It’s always important for a game to have a good look to it and that’s definitely the case here. There’s a lovely landscape on view and it’s covered in snow. Now with all this white stuff lying on the ground will we actually be able to see the White Buffalo? Well there aren’t that many of them around these days but they are spiritually important to a number of North American tribes.
‘White Buffalo’ has five reels with 25 pay-lines on its three rows of symbols. Making sure you only bet what you can afford to lose is really important. It’s good therefore that you don’t have to be playing all of those pay-lines if yhou don’t want to. You can play for just €0.01 if going for minimum stake and just one pay-line activated or €0.25 for minimum stake and all pay-lines in play. The maximum stake is a massive €750 so high-rollers may well be attracted to this game in search of huge wins. Just to ensure you know how many pay-lines have been activated there are meters on each side of the reels.
The symbols in the game feature a variety of animals that are native to this part of America. As well as the buffalo there’s a ram, elk an a moose. That’s all though because for some reason we have the Nine to Ace playing card symbols. Why have a theme and then stick so many card symbols on there?
The wild in this game isn’t the buffalo but the circular talisman. Hopefully that will be really lucky for you as it substitutes for other symbols to get you winning combinations. It’s unable to sub for the white skull which is the scatter symbol in this game. Now usually scatter symbols have the job of helping to trigger bonus games but not here. It still has a good use though because when it appears anywhere on the reels it can get you some decent wins with five of them paying 50x your total wager.
There are two top paying symbols in this game, the white buffalo and the wild symbol both pay 1000x your coin if you can get five of them on a pay-line.
This isn’t a complex game but make sure you take a look through the paytable before playing the game for real. A few free games will also show you just how the game runs especially the bonus game.
The game can be played in regular or expert mode. The big difference is in expert mode you have an autoplay feature. To swtich from one to another of the modes just click on the button below the reels. The autoplay can either be five or ten automated spins or set a more precise feature where you can get the autoplays to stop if your account reaches a certain level, good or bad.
Big Game Bonus
As previously mentioned it’s not the scatter symbol that triggers the Big Game bonus feature. Instead ‘White Buffalo’ has one that is randomly activated. That can really help you because it doesn’t mean you have to be spending cash activating loads of pay-lines.
The bonus game is of the free spins variety with just the six awarded to you. During the free spins the animal symbols become White Buffalo symbols so that increases the chances of you getting some winning combinations. Those free spins can also be re-triggered if your luck is in.
Another entertaining slot from Microgaming. The look of the game is a bit like one of those Christmas cards that go on sale in July. The soundtrack won’t have you reaching for the mute button but I wish there were more animal symbols in the game. Adhering to the theme more via the symbols would have been appreciated. It’s strange that the scatter doesn’t trigger the bonus round but when that does come along it can get you some good wins.
