Play the Dead or Alive Slot in Demo Mode
Welcome to the Wild West where the frontier is the way of life, the code of honour is the only real justice system, and outlaws are the true heroes. Well, since we cannot go back to the 19th-century American West, NetEnt are giving us the chance to experience it in a timeless slot machine.
Dead or Alive in Real Money Mode
This NetEnt slot has 5 reels, 3 rows, and 9 selectable paylines. It’s a high variance game, which means that you could stake as little as £0.09 or as much as £18 per spin. It has a Wild West theme, so you should expect an upclose and personal encounters with some of the notorious outlaws of the time, such as Billy the Kid, Jesse James, and Belle Starr. There are cool frontier-related images, such as a sheriff badge, cowboy boots and hat, whiskey glasses, a belt, guns, and a Wanted poster.
The game might seem rather simple at first because of the 9 paylines and the corresponding paytable promising modest monetary rewards might mistakenly make you underestimate it. However, the slot will surprise you with frequent, albeit small, wins. Keep the reels spinning and you’ll see your bankroll increase. For example, you could easily come away with a win of £225 for the minimum wager of £0.09 per spin if you land five scatters. That’s a truly impressive payout and one of the reasons this slot is so popular with players.
The Free Spins & Sticky Wilds Features
Sticky Wilds Feature: This is the first of two exciting features to look forward to when you’re playing this slot machine by Net Entertainment. The Wanted poster is the Wild, which substitutes for any symbol, except the Scatter. Moreover, in the free spins, the Wild becomes sticky. That means that if you land it will remain on the reel till the end of the free spins. Also, one or more of the Sticky Wild symbols will trigger 5 free spins.
Free Spins Feature: The second special feature is even more alluring. It has to do with the Scatter symbols. A pair of Guns is the Scatter in this game. Land three or more of these and they will trigger 12 free spins with a x2 multiplier. If doubling your winnings from 12 free spins doesn’t sound cool enough, note this. You will also receive cash in the amount ranging from 4 times your stake (in the case of landing 3 scatters) to 2,500 times your stake (when you have 5 scatters) and that’s even before you start the feature.
Is It Available for Mobiles?
Unfortunately, this awesome game is not available to be played on a mobile device. That’s probably because it was released back in 2009. That is, indeed, a pity because a version optimised for mobile devices, such as smartphones and iPads, would have given slot lovers the opportunity to bring a little of the frontier justice to their everyday life, which, admittedly, is often a little on the boring side. So, let’s hope we’ll get a mobile version as well.
The Slot Compared to Others
Though there are quite a number of slot machines dedicated to ancient times in general, and ancient Rome and Egypt in particular, those that pay respect to the American West are not that many. One of the reasons for that is that the slot machine we’re reviewing here has managed to raise the bar high and grab the hearts of slot fans in a way that no other has managed. It has an unbelievably low minimum betting limit and yet it is quite capable of a great return.
