- A new Megaways version of Buffalo King
- Megaways mechanic adds lot of ways to win
- A low maximum payout is very disappointing
Buffalo King Megaways slot from Pragmatic Play is a new version of the original Buffalo King, a popular game with some nice features. The addition of Megaways could be a welcome change for some, and most players would be excited in thinking that this will increase the max win. Unfortunately, this is not the case and the max win here is just 5,000x. This is well below the average for a Megaways game and it’s very disappointing to see. However, let’s go over the features in detail to see what’s going on.
The layout here is typical with 6 reels and a top row with only 4 reels. You just need a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols which are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- 10 or Jack
- King or Ace
- Moose or Wolf
There is a wild symbol as well which substitutes for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the scatter. It appears only on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.

Buffalo King Megaways Slot Bonuses and Features
Tumble. Being a Megaways slot, this game has a tumble feature meaning all winning symbols are removed from the reels to allow new ones to fall in, within the same spin. This continues to happen until there are no more wins.
Free Spins Bonus. To trigger this you’ll need at least 4 sitter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels at the same time. 4 scatters will give you 12 free spins and a 5x payout, 5 will give you 17 free spins and a 20x payout while 6 will give you 22 free spins and a 100x payout. During the bonus, all wilds that land can have a multiplier on them up to 5x. When part of a win, this multiplier is accumulated in a tumble multiplier indicator. At the end of a tumble sequence, the accumulated multiplier applies to the total win of that sequence. Finally, you can get another 5 free spins by landing 3 more scatters during the bonus.
Bonus Buy. Outside of the U.K., players have the option to buy the bonus to trigger it immediately.
Buffalo King Megaways slot from Pragmatic Play may looks and sound like another familiar Megaways slot, and you’d probably expect it to have an unlimited win multiplier like many other. However, the bonus here is different and very interesting. All wilds in the bonus can have a multiplier up to 5x that not only combines with other wilds for bigger wins, but can also be accumulated for huge payouts at the end of a tumble sequence. At least, the payouts could be huge if the maximum win wasn’t 5,000x. For a Megaways title, this is very low and for a bonus like this it would have been great to see it well above 10,000x. In fact, the original version of this game had a much higher win potential, so lowering it for a Megaways game doesn’t sit right with me. It’s a real shame as it had the potential to be a great Megaways slot, but the max win is disappointing and will certainly put some players off.
