanic to make symbols disappear as soon as you achieve a winning combination. These symbols are substituted with other symbols that fall from the top. Executing a winning combination makes the avalanche mechanic repeat itself. New avalanches will continue until there is no remaining winning combination available, and a new spin begins.

When you pick your fighter, you then take to the streets to begin the battle. To reach the first four bosses, you need to win a single regular fight.
NetEnt endeavored to bring this game as close to its original by bringing back the classic characters, each with its weakness and strengths similar to a video game. Every one of the eight classic characters comes with his set of wild modifiers. You are advised to pick your warrior carefully, as the volatility and RTP differs for every character. And you will have no choice but to use him or her until you win or lose.

Each warrior has four high-value symbols: two victory variants and two defeat symbols for each fighter. When your warrior appears in a group of 16 or more, the worth of these symbols will be up to 30 times your stake.

Bonus features and free spins

The fight comes to an end as soon as your warrior runs out of health. When you are defeated, the car Smash Bonus gets activated, which could get you a win of up to 15 times your stake. On the other hand, when you win, the Beat the Boss Free Spins gets activated, and you can try to overcome four bosses with multipliers at hand.

If you beat all of them, you get to receive a bonus of 100 times your stake. In contrast, if you get defeated by a boss, you will go back to the same base game, or you will be given the option of fighting the same boss again with the Insert Coin Gamble feature.


Betsson group showed a smart move in securing what is believed to be highly sought after exclusive. With this, players on all Betsson brands got to enjoy a first-hand show of Street Fighter II before anyone else and got a feel of a blast from the past.
