Cool Buck 5 Reels Slot Machine

Cool Buck is a familiar name to many players that have played slot machines from Microgaming in the past. It’s what they called one of their 3 reel slot machines. Well, we’re getting a version with 5 reels now, which probably means that the classic title had a lot of fans. The game not only has 5 reels instead of 3 now, it also offers 9 lines instead of the original 5.

You will have free spins, wild symbols that can be regular or super stacked, as well as scatters, for the features that will keep you entertained.

Betting and Prizes

The slot delivers a total of 9 lines and you can use the wagers on them as you see fit. You seem to have the lines fixed, but you can play around with the coins and denominations, so if you want to you can spend just a couple of cents, or you can go significantly higher.

Microgaming doesn’t typically try to impress with its fixed payouts, though games with progressive jackpots are a different matter. I wouldn’t expect a huge payout out of Cool Buck 5 Reels either.


Some features of Cool Buck are just as expected, but Microgaming did a good thing here as well, and they worked extra on the free spins feature and the way you get it.

For the regular features, check out the wild symbol first, with the Cool Buck Logo representing it on the paytable and the reels. You use this one as any other substitute, so as long as it lands in the right spot, and the other positions for the combo are filled with regular symbols, they can work together and they will bring you a win.

Something else to notice while you play the game is the purple star that sometimes appears next to symbols on the reels. You will see how the star moves to the right upper corner, increasing the number of free spins. Eventually, you are able to trigger the free spins that you collect there, when you land 3+ scatter symbols.

The slot’s scatter is the Cool Buck, the dollar bill that was turned into a funny character. You seem to get a base number of free spins, plus the ones that you collect along the way.

Theme & Design

The theme of a game like Cool Buck mixes the classics and the dollar bill that is in the main role. As supporting symbols, they went with the Dollar Sign and with a logo, but the low paying symbols get Bar logos and some boring Royals, so for the most part there is nothing special here.

Whether you’re looking at the 3 reel game, or the 5 reel one, the graphics will mostly be the same. This will be good for those that want to try out the new title because they loved the original classic, but new players will not be happy about these graphics since they come in 2017 and they have a lot of competition.


Cool Buck is an interesting choice for a 5 reel game, but I feel that it’s going to be enjoyed mostly by the players that want to try out the classics and games that are based on them. It’s not a game for everyone.
