Stockholm, August 15th, 2017 – Swedish slots specialist Quickspin, a Playtech Group company, is leading players into the Wild West with its thrill-a-minute, rollercoaster ride release, Sticky Bandits.

The 5×5 slot sees a pair of dodgy desperadoes plot to rob a runaway train in the cacti-strewn canyons of the desert.

The game features massive wild symbols of the train-heist villains, with the bonus symbol and any wild symbol triggering a free spin bonus.

Developed in HTML5, Sticky Bandits features stunning graphics as well as a killer Spaghetti Western soundtrack.

It is also the latest title to feature Quickspin’s innovative Achievements Engine, which has been designed to offer players a more entertaining and more rewarding experience.

It makes use of six unique game events that take place in all the supplier’s slots, rewarding players with Quickspin tokens when free spins or other features are triggered.

Achievements are set across four levels and pay out at each level, with players able to cash in their tokens to trigger one of the game’s bonus feature, such as free spins or side games.

Players can track their progress, as well as claim and collect their reward on a designated page within each Quickspin slot.

Quickspin CEO, Daniel Lindberg, said: “Sticky Bandits promises to be yet another smash hit taking players on a rollercoaster ride across the heart of the desert.

“This cowboy themed game is also the latest Quickspin to feature our newly-launched Achievements Engine, a ground-breaking gamification module that has proven to be very popular with players.”

The new HTML5 slot follows the hugely successful Wins of Fortune and other blockbuster games such as Sakura Fortune, Leprechaun Hills, Hot Sync, Phoenix Sun, and Dragon Shrine.

Founded in 2011, Quickspin rapidly established itself as a leading development studio for real money and social casino gaming and was acquired by Playtech in March 2016.

Now licensed in multiple jurisdictions, its award-winning content has helped the company sign agreements with a long list of leading operators.
