Skywind’s Buffalo Lightning Slot Review

Buffalo Lightning is a volatile 6 reel, 4,096 ways to win slot from Skywind. It’s not the flashiest looking slot but the free spins round can be a real winner thanks to the wild multipliers that can send payouts soaring by up to 33x. Play this high variance game on all devices from between £1 and £300 per spin.

Buffalo Lightning Theme/Symbols

There’s a retro, brick and mortar feel to the design in the Buffalo Lightning slot. It’s not as slick and smooth as many recent releases but does the job. Joining the lower value A to 9 symbols are a beaver, a ram, a wolf and an eagle. The buffalo is the top standard symbol.

Land 3, 4, 5 or 6 on adjoining reels on the same spin and you’ll receive an award of 0.5, 1, 2 or 5 times your stake. There’s also a wild symbol, the flying bird, that can land anywhere apart from reels 1 and 6 – this replaces all symbols bar the scatter.

Scatter Pays

The golden buffalo coin is the scatter. Land 3, 4, 5 or 6 of these anywhere on the same spin and you can look forward to a payout of 1, 2, 10 or 100 times your stake. This pays in any position – the scatter doesn’t have to appear on successive reels meaning you could get it on reels 1, 2, 4 and 6.

Free Games feature

With 4, 5 and 6 scatters, you’ll also trigger the Free Games feature with 10, 25 or 100 free spins – this is in addition to the cash award. Each of those free spins starts with a 1x multiplier. If a wild lands, it will come with a multiplier attached of 1x, 2x, 3x, 5x or 8x.

These are added together to give a total multiplier for that free spin – up to 33x. The multiplier reverts to 1x with each new free spin. You can add more free spins to your tally too. Hit 3 scatters and you’ll get another 5 free spins – 4, 5 or 6 scatters will give you 10, 25 or 100 more free spins.

Buffalo Lightning thoughts

The game might lack a little design flair but the high variance gameplay makes Buffalo Lightning worth a spin. The RTP is a high 96.67%. It’s the Free Games feature where the coins can really start to fly thanks to the multipliers which can reach up to 33x on each free spin.

We’ve seen more sophisticated slots than this but for straightforward, volatile play, you won’t go too far wrong here.
