Take to the Skies with the Red Baron
Red Baron is a pokie with a simple design that’s set on a blue sky with a few clouds scattered about. This is the perfect background for a game based on aerial warfare and it features reels that are a light shade of blue, which generates just enough contrast. The overall theme of the game is quite simple; however, the only thing that’s missing is a great soundtrack, which doesn’t feature as the game is mostly played in silence, with a few generic sounds.
Fans of history will be drawn to this pokie due to what it represents and there aren’t many games that are based on a Polish-born pilot.

Aerial Assault with the Red Baron
Red Baron is a straightforward pokie that displays everything that’s needed to enjoy the game. However, it’s slightly different from other Aristocrat titles as it features a slide-out menu that requires you to select different options such as the number of auto spins you’d like inside a dedicated menu. Older Aristocrat games would usually feature this at the bottom of the grid.
Above the grid, you’ll find your balance, total bet, and win. Clicking on the cog icon in the top-right corner of the screen will open the menu which will provide you with various options and features such as:
- Autoplay Spins
- Size of Your Bet
The symbols that are featured are linked to the general theme of the game with symbols such as Medals, Targets, Red Baron, Airplanes, Women, Zeppelin, Dogs, and Radios. The low-tier symbols are represented by card values that range from A to 9.
Red Baron operates with the Reel Power mechanic which allows you to choose the number of reels that you’ll use during the game. However, we would suggest that you stick to the original number of reels.
Dogfight Bonuses and More Rewards
Red Baron comes with a few special features that are designed to give you an edge over the rest of the game. The most common feature is the wild symbol which is represented by the medal and it will provide you with up to a 5x multiplier when it substitutes another symbol. The wild symbol can substitute any other symbol in the game except the scatters.
The scatter symbols that are featured in this pokie are represented by targets and will only appear on reels 2, 3, and 4. The scatter symbols are then multiplied by the total bet. This isn’t all, as you’ll also be allowed to choose your Mission. With 15 Free Spins, there are five Missions and one Bonus and these are structured as follows:
- Mission 1 – 4 or more Plane wins + 10x Multiplier
- Mission 2– 8 or more Plane wins + 15x Multiplier
- Mission 3– 12 or more Plane wins + 25x Multiplier
- Mission 4– 16 or more Plane wins + 60x Multiplier
- Mission 5– 20 or more Plane wins + 140x Multiplier
- Bonus– 25 or more Plane wins + 40x Multiplier
The Free Spins can be retriggered once and the amounts that are won during missions are multiplied by the initial bet when the bonus had started.
