Buffalo joins the herd at BetMGM in Ontario

The slot will now be available online for BetMGM customers in Ontario

BetMGM has announced that land-based casino favourite Buffalo will now be available at its online casino in Ontario.

Developed by Aristocrat, Buffalo spent over a decade as a slot at brick and mortar casinos before being reimagined by Anaxi, Aristocrat’s online Real Money Gaming business, as an online slot.

“Buffalo gained a huge following with its stunning wildlife graphics and the yell of ‘Buffalo!’ across casino floors. Anaxi did a fantastic job translating a land-based legend to igaming. BetMGM loves bringing big games like Buffalo to our players,” said BetMGM Vice President of Gaming Angus Nisbet.

Anaxi announced a strategic partnership with BetMGM in February 2023 before the slot debuted in Pennsylvania and Michigan in September 2023.

According to the operator, since its debut Buffalo has been a top ten grossing slot at BetMGM as well as receiving an award from Eilers & Krejcik as the Top Performing Omnichannel Slot at the annual EKG Slot Awards.

“BetMGM is proud to bring Buffalo to our Ontario players. It’s already a strong performer in the states and will be a big headliner at BetMGM Ontario, adding to a stellar collection of games,” said BetMGM Chief Revenue Officer Matt Prevost.

The 20-line 5×4 slot joins BetMGM’s range of 2,500 titles, including 250 games produced in-house by Entain.

Strong showing in Ontario for BetMGM

BetMGM, a joint venture between MGM Resorts International and Entain plc, reported net revenues of US$1.96 billion in 2023. It also reported that in Canada it ended the year with a 22% market share in Ontario.

The operator solidified its market presence in North America in 2023, operating in 28 regulated markets and reaching 49% of the adult population. The operator recently expanded into four new markets: Ohio, Massachusetts, Puerto Rico and Kentucky.
