Cool Buck is a 5 reel, 9 payline slot powered by Microgaming. Available to play on all compatible devices from 9p to £45 per spin, it’s a refresh of the original 3-reel game but includes super stacked wilds and a free spins feature where all wins are doubled.
Visually, it’s dominated by a dark green background – it’s nothing to shout about really. Symbols on the reels are cartoon style and including low value playing cards (A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9), triple Bars, dollar bill stacks and golden $ signs. The wild is the Cool Buck logo and lands fully stacked on reels 3 and 4 in the base game but on all reels in the Free Spins feature.
In terms of the Free Spins feature – you can trigger this 1 of 2 ways. Pink stars will sometimes appear on the playing cards – once you’ve collect 30 of them, you will trigger the feature. The other way is the get 3 or more Cool Buck scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. If you get 5, you’ll also get a cash bonus of 100 times your stake.
If you trigger via the pink stars, you will receive 30 free spins – if you trigger with 3 or more scatters, the number of free spins depends on how many pink stars you’ve accumulated. Either way, all wins during the feature are subject to a 2x multiplier and doubled.
Cool Buck is a low variance game so there’s plenty of bang for your buck – you can though win up to 2,388 times your total bet on each free spin. Saying that, it’s another standard offering from Microgaming – they have produced much better titles recently including Tarzan and Jungle Jim El Dorado.
