Focus on Dead or Alive slot

This atmospheric slot is set within a Western town, inspired by some of the most iconic outlaws in American history including Jesse James and Billy the Kid. Although this video slot is more than a decade old it continues to hold its own thanks to its immersive Western visuals and audio.

The theoretical return to player (RTP) percentage of Dead or Alive is 96.82% which should also appeal to slot players given that anything in the 96.50% region represents a potentially solid return.

Betting Rules

The minimum wager for Dead or Alive is set at 0.09 credits per spin. This is because there are nine paylines that you can play with a minimum of 0.01 credits per line. The maximum you can bet is 18 credits per spin, covering up to two credits per payline.

Gameplay Dead or Alive slot

The gameplay of Dead or Alive is centred around triggering the Free Spins feature. Within this bonus, the mechanics of the reels change considerably. During your free games, the ‘Wanted’ poster wild becomes a sticky wild. That means whenever it lands on the reels it remains in place for the remainder of the feature.

You can also earn another five free spins for every one or more wilds that stick in place, helping you to create reels of Wanted wilds.

Winning symbols on Dead or Alive

The ‘Wanted’ poster wild symbol is the most lucrative base game symbol, aside from the gun scatter. Land five on a payline to earn 1,500x payouts. The sheriff badge is also worth 1,000x multipliers when you find five on a payline. As with most other NetEnt slots, the playing card royals (10 to Ace) are the low-value symbols.

Bonus & free spins

The Free Spins feature is the primary bonus game in the Dead or Alive slot. To enter this bonus, you must land a minimum of three gun scatter symbols anywhere on the reels during the same spin.

Once this is achieved, you will receive 12 free spins, with all wins during this feature having a 2x multiplier attached. Land five scatters anywhere during the same spin to bag a 2,500x payout before your spins begin.

Our Dead or Alive tips for Canadian players

  • It is possible to re-trigger another 12 free spins by landing three or more scatters during your initial free spins feature.
