It’s always exciting when I have a chance to play with western themed slots because most of them have very great appearance and they could be real pleasant to eye but I’ve never felt anything like this when played with Buffalo Slot and I guess if someone opens up the game it will be immediately evident why. The guys at B3W really didn’t take too much attention how this game looks like and it’s very obvious when we look at the interface. It’s one of the most rudimentary appearances on the market and sometimes it seems as it would be just a raw scratch for a future release product. The graphics are real poor, there are no decorations at all, the background image is characterless, the used symbols (Indian chief, wigwam, sheriff badge, buffalo) are poorly-drawn, blur and a little bit rigid, the design is almost non-existent so it’s not surprise that this slot can’t impress me at all and if someone would find it attractive I really would like to know why.
The game offers 11-paylines to play on but surprisingly just has got 4 reels instead of the traditional 5, while it is working with fixed $0.05 coin value where we can vary our bets using 1-5 coins. So I suppose this slot is not made for high roller players as the maximum bet we can place here is no more than $2.75. Of course the winnable amounts are set in accordance with bets and the main Jackpot of the game is $315 if the maximum number of coins were placed and 4 Buffalo Bill characters appear on any active payline, but if we played that Jackpot triggering spin with less stake this 4 of a kind win rewards us with 1000 times of line bet (max. $200).
The best attribute the game has that the slot gives chance for winning combinations to be completed by using both direction so we can achieve successes if the wins starts from the rightmost reel. Other than that the slot offers a bonus game which is activated after getting 3 or 4 Buffalo emblem on a payline. This is actually a little rodeo side game where we have to choose a steed for our cowboy and the longer he can ride the higher we win. It’s not an exciting secondary session and the payouts there are also just so-so. Anyway, the slot has not so terrible payout tendency which is some kind of success as the game doesn’t use any win multipliers, Wilds on the base game and really there’s nothing here what could increase the wins in any way.
All in all, this is a very, very simple product in every details and I don’t think that any segment of the game would have great quality. For me the game can’t offer anything that would make me force to think about returning here more frequently and the obvious lack of the ability to entertain me or having big potential really determine the frequency of visiting time. I only would consider this slot as a usable product if we want to play a little before finally deciding what game we want to play our main game session with, other than that it’s just another easily forgettable slot on the market.
