Expert's review Ziv Chen

Slot tested

If you're looking to play a great slot in the scorched terrain of America's Wild West, Buffalo King is the game for you. The desert backdrop and wild animals aren't the only beautiful things about Buffalo King. This high volatility 4x6 slot features Wild multipliers, Up to 100 Free Spins, and a massive potential win of 93,750x your stake.

Let's find out what makes this Pragmatic Play slot popular since it was released in January 2020. Head with me to the great American wilderness to meet the Buffalo King!

Design, Theme, and Sounds

Like most Pragmatic Play's latest slots, Buffalo King boasts the developer's slick graphics and design. However, unlike many Americana-themed slots, this game relies heavily on wildlife rather than going full Wild West with cowboy-related visuals.

Upon loading the Buffalo King slot, you'll head to the expansive prairies of the American West, where the various animals that inhabit the plains greet you. Of course, the titular buffalo is the star of the show, but you'll also see plenty of his animal buddies, such as wolves and mountain lions. There's a canyon setting with tumbleweed, desert rocks, and cactus setting the scene in the backdrop.

Buffalo King is a colourful slot, but it lacks that something special, and it feels like this is a safe theme that takes few risks. Considering the high-payout potential of Buffalo King, the lack of more exciting gameplay seems like a missed opportunity.

Symbols

Pragmatic Play keeps it fairly simple in terms of symbols. When spinning the reels on Buffalo King, you'll see standard card suits, low-paying symbols, while the game's high-paying symbols are depicted as animals from the American prairie.

Special Symbols

  • Scatter (gold bonus coin):Landing three or more Scatter symbols trigger the Free Spins bonus.
  • Wild (canyon rock symbol):Substitutes any other symbol on a payline apart from the Scatter bonus.

High Paying Symbols

  • Buffalo: Pays max 7.5x for 6 on a playline.
  • Bold Eagle, Cougar:Pays max 6.25x for 6 on a playline.
  • Wolf, Moose:Pays max 5x for 6 on a playline.

Low Paying Symbols

  • A, K:Pays max 3x for 6 on a payline.
  • Q, J: Pays max 2.5x for 6 on a payline.
  • 10, 9: Pays max 2x for 6 on a payline.

Sounds

In the sound department, Buffalo King sets you in the mood with an immersive audio experience. If you can imagine the rousing soundtracks of classic American Westerns, you'll have an idea of what to expect from Buffalo King.

Features

Buffalo King is not a standard online slot because it features 6 reels and 4,096 paylines. That's impressive, and it is the game's big selling point, with Pragmatic Play keeping everything else simple in terms of features. You get a bonus round, but the essential feature here is Free Spins.

Canyon Rock Wild

When playing the base game on Buffalo King, the Canyon Rock Wild symbol is something you want to see on a payline. Except for the Bonus Symbol, the Wild can substitute for any other symbol to trigger winning combinations.

That's not the only benefit of the Wild on Buffalo King. It is also important in the Free Spins round, where the Canyon Rock symbol comes with a random multiplier from 2x to 5x. Yes, Wild symbols will help you multiply a payout during the Free Spins bonus game!

Buffalo Gold Coin Bonus

The Bonus golden coin acts as the Scatter symbol to trigger Free Spins. The amount of Free Spins you get will depend on the number of Scatter icons you land on the reels as follows:

  • 3 Bonus Symbols: 8 Free Spins.
  • 4 Bonus Symbols: 15 Free Spins.
  • 5 Bonus Symbols: 25 Free Spins.
  • 6 Bonus Symbols: 100 Free Spins.

Free Spins can be re-triggered during the bonus round.

Payouts, Volatility, and RTP

Buffalo King has an RTP (Return to Player) of 96.96%, placing it a bit above average in the online slot world. The minimum wager is £0.40, and the maximum is £60 per spin. Although its high volatility can make you run through your budget fast, you can win up to 93,750x your initial stake.

So if you have an appetite for risk and want to stake the maximum £60 on a single bet, you can win a staggering £5,625,000 on a single free spin. Buffalo King is one of the biggest fixed-prize online slots out there. In fact, if you are looking for bigger potential wins, you probably need to look for a progressive jackpot slot.

Other Slots You May Like

If you liked playing Buffalo King, you should also try Raging Buffalo. A medium variance slot by RedRake Gaming with medium variance, 1,024 ways to win and a 94.99% RTP. Features include Scatters, Free Spins, Wilds, and an overall slot that is less risky, with smaller but more frequent payouts.

Another slot to try is Playson's Buffalo Power Hold. It plays across 5 reels and 20 paylines and has wide betting options between £0.20 and £100 per spin. You could potentially win 1,187x your stake through a host of features and bonus games.

Summary

Buffalo King is an online slot game for high-rollers who like to take risks in pursuit of massive payouts. Its huge multiplier means you could win a life- changing sum of money, but the high volatility means you'll spend a lot of your time losing. If you're on a budget, the American West thrills of Buffalo King are probably not for you. Buffalo King is a slot that is all about the enormous winning potential. Otherwise, Pragmatic Play opted for a generally simple visual style and even cut back on features. Although still fun to play, Buffalo King could have arguably become a much more popular slot with a little more ambition from its developer.

I'd still recommend giving Buffalo King a try. Besides the fantastic wildlife, there are another 93,750 reasons to take a spin!
