Bar Bar Black Sheep SlotBar Bar Black Sheep is a classic slot by key software supplier Microgaming that is played on three reels and one payline stretching across the middle. The slot gives out a retro feel while at the same time boasting a fun theme, inspired by a popular nursery rhyme, dedicated to the ruminant mammal one can see on most farms in the countryside – the sheep. These domesticated animals have become somewhat of a byword for stupidity but they play an important role here – that of the highest paying symbols in this game.

This is an old-school slot and it certainly shows in the limited number of features and special symbols it comes with. Despite that, the game is equipped with a wild which substitutes for all other icons and makes lucky spins all the more rewarding with a multiplier on the wins. Other symbols starring on the reels of this classic slot include the regular bars, sacks of wool as well as black and white sheep for the high-value icons.

The pastoral countryside atmosphere is further complemented by the birds’ chirping and the gentle bleating of sheep in the background. The betting limits may differ from one Microgaming casino to another because of the configurable software, but players can wager one to three coins per spin. The game is normally playable from $0.20 upward.

Special Symbols

The majority of the payouts in Bar Bar Black Sheep are awarded by the triple, double and single bar symbols. While the term “black sheep” is idiomatically used for the most disreputable member of a given family, here it refers to the highest paying symbol, the black sheep which can earn you a hefty payout when it lines up next to two bars on the payline.

The top jackpot of 1,600 credits goes to the player who lines up this combination of sheep and bars when betting the maximum of three coins per spin. This is followed by the second best payout for three matching white sheep that can earn you 60/120/180 credits, depending on the number of coins you have put on stake. The game also awards players for Any Two or Any One wool-sack symbols but this is the lowest possible payout one can collect in Bar Bar Black Sheep, up to 6 credits for three-coin bets.

The black sheep is also wild and as such, it replaces symbols in cases of near misses. It can also give your payouts a good boost with its multipliers. To benefit from those, you need one black sheep to sub for another symbol on the reels, in which case your winnings will be tripled with this special icon’s 3x multiplier.

Bonus Games and Features

The three-reel version of Bar Bar Black Sheep sadly does not feature any bonus games to make for a more versatile gameplay. However, following the game’s huge success, Microgaming released another version with five reels and 15 paylines where players can potentially unlock a round of 40 free spins. But in the original three-reel version, the only extra feature is the added black sheep wild.

There are several other handy features, though, that provide players with a greater control over their gameplay. First off, you have the Autoplay functionality but keep in mind this is an option only when you switch from Regular to Expert mode. This is a convenient feature as it relieves you from the burden of having to constantly hit that button to make the reels spin round after round. In Autoplay mode, the reels can rotate without any interruption anywhere between 5 and 500 times but be careful with this feature – on a bad day, it might diminish your bankroll to zero. To prevent this from happening, you can easily set the game up so that Autoplay ceases after your profits exceed a specific amount.

Other than that, you can alter your bet sizing using the standard controls. Coin size is reduced or increased with the “-” and “+” buttons. Bet One enables you to bet only one credit on a spin but if you click it repeatedly, you will increase the number of coins. Respectively, Bet Max automatically sets the reels in motion with the maximum of three coins per spin.


Head out to the countryside for an enjoyable, relaxing and above all, rewarding spinning session by trying out the classic Microgaming offering that is Bar Bar Black Sheep. The visual presentation comes off a tad puerile but this is only natural considering the game is largely based on a nursery rhyme. Besides, one cannot help but find the sheep bleating from the reels adorable.

Sure, there are more graphically advanced slots, with a lot more features but this game’s charm lies in its very straightforwardness. Besides, there are still wilds with 3x multipliers to help you hit more winning combos and swell the payouts you bag. Bar Bar Black Sheep is also available across all devices, mobile or desktop, so you can make an attempt to scoop the top prize anytime you feel like it. If you are looking for something more advanced, you can try the five-reel, 15-payline version of the game where there is a bonus round of up to 40 free spins with 3x multipliers.
