About the slot machine

The Wild West is a theme that most people know since childhood, and that it is possible to make casino entertainment out of it all, there are several game providers who have shown. A video slot from NetEnt with a similar character is Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist . But now the game maker has Quickspin took the theme and created a video slot that also offers spexy bonus features.

The Sticky Bandits slot machine consists of a slightly larger playing field than the typical model for online slot games. It has 5 spinning reels, 5 rows and 30 paylines. This means room for more symbols than the many games that, for example, only have 3 lines. Features like both enlarged Wilds and freespins engages the player as much as the bandits who rob trains in the game. Sticky Bandits also has a theoretical payout of 69.81%, making it a slot that, according to theory, should pay out several smaller wins more often than rare big wins. However, this always depends on how you play. The higher the bet level and coin value, the bigger the winnings that fall in.

Today's video slots wouldn't be as popular if it weren't for all the different types of bonus features available today. The development has gone much further than regular free spins triggered by a selected Scatter symbol, something that Quickspin has known about for a long time now. In this Western slot, there are both Bonus symbols and features that take you to a bonus round that increases the chances of winning.

Free spins

The classic bonus benefit of free spins is included as expected in Sticky Bandits. However, it is not the typical Scatter symbol that triggers that bonus round, but the game's bonus symbol in combination with a joker. Land a bonus symbol anywhere on the 1st reel, and a Wild on reels 2 or 4 to instantly activate 7 free spins . Should you also have other Wild symbols on other positions when the feature is activated, they remain Wilds even during the bonus round. However, once you have triggered the free spins round, no bonus symbols will be available. However, Wilds can land on the reels even during the bonus round with free spins, and these remain throughout the game round.



As in all slot machines, all symbols in Sticky Bandits have different values. There are both strong and weak symbols in the game, where the strong symbols reflect characters in the game. These range between 2-40$ for a combination of 5 symbols. The female character of the game sits at the highest value, followed by the bandits in the hat, the sack of steels and the dynamite symbol.

The game's weaker symbols are more typical of online slots. These consist of the letters A, K, Q and J. these have a significantly lower value and generate profits of between 6 – 8$ when combining at least 5 of these.

Bonus Symbol Bonus symbol

The usual bonus symbols in the game are clearly marked. They are symbolized by a locomotive from the front titled Bonus, unlike the bonus symbols which consist of enlarged wilds. These are recognized quite quickly as the symbol is marked with the text Bonus. Unlike the Big Wild symbols, the bonus symbols can only land on reel number 1.

Enlarged Wilds

The bandits in the game also act as jokers who can adopt the characteristics of the other symbols in the game. But not only that, they also act as the game's bonus symbols when labeled ’Bonus Wild’. These can only land on reels 2 or 4, but since they are enlarged, they also cover positions on the reels closest to the right, i.e. reels 3 and 5. Since Wilds can always substitute for other symbols, this means really good chances for improved winning combinations across the entire playing field!

Sticky Bandits is a pretty special slot even though the theme is familiar from before. It is undoubtedly the game's bonus round with free spins that incubates the juiciest wins in Sticky Bandits. The charm of enlarged Wilds also means better odds for the player because the symbol has a better chance of stopping and contributing to a nice winning combination. Something that contributes incredibly much to the theme of the game is the sound, or rather the music. Games with sound on and in the headphones make you almost feel like Clint Eastwood when you spin bandits on the reels. Plus the edge for massive jokers that also act as bonus symbols and can cover up to 2 full reels.
