Microgaming's old Cool Buck 3 reel slot is a classic game that has proven to be very successful over the several years its been on the market. In an effort to freshen things up a bit with the brand, Microgaming has released the Cool Buck 5 Reel slot, which brings the same basic money theme to players in an updated game. This new slot has a familiar look and feel, and while it doesn't have a lot of bonus features, those familiar with the old game will likely still enjoy it.
Cool Buck 5 Reel is a 5 reel, 9 payline slot that has the basic green background that you'd see in the old classic slot. The game's symbols are a combination of the simple slot basics (9, 10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace) as well as a bar symbol, stack of cash, dollar sign with coin, rolled bill character, and game title symbol.
The game's bonus features include wilds, stacked wilds, scatter symbols and free spin. The game has a posted Return to Player (RTP) percentage of 96%, which is pretty high for an online slot. These features are pretty basic, but they do pop up frequently, which makes them valuable.
Cool Buck 5 Reel can be played on both desktop and mobile devices, and there's absolutely no difference in playability of visuals in between. The experience itself is decent, but certainly not groundbreaking. You'll find that the game is very basic, which may be by design, as the classic 3 reel game is the same way. I tried the game on my desktop and found myself entertained for a few minutes, but eventually wanted to head on to something a bit more "substantial". Still, if you're a fan of the original game, you should definitely one that you should try
