Graphics and audio

Like the original game, Barber Shop Uncut features cartoon-style graphics accompanied by light and cheerful music playing in the background. Pastel tones give the game a relaxed feel. It offers players a light-hearted playing experience with a few laughs and no sudden surprises – at least in terms of visuals.

The symbols are represented by the items you’d expect to find inside a barber shop, like scissors, combs, shaving foam, brushes, razors, and a few characters with different beard styles who are clearly the barber shop patrons.

The reels spin really fast, which is good news for most players who don’t like waiting forever for a spin to end. Although calm in design and audio, Barber Shop Uncut is still an action-packed slot.

Game features and bonuses

Barber Shop Uncut features five reels and 40 paylines, with the bets ranging anywhere from 0.10 to 100.00 coins per spin, making it equally suitable for casual players and high rollers. The slot has a theoretical Return to Player of 97%, which is definitely on the higher side.

Barber Shop Uncut has several interesting features designed to help players win more and have more fun in the process. These include:

Respins: Whenever there are three or more winning symbols in the payline, they’ll remain locked in place, and the reels will spin again. Respins will continue as long as you keep making new or adding to the existing paylines, with all paying symbols locked in place. At the end of the feature, you’ll be paid for all the locked combinations.

Bonus game: Landing five or more bonus symbols will trigger the bonus game. Depending on the number of the Bonus symbols, you can get between ten and 30 free spins, and during these free spins, all wins are multiplied by three.

Inwinity Spin: Triggered at the end of the bonus round, Inwinity Spin (yes that is spelled correctly) features will continue to spin the reels until you land at least one winning combination.

The highest paying symbol is the patron with a yellow mustache, and one full line will pay 15x your bet. The maximum win you can expect on any particular spin is a theoretical, and massive 55,800x the stake. However Thunderkick said that after its simulation of the game, the maximum it achieved was 2,355x the bet.

The game was launched this week across a range of casinos including Casumo, LeoVegas, Mr Green, Unibet and Vera and John.

OUR VERDICT

If the original Barber Shop was successful then this revamped and improved version should go a long way to achieving a similar popularity.

The respins feature will have a familiar feel for anyone who enjoys playing Jack Hammer or similar slots.

However, thanks to this familiarity, nice graphics, decent winning chances, and quite high RTP, Barber Shop Uncut is definitely a game you should at least take for a few spins and see how it sits with you. Remember you can play in demo mode first before wagering real money.
