Baron Samedi online slot is a creepy 3x5 reel, 25 payline Haitian Voodoo-themed slot developed by Yggdasil gaming. It centres around a skeletal mischief-maker, Baron Samedi – a “loa of the dead”, or man that cannot die. In the game you join Baron and his wife Maman Brigitte to collect voodoo cards that represent additional features. There are 36 cards to collect and each of them will come in handy once you trigger the Free Spins feature or the Voodoo Respins feature. Win-boosters include loads of multipliers, transforming symbols, random Wilds, extra Wilds, Wild reels, extra free spins and much, much more.

Game Symbols

  • The reels spin on a wood and metal tray accessorised with bones, alcohol, cigars, candles and dice; the row above the reels contains cards which we’ll explain more about below as they become important during the main feature.
  • High value symbols are represented by the Baron, his wife Maman Brigitte, and two voodoo dolls. (Baron Samedi pays 120 coins for five of a kind, while Maman Brigitte will get you 115 coins for the maximum combination.)
  • Gems of red, green, blue and purple make up the lower values.
  • The animal skull is wild and replaces all other symbols except the skull bonus symbol to help make winning combinations.
  • There is a Free Spin symbol only appears in the base game (worth 1000x your stake if you land all 5) and a mystery symbol that only appears in the free spins round
  • To land a win, you need at least 3 matching symbols on an active payline.
  • If you land five Scatters on the reels, you will trigger freebies and get 25,000 coins as a reward.

Bonus Features

Card Collection

The stack of cards above the reels on the right is your collection earned during the Voodoo Respins and Free Spins rounds. There are 4 levels of cards and they all award variations of the following:

  • Stacked symbols on the reels.
  • Adds up to 9 mystery symbols to the reels, which then transform into matching symbols.
  • Adds up to 4 mystery reels to the existing reels, which then transform into matching symbols.
  • Applies a multiplier of up to 10x to any wins on one spin.
  • Upgrades low symbols to higher value symbols and high value symbols to wilds
  • Adds up to 8 wild symbols to the reels.
  • Adds up to 5 wilds in the best positions.
  • Turns up to 3 reels wild.
  • Guarantees a five-of-a-kind win.

Note: You will begin the game with a selection of cards to get you started and completing collections of cards will award extra spins in the main feature.

Voodoo Respins

When you land 2 skull bonus symbols anywhere in view, you will receive one free re-spin. You will then be dealt 3 cards from the top left pack, and the features they reveal will apply to this round. The cards are then added to your collection as mentioned earlier.

Free Spins

3, 4 or 5 skulls showing up anywhere on the reels awards you 7, 12, or 15 free spins respectively. During each free spin you will receive 3 more cards with their associated features, which will then be added to your collection.

Note: If a card collection is completed, 3 additional spins are awarded, with that card locked in the first card position above the reels.

Our Verdict

Despite its seemingly complex and unconventional nature, the Baron Samedi slot is well really crafted and will keep you engaged and entertained for hours. There is so much to explore with the collectable features and its corresponding benefits. The star attraction however, is the free spins game with a 1200x your stake on the line, should you trigger the 10x multiplier plus a screen full of wilds and / or Baron Samedi symbols.
