Buffalo King Megaways Slot Game Background
Buffalo King Megaways is the direct follow-up to Pragmatic Play’s own Buffalo King slot from 2020. Pragmatic was looking for a candidate for their next Megaways title, and they opted to revamp the Buffalo King online slot. The original boasted a 6-reel, 4-row set-up and an impressive (for a non-Megaways slot) 4,096 paylines. With Buffalo King Megaways, they went above this. As a result, the slot offers a whopping 200,704 ways to win alongside other exciting features and design mechanics usually found in Megaways slots.
Buffalo King Megaways Slot Game Design
Buffalo King Megaways is a 6-reel online slot game with anywhere between 2 - 8 rows, depending on the on-screen action and the size of the symbols in view. As is also usual in Megaways slots, the game has an extra horizontal reel that in this game sits above reels 2, 3, 4, and 5 of the main game grid. The slot also offers an above-average (for a Megaways slot) of 200,704 paylines and a potential maximum payout of 5,000x the stake.
The slot's setting is the great expanse of the American West. This means you get canyons, rocky outcrops, prairies littered with the odd spare vegetation alongside distant mountains, and a beautifully realized sunset. The main game grid takes up most of the in-game screen and is set in a frame made of wooden posts that are tied together; this extends to the horizontal reel. Symbols comprise both royal playing cards and a wide assortment of animals (naturally). When not spinning the reels, the slot has a low laid-back soundtrack punctuated by banjo strumming that successfully conveys the wide-open spaces the slot attempts to portray. Spin the reels, however, and the music comes upbeat and frenetic while still keeping to the American West theme.

Buffalo King Megaways Slot Bonus Features
Buffalo King Megaways offers a few stampeding bonuses and features sure to get the excitement levels going!
If you’ve played other Megaways slots, you’ll be familiar with the Avalanche or Cascading Reels feature. Here it’s called the Tumble feature, but the idea is the same. All symbols in winning combinations disappear from the reels, making room for symbols from above. Tumbling continues until no more winning combinations appear.
Free Spins Feature
The feature is triggered by landing 4 - 6 Bonus symbols on the reels. Landing the same amount of Bonus symbols also awards a specific payout.
- 4 Bonus symbols = 12 Free Spins + 5x the total bet.
- 5 Bonus symbols = 17 Free Spins. + 20x the total bet.
- 6 Bonus symbols = 22 Free Spins + 100x the total bet.
Wild symbols take on a random 2x, 3x or 5x win multiplier during Free Spins as well. Any time a Wild symbol lands as part of a winning combination, its multiplier is accumulated in a tumble multiplier indicator. All the multipliers that hit during a tumble sequence are multiplied. Winnings are then awarded for the entire tumbling sequence.
Landing another 3 Bonus symbols during the feature grants an additional 5 Free Spins. Theoretically, there’s no limit to the number of times the Free Spins bonus round can be re-triggered.
The incorporation of the Megaways engine means that each reel can reveal a certain number of symbols in view. Landing consecutive symbols on all reels after a spin could lead to the maximum 200,704 ways to win!
