Buffalo Blitz Review
Buffalo Blitz is a classic 6-reel, 4,096 payline slot developed by Playtech that's famed amongst online slot enthusiasts for offering lucky punters an incredible 100 free spins if they're lucky enough to trigger it by landing 6 scatter symbols across all of the reels.
We'll be totally honest, Buffalo Blitz has seen better days, having not aged that well over the years. The vibrant blue reels are set in front of what we assume are the vast North American plains that were once famed for wild bison in years gone by.
Low paying symbols are a no-thrills royal suit. When the game's reels are spinning players are treated to a short and quick drum beat, nothing overly fancy, but it does the job of building a degree of suspense each time the play button is pressed.
When a bonus round triggers that's when everything ramps up a notch. For what's usually quite a low-key game, Playtech has truly succeeded at building excitement and drama during this bonus period.
Fast-paced high-energy music (that wouldn't seem out of place in a television game show) begins, lightning appears around the reels when there's the chance for special symbols to land and a diamond rotates in the top centre, applying multipliers to wins at random.
This slot couldn't be easier to follow, as like most classic titles there's an action bar along the bottom of the game screen that has everything players could possibly need. On the far left-hand side of the game screen there's an info button that brings up the paytable and bonus feature details, alongside this there's a coin value that can be changed using - and + buttons (to change your stake anywhere between 0.40 and 40).
On the right-hand side of the action bar, players can set up to 99 automated spins by clicking the Autoplay button, or just simply spin the reels by clicking the big button that simply reads 'SPIN'. It's that simple.
Buffalo Blitz has an ever-so-slightly below average RTP of 95.96%, but we're not allowing that to detract from the fact that players can win a total of 10,000x their initial stake when playing this exciting high volatility title.
How many games do you know that offer players the opportunity to win 100 free spins? Not many, that's for sure! For that reason alone we recommend playing this slot, it's a pretty average all-rounder, but 100 free spins... Who on earth could turn that down?
