The sights, the sounds and of course some very interesting bonus modes makes Quickspin’s Sticky Bandits 3D slots a must. It contains 30 paylines, 5 reels and pays a non-progressive jackpot of 500 coins (768x your stake). Players into slot games with Wild West themes can sink their spurs into this one. The theme is about a bunch of desperadoes out to rob a train.
The bonus features in this spaghetti western slots are those massive wilds that can turn 2 reels fully wild and a free spins feature that awards 7 free spins. Players can start spinning the reels from 15 pence up to £90 per spin. Volatility wise it’s a medium to high variance game with a RTP (return to player percentage) of 96.58%.
From an aesthetic point of view Sticky Bandits is a crisp, colourful and vibrant affair, you’ll even see 2 six shooters (guns) above the reels which looks pretty cool. Symbols on the reels are cards from J to Ace, bags filled with gold coins, dynamite sticks, the crooked desperadoes and the female bandit. The latter symbol is also the highest paying symbol, hit 5 of her at the maximum wager and you’ll pocket 200 coins.
Since it’s a medium to high variance slots it’s best to play Sticky Bandits with a bankroll of at least £150. After all you want a bite at that cherry! A small budget is not enough to unlock the game’s bonus features because this is where the big wins lurk.
Depending on the size of your bankroll we find that Quickspin slots pays relatively well if your average bet per spin is £5 and above. If you intend on playing the slots for a long session use the Auto Play feature, it spins the reels automatically for you up to 1,000 times.
In terms of bonus games those massive wilds and the free spins feature is responsible for all the gun slinging action. When the wilds pitch they substitute all the other symbols on the reels. When the massive wild symbols appear not only are they 2 reels wide but they take over 2 entire reels! The bonus symbol is the train which only appears on the first reel. No specific cash prizes are paid by the bonus symbols and wilds.
Like the majority of the medium to high variance slots out there, Sticky Bandits pays special attention to its free spins feature and rightfully so. The free spins bonus mode is triggered when the Bonus symbol (train) along with a wild appears on reels 2 or 4-7 free spins will be given. However, there’s also an interesting game mechanic at play here.
When the free spins feature is initiated the wilds will remain locked on the reels for the duration of the free spins. For instance, if the free spins is played when the wilds appeared on reels 2 and 3 they’ll stick to the reels until the feature ends. It gets better, should additional wilds pitch they’ll stick to the reels as well.
Will Sticky Bandits live up to the hype? We certainly think so since we’ve become quite the fans of slot games with sticky wilds especially when they pop during the free spins feature. Essentially the big wins come from those 2 massive wilds, anything less on the reels might be disappointing. Another good offering from Quickspin we firmly believe that it will give NetEnt’s Dead or Alive a run for its money.
