Ultimate Fighters Slots

Ultimate-FightersUltimate Fighters is a fighting themed slot machine, designed by Playtech and apparently being based on some kind of video game. Video games like Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat have been hugely popular in the past, though these days people don’t really play this kind of game like they used to. The slot here takes a bunch of fighters, both of Western and Eastern descent, and uses them for its symbols. The location seems to be somewhere in Asia, a good choice for a game about the world’s best fighters.

The interesting thing about Ultimate Fighters is that it has 9 reels, while looking like a standard 3×3 game though. It hosts a total of 8 paylines, which are arranged vertically, horizontally and diagonally. There are scatter symbols and bonus games inside, but the real prize is the $75,000 jackpot.

Features of Ultimate Fighters

There are two symbols in Ultimate Fighters that have some extra roles. One of them would be the scatter symbol, the other is a bonus symbol.

The scatter symbol’s ability allows it to trigger its cash prizes by being present in the game on 4 to 9 different symbols. The name comes from the fact that the symbols that form a combo can be scattered on the reels, so they don’t have to be on the same line. The scatter is the only symbol that can award prizes this way, and also the only one that can offer prizes for up to 9 symbols. The smallest prize given is worth 5x the bet and is awarded for four scattered Dragon Logos. The highest one is offered for nine scatters and is worth 1,000x.

Bonus Game

The Buddha symbol is the bonus game’s trigger. You need three Buddha icons on the same active line, forming a combination, in order for the bonus game to start up.

In this bonus game, your fighter has a match with another character, where you play a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors and the outcome determines how he does in the fight. It’s an interesting way to determine who wins in a bonus game.


Betting options and jackpots

The game gets a total of 8 paylines, allowing you to use up to 3 coins for each one. A total of 24 coins are part of the maximum bet, with the $5 maximum denomination taking the wager up to $120. The smallest denomination is $0.01 and you can reduce the number of lines or coins as you see fit, so the game is accessible to anyone, though prizes will be far from being as good.

The best prize offered by the game is worth 5,000x, or about 15,000 coins. With the denomination set to the maximum of $5, that means up to $75,000.

Design and symbols

One of the weakest parts about this particular game would be its design. The background image is not a problem, but the symbols that appear on its 9 reels use a design style that I for one am not fond of. Whether this is due to the fact that it’s an older slot machine or because of the developer’s choices, it doesn’t change the fact that it’s far from being an inviting game. The regular symbols are all composed of different fighter characters.

Symbols: Golden Buddha (bonus), Dragon (scatter), Raven (5,000x), Pai (1,000x), Shikona (500x), Tylee (250x), Spike (100x), Ninja Gaiden (80x), Buster (70x), Korea Kid (50x) and Old Teacher (30x).


Is It Worth Playing?

It’s a decent choice for someone that enjoyed the fighting video games of the 90s, but the design hasn’t kept up with the times and it’s far from being a highly entertaining slot machine anymore.

This Ultimate Fighters slot is offered by all online casinos with Playtech software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
