Bar Bar Black Sheep is a fun pokie from Microgaming. From the name, you’d be right to guess it’s a clever and cute take on the classic nursery rhyme. It comes in two flavours – as a 3 reel classic slot, and as a 5 reel, 15 payline video pokie. This review will focus on the 5 reel game, which has more bonus features.
How to Play
One of the simplest and most loved children’s rhymes, Microgaming has made this pokie fittingly simple for players to get started with. The 15 paylines are fixed – that is, they are active at all times – so you know your chances of hitting a payline are always maximized. All you have to do is adjust your bet size, which starts at just $0.15 a spin. If you’re super high rolling, you can choose to go all the way up to $150 a spin. All wins are multiplied by your bet per line, so even if you’re not ready to go up to the maximum bet, it’s worth putting in a bit more into a higher bet if you have the extra in your budget. The symbols in Bar Bar Black Sheep are:
- Bar Bar Black Sheep Logo (also a Wild)
- Sacks of Wool (also a Free Spin Scatter)
- Black Sheep
- White Sheep
- Bar logo
Graphics and Sounds
Bar Bar Black Sheep is set in a pleasant day on the farm. Lots of green pasture and fruits for the sheep to chomp on. While sheep are slow moving animals that enjoy taking their time, the reels spin fast and the action happens quickly. A chirpy soundtrack gives you a hop and a skip in your frolics.
Bar Bar Black Sheep has a fixed jackpot of 20x your line bet, which can be won if you spin 5 of the Bar Bat Black Sheep Wild symbols. We know, it doesn’t sound like much, but if you throw in Bar Bar Black Sheep Multiplier, which can go all the way up to 999x, you could be looking at some pretty serious cash to bring home.
This is a pretty straightforward little pokie, and it’s topped with some lucrative special features that’s made it one of Microgaming’s most popular releases.
Bar Bar Black Sheep Bonus
Get 2 Bar symbols, followed by a Black Sheep symbol on a straight line from left to right, and you will trigger this super amazing bonus. You’ll get a random multiplier that can go all the way up to 999x. It has to be these symbols only, and in this specific order – wilds won’t help you. This bonus feature happens frequently enough and definitely makes up for the relatively small jackpot.
Spin 3, 4 or 5 of those Sacks of Wool Free Spin scatters, and you will trigger 10, 15, or 20 free spins. During free spins, all wins get an automatic 3x multiplier – unless you spin a Bar Bar Black Sheep Bonus, in which case you’re looking at an even bigger win. Free spins can be retriggered
It’s simple and it’s cute, but don’t be fooled by Bar Bar Black Sheep’s cuteness. This game is famous for its multipliers, especially the Bar Bar Black Sheep bonus that gives out huge multipliers that can go up to 999x your win. The RTP is around 95.5%, so while you won’t see wins all the time, they’ll come frequently enough. Check out these green pastures for yourself.
