Dead or Alive

Net Entertainment’s Dead or Alive slot wowed when it was launched a few years back. Even today, Dead or Alive continues to be one of the leading Wild West themed slot machine games on the net. The title only dishes out 9 paylines over its 5 reels, but that should prove to be enough to land decent wins. The slot naturally won’t allow players to mess with those paylines, so they are going to have to look at altering their coin values and the number of coins they stake per line instead. Total stakes range from 9p per spin, right up to £18 per spin on this game. None of those wagers are likely to bankrupt many players, but the 2,500-coin non-progressive jackpot just might change their lives for the good.

Special features

Wild symbols make an appearance in the base game and in free spins, although they have different features in both. In the base game, wilds appear as wanted posters, and they are also the best-paying symbols in the slot. Wilds can dish out wins up to 1,500 coins, as well as substitute for all other icons barring scatters.

Scatter symbols appear as a pair of pistols, and these symbols can deliver the aforementioned non-progressive jackpot. They can also trigger a free spins bonus round if 3 or more appear anywhere on the reels of the slot.

Bonus features

Dead or Alive’s free spins bonus promises a total of 12 free games. During those spins, any wins a player encounters will be doubled. Wilds also take on a new feature in this bonus. They become sticky wilds. Sticky wilds can replace all symbols barring scatters. If sticky wilds land on all 5 reels, the player will be rewarded with another 5 free spins. The feature can only be retriggered once, though.

Overview

If Wild West themed slots are your forte, then Dead or Alive is a must play game. It is a country mile ahead of its rivals as the most popular Western-themed slot out there on the net.
