Buffalo Ways Slot (Microgaming)

Buffalo Ways Slot (Microgaming)Buffalo Ways is a recent addition to the long list of slots from renowned developers, Microgaming and Gong Gaming.

Just as its name suggests, the slot features a wildlife theme, with inspiration coming from North America’s creatures.

It appears like the Bison is the star here, however, I also got to interact with other animals like elk, eagles, and wolves, among a few others.

Game Set-Up

Buffalo Ways is designed on a large betting area of 6x4 reels, with up to 4096 ways to win.

Inside, there are many features among them Stacked symbols, free spins with multipliers, as well as wilds.

Betting and Prizes

When it comes to real money bets, this slot doesn’t seem friendly to high rollers as the maximum that you can put in a single bet is $20 per spin. However, if you are on a budget, you will be able to place bets starting with as little as $0.40 on each round.

Buffalo Ways pays pretty well though, and you can expect payouts of up to 12,000x the stake ($240,000).

I noticed that Buffalo Ways is highly volatile, but it also offers a good RTP of 96.04%.

Buffalo Ways Slot Features

Although not quite powerful, the wild is one of those important features that I wouldn’t wish to miss on a slot machine.

Here, they appear on reels 2-6 and they come in to assist with the formation of new wins that may be formed on their active lines.

Inside, there are scatters as well, and these will only appear once on each reel. On landing 3 to 6 scatters (at the same time), I got an impressive 8 to 100 free spins!

It did not stop there with the free spins, and on landing an extra set of scatters, I was happy to retrigger the feature. This way, you can get up to 100 more spins.

The only major challenge while in this mode is the fact that you get to work with the multiplier wild and not the regular one.

Any wins that the wild is part of will get a boost of up to 5x by a single substitute. It can be more if several of these come together (the multipliers will be summed up).

Theme & Design

Just as the name suggests, expect a wildlife theme here, with pretty much the kind of symbols that you would get in a North American prairie set-up.

The Bison features predominantly as part of the symbols, but there are others such as a bear, a racoon, an eagle, and a standard collection of Royals.


Buffalo Ways may not offer a modern design but it is a slot that I enjoyed playing. It is a simple slot with lots of potentials, especially when the features come in.

Microgaming and its partner did a pretty good job here, and I can recommend Buffalo Ways to all levels of players.
