Buffet Bonanza is a food themed title, one of the many such games to exist today. It’s a Microgaming creation, which will offer the player various food related images among its symbols, overall being a rather average looking title for them. It’s done in a cartoon style, it offers both poker letters and images of foods, and you will discover among the features things like wilds, scatters, free spins and a Buffet bonus game. You have a total of 25 win lines to work with, on 5 reels. The big prize which you can go after can bring you $24,000.
Betting and Prizes
The coins which you can use in Buffet Bonanza slot will have a denomination within the range of $0.01 to $0.20. You may use as many as 20 coins for one line, so this makes up for the small denomination. The maximum line bet is at $4, with the total for 25 lines going only up to $100.
Given that a 6,000x jackpot is announced in the game, the big prize could go up to 120,000 coins, which sounds like quite a bit of money, but it’s actually worth at most $24,000. It’s not a bad amount, but definitely not as good as the number of coins makes it sound.
Buffet Bonanza Slot Features
First, we have the hungry Diner, the image being that of a redhead guy really enjoying his food. This one is the wild symbol, the one that is used by Buffet Bonanza to substitute for some of the other symbols in the game, meaning the regular ones. Only the 3rd reel appears to get this icon, so it feels a bit undervalued at first.
The wild does have one extra role, and that would be the activation of the Buffet feature. You simply need one wild on the 3rd reel, and the bonus game will start as well. You see the Diner as he populates all the symbols of the 3rd reel with wilds, and then you get that 3rd reel locked, with the other four re-spinning once. Various pies will be thrown at symbols, turning some of them into extra wilds.
The only other symbol that would be considered important, besides the one with the jackpot, is the scatter. It will have an image of a Buffet, and when it appears in up to five positions it can bring a payout of up to 200x the wager.
3+ Buffet scatters can trigger the free spins for you, with 10 rounds and a 2x multiplier being offered by them. You get random Diner wilds on the 2nd and 4th reels, and at least one Diner will be added each round. You can retrigger the free spins.
Theme & Design
It’s an OK design, like so many others from Microgaming, with cute cartoon graphics of foods that look delicious, but with some basic poker cards as well. The location is inside some fancy restaurant.
Buffet Bonanza should be a game that you enjoy, at least up to a point. There is nothing out of the ordinary about it, but it works anyway.
