Buffalo Blitz is a beautifully designed game and its theme is truly brought to life on the reels. The reels are set in a simple gold frame and behind them you can see the grassy plains underneath a slightly stormy looking sky with some snow-capped mountains in the distance. An exciting soundtrack that helps to set the atmosphere accompanies the gameplay and there are some enjoyable animations whenever a win lands on the reels.
The theme extends to many of the slot’s symbols. The regular symbols include animals such as the buffalo, the lynx, the raccoon, the moose and the bear (as well as the royals 9, 10, J, Q, K and A). The wild symbol is a sparkling blue diamond while the scatter symbol simply says ‘Free Games’ on it.
Buffalo Blitz is not a bonus packed slot, but the game does have a number of smaller features that both make it enjoyable and can help players win more. For instance, the buffalo symbol, which is the highest value regular symbol, can land stacked on all the reels, which makes it a bit easier to land high value payouts.
The main bonus feature is the free games round, which is triggered by landing at least three of the scatter symbols anywhere in view on the reels. Landing three, four, five or six scatter symbols will award 8, 15, 25 or 100 free games respectively. Better yet, during the free games, landing a further two, three, four, five or six scatter symbols will award an additional 5, 8, 15, 25 or 100 free games, and this way more free games can be triggered infinitely.
However, the best part of the free games is the wild symbol. Whenever the wild symbol is part of a winning combination, it will award a random multiplier of x2, x3 or x5. Furthermore, if more than one wild symbol is part of a combination, then the multipliers are added together. The wild symbol can land on reels two to six, which means that theoretically there could be five of them in a single win, which would result in a massive x25 multiplier and a huge payout.
Buffalo Blitz is a low volatility slot and it has an RTP of 95.96%, which is highly respectable. In general, low volatility slots payout small amounts very regularly, so the game is ideal for players hoping to keep their bankrolls topped up through regular small wins.
The game has a top standard payout of 300x that is won by landing six buffalo symbols along a payline. The lynx and the racoon can both payout up to 250x, while the bear and the moose can both payout up to 200x. A and K can payout up to 150x, Q and J can payout up to 120x, and 10 and 9 can payout up to 100x.
How to Play
Buffalo Blitz takes very little time to learn how to play. Before spinning the reels, all players have to do is adjust the coin value to set the total bet per spin. Players will always be betting 40 times the coin value. All that is left to do is click on the ‘Spin’ button to set the reels in motion. There is also auto play functionality that can be used to set up to 99 spins in motion, as well as controls to turn the sound effects and music on and off.
