Dead or Alive II Slot
NetEnt made quite and impact when its original Dead or Alive slot moseyed into our town a few years back. Its mean looking gunslinger is still regularly challenged to a duel by Neon Jackpot’s online slot community, but now he’s back with a gang in tow and if reel entertainment is your goal they look like they mean business.
ABOUT DEAD OR ALIVE II
Sticking to its guns, NetEnt has given this sequel the nine payline and five-reel format of its original title but with a little makeover that brings a more serious feel to this gaming saloon. For its regular symbols, the reel residents are five Royals (from 10 to A) with a whiskey bottle, cowboy boots, cowboy hat, pistol and sheriff’s badge offering the higher rewards when they show up on the paylines. Top of the paytable ranking is this game’s Wild symbol, which comes to town as five different characters. All work as a team, and all can substitute for any other symbol except the Scatters that unlock the real, and indeed reel, reason for original Dead or Alive fans to saddle up a session on this sequel slot.
FREE SPINS BONUS FEATURES
In traditional style, the presence of three or more Scatter Symbols in view on any base game spin brings you the bonus reward of free spins, but with Dead or Alive II you’ll find a trio of possible challenges await. One is awarded on each trigger event and each has a different spin to bring to your bonus battle.
- Old Saloon Free Spins – this option brings the classic style of the original Dead or Alive’s free spin feature to town. Twelve free spins are on the clock, with all wins doubled. Better yet, all Wilds act as Sticky Wilds during the feature, and should you land at least one Sticky Wild on every reel during the bonus you’ll rack up and extra five spins for your trouble.
- High Noon Saloon Free Spins – This has all the benefits of the Old Saloon bonus, but if you land two or three Sticky Wilds on a single reel during your free ride, they will transform to become Double and Triple Multiplier Wilds respectively.
- Train Heist Free Spins – this shakes up your basic twelve free spins a bit, with the inclusion of a Multiplier Meter into the action. Wilds don’t work as Sticky Wilds in this bonus, however whenever a Wild lands in view that multiplier meter is jacked up on level. If luck helps you push the meter to x16 before the bonus ends, you’ll blast another five free spins onto the clock. Thereafter any further appearances of Wilds will earn you one more free spin and still keep escalating the Multiplier Meter too!
NetEnt has wisely kept all the core vibe and values of the original Dead or Alive in this sequel, but added a dash of extra firepower to its arsenal of entertainment. It’s quick on the draw in the base game, and with the two new free spins features to explore we suspect a whole posse of slot slingers are going to be gunning to be the new sheriff in town on these five fine reels.
