Big Wild Buffalo Slot Review

Unfortunately, most of the formerly vast buffalo herds have been wiped out by the relentless expansion of civilization, but there was once a time when the American plains were ruled by massive herds of these primitive beasts. Big Wild Buffalo brings us back to this time, to the time when the American bison reigned supreme.

The yellow buffalo wild that fills up the entire reel can substitute for any other symbol. Multiple buffalo wilds multiply the value of winning combinations by their multiplier.

Buffalo Theme

big wild buffalo mini logoThis slot is all about the buffalo and is presumably set in America somewhere in the past. It could be anywhere in the past hundred thousand years or so after Bison immigrated to North America from Asia via the land bridge. Unlike the more docile cattle, Bison were never suitable for domestication. Their tempers were too wild; their behaviours too unruly. With their strength and speed, they could easily tear down the strongest of fences.

With top speeds of up to 45 mph and weighing up to 2500 lbs, Bison are among the deadliest animals mankind found in North America and were quick to attack if provoked.

Free Spins

Three or more scatters award free games, and if you get additional scatters during your free games, then you can get even more free games up to 100 free spins maximum.

Sometimes buffalos will ramage through your screen at the beginning of a free spin. This doesn’t cost a spin but does increase the multiplier which is attached to any winning combination. And the buffalo rampages, which are fairly frequent, are also cumulative. See below.

Then the spin proceeds as normal, except that any winning combination is multiplied by the multiplier on the left, which in the image below shows x6.

Hold and Win Bonus Series

Six or more of the cash symbols trigger the ‘hold and win’ minigame. Once there, you start with three spins, but every cash symbol you accumulate stays on the board. Every time you get a new cash symbol, your spins reset to three again. Three consecutive spins without a cash symbol and the game ends and you are paid the value of your cash symbols.


Big Wild Buffalo is a great video slot. The only issue we have with it is the high RTP. Other than that, the theme, the implementation, the graphics, everything is really great. The mighty buffalo makes for a great protagonist and general theme, and the visual effects are stunning. It is especially great during the freespin rounds when the bison are trying to break out. All in all this is an excellent video slot and it will be sure to be popular amongst gamblers.
