The Skywind Group takes us to the desert and the home of the buffalo of the game’s title.

How to Play
If there is a negative regarding the Big Buffalo slot it lies in its insistence on using a 40 coins-based bet system, meaning that you must divide your bet by 40 in order to work out the paytable payouts. It doesn’t necessarily matter, and is more like the systems used on classic slots like Thunderstruck II and Mermaids Millions, but it is just something to look out for when you access the paytable and try to work out your winnings.
Select your bet level from the bet toggle next to the spin button, hit the spin button and match symbols adjacently from left-to-right to win the payouts for those symbols. As the game plays out over 4,096 Ways to Win and all symbols appear stacked, this can lead to multiple winning combos on any given spin. Landing three or more Free Games Scatters launches the Free Games feature, as described in the bonus section.
The Buffalo is appropriately the top-paying symbol in the Big Buffalo slot, awarding a 300 coin payout for landing six adjacently. The Eagle and Wolf, Coyote and Wildcat come next in the paytable stakes, awarding 250 and 200 coins respectively for landing six symbols from left-to-right. The Big Buffalo online slot follows other adventure slots like NetEnt’s Jumanji with the use of rather more standard 9s through Aces as the game’s low paying symbols, which award between 100-150 coin payouts for six adjacently. These lower symbols are kept up in Wild West style, however, to keep with the Arizonian theme. The Wild symbol appears on reels 2-6, substituting for all symbols except Free Game Scatters, which appear on ever reel.
Big Buffalo boasts a single bonus feature, but with 100 free games on offer it has potential to provide one heck of a bonus.
