More about Buffalo slot online
There are a few subtle differences in the online slot, compared to the casino land based slot machine. One in particular was noticed by a poster at a slots forum, who was thrown by the Puma’s appearing instead of Cougars on the reels. I suppose you need to know your big cats to spot changes like that!
An interesting Buffalo review at Gamingslots pointed out that there the ambient casino background noise (added to quite a few online Aristocrat slots) is on Buffalo as a default. So you have to turn it off if you don’t like it. There is a lot of cheering and whooping in this background noise, which sounds more like a bar than a casino – which is why I always turn it off.
Slots players that know there stuff will have noted that the RTP (return to player) for the online version of Buffalo is set at 94.85%. Despite this not being the best RTP you can get online, it is much better than you would get in any casino. Most slot machine RTP’s in a casino are normally set between 88-92% and you will be very lucky if you get any higher.
With a higher RTP, you will get more chances of winning, its as simple as that. This is a medium volatility slot, so you can expect some pretty decent wins when you do hit those winning combinations.
One thing that has certainly remained in the Buffalo online slot is the bellow of BBUUFFFAALLLLOOO! from your machine when you line up 2 or more lines of the buffalo symbol. These buffalo symbols are generally stacked, so you can hit multiple winning lines normally when you see it on the reels.
