Play The Bandit and the Baron at The Hippodrome Online Casino
The Bandit and the Baron is a Wild West themed slot game notable for its two eponymous protagonists. The “cowboys and Indians” era of American history has long served as inspiration for popular entertainment, from movies to games, and The Bandit and the Baron is every bit as explosive as you would expect from a slot based on gunslingers and gold-diggers.
Created by renowned gaming developers Just For The Win, The Bandit and the Baron slot offers five reels, five rows and 25 ways to win, in addition to several bonus features including wilds, respins and a bonus round.
While many famous Wild West outlaws like Billy the Kid and Jesse James skipped from ranch to ranch in a bid to bootleg, rustle and bank-rob their way to loot, you’ll be focused on working with the Bandit and the Baron to unlock golden bonus rounds and scoop cash winnings in one small town – that just ain’t big enough for the two of them.

The Bandit and the Baron Special Features
As well as offering an intriguing theme with two archetypal wild west characters, The Bandit and the Baron serves up two key special features to enhance your gaming experience.
In the world of slot games, “wilds” are symbols that can substitute for other symbols in order to increase the probability of creating a winning combination. The wilds in The Bandit and the Baron can substitute for all other symbols – and expand to fill a whole reel. If the wilds combine to form a winning combination by themselves, they take on the value of the highest paying symbol.
Scatter symbols give slot players the chance to trigger a bonus round, in this case, the “Bandit Bonus.” The Bandit Respins feature functions to give you an extra opportunity to enter the Bandit Bonus round, if you don’t quite land the three scatter symbols necessary.
The Bandit Respin kicks in when two Bandit Bonus scatters land on a given spin. The reels are frozen in place, with just one re-spinning, with the chance of landing that elusive third scatter and entering the Bandit Bonus round.
The Bandit and the Baron Winning Symbols
The Bandit and the Baron contains eleven symbols that can combine to result in wins. The lower value symbols are generic card symbols including a diamond, clover, heart and spade which offer up to 1.5x your stake. Mid-tier symbols include silver coins, bank notes and gold coins, which can earn up to 5x your stake. Higher tier symbols include Gold bars, which can win 10x your stake, a safe stuffed with gold bars that can win x20 your stake and the wild symbol, which can also offer 20x your stake.
The remaining symbol is the scatter, depicted as the bandit.
The Barron and the Bandit Bonus Rounds
The Bandit and The Baron offers a bonus round known as the “Bandit bonus.” In this round, you are originally granted 3 free spins which can be reset, granting a theoretically infinite number of free spins. The conditions in which the free spins counter can be reset are described below.
Can You Get Free Spins in The Bandit and the Baron?
Free Spins in the Bandit and the Baron can be earned by entering the Bandit Bonus round. This is triggered when three of the scatter symbols land on reels 1,3 or 5, or when two land and a third scatter falls in the Bandit Respins.
The Bandit Bonus is set in a bank vault, and begins with three free spins. These free spins can be retriggered by landing any symbol that isn’t a blank, and can earn you winnings from 1x-25x your stake. In addition to this, there are two modifiers within the bandit bonus round.
The Key modifier unlocks one of the several locked reels, increasing the chances of a win. The upgrade modifier applies a bonus up of up to 10x to increase your winnings.
How Much Can You Win Playing The Bandit and the Baron?
The Bandit and the Baron offers a maximum payout of 25,000x your stake. This can be achieved by unlocking the bonus round and landing the maximum value combinations during free spins, paired with the two modifier symbols.
