Dead or Alive Slot Machine Highly rated free spins bonus with locking wilds Choice of stakes to suit most budgets A well designed NetEnt slot …
Dead or Alive slot machine is a 2009 NetEnt title that has achieved cult status since, and it remains one of the best slot games and a staple product of any NetEnt casino. It features a free spins bonus that’s both exciting to play and very rewarding, a very good theme that stands the test of time, and a decent payout. It’s a wild west themed slot centered around five fugitives from the law, and you’ll get acquainted with them during the free spins bonus where each of them will become a Sticky Wild.
Minimum bet per line is £0.01 and since you can choose to bet on one line only, this is also a minimum bet. The minimum that covers all 9 paylines is £0.09 and the maximum bet per spin is only £18. This means the slot isn’t too popular among high rollers, though many players will invest a couple of thousand into an extended Dead or Alive slot machine session with a maximum bet. That’s the way to play this game, as you need to give yourself a chance to reach a big win during the bonus game.
Graphics on the Dead or Alive slot machine are good, the artwork suits the wild west theme perfectly. The five main symbols are Sheriff Badge, Gun, Hat, Boots and Whiskey, the other five symbols are the usual card symbols. Two Guns is the Scatter symbol, and three or more trigger 12 free spins. During the free spins all wins are doubled, and the free spins can be re-triggered, but only once. Sticky Wild symbols hold their positions on the reels for the remainder of the free spins session. If you get one or more Sticky Wilds on each of the five reels, you’ll activate +5 free spins.
The free spins game isn’t necessarily rewarding but it does have huge potential. If you aren’t lucky with getting enough Sticky Wilds you may leave the game empty-handed, and the game will mean something only if you pile up those Sticky Wilds quickly, and especially if you manage to get those +5 free spins. The maximum win during free spins is £54,000. There are many Dead or Alive slot machine videos on YouTube which show the potential this slot has.
Theoretical return to player (RTP) of the Dead or Alive slot machine is 96.80%, which is very nice for such a fun game, and it means players can play it both for fun and for making money. The slot can be played comfortably with only £1000 with a maximum bet on every spin if you’re lucky enough to trigger the bonus game often.
The slot remains one of the most popular NetEnt slots, though it doesn’t really pay that well as there’s no big jackpot to look forward to and the base game doesn’t pay well at all. All that’s left is the bonus, which at times pays well but often leaves you without a significant win. This is a difficult slot to win, yet so many players play it for hours at a time, waiting for that big money during the free spins bonus.
