Take a trip to the Wild West and join a band of railroad-robbing brigands in Sticky Bandits. Powered by Quickspin, it’s a superbly designed 5 reel, 5 row, 30 payline video slot that comes with giant symbols that can turn up to 10 positions wild as well as a free spins round where the wilds are sticky. Play from 15p to £90 per spin.
Quickspin has come up trumps once again as far as design is concerned as Sticky Bandits is a cracking looking game. A desert canyon forms the backdrop to the reels which are flanked by a railway line, rocks and cactuses. You’ll see lower value playing cards spinning around those reels alongside bags of swag and a gang of outlaws.
The best of the gang are the 2 wilds. The robber with the red neckerchief can land on reels 2 and 3 and the bandit with the revolver lands on reels 4 and 5. Both of these characters can land in part or fully cover those reels. A full stack of either turns a whopping 10 symbols positions into wilds. There’s only one bonus feature on offer in Sticky Bandits – it has the potential to be a cracker though.
It’s a Free Spins Bonus feature that’s triggered by landing the train bonus symbol on the same spin as a giant wild. You’ll then get 7 free spins. Every wild that lands during the feature will be locked in place for the remainder of the free spins. Land a fully stacked giant wild symbol here and the results can be lucrative indeed. If you land the wilds fully on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, prepare yourself for staggering results.
The Wild West, outlaw theme promises plenty of action and Sticky Bandits delivers that. The range of extras isn’t particularly wide but the giant wilds can live up to their name and have a giant impact. The number of free spins on offer in the feature isn’t large but the frozen wilds can quickly deliver. This is a volatile game with maximum wins of up to 3,000 times your total bet on each free spin!
As usual for a Quickspin video slot, we have no gripes as far as design is concerned. The imagery is well drawn and the spaghetti western style soundtrack is a perfect match. Movie westerns have fallen out of fashion with modern day audiences – Sticky Bandits shows that there’s still life in this genre, in the slots world at least. You can also try Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist by NetEnt which has the same theme.
