Based around the North American wildlife and set in the scenery of green grasslands under the beautiful purple-blue sky, Playtech’s Buffalo Blitz is a 6-reel pokie machine with no less than 4,096 paying lines. As opposed to some other titles, paylines are not fixed – so don’t be too surprised with its large number.
Playtech is one of the major players in the industry of online entertainment. Established in 1999, the company now employs more than 4,500 employees in 14 different countries. The range of their products includes some of the most popular pokies available for both desktop and mobile devices. Wild West themed games were not a Playtech’s specialty, yet the developer decided to release such a pokie machine encouraged by the success of WMS’s Double Buffalo Spirit and NextGen’s Cash Stampede.
How to Play
The Buffalo Blitz pokie machine features a unique method of any matching symbol on adjacent reels instead of classic fixed paying lines. You need to collect 3 or more same symbols on the reels 1, 2, 3 and other, starting from the left reel, to create a winning combination. The size of your winnings may appear quite low, but the game offers some 4,096 ways to win – which actually come fast and pretty frequent.
The game is packed with themed symbols, so you can find nicely designed Grizzly Bears, Raccoons, Mountain Lions, and Moose acting as higher paying symbols, along with the standard set of playing cards (9, 10, J, Q, K and A) that will award you with less coins.
The lower value playing cards offer payouts of between 10 and 200 times your bet and you need to collect between 2 and 6 symbols, where you can use a wild icon as a substitute. Higher paying symbols offer up to 300 times your line bet payouts.
