Microgaming is a leading software provider to Australian online casinos. It includes in its portfolio several online pokies dedicated to gourmet dining. Some of the more popular ones are Voila! and Harveys. But gourmand is another kind of foodie who is concerned with quantity and not quality. A buffet spread will never fail to attract him. Buffet Bonanza is a Microgaming online pokie for the gourmand online casino player. It is live at Australian online casinos like Casino Mate, 32Red and Royal Vegas.
The reels are set in the background of a lavishly laid out buffet. The high paying thematic symbols on the reels are meat, lobster, cake and salad. The low paying symbols are the usual playing card icons in bright colours. The glutton is the wild symbol and you can see him tucking into a full plate in the win animations. The wild symbol can appear only on reel 3 and it triggers the Buffet Feature when it does so. The reel gets stacked with the wild symbol. It is held fixed and the remaining reels are re-spun without any additional wager. Then pies are randomly thrown on the reels. The spots they land on are automatically converted to the wilds. The payouts are awarded after this process. This feature is not available in the free spins.
The game logo is the scatter symbol. It awards payouts multiplied by the total bet when two or more appear anywhere on the reels. Three or more scatter symbols trigger the free spins feature. You will be awarded 10 free spins at doubled payouts. During the free spins the wild symbol is added to reels 2 and 4. The free spins can be retriggered in the usual manner. The Microgaming gamble feature is also available in Buffet Bonanza online pokie. After every payout you have the option to try to double or quadruple the win amount. If you correctly guess the colour of the next card your payout will be doubled. If you correctly guess the suit of the next card the payout will be quadrupled. If you guess wrong then the payout from the spin is lost.
Buffet Bonanza online pokie has 25 selectable paylines. The maximum total bet per spin is AU$100, which will bring in the high roller players at Australian online casinos. The top line payout of 6000 coins is awarded when five meat symbols land on an enabled payline. The online pokie will have medium to high variance.
