Buffalo Blitz II Review
Return to the Rocky Mountains for the second instalment of Buffalo Blitz in this epic 6-reel, 4,096 payline Playtech slot. This 2020 sequel can see players unlock a total of 14,400 ways to win with Ways Boost and trigger an incredible 100 free spins all from as little as 0.20 per spin!
Buffalo Blitz II is pretty similar to Buffalo Blitz in terms of design, and whilst we weren't that much of a fan of how the original 2016 game actually looked, this one actually gets some extra points as it retains a degree of old-school charm that you don't see in modern titles anymore.
Again, just like the original title, the vibrant blue reels are set atop a backdrop that shows vast and open North American Plains with the famous Rocky Mountains sat behind them.
Low paying symbols are your standard card deck 9, 10, J, Q, K, A and your high paying symbols are all animals you might find out in the North American wild, a bear, moose, racoon, cougar and of course the buffalo! The special symbols see a diamond appear as a wild and text reading 'FREE GAMES WAYS BOOST' as the scatter symbol.
In terms of sound, an intense drum beat plays atop a dramatic orchestral score whilst the reels are spinning, it's nothing groundbreaking, but it does a job in keeping the tension high. When the bonus feature starts the music really does take it up a notch and a fast-paced, exciting gameshow style track begins playing.
Buffalo Blitz II is identical to Buffalo Blitz in terms of how it's played. There's an action bar along the bottom of the game screen that plays host to all the game's buttons. 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 0.20 and 100).
On the right-hand side of the action bar, players can set up to 100 automated spins by clicking the Autoplay button, or just simply spin the reels by clicking the big button that simply reads 'SPIN'.
Buffalo Blitz is a high volatility slot with an RTP that is just ever so slightly below average at 95.96%, but nothing to cause too much concern. This slot generously offers players the opportunity to win 10,000x their stake, just like its popular predecessor.
Buffalo Blitz II is certainly not a poor game, that said nor is it exceptional. It's one of those middle-of-the-road online slots that's fun enough to play with good winning potential. There's not loads to differentiate it from the original, but the opportunity to unlock 14,400 ways to win is enough for us to recommend this title.
