Buffet Bonanza, rather than being a rotund persons wildest dream, is actually a restaurant themed video slot from Microgaming. This one will have you chanting ‘food glorious food’ as it includes wilds, free spin scatters, win gambles and the chance to win big in the Buffet Feature. The non-progressive jackpot is set at $24,000 on the highest stakes which would be more than enough to go for a few slap up meals at a swanky restaurant!
Buffet Bonanza Slot Theme
Buffet Bonanza is set within a classy restaurant where culinary delight is served as standard. The reels are presented upon a golden platter titled on a table with each reel containing three gastronomic themed icons.
Glazed ham, lobster, cakes, salad and one hungry looking diner accompany 9, 10, J, Q, K and A icons on the reels. The Diner wildly digs into his stacked plate when involved in a win whilst the scatter platter is raised to reveal the tasty treats within. The remaining icons flash to mark any win.
The designers have used fairly ordinary sound effects to accompany regular gameplay although some bespoke sound bites are used during bonus games and free spins.
Betting Options and Other Functions
This slot offers multiple betting options with a maximum of 500 coins per spin. Coin values vary from 1 cent to 0.20 which combined with the 1 to 25 paylines and 1 to 10 coins per line creates a 0.01 to $/£/€100 bet range.
Any win can be doubled or quadrupled by pressing the gamble button (in expert mode). This presents a screen where you must guess the card color or suit. A correct color guess will double your win and guessing the correct suit will quadruple it. Be aware that the there is a bet limit and any incorrect guesses will wipe out your winnings.
Buffet Bonanza Slot Features
The Diner symbol will substitute for all symbols (except scatters) when a winning opportunity presents itself. During normal play this symbol will only appear on the middle reel but can appear on reels 2 and 4 during the free spins feature.
Three or more scattered buffet icons will award ten free spins with double multipliers. Wins are further helped along by sticky wilds which are added to reels two and four when the feature begins. An additional wild is added for each spin which makes wins much more certain (but not guaranteed).
Scatter wins are paid when two, three, four or five buffet cart icons appear. This awards 2, 5, 20 or 200 times your bet respectively which can be paid during normal play and free spins.
The Buffet Feature is linked directly to the diner wild. When this appears on reel three an expanding wild occurs. The reels then respin and pies are launched at the screen to create more diner symbols on other reels which awards prizes accordingly.
Our Take on Buffet Bonanza
I’m no food critic but am partial to this tasty themed slot. It offers an uncompromising lineup of features and the design looks good enough to eat. This is one for the masses too because bets can be placed from 1 penny with a progressive set of wagers that will satisfy all.
