You may see the word live in the title and be a bit confused. As a video slot, Buffalo Blitz is arguably one of the best Playtech has ever produced. Since its release in 2016, Buffalo Blitz has been the go-to for many punters playing at online casinos. And, why wouldn’t it be? After all, it’s a well-presented game with an excellent theme that is straightforward to play. So, you may be scratching your head thinking why all of a sudden you see the slot with the word live attached. Well, Playtech, as all of my foxy friends know, are innovators at heart, and they’ve created a live version of Buffalo Blitz.
A live version of Buffalo Blitz does exactly what it says on the tin. Me furry friends will be playing the Buffalo Blitz video slot but in a live setting. And, not only that, there will be a live host, as you will expect, but Playtech, one of the industry’s most respected developers, have another trick up their sleeve. Buffalo Blitz Live is a multiplayer title. Yes, you read that correctly. An unlimited number of players will be spinning the reels of Buffalo Blitz at the same time. And they’ll win and lose together.
So, there’s more innovation going on than meets the eye with Buffalo Blitz Live. First, all foxy members have a hugely successful slot being played live, in real-time, with a host on hand to guide the conversation and occasionally hit the all-important manual spin button. And then, there is also the social element that comes into play. Again, Playtech enhances it, allowing all our furry members to talk amongst ourselves and with the host as the action plays out. We haven’t seen a slot like this before, and bringing something unique and fresh to the table is always an excellent idea, primarily when the video slot of choice is already held in high regard by many.
Buffalo Blitz Live may look exactly the same as the original version of the game, but it isn’t. Playtech naturally had to make some changes here and there to accommodate the move to a live setting. The game takes place on the screen to the host’s left, with six reels and 4,096 ways to win included. If punters want to win a prize, they’re going to need to line up matching symbols as they would in a traditional slot.
Before the action can get underway, we must choose how much we want to stake, how many spins they intend to play for, and their limits on winning and losing. The action gets underway from 20p per spin, and as the reels turn, me foxy fans can interact with each other and the host.
One of the crucial elements of Buffalo Blitz Live is that it's straightforward, which means it's not overloaded with bonus rounds. After all, the game is called Bonus Blitz, so the buffalo icon appearing stacked across all the game's six reels is no surprise.
There is a wild too, in the form of a diamond, which can appear on all reels bar the first. Therefore, it can’t pay directly but will act as a substitute to help form winning combos. In addition, it can, at times, reward players with random multipliers worth up to 5x during the Free Spins bonus feature.
Talking of the Free Spins bonus feature, you need three or more scatters to trigger it, with up to 100 free games possible. And, everything is made better knowing that if anyone gets their paws on more scatters during the feature, it means more spins are added to the running total.
Buffalo Blitz Live is a new concept and one that is worth checking out. Playtech are always likely to come up with content like this, as they attempt to push the boundaries and deliver fresh material for players to enjoy. I strongly suggest that all me fuzzy foxy members should try the game just to see how they like the look and feel of a live slot with social elements included.
