Dead or Alive 2 Slot Review:

There is a popular slot called Dead or Alive from NetEnt. It is a game that we have played a lot in the past but perhaps not so much in recent times. In the first Dead or Alive game, it is possible to get sticky wilds during free spins. It’s a great and an appreciated feature.

Western themed slots are an appealing theme and we are super glad that NetEnt decided to do a continuation of the old Dead or Alive slot.
We saw the preview video and  Dead or Alive 2 slot looked very interesting. We have now tested Dead or Alive II several times and written a review about it.

About Dead or Alive 2 & the symbols:

Dead or Alive II is a 5 reel-3 row western-themed slot from NetEnt. The game takes place in the Wild Wild West. You can see classic western wooden houses and the prairie in the background. There are lots of western symbols, both in the background and on the game field. In the right corner, you can see a buffalo skeleton skull. In the left upper corner a lantern and in the left bottom corner a wooden wheel from a horse wagon. 

Like in many other slots the lowered valued symbols consist of the letters, 10, J, Q, K, and A. The higher valued symbols are a whiskey bottle with a glass, western boots, a cowboy hat with a rope, a gun with a belt, and a sheriff star. The most valuable symbol is the sheriff star the second most valuable symbol is the gun and belt symbol.

There are also 5 different looking wild symbols and a scatter symbol which consists of 2 guns and buffalo horns. “Wild symbols substitutes for all symbols except Scatter symbols. Wild substitution pays the highest possible winning combination on a bet line”

Verdict & Game-test:

“Dead or Alive 2 slot was developed in collaboration with well-known casino streamers and the player community” so our expectations were high before testing the game. We played the game for a while and a discoverd that still two scatter symbols is a win, like in the old Dead or alive slot.
Another thing, which still is like it was in the old game is the minimum bet. In other words, the minimum bet is still 0.90 euro. The low bet is really nice sometimes, especially if your budget is small.

When you collect three scatter symbols you can choose between 3 different kinds of Freespins, you can choose if you want free spins with big wins /High Noon Saloon) or free spins with frequent winnings (Train Heist) or something in the middle(Old Saloon. This is great since you sometimes just are looking for an easy fast win or sometimes are hunting for bigger wins.

The graphics are good and appealing, perhaps not excellent but very good.   We played the game for a long time and it was nice to hear the background sound while playing. The sound is awesome! It reminds us of a game called Red Dead Redemption for PlayStation and Xbox. Red Dead Redemption (1 & 2) are excellent western games where you can ride around in the Wild Wild West for hours and enjoy a lot of things like cowboys do, like shooting on outlaws.

It’s nice to getaway to the Wild Wild West for a while, especially when you can choose between three kinds of free spins and when it feels like you are playing Red Dead Redemption.

The game is very good even if it would have been nice with more special features in the main game or some kind of  additional bonus game*(*not only free spins).The game is better than many recent NetEnt games and we look forward to playing it a little more to get a better grasp on it and the fact that Dead or Alive 2 also includes a Scatter win jackpot, is great! (if you get 5 scatters in the base game( 2500X stake.)We give it a strong 4/5 rating or a weak 5 rating.

Overall score: 5/5
