Buffalo Power: Christmas Slots
Buffalo and Christmas… not the most obvious combination, you must admit! However, it looks like many software developers are giving their best slots the festive touch and releasing new versions in time for the festive season.
So, we decided to check out Buffalo Power: Christmas here for you. Saddle up and let's see what's in store for you today.
Which developer has this game in their collection?
This slot comes from Playson, so you can expect the same Buffalo Power potential with a Christmassy feel this time around.
Demo action assured
We found the demo game to play quite easily online, so this does prove to be the ideal way to get some action from the slot.
What's the theme?
You can expect buffalo to appear here, along with some glowing orbs (you may remember those), and of course the occasional festive touch as well.
What did we make of the design?
It has the wild setting you might have expected, along with a few snowflakes coming down. The title has a Santa hat on one of the buffalo horns, and there are candy canes, Christmas baubles, and ribbons festooned around as well.
How to play Buffalo Power Christmas
There are five reels here, with the usual three icons landing per reel when you get underway. The game has four jackpots too, going from Mini to Grand. You'll see these above the reels as you play.
There are two wilds to look out for, each appearing as stacked wilds. The regular wild has a Santa hat on and replaces everything apart from the scatter symbol, bonus symbol, and power symbol. The other stacked wild is a 2x multiplier wild. It looks identical to the regular wild except that the buffalo eyes glow… and it only appears during free games.
The bonus symbol is the glowing ball, while the power symbol shows a golden image of the buffalo. Finally, the scatter is a mountain with lightning crackling over the top of it.
Fixed paylines in action in Buffalo Power Christmas
There are 20 of them, and their fixed nature means you need to play the lot on every spin.
How to bet on the game
You need to begin with 20 cents per spin at the lowest end of the scale, which means one cent per line… a penny slot. The largest bet you can go for is $100.
The paytable makes sense of all the rules
Reading through the paytable tells you all about the game and how everything works. This is sensible to use as a starting position if you're new to the game.
Bonus trigger in Buffalo Power Christmas
The bonus and power symbols can work together here. You need any combination of six or more of the two symbols to trigger the bonus. The symbols show multipliers between 1x and 10x. They only pay out during the bonus and not in the base game.
The idea is that all triggering symbols stick to their positions. You receive three respins at no charge to see if you can find any more. Whenever one or more do appear, those stick as well. If you want to scoop one of the jackpots, you need to get enough power symbols during the bonus game to equal one of the jackpots.
Meanwhile, if you manage to fill the grid with bonus and power symbols when the bonus round ends, you'll receive double the total prize garnered from the multipliers on the reels.
Free spins from scatter symbols
Yes, these unlock with the usual trigger, with three scatters bringing you eight free games. The scatter only lands on the middle three reels.
RTP remains unknown
We didn't find any information on this in the slot game, and we did check every area too.
Our rating for Buffalo Power Christmas
The festive link is tenuous at best here, but if you like the regular slot and you fancy playing it during the festive season, you may want to switch to this version instead. We're giving it eight out of 10.
What's the largest prize multiplier?
Five power symbols during the bonus would reveal a 100x prize. Meanwhile, the grand jackpot is worth 500x your bet.
Will you begin with a shot at the demo game?
We think you should, if only to see whether this game is Christmassy enough for you.
Play for real from 20 cents per play
While this is a penny slot, the fixed nature of the paylines means you do need to bet 20 cents per spin. Make sure that fits your budget before you begin.
There is also a mobile version of this slot
Playson delivers the game to all players by including an Android- and iOS-friendly version of the game if you'd rather play that.
