Buffalo Blitz Slot
Playtech releases plenty of similar animal-themed slot games, but this one has reigned supreme for half a decade. They followed up on the action with their sequel title Buffalo Blitz 2 in recent years, but the original still holds plenty of appeal. Once we start running through the math model and the bonus features, you will soon start to see why. Buffalo Blitz comes with high volatility, a 95.96% return to player rate and 4,096 different ways to create winning combos on the larger than usual 6 x 4 reel set. The only slightly disappointing aspect to Buffalo Blitz is the narrow betting range that permits stakes from $0.40 a spin to $80, but if your bet level usually falls within those values, you may just find your new favourite title when you load up the reels. The traditional playing card symbols A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 are the low value symbols, they can pay a max of 150 coins. Each of the premium symbols is a different wild animal including cougars, racoons, moose, brown bears and, of course, buffalos. The buffalo symbols are not only the top paying symbols with the ability to pay up to 300 coins for a 6 of a kind combination, they are also stacked symbols. Every time a buffalo hits any of the 6 reels, it will expand to cover the entire reel.
Buffalo Blitz Bonus Features
Both the wild symbols and the scatter symbols have the potential to be incredibly rewarding in Buffalo Blitz, even though neither of them acts as paying symbols. The diamond symbol is the wild, it can appear on reels 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, it can substitute for all symbols bar the scatter. During the free spins bonus feature, the wild symbol can bring 2x, 3x or 5x multipliers. If you are really lucky, you can find more than 1 multiplying wild symbol in a winning combination. With that in mind, the free spins bonus feature is always a pleasure to trigger. 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will award 8, 15, 25 or 100 free games respectively. The free spins feature is all too easy to retrigger, just catching 2 scatter symbols as you spin for free will award 5 more free spins!
