Buffalo Strike! Aristocrat Gaming

Buffalo Strike! Aristocrat Gaming

Aristocrat continues its most successful franchise with this new, feature-rich version on the Mars Flex Single cabinet.

The base game is a five-reel, 1,024-ways-to-win video slot (five-by-four configuration) with five jackpots—static prizes of $60 (Mini) and $120 (Minor) and progressives resetting at $150 (Maxi), $500 (Major) and $5,000 (Grand).

The classic Buffalo bonus features are present in three separate “Stampede” bonuses, triggered during the “Strike Mode.” Every eight to 12 minutes, a three-minute Strike Mode activates for the entire bank, during which players can win credit prizes, one of the jackpots, or one of the Stampede features—Ultra Stampede, Mega Stampede or Super Stampede.

During the Stampede features, up to 25 buffaloes run across the screen, each awarding credit prizes that accumulate to a total that can run into the hundreds of dollars.

There are two unique free-spin features. In the standard Free Games bonus, the players can land accumulating buffalo symbols that unlock up to three more reel sets. The four reel matrices appear on the screen, each of the top three indicating how many more buffalo symbols will unlock the new screen. The remainder of the free games play out on all unlocked screens, results on each contributing to the overall bonus.

The Super Free Games bonus starts with all four reel sets active. Both free-game features can be retriggered, and the jackpots are available in both.
