Dead or Alive 2 Review
One of the most highly anticipated online slots of all time Dead or Alive 2 is a true classic from legendary developers NetEnt. There’s not many games out there that can boast such popularity, but this one certainly does… This feature-filled Western slot is most notable for its High Noon Saloon feature that gives players the opportunity to win a whooping 111,111x their initial stake.
There’s a distinct feeling of tension in the air as soon as you load up this epic Western slot. The game’s five reels are set upon what looks like an old set of gallows used to hang the most treacherous of villains. Broken rope, old bottles and a lantern swing menacingly from the beam.
Behind the reels is a long dusty street cutting through the centre of town, where no doubt many gunslingers have faced off against each other in legendary duels.
In terms of sounds, a slow, menacing guitar tune plays in the background whilst gunshots bellow whenever a winning combination is formed on the reels. The tunes do change up during the bonus rounds, but for the most part you’re going to be feeling the heat as the music transports you to right into the heart of the American frontier.
In terms of symbols, you’ll find quite a few! The low paying ones are your traditional 10, J, Q, K, A whilst the high paying symbols are bottles, boots, a cowboy hat, gun and Sheriff’s badge.
Scatter symbols are skulls with crossing revolvers adorned on them whilst wilds are a one of five different unscrupulous characters that wouldn’t look out of place locked up in the town jail.
This is one of the stranger games we’ve played when it comes to betting levels. Players can bet between 0.09 and £3.60 (which equates to 18 coins in game).
There are a number of buttons players can select along the bottom of the screen that allow players to change the game to their liking, so they can get rid of the intro screen, use spacebar to spin and set up auto spins.
If you’re a new player you might find the interface a little clunky and unfriendly, but anyone that’s been around the block with online slots should be able to get a feel for the game right away.
Despite being a highly volatile slot, Dead or Alive 2 is very generous in terms of their payout and has to be considered one of the best out there… The game is filled with innovative bonus games that make for very exciting and lucrative gameplay.
Players can land a huge 2,500x their initial stake if they can land 5 scatter symbols on one spin.
The High Noon Free Spins bonus round gives players the opportunity to register 111,111x their initial stake, which we must say is absolutely incredible considering it’s not a jackpot slot.
There’s no doubt about it, Dead or Alive 2 is an instant classic. NetEnt had big boots to fill when they announced they would be making a much-anticipated sequel to Dead or Alive, and they’ve absolutely done the job they set out to.
This sequel looks, sounds and feels absolutely fantastic. We cannot give NetEnt enough praise for this highly volatile, highly engaging Wild West wonder.
