Barcrest Just Launched Boulder Bucks Pokie Machine
Boulder Bucks takes us back in time to our ancestors and their life surrounded by dinosaurs. But there is nothing scary or grim about this game. The symbols have a cartoon look and resemble the Flintstone family, giving the entire game a funny tone.
The number of pay lines is only 10 so the minimum bet is set at 10 cents. Still Boulder Bucks can be a great game for high rollers because the maximum bet can go up to $500 per spin.
There are a few bonus features which add excitement to the overall design with the potential to pay big. Barcrest software did a really good job with this pokie and he hope they will keep up with the same quality in their future releases.
What We love
This is one rare video pokie game where we can say we love everything about it. The game doesn’t get boring after longer sessions because of the fun background music and often winnings.
The bonus rounds are great. We love the fact that you can choose between 3 different free spins features. We especially love the expanding sticky and flying wilds in the last two features.
The fact that you can forfeit your winnings and try another feature is also great, because this increases your chances of winning more. The Big Bet game is also a great addition to the pokie and can come in handy if you are playing with a big bankroll.
What We Do not Like
We already said that we like everything there is about this pokie so there is really nothing that we would like to change. Boulder Bucks is just a perfect game and has everything a gambler desires.
We had a chance to try this game for real and we can definitely recommend it for real play. We can put it in the category of mid to high variance video pokie games. This is probably the first game we’ve seen where the provider promotes a higher RTP value if you play on bets over $2.
This just adds to our opinion that Boulder Bucks is designed for high roller players, along with the fact that the maximum bet per spin allowed is set at $500. The bonus rounds are great.
The Egg Pick bonus usually awards small winning but can also trigger the U-pick bonus. The free spins features are interesting especially the Saber Toothed Tiger and the Pterodactyl game.
These were our starting picks and we had a win of about 600 x bet in the Saber Toothed Tiger. You need a lot of luck to get 2 or 3 wilds on the central reels in order to win big, but it does happen. If you get some of the higher paying symbols on the first and last reel you can even have wins of over 1,000 x bet in the bonus round.
The Pterodactyl feature is also very interesting. If you get 2 wild symbols on reel 4 or 5 you are definitely looking at a really big win. We can recommend that you try this game for real play and hope you get a lot of big wins on your screen.
