Sticky Bandits: Wild Return
We had our fair share of Wild West-themed slots for 2019 already. If we crunch the numbers, casino games like NetEnt’s Dead or Alive 2, and Betsoft’s Gold Canyon deserve all the hype. Sticky Bandits: Wild Return is the sequel to Quickspin’s popular Sticky Wild .
The genre has not only been well presented on television and in Hollywood movies but now in online slot machines too. What can players expect in the return of Quickspin’s gunslinger sequel? Giddy up folks… let’s ride!
Sticky Bandits: Wild Return utilises a 40-payline, 5-reel, 4-row structure and it offers a maximum jackpot win (non-progressive) of 1,145x (£114,500) your stake. It gallops into the sunset with a Lucky Shot Free Spins with mega symbols and a mini-game Quick Slots Bonus. This Western slot game can now be played at our instant cash-out Canadian Mobile Casinos from £0.40 to £100 per spin.
Graphically the game holds its own against the rest of the pack. Symbols on the reels are card suits from J to A, whiskey glasses, boxes of cigars, wild, skull scatters, 3 gunslingers (old man with a colt, a dark-haired outlaw with a shotgun) including calamity Jane with two golden colt revolvers. The latter are the premium symbols, when 5 of them pitch, the payout will be 10x your stake. A key feature about the premium symbols, and the wild is that they are huge (2×2, 3×3 positions) and they are stacked.
Sticky Bandits: Wild Return has a theoretical return to player percentage (RTP) of 96.22% or House Edge of 3.78%.
The wild completes winning combinations when it replaces symbols adjacent to it, and it appears stacked.
Quick Slots Bonus
The Quick Slot Bonus is played when the Quick Slot Bonus symbol pops up on the 5th reel. The reel set changes to a one-armed bandit slot showcasing 4 symbols (horseshoes, bars, cherries, and lucky sevens). You’ll win 500x your stake when 3 lucky sevens appear.
Lucky Shot Free Spins
Just like the majority of all the high-paying slots, the Lucky Shot Free Spins feature is initiated by 3 skull scatters. Once triggered, 7 free spins are awarded, the bonus round also benefits from sticky wilds. Remember the gunslinger symbols? When a gunslinger symbol pops up, a shot is fired and if it hits any other gunslinger symbol, 2×2 or 3×3 symbol; symbols are transformed into sticky wilds.
Sticky Bandits: Wild Return has quite a brutal heart with a lot of grime under its fingernails. The graphics are suitably gorgeous, which gives the slots that distinct old western style look. Compared to its predecessor, the visual fidelity and the payouts are superior. It is a high-volatility game that pays as much as £114,500 on a single free spin; meaning that it could very well be our next go-to slots. Furthermore, it kicks up a lot of old-west dust with a blistering-powder keg of bonus rounds! All the elements, along with a cracking audio score, makes it worth locking, loading, and saddling up for.
Which bonus round pays the biggest win?
The free spins round is the most profitable because this is where the jackpot of 1,114x your stake is won. The bonus round is juiced up with sticky wilds and colossal symbols. The volatility is steep, so expect a bunch of dry spins, and it will take approximately 150 spins to get into the free spins feature. New depositors receive an exclusive deposit bonus just for galloping into town.
