This game reminds us of the Big Bad Wolf slot in many ways- great graphics and a famous theme.
The wombat says: Sheep are very silly aren’t they?
And this lot from Microgaming are no different. Just look at those silly faces! (not as silly as those Aardvarks in the Wild Antics slot, granted, but still silly).
Yeah I know a thing or two about sheep. I used to run a sheep shearing farm just outside Wondonga, until I lost the whole shebang in a game of poker (they do like a flutter those woolly beasts, and they’re sneakier than they look).
Anyway in this slot, the sheep are combined with traditional fruit machine bar symbols to give you some baa-tastic wins. It’s a cartoon game, like that ol’ favourite- Irish Eyes 2. Let’s take a closer look…
This game was originally released a few years ago as a 3-reeler, but now Bar Bar Black Sheep slot is your average 5 x 3 reel slot with 15 paylines. Yes, the game is a bit on the simple side, but it’s still a upgrade! Your woolly slot symbols include white and black sheep, bar icons and bags of wool, plus fruity favourites watermelons, apples, oranges, ears of corn, and errr, what looks like an aubergine… Weird. As an added little extra, if you land 2 bars and a sheep in a row on a winning payline, you’ll scoop 999x your original bet. Good old sheep! Sadly, it’s not available during the Free Spins…
Although black sheep usually refers to a proper nutty member of your family, in this game you’ll be be overjoyed to see them as the make up Wild symbol. Yes, the Black Sheep Wild can substitute for any other symbol to complete your winning combos. He also acts as a 2x multiplier, doubling the wins he appears in. Get 3 of these Wilds on the reels and you’ll scoop 500, 1000 or 1600 coins depending on your bet size.
Bar Bar Black Sheep Slot on Mobile
The slot is optimised for your tablet device or mobile phone, as well as your desktop computer, which this Wombat likes. The game keeps all the same Sheepy features, but the reels go full screen.
Free Spins and Scatter
Yes sir, yes sir, 3x Bags of Wool. Ha! If you land 3 or more of the fluffy Bags of Wool Scatter, you’ll trigger the Free Spins, which are accompanied by a Country Music version of the famous nursery rhyme! We liked the Dolly Parton version better to be honest. 3 Scatters will give you 10 Free Spins, 4 will reward you with 15 and 5 Scatters gets you 20 Free Spins. You’ll also pick up a 3x multiplier except AND the round can be retriggered.
Now here’s the thing: This game is simple and lacks a lot of the features we’ve come to associate with Microgaming slots such as separate screen bonus rounds, and elaborate pick ’em features. But, the simplicity of this slot works for us. We like the cute farmyard graphics and the Sheep symbols themselves will put a grin on your (lamb) chops, there’s no denying. This wombat thinks the standard gameplay will keep you busy without the need for extras, which makes a nice change. And it works on mobiles and tablets.
