the game field, which consists of 5 reels, 4 rows and 40 bet lines.

If they are hit by a lucky shot in the Free Spins Bonus, the whole symbol transforms into Sticky Wilds.  However, the highest paying symbol is the lady bandit with 2 shooting irons.

Sticky Bandits Wild Return Slot Features:

Quick Slot Bonus:

Before you make your spins on this classic slot machine, the Quick Slot Symbol reveals 1 to 3 coins, which represent the nr of spins awarded on the machine. You can win up to 500x bet on this little slot machine, in other
words a rather interesting feature.

Lucky Shot Freespins Bonus:

3 Bonus Scatter symbols trigger the Lucky shot Free Spins Bonus, 7 Free Spins are awarded. Anytime a bandit appears on the reels, a lucky shot is fired and  transforms a random symbol. Bandits transform into Sticky Wilds and Other Symbols transform into Regular Wilds. The Sticky Wild  symbol is only present during Free Spins. A sticky wild locks into position until end of the Free Spins Bonus. It substitutes for all symbols except Bonus Scatter symbols.

Verdict & Conclusion:

The sound in this slot is catchy and above average. You can clearly hear that you are in the Wild Wild West. Another western game with good sound is Dead or Alive 2 from NetEnt. The Quick Slot Bonus is a great compliment to the game because only Free Spins would not have been enough. The Quick Slot Bonus is that little extra spice that is needed in this slot! It’s certainly a nice feeling to enter the saloon and hear the piano sound while you make your spins during this special Bonus!

The Lucky Shot Freespins Bonus is entertaining and the Sticky Wilds are appreciated. The lucky shots fired during this bonus is certainly creating a flush of excitment. The Freespins “with the return of the Sticky Bandits is a success”.

It’s a pity that additional Free Spins can’t be won, though. SlotHits played the slot for a while and noticed that the wins were somewhat low. Anyways you can win up to to 1145 times your stake per spin if you are lucky.

The soundtrack is great and the graphics are superb. However, the possibility to win additional Freespins during Free spins would have been appreciated and the Maximum win could have been higher for a spin! Overall it’s an entertaining slot and it’s definitely enjoyable to visit a Saloon and the Wild Wild West for a while! However, the slot doesn’t have what it takes to be titled a slot hit.
