South Florida Stampede: Seminole Hard Rock Debuts Buffalo Link Slots

Written By JR Duren on June 4, 2021
Award-winning slot maker Aristocrat debuts new Buffalo Link game at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino & Resort Hollywood in South Florida.

In the movies, grizzled cowboys run for cover when they sense the earth-shaking rumble of a buffalo stampede.

In South Florida, the arrival of heralded slot game Buffalo Link should have the opposite effect–gamblers will flock to the gleaming new terminal in Seminole Hard Rock Casino & Resort Hollywood.

“We’re ecstatic to add Buffalo Link to the lineup of slot games on our casino floor,” Seminole Hollywood Vice President of Slot Operations said in a press release. “This combination of two player favorites is another way we can provide our guests with a thrilling gaming experience.”

Seminole Hollywood is the first casino in the state to offer the game, which debuted across the country this week.

Buffalo Link builds upon Dragon Link favorite features

Buffalo Link’s creator, Aristocrat Technologies Inc., also created well-known slot games Lightning Link and Dragon Link, as well as Buffalo Diamond and Buffalo Gold.

Like its predecessors, Buffalo Link is a multi-denomination game with the hold-and-spin feature that’s a popular feature of Dragon Link.

In addition, the game features:

  • Bonuses within bonuses
  • Multipliers and frequent re-triggers
  • Mystery must-hit-by bonuses that award free games or the hold-and-spin feature

The game is housed in Aristocrat’s MarsX Portrait cabinet, which affords players 4K graphics, excellent sound, and vibrant LED signage.

And, according to Aristocrat, Buffalo Link is the “most highly anticipated game ever to appear on the Eilers-Fantini [slot] survey.”

“We are excited to bring Buffalo Link to the gaming industry,” Aristocrat Senior Vice President of Commercial Strategy and Business Analytics Jon Hanlin said in a press release. “This is an incredibly fun game that fans of Buffalo, Lightning Link and Dragon Link will love, and we are delighted to celebrate its arrival at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood.”

Award-winning Aristocrat a top-performer in slots gaming

Buffalo Link is the latest in a line of slot games that have put Aristocrat at the forefront of slot gaming in the United States.

The company won “Best Overall Supplier of Slot Content” at  the 2020 Eilers & Krejcik Gaming Slot Awards in Las Vegas, as well as seven awards for their games and cabinets:

  • Top-performing new video reel core game: Buffalo Gold Revolution
  • Top-performing new premium game: Buffalo Diamond
  • Top-performing new cabinet (core): MarsX
  • Top-performing new cabinet (premium): flame55
