Cool Buck at a glance

With Cool Buck, Microgaming is going back to its roots. This traditional casino slot follows the classic 5-reel 9-line format, but beneath its retro design lies a few exciting new innovations that are sure to attract new and old players alike. Cool Buck is a refresh of an existing slot, and according to Microgaming, is built on an all-new game engine to help it feel extremely fresh to players that are already familiar with the previous version..

Cool Buck gameplay and features

Veteran slot players will find Cool Buck’s gameplay extremely intuitive and familiar. Premium symbols like BARs, dollar signs and cash stacks are instantly recognisable to most players, and the scatters and wilds are clearly labelled so you know exactly what’s going on from your first spin. The slot boasts a range of traditional features including stacked wilds and free spins triggered by 3 or more scatters. But, it’s the free spin collection feature that really makes CoolBuck stand out from other retro slots. As you play, purple star symbols will appear randomly beside the symbols on the reels. Every star you land adds to your free spins counter. When you hit three or more scatters, that is the number of free spins you will receive. To make things even more exciting, if your free spins counter reaches 30, the bonus will automatically trigger and you’ll be taken straight into your free games. This helps to reduce the variance of the slot, something that will make it very appealing to more cautious players. The bonus itself is very simple, and just provides basic free spins with a 2x multiplier.

Cool Buck does a good job of blending the old with the new, but ultimately, it doesn’t break the mold. The result is a decently entertaining slot that’s well worth checking out, but I’d be shocked if it became a long-term favourite for many players. Good luck if you’re going to give Cool Buck a try. And remember, if you get lucky, we always love seeing screenshots or clips of your big wins over on our forum.
