Playtech is one of the of the biggest and oldest software companies in the world, that set the foundations for the industry as we know it today. They ran the biggest poker and bingo network in the world, but their ace in the sleeve were and still are the great video pokie games from their collection.
We almost forgot about them since lately we didn’t have a chance to see some of their new releases, but we finally have a chance to see what their latest video pokie game, Buffalo Blitz, is all about.
When we first saw the game we were a bit disappointed by the low level visual effects and symbols Buffalo Blitz has. We expected a much higher visual level from a provider like Playtech, since their branded pokies are one of the best looking in the industry.
After we had a chance to see everything Buffalo Blitz has to offer the low visual details became comprehensible. To be more precise, Playtech created this game according to the exact design and visual appearance of Raging Rhino.
For those of you that don’t know, Raging Rhino is one of the best video pokie games Williams Interactive has to offer and many players try to wake up the Rhinos on the reels every day. The same low level visual details are used on both games, so it seems Playtech wanted to copy the project all the way
What We love
We love that Playtech decided to stay true to the original Raging Rhino design. Buffalo Blitz has the same 4,096 ways to win design, with 4 rows, 6 reels and bets ranging from $0.40 up to $100 per spin. The reason why its predecessor achieved such glory lies in the overall design and the free spins bonus.
The Buffalo is the highest paying symbol in this game and it can come stacked across all reels as the rest of the symbols. Players can win anywhere from 8 to 100 free spins if a minimum of 3 scatters land on the reels and with each extra triggering scatter the free spins awarded increase proportionally.
Additional free spins can be won during the bonus starting from 5 for 2 extra scatters and ending with 100 for the maximum 6 extra scatters on the reels. The Wild Diamond will come with a random multiplier from x2, x3 to x5 on each extra Wild Diamond symbol that substitutes in a win and can create massive payouts in return.
What we Do not Like
As its African relative Buffalo Blitz is a great video pokie game with an attractive bonus feature and the potential to pay big. Nothing was left to chance and the game is perfect the way it is now.
If big wins are worth chasing, then Buffalo Blitz is worth playing. We are happy to see this game go live over the Playtech network, as watching the rhinos run on Raging Rhino was taken away from us when WMS instituted the new country limitations. With Buffalo Blitz we will once again have the pleasure to enjoy one of our favorite games of all times, Raging Rhino.
