This release falls into the category of unusual ones, but that does not make it any less good. The provider Pragmatic Play took inspiration from buffalos, just like the name Buffalo King says it. It is a 6 reel slot, with 4 rows and 4,096 ways for the player to land a winning combination. Players should expect some great features followed by even better payouts.
This kind of theme is nothing new to the slot industry, but it is still interesting in its own way. Buffalos are closely tied to America and they are a special protected breed there. There are many games out there with similar themes and also designers following the same patterns. Something players are used to is hard to make interesting all over again.
The design of the game is very simple with fields and cliffs in the background. The sun is setting making the picture have an orange tint to it and look very beautiful. The scenery changes just a bit for the free spins round since the day has switched to night, changing the colors to dark blue and purple.
The soundtrack is calming music accompanied by a few banjo sound effects. It is fitted for the theme and contributes to the countryside feel of the game. The symbols are pretty interesting as well. They include the regular royals with a fun design as the low-value symbols than there are wolves, eagles, mooses, cougars, and buffalos as the highest paying symbols. A cliff serves as the wild symbol and a gold coin with a buffalo as the scatter.
What is going to be liked the most by players are the payouts. Players can win up to 96,750 times the stake in a single spin. The minimum a player can bet is 0,40 and the maximum is 60 coins per spin. It is a high volatility game, so even though the payouts are impressive, the game can also turn on the player, so be careful. The 96,06% RTP is set at a regular level, just like by most games.
The features of the game are what keep it interesting and this game has a few good ones. There are not so many, but the features are great. They are fun to watch as they are played out and the player can benefit a great deal from them. Starting from the wild symbol that is here just to replace other symbols, since it cannot land on the first reel it is not able to make wins on its own.
The free spins round is where all the fun and money lays. To trigger it, the player needs to land 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. They are then awarded 8, 15, 25 or an impressive 100 free spins. If that does not sound good enough, wilds appear during the feature with random multipliers. The winning combinations with the wild are multiplied by x2, x3 or x5. If there is more than one wild symbol, their multipliers get combined, which can cause for the huge top win to happen.
The design may be simple, but that was definitely not the main focus of the providers. They made the free spins the center of attention here. Thanks to them, the game can pay huge amounts of money, which is what players want to hear. It is a high volatility game, so the surprises never stop and the player can never know which way the game will take them. It is definitely worth trying out.
