On 15 August, Quickspin will be releasing its latest mobile slot game to players everywhere: Sticky Bandits. The highly anticipated slot comes as part of the developer’s plan to expand its portfolio, aiming to claim a further share of the mobile market instead of sticking mainly to the realm of online betting.
A sneak peak preview has since been released detailing the new Sticky Bandits mobile slot, which was announced back in June. The game is set to feature superior, realistic graphics, along with its own quirky soundtrack to match the Wild West theme that has proven so popular with mobile players.
Playing out over 5 reels and 30 paylines, the high volatility game will be optimised for desktop and mobile devices, including tablets and popular smartphone operating systems. The betting options range from 0.15 to 90.00 per spin, with coin denominations ranging from 0.01 to 2.00.
Inspired by the American Wild West, the slot is set to boast plenty of cowboys, sheriffs and gun-wielding bandits, along with a barren landscape that will transport players back to its times to shoot their way out of sticky situations alongside the West’s most notorious outlaws.
Staying true to its innovative nature, Quickspin has added some interesting features into its new mobile slot, including huge 5x5 reels and the chance for players to win up to 739 times their bets.
However, the most striking bonus feature is the massive Wild symbols that cover 5 reels and 2 rows each, making for big winning potential every time one of them lands.
These big Wilds also trigger the Stick Bandits bonus feature, which is a classic free spins game with 7 free games on offer. However, this too has received the Quickspin treatment, with all Wild symbols that land staying sticky on the screen for the duration of the feature.
Critics have noted that the Wild West theme has been done many times before, but players argue that Quickspin has put a unique slant on the classic theme with their sleek graphics and innovative big Wilds that stay sticky during the bonus games.
With that said, players will be able to have the final say halfway through August when the mobile slot is released internationally to Quickspin’s licensees.
