Dead or Alive 2 Introduction
Dead or Alive 2 is a 5 reel, 3 row, and 9 fixed bet line slot from the folks over at NetEnt. This new release is a follow up to the massive popular Dead or Alive 1, which itself was a 5 reel, 3 row, and 9 fixed bet line slot.
In revamping this classic game, NetEnt have designed Dead or Alive 2 to look a bit slicker, a bit cooler, and a bit more cowboy than its predecessor. There are four different settings: the train, the high noon saloon, the old saloon, and the western sidewalk.
The symbols in the game are just as wild west as the settings. There are five high value symbols which include a sheriff’s badge, a 6 shooter, a ten-gallon hat, a pair a cowboy boots, and a bottle of sarsaparilla. There are also five low value symbols which are the A, K, Q, J, and 10. In addition to this there are five different wild symbols, (all of the same value) which are the five different bandits which your mission is to hunt down. Finally, there is the ominous looking scatter symbol, which is a bison skull and two pistols.
Dead or Alive 2 on your Mobile
NetEnt and its online casino games never let us down, do they? Of course not. So it was never going to be the case that they did not design Dead or Alive 2 to be fully mobile compatible. To do this they made the game in HTML5, a programming language that allows for this cross-platform compatibility.
Dead or Alive 2 Game Tutorial
OK, so the game looks really nice and it plays really well on NetEnt mobile casinos, but how does the game itself work? Well, there are quite a few features within Dead or Alive 2, so let’s take a look at each.
The wild substitution is pretty simple, it is just a symbol that substitutes for any other symbol in the game except for the scatter symbol.
This feature is located within the Old Saloon and the High Noon Saloon. When the wildlands on the slot reel it will not leave that position until the free spins game is over.
Scatter wins are wins based upon whether or not you get 2 or more scatter symbols anywhere on the slot reels. If you do, then you win – they do not need to correspond to any bet line.
Train Heist Free Spins
This is a free spins round of the game set during a train heist. In this round, there is a multiplier meter, when a wild symbol lands on the slot reels this meter goes up by 1 and you’re given 1 extra free spin. When you get to x16 on the multiplier, you’ll get an extra 5 spins.
Old Saloon Free Spins
In this round you’ll be transported to an old timey saloon, during which all your wins will be multiplied by two. Wilds also become sticky wilds, and when you collect one or more on each of the reels you’ll be given 5 more free spins.
High Noon Saloon Free Spins
In this round of the game, you’ll be sent to a high noon saloon. In this round wilds become sticky wilds. Whenever two wilds land on the same reel they’ll be transformed into x2 multiplier wilds, and whenever there’s three they’ll become x3. One or more sticky wilds on each of the slot reels deliver 5 more free spins.
Dead or Alive 2 Free Spins
The free spins within Dead or Alive 2 are built into the three different free spins rounds.
Dead or Alive 2 Bet Limits
The betting limits in Dead or Alive 2 are determined by the betting mechanics within the game, along with the number of potential winning bet lines the game has within it. In Dead or Alive 2 there are only two different bet levels (1 and 2) and six different coin values (0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.1, 0.2, 0.5), across the 9 fixed bet lines. This give us a minimum bet of 0.09 and a maximum bet of 9.
Dead or Alive 2 Maximum Win
The maximum win within the main game, on a single bet line is €1,500 which is quite a decent amount. However, the maximum win within the whole of the game is absolutely massive. If you get the maximum coinciding win within the High Noon Saloon free spins round, then you will get a win of €1,000,000 – that’s a potential win of a million!
