Join us in the Old Wild West as we prepare for a great train robbery with the cast of Sticky Bandits.
Sticky Bandits is a five-reel online slot by Quickspin that, despite not using a completely unique theme, is an excellent all-round entertainer thanks to its thrilling special features.
Quickspin is a renowned software provider whose online slot games can be found at many online casinos and bingo sites. Its most popular titles include Goldilocks and the Wild Bears, Spinions Beach Party, Gold Lab, The Wild Chase, Sakura Fortune, Crystal Queen, and Second Strike.
And, if you enjoy heist-themed games like Sticky Bandits, we think you’ll also love the Action Bank online slot by Barcrest, in which you get to try and break into a bank vault to win prizes of up to five hundred times your bet!
As you join the stake-out in Quickspin’s Sticky Bandits, you get to benefit from not just ordinary wild symbols that can help you win cash by substituting for other symbols, but all two massive wild symbols that can appear on four of the five reels. Plus, when the train arrives at the same time that a wild symbol is in view, you gain entry to the Free Spins Bonus where locked wilds can help you loot even more cash rewards.
You can join the action with bets of between 15p and £90, and if you’re lucky, you’ll get to make off with a top payout of 66,510 coins!
Rather than using a traditional Spaghetti Western soundtrack, the Sticky Bandits online slot features more modern and yet still Wild West-sounding music that adds the already dramatic atmosphere while you’re playing the game.
As the slot is based on a train robbery, the background features a mountainous background which is turned to gold by the rays of the summer sun, and on the left-hand side, you can see the railway line running along through a gorge towards the mountains in the distance.
The game comes with five reels and thirty fixed paylines, but what makes it more usual than most online slot games it that it uses five rows of symbols as opposed to the expected three or four. This means that you’re more likely to obtain wins with each spin that you take. And, because all of the symbols can appear stacked on all five reels, there’s the potential to haul in huge sums of cash by landing full or partial adjacent stacks of matching symbols.
The paytable symbols in Sticky Bandits include four gunmen, a female, a steam train, a stick of dynamite, a big bag of money, and four playing card symbols (A, K, Q, and J).
The game controls are situated beneath the reel set. The icon featuring three white horizontal lines loads the paytable while the cog icon beneath it gives you access to sound and other game settings. The arrows beside the Total Bet box can be clicked to adjust the size of your stake to between 15p and £90. On the far-right, you have the Spin button next to the Auto Play button, the latter of which lets you configure the game to take 10 to 1,000 spins automatically.
In the Sticky Bandits online slot, the two men represent the wild symbols. One of them is wearing black gloves and a long tan trenchcoat while the other wears blue jeans and a Stetson and is armed with a rifle. As there are two wild symbols rather than just one, your winning potential is instantly increased. But, to add to the excitement of the gameplay, both wilds can appear partially or fully stacked on the reels where they can substitute for any other symbol to help you create winning combinations.
The Sticky Bandits online slot keeps things simple by using the same symbol for its wild and scatter symbol. However, as we’ve just mentioned, there are two wild symbols and, therefore, your chances of triggering the bonus feature are vastly improved. You need at least one wild and one Bonus symbol to activate the Free Spins Feature. The Bonus symbol is the image of a train.
To activate the Free Spins Bonus in Sticky Bandits, you must land a Train Bonus symbol anywhere on the first reel on the same spin that a wild symbol is present on either the second or fourth reel.
The feature gives you seven free games and cannot be retriggered. However, the exciting news is that any wild symbols (N.B., partial or full) that appear during the bonus game remain wild for the duration of the feature and they also become locked on the reels for all of your free spins. This means that each time that a winning combination is created, you have the chance to keep adding to its value by spinning more locked wilds or matching symbols.
