I’ve played Baron Samedi for an entire day so I guess I can give an honest opinion about the game. It’s one of those games that pull you in and you keep playing, mostly because of the progressive feature of card collecting. You won’t want to lose your collected cards so you’ll keep spinning the reels. Let’s go through the details of this slot game and see if you should play it or not.
Main game and paytable
The game is played on a standard 5×3 board with 25 fixed paylines, and it’s interesting that the minimum bet is only $0.10, or $0.004 per payline. The paytable has four low-win and four high-win symbols, plus a Wild symbol and a Scatter, so things are very simple. The four card symbols pay from 20 to 35 coins for five-of-a-kind, so with these you can only hope that you’ll get your stake back and then perhaps get a few coins on top. The high-win symbols aren’t too generous either as the best prize is 120 coins, or 4.8x your total bet, and the purpose of this paytable is just to give you enough money back so you can wait for the special features.
Free Spin Scatters trigger the free spins game. If you land only two Free Spin Scatters, the Voodoo Re-Spin will be triggered and you’ll get a re-spin with 3 Feature Cards dealt, which means you’ll likely get a decent win. If you land at least three Scatters you’ll trigger the free spins game, and will get 7 free spins, which will increase to 12 free spins plus 375 coins if you landed four Scatters. The prize for five Scatters is very tempting, as not only you’ll get 15 free spins but will also be given 25,000 coins, which is 1000x your bet! On every free spin, 3 Feature Cards are dealt.
There are a total of 36 Feature Cards, and all of them can be collected. The number on the card displays how many more cards of that kind you need to collect in order to get 3 free spins with that card locked. There are various cards, such as the x10 win multiplier, converting all high-win symbols into Wilds, random Wilds added to the reels etc. The two ways to collect cards are through the Voodoo Re-Spin feature and through the free spins feature.
Baron Samedi Slots RTP
Theoretical return to player (RTP) of Baron Samedi is 97.00%, which means this game is an excellent choice. This is definitely a game that demands longer playing sessions, as you need to collect 50 of the same card in order to get 3 free spins with that card active, which means you’ll only get the most of this game if you play it for a very long time. Perhaps the cards are even luring you to play longer than you should, but it’s up to each player to decide what’s best for him and when should he end the session. In any case, you’ll only begin to enjoy this game in its entirety once you start getting those 3 free spins from collected cards.
Baron Samedi is an innovative game that brings the collectible cards to the table, which is something that hasn’t been seen before in slots, so every player should definitely play this game to see how does it play like. This is a quality slot game with a great payout and good graphics, and it’s interesting enough to have you playing for a very long time. It’s one of those games you shouldn’t miss.
