A stunning amount of 117,649 ways to win and an RTP of 96.50%.
Wildlife themed Megaways slot with a minimum bet of €/$/£ 0.10 and a maximum bet of €/$/£ 10. This slot perfectly suits the smaller and bigger gamblers.
4 scatter symbols will trigger the bonus game where you get to choose the number of free spins and win multiplier.
You’re able to buy the bonus game for 100x the size of your bet. The bonus game can be retriggered by hitting 3 scatter symbols.
Mystery symbols turn into the same symbol and cascading symbols increase the win multiplier in the bonus game.

Looking at the name of the Megaways slot, it’s quite obvious that the buffalo symbol is the highest value in the game. Besides the best symbol, the buffalo is also the wild symbol. When you hit 1 buffalo on each reel, 6 in total, you will win 50x the size of your bet. The bear is the 2nd best symbol in Buffalo Rising Megaways. The diamonds are the scatter symbols and the prairie symbols are the mystery symbols that will transform into the same symbols.
Buffalo Rising Megaways has everything you’re looking for in a Megaways slot. Blueprint really did do a great job and it’s only their 3rd slot in the Megaways series. The base game is a lot of fun, mainly because of the cascading symbols and the huge amount of Megaways. Having 117,649 ways to win, you might expect quite some connecting symbols and winning lines. This will make symbols cascade and new symbols will drop into your screen. One single spin can trigger many wins and that’s some good fun! Besides the cascading symbols, it’s always exciting to see the mystery symbols popping up. Since they transform into the same symbol, there is a possibility that you almost fill up your whole screen with the same symbol. Just like in Primal Megaways.
Hitting 4 purple and shining diamonds will trigger the bonus game in Buffalo Rising Megaways. That’s quite a few scatter symbols that you will need to get into the bonus game, so it’s quite difficult to exactly hit it. However, it’s definitely worth the grind, because the bonus game is a lot of fun. Every win will trigger a cascade which will increase your win multiplier by 1x. In the bonus game you will only need to hit 3 scatter symbols for a retrigger.

If you’re unable to hit 4 scatter symbols and thus unable to hit the bonus game, you can always buy the bonus game. The bonus buy feature in Buffalo Rising Megaways will cost you 100x the size of your bet which is fairly expensive. The average win will be below 100x your stake size, so be careful with this feature. You will end up losing money most of the time. Once you decided to buy the bonus game in Buffalo Rising Megaways, you get to choose between 4 different options:
1) 15 free spins in combination with a 1x multiplier.
2) 10 free spins in combination with a 10x multiplier.
3) 5 free spins in combination with a 15x multiplier.
4) A random amount of free spins and a random multiplier (1x, 10x or 15x).
Due to the latest changes in regulation the bonus buy feature isn’t available anymore in the UK.
Buffalo Rising Megaways is an average Megaways slot with all the features you would expect from a Megaways slot. The slot isn’t quite unique, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a fun slot to play. Buffalo Rising Megaways has a lot of features and that makes it an exciting and fun slot to play. Cascading symbols, mystery symbols, an unlimited win multiplier and many ways to win. The bonus game is perhaps the most fun in Buffalo Rising Megaways, especially because you’re able to pick the volatility of it. If you want to play it relatively safe, you can pick a higher amount of free spins and a lower multiplier. If you want to risk all or nothing, you will choose for a higher multiplier and less free spins. If you’re a real gambler, you’ll pick the mystery choice.
Just like almost any other Megaways or high volatile slot, Buffalo Rising Megaways shouldn’t be used to wager your bonus. The RTP of 96.50% is simply too low. There will be way too few small winnings to keep your balance healthy and increase your chances of wagering your bonus successfully. Pick less volatile slots with a higher RTP if you’re about to wager a bonus. Good luck!

Buffalo Rising has some serious potential, especially in the bonus game where you get to pick the volatility yourself. If you manage to get the most amount of free spins in combination with the highest multiplier via the mystery choice, you will end up having 15 free spins and a 10x multiplier. This is one of the best starts of a bonus game we’ve ever seen. Don’t be surprised by seeing multipliers of 20x or even 30x on your final spins. May the lady of luck be on your side.
We would advise to not play with a higher bet size than 1% of your deposit. For example if you deposited €/$/£ 300, don’t play with a higher stake of €/$/£ 3.
The bonus game in Buffalo Rising Megaways is fairly difficult to get since you need 4 scatter symbols. Don’t get tempted to buy the bonus game too often. Only buy the bonus game when your balance allows it.
Gamble responsibly and always gamble with money you can afford to lose. If you’re losing too much money, more money than you had in mind, consider taking a break for the day. Online casinos offer all sorts of tools to help you varying from deposits limits to self exclusions.
