Baron Samedi Slot A feature-packed slot from Yggdrasil with unique gameplay Use tarot cards to wins extra Wilds, multipliers and more A dark theme …
Baron Samedi slot is a new game from Yggdrasil which once again takes things to the next level in terms of design and unique gameplay. Again and again they push the limits, bringing new features to offer an entertaining gaming experience. This time they’ve gone with another fairly dark theme like they often do and have drawn inspiration from voodoo dolls and Baron Samedi himself.
The overall appearance of the slot is pretty hectic and not the best I’ve seen from Yggdrasil. Don’t get me wrong, I love all the small details and it suits the theme very well, I just think it’s a bit cluttered. You have a standard 5×3 grid with 25 paylines and up top a place for your cards (more on this later). Your job is to spin the reels to try and get a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols. These are listed as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
Baron Samedi slot also has a Wild card of course, which substitutes for all of the aforementioned symbols in a winning combination.
Voodoo Respin Feature. This is triggered by landing 2 Free Spins symbols anywhere on the screen. You’ll be given a respin and will be dealt 3 Feature cards for every respin awarded. If you manage to get another Free Spins symbol from this feature you’ll trigger the Free Spins Bonus. During the respin, a Mystery symbol can appear which will turn into any random symbol at the end of each spin.
Free Spins Bonus. This is activated with 3 Free Spins symbols either during the base game or the Voodoo Respins Feature. 3 of the symbols will give you 7 free spins along with 50 coins, 4 will offer you 12 free spins with 275 coins and finally, 5 symbols will give you 15 free spins and a generous 25,000 coins. Furthermore, on every free spins you also receive 3 Feature cards. The Mystery symbol is also available at the end of each free spin.
Feature Cards. This is the most interesting feature in the game and really sets it apart. As you might have guessed from the theme this is all about voodoo and dark magic so naturally, tarot cards are part of the game. This will be given throughout the game and a complete collection will offer you 3 free spins with that card locked into the 1st position. You can view your collection by tapping the right deck. The first time you collect a card it will be unlocked and added to your collection with a strength indicated in Roman numerals for you. The lowest strength is 1 and the highest is 4 making it less likely to come about. I won’t explain what each card does here as there are a whopping 36 of them but you can win features such as Wild reels, more free spins and lots more!
Baron Samedi slot is another fun and feature-packed slot from Yggdrasil that once again offers something completely new and wild. The theme this time is quite a dark one like quite a few of their slots recently including Wolf Hunters slot, but the theme here is of course slightly different. The main appeal of this slot is the Feature Cards aspect of it. This takes inspiration from tarot cards and allows you to win special features like extra Wilds and multipliers depending on the card and its strength. You can tell a lot of thought has gone into this as it’s very complex, but we’ve come to expect this from Yggdrasil who continue to raise the bar in the gaming world. The other bonuses are pretty good also but more familiar, with respins and free spins available. In short, Baron Samedi slot has an excellent, original theme with great gameplay that will take a bit of time to understand but is definitely worth it.
