Buffalo Blitz Megaways - Slot of the Month

Dale Shelabarger

Our slot of the month for November is Buffalo Blitz Megaways – the third entry in Playtech’s popular slot series about even-toed ungulates. Featuring BGT’s famed engine, this six reel effort features four free spins modes, wild multipliers, four progressive jackpots and a potential max pay-out of 20,000x your stake. Just as well, because the game bears more than a passing resemblance to its predecessors. Accordingly, BBM is our slot of the month for November.


The game is set on the grassy plains of North America – the developers haven’t exactly pushed the boat out here though because it’s the same brooding landscape present in the previous two Buffalo Blitz slots.

In the background plays the same brooding orchestral lament too. Perhaps it’s an ode to the demise of the American bison population…perhaps not. So there’s not a great deal to report in terms of theme and visuals – BBM is very much like the others in the series as far as appearances go. But what about the game play and reel symbols?

How to Play Buffalo Blitz Megaways

Because of the BGT mechanic, the game comprises six reels instead of five with each one holding two to seven symbols. Above the second, third, fourth and fifth reels is a single row of reel positions which moves horizontally with each spin adding matching symbols when possible.

Along with playing card symbols, the reels are decorated with familiar renderings of various animals one might associate with North America, including a racoon, bear, moose, wild cat and of course a buffalo. The latter symbol is the most valuable, paying out 6x your stake if it lands six times in combination. It can also appear stacked on every reel.

A diamond wild is also in play which substitutes for all other symbols save the scatter. It appears on the second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth reels as well as the extra reel and can also randomly multiply wins by up to 10x in the free games round. To trigger said round, you’ll need to land the scatter four five or six times in any position.

Buffalo Blitz Megaways Bonus Features

Buffalo Blitz Megaways includes four bonus free games and a special jackpot blitz feature.

Free Games

Buffalo Blitz Megaways’ four free games features mark a major improvement on the previous titles. Each one has different benefits that tend to balance each other out. Once you’ve activated the feature, you’ll be able to choose from one of four variants. Here are the pros and cons of each one:

  • Mystery Free Games – 4, 5 or 6 scatters = 6 to 20 free spins, 2x to 10 Wild Multipliers
  • Buffalo Free Games – 4, 5 or 6 scatters = 6, 9 or 12 free spins, 4x, 5x or 10x Wild Multipliers
  • Thunder Free Games – 4, 5 or 6 scatters = 8, 12 or 16 free spins, 3x 4x or 6x Wild Multipliers
  • Blitz Free Games – 4, 5 or 6 scatters = 10, 15, or 20 free spins, 2x 3x or 5x Wild Multipliers

For all of the above games, the wild multiplier appears at random. Should multiple wilds appear, their values are combined. And if you manage to land at least three scatters, you’ll receive extra free spins – it’s possible here to land as many as 1000!

Jackpot Blitz

BBM is hooked up to Playtech’s Jackpot Blitz network which means that one of four jackpot bonus game can trigger randomly during a base game spin. Manage to activate it and the game area changes to a 5 x 4 reel set. This is populated with 20 diamond symbols that can reveal jackpot symbols. Reveal three of one jackpot type and you’ll receive the related pay-out.

  • Mini Jackpot = £50 Minimum
  • Minor Jackpot = £500 Minimum
  • Major Jackpot = £5000 Minimum
  • Blitz Jackpot = £100,000 Minimum


Despite bearing a very, very close resemblance to the other Buffalo Blitz entries, BBM is saved by its four free spin game modes, the Jackpot Blitz feature and of course the ever-popular Megaways mechanic. The RTP is also comparatively high too at above 96%. Throw in a maximum payout of 20,000x your stake and it’s easy to see why this latest effort from Playtech is proving extremely popular with players right now.

RTP: 96.29%, Minimum Stake: 0.10
