Buffalo Ways Online Slot

I ran with the Herd in Buffalo Ways Online Slot and discovered some familiar, but pleasing treats. This new title by Microgaming and GONG Gaming Technologies adopts a distinctively retro style with a 6x4 reel, 4096 payline layout. In this high volatility title, mighty buffalo symbols appear on the reels along with other glowing portraits of North American wildlife with a sunrise-bathed prairie barely visible in the background. The game’s bonus features include free spins and wilds and I was able to enjoy this tile across all platforms.

Bonus Features

In line with the classic, minimalistic slot theme, the feature selection is limited to an enhanced free spins round.

Free Spins

It took a minimum of 3 scatters to trigger this feature and I received 8 initial free spins. Landing 4, 5, or 6 scatters would have yielded 15, 25, and 100 free spins, respectively. The bonus round differed from the base game in that whenever a wild appeared, it would come with a multiplier value of 2x, 3x, or 5x. I was glad to see I could retrigger this feature with the same number of corresponding spins to the number of triggering scatters.

Conclusion

Buffalo Ways is well put-together with vivid graphics and a thumping soundtrack that got my pulse racing along with the action on the reels. The features were equally effective. Even though the free spins round stands alone, it generates great winning chances thanks to multipliers, and the prospect of getting 100 free spins was adequate for me to keep playing and attempt to reach the slot’s top prize of $240 000.

All of this felt a bit wasted on m as Buffalo Ways is very similar to other Buffalo-themed titles that I have previously enjoyed, particularly Playtech’s 2016 Buffalo Blitz slot which shares more or less the same theme and features as this new release. That being said many slot enthusiasts enjoy updated versions of old titles, and this one is accomplished with flair.
