In 2019 NetEnt teamed up with the famous slot spinner LetsGiveitaSpin to develop the video slot Dead or Alive 2. NetEnt teamed up with the well-known slot spinner to get insights and live feedback on what players would want from a new game. The slot comes with a RTP of 96.82% and is considered a high volatile slot with a chance of winning up to more than 100,000 times the initial bet placed.
Dead or Alive 2 Theme
The game is a 5-reel, 3-row video slot that comes with scatter wins, sticky wilds, wilds and three different free spins games: Old Saloon, High Noon Saloon and Train Heist. The game is taking place in the good old west with a cowboy theme.
The symbols are cards from 10-A in an old school look, and premium symbols of alcohol bottles, cowboy boots, a cowboy hat, a revolver and the sheriff star as the highest paying symbol. Besides the normal symbols there’s also a total of 5 different looking wilds, that substitute all symbols except for scatters.
The last symbol is a scatter symbol with two revolvers, a dead animal head and the text “SCATTER” written on it.
Dead or Alive 2 Bonuses
To get a bonus on Dead or Alive 2, three or more scatters is needed in the main game. When the bonus is obtained, the player is given the option to choose between three different types of bonuses. Each bonus comes with different features and different volatility. All three bonuses start with 12 spins no matter the amount of scatters spun in to get the bonus.
Train Heist Free Spins Bonus
The train heist bonus is the bonus on Dead or alive 2 with the lowest volatility. This bonus comes with a multiplier which starts at 1. Each time a wild symbol lands anywhere on the reels the multiplier increases by 1 and an additional free spin is awarded.
If the multiplier reaches 16x the player is awarded an additional 5 spins in addition to the usual 1 free spin which is added.
Old Saloon Free Spins Bonus
The old saloon bonus feature is the medium volatility bonus on Dead or Alive 2, and it comes with a multiplier of 2x on all wins. If a sticky wild appears on any of the reels, the player will get an additional 5 extra free spins, and if 2 wild symbols appear on the same reel, they’ll be transformed into multiplier wilds.
High Noon Free Spins Bonus
The High Noon bonus is the bonus with the highest volatility, and therefore the most risky bonus. The bonus comes with no multiplier to start with, but all wilds are sticky. If two wilds land on the same reel, they’ll both be upgraded to a 2x wild, and if three wilds land on the same reel they’ll be upgraded to a 3x wild. They don’t have to land on the reel in the same spin.
When multiplier wilds are part of a winning connection, they multiply each other. This means a line with a 2x and a 3x wild would end up being 6x instead.
If a player manages to get a wild on each of the reels, an additional 5 free spins is awarded.
Dead or Alive 2 Scatter Wins
On Dead or Alive 2 scatters alone can give huge payouts, before a bonus even starts. The scatters pays back depending on the amount of scatter spun in, and can pay up to 2500x of the initial bet made.
