Big Buffalo Megaways Review
In 2019, Big Buffalo released and Skywind had a winning slot on their hands. Naturally, they decided to give it a Megaways makeover and thus Big Buffalo Megaways was born.
This animal slot plays on 6-reels with up to 117,649 ways to win which is a huge improvement from the 4,096 ways in the original. With up to 100 free spins and multipliers, you'll be winning the maximum win of 5,000x stake in no time - so join the herd and get stuck into Big Buffalo Megaways.
The background is a static image of the North American territory - which looks grand and stunning. However, the image is static and sadly feels a little lifeless at time.
Unfortunately, the symbols on the reels are literally the same as the original with no upgrades or updates so the images seem a little outdated.
Now, the sound is fantastic and definitely adds a great atmosphere to the slot. There is a drumbeat in between spins and ambient noises of all the different animals to make you feel transported to this location.
As previously mentioned, this slot contains the Megaways engine which increases the ways to win on the reels. Aside from that, there isn't anything different from the original and the gameplay remains simple and solid.
The menus are all on the right side of the screen with the spin button at the bottom. You'll find the autospin button just above with a further menu to direct you to the paytable and other important menus.
Thankfully, this is where the improvement comes in as the RTP is at a solid 96.50% (as opposed to the 95.50% in the original). Big Buffalo Megaways has a high volatility level and a maximum payout of 5,000x your stake. This can be triggered by triggering the free spins round and activating the wild multipliers for a huge payout.
The core gameplay hasn't changed much aside from the addition of Megaways, but the improved win potential is definitely a bonus. Now, don't expect huge amounts to be changed but the gameplay remains fun and exciting.
From the 100 free spins to the 117,649 ways to win, Big Buffalo Megaways is recommended playing if you loved the original or even if you are just a Megaways fan.
