The First Nations lands of North America comprise the setting for the Double Buffalo Spirit slots game, a sequel to a longtime favorite from WMS Gaming. Also poker, for amid the symbols of American wildlife – iguanas, prairie dogs, eagles and buffalo – are the traditional low-paying symbols, here running all the way from Ace to 8.Also old-fashioned country-and-western music, a muzak-y version of which serves as the soundtrack. For some reason.
Double Buffalo Spirit is a five-reel slot game with four rows; you may have concluded hopefully that this slot pays both ways and indeed it does. Thus 1,024 “paylines” are available, with winning combinations hitting on any three like symbols landing in the left-most or right-most reels. Staking on the Double Buffalo Spirit slot is a little eccentric; between 10 to 150 coins of value 40¢ to $1. In short, you’re wagering between $4 and $150.
The American bison itself is seen by Native Americans as a symbol of abundance, while the incredibly rare birth of a white buffalo is seen as an omen. In this slots game, the sacred white buffalo is the wild symbol appearing in reels two through four to help form winning combinations. Is an abundance of coins therefore forthcoming? Let’s hope so.
Naturally, the main draw to Double Buffalo Spirit is the free spins bonus round. WMS Gaming is generally known among players for the generosity of their free games bonuses, and Double Buffalo Spirit keeps up the side in this respect. You know how the basics work: three, four or five scatters in a single spin rewards the player with 8, 15 or 20 free spins, respectively. (Incidentally, before the 20 free spins are awarded for five scatters, a jackpot payout of 2,000 coins is awarded as well. Quite a hit there!)
Within the free spins, the Double Buffalo Spirit slot amps things up – though not on the soundtrack, which stays surprisingly mellow – with the wild buffalo symbol. Each of these awards a 2x or 3x bonus multiplier to payouts; plus, just two scatters landing on a single bonus round spin retriggers the free games.
And even the unlucky are taken care of in Double Buffalo Spirit. Consider the “Bonus Guarantee” feature to be a sort of player’s insurance. Said guarantee ensures that, should the player’s winnings by meager or even zero, a minimum consolation prize of 10x the wager is awarded.
In the final analysis, then, Double Buffalo Spirit is a great play for lovers of standard five-reel online slots – particularly those in the mood for a more laidback slots gaming experience. Enjoy the great skies and gorgeous sunsets of America with Double Buffafo Spirit!
