How to Play

You might be wondering about Yggdrasil’s latest UK 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 (or voodoo).

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 casino game themed around him, wouldn’t you agree? Yggdrasil certainly do, hence the introduction of Baron Samedi slot game. Baron Samedi casino slot game 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 the captivating Baron Samedi slot game!

Baron Samedi Slot Special Features

Baron Samedi slot is the highest value symbol on the reels, closely followed by his wife Maman Brigitte. The two voodoo dolls in green and orange are also high-value symbols, whilst the colourful gems make up the lower-paying icons. There is an animal skull wild symbol, which substitutes all regular symbols. There is also a Free Spins scatter symbol featuring a skull on some playing cards. As the game begins, players are dealt a selection of feature playing cards.
