Cool buck Classic Online Pokie

April 1, 2017


Microgaming has announced that its April releases will include a popular classic pokie converted to the video pokie format. The title is Cool Buck. Till Cool Buck 5 reels goes live next week you can enjoy original version of this game.

Cool Buck is a rolled up currency note that directs the pokie game from outside. The 3-reels pokie has five paylines across three rows of symbols in the usual format. You can activate up to 5 paylines, but it would be suicidal to play without enabling all of them. The cherries symbol pays for any one, any two or all three. Other symbols pay only when they appear on all three reels of an enabled payline. There are the single bar, double bar and triple bar symbols paying in like and mixed combinations. Then there is the 7 symbol.

The main symbol in Cool Buck is the $ sign. It is a wild symbol. Appearing alone or as any two it will automatically award the payouts for the cherries symbol. When it appears in all reels on a payline it awards the top payouts. The payout depends on the payline. On payline 1, the payout for three $ symbols is 1000 coins and on payline 5 the payout is 6,000 coins. You play with one coin per payline, the size of which ranges from AU$0.25 to AU$5.00. The maximum total bet per spin is AU$25 and the top payout in credits works to AU$30,000.

Last year Microgaming had released the 5-reels version of another popular classic pokie titled Bar Bar Black Sheep. The 3-reels version, which is still available at Australian online casinos like Casino Mate and Royal Vegas, is reviewed here. It is a single payline online pokie in which you can play up to three coins. Instead of the cherries symbol of Cool Buck there is a bag of wool and instead of 7 there is the white sheep. The three bar symbols pay out in the usual manner. The top paying combination is unusual and reflects the name of the pokie. You need single bar on reel 1, single bar on reel 2 and black sheep on reel 3 or bar bar black sheep. Except for the jackpot payout all other are in proportion to the number of coins. The jackpot payout with one coin is 500 coins, with two coins is 1,000 coins and with three coins is 1,600 coins. The black sheep symbol otherwise acts as a wild symbol with a 3x multiplier property.
