Playson, a top supplier of trending online pokies, has announced the debut of Buffalo Power 2: Hold and Win, an exciting follow-up to one of the company’s top-grossing Hold and Win titles. Playson says that players should buckle up as this game houses a range of brand-new features to exploit.
Like the first instalment, this eagerly awaited release takes players back to the deserts of Arizona. It’s set on a colourful 5×3 game board, where players can find multiple North American animals, including the wolf, eagle, puma, brown bear, and bison. The bison is the highest-paying animal, rewarding games with up to 12.5x the stake for matching at least three of them. Of course, the J-A card royals are the low-value icons.
As you continue roaming the arid lands, the Buffalo Extra Bonus is just one of several enticing features offering players some much-needed comfort and big wins. This feature, a mainstay in the developer’s recent releases, brings a mix of Bonus, Power, and Mystery symbols.
These features can team up to activate the rewarding Bonus Game, which players can activate from the base game or the improved Free Spins mode. During this feature, players have a higher chance of obtaining Power symbols if they land more Mystery symbols.
Playson ramps up the action even further in this new installment to the Buffalo Power series with the addition of five jackpots. But first, players must accumulate the Power symbols to trigger the colossal wins, including the Grand Jackpot. Gamers can collect six Power symbols anywhere on the reels to win the 5,000x Grand Jackpot payout.
As said before, this animal-themed game has an improved Free Spins mode. The bonus game can feature increasing multipliers that can reach 11x, improving the overall appeal of this time-tested but wildly popular feature.
Staying with the bonus mode, players can increase their total multiplier for the current spin with every Stacked Wild symbol they land on the reels. In addition, their earnings will double if a Stacked Wild is completely visible. Then, the multiplier will reset to 1x after it is applied to any wins during that particular spin.
Bringing a Series of Upgrades
Commenting on the new game, Tamas Kusztos, CCO at Playson, said the company is thrilled to debut Buffalo Power 2. The official added that the game houses a series of upgrades, and Playson expects it to trend like the initial installment debuted 3 years.
Kuzstos concluded: “The overall experience of this sequel has been sharpened, from the thrilling gameplay and variety of enhanced features to the improved visuals and music, which provides an even greater ambience. We wanted to keep the essence of what made Buffalo Power so popular with players, but take it in a new direction with subtle twists to the gameplay for fans of the original and new players to enjoy.”
Natalia Shkarbanova, Playson’s Product Owner, echoed the CCO’s sentiments, remarking: “We wanted to ramp up what we had created in the original Buffalo Power, so players will have a truly unique experience in this sequel. We have a proven track record when it comes to creating sequels, with games such as Royal Coins 2, and we are confident that Buffalo Power 2 will be a fantastic addition to our illustrious portfolio.”
