Dead or Alive Video Slot an Old West-Themed Video Slot from Net Entertainment
Dead or Alive is a five-reel video slot with nine (9) non-fixed paylines featuring Old West-themed icons. The overall visual appeal of this video slot appears to have been conceptualized with the male slot players in mind.
The high paying icons and the special symbols depict a significant part of the 19th century Mid-West. A time when frontier lawmen like Doc Holiday, Wyatt Earp and Wild Bill Hickok were instrumental in bringing law and order to the Old West. Even the color palette used for the graphic illustration is typically masculine; brown, gray, silver and some tinge of gold as accent.
The main attraction of this Net Entertainment video slot is the Free-Spins Game in which the Wild has greater capabilities as a win-boosting game feature.
Dead or Alive Wanted Poster Wild Symbol
The Wanted Poster is iconic of the Old West during the height of lawlessness. The image serves as the Wild Symbol of this Net Entertainment real money slot game. In the base game, the Wanted Poster Wild Symbol performs its usual, regular-icon substitution tricks to help players create payline wins.
In the Free-Spins Bonus Game, Wanted Poster Wilds that appear during a set of free games become Sticky Wilds. This means the Wanted Poster stays stuck to its reel position throughout the duration of the free-spins session.
This also denotes that as more Wanted Poster icons come around after each spin, the greater the number of Wilds available in forming winning paylines. Even greater still is the possibility of having a Wanted Poster stuck in any position in each reel, as the special occurrence triggers additional bet-free spins.
Moreover, hitting five-of-a-kind Sticky Wild Wanted Posters as payline combination brings 1,500 coin rewards as payline win.
The Colt 45 Peacemaker Scatter Symbol
The Colt 45 revolver being the most popular sidearm during the 1800's represents the game's Scatter Symbol. This special icon brings Scatter Pays without the need to conform to payline patterns. A set of five (5) has the highest Scatter Pay at 2,500 coin credits.
Yet a set of three (3) or more of the Peacemaker Scatter Symbols has greater significance because their occurrence sets off the Dead or Alive Free Spins Game.
The Dead or Alive Free-Spins Game and Sticky Wild Symbols
Slot players receive a set of 12 bet-free spins as bonus reward. Here, payline wins are carried over as extra winnings of the spin that activated the round. Moreover, all payouts earned from the highest-paying matched combination in an active payline, pay twice (2x) the equivalent payout reward of the symbol that made a match.
The possibility of creating more matched paylines during the free games is enhanced by the special Sticky Wilds. Dead or Alive free-spins players who succeed in getting a Dead or Alive Wanted Poster stuck on each of the five (5) reels earn an extra set of five bet-free spins.
