Best Sticky Wilds Slots at LeoVegas

Sticky Wilds Explained

Sticky Wilds is a feature available in some slot machine games, where wild symbols remain on the playing grid after the reels spin, allowing for subsequent spins with the wild symbols in place. This feature can significantly increase the chances of landing winning combinations.


What is Sticky Wild Slots?

In casino circles, Wilds are where it’s at. Stacked, expanding, raining, and shifting Wilds can all be found all over the slots in our LeoVegas Casino. Today, we’re going to introduce you to something different, Sticky Wilds slots. So don’t forget to wash your hands afterwards!

As you might already know, Wilds are symbols that can be used in place of any other symbol on the reels. This means they can substitute for a missing symbol and help create a winning combination. While Sticky Wilds are bound to appear in many different places based on the slot you’ve chosen, Wilds usually perform the same function across all slots, varying in length of their stay on the reels and size. Continuing with this train of thought, the question you need to ask is….

How are Sticky Wilds different from other Wilds?

The sole distinction between regular Wilds and Sticky Wilds in slots is that Sticky Wilds stay in place when the reels are spun again. Essentially, Sticky Wilds slots give you two chances at hitting a payline with the same Wild.

Stickiness can last for just one spin, a few, or the entirety of a free spins round, with even more Wilds potentially joining the party as you go along. In the latter case, Wilds that can only be found in bonus features will usually disappear when the next bonus feature round ends.

As for value, a Sticky Wild may have no intrinsic value or serve as a slot’s jackpot symbol. This is what makes Wilds so interesting. They can be mysterious, possessing a different identity in each slot title you choose.

Note that the function of Sticky Wilds isn’t uniform across all games. They’ll always “stick” to the reels but as we hinted at earlier, they might look different or only appear under certain conditions, a topic that we’ll dive into next.

How to Trigger Sticky Wilds Feature

Wilds of all types can be fickle. In most cases, a Wild will serve as a regular symbol, albeit one with a unique personality. In other cases, Wilds will only appear in bonus modes, such as a free spins round. As these secondary features are usually triggered by three or more Scatters, you might find yourself on a collecting spree before you see a whisper of a Wild.

As a quick introduction to Sticky Wilds slots, let’s take a look at some of the games with this feature you can play at LeoVegas.

Best Slots with Sticky Wilds at LeoVegas

The Dog House Megaways

The Dog House Megaways

Pragmatic Play's The Dog House Megaways is one of this developer’s contributions to the expanding Megaways catalogue. It's everything you'd expect from a Megaways game (seven reels with two to seven symbols on each) rolled up in a furry, four pawed package.

This particular doghouse isn't a place of punishment. The game offers both Sticky Wilds and Raining Wilds, alongside 117,649 ways to win. The standard sticky Wild feature image is the Doghouse symbol which offers a 2x or 3x multiplier. Trigger the rare Raining Wilds feature by finding between three and six Scatters to produce a "rainfall" of up to 30 free spins and six Wilds onto the reels. Similarly, you can only access Sticky Wilds by collecting the Bonus Paw Scatter.

The Dog House Megaways is something of a sequel to the original The Dog House, which was a 5x3 video slot game. As within that game, you can make a pampered pooch or a goofy chihuahua your champion! The gang’s all here!

Blaze of Ra

The Ancient Egyptian god of the sun - Ra - is the focus of this Push Gaming slot. Blaze of Ra is a 5x4 game that's filled with enough bonus features to make all that sand in your shoes worth it. The dog-headed Anubis makes a cameo too.

Ra is Wild and his bird-headed-ness controls the Nudging Wilds feature. This little extra makes Blaze of Ra one of our Sticky Wilds slots. Simply get two Ras in the top two positions (any reels) to have them nudge down and stick. All the other symbols will spin again.

Wild symbols are also active in free spins rounds. An expanded Ra symbol will fill the entirety of the first, third, and fifth reels, meaning that you'll only need to make a two-symbol combination to win bonus rounds. Activate the free spins round with three Scarab symbols.

Vikings Go Berserk

Vikings Go Berserk

History starts to look a little different once you learn that medieval people didn’t like the Vikings because they were clean and well-groomed (and, admittedly, murderous). Still, the image of the barbarian Nord remains prominent in slots.

Vikings Go Berserk is, fittingly, a slot from Yggdrasil Gaming. The Wild symbol substitutes for all others, as usual, but regular Viking symbols can transform into Sticky Wilds during free spins mode. Vikings Go Berserk also offers random Wilds and random sticky Wilds act the reels.

The objective of the game is to help the Vikings achieve a battle rage - Berserk Mode - to defeat the evil Siren creature. This mythology-inspired title is low on symbols but it's loaded with extra features to play with. If the pillaging goes well, you may encounter the Golden Treasure Chest, which only lands on the fifth reel. This is an expansion of the normal Treasure Chest but both of them grant special bonuses. Good luck getting to Valhalla with this one!

Sticky Bandits

While not the kind of name you’d want for your gang of rogues, Sticky Bandits captures the essence of the outlaw West in a 5x5 slot. Once again, this game is based around Wilds with a Massive multiplier Wilds occupying up to eight positions.

This Quickspin slot comes with a special symbol that can trigger the free spin bonus round. In this side game, you'll have the chance to find a Wild on reels 2 or 4. This fills your loot bag with seven free spins and some Sticky Wilds.

Sticky Bandits is actually the first game of several dedicated to adhesive bad guys, a run that hints at this slot's popularity. It also has the innovative Achievement Engine onboard, which can add more wins to your pile.

The Achievement Engine mimics a feature used in regular video gaming. Earn Quickspin tokens by completing four levels of tasks and spending them on bonus features, including free spins.

Wild Swarm

The company of bees is a difficult sell but Quickspin has made the idea a little more desirable with its Wild Swarm slot. Soaked in honey and as sticky as possible, Wild Swarm is a 5x4 game with a pair of sticky Wild symbols too.

The Wild Honey symbol is a garden-variety Wild, substituting for everything but the Scatter and Chest symbols. On the other hand, the Sticky Wild is a sticky wild features a bonus game exclusive that pairs with Wild Swarm's free spins round. Trigger this with three Beehive Scatters and have your epi pen ready to roll!

Wild Swarm also has a hidden Pick feature. A Chest symbol landing anywhere on the game board will reveal five instant win prizes ranging from multipliers to bonus round triggers. Simply pick one Chest to win whatever's behind it.

Sticky Wilds slots can be some of the more rewarding games out there - and Wild Swarm is definitely one of these. Stack the reels with four or more Sticky Wilds symbols and let the free spins buzz begin.

Vikings Go Wild

Vikings Go Wild

Another damning report about Viking blood pressure, Vikings Go Wild is a Yggdrasil title and a relative of Vikings Go Berserk. The game is similar to its cousin but this time, you’ll be fighting a sea monster aboard a longship.

Wilds in this game will be familiar by now. There’s a standard Wild that covers for all other symbols, as well as a special Wild that only appears during the free spins mode. This is triggered at random, whenever a Viking drops onto the reels (hence, Vikings going wild...).

Apart from that, Vikings Go Wild offers much the same mix of coins and Viking visages across slot games, five reels and 25 paylines. As one of our Sticky Wilds slots, it counts itself among some of LeoVegas’ more popular games. In fact, anything that provides extra opportunities to win usually has a devoted fan base here.

Wilds are some of the oldest slot machine features still doing the rounds. In fact, if we consider the Joker symbol in a pack of cards a Wild, the symbol can be traced all the way back to the fruit machines of the late 19th century.
