Bar Bar Black Sheep, have you any gold? Yes, sir, yes, sir, three reels full. That's the nursery rhyme that came into my head while playing the Bar Bar Black Sheep slot from Microgaming. The game takes you out to the farm with the chance to shear some wool for a chance to win big.
Bar Bar Black Sheep is a 5 reel, 15 payline video slot that is based out on a sheep farm, with many of the game's features and symbols being based off of this theme. The game has a series of farm based symbols that include eggplants, apples, corn, oranges, watermelon, a barn, black sheep, feed bag, game title symbol, and white sheep. A bar symbol also makes its way onto the reels, which is where the game derives its name.
Features in the game include wild symbols, scatters, free spins, win multipliers, and more. While things are pretty simplistic here compared to many other video slots, Bar Bar Black Sheep does have one killer app. If you end up lining up two bar symbols in a row and then a black sheep, you get a huge bonus, which can give you a win multiplier of up to 999x the wagered amount. Needless to say, this is pretty cool.
Bar Bar Black Sheep has a posted return to player percentage of 95%, which isn't the highest I've ever seen, but it is competitive with a lot of other games.
I'll be the first to say that I didn't care much for the game's design, but the feature set and gameplay did grow on me. I hit the Bar Bar Black Sheep feature more than once, which gave me a huge boost, and made up for the lengthy time in between free spin rounds.
If you're looking for a hot new game to play, I highly recommend you check out this Microgaming slot.
