Though you might be thinking this Bars & Stripes slot is a classic 3 reeler, with the name implying just that, it’s actually just a step up from that, with a fun, if corny, slot theme keeping you entertained.
Take me out to the ball game… Ok we know this mobile game is actually around the theme of American Football, rather than baseball, but in one sentence we’ve managed to describe the whole feel of this slot game.
With hot dogs, beer, Oreos, the bald eagle and the read white and blue splashed all over the screen, Bars & Stripes is as American as high tea and crumpets are British. And that is to say, a complete cliché and completely removed of the real American way of life.
That’s ok, we shall take this Thanks-Giving on steroids and still enjoy the simple spins it has to offer in this 5 reels, 25 payline mobile slot machine.
It is, in fact, incredibly simple, with a wild symbol that doubles any wins (very useful) and wins you 5,000 coins for five in a row (oh so useful… if you can win it). No free spins here, so you’ll have to make do with scatters that pay up to 200x your bet for five.
If you think that’s ok, but not a huge amount… then clearly you’re an experienced slot player looking for a game with a little more finesse. The Bars & Stripes video slot is no such game, we recommend you play Mega Fortune Dreams or Medusa II as alternatives.
Because even the top prize of 47,500 coins on the click me feature, when calculated, only amounts to 190x your bet. Which is ok but hardly enough to get you skipping all the way to the bank.
More toddlers American Football than the real hard knock game, Bars & Stripes is great for casual slot players who are just starting out in the world of video slots.
There’s not a lot of bonus features, but the bonus features that are here come around frequently (10 to 50 spins?). Add the doubling wild meaning you can occasionally get some real nice 5 of a kind wins and you can see why this mobile slot game would appeal to starter gamblers. It also has a really amazing betting limit, from 0.25 to 250 a spin, meaning you can change your bet level nicely depending on whether you are going up or down.
No you won’t walk away from this rich. But you’ll watch a good sport and walk away entertained and with your budget, if not huge, then with a good 10% to 20% on top.
That’s about as much as you can expect from this Microgaming slot, so once you are there, better find something with a little more risk and a bigger pay off like the Jungle Jim slot also from Microgaming.

Wilds: The Bars & Stripes slot logo is the wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols except scatters and the bonus hat symbol. It comes with a 2x multiplier which is always a nice bonus.
Scatters: The American Football ball is the scatter and pays any which way they show up on screen. 3 will get you 2x your bet, 4 will be 20x your bet and 5 is the top POTUS prize of 200x your bet.
Click Me Feature: Get three hats anywhere on the screen and you'll have to pick your one of the three. Hidden amongst these hats is a potential 190x your bet win, but on average you are lucky to get 2x to 5x your bet. A really good win is about 35x to 40x your bet.
So not very hard hitting, but hits frequently, giving you a little rush as you think... oooh why didn't I click on that hat with the bigger prize!
This isn't one of the best Microgaming slots in the world, but then again, it doesn't have to be. It just has to appeal to those players who want a little slice of Americana and aren't big into risk.
Once you feel you've gotten everything you can from Bars & Stripes mobile slot, we fully recommend you try out the similar themed, but more volatile, Spring Break slot.
