Sticky Bandits: Wild Return Slot

Quickspin’s band of outlaws are back for another adventure in Sticky Bandits: Wild Return. Played using a 5 reel, 40 payline game engine, this Wild West adventure combines top design with plenty of extras. Look out for colossal symbols, spins on the Quick Slot Machine that can pay up to 500 times your stake as well as a free spins round with sticky wilds. Play on all devices from between 20p and £100 per spin.

As usual for a Quickspin slot game, plenty of effort has been put into the design of Sticky Bandits: Wild Return. With a saloon bar in the background, you’ll see A to J symbols as well as boxes of cigars, glasses of bourbon and the 3 bandits. The best of the trio is the cigar-chomping cowgirl who’ll get you 0.75, 1.5 or 10 times your stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 on 1 of the game’s 40 paylines.

Known as the Massive Symbols feature, the 3 bandit symbols can appear as singles or in colossal 2x2 and 3x3 formation. Those same payouts are on offer from the wild which replaces all the standard symbols. There are 2 other features on offer in Sticky Bandits: Wild Return.

Quick Slot Bonus feature - land the one-armed bandit symbol on reel 5 to trigger this round. You’ll then receive 1, 2 or 3 spins on a special set of mini reels. These offer payouts of between 4 and 500 times your stake per spin if you land 3 matching symbols.

Lucky Shot Free Spins Bonus feature - to activate this round, you’ll need to land 3 scatters on the same spin. Your reward is 7 free spins. Every time a bandit symbols lands during the free spins, a shot is fired at the reels. If it hits a standard symbol, it turns into a wild. If the shot hits a standard wild, it turns into a sticky wild and locks in position for the rest of the round.

This sequel is very nicely done. The visuals have a classy look to them and there’s some classic Americana playing in the background while you spin. The features impress too. The Quick Slot Bonus feature is a nice addition and the Free Spins feature offers some solid potential courtesy of the colossal symbols and sticky wilds – there’s up to 1,145 times your stake to be won.

Put all that together and Sticky Bandits: Wild Return becomes a very playable take on the classic western theme. For more volatile cowboys, Dead or Alive II (by Net Entertainment) or The Wild 3 (by NextGen Gaming) are my 2 favourites.
