Sticky Reels

Back to Guide

Engagement, entertainment and fun come in many different forms in online slots games. Developers are always on the lookout for interesting mechanics (or combinations of them) that will provide the kinds of experiences players are looking for. Expanding Wilds, Stacked Symbols, Mega Symbols and other features help to drive interest in games, apart from the fascinating themes, of course. Sticky Reels are a feature available in selected slots games that add to the gameplay, take a closer look at how some of these are presented at Wildz.

What are sticky reels?

Sticky Reels are reels which lock in place while the others are spun. This can occur under a variety of conditions. In a game like Starburst, a Wild symbol on the centre reel will expand and that reel will remain locked in place for a respin. In other games, a sticky reel may be featured as a free spins modifier locking in place for every free spin.

To recap: one or more reels carry over to the next spin and remain in place while all other reels spin as they do in a typical round. The round being played influences the nature of the sticky reel.

Sticky Reels games to enjoy

The sheer range of sticky reels slots is almost as broad as the imagination can go, from adventure to food. Quickspin’s Sakura Fortune is a superb game featuring cherry blossoms floating gently around to create a calming atmosphere. A fighting favourite is Dead or Alive that appears simple at first glance, before revealing a highly engaging game that keeps players coming back. Erik the Red from Relax Gaming is a sticky reels slot with a fiery Norse theme, while Punk Rocker from NoLimit City brings a gritty, urban space to life. PG Soft’s Medusa taps into ancient mythology, again proving that sticky reels can be added to just about any slots theme to great effect.

Keeping things interesting

Some other Grid Play games feature symbols appearing in stacks that fall from above the playing area rather than spinning on reels. These cascading symbols-styled games often feature respin options where winning combinations are cleared from the board and new symbols fall from above to fill the voids. Multiple respins can often be won and many titles feature progressive multipliers in conjunction with the respins. Free Spin rounds may result from these combinations too, with potentially lucrative wins building up. There’s almost no limit to the inventive nature of slots designers.

Discover a full range of games to choose from in the game lobby at Wildz, many of which come loaded with stacked symbols, sticky reels and other features loaded with winning potential. This handy online guide can help you get started.
