No fuss, no frills – just cash prizes and good old-fashioned nudges, holds and free spins in this ultimate fan-favourite slot.



Bar X is about as timeless as a slot can get, and we don’t doubt you’ll have fun getting back to basics and scooping up cash rewards while you’re at it on this much loved 3-reel slot. This retro slot from our collection of online slots and games has been going for over 4 decades. Take a spin to find out why! Play Bar X online now.

The base game has 1 payline. Bear in mind that after every straight win, you may be awarded up to 2 free spins. When you lose, meanwhile, keep your fingers crossed for the Nudge Feature – 3 can be awarded at random after any losing game. And if you don’t luck out on that, well, there’s the Hold After Losing Nudge Feature too, where pressing the ‘Tick’ will spin the reels to a guaranteed win!

How To Play

For information on symbols and base game instructions, please see in-game help menu.

Sequences of Wins
Up to 3 wins may be awarded in each game by way of ‘Hold on Win’ or a ‘Free Spin’.
Each win is added to the ‘Collect Bank’ display and at the end of the game, the total is transferred to the account balance and the game is over.
No stake is taken for a second or third win in a sequence. Only the initial bet value is taken at the start of the game.

Hold on Win
1 or 2 holds may randomly be offered after a nudged or straight in win and 1 hold may randomly be offered after a ‘Hold After Losing Nudge’ win. Pressing the ‘Tick’ button will hold any un-held reels and continue the game.

Free Spin
1 or 2 free spins may randomly be offered after a straight-in win. Pressing the ‘Tick’ button will spin the reels to a repeat of the initial win.

Nudge Feature
3 Nudges can be randomly awarded at the end of any losing game. Pressing the flashing nudge buttons will nudge the reels forward by one symbol per nudge. Pressing the ‘Tick’ button will automatically complete the nudges. When in auto-play, the nudges are processed automatically. If a win is missed, the auto-play will rewind and automatically nudge the best combination. Up to 2 holds may be offered (in the same game) on any win obtained from nudges.

Hold After Losing Nudge Feature
This can be offered at random after losing Nudges. The ‘Hold’ and ‘Cancel’ buttons flash. The Holds may be pressed, but this is purely cosmetic as the reels must be un-held to continue. Pressing the ‘Tick’ button will cancel any lit hold buttons and spin the reels. The reels will spin to a guaranteed random win. There is no link between the symbols nudged to the win line during the nudges and the resulting win. 1 hold may be offered on the win (in the same game).
