Bar Bar Black Sheep pokie
In 2004, Microgaming released a pokie with three reels called Bar Bar Black Sheep pokie. Twelve years later, this pokie deserves an honourable right to get a second life in a new version with five reels. Developers do not have to make substantial amendments to gamblers` favourite sheep story, limiting the expansion of the field of play and the use of the more modern interface.
Two additional reels not only allow to diversify the game-play with new thematic symbols of a fruit and vegetable sheep menu but also provide the opportunity to play for free in this pokie without signing up, as well as a decent best sheep farmer of 95 000 coins.
Personal testers opinion
I would like to start with the fact that Bar Bar Black Sheep machine has an average length of the cycle and volatility. The pay combinations are formed with a small frequency. You catch the hit every 3rd spin - 31,62%. But the bonus you can rarely find, following the statistic, it can be triggered in every 140th spin (0,71%) But for the payments, it will be reserved only 25% of the total number from the prize pool. Neutral recommendation about bonus hunters (wagering is 5.62 out of 10.)

Description of the pokie
The colour scheme is dominated by green colour, which is not surprising, because the basic background there is a large valley, lying on both banks of the meandering river. The game screen seamlessly blends into the landscape of the sheep`s paradise, and themed images in the form of ears of corn, apples, melons, oranges, and, in fact, curly sheep grazing in pen, give the impression of completeness of the picture. Nobody said that catching the sheep is easy. The music motives are accompanying the game, with ease and naturalness domination, and even the bleating of sheep does not make a harmful dissonance.
