Red Baron Pokies Review

Red Baron
Red Baron

The Red Baron Pokies is a pokies machine from Aristocrat. The theme for this pokies is the famed Red Baron World War I flying ace. This pilot was known far and wide for his legendary piloting skills. The graphics support the theme well with pretty blue skies just right for flying, and the symbols used in this pokie are also nicely theme-oriented.

This is actually a ‘reel power’ pokie, which dispenses with standard win lines and gives you 243 possible winning combinations instead.

Red Baron pokies is a colourful game, though the graphics are relatively simple compared to today’s pokies. You’ll be lining up planes, targets, Richthofen’s famous dog, an airship, and a woman’s profile, too.

The familiar click-click of each reel stopping is in place, as are the retro computer tunes when you get a winning combination. You can gamble after each win by choosing the colour or suit of a playing card.

Red Baron Pokies – The Features

The Features

There are two parts to the bonus feature, which immediately makes Red Baron pokies more interesting than many other Aristocrat titles. First, you must choose from one of 5 missions to shoot down enemy aircraft. The idea is that the more you shoot down, the bigger your multiplier of the win from the spin that got you to the feature. You can lose out if you choose a big number and do not reach your target. The choices are 4 planes for 10x, 8 for 15x, 12 for 25x, 16 for 60x and 20 for 140x. If you shoot down 25 or more (by having them appear on the reels), you’ll get an additional 40 regardless of which option you picked.

During the 15 free spins, you will also accumulate wins like normal. There is one additional feature here: the medal wild multiplies any wins it is part of by 2x, 3x, or 5x. Remember that this symbol will only appear on reel 3.

You can play the Red Baron Pokies for free or with real money at online casinos. You do not have to select the number of lines with reel power games. It is possible to choose how many reels you want to include in the ‘all-ways’ system, which awards wins for any consecutive symbols from left to right regardless of which line they appear on. Choosing 4 reels instead of 5 will reduce the potential winning combinations from 243 to 81.

You can bet from 2c, which gives a spin value 50c for all 5 reels. The max (Aristocrat always let you select this with a handy ‘max’ button) is $100 per spin. There is an autoplay feature too.

The top symbols on Red Baron pokies are the Red Baron himself and his red biplane. 5 of either will get you 1500 coins, with the lady worth 1000 for 5. The remaining unique symbols (airship, dog, and radio) are worth 400, 250, and 200, respectively, for 5 – with the playing cards making up the remaining wins.

There are two other symbols to note at Red Baron Pokies. First, the medal is the wild in this game. This only appears on reel 3 and will substitute for any other symbol. Unusually, this includes the target symbol, which is the scatter. The target only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. All 3 will trigger the mission and free spins round and pay a multiple of the total bet for that particular spin.

The Bonuses To Be Won
