It’s time for a world class shave 2.0. The re-release of Thunderkick’s Barber Shop slot where you can win up to 2,355x over your total bet. Instead of 25 pay-lines, the “Uncut” version has 40, which is only less than Zoom and Flame Busters. And while it’s medium variance, it has one of the lowest hit frequencies of 22.50%.
The Barber Shop Uncut mobile slot pre-release is available at Casumo, exclusively. This means you can play it right now before it hits other recommended Thunderkick casinos like Calzone and Larry on 7th June.
There you’ll also find their very latest Flame Busters slot too.
Is it any better than the original Barber Shop game? And why we don’t see any Wilds or progressive win multipliers, like you get with The Wild Chase, for instance. More importantly, is this game fun enough to play for real money?
In this full Barber Shop Uncut slot review, I’ll show you its 3 main features that make it so hooking. But be careful – it can shave off a big portion of your balance pretty quickly if you don’t know what you’re doing.
Got the balls? Here’s what you should know before play.
Locking Wins and Re-spins Feature – Accumulate Big Wins with Sticky Win Symbols
To begin with, the Barber Shop Uncut slot has 15 reels (3x more than normally).
That’s nothing new as all that actually happens is that each reel tile spins independently and not in the “wheel” format. If you’ve ever played NetEnt’s Jack Hammer, then you get the point.
There are 9 regular stacked symbols, which pay up to 15x the total wager amount. Since you can’t win both ways, the 40 lines only pay from left to right. If you are serious about winning in both directions, then check out what they did to Turning Totems earlier in 2017.
Surprisingly, the barbershop slot has no wild symbols or substitutions to help you win any more easily. Sadly, there are no increasing Multipliers either, which is something you do get in other Thunderkick games like Frog Grog, Fruit Warp and Sunset Delight.
But we’re not done, as there’s one bonus to help you trim off decent wins from the prize pool, in both the base game and bonus.
It’s the Locking Wins with Re-spins Feature that applies to each and every symbol in this online game.
Long story short, whenever you trigger a win, the symbols get marked and stick as the non-winning icons re-spin for a second-chance win. The good news is that the re-spin is free and should the winning combo get any bigger, you’ll get another free spin!
The re-spins continue until there are no more bet-line wins or no more reels available to spin. But because there are 15 more pay-lines in the 2017 Barber Shop slot, it’s much easier to do just that.
Note: The win is paid out only at the end or when the re-spins finish.
And here’s another surprise.
Free Spins Bonus with Tripled Wins – Win Up to 30 Free Games with All Wins x3
To win the freebies, you need at least 5 of the Bonus symbols, anywhere on the screen. Note that they can also stick when there’s 3 or more in view, making it easier to collect more.
Why you need more Bonuses? – The game will award you 2 extra free spins for every extra Bonus icon beyond the minimum of 5.
Hence, if you fill up the whole screen with the Bonus icon, you’ll win the maximum of 30 Free Spins. By the way, all wins during the bonus are tripled!
But wait, we’re still not finished with the haircut yet.
Inwinity Spin Feature – Spin Until You Win (Only in Free Spins Bonus)
The Swedish studio seems to like adding some “hidden” bonuses to boost players’ wins even further.
They did so with Luchadora by adding the almighty La Luchadora Wild symbol, and have now spiced up the Barber Shop Uncut Free Spins too.
It’s their trademarked Inwinity Spin, which some of the more active players might remember from video slots like in Birds on a Wire and Turning Totems (before the update).
What this tiny but mighty bonus does is award one more free spin when all the rest are depleted. And it will continue re-spinning until you’re guaranteed a win.
If you’re lucky, you might as well trigger the jackpot of 2,355x your total stake, because the x3 multiplier is still active!
So what’s the final verdict?
Conclusion – Play Barber Shop Uncut Mobile Slot From 7th June 2017
Thunderkick are doing a great job releasing quality mobile slots on a monthly basis.
While the Barber Shop Uncut can be considered as a re-launch, it still promises that world-class shave.
Although the jackpot is almost twice as low compared to the 243-ways Flame Busters (5,280x your bet), the long-term average return to player or RTP kicks ass at 97%.
The slot’s win hit frequency of 22.50% can be pretty daunting, so you might want to start with smaller stakes first. The good news is that the minimum stake is just 0.10 credits.
It’s thanks to these 3 features, that you can win above 2,000x your total wager:
- Locking wins with re-spins – any winning combo on the 40 lines locks into place for a free re-spin, so you can expand the one or more combos even more for a bigger payout.
- Free Spins bonus – 5 of more Bonus symbols trigger 10 – 30 free games, during which all wins are tripled.
- Inwinity Spin feature – when all Free Spins are played, you get an Inwinity Spin, which guarantees a win no matter how many tries it takes.
Play the Barber Shop Uncut slot now at Casumo Casino, or at other top Thunderkick casinos like Calzone and Ikibu from 7th June 2017.
