The wombat says: Cool Buck from Microgaming is another one of their classic-looking old school fruit machine slots. It’s a simple game (compared to the Goldwyn’s Fairies slot or Jurassic World for example), but don’t let the 3 reels and rudimentary game play scare you off, although this slot might not come with the kind of bells and whistles we’re used to nowadays, but there’s still a very good chance of scooping some sizeable payouts. Let’s meet this Cool Buck guy!
Look and Feel
Buck himself is the game’s main character. But is he cool? Well, not really. He’s basically been created by rolling up a dollar bill, chucking on some arms and legs and then throwing on a smiley face and a set of big teeth for good measure. Groundbreaking 3D graphics it ain’t. You’ll find your reels on a background of a big old dollar bill, while the reels themselves take up the top left hand corner of the screen. You’ll also find the paytable over on the right hand side. Simple, but it does the job.
Cool Buck is a 3 reel slot with 3 rows and 10 pay lines. The Cool Buck dude also stars in a later 5 reel slot by the way, but we digress- back to the classic. As you might have guessed, this slot likes to keep things simple, so your betting options are nice and flexible. Minimum bets start at 25p and go all the way up to the £100, so there’s something here for all types of player.
Your symbols on the reels are made up of very traditional fruitie icons, and include juicy cherries, the single, double and triple bars, lucky sevens and golden dollar signs. So sort of like a Lucky Links slot type deal, but even more traditionally put together.
The wild symbol in Cool Buck slot is represented by the dollar sign. This cheeky symbol will replace all other symbols on the reels and help you form extra winning combos.
FYI Wombat fans: remember that when it comes to the wild symbol only one winning combination is paid out per pay line, so if you land multiple combos with wilds you’ll only be paid out from the one that gives you the biggest win. And speaking of which, the biggest payout you could land is in Cool Buck slot is 6000x your wager, and that’s for landing 3x of these gold dollar icons on any of the paylines.
Cool Buck Free Spins
Sadly, this game comes with zero bonuses and no extra features at all. Well we did tell you it was a simple slot… You’ll just have to pay your chunky wins in the base game instead. A scatter symbol would have been a nice addition, but on the whole, Cool Buck does ok with just the wild symbol.
It’s worth noting Wombat fans, that Cool Buck slot is a pretty high variance game (just like most other 3-reel slots), which means it doesn’t pay out all that often, but when it does, it really DOES. So make sure you have a bankroll big enough to deal with the no win spins. Or simply keep your wagers in the low side… We recommend you give it a go, you might well be surprised.
