Sticky Bandits Slot from Quickspin

7/2/2017

Quickspin will venture into the crowded Wild West genre with their upcoming Sticky Bandits game. This 5-reel adventure takes players deep into the desert, where outlaws try to pull off a big train heist.

As you can see, Sticky Bandits' story is far from original. In fact, it reminds us very much of NetEnt's Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist.

But Sticky Bandits does differ in terms of features and graphics. That said, let's cover what you can expect from this Quickspin game when it's released on August 15.

Gameplay and Atmosphere

Sticky Bandits takes place in the American Wild West, where you'll see mountains, desert, and train tracks. Our favorite part about the background is how the tracks go underneath a rock structure. All in all, we like the atmosphere a lot.

Symbols include several bandits, dynamite, moneybags, letters, locomotive, and numbers. The fact that this game has different characters is one aspect that totally reminds us of Wild Wild West. However, these bandits aren't quite as charactery (i.e. no eye-patches, scars, or tattoos).

You'll see some of the symbols perform animations, although they're nothing special when compared to other modern slots. We do like the variety of sound effects during winning combinations, which blend action with a Wild West feeling.

Sticky Bandits Slot Special Features

Massive Wild Symbols – During the preview, we saw plenty of spins that offered a Massive Wild. These symbols take up two entire reels and can result in really big wins.

Free Spins – You trigger free spins any time you get a bonus symbol and wild next to each other. This awards you 7 free spins along with sticky wilds that can result in huge payouts.

Locked (Sticky) Wilds – Sometimes the Massive Wilds remain onscreen and continue helping you form payouts.

Final Thoughts on Sticky Bandits Slot

As mentioned before, Sticky Bandit doesn't win any points for originality. Going further, the idea of basing an online slot around Wild West outlaws has already been done. Nevertheless, we do see some promising aspects of this slot.

Quickspin did a good job with the background, and the symbol graphics are also excellent. Throw in a few big-paying features, and Sticky Bandits is worth trying for fans of the Western genre.

You can play Sticky Bandits online slot for fun here on its releaseday or play other Quickspin slots for fun until then.
