Buffalo Blitz slot review
Journey to wide open plains of North America in Buffalo Blitz, a 6×4 reel video slot featuring 4096 ways to win, stacked Buffalo symbols, up to 100 Free Spins with random multipliers, and a maximum win potential of up to 10 000x your line bet.
Set against a picturesque grassland wilderness at dusk, there is little doubt that Buffalo Blitz draws its inspiration from Aristocrats hugely popular slot Buffalo, both in its conceptual design as well as the mechanical feature set. Released by Playtech in 2016, Buffalo Blitz is a fairly simple slot with enhanced features that make this a very appealing game.
6-reel video slots are quite rare in a gaming landscape dominated by 3 and 5 reel games. The extra reel may create an impression of more frequent and higher-paying wins but this isn’t necessarily the case. The 6th reel doesn’t change the volatility or boost the RTP (Return to Player), but it does present an opportunity for game designers to add a new dimension of fun and excitement to the game. In this case, the extra reel offers the player a staggering 4096 ways to win on every spin, and also allows for generous 6 of a kind wins.
8, 15, 25 or 100 Free Spins can be won by landing 3, 4, 5 or 6 Scatters on the reels. This feature can be retriggered anytime by landing 2 or more Scatters, with the potential to unlock a maximum of 200 Free Spins in one Free Games bonus round. The Diamond Wild Multiplier substitutes for regular symbols and helps to complete winning combinations, and also boosts your Free Spin wild wins by 2x, 3x or 5x.
Every spin requires a 40-coin wager. Players can simply select their coin size from as little as 0.01 to 5.00 coins per line, yielding a betting range of 0.40 to 200 coins per spin, depending on the maximum bet limits set by the casino. Autoplay and Turbo Mode (Quick Spin) options are also available for players who prefer to customize their gameplay sessions.

- Wild symbols help to increase the chances of winning combinations still further and random win multipliers during free games generously increase the size of jackpots.
- The unusual theme and related attractive animal symbols make the game really easy on the eye.
- Payouts are comparatively small, even for the game’s most valuable combinations.
- Without a bonus round or side game gameplay can get very repetitive and rather dull.
- The range of stake options for each spin is relatively limited, meaning that higher rollers are likely to be discouraged.
Buffalo Blitz Bonus Features
Although Buffalo Blitz clearly directs its main attention towards its free spins bonus, allowing players to trigger up to 200 rounds in one go. But additionally, the slot also manages to include other staple mechanics such as Wild symbols, Wild multipliers and Win multipliers into both the base game and free spins to add yet another layer to experience.
The Diamond Wild symbol is present in both the main game and free spins, stepping in for any paying symbols that form part of a winning combination. While the symbol carries no value in the base game, it does carry a multiplier with it when the free spins segment is triggered. The multiplier available in the bonus rounds delivers a random number that can vary between 2x, 3x and 5x.
A minimum of 3 free spins Scatter symbols are required to access the game’s free spins. 3, 4, 5 or 6 symbols trigger 8, 15, 25 or 100 free spins accordingly. Additionally, more free spins can be re-triggered by landing more combinations of Scatter symbols and topping up the bonus round count.
Once triggered, free spins gameplay is identical to the base game, save for the Wild multiplier that accompanies the Diamond Wild symbol. This can lead to the game’s biggest payout which amounts to x10,000 your selected bet. Additionally, free spins can be topped up by landing more Scatter symbol combinations, with the possibility to land an astounding 200 free spins in one go.
Buffalo Blitz Jackpot
Although the game doesn’t feature a dedicated set of fixed or progressive jackpot prizes, the highest prize players can achieve is 10,000x. This is made available through the Wild Multipliers that come into play during free spins.
RTP & Volatility
Highly volatile, Buffalo Blitz offers a slightly disappointing return to player rate of 95.96%. It’s a bit below the average we come to expect of similar games and can be quite frustrating when paired with the high volatility setting.
Buffalo Blitz on Mobile
The plains of America look equally astonishing on mobile, thanks to Buffalo Blitz’s full compatibility with both Android and iOS devices. No matter what your preferred device is, you can rest assured that the slot can be enjoyed in all of its glory.
