Bison Train is a North-American themed video slot game developed in 2019 by Platipus Gaming that is available on desktop, mobile, and tablet devices with a 5x4 reel and 1024 ways to win. The bonus features available include a free spins game mode, which can continue for up to 100 spins, and a wild symbol. You should get most of your money back with a 94.99% RTP. The game has an unknown win variance.
You can bet between 0.40 and 80 cash per spin.
The amount you bet each spin is adjusted using the ‘Bet’ setting in the bottom right-hand corner, on desktop versions, or on the left-hand side on mobile versions. The ‘Bet’ options are 0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.1, 0.2, 0.5, 1, and 2. Despite there being 1024 ways to win, the ‘Bet’ is multiplied by 40 fixed pay lines. For example, a ‘Line Bet’ of 0.5 will result in your ‘Total Bet’ equaling 20.
When you are ready to play, click the spin button or the ‘auto’ feature. You can also use the turbo mode to speed up gameplay.
As soon as you enter the game you are greeted with the Native American tribal music and plenty of animal sounds including birds, eagles, wolves, and more. The high-quality background image is a simple prairie with bison appearing around the reel. All payout symbols have been specially designed to stick to the theme, with a lot of attention to detail paid to the high-value animal symbols. You can mute the game’s volume in the bottom left-hand corner.
There are 11 payout symbols in Bison Trail, including 10 regular payout symbols and a scatter symbol which triggers free spins and pays out 2x, 10x, and 20x the total bet when combined 3, 4, or 5 times.
The regular symbols are split between the 5 high-value animal symbols – Ram, Wolf, Cougar, Eagle, and Bison – and 6 low-value symbols – 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A. The Bison and 9 symbols can be combined 2, 3, 4, or 5 times, while the rest (including the scatter symbol) can only be combined 3 – 5 times. The Bison is the highest paying symbol, offering 300 coins when combined 5 times.
This game has 1024 ways to win, with combinations forming from left to right adjacent reels. For more information, visit the bottom of the paytable to see how payout symbols are/aren’t combined.
How to Read the Paytable
The paytable lists the number of coins you win when landing winning combinations. To calculate the cash value of your payout, multiply your selected ‘Line Bet’ by the number of coins you won. For example, a 300 coin payout is worth 150 cash if you use a 0.5 ‘Line Bet’ (300 coins x 0.5).
Free Games: You will be awarded 8, 15, and 20 free spins when you land 3, 4, or 5 scatter symbols. In addition the free spins, you will also receive a payout for landing the scatter symbol. During free games, each wild symbol that appears on reels 2, 3, or 4 will multiply the total win for that free spin by either 2 or 3 (not applicable for scatter wins). The total win for any free spin may be multiplied up to 27. During free spins, you can trigger this bonus feature again by landing scatter symbols 2, 3, 4, or 5 times. The same bet used in normal gameplay is used during free spins.
The Wild Symbol available in Bison Trail can substitute for all symbols except Scatter and can only appear on reels 2, 3, or 4 during normal and free spins gameplay.
