A new slot title has hit the online casinos, a five-reel version of the popular three-reel game, Bar Bar Black Sheep.
Microgaming are the developers that have revealed the new game and we popped to 32Red Casino to give the reels a spin.
When the game first opens you’re shown that you can win a multiplier of up to 999x your initial bet if you spin in two bars followed by a black sheep. Potentially that’s a lot of wool in winnings!
The game is played across five reels and offers 15 different paylines. It’s one that will definitely be filed under the ‘cutesy’ category thanks to a theme taken from a children’s nursery rhyme.
Whilst the spelling of the original rhyme is Baa Baa, once you have launched the game, the reason for the change will become clear.
The overall theme is a rural environment, namely a farm and the symbols on the reels in this Microgaming game are all relevant to farming in some way or another, whether it’s livestock or vegetable.
There are oranges, aubergines, apples and corn on the reels alongside a barn, a white sheep, the Bar symbols, free spins, and the Bar Bar Black Sheep symbol.
The latter symbol is your wild and can be substituted for any of the others with exception of the free spins sack of grain. The free spins sack of grain is also the scatter symbol.
You will activate the free spins by landing 3, 4 or 5 of the grains on the reels and this will trigger 10, 15 or 20 free games.
Whilst in free spin mode all wins are multiplied by three expect if you spin in the 2x Bars and a Black Sheep in a straight line when you could have win multiplied by 999x.
Landing more bags of grain on the reels during the bonus round can reactivate free spins.
In comparison with many other Microgaming titles that we have reviewed, this just feel a little flat.
Whilst it has the free spins feature and the chance to win 999x your initial bet for spinning in the right symbols, it just wasn’t interactive enough.
