Quickspin’s Sticky Bandits: Wild Return Slot Review

Sticky Bandits: Wild Return is the sequel of Sticky Bandits and is brought to you by Quickspin. With 5 reels and 40 paylines, you can head to the Wild West from 20p to £100 a spin on desktop, mobile and tablet devices. This game is bigger and bolder than the original – it’s on steroids.

Graphically brilliant, the setting is a dingy saloon with various bandits lurking. With a superb soundtrack, it comes with Western style A, K, Q and J card suits as well as cigars, whiskey tumblers and 3 bandits. The female bandit is the most rewarding with 3, 4 or 5 on a payline giving you 0.75, 1.5 or 10 times your stake.

There’s also a regular wild symbol which substitutes for all symbols bar the Sticky Wild and bonus scatter – it pays like the female bandit. Sticky Bandits: Wild Return comes with a Massive Symbols feature – all bandits basically appear as Massive Symbols which can be 2x2 or 3x3 in size. This increase your chances of forming winning combination.

There’s also a Quick Slot Bonus feature – this is played when a Quick Slot symbol lands on reel 5 in the base game – you will then get between 1 and 3 spins on the Quick Slot Machine. With 3 reels and 4 symbols only, you can win up to 500 times your stake on each of the spins:

  • 1 cherry symbol = 4 times stake
  • 2 cherry symbols = 6 times stake
  • 3 cherry symbols = 8 times stake
  • 3 bar symbols = 20 times stake
  • 3 horseshoe symbols = 80 times stake
  • 3 lucky red 7 symbols = 500 times stake

Lastly, there’s the Lucky Shot Free Spins Bonus feature – this is triggered when you get 3 skull bonus scatters on the reels. With 7 free spins awarded, look out for bandits on the reels as a lucky shot is fired and transforms a random symbol. Bandits also transform into sticky wilds with other symbols transforming into regular wilds. More importantly if a symbol that is shot is part of a Massive Symbol, all positions of the Massive Symbol will become sticky wilds.

Sticky Bandits: Wild Return is a good slot that I believe is better than the original (named Sticky Bandits). Whilst you could win up to 739 times your stake per free spin in the original, the sequel offers bigger payouts of up to 1,145 times your stake per spin.

Overall, Sticky Bandits: Wild Return is better than the original – if you want a real Wild West adventure, Net Entertainment’s Dead or Alive II is a must-play slot as you can win up to 111,111.11 times your stake in 1 of the free spins features!
