Red Baron Online Slots
Manfred Albrecht Freiherr Von Richthoven, better known as the Red Baron, was an outstanding German fighter pilot, having formally been credited with 80 victories in combat during the First World War. Von Richthoven governed the skies from a red biplane, hence the name the Red Baron, and had earned the status of national hero by the time the war drew near to an end. He was finally killed in 1918, leaving behind a legacy that has endured well into the following century.
Red Baron is an online video slot featuring 5 reels, 243 paylines and a highly interactive bonus round.
Red Baron Symbols
Red Baron symbols include zeppelin airships, transmitter radios, a dog (most probably representative of the dogfights), a beautiful girl, a red bi-plane, and the Red Baron himself. Standard playing cards also feature as reel symbols. The wild symbol is a medal of merit, and the scatter is represented by a target.
The wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols, with the exception of the scatter symbol. The wild only appears on the third reel, and the scatter symbol appears on reels 2, 3 and 4.
The free spins bonus round is activated by landing 3 or more of the target scatter symbols anywhere on the reels.
Red Baron Free Spins Bonus Round
It’s obvious that a lot of creative thought went into the creation of the bonus round in keeping with the war theme, as it presents in the style of a mission.
15 Free Spins are initially awarded during the bonus round, and the player must choose from a selection of missions to be played when making use of the free spins. Mission options are:
Mission 1: a combination of 4 red biplanes awarding a 10X multiplier
Mission 2: a combination of 8 red biplanes awarding a 15X multiplier
Mission 3: a combination of 12 red biplanes awarding a 25X multiplier
Mission 4: a combination of 16 red biplanes awarding an enormously generous 60X multiplier
Mission 5: a combination of 20 red biplanes awarding a top paying 140X multiplier
The aim is to predict the correct number of planes that will land on the reels. A bonus multiplier of X40 is applied if a combination of 25 biplanes appear on the reels during the free spins round, regardless of whether the player’s prediction was spot-on, or not.
Optional Gamble Feature
Red Baron includes an optional gamble feature that may be activated by the player at any time during the game. The colour or suit of a card lying face-down on the screen must be guessed. If supposed correctly, all winnings will be doubled for guessing the correct colour, and multiplied by 4 for predicting the correct suit.
Red Baron Graphics and Game Interface
Red Baron presents with 5 reels, floating against the backdrop of partly cloudy bright blue skies. The symbols are vividly coloured and displays brilliantly against the contrast of the blue background. The graphics-rich feel of the slot lends an authenticity to the general theme.
The interface is user-friendly and pre-play player registration is generally not required.
