The Bandit and the Baron Bitcoin Slot Review
Just For The Win advises players to shoot first and ask questions later in its wild west themed, The Bandit and the Baron. With 25,000x up for grabs, this 5×3 (reels x rows) & 25 paylines slot is not for yellow bellies, so you better come armed! However, you’re not alone with expanding wilds, the Bandit Bonus and more as your allies.
The Bitcoin slot is set in an old west town that’s probably seen better days. What could be better than a vault packed with gold bricks as the top-paying symbol of 20x bet? It’s promptly followed by gold bricks, a bag of gold coins, stacks of money and silver coins. Four (4) card suit symbols are the lowest paying part of the paytable. The phenomenal artwork is complemented by thematic sound effects that immerse you in the spirit of the old frontier.
The RTP of The Bandit and the Baron, depending on your casino, is as high as 96.09%. Try changing your bet size in this high volatility slot from 0.20 to as much as 20. For entirely different themes, check out Neptune’s Riches: Ocean of Wild and Book of King Arthur from JFTW.
Just For The Win has released slots slowly but steadily, and The Bandit and the Baron is their first wild west theme. And like any good slot, this one has a wild played by the grey-bearded Baron. He is an exciting wild type because he expands when landing on a reel during the main game. You’ll also find a second wild that can form its own winning combination or substitute for a regular paying symbol.
While we’re unsure if the Bandit is meant to be an antihero, she’s fully equipped as the upgrade symbol. When she partially/fully lands on the playing area (reels 1, 3 and 5), she triggers the Bandit Bonus feature with three initial spins. Instead of regular symbols, only blank spaces and ‘locked spaces’ appear on the reels that may contain one of 3 symbols:
- The cash symbol resets this spin counter to three and remains sticky until the end of the feature. Each one contains a random prize of 1x, 2x, 3x, 5x, 8x, 10x or 25x.
- The key symbol also resets the spin counter to three while unlocking a random locked space to activate the symbol, if any, inside.
- The upgrade symbol contains random multipliers of 2x, 3x, 5x or 10x applied to adjacent cash symbols vertically, horizontally or both ways.
If you narrowly miss triggering the Bandit Bonus feature by being short a symbol, the Bandit Respin feature is a second chance. The two Bandit Bonus symbols are frozen in place, and the third reel spins for a chance to land the elusive third one.
The Bandit Bonus feature is where you want to be if you’re after bigger payouts. However, it can take time to trigger, which is where the Buy Bandit Bonus feature comes into play. For a price of 100x your bet, you get instant entry into the bonus.
The Bandit and the Baron Bitcoin slot is designed in HTLM5 for iOS and Android devices and your Windows desktop.
