A $1.8 Million Jackpot Won at The STRAT Playing Buffalo Grand

People love Las Vegas because it is one of the few places on Earth where they can become millionaires overnight. Jackpots and progressive jackpots offer players an opportunity to change their lives forever by spinning slots and playing other popular casino games in one of the most popular US cities.

However, being lucky is an important factor that you need to have on the day you decide to play casino games, and an anonymous person seems to have had luck on their side when they managed to win a total sum of $1,896,000. The jackpot happened at the STRAT Hotel, Casino and SkyPod on Friday, June 7.

The winner decided not to reveal their identity. They won their almost-two-million dollars by playing a game called Buffalo Grand.

Buffalo Grand is an online slot created by one of the most popular slot development companies in the world called Aristocrat Technologies, Inc. Their games are popular all over the world, and some of their slots are present in Las Vegas as well. However, if we were to choose one title that stands out in their offer, it is definitely Buffalo Grand, which is available in hundreds of casino floors all around the world.

Apart from being present everywhere, the game is also very popular, as Buffalo Grand slots are usually occupied by hundreds of players who decided to test their luck and take a shot at winning the huge jackpot. The game made by the Australian developer has been particularly popular in the US, with thousands of players spinning the reels, hoping to get the highest possible prize.

The game is offered on a 42” full-HD curved display which is often called an “arc double” by slot aficionados. It is an award-winning release that is completely touch-screen with top-notch quality and great animated graphics. Furthermore, the slot provides the best full surround sound and comes with a comfortable chair.

The reel structure of this slot is somewhat strange, but it seems that players love it. Although it has five reels, not all of them have the same number of rows. In fact, the first and the last reel have four rows each, while the middle three reels have five rows each.

Furthermore, the game comes with a set of special features, some of them being re-triggering free spins, special symbols, and other bonus games. It also has five levels of progressive jackpots, meaning that players can also win minor jackpots if they are lucky. Some of the symbols on the reels are buffalo, deer, wolves, lions, eagles, and more. Furthermore, the slot features a set of low-paying symbols which are 9, 10, Queen, King, and Ace.

One of the symbols that can really enhance your spinning experience is the Wild Buffalo, which is a huge 3D animated symbol that randomly grants multipliers of 2x or 3x. Moreover, if you are lucky enough to land enough scatter symbols on the reels, you will trigger the bonus feature, which will grant you 8, 15 or 20 free spins, depending on the number of scatters. The free spins round can be retriggered.

Finally, if you land three wheel bonus triggers, you will be presented with a wheel which will either award you free spins, or an opportunity to win one of the progressive jackpots that are in the game. If you are lucky enough, you might even win some of the minor jackpots.

However, it takes a lot of luck to win the biggest one like our lucky winner from The STRAT.
