The Bandit and the Baron Slot, Details & Wager Limits

Reels/Paylines: 5 reels + 25 paylines

Stakes Range: 20p to £10 per spin

Max Win: 25,000 x stake per spin

RTP: 96.09%

The Bandit and the Baron slot comes with 5 reels, 5 rows and 25 fixed paylines. 3, 4 or 5 matching symbols across any of the paylines, beginning from reel 1, will give you a winning result.

Available to play from 20p to £10 a spin, it caters to all pockets. Click on the Poker Chip icon to see all 16 available stakes. Above that there is an Autoplay function which allows between 10 and 100 autospins. This isn’t available in the UK though.

When it comes to return rates, The Bandit and the Baron RTP is 96.09% which is minimally above the 96% slots average. Expect a winning spin every 4/5 spins as the hit frequency rate is 23.77%. The volatility/variance is high so most wins will be smaller in nature.

However, with huge risk comes big rewards. The maximum payout is 25,000 x your total stake. This can be won in the Bandit Bonus feature (mode details below). On each spin, a max of 500 x stake can be won.

With a Western theme, The Bandit and the Baron slot is exactly what you’d expect from a Spaghetti Western. Set in a classic Western town, the graphics and animations are superb. You will see the character symbols moving.

On the reels you will see diamonds, clubs, hearts and spades. Then you have silver coins, wads of cash, sacks of gold coins, gold bullions and safes. The safe is the highest value symbol giving you 1, 3 or 20 x stake for 3, 4 or 5 in combination.

There is a wild symbol which pays up to 20 x stake and substitutes for all symbols mentioned above. There is also a Baron wild which appears stacked (to take over the entire reel). Then you have the Bandit Bonus symbol which triggers the Bandit Bonus feature.

The Bandit and the Baron Bonus Features

The Bandit and the Baron has 3 bonus features. They all focus on the Bandit Bonus feature where cash, key and upgrade symbols land. These can reach up to 25,000 x your total stake with spins/respins awarded.

Bandit Bonus feature

the-bandit-and-the-baron-slot-bandit-bonus-feature

The Bandit Bonus feature is triggered by landing 3 full or partial Bandit Bonus symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 simultaneously on a base game spin. With 3 spins awarded, only 12 locked spaces and 13 blank spaces appear on the reels.

On the reels only cash, key and upgrade symbols appear. Every cash symbol landing resets the spin counter to 3. Each key and upgrade symbols landing in an unlocked position also resets to counter to 3. Here’s what each symbol reward you with:

Cash Symbol Stake multiplier value up to 25 x stake
Upgrade Symbol Multiplier up to 10x to all cash symbols vertically, horizontally or both ways
Key Symbol Unlocks a random locked space if landing on a blank space

Basically, the upgrade symbol is what you want as the maximum cash symbol value can reach 25,000 x stake. Key symbols unlock more spaces giving you a higher chance of winning. The feature ends once you run out of spins (or respins).

Bandit Respin feature

If 2 Bandit Bonus symbols land on reels 1, 3 or 5, the Bandit Respin feature is activated. The reel without the Bandit Bonus symbol spins again giving you another chance to trigger the Bandit Bonus feature.

Buy Bandit Bonus feature

You can enter the Bandit Bonus feature with the Buy Bandit Bonus feature. Setting you back 100 x your total stake, 3 Bandit Bonus symbols are guaranteed to land on reels 1, 3 and 5. This option isn’t available to UK players though.

Originality








The Bandit and the Baron slot focuses almost entirely on the Bandit Bonus feature. With respins and cash prizes up for grabs, it’s very similar to Relax Gaming’s Money Train 2 which has a similar theme. The latter does offer 50,000 x stake max wins as opposed to 25,000 x stake.

Overall, The Bandit and the Baron is a respin game which has big potential wins on offer. Money Train 2 and the two slots mentioned below are better in my opinion with even bigger wins available.

If you like respins and big wins, Fire in the Hole by Nolimit City is my preferred choice as it comes with 60,000 x stake max payouts in the Lucky Wagon Spins feature. Another game to try is Dead Man’s Trail (from Relax Gaming) where the Trail Bonus feature has lots of modifiers that can give you 50,000 x stake wins.

Pros
  • 25,000 x stake max wins
  • Excited Bandit Bonus feature
  • Simple gameplay
Cons
  • No free spins
