Buffalo Spirit is a Williams Interactive (WMS Gaming) video pokie based on the nature of the North American plains. Buffalo Spirit tries to incorporate that theme with its reel symbols, although plenty of images include the playing card suits, giving Buffalo Spirit a classical pokie feel to it, too.
The game features a pretty primitive backdrop, and could easily be described as a so-so pokie. It can be quite flexible with its wagers, though.
Buffalo Spirit’s wagering system won’t allow you to alter any of the 30 paylines, which sit upon the pokie’s 5 reels. However, it will permit players to choose coin denominations which range from 0.01 up to 3.00. At its cheapest, players can except to able to stake a floor bet of just 0.01 per line, per spin on Buffalo Spirit. At the opposite end of the wagering range, Buffalo Spirit can cost you a ceiling bet of 90.00 a pop.

Wild symbol: The buffalo plays an important role in this pokie, as you would probably imagine from its title. It appears as a wild symbol, with a green frame around it, and it can only appear on the first, second, fourth and fifth reels. Another buffalo icon is also a wild, but it only appears on the third reel. Wilds can substitute themselves for all icons, save for feature symbols.
Feature symbol: The feature icons is a moon, and it is bordered by another frame. This icon offers players special substitute icons, also. It can only replace specific playing card suits, though. There are four different combinations in which this occur, all of which can be viewed directly on the Buffalo Spirit pokie’s paytable.
The main wild (buffalo with a green frame), is also the best paying icon in Buffalo Spirit. With it, players can hope to win as much as 1,500 coins. In order to land this non-progressive jackpot, players are going to need a spot of luck on their side. They will need to line up 5 such icons across any payline to pull it off.
The return to player rate in Buffalo Spirit is actually 95.97%, which is rather fair. There are also a surplus of wild symbols used in this game, which can really help you bag wins. Unfortunately, the pay-outs do tend to be rather small in the game. Free spin bonus rounds are absent, and the feature symbols doesn’t really help that much in your question for considerable wins.
Buffalo Spirit has tried to be different, and distance itself from similar themed games. However, this pokie kind of falls flat on its face at times. From a graphical perspective, it is satisfactory, but only just so. From a game-play perspective, it lacks many key features which appear in popular pokie machines. That doesn’t mean that Buffalo Spirit doesn’t have some redeeming features – the trio of wilds certainly helps – but that won’t be enough to convince everyone to try their hand at this pokie.
