A Mix of Classic Buffalo Theme with Modern-Day Elements

The first impression is of a classic, ever-green game with the popular buffalo theme in place, sprinkled with eye-catching, electrifying modern-day twists. The action is set in the great North American outdoors, in a place packed with images of rocky ridges, cacti, and plenty of scrub and lightning. 

The 10 through Ace symbols are low-paying symbols in the game. They are worth 1.2x to 2.5x the stake. The wolf, cougar, eagle, and snake symbols are high-paying symbols that bring players 2x-3x the bet. 

When seen in the base game, the colt symbol is worth up to 6x the stake. The Super Colt symbol is only visible in the free spins round. It pays 12x the stake when six identical symbols are seen popping on the reels. When landing on reels two to four, the colt turns into the wild and replaces all symbols except for the scatter symbols and the horseshoe symbols.

Colt Strikes, Rapid Re-Spins, and Super Colt Spins

The one-of-a-kind layout comes with three features that nicely complement one another during gameplay: Colt Strikes, Rapid Re-Spins, and Super Colt Spins. When the Colt Strike feature is engaged, players watch the Colt symbols increase in size and considerably boost the potential of any non-winning round. 

If the horseshoe symbol is seen landing on the third reel, it automatically engages the Rapid Re-Spins feature. The latter brings players a new opportunity to potentially enjoy a big win while seeing the height of the reel grow by one row. The maximum payout is set to 3x. 

To activate the Free Spins round, players must land all three scatter symbols. When this occurs, the original color of the colt symbol changes during the bonus round while the symbol’s value goes up two times. 

The company’s head of game retention George Olekszy spoke about the supplier’s attention to detail throughout the game and the features that turn Colt Lightning into an “entertaining game that is easy to follow”.

Last week, Play’n GO launched Legion Gold, a new slot with Mega Free Spins, Gold Re-Spins, and Multiplying Wilds.
