Saddle up for high-volatility reel ride through the vast American plains on the slot from Pragmatic Play. Buffalo King will take you to the dusty and rugged plateau where huge herds of these majestic bison herds were roaming in great numbers in a not very distant past. They now dominate on a 6×4 reel set in super stacks together with wild substitutions and a free spins round with total wild multipliers of up to x3,125 that can lead to wins of up 93,750 times your bet.

A rugged plateau at sunset serves as a fitting backdrop to a large game window encased in a wooden frame. Buffalos together with wolves, eagles and other wild animals found in those regions dominate the reels while a rather soothing soundtrack overpaints the high volatility of the game.
All pay symbols can appear stacked, except scatters and wilds. They start at the low end with card royals from 9 through to A, awarding 2x to 3x your bet for a single six of a kind. The premiums are moose, wolves, pumas, eagles and buffalos. Hit six across the reels to win 5x to 7.5x your stake.
A rock formation marked with the word itself is the wild symbol, appearing on reels two to six only and substituting for all regular pay symbols. A golden buffalo coin marked with ‘Bonus’ acts as the scatter.
Buffalo King Slot Features
While this Pragmatic creation shares similarities with other slots such as Raging Rhino from WMS or Raging Reindeer from iSoftbet, it has enough differences to set itself apart from the probably over two dozen games that have the multiplier wilds at the core of the win potential.
Still, the gameplay is as on the other slots geared towards the Free Spins feature. While you can hit sizeable mega wins in the base game, the potential goes mental in the bonus round. Hitting three, four, five or six scatters anywhere on the reels in one spin will trigger 8, 15, 25 and 100 free spins respectively. These can be retriggered indefinitely with two to six scatters yielding an additional 5 to 100 free spins on each occasion.
Once it starts, saddle up and squeeze your lucky charm as the bonus round is highly volatile. Any wild landing on a free spin will have a multiplier of x2, x3 or x5 attached. However, only the winning combinations containing a wild will benefit from the multiplier. More than one in a combo will be multiplied by each other, leading to a maximum win multiplier of x3,125 if x5 wilds land on all reels from two to six. The maximum win of 93,750 times the bet requires a full stack of buffalos on reel one and an x5 multiplier on all the other reels.
Well, fans of Raging Rhino or similar slots, if you thought it wasn’t possible to trump those games, here it is. Even more volatile, bigger multiplier and immensely higher win potential. No doubt, this Buffalo King brings even more to the table than all the others, however, only time will tell whether it will truly show its potential. No doubt, if it does, we will find the screenshots in the forums.
