Pragmatic Play – Buffalo King Megaways – Free Slot Game

Buffalo King Megaways is set in the stunning landscape of a Grand Canyon during sunset and visually resembles the original Buffalo King . We feel like Pragmatic didn’t really try to change much, other than making everything bigger and bolder. We’ll say anything, but the 5,000x potential is actually only 5.33% of the advertised maximum win in the original title.

Of course, Pragmatic has changed their tune lately and they clearly want to distance themselves from all the previous rumors about “exaggerated potentials”. This is a good thing, of course, but there is no need to overdo it either. The main attraction is the accumulating multiplier wilds you get during the bonus round, and fans of the original will hopefully appreciate the more honest approach.

Bonus Features in Buffalo King Megaways

The Canyon Mountain Wild replacesall regular payout symbols and lands only on Reels 2, 3 and 4. The Cascading Reels mechanic is central to the gameplay and means that winning symbols are removed and replaced with a new stack that drops from the top. The feature is active as long as you get new winning symbols.

You need to land at least 4 scatters anywhere to trigger the bonus round, and you get 12, 17 or 22 free spins if you land 4, 5 or 6 scatters. You will also get a scatter win of 5, 20 or 100 times your bet before the feature starts.

During the bonus round, you get a multiplier, but it’s not the regular win multiplier you might be used to. Instead, you’ll land wild symbols with multiplier values of 2x, 3x and 5x, which accumulate per cascade to boost your total win from the sequence. For example, if you first get a win with 2x Wild and then with 5x Wild, your total win will be increased by 10x.

The multiplier starts again per free spin and you get 5 extra spins if you land 3 scatters in view. There is no cap on the number of extra free spins you can receive. Finally, players outside the UK have the option to buy the bonus round outright, which will give them 100x their stake back. The Ant Bet option will cost you 25% more per spin, but will double your chances of getting the bonus round.

Rating Conclusion

has been on a rue lately, consistently keeping the advertised maximum win potential at 5,000x, rather than the supposedly “highly exaggerated numbers” they used to tout. However, this self-flagellation seems a bit much when even a Megaways release has a potential that offers half to a quarter of what most other games in the genre offer.

It really makes the 93,750 times potential of the original game seem ridiculous. The biggest difference from the first release, aside from the 200,704 potential wins, is the new way multiplier wilds accumulate in the bonus round. This is good when you’re on a multiplier wild roll, and it’s exciting to see the total win from each spin sequence massively increased when it happens. We would definitely prefer this game to the original, as honesty goes a long way.
