Dust your boots and cowboy head, because it’s time for a ride to the Wild West where men are real men, riding on horses while the spurs on their boots betray them when entering the bar. Everybody is welcome in the Wild West, but if you by accident robbed a bank just before entering the village, be aware as bandits are wanted, Dead or Alive!
If you want to be a thief without being haunted by Lucky Luke, the cowboy who shoots faster than his shadow, I recommend the Thief video slot, because in this western themed video slot, you are wanted, and it doesn’t matter if Dead or Alive, you have a price on your head.
While the cowboys parked their Jolly Jumpers outside the bar, the beer flows and even the sheriff is having his bit of fun, the bank isn’t as safe as it looks. Bandits are on their way to disturb the peace and quietness in town. Where’s Lucky Luke when you need him or the sheriff? But by the time the locals find out their money is gone, bandits have found their way out long before the sheriff had his last sip of beer. What else then putting a prize on their heads, no matter if dead or alive.
The perfect scene for another well designed video slots offered by the many Netent Casinos featuring nothing more than nostalgic symbols so recognizable for the Wild West. Glasses of whisky, the sheriff’s badge, boots with spurs, cowboy hats and gun belts, it’s all there, spread over the five reels Dead or Alive is consisting of. Even the cheesy music coming from a deserted town, including creaking doors, the owl, tumbling weeds and a barking dog.
Dead or Alive is suitable for those players who don’t feel comfortable with high bets thanks to a minimum bet of 0.09, when all nine bet lines are activated, and a maximum bet of 18.00. Although this western themed video slot gives you the opportunity to play with 1 to 9 bet lines, I do recommend to activate them all to get the most out of this game. With four different levels to play with, responsible for your winning chances, and five coin values from 0.01 up to 0.50, you have plenty of bets to choose from.
Dead or Alive features
As Lucky Luke wasn’t there to catch the bandits, and they were nowhere to be seen, it means it’s time for the famous ‘outlaw’ poster. This same poster can’t be missed on the reels acting as Wild which can substitute for every other symbol except for the Scatter symbol.
This is only because the Scatter symbol has its own role to play in Dead or Alive responsible for Free Spins, lucrative Free Spins if you would ask me. These Free Spins will be triggered when three or more peacemaker revolver Scatters appear anywhere on the reels. During this round 12 Free Spins will be activated and all wins will be doubled.
Once Free Spins are triggered the Wild goes, well actually wild and sticky. It’s not the first time though we see this Sticky Wild since it’s very popular by the designers of Net Entertainment. We’ve seen the Sticky Wild in Lucky Angler, Crime Scene and in the Alien Robots video slot and it’s definitely a essential addition to Dead or Alive as this slot doesn’t have that many features to offer. This doesn’t mean this video slot isn’t worth playing, because I know it has been responsible for many big winners at several Netent Casinos, but yes it would have been less interesting without the Sticky Wild feature. So there is the Wild, going wild and sticky and there are the 12 Free Spins, and together they make the perfect combination for very high winnings.
Just as in the regular spins the Sticky Wilds substitutes for all other symbols. Sticky Wild symbols hold their positions on the reels for the remainder of the Free Spins left. One or more Sticky Wild symbols appearing on all the reels activate five extra Free Spins, keeping the Sticky Wild symbols from the triggering Free Spins session.
Dead or Alive
If you are looking for a video slot with extra features such as Sticky Wilds, famous for their chance of big winnings, you are at the right place with Dead or Alive. Who cares if the bandits get busted, as long as the reels spin, the Wilds fly around instead of bullets, you will be a very lucky player anyway. And if all works out pretty well, you will be awarded big, without haunting for some bad guys, but just by relaxing with one of the most nostalgic video slots Netent created.
