We Check Out the New Super High Variance Buffalo King Slot From Pragmatic Play
Videoslots Casino has just added a new super high variance slot from Pragmatic Play to their casino, titled Buffalo King, make no mistakes here that this slot has been heavily inspired from the popular Raging Rhino slot and dare we say is even more volatile with bigger multipliers and a maximum win of a staggering 93,750 x bet and up to 100 free spins!
Buffalo King uses a 6×4 reel set up with 4096 ways, the base game has heavily stacked symbols on all reels including the highest paying Buffalo symbols along with wilds that are present on reels 2 to 6. The heavily stacked symbols allow for some very good base game hits, so whilst they may be very rare we did have wins well over 300x stake in our playtests from stacked symbols alone.
The main bonus round is triggered by landing 3 or more scatters on the reels, with more free spins being awarded for additional scatters, landing 6 scatters for example awards a huge 100 starting free spins with multiple bonus re-triggers possible too.
The main differences between this slot and Raging Rhino are the introduction of 5x multipliers which will multiply together if several multiplier wilds form winning combinations during the bonus round, these symbols are present on reels 2 to 6, meaning the potential maximum win is an astronomical 93,750 x Bet from a single spin in the bonus round!
The flip side is that that still slot can be brutal too, there is no “Bonus Guarantee” for a bad bonus round, and the highest paying Buffalo symbols require a minimum 3 of a kind to award pays, so it is not unusual to have a free spins bonus round with little or no wins even after getting bonus re-triggers!
It is important to realise that whilst this slot has insane win potential the base game and bonus rounds can be very unforgiving to your bankroll too!
If you are still a fan of Raging Rhino then the mechanics and gameplay will definitely appeal, the stakes have definitely gone up with the introduction of 5x Multiplier wilds and being present on more reels makes this a tremendously volatile machine!

The Free Spins bonus round is triggered by landing 3 or more Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, addtional scatters award more initial starting free spins as follows.

During the bonus round multiple re-triggers are possible and the bonus round can award 5 extra free spins for a 2 scatter re-trigger.
During the free spins Multipliers are added to the wild symbols with values of either 2x, 3x or 5x, and these will multiply together if several wilds form part of a winning combination.
Several of these multiplier wild symbols particularly if they are “5x” can vastly increase the winning combinations on this slot!
Buffalo King Slot
Make no mistakes the Buffalo King slot from Pragmatic Play is a super high variance machine capable of some huge wins, but on accepting this you also have to understand that it can be a brutal unforgiving machine too!
In our playtests, we did manage base game hits well over 300x stake, and bonus rounds that ranged from literally zero to over 300x stake also, re-triggers didn’t seem too uncommon but essentially it is going to be 1 hit featuring several 5x multipliers that will produce the biggest wins on this machine.
Definitely not a slot for the faint-hearted, we think the variance on this machine may even bee too high even for the most hardcore Raging Rhino fans, but certainly if your bankroll is up then a few bonus rounds are probably worth taking the risk on!
