The buffalo theme seems to creep up every now and then in the online casino sector. I’ve seen it on numerous games and bonuses, and now it has its very own online casino. There’s clearly something about these majestic animals that seems to capture the imaginations of casino developers.
Buffalo Spins is a Jumpman Gaming casino that offers stacks of games and top bonuses, but also has a few notable flaws. Check out the following Buffalo Spins review to learn more.
If you have played any of the countless Jumpman Gaming casinos out there, you’ll know what to expect from the Buffalo Spins welcome bonus. As always, it offers up to 500 free spins (this time on the 9 Masks of Fire slot) and everyone who deposits £10 or more has a chance of triggering them.
The wagering requirement for this bonus is 65x and applies to all free spin winnings. It’s a pretty hefty requirement, but it’s not the only one.
The welcome bonus also has a maximum conversion that’s equal to your lifetime deposits. It means that if you deposit £100 and win £500 via the free spins, you can use that £500 to get through the wagering requirements but will lose all but £100 when those terms have been met.
What’s more, every time you make a deposit of £20 or more thereafter, you’ll get another shot at opening the Loot Chest. It’s the same bonus, but it’s better, as your lifetime deposits will be higher, so your maximum conversion may increase as well.
Buffalo Spins also has a loyalty promotion based around challenges and trophies. In the end, it’s still a scheme that benefits high rollers more than small stake players, but the way it’s structured means everyone can collect trophies and pick up rewards.
Bingo Games and More
You can’t fault the games room on Buffalo Spins. Trust me, I’ve tried. There are a few things that this site doesn’t get right, but this definitely isn’t one of them.
There are hundreds of games spanning dozens of categories, including video slots, bonus slots, jackpot slots, scratch cards, lottery games, and bingo rooms. The latter are all hooked into the Jumpman Gaming network, with live games of 30-ball, 75-ball, 80-ball, and 90-ball bingo offering regular 5-figure jackpots.
The games are all instant play, including the live casino and the bingo rooms. This applies to both desktop users and mobile users and as Buffalo Spins works with most browsers, you shouldn’t have an issue getting these games to work.
Deposits and Withdrawals
And now for the elephant—or buffalo—in the room.
First, the withdrawals are slow. The operator may sit on withdrawals for a couple of days, which means it could take a few days to get your cash. Most modern casinos offer instant withdrawals thanks to web wallets and Faster Payments, so Buffalo Spins is lagging behind.
Secondly, and most notably, there is a withdrawal fee of £2.50. This fixed fee is applied to all withdrawals—there’s no escaping it.
£2.50 might not seem like much, but if you’re withdrawing £20 or even £10, it accounts for a sizeable percentage of the total amount. More importantly, there’s no need for that fee to exist. I know that most casinos are charged fees for processing payments, but if the vast majority of sites absorb those fees then there’s clearly no need for Buffalo Spins to pass them on to players.
On the plus side, Buffalo Spins accepts debit cards and PayPal, as well as Paysafecard and Pay by Mobile. Where the latter is concerned, you will also be charged £2.50 for deposits. This charge comes from the payment provider and not the casino, but it’s still worth keeping in mind as it means you could lose £5 depositing and withdrawing.
Buffalo Spins Review Summary 3/5
In the past, I haven’t exactly been full of praise when it comes to Jumpman Gaming casinos. They are a mixed bag. The themes are usually bland. The withdrawals are slow and the withdrawal fees are a terrible addition. But the gaming selection is excellent and the bonuses are brilliant too.
It’s a similar story with Buffalo Spins, but this is one of those rare Jumpman sites that actually has a good theme. It’s not on the level of Foxy Games and Wink Slots, but it looks okay and it stands out, which is all you really need.
On the whole, it’s worth signing up, making a deposit, collecting the welcome bonus, and seeing what you can get out of it. It’s a long way from being the best site I have seen, and unless you’re a complete novice, you’ll have the same reaction. But sometimes mediocre is all you need, especially when it’s backed by welcome bonuses, loyalty programs, and the peace of mind that comes from playing with one of the UK’s biggest operators
