Game description

Bison Bonanza Slot (Blueprint)

Bison Bonanza Slot (Blueprint)Bison Bonanza is one of the latest slots by Blueprint, and it’s a slot that promises a lot, especially to real money players.

This game comes with the usual feature and bonuses common in slots of this genre, and the high volatility suggests that it’s a high payout title.

We will learn more about all these and much more in this heist review:

Game Set-Up

Bison Bonanza is quite large, and the slot offers a 6x5 reels grid, where Scatter Pays will come in to create a winning combination.

Besides its unusual Scatter Pays mechanism, Bison Bonanza offers other features like the cascading reels, free spins with multipliers of up to 500x multipliers, and scatters.

Betting and Prizes

I could spin the reels for just $0.20 per spin, but if you are looking to play for more, Bison Bonanza will only allow real money bets of up to $10.

However, you can also play using the Bonus Buys at 100x the stake. With this, you receive up to 20 free spins, with the multiplier getting to as high as 500x multipliers (direct access to free spins, or the Bison Wheel).

Bison Bonanza offers a reasonably good top payout, and on a good day, you can walk away with up to 10,000x the stake. Since it’s a medium to high volatility slot, the risk is minimal, especially when you bring in its RTP of 96.50%.

Bison Bonanza Slot Features

The fact that Bison Bonanza uses a Scatter Pays system is one of the game's most unique features. Rather of requiring matching symbols in certain spots or on specific reels, it simply requires 8+ matching symbols in any of the 30 positions available (6x5 reels). They may appear scattered, but you must have that minimum figure to trigger a win.

The cascades are triggered when one of these scattered combos is formed, eliminating the symbols participating in the win. Others will fall and take up any open positions. This allows you to create new combinations, which will lead to more cascades and probably more wins.

The major feature is free spins, which are triggered by the presence of 4 to 6 bonus icons. You can choose from four different options, and this is what I found out about the free spins:

5 free spins- here, multiplier icons are between 8x to 500x.

8 free spins-here multipliers come with a value of between 4x and 200x.

12 free spins that have a win that can potentially be boosted by between 2x to 100x.

There is also the random option, and while in this mode, the multiplier will not serve as a wild, but rather, it will offer a boost to all wins that are formed during that round.

All the values on all multiplier icons are added together, and then the result will be applied to the wins associated with the Scatter Pays engine.

Theme & Design

Slot developers looking for America-wildlife themed games are showing a lot of interest in The Bison.

In this Blueprint title, the Bison is the main character. However, there are plenty of other images like that of the Lynx, Wolf, or Eagle. The lower-value symbols are represented by four card suits that come in various colours. There is also the bonus icon that is decorated with the Bison Coin.


Bison Bonanza may not be among the best-designed slots, but it’s a slot with a few unique elements, which makes it a great alternative for players looking for something new.
