Buffalo Blitz is an online slot game by software developer Playtech. The theme here is nature and the great outdoors and this offering is certainly one worthy of its theme. Although not the latest, the graphics are of very good quality. Clearly, they are not 3D, though, and they don’t quite boast any amazing animated features either. The backdrop takes you to a seemingly endless plane covered in green grass, and in the distance you can see snowcapped peaks towering above the desolate landscape. But it’s the purple-dyed sky that takes up most of the scene. Evidently, it’s either dusk or dawn, as the colors change from a mild pinkish at the bottom to a deep blue towards the top. And the reels display various North American animals such as moose, raccoons, mountain lions, and bears. But leading them is, of course, the buffalo, hence the title.

Now as for the layout in this offering, you will notice that it is rather unusual. It has a larger grid than what’s considered the norm. There are 6 reels and 4 rows, and these come with a whopping 4,096 ways to win. Needless to say, that you will not have the ability to regulate paylines in this title. With this in mind, though, stakes in Buffalo Blitz are actually within reason. They span from a minimum bet of 40p per single spin to £200 per spin.

Special Features

Wild

Look out for the blue diamond symbol, as it acts as the game’s Wild. Just keep in mind that it doesn’t offer any payouts of its own and it cannot land on every reel; the only reels where the Wild can land are 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. But when it does land, it will be able to replace any of the other symbols with the exception of the Scatter. In doing so it can complete winning combos, thus boosting your winnings. What’s more, it can further increase your prizes as it offers a 2x, 3x or 5x multiplier on all winning combinations it partakes in.

Scatter

The Scatter symbol will be responsible for triggering this title’s only special feature – the Freespins Bonus. To trigger it, you will have to land a minimum of 3 Scatter icons anywhere in view, and the number of freespins you receive will depend on the number of Scatter symbols you landed. If you land 3 Scatter symbols simultaneously during a spin you can count on the minimum of 8 freespins. For landing 4 or 5 Scatters, though, you will receive a total of 15 or 25 freespins, respectively. Finally, if you land the maximum of 6 Scatters you will gain a staggering 100 freespins.

In addition, the Wild multipliers will also be valid during this bonus round, and better yet, there is also the possibility to retrigger the Freespins Feature. As a matter of fact, you can even do so by landing just 2 Scatters at the same time. This will result in you receiving 5 extra freespins, and if you land further Scatter symbols during a spin, they will award you the same amount of freespins as described above.

Verdict

Buffalo Blitz is a decent, but pretty simplistic title nonetheless. What makes it especially attractive, though, is the incredibly generous freespins feature. Coupled with the Wild multiplier, it can make for some rather handsome wins.
