Important Symbols and Combinations
The medal is the wild symbol. It appears only on reel 3 and this may disappoint some players. But it also substitutes for the scatter symbol and multiplies payouts in the free spins. The medal does not award any line payouts. The target is the scatter symbol and triggers the free spins. The largest line payouts are awarded by the Red Baron.
Red Baron has an unusual configuration. The basic is an all pays format with five reels and three rows, but you can select the number of reels. So with five reels you have 243, ways to win, with four reels you have 81 ways to win and so on. Even when you select less than five reels the middle symbol on all reels are active.
The line bet varies from 0.02 to 4.00. The multiplier for the total bet depends on the number of reels selected. For five reels you multiply the line bet by 25 to get the total bet. As the number of reels is decreased the multiplier lowers to 20, 10, 5 and 1. Make sure you read the rules carefully and may be have a few spins in the free play mode to get the feel of the game before staking your money.
There is no regular bonus game in Red Baron, but an explosive free spins round makes up for its absence. However there is the usual optional gamble game. You can try to double your win by guessing the color of the next card. Or you can try to quadruple your win by guessing the suit of the next card. There is a risk attached, because if you guess wrong then you lose your payout.
The free spins feature is triggered when the target symbol appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 at the same time. You are awarded 15 free spins. The wild symbol will randomly multiply payouts by 2x, 3x or 5x. Before the free spins start you have to choose from five missions. In each mission you have to target the number of planes you will hit. If you succeed then your total bet will be multiplied by the specified multiplier. A target of 4 planes gives you 10x and a target of 20 planes gives you 140x. The free spins can be retriggered without the mission.
Top and Secondary Prizes
The top line payout is awarded by five Red Baron and plane symbols. It is 1500 coins per coin wagered. Kate awards a maximum line payout of 1000 coins.
