Buffalo King Megaways Slot Review – Pragmatic Play
It has been a couple of days since my last Pragmatic Play slot review, which is for the game ‘Hot Fiesta’. This game has a max win of 5,000x and a Free Spins feature with sticky roaming wilds on offer. Today we are learning all about an exciting game sequel. This slot is titled ‘Buffalo King Megaways’, which is set to release April 29th across all sites.
The original game ‘Buffalo King’ was released in late 2019, with an impressive max win on offer and exciting gameplay. The new re-release has the infamous Megaways mechanic implemented to improve the game’s performance overall. With a North American theme like the original, known animal species from the area as premium symbols such as the Buffalo.
Buffalo King Megaways has a setup of 6 reels by 2 – 8 rows, this includes up to 200,704 Megaways. This slot is high variance with a set RTP of 96.52% and max win capped at 5,000x. You can bet from £0.20 – £125.
Buffalo King Megaways Pay Table & Symbols
There are 12 symbols in total, this includes 5 low-paying symbols. These are represented by 10, J, Q, K, and A. There are also 5 premium symbols, these are represented by Moose, wolves, cougars, eagles, and buffalo. In addition to these regular symbols is a wild symbol and bonus scatter symbol. The highest paying symbol is the buffalo premium, which pays 40x for 6 across a pay line. Wilds substitute for all symbols except scatters and appear on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5. Symbols part of winning combinations will disappear. allowing new symbols to fall in to replace any empty spaces. New symbols which fall in place are the same size as the initial spin result before tumbles. Tumbles continue until no more winning combinations appear from a tumble.
Buffalo King Megaways Features

During spins, wild symbols hit with a random multiplier of 2x, 3x, or 5x. Every time a wild is part of a winning combination its multiplier is increased. Wilds can multiply between each other. Landing 3 or more bonus scatters during a Free Spin will award 5 additional Free Spins. Special reels are in play during this feature and there is no limit to the number of retriggers.
The Free Spins bonus feature can be instantly triggered from a Bonus Buy, if available in your country. For the price of 100x your chosen stake and a random number of scatters on the trigger once purchased.
Bet Multiplier 20x – Normal Play.
Bet Multiplier 25x – The chance to trigger the Free Spins feature is doubled, more scatter symbols are present on the reel set. Paytable is not affected and pays as for 20x bet multiplier.
Overall, I think this slot is well made by the studio but could have a higher max win. The original game has a higher variance on offer compared to this new re-release which is a surprise. With a max win of 5,000x on offer and the Megaways mechanic. Be sure to try out the game for yourself on release. Check out our exclusive casino offers.
