Check Out Playtech’s Newest Creation Buffalo Blitz Slot
Many of us thought that we wouldn’t be seeing a new Playtech slot for a while now, with the casino software giants so busy with their Age of Gods slots, and their expected takeover from the Marvel progressive jackpot franchise.
However, Buffalo Blitz is proof that Playtech don’t have all of their eggs in one basket.
The new video slot is not exactly going to set the online casino world alight, though. Buffalo Blitz contains a theme which won’t appeal to everyone, and its imagery and graphics leave much to be desired.
Perhaps the Age of Gods series is Playtech’s primary focus, because it doesn’t look as thought too much effort was put into the Buffalo Blitz slot’s design.
Fortunately, some effort has gone into the game’s special features, even if they are not quite as endearing as we might like them to be. It really is as case of make up your own mind, when it comes to the Buffalo Blitz slot.
What we love
Playtech have gone out of their way to kit this slot out with plenty of paylines? What’s plenty? How does four thousand sound? 4,096 to be precise. For these paylines, you will only end up wagering between 0.40 and 200.00 a pop, and that is nothing, really.
We’re also quite in love with the free spins bonus game. The free spins feature in the Buffalo Blitz slot is straight-forward, run-of-the-mill stuff, with players able to enjoy multipliers worth up to 5x, as well as plenty of rocking free spins themselves.
What we do not like
We don’t actually like most of the rest. The jackpot seems woefully low in comparison with other slots that cost at least 0.40 a pop. The stacked buffalo icons are also a bit of a pain.
They are designed to help you bag the “jackpot” by being stacked. However, they tend to get in the way more than anything else, and that can make you quite mad.
There is nothing worse for a slot than infuriating its players. There is every possibility that this will put you off so much that you don’t want to give it another go.
Can Buffalo Blitz deliver the goods then? Well, as we’ve said, it depends on the type of player you are. Some players are going to be so obsessed with the 4,096 paylines that the rest of the slot won’t matter to them.
Personally, we like to get a little more meat for our 0.40 spin. Aside from its paylines, you can’t help but feel that Buffalo Blitz is threadbare. It also looks as though it was designed as a rush job, to get something out to compete with other developers (such WMS Gaming’s suspiciously similar Raging Rhino slot).
If that is the case, then many players may not give the Buffalo Blitz slot the time of day. As we’ve said, whether Buffalo Blitz presses your buzzer really depends on what you’re looking for in a slot.
