Dead or Alive - GAME REVIEW

9.0 / 10

If you’re a fan of the Wild West, then Dead or Alive is just the slot for you! In this Netent offering, you’ll really get to experience the life of a cowboy, and you’ll be able to do it all in high quality graphical content. And this game not only incorporates a wild icon for you to benefit from, but sticky wilds as well.

You’ll really be the cowboy of the town when you bring justice to some wanted criminals. With imagery of a Stetson, sheriff’s badge, shot glasses of Bourbon and more, this game executes its theme exceptionally well. And if that wasn’t enough, there is the inclusion of a scatter icon too. And whenever three or more of this one shows up, you’ll be able to play through 12 freespins!

Plus, all wins in this feature round are doubled. It’s a quirky game with criminals to capture, so get your sheriff badge on and uphold the law in this damn town! And once you’ve successfully caught them all, you can put your feet up and have a shot or two in the saloon!


Dead or Alive’s five reel, three row layout is set against a backdrop of a Western town, which seems to be under threat of heavy rain clouds! The base game is a very smooth affair, with the highest standard wins coming from the gold sheriff’s badge icon. You’re also able to benefit greatly from a wild icon, which is the ‘Wanted’ poster. This one will substitute for any other icon upon the reels and help you to form winning combinations in the process, with the only exception being the scatter icon. The game is very visually pleasing, with Netent utilising high quality graphics for your entertainment throughout.

A freespins feature does exist within Dead or Alive too, becoming active whenever you spin three or more scatter icons into view anywhere. This symbol is represented by the crossed over pistols. You’ll be given a total of 12 freespins to play through, with all wins receiving a double multiplier. Additionally, this round also comes with sticky wild symbols. These will remain in the same position for the remainder of the freespins. And when one does show up, it will activate an additional five freespins for you. Plus, if you do re-trigger freespins, the sticky wilds remain in the same position!

There aren’t any additional bonus features for you to activate or play through in Dead or Alive. It’s the base game, scatter and wild icon, and freespins feature only.
