Sticky Symbols

Back to Guide

There’s more to online slots than you may think. While the first slots games just featured static symbols spinning on three reels, the game developers behind online slots have added new dimensions to gameplay through fascinating mechanics. Many of the latest and most popular games have Expanding Wilds, Stacked Symbols, Mega Symbols and other features to create engaging games players will enjoy. Sticky Symbols play a small, but important, role in adding to the variety of games available at Wildz. Read on to find out what this game mechanic is all about.

What are sticky symbols?

Sticky Symbols are symbols which stick to the playing area as the reels spin. In general, sticky symbols tend to be Wild symbols. Sticky symbols can be found in both main game and free spin play and are often responsible for producing big wins in a game.

Wild symbols can also become sticky symbols. Variations of the Sticky Wild include Wilds that triggered free spins remaining locked on the reels during the free spin feature, Wilds landing remaining locked for the remainder of a feature, Countdown Wilds that remain on the reels for a certain number of spins, and Sticky Wilds that remain on the reels during respins as long as winning combinations continue to be made.

This game mechanic has plenty in common with Sticky Reels, which are entire reels that lock inplace while others spin. A sticky reel may be featured as a free spins modifier locking in place for every free spin.

Sticky symbols games to play

Mystery Museum is the perfect place to track down a sticky symbol or two in an artefact-filled basement. Fire in the Hole adds an explosive dimension, with mining symbols designed to help players uncover the jewels inside a mountain’s dark tunnel. Game of Gladiators takes you right into the thrills of an ancient Roman arena and Drago Jewels of Fortune gives you a sticky encounter with a dragon or two. Bonus Bunnies are a lot fluffier than dragons, and Piggy Bank Farm is an adorable place where sticky symbols provide lots of fun and engagement.

Finding slots gameplay to enjoy

Ultimately, it’s up to each player to find a game that suits their preference. You may only enjoy cascading symbols slots, or you could be someone whose main enjoyment comes with scooping Free Spin and multipliers. Whatever you choose, there’s a slots game you can find that suits your mood, from sweet fruit-themed extravaganzas to slots that delve into ancient Norse or Greek mythology.

The game lobby at Wildz has a huge library of titles to choose from, many of which come loaded with stacked symbols, sticky reels and other features loaded with winning potential. This handy online iGaming guide can help you get started.
