The Bandits are back and they’re looking as fierce as ever in the brand new Quickspin slot, part of the Sticky Bandit Series of games, Sticky Bandits Wild Return Slot.
Sticky Bandits Wild Return Slot promises to be every bit as exciting as the first Sticky Bandits, and they’ve even added a third to the gang, making the bandits a dangerous trio to be reckoned with.
Sticky Bandits Wild Return Slot will see the trio turn up as both normal and huge symbols on the reels, and the implementation of a Jackpot that can multiply a win by 500x makes this new Slot something to be really excited about.
Maybe there’s a space for us in the Bandit crew? Let’s see what dastardly deeds the Bandits get up to this time around.
The Theme in Sticky Bandits Wild Return showcases Quickspin’s aptitude in making a game aesthetically pleasing, with a saloon in the backdrop showing the folks of the Wild West having a chat and a drink.
The music is a catchy Wild West theme that obviously resonates really well with the theme, and Quickspin have done it a little bit better than other Wild West themed games have in the past. Some just don’t portray the essence of the Wild West well enough, but top marks to Quickspin in this aspect.
One can only imagine the carnage that will ensue when the Sticky Bandits bust through the door of the saloon, because the gameplay looks to be pretty action packed.
Before moving on to the gameplay aspect, its important to break down the little details of the game first, like betting options
Betting options in the game will cater to cowboys and cowgirls far and wide, with options as low as £/€0.20, and as high as £/€100. There is plenty in between as well, so in usual fashion, Quickspin have everyone in mind.
The highest paying symbol in the game is the newest addition to the crew, the female bandit with her golden revolvers.
Following on from her is the Cowboy with the shotgun, followed by the older, but still spry, cowboy with the revolver.
The Glass of Whisky and the Cigars are the next highest paying symbols, and A, K, Q & J are the lower paying ones.
There’s a Regular and Sticky Wild, which substitutes for all except for the Scatter, but you’ll only see the Sticky Wild in Free Spins
Sticky Bandits Wild Return Slot is a 5-reel slot with 40 pay lines, connecting 3 or more matching symbols from left to right across any of these 40 pay lines will form a win.
All of the Bandit Symbols can appear as massive symbols, which cover a 2×2 or 3×3 space.
If they get hit by a lucky shot within the Free Spins bonus, then they will transform into Sticky Wilds instead.
Sticky Bandits Wild Return features a brand new feature in the form of the Quick Slot Bonus
If a Quick Slot Symbol lands on reel 5 in the Base Game, then you’lll be awarded 1 to Free Spins on the Quick Slot Machine.
You can win up to 500x on a single spin with this feature, making it an extremely attractive prospect indeed.
Lucky Shot Free Spins Bonus is triggered by 3 Scatter symbols. 7 Free Spins are awarded in this feature.
Any time a bandit appears on the reels, a lucky shot will be fired, transforming it into a random symbol.
Bandit symbols will transform into sticky Wilds, and other symbols may transform into regular Wilds. If a Sticky Wild lands in Free Spins, then it will lock until the end of the feature.
Unlike the Quick Slot Bonus, the Lucky Shot Free Spins feature is a little more reminiscent of the old games, and the excitement of the sticky bandits is still alive and well.
With all the excitement comes a little dose of disappointment though, it doesn’t look as if Sticky Bandits Wild Return Slot can be re-triggered during the Bonus, as Scatter symbols can only land on reels 1, 3 and 5 in the Base Game
Sticky Bandits Wild Return has some elements about it that make it very exciting, but also a couple that make it a little bit disappointing.
On one hand, the potential to win up to 500x on a single spin via the Quick Slot Bonus is thrilling, but the maximum potential of the game overall is a little bit low if you consider how volatile the game is, with a 1145x Max Win.
Also, the fact that Scatter Symbols may only appear on 1, 3 and 5 is an annoying feature of too many games. Nothing worse than not landing a Scatter on the 1st knowing that you have no chance on the last 4 reels to bring it in.
Other than that, Sticky Bandit’s Wild Return will excite many, including die-hard fans of the Wild West theme of game and those who found their riches in the original game.
Multipliers and re-triggers wouldn’t have gone a miss, but a decent game overall, but nowhere near as good as some of Quickspin’s other games. now
Sticky Bandits Wild Return Slot will is available to play at most New Casinos now.
