Buffalo King Megaways™ Slot Review
Buffalo King Megaways is a video slot from Pragmatic Play that was released on April 29, 2021. The Buffalo King Megaways slot game has a natural setting reminiscent of the Grand Canyon as its background for the action. This is the Megaways version of Buffalo King, so you can anticipate the same images, symbols, and animations as in the original game. The setting is the prairies of North America. The artwork is reminiscent of comic books, and it is accompanied with a twangy slice of Americana. It works well with the rough and harsh atmosphere of this overall adventurous theme.

Buffalo King Megaways Bonus Features
Because of the Tumble Feature, winning combos are evaluated after each spin, and winning symbols are removed once they have been paid out. The surviving symbols slide down to the bottom of the screen, while fresh symbols descend from the top of the screen to fill the spaces left vacant by the removed symbols. The size of the newly generated symbols is identical to that of the result of the original spin. The tumbling process will continue until there are no more winning combo outcomes that can be generated by the tumble. In short, if you are familiar with the Avalanche or Cascades features that many other developers provide in the slots, you will be easily familiar with this one too.
It is necessary to gather between 4 and 6 Bonus symbols in order to activate the Free Spins bonus round.
- If you collect 6 BONUS symbols, you will get 22 free spins in addition to a multiplier of your stake.
- If you collect 5 BONUS symbols, you will get 17 free spins and a 20x multiplier of your stake.
- If you collect 4 BONUS symbols, you will get 12 free spins and a 5x multiplier of your stake.
During the round of free spins, WILD symbols may provide a random multiplier of 2, 3, or 5 times the initial bet. The multiplier of a WILD that contributes to a winning combination is added to a tumble multiplier indicator after each time it appears in a winning combination.When a tumble sequence is played, any and all wild multipliers that appear are multiplied by each other. When the tumble series has reached its conclusion, the total win for that tumble sequence will be multiplied by the accumulated multiplier. During the bonus round, if you collect 3 or more BONUS symbols, you will be awarded with 5 more free spins. There is no cap placed on the total number of retriggers that can occur.
The player will have the opportunity to make a choice about the bet multiplier. The manner in which the game is played varies according to the wager that is chosen. The following are the potential values:
- Bet multiplier 1x - Normal Play
- Bet multiplier 1.25x - The opportunity to earn FREE SPINS is increased by a factor of two, and there are now more BONUS symbols than usual on the reels. However, the paytable for symbols is unaffected, and they continue to pay out according to the standard 1x multiplier for bets.
Buy Free Spins
You may immediately access the Free Spins Feature from the main game by purchasing it for 100 times the amount of money currently being wagered. If you choose to play with the 1.25x ante bet option, the BUY FREE SPINS function will not be available to you. When the FREE SPINS feature is purchased, there is a random chance that 4, 5, or 6 BONUS symbols will appear, granting 12, 17, or 22 free spins, accordingly.
Our Experience Playing Buffalo King Megaways
When we began playing this slot machine, we were welcomed with pictures that brought to mind a cartoon and music that sent us back to simpler times. Both of these elements were really nostalgic for us. We were excited to try out this slot machine for ourselves after hearing so many positive things about it from other people. In order to do this, we put it through our standard test, which entails making a deposit of 200 Euros, adjusting the bet to 1 Euro, and playing it for around 300 rounds. The first one hundred spins were pretty greedy in terms of payouts, until we collected 4 BONUS symbols and played our 12 Free Spins that paid us 77 Euros. Because of this, after one hundred spins, we had accumulated a profit of 20.75 Euros, which, considering the slot's level of volatility, was not a terrible result. We made the decision to use the Ante Bet option in the hopes of triggering more bonus rounds since there were no substantial rewards during the main game. Unfortunately, that did not work out, and now our total bankroll was 132.80 Euros. We decided to raise the amount of our stake to 1.2 euros and purchase the bonus feature using the money that was left in our balance. We got unlucky and won only 44.40 during that bonus round. We proceeded to spin the reels using the Ante Bet option while betting 1.25 Euro every spin with the money that was left in our bankroll. We had an incredible run of luck and were able to collect 6 BONUS symbols, which granted us 22 Free Spins. During those Free Spins, we were able to collect 3 additional BONUS symbols, which granted us 5 additional Free Spins. As a result of our good fortune, we were awarded a generous payout of 302.1 Euros. Overall, after around 250 spins, we won 135.60 Euros and were quite satisfied with the result.
Buffalo King Megaways™ Verdict
We may conclude that the Megaways engine makes it much more intriguing, but in general, Buffalo King Megaways is just as entertaining as its older brother. In spite of the fact that it is difficult to anticipate large rewards during the main game, the Free Spins bonus round has the potential to easily make up for this shortcoming. However, you will need a little luck in order to collect those BONUS symbols. Because the basic game does not provide any rewards that are even remotely satisfactory, we strongly suggest that you make use of the Ante Bet option, which will increase the likelihood that you will go to the bonus round. This slot game has a high degree of volatility, thus, you should come prepared with a substantial bankroll, as it may take some time before you reach the much sought-after bonus rounds that pay out. Overall, it is a worthy successor to the original Buffalo King and we recommend you try it at least once. Good luck and have fun!
