Bar Bar Black Sheep Slot Review
Microgaming’s masterminds seem to love nursery rhymes and this 5-reel slot is another great example of how they reinterpret popular rhymes, giving them a modern makeover. This is a perfect game for low-rollers since the minimum bet is as little as $0.15. Though not many bonuses, the slot has a unique random multiplier booster that would soar up your winnings by an enormous x999! ‘Baa, baa, black sheep, Have you any wool?’ Yes, she has lots of bags full. And they can be all yours if Lady Luck is resting on your shoulder.
Bar Bar Black Sheep is a relatively recent version of the popular same-name slot featuring 3 reels, and it will win the hearts of players who are keen on Microgaming’s slots. The action in the slot takes place on a farmyard, and the backdrop picture shows an idyllic landscape with sheep loitering around, windmills and small farming buildings. The slot is equipped with 15 fixed lines and the only betting options configurable by the gambler are the number of coins per line (20 max) and a coin denomination ($0.01 to $0.50), so the maximum wager per spin is $150.
Payouts and symbols
Symbols used in the slot fit a farm theme. The role of traditional playing cards is played by vegetables and fruits (corn, eggplants, oranges, apples and watermelon) that are all low-paying symbols. Awards for hitting five of a kind start at x40 and up to x150. Well, that’s not bad for low symbols like these. Apart from them, the slot has a set of high-paying icons such as Bar, Barn, White Sheep and Black Sheep (in ascending order of winning amount). The highest possible prize that regular symbols award is $15,000, should you hit five Black Sheep exactly on a payline.
Bar Bar Black Sheep Bonus
Slots are pure games of chance where all spins result in a random outcome, so it is quite natural that the reviewed slot has a bonus feature that awards a random multiplier. This admirable bonus activates when you get two Bars on the first and second reel plus one Black Sheep on the third reel. These three symbols should pop up in a straight line – on a top, middle or bottom row. A counter with three segments then appears in place of those symbols and begins spinning quickly. After it comes to a stop, every segment will contain a number 1 to 9 that, taken together, form a three-digit number that shows your bonus multiplier. It seems clear that the maximum value the counter can potentially produce is 999. And this bonus multiplier applies to a line bet. So betting the maximum of $10 per line, the top prize would figure up to $9990.
The slot’s Logo card is a wild that substitutes for all regular icons. Beside its splendid ability to substitute, the wild also completes its own combinations left to right, like any regular symbol. Even two wilds landed on a payline bring you x5, while five wilds award x2000 ($30,000 at max), which makes it the top jackpot in the game.
Scatter and free spins
A wool sack that alludes to the nursery rhyme serves as a scatter symbol. Unlike any other images on the reels, scatters pay in any position, with five of them paying x100 times a total bet ($15,000). In modern slot building, scatters tend to trigger some bonus events, and the scatters in this slot constitutes no exception. Hitting three, or greater, of them gives access to 10, 15 or 20 free spins with all winnings tripled during the feature. It’s possible to re-trigger a set of extra free spins from within themselves.
