The Beau Rivage Resort & Casino has partnered with Aristocrat Gaming to come up with the Gulf Coast’s first “Buffalo Zone”.

This partnership ensures that the MGM property will dedicate 1,500 square feet of floor space to Aristocrat’s Buffalo-themed slot titles.

Said Beau Rivage President and COO Brandon Dardeau:

“Beau Rivage is the first Gulf Coast casino to partner with Aristocrat Gaming to bring the ‘Buffalo Zone’ to the region. Buffalo games are extremely popular among our players and having the opportunity to create a special gaming section allows us to further enhance our guests’ gaming experience.”

50 Bison-Themed Titles

The Buffalo Zone features 50 Bison-themed titles including Buffalo Chief, Buffalo Max, Buffalo Gold, Buffalo Link, Buffalo Grand, and Buffalo Gold Revolution. These games are in addition to the existing 47 other Buffalo-themed games locate throughout the casino.

Beau Rivage Resort & Casino has a total gaming space of 85,000 square feet and has a 1,740 room hotel. It has 10 restaurants, a nightlife area, and a BetMGM Book Bar & Grill. The casino also has a 1,500 seat theater for live entertainment, and a shopping promenade that has a Black Cover Lounge and Topgolf Swing Suite.

Not the First in the State

While the Beau Rivage is the first casino in Mississippi’s Gulf Coast to have a special space for Bison-themed games, it isn’t the first in the nation and not even the first in the state.

In January 2021, Boomtown Casino Hotel launched the first Buffalo Zone in North Nevada. Last June, it was the Gold Strike Casino Resort in Tunica that introduced the first Buffalo Zone in Mississippi. Gold Strike’s Buffalo Zone is nearly twice as large as that of Beau Rivage at 2,800 square feet.
