The Dead or Alive slot got a tasteful design. The developers went for that sepia-look here, so there won’t be any pinks or bright greens and yellows here; everything is very tasteful and got that gloomy feel. Objects are intricately drawn, and it is worth checking out the details on each symbol as not all slot machine games you find in Guts’ game library got this sort of a look.
The background of the game is a beautiful landscape set in the Western USA and the theme changes to the inside of a saloon during Free Spins. The lower-paying symbols are playing cards from A to 10 while the more valuable symbols are Whiskey glasses, cowboy boots with spurs, Stetson hats, gun belts and sheriff badges. The sheriff badge pays 111x your stake if you land all 5 of them on one of the 9 fixed paylines.
The Wild is a wanted poster and as usual, it substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. The scatter is two crossed revolvers. Landing three of them will award you with 12 Free Spins, during which you get a 2x multiplier that doubles your wins!
Sticky Wild helps you during Free Spins. Here, wild symbols become sticky and stay on the reels for the duration of the entire feature. The sticky wilds are outlaws Billy the Kid, Jesse James, Della, Belle, and Apache. They also substitute for all other symbols except the scatter. Landing one or more sticky wilds during Free Spins will get you 5 additional Free Spins. The maximum number of Free Spins you may earn is 29.
Dead or Alive’s RTP is a generous 96.82%. Its volatility is high, so players typically must wait long periods of time to score big wins.
Considering that Dead or Alive is an oldie (created in 2009) it is still doing well. It is thanks to its great design, exciting features, and high potential win. Western-themed slots attract lots of punters and NetEnt created a sequel to this game, called Dead or Alive 2. Dead or Alive is an easy game to play but you’ll have to wait for the bonus features before you can expect big wins.
