Don’t be fooled by these old fashioned graphics, the Red Baron mobile slot still has plenty of ammunition to draw you out onto this battlefield.
We’re not going to lie. The symbols and sounds look like they were made somewhere around WWI and, at that, not even that well. The woman could be a woman, or a man with long hair, the Blimp and Fokker planes are clip art cut outs, and as for the dog and radio…
We guess you would find those in households around 1914? Not sure the relevance, but maybe they ran out of ideas.
The one powerful image is that of the Red Baron himself, aka. Manfred von Richthofen. It’s not a friendly face, but it’s genuine, and intense. We suppose ace fighter pilots during that time didn’t have a lot to smile about.
Needless to say this mobile casino game isn’t as pretty as Miss Kitty. But we don’t play Aristocrat slots for the pretty graphics, we play to win.
Whilst this is a 243 ways to win slot, don’t think you can start betting big and large. You can, of course, but this Red Baron slot machine is just as likely to shoot you down, as give you a glorious victory.
5 of a kind wins are not easy to come by, but when they do, they are rewarding enough that you’ll remember why you are playing this game.
Still, as with the other famous 243 ways to win Aristocrat slot Choy Sun Doa, you are really just waiting for the the free spins battle to begin.
You will be disappointed when you enter the free spins the first time. Mostly, because you’ll pick the highest possible planes to capture, in order to win big, and chances are, won’t. We found picking mission 2, 3 or 4 is best. (more on that below)
The thing is, whilst ‘capturing’ planes, ie. getting enough plane symbols to get an instant cash bonus, is part of the appeal, it’s not the be all and end all of this free spins round.
What truly makes a difference is that the wilds now come with multipliers, ranging from 2x to 5x. That’s how you get the truly huge 100 times your bet, or more, wins.
And the great news is that, unlike so many dangerous games like the Lucky88 slot, the free spins come round often enough (100 spins or so) that you get your chance to win this battle again, and again.
You just have to be careful with your budget in order to dance with this ace in the sky, and bring victory to your wallet.

Wilds: The medal is the wild symbol and appears on reel 3 only. However, it shows up often and during the free spins, come with a multiplier of 2x, 3x or 5x.
Scatter and Free Spins: The target symbol is scatter and appears on reel 2, 3 and 4 only. 3 will win you 5x your total bet.
You also trigger 15 free spins, where the wild comes with a hefty multiplier.
But before you begin, you need to choose one of 5 missions. Basically, you collect the 'airplane' symbol everytime it shows up during your free spins round, and win extra cash on top of your free spins wins.
As a bonus, if you collect 25 or more planes you win an additional x40 your bet, on top of the mission win and the free spins wins.
Honestly, it's not easy to be victorious in these missions. At best, you'll win once every 4/5 free spins rounds. A little more if you weren't brave and choose mission 2 more often.
Generally we like 3 or 4, as it's a decent top up, and achievable. But if you want to go all out, by all means, choose mission 5. You'll just have to wait a while to reach that goal.
It's hard to get into a game whose graphics and sounds feel like they've come from another era, even if this is based around World War One.
Still this Red Baron mobile slot has plenty of big wins hiding in the five reels, no more so than in an epic free spins battle where you'll be on the edge of your seat every time a plane, or wild, show on screen.
