NetEnt’s Wild West themed slot game Dead or Alive is a real classic! It has everything that a real Wild West game needs: revolvers and whisky in the desert, where only animals can be heard. The simple gameplay makes this game a great experience.
Equipped with everything an outlaw needed back in the times, the symbols are the classic Wild West ones: a revolver, a sheriff's badge, a hat, cowboy boots and whisky, as well as letters and numbers in metallic writing. The scatter symbols are two crossed revolvers with some bullets.
The highlight of the game is the wilds, with different posters with famous 'wanted dead or alive' outlaws of the Wild West. Using real historical figures makes this game authentic and interesting. The background is set in the desert, with lightning occasionally coming from dark clouds. 2D graphics are the only ones used in this game, which makes it extremely smooth.
The background sounds make you feel like you are in the midst of a western movie, with coyotes barking and birds whistling in the desert while someone steps on a brittle piece of wood.
As with most of the games developed by NetEnt, Dead or Alive is available to be played anywhere and everywhere on mobile devices.
Only 9 paylines are possible, made up by 5 reels with 3 symbols each. The game offers a 96.8% return to player rate, which is slightly above average.
The unconventional betting amounts start with 9 and go up to 19. This is very little, and might be disappointing to those who are ready to risk everything at high noon for the chance to win.
