The Old West is calling and this time you will be off on a wild train heist, led by audacious desperados from the Sticky Bandits video slot powered by Quickspin. The thrilling, 5-reel, 30-payline slot benefits from Massive Wild symbols that can turn up to two reels fully wild and the Free Spins feature enhanced with sticky Wilds that will provide you with 7 free spins. To set the reels in motion, bet anywhere between $0.15 and up to $90 per spin and enjoy the fast-paced maneuver that will send chills down your spine to rack up some serious winnings.
Visually speaking, it is evident that Quickspin have a brilliant balance between design, special features and audio, envisioned to appeal to the majority of players today. The reels are set against a typical desert landscape of the Wild West, featuring cacti, rock stacks and a railway line. The top, the reel set is framed with a pair of rifles to highlight the ominous air of the overall surrounding. The music score completes the theme, building the suspense even further.
On the reels, you will come across three dodgy criminals, where the female bandit is the most lucrative symbol awarding 200 coins for aligning five of them on a payline. The two male villains act as both Massive Wilds and Bonus symbols, therefore, they can substitute for all other icons to form a winning combination. They are two reels wide, so once they appear, you are sure to be in for a treat. The rest of the positions are filled with sticks of dynamite, a bag of gold coins and Western-style playing card icons, which constitute the low-value symbols on the reels.
Sticky Bandits slot machine revolves around the Free Spins Bonus feature that is triggered when a Wild symbol lands on the second and fourth reel and the train Bonus symbols hits the first reel granting 7 free games. The good news is that Wilds already in place will remain stuck in their positions for the duration of the feature. So, if you have Wilds fully covering the second and third reel, the massive symbols will remain frozen for all free games. What's more, any additional Wilds that hit during the feature, will also be frozen in their place, to substantially boost your winning power. Unfortunately, there are no bonus icons popping up during the free spins, so you cannot re-trigger more spins.
Just like the majority of most recent Quickspin titles, the Western-themed release introduces the innovative Achievements Engine, generating various tasks for punters to complete in exchange for tokens which may be cashed in in order to unlock the in-game bonus features awarding extra free spins.
It goes without saying that the Free Spins round is where the hefty wins will lurk thanks to sticky Wilds and stacked symbols which are the biggest draw of the Western-themed game. Sticky Bandits is a medium to high variance offering with an average return to player (RTP) of 96.58% and the maximum possible payout of 739x the stake. If you are keen on adrenaline-fueled slot machines devoid of bells and whistles when it comes to bonus features, then the Quickspin 2017 release will serve the purpose, and, hopefully, provide you with some sizeable cash rewards.
