Whoa, Nelly! Is it true what we’re hearin’ about this Bar Bar Black Sheep 5-Reel slot? Are you telling me somebody made a slot game with honest-t’-goodness fruit symbols like as in a, whatchamacallit, a … a fruit machine? Well, that just good and tickles my hide, that does. Pity about the name, though…
Well, not exactly, but it certainly does harken back to the days when the fruit machine was the dominant beast when the species of slot machines.
Better yet, the Bar Bar Black Sheep slot (and if you think we’re gonna write/type out the full name of this thing every time, you’ve got another think coming) even expands upon the range of the not infrequently seen watermelons, plums, oranges, apples and BARs with colourful additions of eggplants and corn.
We sincerely hope others in the online casino software development world, i.e. those whose sole idea for filling the low-paying symbols in a slots game is the boring playing card symbols are attentive to the obvious charms of Black Sheep. Which, incidentally, is what this slots game should have been called.
Because of the main character! Joining the tasty symbols in the low end of the paytable are things like the barn, plain ol’ sheep and … a sheep with a black hairpiece (!!!) only. You’ve heard of the wolf in sheep’s clothing? This would-be Rambeau may actually be balding, middle-aged mutton in sheep’s clothing…
And this phony seducer of ewes isn’t even the wild! That’s the Black Sheep logo. (See? See?!?!?! Even Microgaming knows this game should be called the Black Sheep slot!) Meanwhile, our human-hair coiffed sheep is the scatter, which is probably what sensible ewes do when he comes sniffing around…
It’s a high-variance slot, so expect some super large payouts, but lots of dad spins in which nothing is won.
“The Baa Baa Black Sheep Bonus” feature pays out after landing two BARs plus a predetermined third symbol in reels 1, 2 and 3. This pays up to a ridiculous 999x the payline bet.
In the base game, you’ll win 133x the payline bet for five scatters on a payline, and five wilds is worth a nice 100x. See what we mean about high variance? Such massive payouts on single spins gotta be balanced by lotsa little Ls, right…? (Mathematics and probability suck.)
Trip three or more scatters across an active payline to enter free spins; three, four or five scatters win the player 10, 15 or 20 free spins, respectively. During the free spins, wins get a 3x bonus multiplier as well.
