The original Buffalo is a classic, and Buffalo Gold manages to improve on the original with a bonus that offers a ton of additional potential, as well as the occasional wild multiplier in the base game. And, it was popular enough in its own right to spawn sequels of its own.

Lightning Link’s Grand jackpot is a bit of a unicorn, and for a long time actual start to finish bonuses featuring a Grand jackpot weren’t around on YouTube. They are now available, and it helps answer questions like whether seeing balls spinning in every space guarantees a jackpot.
