All you need to know about Sticky Wilds - by Casumo

If you’re eager to find out a whole lot more about Sticky Wilds, then you’ve come to the right page! At Casumo, we don't just offer you the best casino games, we’re also here to provide you with all kinds of useful information - let’s get right to it!

Simply put: Sticky Wilds are a type of Wild symbol. For those of you scratching yourself behind the ear right now, Wild symbols tend to replace a symbol to help you get a winning combination. They are usually part of the base game of slots.  Depending on which game you’re playing, they could also help you earn extra spins and/or multipliers. There are many different kinds of Wild symbols, but if Wilds were a family, the Sticky Wild is like your first cousin.

Now that we covered a brief introduction of the Sticky Wild, let’s dive deeper into the nitty gritty of this ‘tacky’ symbol! 

What are Sticky Wilds?

Sticky Wilds have the same functionality as ‘regular’ Wilds; they can help you complete a winning combination by substituting for another symbol. As the name already implies, what differentiates them is that Sticky Wilds can “stick" onto the reels and stay put for the next spin(s). Needless to say this could potentially increase your chances of landing those desired winning combinations!

Advantages of Sticky Wilds

As mentioned before, Sticky Wilds could come in handy with getting you your winning combos. Since they stick into place, they could give you more chances of winning on the following spins (they might, not will!). Another great advantage is that Wilds sometimes like to pair up with multipliers. If that’s the case: Hello potentially increased win size! 

Some slot games will give you a new Sticky Wild on each spin once you manage to trigger the bonus feature. This might result in reels jam-packed with Sticky Wilds and increased win potential.

In short: the advantage of Sticky Wilds is the increased potential of triggering larger wins. Now that’s music to our ears!

Where can you find Sticky Wilds?

Sticky Wilds can be found in modern video slots - and we offer lots of those here at Casumo! Think of those super snazzy looking slots with special rounds, extra spins, bonus features, phenomenal graphics and catchy soundtracks. Sticky Wilds could appear randomly in the slot’s base game, but they could also be one of the key elements of a bonus feature. 

You probably shouldn’t expect Sticky Wilds to pop up whilst playing a classic fruit machine.

How do Sticky Wilds work?

Time for a little halfway recap! What do we know so far? By now we know that Sticky Wilds “stick” into place on the reels of lots of modern video slots to potentially help increase your chances of landing a winning combo on the following spin(s). It might be useful to point out that, depending on the slot, they could work slightly differently. Let’s look into the different mechanics of Sticky Wilds.

Here’s a quick overview of how a Sticky Wild might behave:

- Sticks into place for a new spin

- Sticks into place for a free re-spin

- Sticks into place until you land a winning combo

- Sticks into place for a specific number of free spins

- Sticks into place until a bonus symbol appears to undo it

- Sticks into place and expands to fill the entire reel

Types of Sticky Wilds

Now that you know more about the potential behavior of Sticky Wilds depending on the slot you’re playing, let’s have a closer look at the different types of Sticky Wilds. 

1. Expanding Sticky Wilds: this type of Sticky Wild can spread out on multiple positions on the reels, or even stick on an entire reel (sticky reels). For as long as it lasts, this could increase your chances of completing winning combinations with each spin.

2. Sticky Wilds with multiplier: sometimes Sticky Wilds come with a multiplier for each winning combination they help you get. Generally they’ll come with a multiplier of x2.

3. Random/Extra Sticky Wilds: several slots come with additional random Wilds to potentially increase your winnings. If these Wilds are sticky, they will remain in place while the symbols on the reels around them re-spin.

How do I know if a slot has Sticky Wilds? 

Easy as pie! To find out if a slot includes Sticky Wilds, all you have to do is check out the slot’s paytable. You should be able to find it there together with all kinds of info you’d want to know before you start playing a slot. Think symbols, Wilds, Scatters and how each of them behaves, as well as winning combos, payouts and how they could potentially activate bonus feature(s). 

Bottom line: having a close up look at the slot’s paytable before you start playing with real money is always a good idea. 

Casumo's top games with Sticky Wilds 

At Casumo we offer a great variety of Sticky Wilds slots. For the occasion we’ve put together a selection of our personal favourites available from our game browser. Have a look and ‘stick’ around for a spin, if you like what you see!

1. Vikings Go Wild

Yggdrasil Gaming’s Vikings Go Wildis a 5-reel, 25-paylines game with an obvious theme in which Vikings battle against a sea monster. It’s the first of a trilogy and this one is all about the free spins, which you can trigger in two ways: via a treasure chest on reel 5, which could grant you coins or free spins, or via 3 or more scatters. What makes this feature interesting, and potentially  rewarding, are the Wild and Viking symbols. Each Viking that lands on the reels has a chance to turn into a Sticky Wild – the Viking symbols will try to fight off the sea creature when they land. If they succeed, it will become a Sticky Wild – if not, it remains a Viking symbol.

2. Vikings Go Berzerk
