Wild West Action
Buffalo Blitz takes its thematic cue from the wildlife of the Great Plains of America. Buffalo, also known as American bison, once dominated the land with a population estimated to be in the tens of millions.
European settlers hunted the animals almost to extinction. Now protected, the numbers have rallied back to nearly 150,000. Who says online casino games don’t give you pause to reflect.
So, back to the game. Buffalo Blitz Megaways Jackpot Blitz was released in October 2021 and is the sequel to a herd of eponymous forerunners, including the likes of Buffalo Blitz, Buffalo Blitz 2 and Buffalo Blitz Megaways.
The game is the latest addition to the Megaways franchise which now has more than 70 games. Each new addition adds an extra feature, in this case: a randomly activated Jackpot Blitz.
Icons in play include golden buffalo - stacked on all reels, racoons, bear, elk, and puma, as well as the standard 9, 10, J, Q, K, A. All the icons come in a variety of shapes and sizes. This all affects the amount of potential winning - megaway - paylines. You can see the odds shift, as you spin the reels. The horizontal reel counts towards the number of potential winning combinations.
The wild is a diamond, substituting for everything except the scatter. The scatter is a Bonus Games logo; four or more triggers the bonus bonus games round. The top prize in the regular game is the golden buffalo; connect six to win 120x your wager.
Buffalo Blitz Megaways Bonus Games
To herd in the big money, you need to hit at least four Bonus Game scatter symbols. You are then left with a rather lovely choice: what one of the four bonus games bonus rounds should I choose?
The options are: Blitz Bonus Games, Thunder Bonus Games, Buffalo Bonus Games, or Mystery Bonus Games. Each variant balances the quantity of bonus games against the multiplier. Generally: the higher the potential multiplier, the fewer the number of spins.
If you are lucky enough to hit three or more scatters, on a spin, during the bonus round, you trigger additional Bonus Games; the number depends on your chosen bonus round.
If a diamond hits during the bonus round, it acts as a random multiplier, boosting all wins. Once again: the multiplier depends on your choice of bonus round.
The specific upgrade that this particular version of Buffalo Blitz enjoys is a multi-level progressive jackpot, fuelled by everyone playing the same game, at any online casino. There are four jackpots to win: Mini, Minor, Major, and Blitz. No prizes for guessing the top seed.
Jackpots are rewarded randomly. A screen of diamonds appears, you click each one until you complete one of the four jackpots. Happy buffalo hunting and good luck.
