If any era of North-American history appeals to the imagination of most people, it must be the time when the motto was “Westward Bound!”. In this period, roughly covering the complete 19th century in which the western part of the US was explored, many world famous characters emerged like cowboys, Indians and sheriffs, but also outlaws, desperados, and gunslingers. It was the time, especially during the second half of the century, when the only law was the law of the Colt or Winchester. This eventful period is the theme of video slot Dead or Alive in which Net Entertainment takes back to the Wild Wild West in an exciting Netent casino game.
One of the most tempestuous periods in the United States’ history is the time in which the, then unexplored, western part of this vast country was colonised and populated. It was not only called the Wild West because the colonists from the already relatively developed East Coast encountered a pristine wilderness, but also because there were no laws or rules installed in that part of the country, as was the case in the more civilised world.
Who hasn’t heard of the most infamous protagonists of that period like Billy The Kid, Jesse James, Wyatt Earp (from the famous gunfight at the OK Coral), Wild Bill Hickok and Buffalo Bill, and their female Wild West counterparts like Calamity Jane and Belle Star? These figures became famous because their portrait was widely spread in those times, and not because they were part of a travelling theatre company, but because, as criminals, they were sought by the law, wanted Dead or Alive.
On the reels of Netent video slot Dead or Alive you’ll see several items that directly refer to the Wild West, like the inevitable cowboy hat, pistols, whiskey glasses, cowboy boots and the symbol of the representative of law and order, the sheriff’s star.
Video slot Dead or Alive has 5 reels with 3 rows and only 9 bet lines. Of course the slot has Wilds that substitute other symbols (except for the Scatter symbols) to create winning bet lines. With 2 Scatters appearing you get Scatter Win (bet x 2) and with 3 or more Scatters you’ll get 12 Free Spins.
Winnings from the Free Spins rounds are doubled and whenever a Wild appears it will turn into a Sticky Wild, holding its position during the remaining Free Spins rounds. In case you’ve got a Sticky Wild on all 5 reels, you’ll receive 5 additional Free Spins.
Especially because of the special game features as described above, Netent video slot Dead or Alive will please all fans of the exciting Net Entertainment powered casino games. Whether you identify with an outlaw, desperado, gunslinger or law obeying sheriff.
