Sticky Bandits: Wild Return Review
Everyone's favourite bandits are back in town but they are meaner and leaner this time. In the first game, Sticky Bandits, the gang tried to steal a train.
Now, for the sequel, the bandits are tearing up the local saloon. Developed by Quickspin, Sticky Bandits: Wild Return plays on 5-reels with 40 paylines.
Throughout this slot, there are free spins as well as a unique Quick Slot Symbol mode delivering a mini-game leading to wins of up to 500x your stake.
Set in a dark and dingy saloon is where you'll find the bandits. The saloon door opens and sets the stage for the slot. There are various suspicious-looking figures in the bar but thankfully, they are designed well and also animated.
On the reels, the bandits return and are even bigger than ever! In addition to the graphical upgrades, the symbols are also animated on the reels giving them more life.
As for the music, it's exactly what you'd expect in a saloon with a guitar playing with harmonica noises to create an upbeat musical score that also reminds players of the wild west.
Unlike the first game, there is more going on in this slot aside from the free spins round. There are also larger symbols of 2x2 or 3x3 as well as a fruit machine mini-game.
Like most Quickspin slots, the menu bar can be found at the bottom of the screen with the spin button and bet level to the right of this.
There is a decent RTP in this slot with 96.22% as well as a high volatility level leading to larger wins but less frequently.
Sadly, the maximum win from the original game has not been corrected enough as it's at a mediocre 1,492x your stake which is a bit low for a modern online slot.
Sticky Bandits: Wild Return is definitely a better slot than the original as everything has improved in this slot. There are more features, a better design and a greater win potential.
If you loved the original or wild west slots in general then we recommend giving this slot a spin as the features are too good to miss.
