The Wild West has always inspired people to create movies, books and comics themed around crazy adventures, train robberies, and courageous cowboys. Even the gambling industry couldn’t resist the charm of the Wild West. As a result, we can enjoy a bunch of games dedicated to this topic, including the freshly-released Dead or Alive slot. Produced by the famed NetEnt, the app is already available in major online casinos.
The slot machine features 5 reels, each having three symbols. This brings the total number of symbols to 15.
A player can set the bet size by selecting the level (1 through 4). Like in many NetEnt titles, you can’t select the number of active paylines in the Dead or Alive slot. Every time you start the reels, you spin all the available paylines. This ensures the maximum winning chances in each spin. In Dead or Alive, the highest payout amounts to 54,000 coins.
According to NetEnt, the slot RTP is at 96.8%. This is a very high value that makes Dead or Alive a profitable slot to play!
The reels display the telltale items typical of the Wild West – bottle of whiskey, cowboy boots and hat, sheriff badge, and pistols. Wait a minute! What’s Wild West without gambling games? While spinning the reels, you’ll be seeing card symbols as well.
Although lucky combinations made of regular symbols come up pretty often, they have modest multipliers ranging between х25 and х100. To get juicier payouts, you need to land a combination consisting of the special symbols. For example, a Whisky symbol is worth up to 200 coins, while the Sheriff Badge icon pays with 1,000 coins.
Now let’s take a look at bonus symbols. In Dead or Alive, they seem to burst with money prizes! The Wild symbol is the iconic Wanted poster. This image can substitute for any symbols (except for Scatter), forming paid combinations for you. On top of that, Wild creates its own combinations. Three, four and five Wilds on the reels come with х25, х150 and х1500 multipliers, respectively. During the Free Spins, you have a chance to benefit from Sticky Wilds. They remain locked on the reels till the Free Spins are over.
Scatter is another bonus symbol that can pour money into your pocket. The Scatter symbol is Two Pistols. Thanks to Scatter, you can get 12 free spins that come with x2 multiplier. If luck smiles upon you, you have a chance to retrigger free spins!
Keep your eyes peeled for several consecutive Scatters on the reels. Five Scatters will increase your bet by 2,500 times!
In Dead or Alive, the control panel is exactly the same as in other titles by NetEnt. You can change the bet size, start the Auto Play mode, or place the maximum bet. By clicking the i icon, you’ll open the payout table that displays multipliers for each winning combination. To open the Extended Settings window, click the nut wrench icon. The button with arrows in the middle starts the reels.
