Red Baron Slots

Red-BaronRed Baron is the title of this Aristocrat slot machine, which is themed around one of the most famous pilots of World War I. Red Baron was obviously his nickname, the real name being Manfred von Richthofen. With 80 victories in air combat credited to his name, he is considered one of the best pilots of World War I. He was finally killed in action in 1918. There are actually a few other slot machines dedicated to him, and he seems to be quite popular among slot developers.

The game lets you select between 1 and 5 reels to be fully active, with up to 243 ways to win being used on them. You will win free spins with multipliers and Mission features, plus you will get scatters and wilds. Up to 1,500x multipliers, with payouts of $6,000 can be awarded.

Features of Red Baron

The features seem to be a lot of fun, with the wild symbol applying multipliers and with scatter symbols triggering a Mission feature, where you get free spins and you collect planes and get prizes from them.

Ways to win are used in Red Baron, the game having them instead of paylines. 243 ways to win are possible, the reason being the way the game forms combinations, by taking symbols from adjacent reels.

The Medal symbol is the wild in this case, the symbol which you can count on to get new wins from combinations which wouldn’t have been formed without it. You only get the Medal wild on the 3rd reel, but on the other hand it can even substitute for a scatter symbol, something which you don’t get in other slots.


The Target is the other big symbol, the scatter which shows up on reels 2, 3 and 4. Get it on all three reels in the same round, in any random position, and you will be rewarded with a payout of 5x the wager and with free games.

Free Games Feature

The slot’s free spins are offered whenever you have all three scatter symbols, and the wild symbol from the 3rd reel can be of help with that part. You are given 15 free spins, during which the wild symbol applies a multiplier of 5x, 3x or 2x whenever it helps form a combo.


The free spins also have a Mission feature, where you pick the kind of mission you want and if you meet its requirements you get certain prizes. The missions ask of you to collect between 4 and 20+ planes, and they promise you payouts of 10x to 140x. If you don’t collect the planes from that mission, you don’t get paid, so you might want to consider choosing a mission with a smaller requirement.

Betting options and jackpots

You don’t get to choose how many ways to win are available directly, but you do select between 1 and 5 reels to be fully active, and this will give you 3 to 243 ways to win. 25 lines are used for betting and line bets go from $0.02 to $4. You can spend up to $100 for one spin this way.

The regular symbols will bring you payouts of up to 1,500 coins, meaning a maximum of $6,000.

Design and symbols

The clear blue sky serves as the game’s background image, showing you what Red Baron would’ve seen in one of his missions. The symbols do have the usual playing cards, but they also include themed symbols, with images of airplanes, girls, zeppelins, pilots and so on. The quality of the design is not very impressive, the themed symbols being the best part here.
