How do you play Buffalo Rising Megaways?

First choose a bet you want to play with. This can differ from small to fairly large amounts. The minimum bet per spin is 0.10 and the maximum is 10 euros. Then you start the game by pressing the ‘spin’ button. So take into account the varying number of rows. Then you hope for some nice combinations and the bonus round.

The Symbols

The basic symbols correspond to those of a card game: 10, J, Q, K, and A. Furthermore, the premium symbols consist of the Bear, the Wolf, the Moose, and of course the Buffalo. Of course there is also a wild symbol with the usual function. To unlock the bonus round you need to collect 4 diamonds! You also have the mystery symbols, which often appear in large numbers when they appear.

The Prices

The game is very varied and due to the large number of paylines and the multipliers it is possible to get a nice prize with each symbol. So even with the basic symbols 10, J, Q, K, and A this is possible. Looking at the premium symbols, the Buffalo is of course worth the most with 50 coins for every 60 of a kind. The other premium symbols only yield between 2 and 5 coins for a 6 of a kind.

Cascading Reels

This feature is activated every time you win something. The symbols that participate in this winning combination will then disappear from the playing field and make way for new symbols. This gives you a chance to win new combinations within the same bet! This continues until no new combination is formed.
