Buffalo Power Pay

This latest addition to Aristocrat’s signature game franchise is featured on the immersive King Max cabinet. The game features a unique multi-reel bonus feature and progressive bonus event that can trigger a progressive starting at $1 million.

The base game is a five-reel, four-row, 1,024 ways-to-win video slot. The title bonus is triggered by three or more “Flaming Buffalo” symbols. This opens up a random number of extra reel sets stacked above the main screen. From one to four Power Pay reel windows can add more buffalo symbols, wild symbols and multipliers for a potentially huge win.

Other bonus symbols can trigger a wheel feature. Potential bonuses including four free-game sessions—from 20 “Mini Free Games” to 50 “Mega Free Games”—and the $1 million Power Grand Jackpot scroll from top to bottom until one lines up with the arrows.

Free game triggering symbols also can land in the primary game, awarding up to 50 free games.
