Buffalo Rising MegaWays Online Slot from Blueprint Gaming – Review, Video and Free to Play
Blueprint have outdone themselves with the Buffalo Rising Megaways online slot. Crisp and beautiful graphics combined with the classic Buffalo many of us know from real slot machines. Smooth game play with a Free Spins Feature with increasing Multiplier which can make you win BIG!
Buffalo Rising Megaways combines cascading reels and mystery symbols to keep the player on his edge even after the last reel has stopped. You never know what will drop after your initial three of a kind in Kings. Perhaps it will be free spins? Perhaps it will line up those alluring Buffalos for a few six of a kinds and a massive win.
Lets get into the review of the slot and learn why we rate this as one of Blueprints best Megaways games.
Paytable and Paylines
Buffalo Rising Megaways is made up of six vertical reels and a seventh horizontal reel on top of the middle four. When the vertical reels stop, they will show anywhere between 2 and 7 symbols. Each spin will thus have a unique numbers of ways to win. If you get lucky, you can lock in a massive 117 649 ways to win. When you get this, and you still do not win anything, we would probably ask you what you did or said to the slot to receive such treatment.
If you do win, you can probably expect an almost never ending cascade of wins. It has never happened to us, so at this point we are just guessing (and hoping).
Cascading Pays / Avalanche reels
Like many Megaways slots, Buffalo Rising has what Blueprint calls Cascading Pays. Others might call it Avalanche Reels. It all means the same, which is that any winning combination of symbols will blow up or otherwise disappear. New symbols are then added to the reels, vertically from above or horizontally from the right depending on reel.
These cascading reels come in handy during the Free Spins Feature. In this, every win increases the Win Multiplier for future wins. Catch a long sequence of wins in the same spin early and you are poised for a great free spins round.
There are ten paying symbols in Buffalo Rising Megaways, four high paying and six low paying. The animals pay the most, with the Buffalo obviously being the highest paying by far. It wouldn’t be Buffalo Rising Megaways otherwise, would it? Following the Buffalo, in a tight trio, are the Wolf, the Moose and the Bear.
Can you guess the low paying symbols? Congratulations, you were right. It is the Royals! Ace, King, Queen, Jack and Ten, even 9 got to join. What are low paying symbols good for? Increasing the multiplier during free spins! Well, that’s not entirely true, a good set of six of a kind Aces, Kings or Queens leads to a hefty win.
Special Symbols in Buffalo Rising Megaways
What’s special about Buffalo Rising Megaways compared to many other Megaways slots? The Mystery Symbol! This can land on any reel and transform into a random symbol, except the Scatter. (If you are looking for a slot where a the Mystery symbol can turn into a Scatter, we suggest Hong Kong Tower or Ho Ho Tower, the Christmas version, from Elk Studios).
Diamonds are a girls best friend, and in Buffalo Rising Megaways that is definitely true. Four of these will earn you the Free Spins Feature and any additional awards extra spins. We will get back to how the free spins work below.
Rounding up the Special symbols, we have the Wild Symbol. This substitutes for any other symbol, except the Scatters symbol.
Buffalo Rising Megaways base game
The base game in Buffalo Rising Megaways can be exciting if you land a good amount of megaways and some cascading wins. However, most of the time your are hoping for those four or more Diamonds when the reels stop. Hit five or even six and you are off to a great start.

- 15 free spins, starting at x1 Multiplier
- 10 free spins, starting at x5 Multiplier

The Mystery Choice in Buffalo Rising Megaways is def
After you have made you choice, the feature in Buffalo Rising MegaWays starts. The multiplier increases every time you hit a winning combination. Getting a good series of cascading wins early is key to winning big in the free spins feature.

This online slot offers players the option to buy into the feature directly. If you pay the cost of 100 times your bet, the reels are guaranteed to stop on a bonus round. Depending on how many Scatters symbols land, you will extra spins added to each of the Feature Options.
