Join the sleek Bandida and watch her progress from a rookie to the most wanted female outlaw on the slot from Leander Games. The cyborg-like feisty bandida is on the run from the relentless sheriff as she prowls the streets for her next heist. Her reel escape is aided by the Bandida’s Way and Criminal Record features as well as a Jail Break free spins round. The hunt enters its grand finale with a progressive jackpot that is guaranteed to trigger before it reaches 22,090 credits.
Bandida is a medium-variance video slot with five reels, three rows and 20 fixed pay lines. Bet sizes range from 0.20 to 40 coins. The RTP is set at 96.01% from which 3% is attributed to the progressive jackpot. The game is in HTML5 format, making it available on desktop and mobile devices.
The win potential in standard play hovers around 500 times the stake. Not overly exciting but the maximum overall win potential is the current amount on the progressive jackpot which starts at a minimum value of 10,000 credits.
The slot design is a mix of typical wild west and futuristic elements. The scene from a desert town of the era with a saloon and a cactus form the backdrop to a frameless game window. On top of the window are two displays, one for a localized progressive jackpot and a progress bar for the Criminal Record feature. The soundtrack is a fusion of a relaxing acoustic piece and robotic reel noises.
The regular pay symbols are Js through to As as well as gold coins, gold bars and a red gem. The bandida and the sheriff, which can expand to cover the entire reel, plus the wild symbol are the premium symbols on the slot. Lining up five on a line will pay 2.5 to 25x the stake. The wild is a futuristic-looking handgun. There are no scatters on this slot as the game is using a different mechanic to trigger the free spins. A most wanted poster landing on any reel will add to the counter on the progress bar.
The Bandida’s Way Feature
Your excitement on the reels will start with the Bandida’s Way feature. It is triggered when three bandida symbols land stacked on reel one. All coin, gold bar and red gem symbols transform into bandida symbols and a new payout evaluation is made before wins are awarded.
The Criminal Record Feature
The Criminal Record progress bar promises the next moment for some reel excitement. The bandida starts her outlaw journey as a rookie and climbs the criminal record ladder to become the most wanted female outlaw. A counter on top of the game window indicates the progress, which increases by one every time a most wanted poster symbol lands on the reels.
On reaching 34 symbols, the bandida will be upgraded to pickpocket and the Bandida Way feature is awarded. You will need 102 symbols to progress her to robber at which point the same feature is awarded but with an x2 multiplier. The bandida will become the ‘most wanted” after 260 collected symbols. Once the level is reached both, the Bandida Way and the Jailbreak free spins features are triggered, and the counter reset to zero. The advance on the progress bar is saved individually for each bet size.
The Jail Break Free Spins
Triggering the Bandida’s Way feature and hitting a full stack of sheriff symbols on reel five in one spin will activate 10 free spins. The bandida will now be locked behind bars and your aim is to free her as quickly as possible. Her sentence has been set for nine years, decreasing by one year after each free spin and setting her free only on the last spin. But you can land bail scatters which will lead to an early release once 10 are accumulated. After her release, she will remain fully stacked on reel one and the Bandida’s Way feature will be active for the remaining spins. Hence, freeing her early will make quite a difference to the total payout from the free spins.
The Must Go Bank Vault Jackpot
Get ready for the big money moment on Bandida. The progressive jackpot has a starting value of 10,000 credits and is guaranteed to trigger before it reaches the ceiling value of 22,090 credits. The jackpot can be randomly won after every spin. The higher the bet, the bigger the chances to win it. All bets on the game contribute 1% to 3% to the jackpot, based on the bet level. Once the jackpot was hit, it will reset to the starting seed.
Did we help the bandida escape or did we tip-off the sheriff? Honestly said, we rooted for the bandida as setting her free from the jail early gave us the best wins in the bonus round. Having multiple free spins with her feature active is almost a guarantee for a big win on every spin.
