The Brook is Where the Buffalo Now Roam
With more than 400 machines on its newly expanded gaming floor, The Brook offers one of the most diverse options of games than any casino in New England.
Among those new gaming machines are Aristocrat Gaming’s series of wildly popular Buffalo titles – such as Buffalo Gold and Buffalo Chief – that have been the most sought-after games in the world for over a decade by both newbies and the most experienced players. Aristocrat has released more than 35 versions of the now iconic Buffalo brand over the last 12 years and that number continues to grow.
It’s difficult to miss the Buffalo games when you walk through the casino floor at The Brook, thanks to their unique and exuberant graphics, Wild West imagery, and one-of-a-kind sound effects, such as the loud Buffalo stampedes that pop up on the screen during game play.
“Game design is an art because of the unique blending of math, bonuses, graphics, and sound needed to create the magic,” explains Jon Hanlin, Aristocrat’s SVP of Commercial Strategy and Business Analytics. “Better than any other game of its time, Buffalo has balanced all of those things together, turning it from a beloved game to a world-class brand.”
“The original game created a foundation to build more iterations with new and innovative features. The brand is so ubiquitous in the gaming industry . . . We firmly believe slot players seek it out in every casino.”
But as fun and entertaining as the graphics are on the Buffalo games, it’s the value and large winning potential that truly draws the most die-hard gamers to the machines. Game-play features on the Buffalo machines include multiplier wilds, no pay lines, free spins bonus rounds and a recurring retrigger feature.
“Buffalo became a phenomenon because of the VIP players that found the value in the unlimited free games bonus with the frequent retrigger,” Hanlin adds. “The free game bonus is what gamblers love, but the art and the sound – BUFFFFALLLOOOO!!! – in the game were the secret ingredients to put it over the top.”
For instance, Buffalo Chief offers an astounding 3,456 ways to win in the base game alone. The Supercoin feature leads to 250 buffalo symbols during Free Games, and a mystery Gigantic Stampede feature with 16,000 ways to win with a guaranteed 5-of-a-kind Buffalo.
Meanwhile, the Buffalo Gold Collection offers unlimited free games with wild multipliers and a Gold Bonus with substitute symbols and additional multipliers.
In addition to hundreds of games to choose from, The Brook, which has donated more $5 million to local charities and organizations since 2019, was also the first casino in New Hampshire to introduce historical racing machines (HHR), which look and operate much like other gaming machines. However, instead of randomizing the outcome, HHRs determine winners based on previously run horse races.
The Brook also offers a range of casino table games, including blackjack, roulette, craps, and a live poker room, as well as Stadium Gaming. The state-of-the-art DraftKings Sportsbook features a 500-seat sports bar and grill with both indoor stadium and outdoor deck viewing environments, four massive cinema screens and more than 200 additional televisions.
