The wait is over – NetEnt have finally announced the sequel to one of their most iconic slots around. Following on from its 2009 predecessor, Dead or Alive 2 comes packed full of features with free spins, win multipliers and sticky wilds up for grabs in one of the most volatile slots around. You can play Dead or Alive 2 across all desktop, mobile and tablet platforms from 9p to £9 per spin. Can it live up to the original’s legendary status?
Set back in the Old West, Dead or Alive 2 revolves around infamous outlaws Apache the Kid, Della Rose, Jesse James, Belle Star and Billy the Kid. In line with this popular theme, you’ll find cowboy boots, guns, whiskey bottles, cowboy hats and sheriff badges on the reels, along with lower value A, K, Q, J and 10 playing cards in Old Western style. Keep an eye out for the sheriff badges, with 5 of those symbols across a payline rewarding you with 100x your bet!
On the reels, you’ll also see the 5 aforementioned outlaws and they all act as a wild on their respective reel – Apache the Kid appears on reel 1, Della Rose appears on reel 2, Jesse James appears on reel 3, Belle Star appears on reel 4 and Billy the Kid appears on reel 5. The wilds replace all symbols expect for the scatter and can payout 166.66x your stake if you find all 5 across a payline.
The scatter symbol – depicted by a bull skull and two revolvers – is your pathway to Dead or Alive 2’s 3 free spins bonus rounds. Find 3 of the scatters in combination anywhere on the reels and you’ll be rewarded with an initial 12 free spins and a choice of the Train Heist Free Spins feature, the Old Saloon Free Spins feature and the High Noon Saloon Free Spins feature. Landing 5 of the scatter symbols will also see you pocket a cool 2,500x your bet.
The Train Heist Free Spins feature is all about the increasing multiplier and is the lowest variance option of the 3. Every time a wild lands on the reels, the multiplier increases by 1 and also gives you an extra free spin. Should the multiplier meter reach 16x, 5 more free spins will be added to your total.
For loyal fans of Dead or Alive, the medium variance Old Saloon Free Spins feature will have a familiar feel to it. Just like the original game, all wins are boosted by a 2x multiplier while landing all 5 of the wild outlaws in combination gives you an additional 5 free spins. Achieving this feat is made marginally easier by the fact all the wilds are sticky, meaning they are locked in position throughout the bonus round.
And the High Noon Saloon Free Spins feature – the most volatile option on offer – makes use of NetEnt’s famous MAX concept and gives you the potential of an astronomical 100,000x your stake – one of the biggest casino slot payouts on the web! As per its predecessor, the sticky wilds come with 2x and 3x multipliers. But this time, should you be lucky enough to get more than 1 of the wilds, they are multiplied by each other’s value! Just like the Old Saloon Free Spins feature, an extra 5 free spins are up for grabs if you land 5 of the wild outlaws across a payline.
NetEnt have certainly done Dead or Alive justice here by effortlessly merging the original with its long-awaited sequel. Not only have the graphics and animations drastically improved (to be expected after 10 years), but they’ve also taken the gameplay and volatility to a completely new level. Despite a number of obvious and necessary upgrades, NetEnt have stuck by the industry standard RTP of 96.8%, the same 5-reel, 9-payline set up as well as the popular Old Saloon Free Spins feature.
