Head on out to the land where the buffalo roam, and the eagles soar overhead with this online slot from hacksaw Gaming. Buffalo Stack 'n' Sync embraces the beauty of North American nature, while piling up the features to bring you cash prizes. Line them up, and you could win a max payout of x6000.
There's a real fascination with buffalo among slot studios, so if you're a fan of all things wild, you'll have no shortage of choice. Games such as Buffalo Stampede, Buffalo Gold and, of course, the iconic Buffalo Blitz all take players on a tour of the vast expanses in the North American wilds.
Back on Buffalo Stack 'n' Sync, the action takes place on a 5x4 grid which includes ten paylines. Betting begins at 0.10 and can be increased up to the max of 100.00. Volatility is very high, so you'll need plenty of supplies to last in the rugged landscape, as wins won't drop in too frequently.
With blue skies, towering rock faces and cacti, there's a real sense of getting out into nature. However, compared to some of the other buffalo-themed slots, the quality of the graphics is a little basic.
The images on the reels are more detailed, with rock-style playing cards as the low pays. The premium symbols include an eagle, a wild horse, a wolf, cougar and, of course, the buffalo.
Don’t get prickly if a cactus lands; this is the wild symbol that can substitute for any of the regular pays.
The landscape may look barren, but it's absolutely crammed full of features which can bump up your prize total.
In a nod to the name of the game, the Stack 'n' Sync symbol can appear at any time in either the main or bonus rounds. When it lands, a special icon on the top of the board will light up and indicate how many stacked symbols have been loaded onto the reel - 15, 30, 45 or 60. Once the symbols are stacked, you'll receive a respin, one for every Stack 'n' Sync symbol that landed. If more of these special symbols land on the respin, the reel will be synced up with the existing Stack 'n' Sync reel and more respins awarded.
If you don't get a Stack 'n' Sync symbol but manage to fill a whole reel with buffalo instead, you'll trigger the Stampede Reel. This adds a multiplier of between x1 and x100, which will be applied to any buffalo winning combination.
A trio of flaming scatter symbols unlocks the free spins round. You'll receive ten free spins, and there are more high value symbols on the reels than in the base game.
There are also bonus symbols, and if you land four or more, you'll open the Stampede Spins feature. You'll be moved to a board which only contains Stack 'n' Spin, buffalo and skull symbols. The skull symbols are effectively blanks and won't pay you any prizes. Every time you land a Stack 'n' Spin symbol, between 5 and 60 buffalo will be loaded onto the reel, getting rid of any skull symbols. You'll also receive an extra respin for every Stack 'n' Spin symbol you land.
