Barber Shop Uncut a Re-Designed Locking Reels Slot From Thunderkick Released.
Casumo Casino has a stack of new online slots to be added to their casino during June including a massive selection of SGi slots (WMS, Bally, Barcrest), the brand new ELK Studios retro-themed Ivanhoe along with a re-release from Thunderkick in the form of Barber Shop Uncut.
Barber Shop Uncut Slot – Base Gameplay
The new “Uncut” version of Barber Shop is much like its predecessor in terms of design with a few minor tweaks to the gameplay mainly in the free spins round and the multipliers.
For players that missed this slot the first time round you can expect features such as “Locking Win Re-Spins” and “Inwinity Spin“, if you are familiar with the Jackhammer series of slots from NetEnt then the same basic mechanics apply here.
Barber Shop Uncut uses a 5×3 design with 15 independent reels and 40 fixed paylines, when any 3 of a kind or more wins are created on the reels these symbols become held in place and the remaining reels then re-spin, any additional symbols that create more wins are then frozen in place and this feature repeats until no new wins are formed.
Along with this interesting feature, there is also a free spins round on offer that is triggered by landing 5 or more of the special Barber Shop Scatter symbols on the reels, again if 3 or more of these land on the reels the re-spin feature also kicks in, giving you further chances to get additional scatters.

Barber Shop Slot – Bonus Features
The main bonus round is triggered by landing 5 or more of the special Barber Shop Scatter symbols on the reels granting an initial 12 free spins, additional symbols that land during any re-spins will grant 2 extra free spins up to the maximum of 30.
The biggest change to Barber Shop is with the Multipliers, in the old version, successive wins (re-spins) raised the multiplier value which could climb to huge amounts, in the new versions the multiplier is fixed at 3x for all of the free spins.
At the end of the bonus round a special Inwinity Spin is granted, these reels will keep spinning at the end of the bonus round until at least 1 more win is awarded, guaranteeing you won’t end up with a bonus round that pays zero.
In essence, the same base game mechanic is on offer and with Locking Win Re-Spins along with a 3x Multiplier applied.
Barber Shop Uncut Slot
If you have played the original Barber Shop slot then there is very little new on offer here with some minor changes to the multipliers in the bonus round, if you missed this slot the first time around then it’s definitely worth checking out for the visuals, slick theme, and nice bonus features.
Whilst the slot comes with a quite generous 97% RTP the variance is also quite high, so can you expect bonus round wins to range from anywhere from 1-2x stake to well over 1000x.
