The Dead or Alive slot is a 5 reel, 9 payline game powered by Net Entertainment. The theme is a Wild West one which features the most prolific outlaws of all time such as Billy the Kid and Jesse James. This game is considered a classic by slot lovers due to the potential of huge wins. You can play, on all devices, from just 9p a spin to £18 a spin.

The game has a Free Spins feature (like most NetEnt slots) which is triggered by obtaining 3 or more Guns symbols anywhere across the reels simultaneously. You will then receive 12 free spins with all wins doubled (a 2x multiplier). A cash prize is awarded before you play – this is dependent on how many Guns scatters you get to trigger the feature. The cash prize ranges from 4 times your stake to 2,500 times your stake!

What makes the Free Spins feature appealing is the Sticky Wild feature – the Wanted Poster is the wild symbol and will become a sticky wild during the feature. This means they will remain in position on the reels for the whole free spins feature.

1 or more sticky wild symbols will also give you an additional 5 free spins. You can also retrigger the feature if you get 3 or more Guns symbols on the reels. If you’re lucky, you can get a whopping 29 free spins with a 2x multiplier. Combine that with sticky wilds and you can win some huge amounts.

You can win a huge 3,000 times your stake on each free spin – this can be achieved by getting lots of sticky wilds. I’ve got 4 sticky wilds before and won just shy of 2,000 times my stake – that was a good day! Dead or Alive needs to be treated with respect though – triggering the Free Spins feature will be hard meaning it can eat up your bankroll if you’re not careful. When it pays, it will pay well but it won’t happen often.

As mentioned, Dead or Alive has achieved cult status and rightly so – if you like the Wild West theme, you have Quickspin’s Sticky Bandits as well as Playtech’s Heart of the Frontier.
