Buffet Bonanza is a food themed slot machine from Microgaming, a game that seems to be inspired by a restaurant where you can eat as much as you want to. The reels are filled with symbols which show poker cards and foods like cake, vegetables, lobsters or steaks. There is even a young man that’s enjoying a plate of food. This is an average slot when it comes to the layout it uses, having 5 reels with 25 lines. It can pay $24,000.
Betting & Jackpots
The elements you work with include the number of coins per line, going up to 20, and the coin value, which reaches $0.20. You also decide the number of lines, with up to 25 active each round. The most you are allowed to wager in one spin is $100.
Given the 6,000x reward promised by the slot, expect a prize of up to 120,000 coins, but know that due to the low coin value, it will only be worth $24,000 to you.
The image of the Diner is used for a symbol with the capability to substitute for another one, as long as it’s not the scatter, which shows the Buffet. Wild symbols are very limited here though, showing up only on reel 3.
A Buffet Feature triggers whenever the Diner is present on that 3rd reel, where all the positions on it get the Diner wild, and the other four reels re-spin once for free. Next, a bunch of Pies will be thrown towards symbols, changing them into wilds. If there are any prizes at this point, they are awarded.
The symbol with the Buffet and the game logo will give you a prize, should it appear two or more times anywhere on the five reels. The rewards can go up to 200x the bet value.
If you happen to get at least three scatters, expect a free spins feature to start, where you get 10 games and a 2x multiplier for all prizes. The 2nd and 4th reels get Diner wilds on them, which is not possible in the base game. Each spin has at least one wild symbol in it. You can retrigger free spins, with an extra 3+ scatter symbols.
The design doesn’t look impressive, but it is an OK game to play if you enjoy the features and payouts which it offers. It has symbols with various delicious foods and with poker cards. The background shows you that the action is taking place inside a restaurant.
There are some things that I enjoyed about this slot machine, especially the features which are not the same as in other slots, but some extra work could’ve been done on the graphics.
