Baron Samedi

Baron Samedi

You might be launching Yggdrasil’s latest online slot with an air of curiosity; just who, or what, is Baron Samedi? If the name is unfamiliar, let us give you a bit of background. Baron Samedi was – or perhaps, still is – one of the spirits of Haitian Vodou (that’s voodoo, to us). A cigar smoker, a drinker, and a charming womaniser (despite his marriage to fellow spirit Maman Brigitte), Baron Samedi greets souls moments after their death and leads them to the underworld. Legend has it that powerful Samedi is also capable of preventing death. This intriguing character certainly sounds interesting enough to have an online slot themed around him, wouldn’t you agree? Yggdrasil certainly do.

Baron Samedi online casino game machine is a 5 reel, 3 row, 25 pay line affair. It has an aptly mysterious feel to it; the reels are set upon a fortune teller’s table in a dimly lit room, accompanied by Samedi’s burning cigar, a drink on the rocks, a crow’s skull and a burning candle. This atmospheric scene immediately sets the mood, ready for spinning the voodoo reels, collecting feature cards and triggering Free Spins and Voodoo Respins. Get ready for plenty of spooky thrills in this captivating game!

Special Features
