The latest release from Playtech will take you on an adventure to the grasslands of North America, where you will get the chance to hunt down vast herds of buffalos.
Instead of hunting them down for fur and meat, your main task will be to collect as many buffalos as you can in order to land lucrative payouts in Buffalo Blitz slot, so do hope for a stampede of those magnificent creatures.
The reels are set on a wild plain somewhere in North America and there is nothing there but you, the prairie and some of the most authentic wild animals from the United States. So saddle up your horse, put your trapper outfit on and go on a hunt.
Playtech is one of the oldest software development companies in the business. The company was founded back in 1999 in Tartu, Estonia and it took them two years to launch their first casino product.

How To Play It
This six-reel slot offers 4096 ways to win for a price of 40 coins per spin. Simply set the coin value, which goes from $0.01 to $5 and start spinning those reels.
Minimum bet you can place is $0.40, while the maximum wager is $200. If you want to sit back and enjoy the ride chose the Autoplay option that offers up to 99 automatic spins. In order to speed up the reels, click on the Turbo Mode in the bottom right side of the screen.
Winning combinations are landed from left to right, starting from the leftmost reel. Since there are no paylines, you need at least two identical symbols on adjacent reels to start winning, when we talk about high value symbols. For the low paying symbols, the minimum is three of a kind.
Apart from the Buffalo, which is the highest paying symbol in the slot, other high-value symbols are represented through some of the most authentic animals from the North America, so you will get the chance to hunt down a Cougar, Raccoon, Elk and the Grizzly Bear.
Playing cards are used for low paying symbols. Interestingly, the Diamond represents the Wild symbol and it can substitute for all other symbols except Free Games Scatter. The Wild can appear on every reel except reel 1.
It’s all about the free spins in this Playtech product. Free Games Scatters are crucial for triggering the feature, and you need at least three of them to start the freebies. Three Scatters will award you with 8 free spins, 4 will get you 15 free spins, with 5 Scatters you will win 25 freebies, while 6 will award you with massive 100 free games!
During the feature, the Diamond Wilds will also function as multipliers, and it can multiply your winnings x2, x3 or x5 the initial bet when forming a winning combination. Free Spins can be retriggered at any time, so, in theory, you can be awarded with 200 freebies in total.
The Buffalo is the highest paying symbol in the 2016 release, offering 300 times the initial stake for six of a kind, so if you place the maximum bet of $200, you can expect a $60,000 win. That is not all, since during Free Spins feature Wild serves as a multiplier, so it can multiply your winning up to 5 times.
Hefty payouts can be expected during freebies, due to the 4096 ways to win, Wild multipliers and the possibility to land several maximum combinations of the highest paying symbol.
Truth being told, Buffalo Blitz is nothing more than a decent slot. We were far from impressed with the visuals, since the graphics and the animations are done quite plainly.
The soundtrack is not bat and it does bring the tension up a bit during gameplay. Apart from the Free Spins feature, there are no additional bonus games, so action junkies will not be attracted by the Playtech title.
On the other hand, freebies do offer some outstanding payouts once triggered, and you can win rewarding payouts if you manage to hunt down many Buffalos in combination with multiplier Wilds.
