Thundering Buffalo Introduction
Buffalo have an important role to play in Native American folklore, as they were an important source of food but were also hard to hunt. Indians, therefore, had many rituals, dances and prayers surrounding buffalo hunting. So, let's saddle up and head to the reservation to hunt for buffalo, in this beautifully-designed pokie.
It's a lovely natural spot with mountains and a river in the background, along with symbols featuring a campfire, traditional Indian icons and stampeding buffalo, as well as the standard playing cards. As well as playing for free, you can also place a wager, in the hope of winning some impressive amounts of cash. You will certainly get plenty of chances, with up to 720 winning combinations plus multipliers of up to 1000x.
You simply set the multiplier and number of credits for each multiplier, hit spin or autospin and watch those reels go round. If you decide to play for hard cash, you can bet from a minimum stake of 0.5 coins to a maximum of 500 per spin, and with so many ways to win, your chances are very good.
All fired up for action
Special features include a chance to win eight free spins if the Free Spins symbol turns up in any position on five consecutive reels, plus multiway wins for finding three or more of the symbols. The Thundering Buffalo are the most rewarding, with 1000x your stake for finding five. The wigwam offers 300x for five, while five 10s hands over 50x.
There is also a scatter and a wild card to look out for. The free spins bonus is an entertaining addition because it uses different reels and uses the same multiway bet and bet multiplier as the initial game. You can get up to 240 free spins, which is a handsome reward indeed, for hunting the buffalo. As your reels spin, the evocative music takes you back to a time when hunting was the only way to survive.
The creative team has designed some lovely symbols which spin and light up on winning paylines.
Thundering Buffalo will appeal to many different types of players. Seasoned gamers will enjoy the big money prizes, while beginners or those who prefer to play for free can enjoy the great graphics and different bonus games, as well as watching those reels spin. It's a fun game on many levels, and gets a thunderous round of applause from pokie lovers at Online Pokies 4U.
