New casino space home to 50 Buffalo™-themed games

21 April 2022

Biloxi, Miss.  – Today casino players across South Mississippi have a new reason to cheer “Buffalooooo!” as Aristocrat Gaming™ and MGM Resorts International’s Beau Rivage Resort & Casino announce the opening of the Mississippi Gulf Coast’s first ‘Buffalo Zone™.

Located on the resort’s casino floor at the base of the convention level escalators, the new 1,500-square-foot ‘Buffalo Zone’ is dedicated exclusively to Aristocrat’s exciting Buffalo™-themed games. This room features 50 player-favorites, such as Buffalo Chief™, Buffalo Max™, Buffalo Gold™, Buffalo Link™, Buffalo Gold Revolution™, and Buffalo Grand™ while complementing the 47 other Buffalo-themed games throughout the casino floor.

“Beau Rivage is the first Gulf Coast casino to partner with Aristocrat Gaming to bring the ‘Buffalo Zone’ to the region,” said Beau Rivage President and COO Brandon Dardeau. “Buffalo games are extremely popular among our players and having the opportunity to create a special gaming section allows us to further enhance our guests’ gaming experience.”

Aristocrat’s Senior Vice President of Commercial Strategy and Data Analytics Jon Hanlin said, “We’re thrilled to partner with Beau Rivage to launch Mississippi’s second ‘Buffalo Zone.’ We’ve had great response since opening the first Buffalo Zone last summer at Beau Rivage’s sister resort Gold Strike Casino Resort in Tunica and expect similar reaction on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Buffalo continues to be the strongest brand in gaming, and with Beau Rivage’ new ‘Buffalo Zone,’ players will enjoy all their favorite Buffalo-themed games in one exciting place.”
