Special Features and Bonuses

There are a handful of perks and features that are available on the Baron:

  • Free Spins Feature: land 3 Free Spins symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 and trigger the Free Spins rounds. In these bonus rounds, you’ll receive a 2x and 5x multipliers until you land a Skulls & Crossbones symbol, which puts your Free Spins Feature to a halt.
  • Dog Fight Bonus Feature: enter the fray with the Baron when you land 3 Bonus symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5. Aim to shoot down 8 planes, avoiding the Skull & Crossbones to make it through the round with bonus cash or multipliers. The Dog Fight can last 5 rounds and if you’re lucky enough to make it through the last, you’ll have multiplied your wager 1000x over!
  • Biplane Bonus Feature: land the Red Biplane on reel 5 and you’ll trigger the bountiful Biplane Bonus… the ‘10’ symbols turn to Wild and all paylines are worth double.

Graphics and Sounds

Watch aviation crafts of the early 20th century fly by as you spin the wheel on this timeless slot. There are fun animations throughout the game but they really shine when you hit the Dog Fight Bonus where you’ll soar up into the clouds and fly among the planes. In the background, listen to the cheerful, jovial piano music of the early 1900s and enjoy the sweet sound of a ‘cha-ching’ everytime you land a win.
