An old NetEnt online slot that made it’s way to mobile casino screens years later, but for good reasons: the Dead or Alive mobile slot has some thrilling free spins shoot outs.
You get a ‘full guns at dawn’ scenario when playing the Western themed Dead or Alive slot.
With Stetsons, cowboy boots, the iconic Golden Sheriff badges, and wanted outlaw posters covering the 5 reels, this 9 payline machine might be simple but it hides big wins.
Old it might be, but it certainly hasn’t lost it’s charm.
This Net Entertainment game now joins the likes of the IGT Western Belles slot and the Playtech John Wayne game in giving you the real deal experience of what it’s like to spin in the wild, wild, west.
This Dead or Alive slot game plays like a low variance game, where you get plenty of lower paying base game and scatter wins throughout, keeping the action flowing nicely.
However, given the amounts you stand to win in the free spin games, this slot western is definitely closer to the medium to high variance scale.
Which is great for those looking to win big and play a little riskier, but not a dangerous as the likes of the Play’n GO Royal Masquerade slot, for example.
That’s mostly due to the return to player rate of 96.8%, which high for a volatile game.
Did we forget to mention that the Dead or Alive free spins also come with multipliers? Find three or more of those gun scatters in the base game and you’ll get free spin games where all your wins are doubled.
But a 2x multiplier isn’t enough to get those big wins. Oh no. Those come thank to the sticky wilds which once found stay in place throughout the rest of the free games. Find five different ones across the reels of all the outlaws, and you’ll get 5 more free spins.
This is where the potential for truly heart pounding big wins begins. You see those wilds start to stack up providing 4 and 5 of kind win after win, and that 2x multiplier doubling it all.
We’ve gotten over 200x our bet here, and that’s not at the high end of what we’ve seen other achieve.
Of course, there’s no guarantees in the Wild Wild West. But if you come out alive, you’ll be sipping on fine whiskey for the rest of your days.
