Launched in the mid-2000s, Bar Bar Black Sheep is one of Microgaming's most-successful slots of all time. But recently, Microgaming decided that this flock needed to be modernized with a 5-reel, 15-payline setup, as opposed to the old 3-reel version. If you ever played the previous version, you'll notice that there's more than just sheep on the farm this time, including barns, crops and wool. You can also win much bigger payouts, which we'll discuss below along with other upgrades to this slot.
The old Bar Bar game only offered one payline and limited betting options. Now, you must play all 15 paylines, making the minimum wager worth €0.15 when the coin size is just €0.01. Assuming you use the max coin size of €2.00, you'll be risking €30.00 per spin.
You'll also notice the introduction of some new symbols, besides just BAR and sheep. The new version features apples, barns, corn, eggplants, oranges, watermelons, wool, BAR, white sheep and black sheep. The BAR BAR black sheep symbol is wild, substituting for any other symbol except the bag of wool scatter.
When two BAR symbols appear side by side on the reels, a set of 3D reels will pop up and begin spinning. Once they stop spinning, your line bet will be multiplied by up to 999x. If you've got the betting options maxed out, you could win up to €95,000.
You can also trigger free spins by landing three or more bags of wool anywhere on the reels. Three symbols equals 10 free spins, four symbols equals 15 free spins and five symbols equals 20 free spins. The background will turn to black and all wins are multiplied by 3x.
The RTP for the 5-reel Bar Bar Black Sheep is 95.03%, which is slightly lower than some of Microgaming's new slots. Even still, if you enjoyed the original version, then the upgraded Bar Bar Black Sheep is definitely worth a few spins.
