Join the two desperados as they are about to rob a runaway train on the 2017 slot from Quickspin. A high-volatility rollercoaster awaits on a 5×5 reel set with giant bandit wilds which turn sticky in the bonus round for wins of up to 200 times your bet on a single spin and up to 739 times in the free spins.
Sticky Bandits is a video slot with five reels, five rows and 30 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. You can join the gang on desktop or mobile devices from 0.15 to 90 credits per spin. Highly volatile, the game comes with an RTP of 96.58%, which should ensure that balances are not simply robbed by the bandits.
Set in a cacti-strewn canyon in the Wild West with a train track meandering its way through the dry, rugged grounds, the game window impresses with some stunning graphics and animations. The two bandits appear in full reel height and across two reels to act as wild and bonus symbols. A spaghetti western soundtrack accompanies the action on the reels. Yeehaw!
The pay symbols are intricately designed, starting at the low end with the card royals J, Q, K and A written in the typical style of the era. They award wins from 1x to 1.33x your stake for a single five of a kind. They are followed by dynamites bundles, money bags, two cowboys and a cowgirl. Pays for a five of a kind range from 2x to 6.66x your bet. All pay symbols can appear in superstacks.
The engine of the runaway train is the bonus symbol, appearing on reel one only. The two bandits are the bonus wild symbols, both appearing in a 2×5 mega size, one covering reels two and three and the second reels four and five. They substitute for all regular pay symbols and will also trigger the bonus round when they land together or in combination with the bonus symbol.
Sticky Bandits Slot Features
The game has only one feature, but that can pack quite a punch due to the sticky wilds. You will trigger seven free spins when you land a bonus symbol on reel one together with one or both bonus bandit wild symbols on the back reels. The wilds can be in partial or full view. The triggering bandit wilds and any further landing during the feature will turn into sticky wilds for the entire round. The best moment to hit full screens of pay symbols. Unfortunately, the free spins cannot be retriggered.
Did we join the gang of outlaws after spinning the reels on Sticky Bandits? Not quite but we enjoyed riding along for some sessions as the game is entertaining and has good win potential in the base game and free spins. However, the high volatility and superstacked symbols can lead to longer dry periods of losing spins which is natural for this kind of slot but can put you off, especially when you are on a low budget.
