Fans of quality Scandinavian slots and epic Quentin Tarantino films unite.
Sticky Bandits is the first Western themed Quickspin slot. Features NetEnt-like mind-blowing sound effects like the almighty Jungle Spirit. Has 30 lines with super stacked symbols and one of the best probabilities of winning over 100x your total bet (like Second Strike). But more importantly, it will leave you in awe with two Massive Wilds.
The Sticky Bandits mobile slot is already out from 15th August 2017, at recommended Quickspin casinos like SlotsMillion (who also host Quickspin slot tourneys), as well as new ones like Joreels and Larry.
But the game with a Spaghetti Western track and train-heist villains isn’t for everyone.
While it also has an impressive RTP of 96.58%, it’s pretty high risk and what you can get in return is a maximum of 739x your total bet. That’s even less than the Goldilocks and the Wild Bears re-release, which you can read all about in the review following the link.
For comparison, the June-released Wins of Fortune has the studio’s second highest jackpot to date worth 2,757x your bet.
Nevertheless, there’s a good chance you’ll like it more than NetEnt’s Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist for the reasons you’ll find in the full Sticky Bandits review below.
But can it beat the hell out of Dead or Alive?
Check out the official video trailer for a quick reference too.
Massive Wild Symbols – Boost Wins with HUGE Stacked Wilds on Reels 2 – 5 (Including Base Game)
This is a feature to die for.
There are no progressive multipliers, picking bonuses, cascading symbols or re-spins in the Sticky Bandits slot, but 2x Massive Wild icons on reels 2 and 3, plus 4 and 5.
These two bad boys take up two reels at once and appear among the 9 (super)stacked standard symbols that are valued at up to 6.7x the total bet.
However, substitutions don’t have a coin value to boost our wins any further.
And while it’s not the first time we see massive symbols in a Quickspin slot, they will surely put a smile on your face on a good day.
Looking for more features like this?
That said, there’s one more reason you’ll need them – Free Spins.
Sticky Bandits Free Spins Bonus – Win 7 Free Games with Bonus and Massive Wild Symbols
The 30-line game has no Scatters, but it has one powerful Bonus symbol.
To help you rob the runaway train in the Wild West-style bonus, you need just 1x Bonus symbol and 1x or 2x Massive Wild symbols, which also act as Bonuses (like in Sakura Fortune).
For that, you’ll get 7 Free Spins, which cannot be re-triggered in any way as the free games are played without the Bonus icon altogether.
But that’s okay since the freebies have a good surprise – sticky wilds.
Massive Sticky Bonus Wilds – All Wild Symbols in Free Spins Lock for Maximum Prizes
The Sticky Wilds in NetEnt’s iconic Old West slot Dead or Alive are everyone’s favourite.
However, Quickspin decided to take it to the next stage with Massive Sticky Wilds, which only stick in the bonus.
This means both the Massive Wilds that activate the free games and any new ones that appear during the spins (on reels 2 – 5) freeze and lock into place until the very end.
To convert all 7 free spins into Epic Wins, start it with as many Massive Wilds as possible. And yes, if you get the bonus with 2 fully expanded Massive Wilds, they’ll stay there for 7 free games and guarantee mega wins one round after another.
But don’t be surprised if that doesn’t happen. After all the Sticky Bandits online slot has of the highest volatilities of all Quickspin slots. For comparison, it’s just a tad riskier than Wins of Fortune but not enough to catch up Big Bad Wolf, their most popular mobile slot.
So here’s the verdict.
Conclusion – Play Sticky Bandits Slot From 15th August 2017 at Select Quickspin Casinos
Sticky Bandits are not Harry and Marv from Home Alone 2, but Western train heist villains in Quickspin’s 6th slot of 2017.
While it has one of the most addictive features and an impressive long-term payout or RTP of 96.58%, it has a relatively small jackpot of 739x your total bet despite high volatility/variance.
So, if you’re after something less risky, then check out the studio’s last game of 2016, Phoenix Sun.
If you’re fine with the risk, then here are the 3 Sticky Bandits bonuses at a glance:
- Massive Wilds – win big with two huge wild symbols that take up 2 full reels each (reels 2 and 3, or reels 4 and 5).
- Free Spins bonus – trigger 7 free games with just 1 Bonus and 1 or 2 Massive Wilds (cannot be re-activated).
- Sticky Massive Wilds – the Massive Wilds that trigger the bonus and any new ones stick onto the screen until the end of the feature for even bigger winners.
P.S. Stay tuned for the next slot release Fairy Gate that’s scheduled for 12th September of this year. Meanwhile, check out the official video teaser.
