  • A bag with the phrase free spins is the Scatter symbol. The combination of 2, 3, 4 or 5 Scatters pays regardless of the arrangement on the reels. These combos pay 1, 2, 10 or 100 times the total bet. The combinations of three to five Scatters also trigger the free spins.

Free spins

The free spins round in the Bar Bar Blacksheep is a classic one. You don't spend funds from your balance to start the spins of the reels.

The duration of the free spins round depends on the number of Scatters. The combination of 3, 4 or 5 of these symbols awards 10, 15 or 20 free spins respectively.

All the payouts during the free spins round are tripled, except for the Bar Bar Blacksheep combination. The special symbols act in the same way. Landing of the combination of 3 to 5 Scatters triggers the corresponding number of extra free spins.

Bar Bar Blacksheep bonus

Besides regular combinations the slot lets you form the irregular combination — Bar Bar Blacksheep. As the name offers, you need to collect a combination of two bar icons and one picture of the black sheep.

This combination is counted as a bonus one if it appears on lines 1 to 3 of reels 1 to 3 only. In other words, this combination should land on the first three horizontal rows.

When this happens, the winning boxes turn into a 3-reel mini slot. The slot launches its reel spins. Digit icons appear in the boxes. The resulting number is the line bet multiplier.
