Red Baron Slots
World War One fighter pilots are not usually the subject of choice for online slots – least of all German ones. Well, the Red Baron breaks the mould, focusing on Manfred Richthofen, reportedly the best airborne ‘ace’ of any nation at a time when people were fighting in biplanes. This slot is mostly the plain and simple fare you might expect from Aristocrat. At the same time there are a couple of interesting additions, in the form of ‘missions’ and the 243-ways ‘reel power’ setup.
The graphics are very blocky and plain, all with retro images of the time such as a wooden radio cabinet and target. These really feel like they were just transplanted from an old mechanical slot. Simple upgrades for the design would make a big difference to this and to many other Aristocrat slots. Other than some music during the intro and special sounds during the missions game, the beeps and clicks are from the same library as the other Aristocrat slots. At least the missions, which gives you points for each plane collected (shot down) gives the Red Baron something different. You will have the potential for a big pay-out, especially with the front view of the biplane sometimes appearing stacked on the reels.
