Players walk down the winding dirt roads of an endless canyon, bumping into mischievous and clever pooches along the way in Buster's Bones
, a 6x6 video slot featuring cascading reels, free spins, and the cluster pays game mechanic.
When Buster appears on the gaming grid, he quickly sniffs out any bones and gobbles them up. This magically turns the bones into wilds and adds up their values to create a powerful multiplier that he carries on his collar. Once he is done eating, Buster remains on the reels until the next spin. However, during this time, he can turn himself into a wild and boost any cluster wins that he takes part in with his multiplier.
The real fun begins when Buster sticks around for the entire bonus round, gradually increasing his cluster-win multiplier with each passing bone. If a player lands one or two scatters during the bonus round, they can receive one or three additional spins, respectively, giving them even more chances to collect bones toward Buster’s multiplier.
Each time a player hits a cluster win, it will trigger the Avalanche mechanic. After the payout, the winning symbols disappear and are replaced by new icons that fall into their empty spots. The Avalanche mechanic keeps going until there are no more winning clusters.
The Buster’s Bone feature is triggered when the aforementioned main character prowls onto the reels alongside at least one bone symbol. During this feature, Buster gobbles up any bone he can find on his journey. After he devours each bone, they magically turn into wilds that can substitute for all paying symbols. Once Buster collects all of the bones, he tallies up their value (+1, +2, +3, and +5) to create a powerful cluster win multiplier that he carries with him. He takes the spot of the last eaten bone, turns himself into a wild and enhances cluster wins if he participates in matching the paying symbols.
The game also features a buy feature button where players can purchase instant entry into the dog saloon for 8 free spins at 60x the original wager.
