Aristocrat, through its online real money gaming division Anaxi, has announced Buffalo™ will debut as an online slot, starting in New Jersey.

Simultaneously, BetMGM has announced it will be the first online operator to launch the Buffalo slot. Those in NJ can now enjoy the 5×4, 20-line slot game on BetMGM in the state and the operator plans on giving Pennsylvania and Michigan online casino players the opportunity shortly.

Cath Burns, Chief Operating Officer of Anaxi commented: “Bringing a title like Buffalo, one of the most iconic slot machine titles to iGaming is so exciting, our customers and their players can’t wait to play it online.
