We love the Wild West games very much. After all, we've been dreaming about putting a proper hat on our heads, picking up a polished hunting rifle, and tucking a few loaded colts under our belt since we were kids. It's probably because of this nostalgia that we can be more forgiving than ever with games like Synot Games' Buffalo Hunt. Simply, the atmosphere has its own charm and when a herd of buffalo roars on the reels, you will forgive the creators for even minor shortcomings.
The Game’s visuals
It's not usual for us to criticize the visuals in Synot Games games. And we will not make an exception this time, although we probably have more comments than ever. Especially the graphics, which are average compared to other slots from this studio. The simple template, minimal animation on the reels, and, in our opinion, the not-so-good images of some of the symbols didn't make a great impression on us. But thankfully it's still a long way from the graphics of Amusnet's games. However, in order not to sound too critical, we must praise the sounds. These are awesome and whoever picked them did a great job. Hoof stomps, rifle shots, and even Indian tunes will entertain you.
Basic game properties
Buffalo Hunt is a very simple online slot, but with up to 1024 ways to win. That's a pretty good portion of chances to win for 5 reels and 4 rows. Subjectively, we felt that it was won quite often. You must land at least 3 symbols on 3 reels in a row to qualify and be paid a win. They do not have to follow any lines, any combination of at least three adjacent symbols is sufficient.
The simplicity of the gameplay goes hand in hand with the simplicity of the controls. Synot Games' slot machines are not unnecessarily overcomplicated and that's why players like them. Keep it simple also applies here. The controls for the Buffalo Hunt slot machine are located at the bottom of the screen and the entire slot is controlled by clicking the mouse. You can choose the total bet amount and then how the reels are spun. You can either manually spin every single spin, or you can choose an automatic spin in the form of the Autoplay feature. If you choose this method of spinning the reels, you must choose how many spins are automatically spun. There is also infinity. But beware, there are no upgrade features, so you have to keep track of your game budget yourself.
Lest we forget, after each winning round of Buffalo Hunt, two more options are added - two buttons. One will deposit money into your piggy bank, i.e. your account, the other will send you to try your luck with the Gamble feature. In this game, as usual, you have to guess whether the color of the turned card is red or black. You hit, you take double the bet amount (the original win), you miss, and the win is gone. However, after each successful round, you can deposit half of the amount into your account.
Bonus features of the slot machine
In the bonuses, it's no glory, but it's not a flop either. The Buffalo Hunt slot machine is tied with Playtech's Buffalo Blitz slot machine. As is tradition, there’s the classical duo of the Wild and Scatter symbols.
The Wild symbol works in the Buffalo Hunt online slot machine in the standard way as a joker replacing symbols that are missing from a winning combination. It shows up on reels 2, 3, and 4. In the base game, it doesn't stand out for anything else, but during freespins, it shows other magic as well. In these, he can multiply the winnings achieved by his action by 2 or 3 times.
You might like the Scatter symbol a little more. This gets you into the free spins mentioned above. However, you must spin it at least 3 times on the reels of the Buffalo Hunt slot machine to get 8 freespins. You get 15 free spins for 4 Scatter symbols, and if the golden coin Scatter symbol shines 5 times on the reels, you get up to 20 free spins. However, the authors have been generous and so the Scatter symbol during the freespin game just needs to be spun 2 times to get an additional 5 free spins. It's a pleasure, isn't it?
