Thundering Buffalo slot review

Slots developers, IGT, who have been providing top-quality video slots consistently for years.  The brains behind top quality offerings such as the ancient Egyptian themed slot, Cleopatra, and the movie-themed Ghostbusters have added to its arsenal a Native American-themed slot called Thundering Buffalo.

Hexagonal Reel set

Employing a similar dazzling 5-reel hexagonal system, the game pays 720 ways, and also pays right to left as well as left to right. The betting options are kept low, probably to encourage the casual slots fans, but with potential big wins, it’s no surprise they keep coming back for more.

As with WMS’s hairy-beast themed slot, Buffalo Spirit, Thundering Buffalo sees you on the open plain facing a herd of rather aggravated looking beasts. Fearsome they may be, but the 3D animation and graphics are something to behold: line up buffalo symbols and see them start to charge towards you. Elsewhere making up the look and feel are night-time fires, wigwams, a range of hairy critters, and the familiar 10-through-Ace card symbols.

Free spins are a big feature of the game: get five in order across the reels and you’ll trigger the Free Spins bonus, which can also be re-triggered. Even at the lower end of betting, $0.01, the freebies can add up to some big wins.

Buffalo Wilds

The ‘WILD’ symbol is, helpfully, the game’s Wild, and is stacked. It substitutes all other symbols other than the Scattered bonfire or Free Spins symbol. Line up five and an incredible animated buffalo leaps out of the screen to give you a healthy win (and, presumably, a rather large headache). Wilds obviously play a big part of all slots, but with IGT’s 720-ways method, you’ll find that angry heffalump charging out a lot more than you bargained for.

There’s a reason IGT’s unique feature has been popular all over the world: it’s a thrill and potentially can increase your wins, even starting from humble beginnings. Add that to some great animation and IGT can continue releasing MultiWay Xtra slots for some time with a pretty reasonable expectation of success down the line.
