The Fourth of July is when the United States celebrates Independence Day. There is a fantastic slot game from Microgaming that is perfect for the occasion. The problem is that the game is not available to players in the United States. However, elsewhere in the world players at online casinos like Royal Vegas, All Slots and 32Red can experience the fireworks.

The American flag is known as the Stars & Stripes, and Bars & Stripes is an obvious reference to that. In the slot machine you will find plenty of instances of the American flag. The high paying symbols on the reels are the American eagle, the Statue of Liberty, the American flag, 7 and gold bars. In keeping with the theme, the low paying symbols are popular American food items like Thanksgiving turkey, pumpkin pie, burger and fries, hot dog, beer and cookie. Bars & Stripes is a fairly old slot machine so the artwork is simple, but bold and colourful. There are no win animations.

The Bars & Stripes logo is the wild symbol with a 2x multiplier property. It substitutes for all symbols except the scatter and bonus symbols. It also awards the highest line payouts. The football is the scatter symbol. This is a nice touch, although coincidental, with the football World Cup in progress. The football awards payouts multiplied by the total bet when two or more appear anywhere on the reels. Uncle Sam’s top hat is the bonus symbol. It triggers a pick an object bonus game when the three or more of these symbols land anywhere on the reels. You pick one of the symbols for a bonus payout.

One of the attractions of Bars & Stripes is that it has high variance, especially for aggressive slots players. Five wild symbols in an active payline pay 5,000 times the line bet and four wild symbols pay 1,000 times the line bet. The next highest payout is only 600 times the line bet for five American eagles. Bars & Stripes has 25 selectable paylines. However, it is standard online slots strategy that you should play with all the paylines enabled. You can wager up to 10 coins per payline, with the coin size ranging from $0.01 to $1.00. The maximum total bet per spin works out to $250. This will bring in the high rollers at Microgaming online casinos.
