With a maximum exposure of 22,000x your bet, this Sticky Bandits 3 slot has the biggest bank heist of the series.
In case the name didn’t give it away, the Sticky Bandits 3 mobile slot is not the first in the Quickspin slots series. And what do they all have in common?
Well for one they are all set in the American Old West, with the first set in the wild frontier and the second in an old saloon. So where are we now? Well, the white hat lady in Sticky Bandits 2 has finished her whiskey to find her own crew of all-female bandits.
Each one of her crew is a wild symbol and they’ve headed to the old-timey bank to grab sacks of gold over 5 reels and 9 paylines. It’s a well-trodden slot theme that works really well and we can happily play again and again.
What we like about this Sticky Bandit 3 online slot is that it brings the games back to basic.
Sticky Bandits 3 is a 5×3 reel 9 payline slot with 95.82% RTP, wilds, and scatters that trigger 12 free spins with sticky wild symbols and a 2x multiplier.
How simple is that? Very simple, but that’s not to say it’s not fun. In other words, the base game just has normal wild symbols and a strong paytable which offers good rewards as you wait for the free spins to hit.
This may frustrate players who are used to more bells and whistles in the base game to entertain them whilst they wait for the main feature of the game.
If that’s the case, you may want to use the buy feature – for 60x your bet you can trigger the free spins anytime you want, which is cheaper than in many other mobile slots online.
If the first Sticky Bandits slot tried to break the rules with those stacked wilds, and the sequel then upped the game with mega wilds in the free spins, the third brings it back to basics.
Fans of the Dead or Alive 2 slot will find a lot of joy in this casino game, especially because it keeps things as simple as possible without sacrificing the real big wins.
We wish we could have seen some mega wilds or stacked wilds or more than just sticky wilds in the free spins. Just to stick with the excitement of the original two.
And even though we had lots of fun playing, this feels like a step back for Quickspin casinos, rather than a step forward. For that alone, we couldn’t quite bring ourselves to give it 4 stars.

Wild Symbol: This bandit will replace any other symbol over the 9 chairs, giving you more wins.
Free Spins Bonus: When 3 or more scatter symbols land anywhere on the screen, you'll trigger 12 free spins. All the wins in the free spins have a 2x multiplier.
You'll now also get the Sticky Bandit Wilds. When a wild symbol lands during the free spins, it will stick in place and remain there for the rest of the bonus game. If each reel has one sticky wild, you'll get an additional +5 free spins.
Bonus Buy: You can buy the free spins bonus for 60x your bet. This will trigger the bonus spins with anything from 3 to 5 scatters.
Where are the mega symbols? Where are our sticky bandits? We are sorry to say that of the three slot games, this is the one we will return to the least.
And as we say that, we know that we might be lying because the top win of over 22,000x our stake is just too large to ignore.
Because the first two impressed us so much, we couldn't help but compare, and that's why this Sticky Bandits 3 slot review only gets 3 stars. That said, it's a great 9 payline game with a very strong paytable.
