Inspired by the popular 3 reel slot of the same name, Bar Bar Black Sheep invites players to visit the countryside, where cheeky sheep roam the reels for big wins. The game offers players a 5x3 reel setup with 15 fixed paylines, wilds and scatters. Released on desktop, tablet and smartphone in April 2016, the revamped version of the classic Microgaming slot is definitely more appealing than the original.
The visuals and extra features have been seriously enhanced when compared to its predecessor, meaning that casino gamers are now offered additional winning opportunities. Each spin is enhanced both visually and aurally: a bright blue sky in the base game changes into a golden sunset during the Free Spins, while authentic country sounds of banjo, harmonicas and fiddles play to celebrate each winning spin.
Play Bar Bar Black Sheep
The first thing you’ll notice when you play Bar Bar Black Sheep is the simple, friendly graphics of cute, woolly sheep in a farmyard environment. The theme is carried onto the reels, where black sheep and stuffed bags of wool spin alongside familiar fruit symbols to try and complete winning combinations. Look out for matching Bar symbols, but also watermelons, corn on the cob, orange and eggplant.
How to Play
Gameplay in Bar Bar Black Sheep is fairly straightforward. Maximum 15 paylines are fixed, meaning that each bet will set you back at least 15 coins.
Coin value ranges from $0.01 to $0.50, whereas players are given the opportunity to stake up to 20 coins per line or 300 credits in total.
Players can hit the ‘spin’ button for a minimum bet of 0.15 coins, and spin the reels to try and win the base game jackpot of 95,000 coins. The paytable is also easily accessible, where payouts for 3, 4 or 5-of-a-kind wins (for example) are displayed.
Strategy & Tips
One of the game’s biggest attractions is the opportunity to win 999x your bet in the Bar Bar Black Sheep Bonus. The feature can be activated in both the base game and Free Spins, and is awarded when two bar symbols and one sheep symbol appear in a straight lie across the reels.
Another draw card is the Free Spins feature, which awards 10, 15 or 20 Free Spins with a 3 multiplier each time three, four or five Scatters appear anywhere.
The feature is triggered when 3 or more scatters (Bar Bar Black Sheep logo) land on the reels. Free Spins can be retriggered for a chance to win the jackpot of up to 140,000 coins.
Bar Bar Black Sheep version 2.0 is also available on smartphone and tablet, meaning you can enjoy the new video slot any time, any place, and see for yourself whether Microgaming did a good job.
An entertaining gaming experience could be on the cards even if this is not one of the best mobile games we have reviewed, but the visuals are decent enough and everything runs smoothly on your cell phones and tablets.
