An unusual theme, this is centred around the North American Buffalo, or bison to the rest of the world. Buffalo Spirit by WMS Gaming is a five reel slot with thirty paylines available. The creamy gold reels are set on a dusky blue background with a few rocky outcrops, reminiscent of the buffalo’s native habitat.
In keeping with the theme, the symbols feature flora and fauna from this environment as well. Symbols include a yellowish desert plant, cactus, venomous snake, lizard, an eagle, an owl and a fox. There are lower values symbols in the mix as well and these are simply represented by playing card suits, clubs, hearts, spades and diamonds. There are some interesting bonus symbols as well. There are two different buffalo symbols that are both wild and a moon rising from behind a rocky cliff face is the scatter. All of these come into play later in the game.
As players get ready to dive into this interesting game there are a few small details to take note of. Minimum and maximum coins bets are from 0.01 to 30 coins per line. There is a decent jackpot but players should note that it is not a progressive one. The higher the stake player’s place on each spin, the higher the payout from the jackpot will become. There is a pay table attached to the slot that contains more details on this. There is also a very decent return to player percentage with it sitting at 95% making this a very viable gaming option.
There are some very decent bonuses on this game. Firstly there are the free spins. To activate this part of the gameplay, players need to land a minimum of three of the rising moon scatter symbols on any of the reels. Three scatters wins ten spins, four acquires twenty and five scatters offers up forty spins. All of the wins that are made during this section of the game will be doubled. There is also a possibility for players to re-trigger this free spins feature simply by landing more of the scatter symbols on the reels. The first two reels also hold extra symbols that match and these should also aid in increasing the chance of winning.
The second bonus is the replicating wild feature. One of the buffalo wild symbols only appears on the third reel and landing it will activate this feature. Little orbs will be fired around the reels and these change the other symbols into matching ones. This of course creates matches and therefore provides the player with guaranteed wins. In addition, this feature can also turn up in the middle of free spins. This game feature also occurs on a regular basis with good wins coming from it thus enticing players in to join the game.
