Dead or Alive 2 - Can a sequel be better than the original?

In our sequel rich world, why let Marvel have all the fun! Dead or Alive 2, the follow-up to Dead or Alive, is back better than ever after a decade long absence. As the name suggests, it’s win or go home. Famed for its volatility and pendulum swings, a good rollicking was only matched by an even bigger win total once the dust settled.
It only took ten years, but, after much prodding by fans, NetEnt has released their new offering that’s every bit as a good as the original while also boasting key improvements and even more free spins.
Let’s see how it stacks up with the original, shall we?

Play the game Dead or Alive 2

In the words of Pablo Escobar, will it be silver or lead? Forgive the Narcos pun, but before starting, you’ll need to decide on an amount that you’re comfortable with wagering per spin in this casino slot.
Toggle through the coin value to determine your bet limit per spin. Once done, your selected amount will be shown after the ‘Bet” in the centre of the screen with your chosen amount.
The information icon allows you to view the game’s paytable, view winning bet lines, and read a pri-mer on the specific attributes of the Wild and Scatter symbols within the game as well as a further sec-tion detailing the available bonuses in Dead or Alive 2.
If you’re feeling like trying lady luck, the autoplay function will allow you to automate the entire pro-cess once you’ve decided on a wager amount and the number of spins to be played consecutively. In true fashion, Dead or Alive 2 promises all the action and the volatility in a straight-up cocktail. Hit the Max Bet button for the highest possible stake, in this case, 18CAD, and try to keep your emotions in check during a true burst of excitement.

Features of Dead or Alive 2

Keeping with the original, NetEnt has repurposed many of the symbols previously available within the slot. Listed below, you’ll find them arranged by order of value:

  1. the Sheriff’s badge
  2. the pistol
  3. the cowboy hat
  4. the riding boots
  5. the whiskey bottle with matching shot glass

While they are repurposed, each symbol has carefully been updated to match the standards and de-sign expected from a slot game in 2019. This is one case where you can teach an old dog new tricks.
If you’re looking to increase your chances of success, familiarizing yourself with all the available win-ning patterns is essential. Take a look at the ‘Winning Bet Lines’ section for all the ways to win.

Dead or Alive 2 Bonus Features

Like any good post-credits scene, the best is usually saved for last. An additional two types of free spins have been added to the game.

Scatter Jackpot

The infamous Scatter Jackpot. If presented with five Scatters in one fortuitous moment, collect the bounty you’ve perilously worked over.

Free Spins

If you’re unable to lineup five scatters, we won’t hold it against you. Three scatters are also a good time. After you’ve collected them, a second screen will open up with three types of free spins availa-ble for selection. Regardless of your choice, you’ll be given 12 free spins.

  • Old Saloon Free Spins: Wins are multiplied by 2 with an additional 5 free spins available to be acti-vated if at least one Sticky Wild on each of the five reels appears. Any additional wild symbols that lands on the same reel will automatically transform the wilds into a Multiplier Wilds.
  • High Noon Saloon Free Spins: If you find yourself with two or more Wild symbols, of the same kind, within a single reel, the Wild symbols combine to become a Double Multiplier Wild. If three happen to land, it becomes a Triple Multiplier Wild symbol. Impressive, I know. If one or more Sticky Wilds lands on each reel, you’ll earn a further 5 free spins.
  • Train Heist Free Spins: Is it even a Western if there isn’t a train heist? Wild symbols increase the multiplier by 1x. And, if that wasn’t enough, players earn a free spin as well. Doing a little math, 16 Wilds would result in a 16x multiplier and a further 5 free spins. Talk about a robbery!
