Boulder Bucks is a feature rich slot machine
from the well know slot manufacture Barcrest.
Boulder Bucks has a colorful stone age theme and
they have really made this theme work with the
different features they offer in this slot
machine. As many slots from this provider,
Boulder Bucks has a Big Bet feature. Personally
I'm a big fan of features like this, and on this
lot machine they have used the concept in a nice
way. As usual for the Big Bet games, the max win
potential isnt that high for the bet to win
relation as Big Bets are played on the line
stake of a 2.00 game, while you pay 20.00 or
30.00 to play it. Another really interesting
thing about this game is that the payout
percentage can be affected a lot by which
choices you do in the free spin feature. Using
the Big Bet feature, the payout percentage can
actually range from a really low 77.91% to a
high 98.00%. Have in
mind that unless you do a really bad choice
where you keep a low win when if offers you to
spin the feature again, the payout percentage
will be pretty good for this slot machine.

First of all, I would like to explain a bit
about the Big Bet feature that's available on
Boulder Bucks. This is a bet that can be
played to increase the bonus game hit frequency
in this game. It's available in 2 bet sizes, one
20 bet and one 30 bet. Both of the bets will
be played at a normal 2 per spin bet size, and
wins will pay the same as from a 2 spin. Each
of the Big Bets will give you 5 spins that are
played straight after each other on auto-spin.
It might sound like a really bad deal to pay 20
or 30 for 5 spins at a 2 stake, but the nice
thing about the Big Bet feature is that it gives
you much more frequent bonus features. I'll
explain the differences between the normal spins
and the two Big Bet options in the below
section where the difference are taking place.
Boulder Bucks has normal wild symbols on reel 2,
3 and 4 during the base game. These symbols
substitute for all other symbols except the
Boulder Bucks bonus symbols and the Pick Me Egg
symbols. During the free spins several other
wild features are made available, and I will
explain each of them in the below section where
the different free spin features are explained.
The game can be played in bet sizes from 0.10
to 500 for regular single spins, and at 20 or
30 for the Big Bet spins. The winning
combinations pay out different prizes depending
on the bet size, for more information about
this you can check the paytable that is listed at the bottom of
Big Bet feature: Here I'll try to explain
the difference between the two Big Bet options.
Both the 20 and the 30 Big Bet will buy you 5
spins that are played directly after each other.
During these spins all payouts are the same as
if you play 2 per spin. What makes it special
is that the frequency of bonus features is a lot
higher during the Big Bet spins. Both the
different bets give you the possibility to
trigger the free spin feature up to five times,
that means that you can trigger it once for each
of the 5 spins.
During the 20 Big Bet spins you are playing
with the Boulder Smash bonus activated. A
special feature is triggered if you get the
bonus symbol on reel 1, and 3 but misses it on
the 5th reel. Then a caveman will jump into the
screen and give you a pick me bonus where you
get a 1 out of 3 chance to find the bonus
symbol, if you find it the bonus will be
If you chose to play the 30 Big Bet spins, you
are playing with the Mega Boulder Smash bonus
activated. Here it's enough to get 2 bonus
symbols in total on reel 1, 3 or 5. As long as
you have two bonus symbols in any of the
positions, the caveman will appear and give you
a 1 out of 3 chance to trigger the bonus
Pick me bonus: It's possible to get a big
white egg on reel number 2, 3 and 4. If you get
a total of 3 eggs, a pick me bonus is triggered.
You get to pick one of the 3 eggs, and whatever
it hides, you'll win it. The egg can hide cash
prizes or activate the free spin feature. Cash
prizes won with normal bets are shown as a
multiplier that will be multiplied to the total
bet per spin, while cash prizes won during a Big
Bet spin will show as a multiplier and be
multiplied with the total bet per line!
Free spins bonus: The free spin feature
can be triggered in two ways on this slot
machine. One of them is by the pick me feature
in the egg bonus, which I have explained above.
The other and more usual way to trigger them, is
by getting a bonus symbol on reel 1, 3 and 5.
During normal spins this exact combination is
needed, while it gives you additional ways to
trigger it during the Big Bets, this is also
explained earlier in this slot review.
the bonus symbols that trigger the bonus will
have a number written on it, and it can be 1, 2
or 3. The number on your triggering combination
tells how many tries and picks you get in the free spins.
When you trigger the bonus a choice of 3
different spin and wild combinations are
offered, and it's up to you to pick one. After you have
played the selected feature, you get a chance to reject the outcome
of your bonus and play one of the other bonuses.
This is possible 1 or 2 times depending on if
you got 2 or 3 on the bonus symbol. This is
where the strategy part of the game is, will you
get a better outcome in one of the other bonus features than
the one you just had? That's what you have to
decide, and this is where you can affect the
payout percentage yourself.
Here are the 3 different free spin features that
can be picked: Mammoth spins: Rewards you
with 20 free spins with expanding wild symbols
on reel 2, 3 and 4. Pterodactyl spins:
Here you get 10 free spins with wild symbols on
reel 2, 3 and 4, these symbols expand sideways
in the left
Tiger spins: The last option gives you 6
free spins with expanding and sticky wilds on
reel 2, 3 and 4. These wilds will stick to the
reels for all the remaining spins.
