The Bandit and the Baron online slot machine is a brand new American West/Cowboys-themed slot that recently arrived at Casino.com. It was developed by Just for the Win Studios, and it’s brought to you by Microgaming. This fun new game is available on desktop and mobile, and it can be launched instantly in your web browser without the need to download and software onto your computer.
Low rollers can play from as little as R4.00 ($/€/£0.20) per spin, and high rollers can spend up to R200.00 ($/€/£10.00) per spin, and if you live in South Africa, you can access the game in the free play demo mode too. The top coin prize up for grabs on any lucky spin is worth up to 25,000x times your stake, and the main bonus feature is the Bandits Bonus. To gain entry to the feature – a Streak Respins feature, you need to land at least 3 Bandit Bonus Symbols on the same spin.
These special symbols can only ever land on reels 1, 3, and 5, and when the feature triggers, you will get taken away from the reels to a second screen, where the action is played out in a bank vault. At the start of the feature, more than half of the symbol positions appear locked, and you can unlock them to reveal prizes by landing the Key Symbols.
The only other two symbols that can land during the feature are Cash Symbols and Upgrade Symbols. Each Cash Symbol is worth anywhere from 1x to 25x times your stake, and the Upgrade Symbols are multipliers that can boost the value of these cash prizes by 2X, 3X, 5X, or 10X. You can buy directly into the main bonus at the start of any spin during normal play, but this will set you back an extra 100x times your stake each time you buy in early.
The other feature in this game will only ever kick into action when just 2 Bandit Bonus Symbols land. Once triggered, the reels with the two Bonus Symbols will lock in place, and the remaining reel without the Bonus Symbol will respin once, for free, to give you an extra chance at landing that third Bonus Symbol to trigger the main bonus feature.
The game also comes with regular Wild Symbols that measure 1X1. Whenever these symbols land, they will turn into Expanding Bandit Wild Symbols, and they will expand in both directions to cover that entire reel from top to bottom. The new Bandit and the Baron slot is one of the best new online slots to play in January 2022, so don’t forget to check it out when you next play at Casino.com, especially if you’re a fan of Western-themed slots or online slots from Just for the Win Studios and Microgaming.
