Big Bad Bison Overview
It’s time for a new game by Big Time Gaming. Which is of course the creator of the Megaways mechanism. And they have released a new Megaways slot called Big Bad Bison.
Slots that use a bison or buffalo theme are almost uncountable. It seems that once that theme was first used, all providers in the world started using it. And, now Big Time Gaming also uses the theme. Which, to be honest, looks nice, but is also way overused.
The game has 6 reels that are between 2 and 7 symbols high during each spin. This setup can give a maximum of 117.649 Megaways per spin.
The reels are set against a Grand Canyon type of rock. And for symbols you will find standard card symbols and different animals, the bison being the highest paying one. There are also wild symbols on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 and golden coins, which are the scatter symbols, on all reels.
Big Bad Bison comes with a huge maximum payout of 67.640 times your bet.
Big Bad Bison Features
Wild symbols can appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 in both the base game and during free spins. When one or more wild symbol appears they might randomly receive a multiplier of x2, x3, x4 or x5. More than one wild symbols may get different multipliers.
Free Spins Feature
3 or more scatter symbols will award 12 free spins.
During free spins you will start with a minimum number of 64 ways. Meaning that you get at least 64 ways per spin.
Each time 2 scatter symbols appear, you will get 4 more free spins, but the meter with the minimum number of ways will go up. This meter starts at 64 ways and will go up to 729, 4.096, 15.625, 46.656 and finally 117.649 ways.
More than 2 scatters will also increase the meter, but will add more free spins.
When you get a win of between 25 and 50 times your bet during a base spin you are able to exchange those winnings for the chance to win free spins. A wheel will spin, land on green and you will trigger free spins, land on red and you will lose your winnings and go back to the base game.
Most casinos will offer the option to buy the free spins feature for 50 times your bet.
Big Bad Bison is a solid title. It offers a nice free spins feature with those minimum ways ladder, which it nicely done.
But somehow the game feels a but basic. The theme doesn’t help. How many animal, bison, buffalo themed games can we have. And the theme is also very basic. It doesn’t lure you in, so that’s a miss for me. And also the fact that reactions are gone feels like a miss.
The game does have a massive maximum payout of over 60.000 time bet, which does make up a little bit what it’s lacking in excitement.
But, me personal, was expecting a little more from Big Time Gaming.
