Slot lovers have embraced this classic slot because of the chance of huge winnings in the bonus round, even with small stakes. Winnings of up to 18,000x the stake have been documented, making Dead or Alive one of the most exciting slots.
You can play this game for as little as 9p per spin or up to £18 per spin.
Dead or Alive Slot Features
A great Free Spins feature can win you as many as 17 free spins, and all wins are doubled. But to win big, you must get sticky wilds popping up in the feature. Dead or Alive is considered a high variance game, so that you will get some huge wins in the bonus game every once in a while.
To trigger the Free Spins, you need to have three or more Guns pop up simultaneously on the reels. You will then get 12 free spins, and all wins have a 2X multiplier, so they are doubled. But before playing the feature, you get a cash prize depending on the number of Guns that triggered the Free Spins.
The amount of cash can be 4X your stake all the way up to 2,500X your stake!
The Free Spins are so exciting because of the Sticky Wilds and the chance of forming lucrative wild lines.
If one or more Wanted Posters pops up on every one of the reels, you win five more free spins at the 2X multiplier. If you combine all of this with the sticky wilds, there is the potential of winning some giant amounts.
Our thoughts on the Dead or Alive slot
The potential of the free spins bonus is huge, but it comes at a price. This slot has high variance and can eat you alive on given days.
Though the base game can be somewhat monotonous, the bonus game is anything but boring.
The excitement due to the massive potential is unrivalled, especially when you manage to land lots of those sticky wilds. Get five of them on a winning pay line, and you are set for a huge win.
If you like this high variance slot, don't forget to check out its better sequel, Dead or Alive 2. It comes packed with even bigger win potential and three free spins bonuses.
