- Another new Megaways slot with a familiar theme
- No base game features but there is an ante bet
- Free spins bonus offers some decent multipliers
Big Buffalo Megaways slot is a new release from Skywind Group and unlike almost every other Megways game out there, there are no cascades which is an interesting decision and we’ll discuss that more later. You still have up to 117,649 ways to win of course, on a set of 6 reels. The design is quite basic though there’s nothing wrong with it and it’s nice and clear. All you need to do is spin the reels and try to get a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols which are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- 9 or 10
- Jack or Queen
- King or Ace
- Lynx or Fox
- Wolf or Eagle
There is a wild symbol as well which can appear on all but the first reel. It substitutes for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the scatter and has a special function in the free spins bonus as we’ll now see.

Big Buffalo Megaways Slot Bonuses and Features
Free Spins Bonus. To trigger this you’ll need 3 or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels during the base game. If you get just 3, you’ll get 8 free spins, but 4 will give you 15 free spins, 5 will give you 25 free spins and 6 will give you a whopping 100 free spins. You can also land 2 scatters during the bonus to get 5 more free spins, whilst 3-6 scatters will give you the same number of free spins as already mentioned. The main difference between the free spins and the base game is that now you can get multipliers on the wild symbols that appear. These multipliers can be either 2x, 3x or 5x, accumulating when several of them are part of the same winning combination.
Bonus Buy. Outside of the U.K., you have the option to buy the bonus, triggering it immediately.
Ante Bet. By increasing your stake by 20%, you can double your chances of triggering the main bonus.
Big Buffalo Megaways slot from Skywind Group is a fairly simple game but just one bonus to look forward to and nothing special about the base game, not even any cascades. Without a good feature combining with cascades though, such as increasing multipliers, it actually speeds up the game and means you can trigger the free spins bonus more quickly, especially using the ante bet, which is probably a good thing. With up to 100 free spins to be had, along with retriggers and multipliers up to 5x on each wild, it’s not a bad bonus but for a Megaways slot, a maximum win of 5,000x your stake isn’t very high. The RTP is though at 96.5%, so that’s a big bonus. All in all, it’s not as crazy as most Megaways games but actually it’s still pretty impressive, I just would have liked to have seen some extra base game features to make it more exciting.
