Bar Bar Blacksheep is one of those rare slots, which manage to combine the classic theme with a modern one. The slot comes from Microgaming, it’s one of their latest releases, and its action revolves around what happens on a farm. The hero of the story is obviously the black sheep, the only one colored this way in a flock of white sheep. The game successfully mixes a couple of classic symbols among the ones that would usually belong on a farm, and even injects a bit of humor, with that black sheep which looks like an Elvis impersonator. You’re going to encounter 15 lines on its 5 reels, and with the biggest wagers in place, the rewards can return to you up to $80,000. The list of features gives you a wild, a bonus feature with a mini slot, scatters, multipliers and free spins.
Betting and Prizes
It can be an expensive slot to play, its largest wager reaching a $600 value that few will be able to touch. You are not asked to decide how many lines are in use, there will be 15 at all times, but you do pick how many coins per line you want, and their value. The former choice is for 1 to 20 coins per line, while the latter lets you take the coin size up to $2. The bet for a single line can get up to $40, which explains how the total is at $600.
Should you land five wild Logos on one of the 15 lines, the reward could go up to $80,000, which unfortunately is only 2,000x the line bet, so a relatively low reward. A 3x multiplier during free spins could take it to 6,000x ($240,000).
Bar Bar Blacksheep Slot Features
The feature which gave Bar Bar Black Sheep slot its name is triggered when you have the three symbols mentioned by the title, in that order. Two Bar symbols and One Black Sheep, arranged on the same row, will get you a mini slot feature in those three positions, which will spin numbers from 1 to 9. The resulting number is your prize, a multiple of the line bet. It can go up to 999x.
The second feature is the wild, its image that of the game logo. It forms combinations with other wilds, pays very well, and it also substitutes for other symbols.
The third one is the scatter, showing a sac of wool, paying up to 100x the wager with five symbols and triggering 10, 15 or 20 free spins, with 3, 4 or 5 icons. All wins from the free spins get a 3x multiplier, the exception being the mini slot feature.
Theme & Design
I rarely enjoy slots which have classic symbols on their reels, but this one doesn’t go too far. There are only a few symbols like this, including the Bar icon, and a few fruits that don’t belong on a farm in US (oranges). The quality is excellent, and there is even a bit of humor in its design.
I don’t doubt that you will like this game, the only downside being the below average number of lines and the high wagering requirements if you want a big prize out of it.
