Review of Dead or Alive

Yeee Haww, strap on your cowboy boots, sling your rodeo hat on and let’s go on a NetEnt western adventure. Are you dead, or are you alive? It’s time to decide as you play this wild west video slot, but just make sure that you don’t drink too much in the ol’ saloon because we’ve got work to do! This slot game features an assortment of symbols that are in the shape of cowboy boots, cowboy hats, pistols, whiskey glasses and wanted posters.

It replicates what the wild west would genuinely feel like as if we could time travel for just a few hours. If this isn’t an action packed video slot then we don’t know what is, because if there is one thing that NetEnt knows how to do, and do well, it is western themed slot games. These symbols represent Free Spins, Scatter symbols, Wild symbols and even Sticky Wild symbols! You’re in for a real treat in this western crime inspired video slot. Let’s find those wanted outlaws!

How to Play

Based in the deserted and dangerous wild wild west, this video slot features 5 reels and 9 paylines. Something that really stands out about Dead or Alive is how authentic the symbols and in-game elements are. For example the music and the sound effects create a perfect base for the slot game, and if it wasn’t for having this, I think it would have been a completely different look and feel.

Giving you only 9 ways in which you can win, but don’t shoot yourself in the foot just yet because there are tons of fantastic Bonus features and Special features included in the slot game Dead or Alive. However, before you start shooting your pistols (spinning the reels) you will need to adjust your bet, you can do so at the bottom left of the game grid. The minimum bet you can make is £0.09, and the maximum is £18. After making your bet selection, you can go ahead and unleash your spinning techniques. Keep in mind that you are free to alter your betting limits throughout the game, however during Special features and Bonus features this is not allowed.

Sticky Wild Symbols

During Free Spins in Dead or Alive, Wild symbols turn into Sticky Wild symbols. This feels like a little Bonus to the already very rewarding Free Spins feature. The Wild symbols in this game are a wanted poster, so keep your eyes peeled for these to show up on your screen.

They hold their positions on the reels for the remainder of the Free Spins session. If one or more Sticky Wild symbol appears on the reels, it will activate 5 extra Free Spins. Keep in mind that the Free Spins feature begins without any Sticky Wilds, they will appear during the feature. Another exciting element is that Free Spins can be re-triggered once per Free Spin session!

Free Spins

Most of our favourite slot games include a Free Spins feature, this is an element in slots which we believe keeps us going. It’s something to look forward to because who doesn’t enjoy having a few spins for free and amping up your coin win? The Free Spins feature is triggered by 3 or more of the Dead or Alive pistol symbols being present anywhere across your reels. If you manage to trigger the Free Spins feature, they are played at the same bet level, and coin value as the round which had activated Free Spins.

Every win from the Free Spin feature including re-triggered Free Spins will give a multiplier of x2 on your win. Three or more Free Spin symbols appearing anywhere on the reels will activate 12 Free Spins, and at the end of the Free Spins feature the total win will be added to any wins from the round where you had activated the Free Spins feature. The Sticky Wild feature can prove to be very exciting for us players when combined with the Free Spins feature because you can win a maximum of £54,000, and this can be done if you manage to win with lots of Sticky Wilds on the reels.

For a wild west slot game, Dead or Alive is fantastic. If you are someone who enjoys spinning the reels to a theme as such, then you need to give it a go. NetEnt outdid themselves this time, especially with the graphics and the Free Spins Bonus round, there is a lot to enjoy. It’s a perfect game for low rollers, those who don’t really want to spend too much, but just to try it out. And you never know what might happen when you start spinning those reels, you may just end up leaving the game with loot worth £54,000!
