Sticky Bandits Slot Review
Saddle up your horses and join the gang that is preparing to rob the train in order to ride away to the sunset packed with cash. The dynamite is ready, the rifles are full and the moneybags are just waiting to be taken. Sticky Bandits is Quickspin’s five-reel video slot that offers 30 fixed paylines and can be played across all devices. Playable from £0.15 per spin, the 2017 release offers Massive Bonus Wild symbols and a Free Spins feature with Sticky Wilds that are locked on their positions for the remainder of the feature.
The canyon is the best place for the robbery to occur, so this is where the reels are set. Your gang consists of three Bandits, one of them is Female, which is the highest-paying regular symbol. Your goal is to get the Moneybags, and you will have to use Dynamite to stop the Train. Playing cards are used for low-value symbols. There are two more Bandits that will help you and both of them act as Bonus Wilds, meaning that they can substitute for all regular symbols and can also trigger the Free Spins feature. These Massive Wilds appear on reels 2-5 and can cover two entire reels. The Train is the Scatter that appears on reel 1.
The best part of the story is that you do not have to be an experienced bandit to play the Quickspin title. Even mere beginners will spin like pros in no time at all. The 2017 release features a 5×5 reel grid and 30 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, starting from the leftmost reel. Three of a kind is the minimum for landing payouts. Betting is fixed at 30 coins per spin, but the coin value can be changed and you can bet from £0.10 to £90 per single spin.
To trigger the Free Spins feature, players need to land the Train Scatter on reel 1 and a Massive Wild symbol on other reels. The Massive Wild needs to cover two entire reels in order to trigger free spins. Once this happens, players will be rewarded with 7 freebies. The triggering Wild will remain sticky for the remainder of the feature, allowing gamers land massive wins. If another Wild lands on the reels during the feature, it will also become a sticky Wild. The other Wild may cover up to 2 entire reels.
The central attraction of the Quickspin product is the Free Spins feature, because here you can win mind-blowing payouts, especially if the triggering Massive Wild lands on reels 2 and 3. The Girl Bandit is the symbol that pays the most, offering 6.666 times the bet for five of a kind. Other Bandits are not so generous. Sticky Bandits’ RTP is 96.58%.

The best part of the story is that the 2017 release can be played across all devices.
