Buffalo Blitz, by Playtech, has been around since 2016 but it is still one of the most popular played slots in the casino.
This stubborn bison can play hard to get when it comes to regular wins, but when it does hit, it can hit big, and that’s what draws players in.
Fancy a trip to the wild American grasslands? Well Buffalo Blitz can take you to the prairies with snow-topped mountains and of course, the star of the show, the Buffalo.
Buffalo Blitz comes in a six-reel, four-row slot format offering 4,096 ways to win. To land a winner, you need two or more matching animal symbols, or three or more Royals on adjacent reels from the leftmost reel.
In keeping with the theme, symbols are made up of bears, raccoons, elks, big cats and the buffalo himself who is the most valuable symbol. The wild symbol is the diamond.
Buffalo Blitz has just one bonus feature, which, in truth, can be tricky to get. But, and it’s a big but, if you manage to trigger it, it can be explosive.
To trigger the bonus, you need to land at least three of the ‘Free Games’ symbols. As is usually the case, the more symbols, the more free games. But Buffalo Blitz has one of, if not the, highest potential free spin opportunities of any slot.
Three ‘Free Games’ symbols will get you eight spins, four gives 15 spins, five symbols will get you 25 free spins and six symbols lands you an incredible 100 spins.
Not only that, but Buffalo Blitz can reward you with retriggers too. Land just two symbols and you’ll get another five free spins. Land three, four, five or six ‘Free Games’ gives you a full retrigger meaning you can get another 8, 15, 25 or 100 spins again.
There’s no limit to how many times you can retrigger the feature meaning unlimited free spins.
What’s more, during the free spins, look out for the diamond wilds which randomly boost pay outs with 2x, 3x and even 5x multipliers as you spin.
You could say Buffalo Blitz is a bit of a one-trick pony. Any potential to win big is based purely on whether you trigger the bonus or not. But if true, that pony is a prize thoroughbred.
The bonus has everything you could want and more. Opportunities to win crazy amounts of free spins, re-triggers and up to 5x multipliers too.
Yes, the design of the game is rather basic and the RTP is a little lower than you’d hope for at 95.96%, but if you like your slots wild and exciting then Buffalo Blitz can be worth the ride.
