Microgaming, one of the biggest software provider, has given us many traditional pokies. Some of these are very simple, like City Of Gold, while others are slightly more advanced and have interesting and modern twists. Cool Buck is one one of the latter, in that instead of having just one active payline in has five, namely three horizontal and two diagonal ones. This means only one thing; profit opportunities are increased.
Although Cool Buck has five active paylines, it can still be categorised as a classical pokie because it has three reels and three rows. Moreover, the symbols used are the famous bars, cherries and sevens. The only additional symbol is, of course, the dollar symbol. The coin value in this pokie can be adjusted in two different levels.
What is mostly interesting in this case is the fact, as we already mentioned, that there is more than one active payline. This is certainly not a typical characteristic of classical pokie, but is definitely a welcomed novelty. Needless to say, for each line you decide to activate, the bets get bigger. However, as we always say, the more activated paylines, the bigger are the profit opportunities.
The golden dollar symbol acts as a wild symbol, and as such it can replace other symbols to help you out with payouts. For instance, if you get two sevens and a dollar sign, this would be equivalent to a line of sevens and would be equivalent to 300 extra credits in your account.
What is also very important about the dollar sign is that it is the symbol that gives out the biggest payout. It is different from the other symbols in that the amount of credits earned vary depending on which line the winning combination forms. The middle horizontal payline is the least paid off, and still wins amount to 1, 000 points. However, your target for Cool Buck should be to line up three dollar symbols on the fifth payline, that is the one stretching from the lower left corner up to the upper right corner. When this happens, you will be granted 6, 000 credits!
Other than this, there isn’t much to say. Take a look at the paytable because it won’t be difficult to see how profits can be made. There you can see, for instance, that the cherries give out money even when not lined up in threes, or how much each of the different bar combination is worth. Anyway, everything is pretty straightforward and basically all you have to do is spin the reels and enjoy yourselves.
Once again, we should say that Cool Buck might be mostly suited to the nostalgic players that are probably looking for a simple way of having fun while making some money. Those who like more modern pokies won’t really appreciate this one. Nevertheless, Microgaming offers a very vast range of pokies, so certainly everyone can find whatever he or she is looking for. Moreover, we have pokies from other software producers which you can try for free.
