There are several animals native to the Australian continent. The kangaroo, koala bear and emu are the most popular. Similarly other continents have their own native fauna. The buffalo, also known as the bison, once freely roamed across the prairies of North America. There are two excellent online pokies based on this majestic creature.
White Buffalo is from the instant play platform of Microgaming and is available at online casinos like Royal Vegas, Casino Mate and 32Red. In the winter of the north, the buffalo has a white fur and hence the name White Buffalo. The buffalo is sacred to the Native Americans and is a part of their art and iconography. One such representation is the wild symbol, which also awards the top line payouts. The scatter symbol is the game logo on a steer head. The high paying symbols are white buffalo, along with other local animals like moose, elk and ram. The low paying symbols are the usual playing card icons. The single bonus feature is triggered randomly. You will be awarded six free spins with the moose, elk and ram symbols on the reels converted to white buffalo symbols. The feature may retrigger randomly. White Buffalo is a 25 selectable paylines online pokie in the 5×3 format. The maximum line bet is AU$6 and you can wager up to $150 per spin.
The Playtech online pokie is titled Buffalo Blitz. It is live at online casinos like Mansion Casino and Omni Casino. It is an all pays pokie in the 6×4 structure amounting to 4096 paylines. The buffalo appears stacked on all the reels and you can see the entire herd of buffaloes charging wildly in the win animations. Again, the other high paying symbols are native animals like puma, raccoon, elk and grizzly bear. The low paying symbols are the playing card icons. The diamond is the wild symbol, which does not appear on the first reel. The Free Games logo triggers the free spins feature. The number of free spins awarded depends on the number of scatters in the triggering spin. You start with 8 free spins from three symbols and go to a whopping 100 free spins from six symbols. The wild symbol randomly multiplies payouts by 2x, 3x or 5x when substituting for other symbols in the free spins. The free spins can be retriggered. The maximum line bet is AU$5. The total bet is 40 times the line bet and hence the maximum total bet works out to AU$200.
