Dead or Alive from NetEnt: Slot Review - into the wild west we go!

GamingRevolution has tested one of NetEnt's most popular games of the market. This high variance slot game provides the potential for high wins, and comes with impressive graphics.

NetEnt’s Dead or Alive can truly call itself a classic. The 5-reel and 9 payline slot game greets players with a Wild West theme and features cult outlaws, including Billy the Kid and Jesse James. Wild West themes are always popular. However, the fact that this slot game is a high variance game, and offers the potential of huge wins, sure helps.

Special Features

Like most NetEnt slot games, Dead or Alive has a free spins feature. Upon receiving three gun symbols, anywhere across the reel at the same time, free spins are triggered. Every win within the 12 free spins is doubled, making this feature slightly superior to the standard version in conventional slot games. Even, a cash prize is awarded before a player embarks on his free spin round. This cash prize depends on a number of gun symbols received and can amount to 2.500 times your stake.

Furthermore, the wanted poster forms a sticky wild. During free spins round, this wild will remain on the reel. The more of these, the merrier: the feature can be retriggered if you receive three or more gun symbols. In fact, players can win £54.000 with this free spins feature.

Theme and Graphics

The graphics are neither too funky nor too simplistic, making this game's look and feel easy on the eye, and due to good sound effects also pleasant on the ear.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

Be careful. This game can be potentially so profitable, that it’s easy to keep playing without making any real progress. The sticky wins feature, coupled with the free spins feature, multiplies wins. With relatively low coin amounts and bet levels, I tend to adjust mine so, that not too much of my casino fund is drained per spin. Yet, should I hit free spins, my stake is good enough to get the most out of the multiplier.

Our Verdict on Dead or Alive

Dead or Alive ? Definitely, the answers is ALIVE. This slot machine is bubbly, fun and makes for exciting gameplay.
