Playtech is back with a highly anticipated sequel to their successful Buffalo Blitz game. Buffalo Blitz 2 Slot promises much of the fun and excitement from the first game, as well as sharper graphics and new features.
We return to the wild excited to see what this game has to offer, and Buffalo Blitz 2 is in good company amidst a portfolio of captivating games made by Playtech.
Buffalo Blitz 2 has settled upon a theme which is unsurprisingly, very similar if not almost identical to the first game. However, the game and symbols do look a little sharper than the first, which is how a sequel should be.
The music is a little ominous, but apart from that, the sound of the game is a little bit on the basic side. Nothing that new has been brought to the table in terms of design, but the gameplay is the most important thing after all.
You’ll find the user interface for this, and any other Playtech game beautifully simplistic and easy to use, both on Mobile casinos and desktop.
Buffalo Blitz 2 is a 6-reel slot using 4096 ways to win. This means that matching symbols on adjacent reels starting from the leftmost reel will form a win if 3 or more are present regardless of their position.
Various different animal symbols make their return in Buffalo Blitz 2, all of which are looking rather sharp compared to the first game. The top symbol is, of course, the Buffalo Blitz.
Tiger and Raccoon are tied for second place as the next highest paying symbol, and Elk and Bear are equal at third. Low paying symbols are A, K, Q, J, 10 & 9.
Betting options for this game will cover the needs for all types of different players. Should you want to play it safer, a low option of 0.20 is available.
If you really want to cause a stampede, then your bet can be raised as high as 250 per spin. Between the two, there are plenty of other options for each and every player to choose a stake that suits them.
There aren’t tonnes going on in the base game. As mentioned, this New Slot is played using 4,096 ways to win, so you can at least benefit from not having to worry about where on their respective reels the symbols land.
As with any ways to win a game, the potential is definitely there for those nice base hits. The game does, however, feature an interesting Wild feature…
A Diamond Wild is present in Buffalo Blitz 2, which can land randomly with a multiplier. This can randomly multiply wins by x2, x3 and x5.
This symbol appears on reels 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 only and will substitute for any other symbol except for the scatter.
More than one of these Wilds are able to land per spin, but unfortunately, the wild values are added together rather than multiplied by each other.
3-6 Scatter symbols anywhere will trigger the Free Spins, and the amount of spins you get are determined by how many scatters triggered the bonus.
The game also has the potential to re-trigger and thankfully does so quite often.
During Free Games, the ways of winning will be boosted from 4,096, to 14,400 ways as the middle 4 reels expand vertically to become a 4-5-6-6-5-4 grid.
This goes without saying, but this really opens up the potential for those bigger hits, and with the presence of Diamond Wilds, this could manifest in some really nice wins.
Buffalo Blitz 2 is a big improvement on the original game, and if you enjoyed that then you’ll enjoy the sequel very much so.
Under the right conditions, it can be very profitable, however, it’s not exactly the biggest thrill ride of the century. The free games offer a big way to boost, which will help with those bigger hits.
To sing its praises, the Free Games do seem to trigger quite regularly, so it’s possible to get yourself a very nice collection of spins which hopefully will result in some big hits.
The Diamond Wild will be your best friend during the bonus, as well as the Buffalo symbols, and you’ll definitely want some nice multipliers if you’re to see a good return.
The game has a decent-ish High RTP of 95.96%, so your theoretical winnings may well return a good proportion of your bets, but the game is high volatility so the big hits will be few and far between.
