The One Armed Bandit: Game Highlights
As Sticky Bandits Wild Return, the artwork paints an image of a town deep in the US south, located in a desert canyon. We can almost feel our skin baking in the heat. The 5-reels and 20 paylines include a flask, pistol, cowboy hat and spur. The previous four make up the high-pays symbols while four playing card suit symbols make up the low-pays symbol.
The soundtrack includes a lazy western tune which fits the game to a tee. This July, 2019 release has an RTP of 96.3% and we can adjust the wagers from £0.10 to £40. The online slot game has been optimised for desktop, tablet and mobile. This means we can travel the US south using our Android or iOS operated device.
The slot has an RTP of 96.3%.
The Respin Feature
The Respin Feature is triggered by a scatter symbol in the base game. After wins are calculated, the scatter symbol becomes a wild for the duration of the respins. It is possible to collect up to 4 respins in one spin. Wilds have the ability to substitute for all the regular symbols. They can only appear during the respins or free spins.
Features include respins, wilds and free spins with win multipliers and multiplier wilds.
Free Spins Feature
If we manage to land the scatter symbol on each of the five reels then the 10 free spins feature is triggered. During the free spins a base win multiplier of x5 is applied to wins which can increase in value to x20. First, landing two bonus symbols increases the win multiplier to x10. Another two bonus symbols increases the win multiplier to the maximum x20. Each additional bonus symbol after that adds one free spins to the total. A combination of wild multiplier and win multiplier can award up to x100 win!
Western themed slots
If you like Wild West-themed slots, I’ve put together a short selection of those I recommend you try.
The One Armed Bandit: Worth a peek
To its credit, the Yggdrasil slot has solid graphics and a pretty decent soundtrack. There are other audio effects that contributed to the western atmosphere as well.
I found the respins feature did not trigger quite as often as I would have expected and although I did manage to trigger the free spins, they did require some patience. Really, it is the free spins where we can do the most damage as we can benefit from both the multiplier wilds and progressive win multipliers. When I did finally manage to trigger the free spins, I found that reaching the progressive multiplier maximum of x20 was not an impossibility although I never was lucky enough to receive the maximum multiplier combination of x100.
While I found the slot lacking in features, it is probably worth a peek.
