The Buffalo series of games are centered around a free spin bonus with a more generous than standard retrigger opportunity. Various versions of the game series take advantage of that to build the ability to have some crazy bonuses if the retriggers flow.
One such version is Buffalo Link, which thanks to the Hold & Spin mechanic can yield some impressive bonuses, in part because on most Link games retriggers are rare and don’t give you nearly the spin count that Buffalo does.
When your spin counts get up there, the Hold & Spin can pop up multiple times, just padding the win balance and slowing down play by having an ultra-long bonus that doesn’t require any wagering.
That is effectively what happened to The Slot Cats during a live stream where they sat down to play Buffalo Link. The session starts around 34:54:
It didn’t take long for her to get a Hold & Spin with some decent numbers, which got things off to a good start, but the very next spin a free spin bonus was triggered.
The retriggers flowed quite freely on this bonus, getting up to a total of 65 spins, and yielding multiple Hold & Spin bonuses within the free spins bonus. The initial Hold & Spin and the free spins combined were almost 20 minutes on the machine, with two wagers to trigger them – that’s some strong value on a slot.
Even though the final outcome across them was less than 200x in total, it really shows some of the opportunity to be found in this game. And a couple of larger numbers (Buffalo Link can have credit prizes up to 250x appear) could have really skewed this even further towards an amazing outcome. Still, it’s not hard to enjoy what happened here with the constant activity!
