Dead or Alive
Dead or Alive slot game review
Dead or Alive is an old, classic online casino slot from game provider Netent. The western inspired game have seen some insane Mega wins accumulated for players through time. It is not a game for the weak hearted, but if you´re ready to handle a loss for the possibility of a huge reward this is the game for you!
Free Spins on Dead or Alive
The sole purpose of Dead or Alive is to enter the Free Spin bonus which is done by having 3 or more Scatter symbols in the shape of a retro western revolver. Regardless if you get 5 or 3 symbols you will win 12 Free Spins in which the Free Spin bonus exclusive Sticky Wilds feature is activated.
All wins during the Free spin mode are paid out x2.
There are 5 wanted bandits who pose as wilds in the Free Spins mode: Billy, Belle, Jesse, Della and Apache. Each of the bandits have their own reel where they can appear several times. Once one is found during the Free Spins, the bandit will remain as a sticky wild for the remainder of the spins and substitute for all symbols except the Scatter symbol.
As always, you want to Catch 'Em All.
Re-triggering Free Spins
The experienced online slot cowboy playing Dead or Alive knows that for maximum bounty a bit of luck is required in order to find all the wanted bandits before the 12 initial Free Spins have finished. By having at least one each of the five wild bandits an additional 5 Free Spins will be triggered.
This is a rare occasion, but one well worth waiting for! Having collected all 5 wild bandits means that there's probably some crazy winning lines lined up with wilds, best case scenario you have one or more full bet lines with five staggered wilds and can cash in 1500x the bet per SPIN.
Bet level and win lines
There are only 9 bet lines in Dead or Alive which can be frustrating for those used to play slot machines with the more common 20 bet line setup.
This can make the main game of Dead or Alive a bit boring due to the lack of winnings, hence take your time to review the different bet line structures to avoid unnecessary game-play disappointments and rest assured the lack of bet lines does not matter should you collect a few wilds in the Free Spin bonus mode.
Is this game for me?
Are you a daredevil slot player? Then yes! Dead or Alive should only be played if you are solely looking for the Mega Big Win and have set your expectations straight that you probably won't hit the big time win during your first session in front of the slot, but if you do it´ll be one of the best wins in the world.
Some other high risk, high reward kind of games we can recommend Reel Steal, Winter Berries and Second Strike.
