As we roll inexorably towards another month’s end, fans of online and mobile slot machines are surely looking forward to the release of new titles from Microgaming. April promises to be a good month, as the world’s leading digital gambling software company is set to release the new mobile slot game, Cool Buck.
Cool Buck is a 5-reel, 9-payline sequel to the original Cool Buck mobile slot game, which offered classic 3-reel, 5-line game play. This new version has the same basic symbols, but with better graphics and a lot more features to look forward to.
Cool Buck 5-Reel Mobile Slot Game
Cool Buck stars a rolled up note with cartoon style arms, legs, eyes and gleaming smile on his face. He’s cool, he’s a buck, and he’s prepared to pay some big wins to the game’s luckiest players. Cool Buck is the Scatter symbol, while the game’s namesake logo is the Wild. Other symbols include stacks of money, loose change, and bars.
For once, I can’t complain about those generic playing card symbols Microgaming is so notorious for using. In this mobile slot game, they are actually beneficial to players. The values 9, 10, J, Q, K and A are the only symbols that can carry the special Purple Star icon.
The Cool Buck Logo is the Wild, and it’s by no means an ordinary wild. While it does play the traditional role of substituting for all other symbol besides Scatters, it always falls Super Stacked on an entire reel whenever it appears. Plus, it’s capable of landing on any, or all, of the 5 reels, at any time (base game or free spins mode).
Cool Buck 5-Reel Slot Overall
All in all, the new Cool Buck mobile slot game appears highly entertaining and much more feature rich than its predecessor, which was little more than a cookie cutter design of every 3-reel classic slot that came before it.
Cool Buck 5 Reel is set for official release at Microgaming powered online casinos sometime in early April. Until then, we will be unable to tell whether the game is equipped with a low, medium or high volatility. Based on the official Microgaming Cool Buck Promo Video and its 9-line classification, the mobile slot game is most likely going to fall into the low to medium range.
