Sticky Bandits Slot Machine
Sticky Bandits has a relatively common theme, revolving around Western style characters and also one where the Wild West’s bandits are the heroes, which is the bit that is somewhat surprising. The slot is available at casinos that include Quickspin titles in their collection. The slot machine has 5 reels, forms 30 winning combinations on the same number of lines, and it is capable of rewarding you with up to $600. There are some things that make it special, such as its heavy use of massive wild symbols which act as bonuses. Free spins with locked wilds are apparently provided as well.
Betting and Prizes
For a game with 30 active lines, Sticky Bandits chose to offer a wager range that starts at $0.15 and ends up at a maximum value of $90. You will be allowed to spend up to $3 for each active line.
With a top reward of $600, we can easily calculate that we’re being offered a multiple of the line bet of just 200x. It’s the type of game where you can expect to get paid often, but in lower amounts, but the average RTP is still very good, being announced at 96.58%.
Sticky Bandits Slot Features
As I’ve said before, one of the things that are different about this slot machine is the way in which it uses its wild symbols. These are Massive Wilds actually, which not only act as substitutes, but also as bonus symbols. Since there are no other feature symbols on the same reels as them, these Sticky Bandit Wilds are substitutes for all symbols, the aim being to form new combinations. You have one of the Sticky Bandits on the reels 2 and 3, while the second one appears on the reels 4 and 5. Each of these two wilds occupies 2 reels of 5 symbols each, so it can give you up to 10 individual wild positions at the same time.
A lot of symbols in this game will come in stacked, though in varying sizes apparently, so you have the potential of triggering huge wins thanks to them, if everything lines up properly.
The game relies on free spins as well, but they’re not triggered quite like they are in other slots. You need a Train Bonus symbol on the 1st reel, the only one where it shows up, while at the same time you get a wild symbol present on one of the other reels (either massive wild can appear, it doesn’t matter which). You are getting 7 free spins from this particular feature, with existing wild symbols being locked in place until the feature is done. New wild symbols that appear during the free spins are also locked in the positions in which they land.
Theme & Design
The game uses a Wild West inspired theme, and so the setting that was chosen for it is that of the North American prairie. You have a desert like environment, with cactus plants, with large rock formations and a lot of open ground, but also with a railroad track to the side. Among the symbols that were used here you will find the two sticky bandits as the massive wilds, along with other characters, both men and women. Other symbols picked for its reels include money bags, dynamite charges and four Royal cards.
Sticky Bandits has plenty to offer, even if you’re not a big fan of the whole Western genre. The features are special and quite rare among new slot machines, so they have their own attraction.
