Sticky Bandits is a Wild West themed video slot from Quickspin, so great for any players who like the idea of an immersive visit to take on some real old fashioned bandits. There are 30 paylines, which gives more chances to win than some other video slots. One of the most exciting elements of this game are the giant wilds, who stay put throughout the free spins round. The graphics are well designed and all keep to the theme, and the RTP is around 96.5%.
It’s really easy to play Sticky Bandits, especially if you’re used to 5 reel video slots. The board is full of symbols, from letters and people, to images of trains and money. Your goal is to get matches on the same lines of three or more symbols. The higher value the symbol, the more your winnings will be. Simply choose your bet, which can range from 0.20 all the way to 100. Then spin the reels. You can choose Autoplay to set a number of spins to roll without the need to click each time.
The bandits can substitute for any other symbols in the game, and also expand to be massive wilds. If you hit the bonus symbol of the train, you will trigger free spins, and the wilds are sticky-which means they remain in place throughout.
The jackpot is not progressive here, and there isn’t a fancy bonus game or any multipliers to up your winnings either. It would be great to see those added to the game, to help with playability and excitement. But to be fair, there are still some chances for a pretty good bag of loot of your own, if you take on these bandits and win.
Sticky Bandits is a medium to high volatility slot game. The way to get the max win is during the free spins round. The max winnings can be as much as 740x your stake, which would make any player shout ‘yeehaw!’
There is no bonus game to speak of here, so the main element to cross your fingers for is the free spins round. This can be triggered by getting the bonus scatter symbol of the old locomotive in the first reel, and then finding the wild symbols on either reel 2 or reel 4. This will automatically trigger 7 free spins. Whichever wild symbol you uncovered to launch the free spins will remain in place throughout the free spins. Not only that, but if any new wilds are found during the free spins, these also become sticky and remain where they are to help up your winnings.
The Wild West is something we all have a picture in our minds of, swinging saloon doors, cowboys on horses, and gunfights and duels at dawn. So we were hoping not to be disappointed when we opened Sticky Bandits, and we certainly weren’t! The background is of a rusty old canyon with train tracks and desert background, you can almost feel the sand on your skin and hear the clicking of guns being cocked.
The music is what you would imagine when you think Wild West as well, and is a fitting background to the spins of the slot machine. The bandits look fierce, the train looks fast, and that gold sure looks tempting!
As well as the high value symbols, there are a few letters which count as lower value symbols. These are all in the same wild west font to keep all the graphics seamless.
The highlight of Sticky Bandits is the free spins game, which you can trigger with a lucky spin on three wheels. Even without a bonus game, the free spins is a fun touch. We would love to see some extra bonus features such as multipliers here, to really up the winnings, although 740x your stake is not too shabby!
If you’re a fan of the Wild Wild West, then this is absolutely a Quickspin game you need to try. Just remember to be quick off the mark about it!
