The base game has remained the same with all the well-known characters – Buffalo, Eagle, Tiger, Wolf and Deer. The sunset symbol is wild and 3 scatter symbols, which are the Gold Coin – trigger up to 50 free spins. The most significant change is the reel’s position. The slot game still has 5 reels, but the first and fifth reels have 4 symbols, while the second, third and fourth reels have 5 symbols. Buffalo Grand is an Xtra Reel Power slot, which consists of 4 jackpots – Mini jackpot, Minor jackpot, Major jackpot and Super jackpot. After a win of the Super jackpot it is reset to $500.000.
Players must be prepared for a very high volatility game, which means a lot of windows with many non-winning games. Therefore a bigger bankroll is recommended. The objective is to receive 3 coin symbols and get free spins. The Sunset Symbol multiplies each win during the free spins.
