Microgaming Just Launched Bar Bar Black Sheep Pokie
Bar Bar Black Sheep is a new pokie developed by Microgaming. It is themed around the classic nursery rhyme, known to all children. Microgaming have imagined up a farm and thrown together a cartoony setting for this set of reels. Microgaming are one of the oldest pokie developers in the industry, they might even be the oldest as they claim to have released the first online casino in 1994.
What We Like
Bar Bar Black Sheep is a well-designed game. The colour scheme is upbeat and uses bright colours to create an adult version of this nursery rhyme. It is a pretty pokie with an excellent use of space and colour.
We like how they have integrated the theme into aspects of the gameplay, a prime example of this is that lines from the nursery rhyme are winning lines on the reels. ‘Bar bar black sheep have you any wool.’ The highest value win on the reels is made with a Bar symbols, followed by another Bar Symbol and then a Black Sheep Symbol. This is a clever idea and we think Microgaming are to be commended for their originality. This combination of symbols also unlocks the Bar Bar Black Sheep feature.
A set of three reels will pop up when the symbols land in that order. They have numbers 1 through to 9 in them, and they will spin to generate a three-digit number from 111 to 999. This number will be multiplied by the payline. This results in some massive wins, and this is the feature to look out for.
The game has a free spins feature with a 3x multiplier. Microgaming has been including a 3x multiplier in a lot of their new titles, and we are loving it. It is a sure way to leave with some decent winnings. We like the game’s jackpot. The maximum payout for this game is a massive £95,000. These are some impressive winnings.
Microgaming has really invested a lot of time into this game, which we are grateful for, because it comes off the back of some mediocre titles from the company. This game was originally a 3×5 pokie, which was ugly and met with a poor reception. They have gentrified the pokie and made it into a great new game.
What we do not like
This game could do with a few extra paylines. It only has twenty, and we think with for this game to be truly show stopping, it needs 243. We are really just looking for something to pick on. This is a great game, and it is hard to fault it.
Is this game worth playing?
This is a great game and for that reason we recommend that, you give it a chance. It is a pretty pokie with a clever theme, and some great winning potential.
We have seen a lot of mediocre games from Microgaming in recent times, and were beginning to worry. This pokie looks to redeem them, and we will be playing it until something better comes along.
