Following on from their original Dead or Alive slot game, NetEnt have provided players with the second instalment of the hugely popular title.
This Dead or Alive 2 slot game review will give readers everything they need to know to ensure they come out of this game alive and with the knowledge needed to try and escape with some great rewards!
Dead or Alive 2 slot game features a five-reel, 3-row grid that features 9 fixed paylines in which players need to form winning combinations of between three and five matching icons. Players can make a bet from as little as R0.09 per spin, whereas those that want to bet a little bigger will be able to place a maximum of R9 per spin.
NetEnt have continued to make the game experience felt when playing this slot game as seamless as possible via the use of the customisable buttons that are available on the game panel at the bottom of the screen.
The control panel features functions such as the ability to change the bet levels and the coin value, whilst the ‘Autoplay’ and ‘Max Bet’ buttons continue to make an appearance either side of the ‘Spin’ button that is located centrally on the panel.
When taking a look at the paytable for this Dead or Alive 2 review, we found that there were a number of icons that can fit the themes that the developer has looked to try and adopt. Royal playing card figures – 10, J, Q, K and A – all appear, and these are followed up by the arrival of a bottle of alcohol, some cowboy boots, a pistol and its holder, a hat and a sheriff’s badge.
The Wilds that feature within this slot – and in the Dead or Alive 2 Free Play version at the top of this page – include the old gang members of the first slot game, with Jesse James, the Apache Kid, Delia Rose, Billy the Kid and Belle Starr all making an appearance with some great animations.
The Dead or Alive 2 bonus features available in this game are a nice touch by NetEnt as they provide some variety to the overall slot game experience.
When players manage to land three Scatters or more on the grid, with the double pistol icon representing the Scatter, they will be able to choose from the following three bonus games – each come equipped with 12 free spins.
‘Old Saloon’ is a free spins feature that has sticky Wilds, win multipliers of 2x and 3x the bet, as well as a reward of five free spins when at least one Wild lands on each reel.
‘High Noon Saloon’ is the most volatile feature of this slot game and includes sticky multiplier Wilds that can go as high as 15x the bet when anything above 1x multiplier is hit on the same reel. Five free spins are also awarded in the same way that they are in the ‘Old Saloon’ game.
The ‘Train Heist’ is the last feature and provides a progressive win multiplier.
RTP (return to player)
Our Dead or Alive 2 review managed to find that the slot game has a return to player (RTP) rate of 96.8%. However, it is important to note that NetEnt have split this percentage rate between the base game and the addition of the free spins feature. 68.6% is the base game, whereas the free spins feature is set at 28.2%, which means the free spins feature can be rather hard to obtain a winner.
