Buffalo Blitz

Buffalo Blitz is a new Playtech designed video slot, and easily one of the most adventurous they have ever developed. The slot is based on rampaging animals across the plains of North America, and the stand out thing about this game is that it is played over a massive 4,096 paylines.

Buffalo Blitz actually uses rather basic and bland graphics, which is a surprise for such a new slot machine. It isn’t just buffalos which are represented in this slot, either, with bobcats, bears and other North American fauna cropping up throughout the game.

Developers

Playtech are usually behind rather innovative games, so their decision to make this particular video slot with 4,096 paylines shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise.

To accommodate those paylines, this slot has been designed with 6 reels, instead of the default 5 you would normally find in a video slot from Playtech. The game is perhaps not as flexible with wagers as other titles, but that shouldn’t hold you back too much.

Buffalo Blitz is very much in the same vein as WMS Gaming’s Raging Rhino, with similar features and an identical number of lines. It is pretty obvious that Playtech drew their inspiration for the Buffalo Blitz slot from that title. Raging Rhino was a roaring success, so perhaps Buffalo Blitz will be, too.

How to play

At the bottom of the reels, players will find an incredibly simply designed wagering control bar. The graphics in the slot aren’t the brilliant, and neither is the control bar, so at least Playtech is being consistent. From the control bar, you can select coin sizes of 1c up to $5 in total.

This will see your total bet rise from a floor of just 40c per spin, up to a ceiling of $200 per spin. This is more than modest, given the number of lines you get to play with.

Features

Wild symbols: Wild symbols take on the form of a blue diamond in this slot, and those diamonds are whoppers. They can substitute for all other symbols in the game, with the exception of the free games symbols. However, wilds can only appear on the second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth reels of the slot.

Scatters and free spins: Scatters appear as “free games” icons. They are good on their promise, and can deliver players up to 100 free games if 3, 4, 5, or 6 appear in any positions on the screen.

Players who land 3, 4, 5, or 6 such symbols will start the bonus round with 8, 15, 25, or 100 free games, respectively. During the free games bonus, 5, 8, 15, 25, or 100 additional free spins can be won if players land 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 scatters anywhere on the reels.

During the bonus round, any wilds you encounter will multiply your winnings by 2x, 3x, or 5x the normal rate of pay, when they are used to complete winning combinations.

Stacked buffalos: The title animals in this slot are capable of appearing stacked on the reels of the game – all of them.

Stacked buffalos happen to be the best paying symbols in this slot, and you’d do well to try and land as many of them across as many reels as you can to pocket the maximum win. Speaking of the maximum win, how much are we talking about?

Maximum pay-outs

The biggest line win you can have in the Buffalo Blitz video slot is 300 coins. This is achieved by having six buffalo symbols in a winning combination on a payline.

Since these symbols can appear stacked, and the bonus round offers multipliers; the total haul you could come away could be substantially more, though.

Summary

Some casino players are going to get hung up on the fact that Buffalo Blitz is quite obviously a bit of a copy of Raging Rhino. Other players who loved that original game aren’t going to mind a jot.

Since WMS and Playtech games don’t normally appear together at most casinos, you will either end up playing one or the other. There are elements to Buffalo Blitz, which one could like (such the number of paylines), though, there’s hardly enough of them to fall in love with the slot.
