Dead or Alive Slots

Released in May 2009 by Net Entertainment, Dead or Alive is a five reel nine payline video slot that is likely to provide casino gamers with endless hours of premium entertainment. Themed on the Wild West, the slot game features some very interesting game symbols, Wild and Scatter icons, Sticky Wilds and Free Spins round. Add to that pretty good graphics and sound effects as well as occasional animations, and you will see why Dead or Alive has been going from strength to strength.

How to play Dead or Alive

Prior to pressing spin, max bet or autoplay, it would be wise to select your total bet using bet level, bet lines and coin value options. Three matching symbols on an active payline award a payout, and make sure you also visit the paytable to learn more about game payouts and special features. Wanted Poster is Wild and this particular symbol can replace any other non-Scatter icon to form a winning combination. Meanwhile, Scatter is represented by Crossed Pistols, and players receive a payout for two or more of these in any position, while at least three Scatters trigger the Free Spins round.

Betting Options and Payouts

Even if there are only nine paylines to be activated, Dead or Alive supports a good selection of bet values, ranging from $0.01 to $18. While players can choose from six coin denominations ($0.01-$0.50), they can activate up to nine paylines and wager up to 4 coins per line or 36 coins per spin in total. Considering that you will only be wagering between 9 and 36 coins per spin, chances are you will be impressed by the payouts in the main game. Five Wanted Poster Wilds on an active payline will award up to 6,000 credits, whereas the same combination of Sheriff's Badges pays out up to 4,000 coins.

Symbols and Extra Features

Aptly designed game symbols include Sheriff's Badge, single loop holster, cowboy hat, cowboy boots, playing cards Ace, King, Queen, Jack and Ten, as well as wanted poster and crossed pistols that act as Wild and Scatter icons. Apache Kid, Belle Starr, Jesse James, Della Rose and Billy the Kid appear on wanted posters during the Free Spins round. Get two, three, four and five Crossed Pistols Scatters in any position and your total bet will be multiplied by 2x, 4x, 25x and 2,500x respectively. On top of that, you will receive 12 free spins for three or more Scatters, where all prizes are doubled. Five wanted posters appear as Stacked Wilds and they remain in place until the feature ends.

Our Verdict

Dead or Alive may feature a familiar theme that has already served as an inspiration for many a video slot, but the NetEnt game is, nonetheless, worth a mention. While game symbols and background have been nicely incorporated into the interesting storyline, casino gamers will certainly enjoy some outstanding payouts in the main game, up to 2,500x multipliers based on Scatter payouts and highly rewarding Free Spins round, where all prizes are doubled and Stacked Wilds remain in place throughout.
