Time to blaze ahead in the wild west as this Blazing Bull slot gives you 4096 ways to win, over 6 reels, with two free spins symbols and 3 types of multipliers.
Time to get on your saddle and go hunting over the wild western planes. You never know what you’ll find, Lynx, Wolves, Bears or even the mythical Blazing Bull who will send your wins skyrocketing into a peyote daydream.
Kalamba Gaming has created a very beautiful animal-themed American West game in this Blazing Bull mobile slot, and whilst it’s not totally original, it doesn’t matter because it’s beautifully crafted.
And set over 6 reels and 4 rows of symbols, you need a nicely designed game so it doesn’t feel cluttered and hard to see. Which this doesn’t: the symbols are clear, the wins are obvious and that’s helped by the fact that all the symbols come stacked, giving it a cleaner look and feel.
You know, you got to love a real money game that’s honest. And this Blazing Bull slot is as honest as it can be.
Because you start with meters above the reels: the gold meter says 9 spins and the silver meter says 7 spins. For every 33 paid spins the gold meter will go up by one, and for every 15 paid spins the silver meter will go up by one.
These are your free spin bonus rounds. And whenever you get 3 gold coin scatters or 3 silver coins scatter, you trigger one or the other respectively with the number of free spins you’ve accumulated.
In essence, this is a mobile phone slot game that doesn’t want to give you free spins, because you need to accumulate enough first to make it worth your while. The gold spins will have a 3x multiplier on the wild, whilst the silver spins will have a 2x multiplier on the wild.
Yes and no. We triggered the golden spins, and with those stacked symbols and 4096 ways to win, there is no doubt that there is a whole load of gold in them hills.
And one spin is all it takes to get those wins, so you could potentially trigger a big win just with 7 spins under your saddlebag. But this Blazing Bull video slot will make you wait, and wait, and wait, to hit the free spins at those higher amounts.
It means you can expect a bonus every 100 spins, which isn’t bad, but it feels frustrating. It’s no different than many other games out there such as the Ninja Ways slot or Buffalo Rising Megaways. However, having those counters and those numbers makes it feel frustrating because you are just counting down to the bonus.
However, if you ignore the top half of these hills, you can enjoy a gorgeous looking 4096 ways to win game with wilds, multipliers and free spins. Classic but generally a good slow time with sudden moments of high thrills.

Wilds and Multipliers: The dream catcher is the wild symbol and will substitute for all other symbols except the bonus. You also get 2x and 3x wild symbol in the free spins, which comes with a 2x or 3x multiplier respectively. However, these three types of wilds cannot substitute for each other, so they won't count in pay combinations as just wilds, only as part of another symbol.
Stacked Symbols: Most of the paytable symbols can come stacked up to 4 high.
How to trigger Free Spins: How many free spins you get depends on how long you play before you catch either 3 gold coins or 3 silver coins. On every 15 spins, the silver meter at the top of the reels will fill up, increasing the number of silver free spins you might get. On every 33 spins, the gold meter will increase.
Once you get 3 Blazing Bull scatters (either gold or silver) you'll trigger however many free spins you've accumulated so far. So what's the difference? In the Gold free spins, you get a 3x multiplier on all the wilds, whilst in the Silver free spins, you get a 2x multiplier on all the wilds.
During the Blazing Bull free spins you can retrigger the bonus by getting:
You reset the silver free spins at 7 spins and can trigger up to a maximum of 20 spins.
You reset the gold free spins at 9 spins and can trigger up to a maximum of 30 free spins.
How do we feel about this Blazing Bull slot game? A little torn. On one hand, the graphics are great, and the fact that you get two progressively larger free spin bonuses does spice things up a little bit.
We also generally love 4096 ways to win slot, ever since we first wrote the Raging Rhino game review, and there's something fun about playing 6 reels that have the potential to pay really big.
The problem comes with the fact that you need to play a whole load of spins to get worthwhile bonus rounds, which can feel a little boring. When it's random, at least you can imagine that any spin you take could trigger something.
When you have to wait 30 spins to get a better bonus (and not even trigger it), it can feel like you're just paying in money for the opportunity to spin on a mobile slot machine.
Not to say there are not some great ideas here, and it can be profitable, but we like our games with a little more luck and action on our side: maybe the Wilheim Tell slot by Yggdrasil or That's Rich by Play'n GO.
