Back BetMGM NJ is the First Online Casino to Kick Off Land-Based Buffalo Slot

BetMGM, one of the most widely respected iGaming and sports betting operators is proud to announce another significant expansion of its online portfolio. Players visiting its New Jersey digital platform are given an exclusive opportunity to explore the Buffalo, a 5x4 slot machine with 20 paylines.

Making this very launch particularly interesting is the fact that this game is actually a huge hit in land-based casinos. Initially developed by Aristocrat, the game was transformed and adapted for online casino platforms by its online real money gaming business Anaxi.

Online Debut for Players’ Favorite Land-Based Slot

Being a players’ favorite in land-based casinos for more than a decade, the Buffalo slot machine by Aristocrat is bound to have great success among fans of online gambling as well. Packed with a solid number of paylines, this adventurous installment sees players filling the screen with Buffalo symbols, hoping to collect huge wins.

Following the game’s online premiere, Matt Prevost, Chief Revenue Officer, BetMGM said:

“We are ready to bring the thrill and excitement of Buffalo to our players in New Jersey and additional states this fall. Anaxi captured the fast-paced elements of Buffalo which players love and are now able to experience in the palm of their hands.”

As far as the company announced, following the ice-breaking introduction in New Jersey, the game will be presented to audiences from Pennsylvania and Michigan as well.

Unstoppable Growth

Packed with more than 1,500 games, including the most attractive jackpots, BetMGM’s award-winning online casino represents a top destination even for the most demanding fans of digital one-armed bandits. Speaking of JPs, the company has so far awarded approximately $75 million in jackpots in the first half of the current year.

Striving to retain its leading position in the iGaming sector, BetMGM continues to set foot into new jurisdictions. In June this year, the company launched a mobile sports betting platform in Puerto Rico, while March was marked with a launch in Massachusetts.

As a strong promoter of responsible gaming, the corporation keeps educating players on how to stay safe while gambling online. Thanks to the integration of GameSense, an industry-leading program, developed, and certified by the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC), customers can directly access responsible gaming tools.

Milestone Partnerships

Worth reminding is that a strategic deal between Anaxi and BetMGM was announced in February 2023, with Buffalo being the first of the best-in-class games available at BetMGM. Thanks to this cooperation, the operator got the opportunity to exhibit Aristocrat’s content in emerging North American iGaming markets.

In March, Anaxi entered a deal with Caesars Sportsbook & Casino, a division of Caesars Entertainment, Inc. Present in New Jersey, Michigan, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Ontario, this gaming powerhouse enabled the company to deliver its products in some of the busiest casino markets.

Anaxi itself was established in February 2022, as a combined online Real Money Gaming and Customer Experience Solutions business. A couple of months later, in October, Aristocrat introduced it as the new name and brand for this emerging business.
