Buffalo Diamond

Aristocrat is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the industry-topping Buffalo video slot brand with a new game offering the traditional high volatility and free games of Buffalo in the Reel Power ways-to-win format that uses a 4-5-6-5-4 reel array (four symbols on the outer reels, five symbols on reels 2 and 4, six symbols on the center reel). In this configuration, the game offers 2,400 possible ways to win on every spin.

Buffalo Diamond features a wide-area progressive top jackpot that resets at $500,000. It also is the first game in the Buffalo franchise to appear on the new flame55 cabinet.

The game expands upon Buffalo’s most popular feature, the free-game bonus, in a unique scheme. During the base game, players may randomly collect purple, blue or green diamond symbols on the fifth reel, which progresses the free games pool. When the free-game feature is triggered with like diamond symbols, the player receives the number of spins accumulated as diamonds of that color.

Buffalo Diamond also offers a unique wheel feature where the player receives 4X on all pays in free games, 3X all pays in free games, 2X all pays in free games, “Regular Free Games” and the Grand Progressive (only available at max bet).

As in the Classic Buffalo game, during the Free Games Bonus, two or more scattered coins will trigger additional free games, and Free Games Sunsets are wild and reveal 2X or 3X win multipliers with corresponding wins.

Buffalo Diamond was custom-built for the flame55 cabinet. For example, the graphics power of flame55 allows for the first 4K release of Buffalo featuring updated character symbols in Buffalo, Eagle, Wolf, Cougar, Elk, Royals, Coins and Sunsets.

The flame55 cabinet feature a 55-inch, double-curved monitor, the largest portrait double-curved display in the non-jumbo segment.
