Review: Buffalo Stack’n’Sync (Hacksaw Gaming)

When someone mentions the wild west, most would think of cowboys and outlaws. The true beauty of the west is its rich wildlife. This includes the glorious bald eagle, strong buffalo, majestic wild stallion, cunning timber wolves, and the deadly cougar of the Americas. These are the heroes of Hacksaw Gaming’s new slot game Buffalo Stack’n’Sync now available at online casinos. 

Basic features

Buffalo Stack’n’Sync is a simple slot game with five reels and four rows. It has a high volatility with payouts ranging from x0.1 as the lowest with three of a kind 10 symbol to x20 for five of a kind buffalo or cactus symbol. The game has 10 static paylines including four straight rows and six zigzag patterns between two adjacent rows. 

The minimum payout for Buffalo Stack’n’Sync game is x0.1 while the highest is x100. Return to player (RTP) rate is up to 96.36%, making it fall into the standard range among slot games. 

Special features

Buffalo Stack’n’Sync has wild and scatter symbols like other slot games but it comes with its own unique feature. Instead of having just one special mode, Hacksaw Gaming gave it three. Specifically named Stack’n’Sync inspired by its name, Stampede Reels, and Stampede Spins. Each one is triggered by a unique combination as follows:


The titular feature is the game’s bread and butter. You just need to have at least one S’N’S symbol appearing on any real to have a randomly assigned symbol to take over that column. It is called the ‘stampede reel’ and this free feature keeps running for as long as there is one S’N’S symbol appearing or at least until the grid gets taken over completely. 

This happens frequently during a free spin, rewarding you with high rewards almost instantaneously. Each S’N’S symbol gives you a free spin and it doesn’t take away a new ante or free spin to keep going.

Free spins

You can win 10 free spins after landing 3 flaming scatter symbols represented by a horse’s galloping hooves. This triggers the scatter mode where the S’N’S can appear periodically but it’s also possible that it doesn’t appear at all. Thus, the free spin and stampede reels are not necessarily dependent on each other but they make for a great combo. 

Stampede Spins

You can get four scatter symbols instead of three which still grants only 10 free spins. However, this makes the grid filled with buffalo symbols only. Gaps between buffaloes are filled with skulls and only five of a kind count as wins. However, there will be occasional S symbols that randomly stack 5 to 60 more buffalos on the reel it appeared in. This ensures getting more frequent five of a kind each turn. 

Final verdict 

Buffalo Stack’n’Sync game has a simple gameplay that can lead directly to a series of wins amounting to x10,000 payout from a single spin. All you have to do is hit the free spin mode or get an S’N’S symbol to start the chain effect. It’s currently one of the most rewarding slot games you can play using safe low roller bets but using large antes can be even more rewarding.
