Buffalo Hunter slot is an August 2020 release from Nolimit City. Here we’re taken to the Great Plains of North America, where the buffalo roam, and hopefully stampede! You’ll find a range of animals in a familiar slot theme but with 3 different free spins bonus rounds to spice up the gameplay.
Graphics and Sound
Value for Money
Buffalo Stampede slot is little bland in the base game and some more modifiers would have been nice to see. The volatilty is marked as extreme and we would expect nothing less from Nolimit City, as it’s all about that big win potential for most slots fans. Where Buffalo Stampede really comes to life is the free spins bonus rounds. The ability to choose between the 2 options is also a nice touch, allowing you to select which one suits your level of risk, the Prairie Multiplier spins being somewhat more volatile. Landing the Super Stampede bonus is the dream outcome though there is the option to buy it, but for 600x the stake it’s certainly a bit risky!
Buffalo Hunter Slot Stats
How it Pays and Plays
Buffalo Hunter slot is set on 5 reels with 4 rows and 40 fixed paylines.
Nolimit City have marked this slot as “extreme” on the volatility scale whilst the RTP is a fair 96.1%.
Stakes range from a low rolling but accessible 20p/cents up to a hefty $/£/€100.
The game revolves around 3 free spins bonuses, the Buffalo Horde, Prairie Multipliers and elusive Super Stampede Bonus (Unless you buy the bonus that is – in which case you can access it with 600x your stake).
Symbols and Graphics
Buffalo Hunter slot is set on a backdrop of the mountains reaching up into the sky as though you’re looking up from ground level with your view partially obstructed by the prairie grasslands. You can see the clouds moving in the evening sky as the sun looks like it’s about to set. Some panpipes play slightly upbeat but soothing music. Once you hit the free spins rounds the sky turns to a deep purple and more of a nighttime setting.
The lower paying symbols are 10’s through to Aces. Premium symbols are all different animals and include a pronghorn antelope, a wolf, a cougar, a bald eagle and a buffalo as the top paying symbol. He’ll give you 50x for 5 of a kind whilst the pronghorn antelope will only bag you 6.25x for 5.
There are also Wild symbols which sub for everything other than the Scatters.
Scatter symbols are a Red Indian Totem Pole which says Scatter on it.
There are also mystery symbols which come in the form of a swirly blue pattern.
Mystery Symbols Feature
During any base game spin you may see that a number of the mystery symbols land randomly. They will all change to reveal the same symbol. Hopefully it will be buffalos, lots of them in a nice connecting line.
Free Spins Bonuses
There are 3 variations, as mentioned above. They work like this. Get 3 Scatters and you can choose between 8 free spins on the Buffalo Horde or the Prairie Wild free spins. Get 4 Scatters and you can choose either of these but increased to 10 free spins. Finally, if you land 5 Scatters you get the Super Stampede Bonus, obviously this is going to have the best chance of paying big.
Buffalo Horde Free Spins
Here the free spins focuses on getting as many Buffalo symbols with a glowing red/yellow border around them landing in view as possible. Each time you get 5 of these it will turn the lowest remaining premium animal symbol into a buffalo symbol and also award you with 2 extra spins. So you want to get as many animals symbols turning into buffalos as possible to increase the chances of winning big
Prairie Multiplier Free Spins
Here you again collect 5 of the glowing red/yellow bordered buffalo symbols to put a 1x win multiplier on the lowest remaining valued premium animal symbol, you’ll also get 2 extra free spins for every upgraded animal. Each extra 5 buffalo symbols you land will upgrade the next animal symbol with a multiplier and the other symbols below it will also increase 1x in multiplier. You can activate all the animals and this will give you a maximum of a 5x multiplier attached to each of their symbols.
Super Stampede Bonus
This combines the above two free spins bonuses. All animals are immediately turned into buffalo symbols. Collect 5 of the red/yellow bordered buffalo symbols to upgrade the multiplier by 1x and get 2 extra free spins. You can max this out at a 5x multiplier and the potential for big wins is massive and where you could bag yourself over a 12,000x win.
Buy The Bonus
If you don’t live in the UK then you will likely have the chance to simply buy the bonus feature outright. The 3 Scatter bonus will cost you 100x your stake whilst the 5 Scatter Super Stampede bonus is an eye watering 600x. Proceed with caution down this route! The maximum you can buy the Super Stampede for is $/£/€14 which is $/£/€8400 and if you have that type of money to spend on a bonus buy then I truly envy you!
