Buffalo King slot machine can be found in casinos offering Pragmatic Play software. Pragmatic Play is one of the newest developers of slot games on the market, but their products are polished and professional in feel and performance. In the standard version, Pragmatic Play publishes RTP / House Edge information for its slot machines in the game help file. For a provider that is currently not licensed in the UK market and therefore not obligated to publish these numbers, this is a significantly progressive step. The casino edge for Buffalo King is 3.94%.
Buffalo King is a 6-reel, 4-symbol-high game. Instead of paylines, you generate wins when you place matching symbols on 3 adjacent reels, starting from the left side.
Buffalo King slot is made in the North American theme. Thanks to this, you’ll get a variety of animals, from buffalo to bald eagle to cougar, all of which can be found wandering or flying in the Arizona desert, making up the backdrop for this slot.
Wild – “Red peak” is a wild symbol that replaces all symbols except scatters. Wild symbols only appear on reels 2-6.
Bonus – The bonus symbol is “Buffalo Coin”. 3 or more of them anywhere on the reels will activate the free spins feature.
Buffalo King Megaways is a cascading video slot with six reels and up to eight rows as well as 324 to 200,704 ways to win.

The game has maximum volatility (5/5) with an RTP range between 96.49 – 96.52% depending on whether the Ante Bet is activated while using the Bonus Buy option will result in an RTP of 96.50%. Beware, some operators might offer the game with a lower RTP setting in the 94.xx% range. Always make sure to read the help files to find out which version you will be playing.
The rugged plateau at sunset from the original Buffalo King slot serves again as a fitting backdrop to the large game window encased in a wooden frame. Buffalos together with wolves, eagles and other wild animals found in those regions dominate the reels while a rather soothing soundtrack overpaints the high volatility of the game.
Free Spins – 3, 4, 5 or 6 Buffalo Coin symbols anywhere on the reels will bring 8, 15, 25 or 100 free spins, respectively. During the free spins, if you get 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 Buffalo coins, you will receive 5, 8, 15, 25 or 100 additional free spins, respectively. Wilds will also have a multiplier equal to x2, x3 or x5 of the bet, which will be determined randomly.
Buffalo King is a solid slot with all the hallmarks of a Pragmatic Play release. After successful projects with slots like Wolf Gold and Mustang Gold, it comes as no surprise that we find ourselves with a release like Buffalo King. Consistent with the aforementioned slots, I expected this to do well. However, this does not mean that I think this is necessarily a great job. Sure, it looks good, but you don’t get much out of it. Free spins and wilds are about that, but free spins are re-triggered and you can, if you’re really lucky, get a lot of them. The casino edge is ok, but again nothing special.
