Famous studio, Playtech, brings us another slot game that features all the classic characteristics that we know and love. Buffalo Blitz is a 6 reel, 4,096 payline slot that takes us on a walk through North American grassland where buffalos, raccoons, lynxes and other animals will keep you company as you spin.
The game isn’t equipped with fancy graphics and many special features, but it will appeal to all those that love high stakes and don’t mind being patient to earn some big winnings.
What We Love
First of all, we love the classic design and the simplicity of playing. Although the game itself doesn’t have much flash, sometimes it’s a good thing. There aren’t many things to distract the players who love a simple game that resembles old-fashioned slots.
As we already said, don’t expect special features popping up from left and right in Buffalo Blitz. The only great special feature is the Free Games feature.
Basically, it’s a Scatter symbol that triggers free spins and it’s your best chance at winning big. The only thing you need is three Free Games icons on the reels and the free spins can begin. Three of these bad boys will bring you 8 free spins while getting six of them means enjoying 100 free spins.
There’s more. During free spins, new free spins can be triggered if you see at least two Free Games symbols on the board. And another cool thing – a diamond on the board is a Wild that only appears during free spins. This icon randomly multiplies your win by 2x, 3x or 5x when substituting.
Finally, we loved the fact that this game can potentially be quite profitable. The true appeal of Buffalo Blitz lies in patient play and big payouts. You just need to wait for those free spins.
What We Do Not Like
All of that being said, Buffalo Blitz is borderline boring, especially for those that don’t just play for the sake of winning but for the sake of entertainment as well.
The theme is plain and it’s something every slot fan has seen a million times. There aren’t any attractive visuals or any cool special effects that would increase the game’s aesthetic appeal.
But more importantly, the game offers very little excitement aside from the base game. The only special feature is that of Free Spins and a Wild that comes only during that time.
Playtech failed to make the game interesting with some other awesome features or any kind of innovative details that would make Buffalo Blitz stand out from other similar games.
Buffalo Blitz is a high variance game that will surely have a certain appeal for high rollers. It will also sit well with those willing to be patient and spend hours waiting for Free Games feature to bring in big payouts. However, if you’re just a casual player seeking an amusing slot with lots of twists and turns, don’t bother trying this game.
