A new cross-platform slots title that is being launched by Microgaming today is one that will appeal to nostalgia enthusiasts and modern gamers alike thanks to its reinvention of a retro classic. Bar Bar Black Sheep takes its inspiration from the old three-reel ‘pub fruity’ machines that used to pay prizes for getting three BAR symbols on the win line, as well as from the children’s nursery rhyme, Baa Baa Black Sheep, to deliver an online slots experience that can pay out up to 95,000 credits.


This game, which will be available at both Microgaming and Quickfire venues, boasts 5 reels and 15 fixed pay lines. The reels are stocked with a variety of traditional symbols, including oranges, plums, melons, and the obvious BARs, as well as brand new symbols, such as a corn cob, bags of wool and, at the top of the pay table, the Black Sheep himself.

Players who get three or more bags of wool Scatter symbols on the reels at the same time (as in the nursery rhyme’s reference to ‘three bags full’) will trigger a Free Spins round. The number of free spins that are awarded is dependent on the number of scatters that triggered the feature, with 10, 15 or 20 spins being awarded for 3, 4 or 5 symbols, respectively. All wins during this round are tripled, with the exception of one, which triggers a Bonus Feature in its own right.

The exception we are referring to is the Bar Bar Black Sheep combination, which comprises two BAR symbols and the Black Sheep symbol, in that order, anywhere on the reels. When you get this combination you will trigger an on-screen bonus that awards a 3-digit multiplier and enables you to win as much as 999 times your line bet. 

‘Bar Bar Black Sheep is a fun addition to our ever expanding games portfolio,’ said Neill Whyte, who is Head of Product Channels at Microgaming. ‘Available on desktop and mobile, we are upholding our commitment to supply our operators with cross-platform content, to ensure players can experience the same game no matter what device they are playing on.’

Bar Bar Black Sheep is an impressive new title for spring that is well worth checking out. The game can be played at 32Red Casino and at other venues on the Microgaming or Quickfire platforms.
