There’s awesome news coming your way if you liked NetEnt’s legendary Dead or Alive slot – the sequel to the 2009 video slot has been released today, April 24th, 2019, and we just couldn’t help looking up as much info as possible, to be able to inform fans about what’s coming! Featuring sticky wilds, free spins and the potential of winning over 100,000 times the stake, it sounds like Dead or Alive II has some interesting new improvements to offer, but without failing to remind us of the original game that has remained so popular over the years!
Dead or Alive 2 is a 5-reel slot with 9 paylines, featuring the original gang of outlaws: Billy Kid, Belle Starr, Jesse James, Della Rose and Apache Kid. Symbols on the reels include 10 to Ace Royals, whisky bottles, cowboy boots, hats, a gun, and a sherrif badge, which is the highest-paying symbol. There’s also a wild symbol, which features each of the 5 outlaws, and a scatter, which is the pair of colts. Just like the original game, the Dead or Alive II base game comes with the potential of hitting a Scatter win jackpot – landing 5 scatters will give you 2500x your stake, as well as access to the free spins round!
To reflect recent trends, players will be able to choose from 3 bonus rounds with different mechanics and volatility in Dead or Alive II. Land 3 or more scatter symbols on the reels and you get to pick one of the below:
Train Heist free spins: these come with a multiplier which increases every time a wild symbol lands on the reels, and also adds an extra spin. If your multiplier meter reaches 16x, you get another 5 free spins! This is probably the round with the lowest volatility.
Old Salon free spins: similar to the original game, all wins are multiplied by 2 and any wild that lands remains sticky for the rest of the round. If you manage to land all 5 outlaws you’ll also get another 5 spins.
High Noon Saloon Free Spins – highly volatile, if you land more than one wild on a reel here, these will multiply, with the possibility of reaching a x15 multiplier. Players will get 5 extra spins when one wild lands on each of the 5 reels. This is where you can win the game’s highest payouts of over 100,000x the stake!
We will have to wait until the slot is released, but we expect bonuses to be plentiful when it comes to Dead or Alive II. Online casinos will be pushing it by dishing out free spins and running exciting tournaments, and we're pleased to announce the first one we've come across: Casumo casino will be running 4 raffles and boosted Reel Races on Dead or Alive 2 between the 25th and the 28th of April 2019! Players can win up to £1,000 from each raffle, plus a prize of £2,000 from the Reel Races, which shall take place on Friday and Saturday.
What’s more, if you’d like a substantial amount of bonus money to use on Dead or Alive 2 slot, you can always sign up with a new casino site and claim a deposit match bonus.
Dead or Alive II will have a theoretical RTP of 96.8% and will be playable by staking from £0.09 to £18 on each spin. That may seem like a very low amount to high rollers, but in this case it doesn’t mean that you cannot win big! In fact, you can win over 100,000x the stake as you play this high volatility slot!
In developing this slot, NetEnt has sought the opinion of experts from the player community, to make sure that they delivered something that players truly want. Therefore it has retained the same atmosphere and feel of the original Dead or Alive slot, including the soundtrack. Of course, graphics have been significantly improved, and Dead or Alive II is also bound to impress with its HD graphics and cut scenes!
Although we haven’t been able to play Dead or Alive II yet, we are sure that this will be one of the best new online slots this 2019, and we’ve got great expectations regarding it! We like the prospect of winning such big amounts even with a rather low stake, the impressive graphics and the fact that you're given a choice when it comes to free spins. Try it out at your favourite NetEnt casino as from the 24th of April 2019, and don't forget to check out our offers section closer to the date to be the first to learn about special promotions that casinos will be running on this new game!
