If you were a fan of Playtech’s original release of the game than you are definitely going to enjoy the upgraded sequel. The game is called Buffalo Blitz II and has 6 reels, 4 rows, and 4,096-14,400 possible winning ways. If that does not sound impressive enough yet, just wait until you trigger one of the amazing features provided, the payouts will definitely tickle your fancy.
As the original game did amazing and appealed to a lot of players out there, the provider decided to once again take us on a journey through the North American prairies. As a protected breed, the buffalos have become one of the trademarks of America and although they are often used as a theme in the slot industry, the provider still managed to make one of the better releases out there.
In the background is, of course, the green field with the sun setting from the horizon. The sky is a pretty purple and there are also some mountains not too far in the back. The picture might be relaxing but the soundtrack not so much. It is actually quite tense and mysterious which contributes to the thrill of playing a slot game and waiting for that big win.
The symbols are quite interesting and well designed. The lower-paid ones include our regular colorful royals while the higher paid ones appear as different animals from the prairie. They include bears, mousses, raccoons, and cheetahs. The game also has a wild symbol that appears as a diamond, a scatter symbol that appears as a logo, and a special symbol represented by a buffalo that awards some amazing prizes and can appear stacked on the reels.
This is a highly volatile game which means that anything can be expected. The wins will definitely satisfy and can go up to 10,000 times the stake. The players who like to bet big will not be impressed with the betting range as it could have been a bit wider. The minimum bet is set at 0,20 and the maximum at just 10 coins per spin. The game has a 95,96% RTP which is around the average for most games.
When it comes to the features of the game, the provider kept it quite simple. There are not that many of them, but they sure do help out a lot. As already mentioned the game has a wild symbol that replaces all other symbols of the game except the scatter symbol. It can appear on all reels except for the first one. But that is not all, the wild can trigger the Multiplier Wild feature and award you with 2x, 3x, or 5x the stake.
Lastly, the game offers us a Ways Boost Free Games feature that is triggered when the player lands 3, 4, 5, or 6 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. According to the number of triggering symbols, the player is awarded with 8, 15, 25, or 100 free spins. The game area expands to let you play with 14, 400 paylines. The feature can be re-triggered the same way as initially, only this time you get rewarded even for landing 2 scatter symbols. This will get you an additional 5 free spins which are quite surprising. The wilds can carry multipliers up to 5x and they land quite often. If more than one is part of a win, their multipliers are added to award an amazing win.
The release is everything you would expect an updated version to be. The features are definitely stealing the show, especially the free spins. The setting might be peaceful, but you should actually prepare for an unpredictable and thrilling ride. The payouts should satisfy although they could be unimaginable if the betting range were to be a bit wider.
