There’s more than gold, there are diamonds in these hills if you can last long enough to trigger the Diamond Link Mighty Buffalo slot bonus.
Diamond Link Mighty Buffalo is a 5×3 25 payline slot machine by Novomatic. At first glance, it seems a typical high variance slot with a 95% RTP to match. You’ve got wilds, stacked buffalo symbols, and the glittering diamond promising all the big game features.
You win big in the Diamond Link Mighty Buffalo slot by catching 5 diamonds on the reels and triggering the Diamond Link Feature. If you catch any one of the two wild features, that’s when the Might Buffalo will come into play and help you win over 5,000x your bet.
At heart, this is one of the simpler Novomatic slots with 9 paying symbols. The wild and Buffalo are the highest paying, followed by the eagle, the bear, the wolf, and the puma, with Ace, K, and Q ending the paytable.
The wild symbol pops up often enough to give you wins now and then but it’s the stacked Buffalo symbol that you’ll want to keep an eye on if you plan on getting any kind of wins.
The base game is helped by the golden coins, which as mystery symbols, will turn into any other single symbol on the reels, giving you the chance to win 20x to 30x your bet from time to time.
In fact, if you manage to get anything close to a full reel of Buffalo’s with or without the coins, you’ll win 750x your bet. But, of course, you want more than that.
All this is passing the time until you can collect 6 diamonds on the reels of this Diamond Link Mighty Buffalo slot game. Then you’ll get the respin feature with those diamonds sticky on screen. You have 3 respins to collect more.
Mostly you get instant cash prizes. Sometimes you get a special diamond and trigger one of the jackpots, two of which make this a mobile progressive jackpot slot.
But for the most part, the main wins come when the wild symbol shows up on the reels. Because there are three types of wilds that you can find in these Diamond Link Mighty Buffalo slot respins, and unlike the Artic Race slot, the wins are a lot more profitable here.
For each of these wilds, you’ll trigger a single spin in the normal base game but with an added feature. The Wild Spin simply adds random numbers of wilds to the sticky. The other will give you sticky wins like in The Great Stick Up review.
Or maybe you’ll get the Colossal Spin where reels 2, 3, and 4 could spin one giant symbol, including a wild with a 2x or 3x multiplier.
All are profitable, and all are collected when the Diamond Link Mighty Buffalo bonus is over. It’s just a shame that the wilds are so hard to catch, and for the most part you have to be happy with around 500x your bet as a max win.
Which is still very decent. But you have to be prepared to lose it all on these mighty American Wild West slot planes because this is a harsh environment. But when you find diamonds, it will all seem worthwhile.

Gamble Feature: You can gamble any win you get in a simple game. Pick whether the next card on the deck is red or black. Guess right, you double your original win. Guess wrong, you lose your original win.
You have to be a true fan of high variance slot machines to appreciate this Novomatic game. For the most part, you have to wait for either the jackpots or the wild re-spin features, to get ahead.
The good news is that there are lots of game features which keep you busy, from those stacked buffalo symbols to all the diamonds slowly collecting on the screen and 25 paylines.
It's a little high on the variance scale for us to promise that we'll be back all that often, but that's not to say if we came across amongst our travels we wouldn't be tempted to play at one of our recommended casinos online.
