When it comes to game play and special features or lack thereof, Stickers is basically a Vegas-style fruit machine, but the game developers made sure to make it visually more appealing for the younger generations by introducing bright colours and rounded shapes.
There is no particular theme the game has been based on and the title seems to refer to Sticky Spin, which is basically your only opportunity to improve base line wins, although at least it does appear quite frequently.
Net Entertainment released Stickers in May 2015 and it is important to note that simple, bonus-less video slots are not exactly something the highly rated software provider has become famous for.
Quality graphics and smooth gameplay are in line with NetEnt’s other games, but Stickers was clearly an attempt to break away from a series of feature-packed slot games and create a game that will appeal to more conservative players.
How to Play
Simple game-play is what the slot is all about, and all you need to do before starting to play is select bet level (1-10) and coin value ($0.01-$1). Maximum twenty paylines are fixed, with all bet options accessible via the bottom panel.
As that is usually the case with NetEnt games, Stickers is quite easy on the eye, and the selection of fruit in the background and on the game screen is enough to suggest that the slot also promotes healthy life, even if the mouth-watering symbols are only used to form winning combinations.
Stickers is clearly not about bonus games and free spins round, but the only extra feature available adds a great deal of value to your wagers. Red Spades Wild icon not only substitutes for other game symbols without exceptions, but it acts as a Sticky Wild.
What this means is that each time Wild occurs in any position, it will remain in place while a free re-spin is awarded. If you get another Wild on said re-spin, both will remain in position for another re-spin, and this continues until there are no new Wild icons on the reels.
If you are one of those bonus hunters who are after big wins, Stickers will not be your cup of tea, but you should know that there are up to 80,000 coins to be won per single spin, which translates to $800-$80,000, depending on your coin value at the time.
Nevertheless, it is important to note that the five reel, twenty pay-line game pays frequently and at times handsomely during base play, with Sticky Spins triggered regularly and usually resulting in decent payouts.
At first glance, Stickers doesn’t feel like the game you could learn to love, taking into account the lack of bonus rounds and seemingly low payouts, but the slot goes to prove that first impressions are often wrong.
The NetEnt title is fun to play and awards frequent wins during the main game, unlike most other slots where you need to wait for the main bonus round to strike if you are to have any chance of turning a profit. And with Sticky Spins triggered on almost regular basis, Stickers is definitely worth your time.
