Bar Bar Black Sheep video pokie from Microgaming has its genesis in a 3-reels classic pokie, which has been very popular at Australian online casinos. The allusion to the well-known children’s rhyme is intentional. The reels are set in a green field and the symbols are bright and cheerful. You will hear the jingle of the rhyme as the game loads. The Bar Bar Black Sheep logo is not only the wild symbol, but it also awards the highest line payouts. The other high line payouts are awarded by the black sheep, white sheep, barn and bar symbols. The low paying symbols are farm produce in keeping with the theme and include melon, apple, orange, brinjal and corn. The bag of wool, from the children’s rhyme, is the scatter symbol and awards payouts multiplied by the total bet when two or more appear anywhere on the reels.
The video pokie brings in modern functionality to attract contemporary players. Microgaming has introduced an innovative Bar Bar Black Sheep bonus feature in this online pokie. Taking its significance from the name, this on-screen bonus feature is triggered when you land two bar symbols followed by the black sheep symbol. The symbols have to appear in a straight row and not in a payline, and they must appear in adjacent cells. Wild substitutions will not count for the trigger. The three symbols turn into a mini reel set, with each reel containing numbers up to 9. The reels are spun and the number displayed multiplies the line bet to give your bonus award. The maximum that you can win is 999x the line bet. This feature is available both in the base game and the free spins. Three, four or five scatters trigger 10, 15 or 20 free spins respectively. All payouts are tripled except those arising from the Bar Bar Black Sheep bonus feature. The free spins can be retriggered.
Bar Bar Black Sheep is a 15 paylines online pokie. All paylines are enabled by default. In this video pokie you can wager up to 20 coins per payline and select the coin size from AU$0.01 to AU$2.00. The maximum line bet is AU$40 and the maximum total bet per spin is AU$600. This should be more than sufficient to interest the high roller players at Australian online casinos. The maximum line payout in this online pokie is 2,000 times the line bet. With maximum bet of 20 coins of AU$2 each this will convert to 40,000 coins or AU$80,000 in the base game and AU$240,000 in the free spins. The top scatter payout is 100 times the total bet, which can yield as much as AU$60,000 in the base game. The maximum payout per spin arising from multiple line wins is capped at AU$380,000. The payout table adjusts with the bet made so you can read the absolute payouts in credits directly. Microgaming reports a payout percentage of between 95% and 96% with low volatility. Bar Bar Black Sheep is also live at Australian mobile casinos.
