Barber Shop Uncut: Does it cut the mustard?
Here it is at last! The next installment in the popular Barber Shop series. Game developer Thunderkick has done it again. This time it’s bigger, has better features and higher payouts, but the same reliable quality and fun of the previous episodes. The paytable has been completely reworked and the gameplay is based on alternative features, giving the game a fresh look and appeal.
Laying out the Shop
Barber Shop Uncut has a typical 5 x 3 column layout. Since each reel spins individually, there are effects 15 reels. This in turn creates 40 active paylines upon which to wager.
Paying out from left to right, there is quite a wide betting range starting from 10p per spin going up to £100. This is sure to be popular with high rollers, whilst novices can wager just 20p per spin. The winning symbols do not pay out on their own, they are multiplied by the bet amount itself, so winnings can really add up if you are patient.

The bonuses are pretty engrossing and lend real excitement to the game flow. However, getting 5 similar symbols on the reels signifies winning a number of free spins. Starting off with 10, each time another ‘hot’ Wild symbol lands again, you get another 2 free spins each time with a maximum of 30 given out in total. Besides all this, there is a 3 times multiplier, so the wins come thick and thin.
The Inwinity Spin feature gives the option of having one more spin after you have used all yours up. The reels will spin until you finally get a winning combination. So one way or the other, you will win! It’s a great addition to the other gameplay functions.
Finally, the Re-Spin bonus is a solid feature that offers additional re-spins, which is what the game is really all about, the re-spins offer the best chance of winning the big one. Which brings us to…
