Some bricks n’ mortar slots have really made it big online. One well-known case is Buffalo Slots. With 1024 ways to win, Buffalo Slots certainly keeps the player interested. There are no pay lines in the normal sense – all you need to see are the symbols on the screen of 5 reels x 4 symbols per reel. As you’d expect the buffalo symbol pays the maximum. We liked the laid-back western style soundtrack and the shout ‘Buffalo’ every time the Buffalo symbol appeared.
The wild is the sunset symbol and the scatter symbol is a gold coin. Get 3 scatter symbols and win multiple free spins. Three, four, or five gold coins initiates the free spins which, in order of the number of coins are 8, 15, and 20 free spins. During the free spins, you can win more free spins if you land 2 or more gold coins.
Our Buffalo Slots tryout
The RTP for the game is 94.85. RTP which means it’s a low-medium volatility slot so we should have started out with smallish bets but we started with a bet of €1 which is €40 per spin.
The small and medium wins were pretty frequent, ranging from €1 to €100. After a win, Buffalo offers the chance to gamble the winnings. This we did for the small wins. Hitting the gamble button we were taken to a screen with playing card aces, one per suit. Choosing either red/black, or an individual ace decides the odds and as you’d expect red/black is 50:50 so if the gamble amount is €4 the winnings are €4. After a win, you can gamble again.
After our first decent win which doubled our starting bank, we decided to maximise the bet to the allowed €2 which is €80 wager per spin.
Lady luck was certainly with us and after a further 25 minutes we had accumulated over €30,000 in our bank – at which point we stopped!
If only we had played with real money and not just for fun. On that note, had this actually been €30,000 we undoubtedly would have set a stop-loss of 10% and carried on. In other words, had we then encountered a losing run then at €27,000 we’d have walked away with our winnings. Had our good luck continued then at €35,000 we’d have raised the €27,000 to €31,500 and then walked away. Of course, had we kept on winning … darn, should have played with real money! It was a tryout so we were playing for free.
