The Buffalo Rising Megaways™ slot is the fourth game produced by Blueprint Gaming that incorporates the Megaways™ game engine. After the success of its predecessors, this 6-reel slot comes to steal the show – it is arguably the best in the series so far.
Now, Blueprint is known as a maker of distinctly creative games, so this creation sports, along with 6 reels and up to 117,649 winning ways, an interesting Wild West theme represented with a drove of animals typically found there. If you have a thirst for expeditions into vast unexplored plains, get in the saddle, we’re going West!
Blueprint managed to round off the gaming experience with all important details pertaining to the design – from the background, the symbols on the reels, and the incorporation of typical upbeat music that boosts the adventurous atmosphere.
The setting of the Buffalo Rising Megaways is a canyon which surrounds the reels. They are filled with card icons from 9 to A, the standard set of lower value, and animals such as wild moose, wolves, grizzly bears, and buffalos.
The buffalo has the highest paying value, awarding up to 50x your stake if 6 identical tiles land connected on the reels at the same time. Other symbols include a Wild and a Scatter, the latter of which is represented by a diamond.
Chasing the Herds
The Buffalo Rising Megaways mechanism is based on Collapsing Reels, meaning that winning combinations disappear from the reels and their vacancies are filled with new tiles falling from above. If new winning combinations are enabled, they will disappear as well and so on.
The round lasts until there are no new winning combinations to be made. It is important to note that the number of tiles per reels is not fixed, so different numbers of various sizes symbols can fill out the reels on each spin, each size acting like a normally sized symbol.
One additional special symbol which sometimes can appear is a landscape tile, which upon landing transform all symbols in a winning combination into this symbol. This feature is known as Mystery symbol.
On the other hand, Free Spins are available too – and to trigger this feature you’ll need at least 4 identical Scatters, or better yet, Diamonds. The Buffalo Rising Megaways feature offers a choice for each player – 5, 10 or 15 Free Spins coupled with multipliers going from 10x (for 5 spins), to 5x (for 10 spins) and 1x (for 15 spins). You can also choose the Mystery Choice where the number of spins and multipliers is a surprise.
If you wish to get to Free Spins faster without having to wait for Scatters to land, you can buy into the feature – with a price of a bet 100x your stake in Buffalo Rising Megaways slot.
