dead or alive slot review

Live life on the edge in hot slot Dead or Alive!

Ah, the old Wild West, a time when men were men and grey areas were outlawed. Life was harsh in those days; you were either swimming in gold or hanging from a gallows pole. Anything in-between was just underachieving!

It’s no surprise then that in this world of extremes, we find Dead or Alive slot, a 5-reel, 9-payline Western-style slot game. Dead or Alive boasts an RTP of 96.8% and high volatility. It means that if you hunker down and bide your time, you could score that big win!

If money be the food of love, play on

Stuffed with cowboy-themed symbols (hats, whiskey glasses, sheriff’s badges and gun belts), Dead or Alive is given further credibility from authentic sound effects, such as a cracking whip each time you choose an option and a gun loading before spins.

The design of the game adheres loyally to the theme, and you’ll see windmills, stark table-top mountains, porch lights swinging in the breeze and random bolts of lightning cracking the somber sky.

The game controls sit atop a picket fence and are pretty self-explanatory. Well, all except for the “Feature Preview”. This is just a hint at how the reels spin and the paylines work… not sure that this is really necessary, but hey.

Walk on the Wild Side

The Wild is a wanted poster, and it substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter. The Scatter comes in the form of crossed six-guns and ammo. The paylines are shown by some numbers on boards hanging off the reel frame.

Land 3 Scatters anywhere on the reels and you’ll trigger no less than 12 Free Spins. True to their nature, Sticky Wilds will stay where they are until the Free Spin session is over. It is possible to re-trigger the Free Spins but you can do this only once, though. Happily, the Sticky Wilds don’t move during the re-triggering.

If, during Free Spins, you get one or more Sticky Wild symbols on any of the reels, it will activate 5 extra Free Spins. Only the highest win per payline will be paid out.
