It looks like NetEnt finally listened to us. It’s been ten years since the original Dead or Alive slot came out and we’ve been pestering it for a sequel for almost as long. It must have got fed up with all the fan letters we’ve been sending because this year it released the sequel. At long last! We can now enjoy Dead or Alive 2.
Wild Action In The Wild West
Slots developers can go one of two ways when creating a Wild West themed slot. They tend to either explore mining for jewels as SG Digital did with Diamond Mine, or ramp up some six-shooting outlaw action. Just as in the original Dead or Alive slot, Dead or Alive 2 sees us head back to the Wild West to play across five reels and nine paylines. Symbols such as Cowboy Hats, Boots, Bottles, Guns and Sheriff Badges (not rusty ones) set the scene across the reels. In fact, the Sheriff Badge can pay out 100 times our stake for five on a payline, proving it’s always good to stay on the right side of the law.
Better than that, in this fast-shooting sequel we have five Wilds in the form of famous outlaws. Apache the Kid appears on the first reel, Della Rose on the second, Jesse James on the third, Belle Star on the fourth and Billy the Kid on the fifth. NetEnt used outlaw characters to great effect in its excellent Wild Wild West The Great Train Heist slot, as each of them can be used to create winning combinations and give us our share of their conquests! Dead or Alive 2 also boasts three Free Spins round. We can choose from the low variance Train Heist Free Spins, medium variance Old Saloon Free Spins or the high variance High Noon Saloon Free Spins, which gives us the chance to win up to 111,111 times our stake!
The Old West Has A New Lease Of Life
Slots fans have enjoyed cowboy slots such as Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist upon their release, and they remain popular because we love cowboys, we love robberies and we love it when they appear on the slots. That’s why we loved the original Dead or Alive, after all. But now our slot love life has a new interest as cowboys come back with a passion on NetEnt’s Dead or Alive 2 slot. So thank you NetEnt, we’ll stop writing letters now.
