Playtech’s Buffalo Blitz is more northern hemisphere chill than African sunshine so it’s no surprise that the symbols featured in it reflect that. So, we’re talking grizzly bears, wild moose, raccoons and lynx cats, not to mention the buffalo himself, the most valuable symbol of all, as if that comes as any big surprise.
You can actually get six of each of those in a row and that’s because this is a 6×5 reel slot. You’re not often going to get six in a row, of course, on adjacent lines, so you’ll be glad to know that even just getting the same symbol on two adjacent lines pays out a prize. Speaking of which, this is what we call a low-volatility slot, meaning that you’ll get lots of frequent small payouts rather than rare and very valuable ones.
Key to getting any sort of payout is benefiting from the help of the Wild symbol. It’s represented by a diamond symbol and can appear on any reel, except Reel 1, as per usual replacing any symbol bar the Scatter.
It is of course getting Scatters that gets you to the free spins. Getting three Free Games symbols (the Scatter) gets you 8 free spins, four gets you 15, 5 and it’s 25 and the full 6 Scatters awards you the maximum of 100 free spins. Any win in this round secured with the hep of the Wild sees a multiplier of 2xm 3x or 5x applied to it.
