Buffet Bonanza Details Page
The Microgaming software is excellent in all respects. It has a number of features for the convenience of players such as customizing audio and game speed. There is an Auto Play facility that can be stopped if a win exceeds or equals a specified amount. Detailed game statistics are also offered.
Easy to Understand (10)
The pay table and rules can be accessed from within the game. These are clearly explained and easy to understand. Help files are also available.
Graphics & Sounds (7)
The graphics are excellent but the sound and animation affects are ordinary. There is no background music in the normal spins. Only the two main symbols have animation effects. On the whole Buffet Bonanza disappoints in this category.
Theme and Concept (8)
The theme of food is a popular one in online slot games. However the theme could have been better expressed if food symbols had been used instead of high value card symbols. Whatever little animation is there is appropriate to the theme. The concept of pie throwing to generate wild symbols is innovative but does not gel well with elegant dining.
Game Features (10)
There are two bonus features and one Gamble feature. The Buffet Feature has a number of innovative concepts like wilds becoming stacked and further wild symbols being generated through pie throwing. The Free Spins Feature has additional wild symbols added and this makes it more exciting and more paying.
Betting Options (10)
All three betting options can be manipulated in Buffet Bonanza and this adds flexibility to the wagering. The somewhat limited coin size range is compensated for by the 20 coins per payline. The line bet range varies from 0.01 to 4.00 and the total bet range varies from 0.01 to 100.00.
The absence of a progressive jackpot is always a drawback. However Buffet Bonanza offers some attractive fixed jackpots. The top two jackpots pay out 6000 and 3000 coins. At maximum line bet the payout in credits will be 24,000 and 12,000 credits respectively.
