An introduction

Over 85 casino games are supplied by Playson in more than 18 regulated jurisdictions from its headquarters in Malta, along with offices in Greece and the UK. Some of Playson's free online slots use the popular Megaways mechanics we're familiar with from Blueprint's Megaways Buffalo Rising, for example. Playson offers a wide range of themes and mechanics. A Christmas-themed slot has been created by Playson using their Buffalo Power game.

There are 20 paylines on Buffalo Power Christmas's 5-reel, 3-column grid. 0.20 is the minimum bet size and 100 is the maximum. Eight symbols are present: a bear, mountain lion, eagle, wolf, and the four highest playing cards. Mountain struck by lightning is the Scatter symbol, Golden Buffalo is the Power symbol, Sun is the Bonus symbol, and Buffalos in Santa hats are the Stacked Wilds.


Soundtrack, graphics, and theme

In a dramatic setting, like the Grand Canyon or Monument Valley awash with purples, reds, yellows, and blues, with gently falling snow, a simple grid rests, ornamented with ribbons and baubles. There is an orchestral rendition of Native American themes while the sound effects consist of thuds, stabs, and rushing sounds.

Honestly, the animation isn't anything special and the visuals are quite ordinary. A red hat and white beard seem to be the only thing distinguishing Buffalo Power.


RTP and variance for Buffalo Power's Christmas season

According to Playson, Buffalo Power Christmas has a 95.04 percent return on investment. Despite being rated as high to medium, the variance is considered medium.

Our Buffalo Power Christmas Review

Despite the Christmas makeover, this does not improve on Buffalo Power, which was not spectacular in the first place. The bonus games are modest in their ambition, whereas the base game is rather pedestrian. In terms of RTP and maximum payout, the game is below average. We can't recommend this with much enthusiasm, but why not try it yourself and see what you think?
