Dead or Alive: An Introduction
This is actually one of the older NetEnt slots at Madame Chance Casino. It has been kicking around for a few years now. However, Dead or Alive has gone through somewhat of a resurgence as of late. This is all down to the fact that it has been released for mobile devices too. Basically, this already popular slot is going to get even more popular.
Dead or Alive Slot Stats
It was released at the tail end of 2016 on mobile devices. Dead or Alive, however, was released way before that for desktop computers.
There are 5 reels and 9 paylines on this slot, which actually brings the game more in line with the fruit machines that you find in arcades as opposed to most of the other slots that you find online. This is fine, in my opinion. I always love it when my games are a little bit different.
The house edge on Dead or Alive is 3.2%. This is a medium to high volatility slot which means that you will not be getting that much in the way of regular wins. When the wins do pop up, however, they are quite substantial.
The minimum bet per spin is 9p. The maximum is £18. This makes it one of the cheaper NetEnt slots to play at both the low end and the upper end of the market.
Dead or Alive Slot Theme
The theme of Dead or Alive is old westerns. Basically, when you play this slot you will be heading into the wild west. As I mentioned previously; this is one of the older slots on the market so you can’t expect to be blown away by the theming of the game. It looks fantastic, but there are no heavy animations and the like. It is just a well-drawn game with some amazing imagery. Although, to be honest this is not something that I am going to complain too much about. In recent games from all video slot manufacturers, they seem to have focused more on the aesthetics of the game as opposed to actually trying to make the game seem fun. I love the ‘back to the basics’ approach that Dead or Alive brings to the table.
There are three features that you will be encountering quite a bit as you play Dead or Alive. Obviously, the main feature is going to come in the way of your wilds. The wilds are your wanted posters and they will appear on just about every spin. As with all other wilds, they will act as a replacement for other symbols in the game. When you trigger the free spins mode, the wilds that appear will appear as stickies so you can get some top wins.
If you get 2 scatters on the reels, you will be given a cash payout. If you are lucky enough to get three of them, which is quite hard and may take several dozen spins before you get there, you will be given free spins.
During the free spins mode, you will be given 12 free spins. All of your wins are going to be doubled during this game mode. As I mentioned previously; your wilds are also going to be sticky wilds. This is quite nifty because when they are stuck in place, your wins on each spin are likely going to get higher and higher.
If you are lucky enough to get 5 wilds when you play the free spins, then you will get 5 more free spins. Yes. Those symbols are going to remain stuck in place!
Since this is a medium to high volatility slot, I would normally recommend that you do not bet too high otherwise you will blow through your bank account quite quickly. However, honestly, this slot has such a low minimum buy-in, that you may as well bet around the 20p per spin mark. This is not going to set you back too much, and it will make it much easier for you to secure the bigger wins.
If you want to check out Dead or Alive, then you will need to head to any site which offers NetEnt slots. Thankfully, these should not be that difficult to find!
