Sticky Bandits: Wild Return (By Quickspin)
The old bandits from the Quickspin town are back and they seem to be bigger and meaner. By bigger, we mean that the gang has grown and added a third new bad-ass member.

Scheduled to be released on 13th August 2019, this high variance slot has a 5×3 reel grid and promises a thrilling round of spins as these three Sticky Bandits roll down on the reel creating Massive symbols. If you land the right symbol combinations, here’s an extremely exciting shootout in the Free Spins Bonus where all the bandits can turn into Sticky Wilds. Apart from that, there are two more bonus features: Quick Slot Bonus (a game inside the game where you can win up to 500x your bet in one single spin) and Lucky Shot Free Spins Bonus (if you collect 3 Bonus Scatter symbols you trigger the Free Spins Bonus and 7 free spins). The Quick Bonus slot is a jackpot game in the form of an old slot machine inside this slot game (we are calling it slot inception!). In this bonus round you can multiply a win with several hundred times your bet – so there’s a chance to win big! How much you ask? 149,200 coins to be precise. You can start rolling on these wild reels from £0.20 and the maximum bet can go up to £100.
