Players who grew up playing arcades will understand what it means to stay playing your favourite game for hours, with no food or water. Action junkies will be pleased to know that the famous arcades from the past can now be found among video slots, and are just as exciting as the original titles. See what is happening with your childhood heroes and this time you will not only lose coins, you can also win a lot.
Capcom’s most sold game in the 1990s is definitely Street Fighter II. NetEnt decided to make it into a video slot that offers almost the same gaming experience. First, the visuals are entirely the same, while all the heroes are there and you can pick them to attack the enemies and beat the boss. The 2020 release features five reels, five rows and benefits from cluster pays. All of the characters will have different Wild Combo features. The Wild Combo feature is triggered when you fill the Wild Gauge with every win from high-paying icons.
If you defeat your current opponent, you will advance to the Beat the Boss Free Spins feature, where four levels and four opponents are waiting for you. Beat Balrog, Vega, Sagat, and reach the final level with M. Bison, with the Level Multiplier going up to 10x. If you lose the opening battle, you will play the Car Smash Bonus, where you can win cash prizes up to 15x the bet. You will actually control your character in this bonus and smash the famous car from the Bonus stage in the original arcade game.
This is a pure classic, developed back in 1978, is one of the first shooting games in history. In 2016, Playtech used this worldwide phenomenon as the theme for the Space Invaders video slot, which offers 5 reels and benefits from 10 paylines, which pay both ways. Players need to defend planet Earth from the attack of Aliens. Expect Flying Saucers, Monsters, Planets and Aliens on the reels. Use the Cannon to blast them off the reels and to win big.
If the Cannon stops somewhere under reel 2 or 4, it can shoot and blast away low-paying icons to turn them into Wilds. This is the Invaders Turn Wild feature and can be extremely handy. The UFO will be hovering over the reels, and your main task will be to land the UFO and the Cannon on the same reel. Once this happens, the UFO Wild feature will be triggered and you will shoot the UFO with the Cannon, which will result with up to 9 added Wilds on the reels.
Another video slot inspired by Space Invaders is Space Arcade, which comes from Nolimit City’s creative kitchen. This retro-looking video slot offers some modern additional features players can benefit from. This intergalactic adventure offers three reels, three rows and benefits from 9 fixed paylines. Symbols on the reels are made from cubes, so the graphics are simple but crisp.
Two Bonus features are waiting for you in the 2016 release. Land a Wild on the reels and it can turn into a Winged Wild, which will fly around the reels, while you get free respins. Respins will continue until the Winged Wild remains on the reels. Increasing win multipliers are also on the offer with every winning spin increasing them by 1x. The max win multiplier can be 6x. After a non-winning spin, the win multiplier is reset. Only if the Winged Wild feature is active, the win multiplier does not reset after a non-winning spin.
Pac-Man was a popular arcade back in the days and is still extremely popular. Bandai Namco Entertainment and Ainsworth joined forces back in 2018 to develop Pac-Man Wild Edition, a 5-reel video slot with plenty of extra features. The video slot version of Pac-Man boasts retro graphics and a fitting soundtrack. It offers four different jackpots, Wild Power Pellet, Free Games, Bonus feature and Extra Chance feature. The last one offers not only four jackpots, but also win multipliers going up to 50x.
Apart from 4 regular reels, there is the fifth reel on the top of the grid, where you can land Patterns, Key Scatters and Wilds. Land a Wild on the extra row and you will turn all symbols on the corresponding reel into Wilds for that particular spin. Three Key Scatters on the extra row will trigger the Bonus feature. Here, you will get an additional reel, where you can land Extra Chance and win multipliers up to 15x. If you land Extra Chance, you will trigger the Extra Chance feature, where win multipliers of up to 50x are waiting, as well as four different jackpots you can win. The base game is played on 25 paylines, while in the Free Games feature 75 paylines are waiting for you.
A neat combination of a fruit machine, arcade, and a modern video slot is what you will find in Arcader, a 5-reel, 15-payline video slot, brought to you by the good people of Play’n Go. The 2014 release is not themed after any particular arcade, but you will feel as if you are playing Space Invaders or a similar game, thanks to the retro visuals and a fitting soundtrack. Symbols on the reels include Bars, Lucky Sevens, Bells, and five types of Fruit. At the same time, you also have Wild, Expander, Bonus Scatter and the Mystery Scatter.
Land an Expander on a reel, and it will expand the reel in question with the icon that will produce the best possible payout for that particular spin. To trigger the Bonus Game, you need three or more Bonus Scatters on the reels. More Bonus Scatters secure bigger win multipliers, up to 9x, while the number of Free Games is 9. During the feature, you can expect Sticky Wilds in the three central reels. Once they appear, they will stay there until the feature is over. Finally, there is the Mystery Scatter, which triggers the Mystery Game. Pick from tiles with a question mark on it and collect coin wins until you hit the Blank field, or until you collect all wins from the tiles.
