Buffalo Blitz Slots - Playtech
ABOUT BUFFALO BLITZ SLOTS
While Playtech’s release delivers a lovely looking game with a somewhat unique theme entering about the plains of the Wild West and the buffalos that roam it freely, the gameplay has not been as kind as the looks. Though the game offers six reels and whopping 4096 paylines, it offers a low payout in return, even when playing on the highest coin values.
The main game will be rather dull, as there seem to be plenty of dead spins which will net you no wins, despite the game boasting that you can match up a winning combination so long as the icons follow each other left to right. The saving grace is its special, but even that does not quite pull it up.
HOW TO PLAY
The game offers four icons on each of its six reels, and allows you to start off by taking a pick between a coin value which goes as low as $0.01 all the way up to $5. The game offers a range of symbols, from the standard 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, and some unique icons for the higher paying symbols, such as bear, moose, raccoon and lynx, with a golden-haired buffalo, the game’s namesake, being the highest paying icon, and comeing stacked on all reels. The slot also features a diamond as Wild, which can replace any other icon on the reels.
Buffalo Blitz allows you to use the auto play feature to spin rather than pressing the button yourself over and over, from 10 to 99 spins. It also features a turbo mode, which still feels a bit drawn out despite the name, as you still have to wait through a few spins before it reveals the icons.
Despite the somewhat bland main game, the special features of the slot help it somewhat rise up above that issue. The slot offers you a chance at Bonus Rounds, Scatters and Wilds, giving you a range of options.
The Bonus Round is triggered by landing between three to six Scatter icons, represented by a blue board with FREE GAMES written on it. Depending on how many you get, you can win from 8 to 100 free games, and the slot allows you to keep getting more bonus rounds if you keep landing more Scatters.
The game’s Scatter seems to only serve the function of triggering the Bonus Rounds, as according to the game’s own paytable, it does not offer any value of its own. Considering the value the Bonus Round can bring, however, we feel that’s not a big issue.
The best way to earn big and get yourself the Jackpot in the game is to get six Golden Buffalos in a row. While they do come stacked, the odds of such a big win are highly unlikely, and you’d require exceptional luck to get it.
BUFFALO BLITZ ON MOBILE
The slot’s interface and gameplay remains the same on the mobile version of the game, though small concessions have been made to make sure the players on tablets and phones can play well enough.
While hardly the perfect experience, Buffalo Blitz will deliver the same performance as it does on the desktop, so you are well off playing it on either device.
