Buffalo Power Megaways slot REVIEW

Buffalo Power Megaways ReviewWhile it’s too early to conclude after only 2 Megaways releases, it seems that Playson plans to inject their earlier releases with BTG’s magic brew, instead of coming up with something brand new. Buffalo Power Megaways is more or less identical to the original Buffalo Power Hold and Win, but you’ll benefit from a somewhat improved math model and 46,656 potential win ways.

The backdrop looks almost like an oil painting of the iconic Arizona canyon bathing in the sunset, and bigger hits come with a sudden thunderstorm. The base game offers nothing but wilds, and these come with 2x multipliers in the bonus round. In addition, you have the Hold & Win feature, which Playson uses in a lot of games, where jackpots up to 2,000x can be landed by collecting Power symbols.

Buffalo Power Megaways Features

The Buffalo wild steps in for all other pay symbols to help you form winning combos, and it’s also the highest paying symbol in the game. Land 5 buffalo wilds on a payline, and you’ll pocket 50x your stake. That’s it for the base game really, as there is no cascading reels feature in this game.

The Bonus Round is triggered by landing at least 3 scatters anywhere on the same spin. More precisely, you win 12, 17, 22 or 27 free spins when you land 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters anywhere in sight. You can retrigger the feature the same way, and the buffalo wild comes with a 2x multiplier during the bonus round.

You need a total combo of at least 6 cash symbols and buffalo power symbols to trigger the Hold & Respins feature. The triggering symbols become sticky, and you get 3 respins for starters. Only the cash symbols and power symbols will land during the feature, and they also become sticky and reset the respins tally to 3 again. The cash symbols are worth between 1x and 10x your stake.

The golden bull Power Symbol coins are how you win the jackpots. The first one is already present from the feature trigger, and you need 1 to 5 more to win a jackpot. The jackpots are worth 2, 5, 150, 500 or 2,000 times your stake, and if you fill the screen with cash and power symbols, your total winnings are subject to a 2x multiplier.

The 200 Spins Buffalo Power Megaways Experience

We land a “mega win” pretty early on in the session, and then we grind along for a good while until the Streak Respins feature triggers at 2:35 into the 4-minute highlights video. We did not manage to trigger the bonus round this time, but you can see for yourself how we fared in the Hold & Win feature by hitting the play button.

Review Summary

Playson seems confident in churning out uninspired Megaways versions of their older games, although, to be fair, Buffalo Power Megaways is only the second effort with BTG’s licenced engine so far. Visually and featurewise it’s very similar to the original Buffalo Power Hold and Win, but you now get the benefit of up to 46,656 win ways.

That usually doesn’t make much of a dent to be honest, but it helps that both the potential, the RTP and the volatility has been upped a bit in this version. Payouts up to 4,806x were observed in 500 million spins, which is less than half the usual Megaways potential. The Streak Respins feature is pretty standard stuff, and so is the bonus round. Is it better than the forgettable original release? Yeah, sure, but it can hardly compete in the Megaways genre.

If you appreciate Buffalo Power Megaways you should also try:

Buffalo Power Hold and Win - is the original Playson title, and it comes with medium volatility, making it a bit less brutal than the megaways version. The bonus round comes with 2x wilds, but it’s mostly about the hold & win jackpot feature.

Legend of Cleopatra Megaways - is Playson’s debut release with BTG’s popular engine, and it comes with a top sliding reel and up to 200,704 win ways. The main features are collapsing symbols, scarab collection multiplier and a bonus round where you can win up to 6,584x your stake.

Big Buffalo Megaways - is a steroid-injected version of Skywind’s original title, and it comes with up to 117,649 win ways. Wilds can land on reels 2 to 6, and these come with up to 5x multipliers during free spins. The volatility is medium, and you can win up 5,000x your stake.
