By no means the first game to take its theme from the wide-open grasslands of the central United States of America, and the beautiful creatures who were so comprehensively slaughtered by the people who founded the United States of America.

Endangered though they may be, the buffalos look great here, on a six by four reel set in deep blues that sits on a prairie sunset scene that Bob Ross himself might have painted!

Thie Buffalo Blitz slot game is from Playtech, who call themselves, and we see no particular need to doubt them, the biggest online gaming software company in the world. That means that they are behind a big range of games, although they are more known for their behind-the-scenes systems.

Among Playtech’s big titles are the Age of the Gods series, Epic Ape, and Chili Eruption, as well as a load of live casino games. They are due to release Absolutely Mammoth, Bee-I-N-G-O, and Housey in 2021 and have recently put out Curse of Anubis, Andar Bahar, and Chili Eruption Thunder hits.

The game operates with a way to win system that gives us 4,096 possible winning combinations on a six-by-four reel grid that gives us 24 symbols on the screen at most points in the game. It’s rated as highly volatile, so Buffalo Blitz should payout (on average in the long term) larger prizes with a longer wait between wins. The top prize of 1,500-times stake is not particularly high for a game in this category.

It has an RTP of 95.96%. RTP means a theoretical return to the player and if you take away the number reported as RTP from 100 you’ll get the “house edge” of the expected profit from a machine. This game’s RTP is very typical of what’s on the market in 2021, though it was released way back in July 2016.

Buffalo Blitz is massively popular and long-lived, so it must be doing something right, but should you stampede along and stump up.

How to Play Buffalo Blitz Slot

The game is a standard video slot with a six-by-four grid of 24 symbols and a potential of 4,096 winning combinations for which players are aiming.

The game has a 95.96% RTP and high variance.

You can bet from 0.4 coins to 80 coins, which should translate to 40p to £80 in UK casino sites. Make sure you net only money that you can afford.

The control panel is very standard. On the left of a panel at the bottom of the screen is an “info” button (click here to see the paytable and full rules). Then the betting controls: this is done by setting the coin value, with that amount being bet on every pay line. The win and information window is in the centre of the screen, with an auto-play control next to that (these should be phased out in the UK later in 2021). Finally, there is a big spin button. The panel is blue.

The paytable has a low end of card symbols:

  • 9s and 10s pay 10-times stakes for three, 10-times for four, 80-times for five, and 100-times for six. Jacks and Queens pay 10, 30, 80, and 120. Kings and aces pay 20, 40, 100, and 150-times stake.
  • Then we have animal symbols. Elks (or maybe moose), and bears pay 10, 40, 80, 150, and 200-times stake, starting out from sets of two symbols. Raccoons and cougars pay 15, 50, 150, 200, and 250-times stake.
  • The buffalo tops off the paytable paying 40, 150, 200, 250, and 300-times stake.

There are also bonus symbols. The diamond is wild, and the scatter is the “free games” sign.

Bonus features in Buffalo Blitz Slot

The wild diamond appears on reels 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, and will substitute for any symbol apart from the scatter.

It has a multiplier function in the free spins round.

The scatter triggers free games from three or more symbols anywhere on the reels.

  • Three scatters award eight spins; 4 awards 15; 5 awards 25 spins, and six scatter symbols award 100 free spins.
  • The wild in the free spins round can apply a random multiplier to wins of 2, 3, or 5-times.
  • The free spins can be retriggered too, with 2 scatters awarding 5, 3 giving you 8, 4 giving you 15, 5 giving you 25, and 6 awarding 100 more free games.
  • The free games can be triggered with no top limit on the number of games awarded.

Buffalo Blitz Slot: the Verdict

There’s no doubting the popularity of the Buffalo Blitz slot, which has been around for five years and shows no sign of dropping off the front pages of UK online casino sites.

It’s quite a simple game in many ways: a classic video slot with some nice graphics and rather brooding sound.

The look has really caught on and there are plenty of look-alike games out on the market these days.

The bonus games are fairly simple but can be rewarding. There’s just a wild and a free spins round. But it’s a big one, with up to 100 free spins, up to 100 retriggers, and no limit on the number of retriggers.

The top prize is a 1,500-times stake, which with your bet up to 80 could be £120,000, which is a windfall we’d all love to have.

This game is almost a genre in its own right now, with a sequel, called with great imagination Buffalo Blitz II, and a huge load of buffalo-titled and themed games: Buffalo Wild, Buffalo Respin, By the Rivers of Buffalo (very funny, Skywind group!), White Buffalo, and more and more and more.

It’s a good quality game and players love it, but it’s somewhat lacking in sophistication and depth when compared to the latest games in 2021 – there’s a multiplier and a free-spins game but that’s it really.

If you like the theme and the look and feel though you will certainly have a good time and you should certainly consider giving it a spin.
