The fourth game in the Sticky Bandits series, the Sticky Bandits: Trail of Blood slot has a Wild West theme. The story is that deputy sheriff Tex Tallonis returns to the goldrush town on a quest for justice. The town resembles the historic Weaverville town in California.  He’s made some powerful enemies as a result with bandits peppering his home with bullets and Molotov cocktails.

This resulted in a lives of his wife and children being taken. A year has passed and he’s back to avenge the killing of his family. With a dark and twisted feel, it’s a lot more sinister than previous Sticky Bandits slots by Quickspin’s standards. It’s not quite Nolimit City’s Tombstone RIP slot though. The soundtrack is something that could feature in a Sergio Leone film.

Symbols on the reels include Aces, Kings, Queens and Jacks as the low value symbols. Then you have Molotov cocktails, brass knuckles, knives and golden revolvers. The golden revolver is the best paying symbol with 2, 3, 4 or 5 awarding 0.5, 2, 10 or 75 x your total stake.

Sticky Bandits: Trail of Blood benefits from 5 different wild symbols, 1 per reel. You have the mayor (reel 1), chancellor (reel 2), sheriff (reel 3), Sally (reel 4) and deputy (reel 5). Wilds substitute for all other symbols. 2, 3, 4 or 5 wilds will pay 1, 2.5, 15 or 300 x your total stake. There’s no traditional scatter or bonus symbol.

Revenge Free Spins feature

sticky-bandits-trail-of-blood-slot-revenge-free-spins-feature

The main attraction is the Revenge Free Spins feature which is triggered when 3 or more wilds appear anywhere on the reels. 3, 4 or 5 wilds will award 10, 12 or 15 free spins respectively. The town now has a red sky and a lot more intense graphically.

The triggered wilds are sticky during the feature. The transform into badges and remain in positions. Any new wilds appearing will also become sticky wilds as well as award 1 extra free spin. This means 25 free spins are possible in total.

Now, sticky wilds occupying an entire payline will trigger the Trail of Blood feature. This will pay you 300 x your total stake per locked line on every free spin. This means a screen full of wilds will pay 3,000 x your total stake on each free spin.

Originality








Being the fourth in the series, there’s pressure on Quickspin to deliver a good game in the Sticky Bandits: Trail of Blood slot. Visually, it’s by far the best of the series and more like a Nolimit City production that a traditional Quickspin game.

In terms of the gameplay, I like the fact each reel has it’s own wild symbol. This is exactly like Dead or Alive 2 from NetEnt. The main attraction is the Revenue Free Spins feature. The key is to land plenty of new wilds in order to fill paylines with sticky wilds.

1 payline full of sticky wilds will pay 300 x your total stake per free spin. If you fill all positions with wilds, you will win 3,000 x bet per free spin. This means the 17,000 x stake max exposure is available in the Revenge Free Spins feature as a whole.

In summary, Sticky Bandits 4 is visually superior to the previous games and the gameplay is exciting. Just hope plenty of sticky wilds appear during the free spins to land the big wins. That said, the previous release, Sticky Bandits 3: Most Wanted, offers bigger wins of 22,468 x stake.

Pros
  • Superb graphics/soundtrack
  • Free spins with sticky wilds + 300 x stake prizes per payline
  • 17,000 x stake max wins
Cons
  • Lower max win than previous Sticky Bandits slot
