Barber Shop


Barber Shop Slot Games Review

Not having any hair it’s a while since I’ve been to a barber shop. However I’m definitely more than happy to play the Thunderkick ‘Barbershop’ video slot game.

This is a five reel game that has 25 fixed paylines and you can play it from between £0.10 and £100. That’s a pretty good range so just choose a level that you feel entirely comfortable with. Perhaps bet low to start and then slowly increase your stake as the wins come in.

As you might have guessed this game is set in a barber shop with a variety of different customers that make up the symbols for the game. It’s like gazing at the short list for the World Moustache Championships (there actually is one apparently). Some have short hair, others have beards. There’s also a cut-throat razor and shaving cream. The bonus symbol here is the barber shop sign and more about the key part that plays in this game in just a moment. If you can get five of the bearded guy you can win 40x your stake for that spin.

There’s a distinctly cartoonish feel to the symbols in the game and they’re certainly full of fun though I do find myself thinking of potato heads. At least there’s no desire to pad the reels out with card symbols.

When you do get a winning combination in normal play, there’s the chance to get another win straight away. Some shaving foam gets spread over the screen and the symbols that just earned you a win are held in place. Also all those bearded symbols are suddenly clean shaven and not a single bit of paper on a little cut so they must really have some talented barbers there. You’re then given a free spin that could see your win increased.

Simply press the first button down the bottom of the screen to enter a page that allows you to easily set your stake and learn more about the paytable and the rules to the game. You can also set up to 1000 automated spins if you need some time away from the screen or just get fed up of keeping having to press the spin button. If you can get some free games to build some experience of playing, then that’s a great idea.

Bonus Games

Five of the barber shop bonus symbols anywhere on the reels earn you ten free spins. While you’re using those you can get more because each time the bonus symbol appears that’s two more free spins awarded and if you’re really lucky you could end up with as many as 30 free spins. Each of the free spins you receive will increase the multiplier that can be seen underneath the reels and this can go up to 5x.

It isn’t over when the last of your free spins is used up. Now it’s time for an ‘Inwinity’ spin which will keep the reels spinning until a winning combination is achieved.


This is a rather simple game from Thunderkick who are based in Sweden and produce some really fun games. Barbershop fits that bill and with an entertaining bonus game and the Inwinity feature you can certainly get some good wins.
