I’m happy to say that Blueprint Gaming is making full use of its licensing agreement with Big Time Gaming, and has been giving the Megaways treatment to more and more of its titles.
Buffalo Rising is just one of the many Blueprint online slots that now have a Megaways version, providing players with up to 117, 649 ways to win with each spin of the reels. It features the familiar Megaways grid with six reels with the number of symbols on each varying from 4 to 7 and an extra four reel row on top.
The symbols include playing card symbols from 9 to A, as well as a giant moose, a wolf, a grizzly bear, and the buffalo himself. The betting range is between 0.01 and 100.00 on this medium volatility game.
As well as the wildlife, there are some Feature symbols that can increase the win potential of the slot in Buffalo Hunter Megaways. First, of course, is the Wild, a big golden buffalo, which will stand in for other symbols to help form wins, but it can only land on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5.
And if that wasn't enough, there is also a sunset symbol, this is a mystery symbol, and whenever it appears on the reels, it will transform into any other, randomly chosen symbol except the Scatter.
The Scatter itself is a purple diamond, and four of these at least are needed to trigger the Free Spins.
A feature that Blueprint Gaming has been adding to a lot of online slots titles recently, and one I particularly like, is the cascading reels mechanism. Every time a win is formed, the symbols explode, and others tumble down to take their place. This can potentially lead to multiple wins from just one spin, making the gameplay much more exciting.
With four or more diamond Scatters on the reels, the Free Spins round will kick in. But in another twist, the Free Spins don’t immediately start playing. First, the player gets to choose from one of four rounds, each with a different number of spins and value of multiplier;
And those players who are feeling lucky can go for the Mystery Choice, which will give a random number of free spins with a random starting multiplier.
The great thing is the multiplier will be increased every time a win is formed in the Free Spins, and the increases are unlimited!
Blueprint Gaming has put the Megaways mechanism to maximum use in this online slot, and the player never knows how and when the wins will come. I also like the cascading reels feature, which means the wins can potentially keep piling up once they start. And the addition of the Mystery symbol also adds to the thrills this slot offers.
