Double Buffalo Spirit by WMS
Double Buffalo Spirit is actually the online sequel to Buffalo Spirit which is a brick and mortar based slot by WMS Gaming. Double Buffalo Spirit is however so totally different from the original game as to be almost unrelated. Double Buffalo Spirit has five reels and instead of the usual amount of paylines it offers players WMS’s 1024 Ways to Win system. This mean that there are many more chances to get a winning combination, but those wins will be substantially less than those created with regular paylines due to the amount of them.
Double Buffalo Spirit is a highly volatile slot. It should be played with caution and not by beginners or those who are looking for a penny slot. The special features do happen, but you have to be betting quite big to get at them. The coin range is .40 up to 100 which will rule out those who wish to play with a lower budget.
Good for Mobile Graphics
Double Buffalo Spirit has decent graphics, but they are still pretty standard slot machine style. Lots of bright colours don’t quite make up for the plain flat drawings that can be found on a multitude of other online slots by a multitude of other developers. A pretty sunset backs the cream coloured reels which are bound by wooden poles made to look Native American. The symbols themselves are nicely enough drawn, even if the actual buffaloes of the games name do look a bit like they have escaped from a mental ward and are planning to murder you in your sleep.
Double Buffalo Spirit is set in the great plains of North America, where the buffalo used to roam in their millions and Native Americans worshipped and cared for the land before it was destroyed by settlers. Most of the symbols in Double Buffalo Spirit reflect this, except for the set of poker cards that has very little to do with the theme. These are at the bottom of the ladder when it comes to payouts. Above them we have lizards worth 125 coins for five, gophers worth 150 and eagles worth 200 coins for five of them in a row. The actual buffaloes are worth 375 coins for five of them as well as being the games wild symbols.
Wild Buffaloes and Spirited Spins
There are two buffaloes in Double Buffalo Spirit, one dark and one light. These can be found on reels two three and four, but not very often. These bovine brutes will take the place of all other symbols in the game except for the bonus symbol.
Dead buffaloes or at least the skull of one is the games bonus symbol that awards you with free spins. Three or more of these anywhere on the reels will give an amount of free spins that is dependent on how many of them that you found. These can be retriggered during the round by finding more dead buffaloes. A live buffalo during these rounds will give you a multiplier to add to your winnings.
Bonus Guarantee Feature
The guys at WMS have added in a little feature that guarantees a win during your free spins round which is a feature many would love to see when playing online roulette at New Zealand casinos. Should your round be a tad disappointing, with no buffaloes either live or dead showing up, the game will grant you an automatic ten times your stake multiplier.
