Buffalo Slot Machine

The animal theme is one of the most popular choices for those who like to play slots for free or real money, and while there are countless animal slots in existence you may be surprised to hear that this isn’t even the only Buffalo themed slot - but exactly how does it stack up against competitors such as Buffalo Thunder from Novomatic and the many others that have been developed?

Reel Power

Buffalo boasts a generous 94.58% return to player percentage and is played across 5 reels and thanks to the Xtra Reel Power feature it boasts 1,024 ways to win, however you don’t select paylines - instead you select reels to play with an amount set per reel. Selecting reel one costs 1x, selecting reel one and two costs 5x, selecting reel one to three costs 10x, selecting reel one to four costs 20x, while all five reels activated costs 40x. In addition to this there are four rows as we also saw in 50 Dragons and 50 Lions rather than the usual three rows which are so often used.

Buffalo Bosses the Reels

Like the Wolf Moon slot machine (also developed by Aristocrat), Buffalo also features various other animals on the reels rather than focusing solely on the gigantic mammals themselves, with a total of thirteen symbols falling on the reels.

The Buffalo is the most valuable symbol of all with five on a single payline rewarding you with 300 coins but it’s just a standard symbols and not the Wild or Scatter. The Wild is a stunning sunset protruding from the horizon and this substitutes for all others except the Scatter, however it does only appear on the second, third, and fourth reels rather than them all. The Scatter in Buffalo is a golden coin, while an American Eagle, Tiger, Grey Wolf, and Deer are the other animals on the reels, with the line-up of symbols completed with the low valued Ace to 9 we see so often.

Up to 27x Multiplier

This is simply one of the best free spins modes that I have ever encountered, and certainly offers you the opportunity of claiming some Buffalo-sized wins!

To activate the free spins mode you’ll first need to land three or more Scatter symbols (golden coin) anywhere on the reels with the number that land determining the amount of free spins that will assigned to you. Three scatters see you claim 8 free spins, four see you claim 15 free spins, while five Scatters see you claim the maximum of 20 free spins – but in addition to this the feature can actually be retriggered as you play and should you only manage to land two Scatter symbols (rather than the minimum of three to trigger at least eight) you’ll generously receive five more spins!

Sounds incredible doesn’t it? Well it gets even better.

While your free spins play out each and every Wild (the sunset) that appears on the second, third or fourth reels will see the amount won for that spin doubled or tripled – and that means the total win for any spin could be multiplied by up to 27x which is astonishing.

Buffalo Conclusion

Buffalo was actually a very popular Aristocrat title at brick-and-mortar casinos as well as in Fixed Odds Betting Terminals so they brought it online to be played at some of the best online casinos whether it be on desktop, tablet or mobile.

I was a little disappointed the symbols weren’t more Buffalo-themed with different sizes of herds and stances. Instead it’s just a rather general animal-themed slot with a Buffalo as the Wild symbol but to be fair they have been well designed.

What did impress me was the quite sensational free spins mode where you can actually enjoy a multiplier bonus of up to 27x, receive up to 20 free spins (which can be retriggered) - plus landing just two Scatters in one spin sees five more spins added to your counter which happens very regularly.
