Breaking Down the Buffalo Family

While many machines come and go like passing trends, for over a decade Aristocrat’s Buffalo slots have proven to be tried and true throughout the years. And it’s easy to understand why, with roughly 1,024 ways to win, these exciting, fast-paced games have us completely captivated as soon as we hear the call, “Buffalllooo!”

2008

Buffalo– Introduced in the United States in 2008 as a pioneer of video reels.
Buffalo Deluxe – Following shortly after, adding three watering options that alter free spins and multipliers

2013

Buffalo Stampede- The screen tower is doubled from the original game, and true to its name, stampeding buffalo make their way through the lofty screen.
Buffalo Grand – The first Buffalo machine to feature progressive jackpots, and add a gentle curve to that towering screen.
Buffalo Moon – Similar to Buffalo Grand, but setting the scene at night, oh, and adding up to 30X multipliers.
Buffalo Gold – Golden Buffalo has been added on the reels of the elongated screen.

2018

Buffalo Max – The new machine steps on the scene including increased free spins, additional wild cards, and higher multipliers.
Buffalo Diamond – A celebration of the popular slot series’ domination of the popularity charts for an entire decade. Buffalo Diamond features a novel 4-5-6-5-4 symbol layout for its five reels that roughly approximates the shape of a diamond.

Bonus Buffalo: Buffalo Thundering Sevens, a throwback to the three-reel electromechanical slot days.

 

Feeling inspired? Try your luck and find your favorite Buffalo Machine inside Buffalo Xing, with all of your favorite Buffalo machines corralled together, located directly beside the Sports Book.

Meet Chef Jaimee Pepe of Twin Creeks Steakhouse

Being in the kitchen with mom and grandma brought the love of cooking to life for Chef Jaimee Pepe.

Originally from New Jersey, Pepe took to Las Vegas to pursue culinary education before heading to New York City to work as a sous chef at the Standard Hotel for four years. Pepe then returned to Las Vegas and became the executive sous chef at Giada’s on the Las Vegas Strip, helping to open Giada De Laurentiis’ chic restaurant in The Cromwell Hotel with Caesars Entertainment, before becoming the first female executive room chef at Twin Creeks Steakhouse at Silverton Casino.

Pepe goes on to say she, “Wouldn’t trade the hectic in your face environment for the world” during her time in New York.

“Out here, you’re more on a personal level with everybody, which is really cool. Vegas is a small town. Once you’re in it, you know everybody,” she continues.

The small town, everybody knows everybody, is exactly the feeling that is captured at Twin Creeks Steakhouse, which makes it the locals’ favorite that it is today.

Hear more about Chef Jaimee Pepe and the behind the scenes details that separate Twin Creeks Steakhouse from other Las Vegas steakhouses In this special bonus episode of Las Vegas Weekly’s Second Helping podcast.

 

Vegas Family Vacation

For those that aren’t privy to the many different options the Las Vegas valley has to offer, putting the words “Vegas” and “Family” together can sound like a complete oxymoron. Forget what you’ve heard about Vegas and take back your family vacation. Enjoy a little something for everyone, yes including you, on your next family vacation to Las Vegas.

There’s no denying both children and children at heart can enjoy spending time with the Silverton Mermaids. Whether you’re capturing a show as they perform tricks and interact with the crowd, or opt for a personal encounter and enjoy Meals with a Mermaid, where you can help them look for treasure, enjoy a delicious meal, and make unforgettable memories. It may even inspire the children to sign up for Mermaid School. Talk about a dream job!

There’s no excuse not to carve out a date night just for the two of you during your trip. Make your reservations now for Twin Creeks Steakhouse and thank us later. Enjoy unrivaled happy hour specials, steak, and seafood prepared to perfection, as well as a plant-based menu. Be sure not to skip out on dessert.

Head to the great outdoors, without ever stepping outside. Get lost inside Bass Pro Shops, complete with a waterfall and tanks bubbling with fish, and even a few ducks, shoot your shot at the archery range or shooting gallery, or simply take in everything they have to offer for your next adventure.

Pack a water bottle and your comfiest shoes and head just a few miles west to enjoy the beauty that is Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. Enjoy hikes for all levels or simply pack a picnic, take in the breathtaking desert scenery, and maybe catch sight of a burro or two. You’d never believe this wonder is hidden just beyond the flashy lights of the Las Vegas Strip.

There’s just so much that the valley has to offer for the entire family, all while being exclusively “Vegas”. What are you most excited to do on your next Vegas vacation?
