Welcome back to some online casino news here at the best casino site. Our latest investigation has brought us to a unique slot online by Blueprint, using a mechanic that sees winning combinations come from symbols not having to line up on a payline, but simply have enough of the same symbol on the reels on the same spin. It’s Bison Bonanza, and although very similar to a sweet themed title from a rival studio still has some wild thrills and potential rewards for all who play.
As the name suggests, the theme of Bison Bonanza revolves around the great North American beast, plus a few pals in the form of extra wild animals. This theme isn't anything new, and of all the ones we've seen it isn't really the most exciting. Regardless, there are 6 reels and 5 rows for what makes up a larger that normal grid.
Something that really stands out about Bison Bonanza is that the biggest possible reward the game has to offer is 1,000,000.00. However, in order to have a shot at winning that you'll need to be playing at the highest stake of 100 per spin. You'll also need to land the maximum win of 10,000x your stake, so while possible your expectations should be kept in check.
The wild animals are the symbols that will give you the better value wins, and these consist of a linx, a wolf, an eagle, a bear and the bison as the most valuable icon. The four playing card suit symbols are the lower paying symbols, but still bring in some much appreciated wins. To land a win, you'll need eight or more of the same symbol visible on the reels at the same time.
The only extra symbol in Bison Bonanza is the scatter, being the gold coin.
The gold coin brings the real added value to Bison Bonanza in that it's responsible for activating the bonus feature. To trigger the feature, you'll need to land four or more scatters on the same spin. The number of coins that trigger the feature is inconsequential, and this is because you get to choose what free spins option you want to play. The options are as follows:
The mystery option will see you spin a wheel that will choose a random number of spins as well as a random multiplier. The potential number of free spins you can land is 20.
We wouldn’t say that Bison Bonanza is Blueprint's best game to hit online casinos, but like most online slot games offers up most thrills once you trigger the bonus feature. It's just that there's only one feature that can be triggered, unlike the trend of today that sees at least two bonus features present. However, with a maximum potential reward of 10,000x your stake, there's obviously plenty to play for.
