Bar Bar Black Sheep Slot Machine

Bar Bar Black Sheep was once a 3-reel classic slot from Microgaming. Well, it still is, if we’re being totally honest. However, since those days, aMicrogaming have transformed the slot into a 5-reel video slot, too. This extended version of the game has more bonuses, and better graphics than its predecessor, whilst maintaining the fruit machine/nursery rhyme feel of the original. Bar Bar Black Sheep contains just 15 paylines spread over its 5 reels, and players can opt to wager anything from a floor of 15p up to £15 in total. The non-progressive jackpot is way off target, but Bar Bar Black Sheep is still well worth a look.

Special features

Players should look out for the Bar Bar Black Sheep logo. This is a wild symbol, and as a wild, it can substitute for all other symbols in the game, except for the scatter symbols.

Those scatter symbols appear in the form of a sack of corn. Unlike wild symbols, scatter icons are easy to spot since they have “free spin” written on them. Players who land 3 or more of the free spin symbols anywhere on the reels during a single spin will trigger a free spins bonus round.

Players should also note that landing 2 bar symbols on the reels of the slot in a straight line, following by a black sheep symbols will trigger a random multiplier against your total line bet. You could win as much as 999x your total bet with this feature, which is only available in the base game.

Bonus features

If the player lands 3, 4 or 5 such free spin symbols on the reels of the slot, they will begin the free spins bonus round with 10, 15 or 20 free spins in all. During the free spins bonus game, all winnings a player encounters will be tripled by the game. Additional free spins can be won by landing more scatters on the reels of the slot.


Far more complex than its 3-reel predecessor, this nursery rhyme themed slot is certainly capable of competing with any other developers’ top fairy tale themed slots and is certainly worth trying your hand at.
