It’s always a reassuring thing when you come across an online slot that is clearly a sequel, mostly because you know the first title was on the level, proving popular enough to spawn something bigger and better. This is exactly where Buffalo Blitz II comes into the picture! We’re talking up to 100 free spins, with the ability to re-trigger the feature, up to 14,400 ways to win, paying both ways, plus a maximum win of 10,000x your bet. There’s plenty in that blurb to make you jump for the reels, but before you go hunting for the buffalo let’s take a look and see if this is everything we’re hyping it up to be.
For those of you familiar with the online slots realm you might have played the first instalment, Buffalo Blitz. It was a very solid effort by Playtech, the company responsible for the production, and obviously ticked all the right boxes as far as players were concerned, because a sequel has now been released. Not much has been changed in terms of scenery, as the symbols and reels are still very much the same as the original, however you’ll notice that up to 14,400 paylines are on the reels to give you a helping hand. This might not be quite on the level on Pragmatic Play’s Megaways series of slots, boasting in excess of 200k paylines in a single game, but the paylines will pay both ways and wins do seem to fall regularly.
Playtech have set the maximum Buffalo Blitz II will pay at 10,000x your bet, which when looking at the maximum bet of £10 per spin means that £100,000.00 is the most you’ll be able to win. We must add that that is a pretty low maximum bet, meaning that players usually not able to wager the highest possible amount can now go for the big time – this they can do on mobile, should they wish. Android and iOS are both accommodated.
As mentioned earlier in the review, the look and feel of Buffalo Blitz II is very much the same as the first game. There’s the same animals of the North American wilderness acting as the higher paying icons. To refresh your memory, this is the bear, the moose, the racoon and the cougar. The lower paying symbols are the industry standard playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, which always assist in helping you differentiate the value of winning icons. The highest paying symbol in the game is the mighty buffalo, with 6 of a kind paying 300x your bet.
There’s a wild in the game, and it’s the diamond. This symbol has the ability to act as any symbol, meaning it is great for forming winning combinations. The last icon to mention is the Free Games symbol.
Bonuses and Jackpots
The major bonus feature that you’ll definitely want to be triggering as often as possible is the free spins feature. It’s not a revolutionary feature, as the majority of online slots titles have this feature, but the sheer number of spins you can claim in Buffalo Blitz II is simply staggering. Should you land 3, 4, 5 or 6 Free Games symbols anywhere on the reels on the same spin you will have triggered the feature.
- 3 symbols – 8 free games
- 4 symbols – 15 free games
- 5 symbols – 25 free games
- 6 symbols – 100 free games
You can add more free spins to the amount you triggered by landing the same symbol/free spin amount combination during the free spins, only this time the amount of Free Games symbols needed only starts at 2.
The wild symbol adds a multiplier of up to 5x your bet if it lands in a winning combination, so you’ll want to land that as often as possible.
Play Buffalo Blitz II at PartyCasino
This is a really great game to play, especially for players who like keeping their bet amounts low in value. This is because the maximum bet is only £10, while there’s also more free spins in one game than you’re likely to see in any other titles. Add to that that the wild multiplies wins and there’s plenty of reasons to play Buffalo Blitz II.
