Buffalo King Megaways slot review (Pragmatic Play)

Buffalo King is the 8th Pragmatic Play Megaways slot and is a sequel of their Buffalo King slot. Buffalo King was noteworthy, if not only because of its tremendous win potential (with a max win of an astounding 93,750x the bet).

Buffalo King Megaways slot: another Megaways slot with some compelling features

This version is much more modest, though, which is a bit of a surprise, as we tend to associate Megaways slots with an enormous win potential.

Not here. The max win is capped at 5,000x the bet. This slot will not get on the lists of the most volatile Pragmatic Play slots or the Pragmatic Play slots with the highest maximum payout. Not even close!

Is that a disadvantage? Not necessarily.

Not all players seek these highly volatile slots. This slot is designed for those seeking gaming fun with a bit of win potential. But not at all extremes.


Number of paylines: up to 200,704 Megaways

RTP and variance: 96.52% (main game), 96.49% (Bonus Buy), Medium to High variance

Maximum win: 5,000 x the bet or  $€0.625 million

Betting range: $€0.20 – $€125

Bonus features: Free Spins, Buy a Bonus feature, Ante Bet variant

Casino Hipster verdict: Hot, but not HOT. Some original features in the free spins with Wilds with multipliers.

Gameplay and Features

It’s a Megaways slot with the usual six reels with 2 to 7 symbols and an additional row with 4 symbols on top. That brings us to a maximum of 200,704 Megaways (7x8x8x8x8x7).

This slot has (as most Megaways slots) the usual Avalanche (or Tumbling) feature. You gain a free re-spin following a win, where winning symbols explode and make way for new symbols.

The high-paying symbols are the lovely wild animals like the Buffalo, Raptor, Panther, Wolf and Moose. The lows are the 10, J, Q, K and A.

The Wild symbol is a rocky mountain, and the Bonus symbols are the Golden Buffalos.

How do you get the free spins?

You win 12, 17 or 22 free spins with 4, 5 or 6 Bonus Symbols.  In addition, you also get cash wins of 5x, 20x or 100x.

If you manage to spin three or more Bonus Symbols during the free spins, you’ll retrigger another five free spins.

You can also choose to buy these (cost is 100x the original bet) with Pragmatic Play’s Buy Free Spins feature. Pragmatic Play likes to offer this feature more and more often. It’s already their 20th slot with the Bonus Buy feature.

The Free Spins

You’ll see that the Wild symbols come with an x2, x3 or x5 multiplier during the free spins round.

If these wilds are part of a win, its multiplier is accumulated in a so-called tumble multiplier indicator, which you see at the top-left corner. These wilds multiply with each other.

At the end of the tumble sequence, the accumulated multiplier applies to the total win of that tumble sequence. If (for example) you managed to gather three Wilds with an x5, x5 and an x3 multiplier, you’re talking about a 75x multiplier. So, there is more than enough potential for some big wins!

Two mathematical models – The Regular Variant or the Bet Multiplier Variant

If you play the Regular Variant, the betting range is between $€0.20 – $€100. You can choose to double your odds for winning the free spins with Pragmatic Play’s Ante Bet (Multiplier Variant). In that case, the betting range is between $€0.25 – $€125.

Buffalo King Megaways slot – Payout percentage (RTP) is 96.49% to 96.52%

The RTP of the main game is 96.49% (ante bet) to 96.52% (regular variant) which is more or less around the average of all Pragmatic Play slots.

If you choose to use the Bonus Buy Feature, you’ll play with an RTP of 96.50%.

Buffalo King Megaways slot – the variance (volatility) is high

Pragmatic Play rates the volatility with a score of 5 out of 5, but given the max win of 5.000x only, I tend to go for medium to high.
