The wombat says: Now we love the great outdoors (being the kind of wild little critters we are) and the idea of taking a spin on a White Buffalo slot, a game inspired by the icy wilderness, was a tempting change from the heat of the warren at Wombat Towers. This is a Microgaming title- you know those people behind the What on Earth slot, Tomb Raider and Jurassic World among others. And let’s not forget that monster jackpot game- you know Mega Moolah with it’s huge pool of winnings.
Here, the massive white buffalo of the game’s title, is king. This animal is considered as a sacred creature in Native American culture and he is an eye-catching beast. This game’s grand scale and beautiful creatures set a serene theming for this slot. Now I might not be as cool as the big animals of this chilly game, but I am still going to done my scarf and mittens and prepare to try my luck on the reels!
Look and Feel
This slot has worked hard to create that wilderness feel; and done it really well. Compare this to older games like the Tunzamunni slot and you will appreciate just how far things have moved on.
The whole game looks like you’ve been transported to the tundra in a snow storm, and you do feel far away from the everyday. The reels are set against a beautiful snowy forest scene, and on each side of the frame are two thermometers which double up to set the number of pay lines you want to play, and remind us of the seriously arctic temperatures us and our animal pals face.
There’s even a mini snow drift on top of the reels -so don’t forget to pack those warm socks! The soundtrack also contributes to the feeling of this frozen world; it is a combination of a jazzy flute and some traditional wind chimes- it’s all oddly atmospheric and strangely enjoyable!
White Buffalo is a slot with 5 reels, 3 rows and 25 paylines slot. The high value icons of the game are a whole host of cold-weather animals including a moose, elk, ram and the big boy himself – the white buffalo. Meanwhile, the lower value icons are the 9, 20, J, Q, K & A playing cards card all done up in wintry pastel tones.
The Wild is a nice Native American style drawing of a buffalo and the Scatter is the game’s icon; a white buffalo skull with the words ‘White Buffalo’.
Free Spins Bonus
The Big Game Free Spin feature that is randomly triggered during play is good fun and a hit with this wombat. Suddenly you’ll get 6 free spins cropping up – and when you do this feature is signalled by a totally dramatic stampede of white buffalos galloping noisily across the reels. Now the Muse, Elk and Ram symbols will be transformed into the White Buffalo symbols. This feature can also be randomly re-triggered and you’ll be awarded another 6x spins.
This game looks very nice with its crisp graphics which are atmospheric (despite being largely made up of white and ice blues) and the icons are very well presented. This wombat loved the game’s theme and the winter landscape, plus that stampede of buffalo was a great little addition to base game play. I’ll be back to visit my wild cousins again very soon!
