Boulder Bucks is the latest video pokie game release by Barcrest Software. It is designed as a simple 10 pay line, 5 reel pokie with decent animations and a great background music. This, along with the prehistoric theme, give the game an overall cartoon look making it very fun to play.
Designed as a medium variance pokie game, Boulder Bucks, awards small to medium wins during base play and has the potential to hit big during the bonus round. The bonus feature comes with several choices and players can choose the one they like the most.
What We love
We love the design and the theme of the game. The symbols have a cartoon look and you can play for hours without getting bored. We especially like the free spins bonus feature. All of the features have the potential to hit big, but our top pick are the last two.
Sticky expanding wilds and even a full pay line of wilds is definitely a great feature for any bonus game. We also love the fact that you can choose other features if you don’t like what you won. This gives you a few chance to win big and is a great addition to the bonus round.
What we Do not Like
Overall the entire game looks great. We can only say that we don’t quite like the Big Bet game where you need 20-30 for the 5 consecutive spins. This feature does make the bonus round easier to trigger but if you don’t manage to trigger it you are left with a big loop on your bankroll.
From what we saw so far, yes we can recommend Boulder Bucks as a great pokie game. Still we have to say that you need a bigger bankroll and high bets if you want to win big on this game. According to the software provider the game RTP value increases while you play bets over $2. This is a lot for the average low roller gamblers, but you can certainly get a lot more in return.
If you manage to trigger the bonus round on a high bet you can easily boost you bankroll with thousands of dollars. The free spins are really great, especially the Saber Tooth and Pterodactyl bonus round. In the first you can win 3 full central reels with wilds until the free spins end. The number of total spins is only 6, but all you need is 2 or 3 free spins with wilds to get a 500 x bet win or more depending on what other symbols land on the reels.
The second feature is also great because you can get 1, 2 or ever 3 rows with wild symbols if you get the Pterodactyl to land on the last 3 fields in each 3 rows. You can definitely see the potential the game has in providing mega wins. If this happens on a big bet, Boulder Bucks will definitely become one of your favorite video pokie games. We can only recommend that you try the game for real and hope for many big wins to land on your screen.
