The Bandit and the Baron Online Slot

In The Bandit and the Baron Online Slot, I joined a wily female outlaw on her high-volatility mission to rob a rich baron blind. The 5x3 reel, 25 payline slot by Microgaming and Just For The Win takes place in an Old West town where the reels are encased in an ornate door frame and offer up various forms of legal tender as symbols. The game’s bonus features include respins and wilds and it is possible to enjoy this title across all platforms.

Bonus Features

Respins are this game’s focal point, and most of the bonus features revolve around them.

Expanding wilds

Wherever the Baron wild landed, it expanded into a full-length image of the old man, covering the entire reel and giving me great chances to complete winning combos.

Spreading Wild

When 2 bonus symbols appeared on reels 1, 3, or 5, the reels they were on remained locked in place and I received a respin of the remaining reels. This feature essentially gave me another chance to land enough bonus symbols to trigger the Bandit Bonus.

Bandit Bonus

Landing 3 bonus symbols on reels 1, 3, and 5 activated this streak respin-style feature where I was transported to the interior of a vault that housed a 5x5 grid. The round started by awarding me 3 respins with 13 unlocked positions on the grid and the other 12 locked. I noted that there were only 3 types of symbols that appeared during this feature.

There were Cash symbols valued from 1x to 25x my bet, Key symbols that unlocked a random locked position and Upgrade symbols that multiplied all the cash symbols in a row or reel, or both directions by x2, x3, x5, or x10.

The feature ended when I ran out of respins, but I would have achieved the same result if I had filled all the positions with symbols or hit the winning cap of 25 000x my bet. A shortcut to the bonus round is made possible by the Buy Bonus feature that allowed me to trade 100x my stake for a guaranteed 3 bonus symbols on a single spin.

Conclusion

The Bandit and the Baron slot offered a refreshing gameplay experience with an intriguing thematic premise that unfortunately wasn’t fully realised. It is a little infuriating that a title with such a well-crafted visual theme with two interesting lead characters casts a potentially compelling narrative to the wayside. Fortunately, the gameplay was engaging enough to somewhat compensate for this shortfall.

With the expanding wilds keeping my wins and losses in the base game balanced, I was glad to launch the bandit bonus which was a game within itself and delivered the ideal opportunity to hit the slot’s top potential of $250 000. I hardly noticed the lack of free spins which makes this game a true stand-out for me.
