CasinoDaddy Bison Rising Megaways™ Build a Bonus Q&A 

To celebrate the launch of Bison Rising Megaways Build a Bonus, a new slot by Blueprint Gaming that's releasing on April 13th, we've met with Charlie Jacka, Head of Product at Blueprint Gaming, and asked him a few questions about the new game.

Before we move on with out interview, here's a little about the new game!

Bison Rising Megaways™ Build a Bonus

Bison Rising Megaways Build A Bonus is a new casino slot from Blueprint Gaming where you once again can meet large herds of bison. In the fall of 2022, they released their Bison Rising Megways, where a lovely set of mystery symbols, wild symbols, multipliers, and free spins could generate wins of up to a massive 50,000X the bet. This time they build on this concept, introducing a new mechanic, namely the Build A Bonus. A bonus buy option that allows players to calibrate their bonus buy according to their preferences and budget.

Yes, these mighty beasts are certainly popular in the slots world, where we recently covered distinguishing facts between a bison and a buffalo in the slot Wild Bison Charge. The three H's were the key to this distinguishing them, and this time the Build A Bonus seems to be the key to an enhanced gaming experience. It is now time to find out what stats the game comes loaded with.

The Q&A

Hello and thank you for participating in this interview for your upcoming release of the game Bison Rising Megaways™ Build a Bonus. Please tell us a little about you and Blueprint Gaming! 

I’m the Head of Product at Blueprint Gaming, overseeing the entire game development journey. It’s a role that comes with a lot of responsibility but one that I thoroughly enjoy, playing my part in the flow of quality content we produce. 

Blueprint has long been developing games that deliver precisely what players want - engaging and innovative mechanics and features within entertaining themes or under popular IPs. As players at heart, our game design is about ensuring titles offer the right blend of these key gameplay factors. This is where Bison Rising Megaways Build a Bonus comes from and highlights exactly that kind of design ethos. 

1. Describe Bison Rising Megaways™ Build a Bonus in three words! 

Bonus Buy Bonanza! 

2. How is Bison Rising Megaways™ Build A Bonus different from all other games? 

Quite simply, it gives players the freedom to design their own bonus rounds from scratch. They can now configure elements like the number of free spins, Megaways™ and the level of multiplier they start on. 

It’s designed to appeal to those players that prefer to skip base games and go straight into the bonus round – it’s never been done before so it’s a mechanic that we’re very excited about. Obviously, Bison Rising Megaways has been an extremely popular title for us globally for some time and has a fantastic bonus round, so it felt like the perfect game to introduce this new mechanic to. 

3. What inspired Bison Rising Megaways™ Build a Bonus? 

Ever since bonus buys became an option, a huge audience has grown that enjoys them and we recognised that there was a gap in the market. Build a Bonus offer those players more freedom and control in how they play. Historically, players have been restricted to fixed bonus buy amounts with a set amount of spins, but here, we’ve lifted those limits and allowed players to enjoy their sessions with more agency. While the top end has been increased, the bottom end has too, allowing smaller stake play, so we’ve really put the power in the hands of as wide a selection of players as possible. 

4. What made you choose this theme? 

Bison Rising is one of our strongest games internationally and one of the most recognisable Megaways™ games we have ever produced, so it offers that familiarity that players will be comfortable with while exploring a brand-new game-changing mechanic like Build a Bonus. The original still has a large following of loyal players and this new addition freshens up the experience for them while also offering a new level of engagement for those that may not have played it before. 

5. The game comes with a "Build A Bonus" feature. Can you tell us more about it? 

It offers the ability to tailor the free spins or bonus round to exactly suit different play styles. 

The Build a Bonus stake ranges from 52x to 7,378x, and this offers the ultimate flexibility for those that like to be in control of their spend during free spins and bonus buys. Multipliers, free spins and the number of Megaways™ are selectable. 

6. What can players expect when they visit this game? 

It’s the Bison Rising Megaways that players know and love but it has the industry first of allowing a completely bespoke bonus round, should they choose to. The maths model has been tweaked to accommodate the new options and will give a different feel and experience too. 

Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions. Finally, do you have anything you would like to say to our readers? 

We’re always looking to bring new experiences to players and deliver industry-leading mechanics, features and themes and in Build a Bonus, we’ve done just that. We’ll be adding this to more of our hit games to make sure that those loyal to our many popular game families are able to get a taste of the flexibility Build a Bonus brings – we’ll also be bringing it to some of our new titles as well. We can’t reveal what those games are just yet but we’ll announce more very soon!
