Buffalo Rising: Megaways Slot (Blueprint)

Buffalo Rising: Megaways Slot (Blueprint)Blueprint Gaming has liaised with Big Time Gaming to produce a Megaways system. The concept seems to be taking developers by storm, and quite a number have joined this new wave.

Buffalo Rising is one of those slots that rely on the Megaways concept, and it’s an exciting game to play.

Here is my experienced with this slot machine:

Game Set-Up

With its Megaways system, Buffalo Rising is a slot machine that is set on 6 reels. The game has many as 117,649 ways to form wins, but this also depends.  

For its features, Blueprint uses multipliers, scatters, mega ways, free spins as well as some mystery symbols.

Betting and Prizes

Selecting a wager is easy, and the slot will allow you to do this from the left side of the screen. This is where you will be able to see the currently selected value.

To place a wager, you will need to use at least $0.20 as the lowest amount. The maximum wager will cost $100 per spin.

Given the high number of way to win, coupled with the many features on this game, the potential to make huge profits is real. Up to 10,000 xs, the stake is possible, which translates to about $1,000,000.

Obviously, such high payments are usually accompanied by high volatility, but this slot’s RTP of 96.43% is pretty fair.

Buffalo Rising: Megaways Slot Features

The Megaways system has continuously gained popularity over the years, and there is no sign of it slowing down soon.

This is actually the gaming system that has made Big Time Gaming slots quite popular.  

On each of the reels, you can get between 2 and 7 symbols. This is what determines the number of ways to win, as it can keep on changing from one spinning round to the next.

To get the slot’s highest number of Megaways (117,649), you will need 7 symbols on the entire 6 reels.

The image of the sunset on the prairie is the mystery icon, and it will be transformed into a single type of symbol. This is regardless of the number of times it appears in a spin.

The scatter symbol is the one responsible r activating the free spins. It appears as a Pink Diamond, and during the mode, an increasing multiplier will be applied to each of the rounds. It starts at 1x and can get to the highest which is 35x.

Theme & Design

On the part of the graphics, I must admit that I was not very impressed with them.  However, the theme is quite good, and it revolves around the wild animal, particularly buffaloes and some creatures common on the prairie. They include brown bears, wolves, and elks.

Royals and some Pink diamonds appear frequently around the reels.


Buffalo Rising Megaways is one of the best developments by Blueprint Gaming. Although it’s a slot with relatively high variance, it comes with excellent RTP, and food payout potential.

However, given that it’s a highly risky game to play, I can only recommend it to players who are well-versed with high volatility slots.
