Sticky Bandits: Wild Return Slot Review
The three Sticky Bandits are back and they are stronger than ever! The latest Quickspin title is the sequel of the famous Sticky Bandits Video slot and, after a train heist, they are coming back to the saloon to share the loot. Sticky Bandits: Wild Return is a five-reel 40-payline video slot that is placed in a Saloon packed with criminals who will be looking to rob you, so guard your money carefully. Playable from £0.20 per spin, the 2019 release offers Massive Bandits Symbols, free spins with lucky shots and sticky Wilds, as well as the Quick Slot Bonus.
Keep your pistols close, because the saloon is far from a friendly territory, especially for bandits loaded with cash. Sit at the bar and you can order Whiskey and smoke a Cigar, while you are waiting for your companions, the three Bandits. The Female Bandit is leading the gang, while the other two Male Bandits are her escort. A Golden Coin is the Wild that will substitute for all regular symbols, while the Skull with a Hat is the Scatter that triggers the Free Spins feature. Also, there is the Quick Slot symbol that appears on reel 5 and triggers the Quick Slot Bonus.
Even though you are entering a hostile territory, it is not that dangerous to sit around with other criminals. Even so, just to be safe, all quick draws among punters should learn the rules of the game before they sit at the bar. The 2019 release features five reels, three rows and benefits from 40 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, starting from the leftmost reel, with three of a kind being the minimum for landing payouts. Betting starts at £0.20 per spin, while the biggest possible wager cannot go over £100.
As for the special features, you are in for a real treat. All Bandit symbols can appear as 2×2 and 3×3 Massive Symbols, which will help you land more wins both during the base game and the Free Spins feature. To trigger free spins, players need to land three Scatters. During the Lucky Shot Free Spins feature, players get 7 freebies and every time a Bandit symbol appears on the reels, a Lucky Shot will be fired. If a low-paying playing card is shot, it will transform into a regular Wild. If the shot hits a Bandit symbol, it will turn it into a Sticky Wild, which will remain locked on its position until the feature ends. Shoot a Massive Symbol for a Massive Sticky Wild.
Finally, there is the Quick Slot Bonus, triggered once the Quick Slot symbol appear on reel 5. Gamers will get up to 3 spins on a slot machine with a single line and they can win up to 500 times the bet.
The biggest possible win gamers can expect in a single spin is set at 1,145 times the bet, which is an improvement when compared to the original Sticky Bandits video slot. Use Massive Bandits Symbols to land bigger wins and turn them into Massive Sticky Wilds during free spins and you will land some hefty payouts. Sticky Bandits: Wild Return’s RTP is 96.28%

Starting from the polished visuals, the amazing soundtrack, the rewarding Quick Slot Bonus, all the way to the Lucky Shot Free Spins feature with shots that turn symbols into Wilds. If you are lucky enough, the shot will hit the Massive Bandit Symbol and you will get a Massive Sticky Wild for the remainder of freebies.
