Dead Or Alive
You’ll be grinnin’ like a weasel in a hen house when you feast your eyes on Dead or Alive – the western-themed online slot by NetEnt. The game centres around five notorious outlaws, including Belle Starr (The Bandit Queen), The Apache Kid, Jess James, Della Rose, and Billy the Kid. And, the local sheriff is on a mission to hunt them down.
You can claim the criminals’ bounty in the Free Spins Feature where you need to collect as many “WANTED” posters as possible in return for sticky wilds. There’s also a regular wild and scatter wins, plus any prizes that you pick up in the bonus game are doubled.
Why we love it
Dead or Alive gives you a taste of life in the old American west, and the eerie sound effects of creaking doors, cawing crows, barking dogs, and claps of thunder make it very atmospheric. The graphics are top-notch too, and there some nice animations are used to bring to life the rotating wind turbine, the lightning strikes in the skies, and the swinging porch lantern. The paytable symbols all use a cowboy theme, allowing you to earn prizes with items such as whisky glasses, holsters, cowboy boots, and a sheriff’s badge.
But, the most fun comes with the bonus game, where you get to round up some of history’s most famous bandits including Billy the Kid for rich rewards via the sticky wins feature. And, don’t forget, that every prize that you score throughout the Free Spins Bonus is doubled!
HOW TO PLAY DEAD OR ALIVE
- Choose from the following coin values: 0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20 or 0.50.
- You can then select from Levels 1 to 4 to play.
- To play with the maximum paylines, highest bet level, and your current coin value, select MAX BET.
- Clicking the ‘I’ button loads the paytable where you can see how much each symbol pays, and how the bonus features work.
- To spin the reels automatically 10, 25, 50, 75 or 100 times, use the Auto-Play option.
The wild symbol is the “WANTED” poster, and it can award up to 1,500 times your bet when it lands on the reels. To add to the excitement, it can also substitute for all symbols except the scatter to help you gain more winning combos. In the Free Spins Bonus, there are even more wilds on offer, so get ready to saddle up your horse and chase down those wild wins!
The pair of pistols represents the scatter symbol, and five of them anywhere in view get you a mighty 2,500 times your bet!
FREE SPINS BONUS
Three or more of the pistol symbols activate the Free Spins Bonus. Armed with twelve free games, you have the chance to lasso some sensational prizes as a 2x multiplier is applied to all winning combinations.
However, the best things about the Free Spins Bonus are that you can grab another set of free games with three, four or five scatter symbols, and the “WANTED” poster wild symbol becomes a sticky wild. There are five sticky wilds to collect – one for each of the outlaws – and they can substitute for all symbols except scatters. Sticky wilds stay on the reels throughout the bonus round, and if you manage to land one poster on each reel, you receive five extra free games.
