Dead or Alive is a 9 payline video slot machine with a Wild West theme that was created by Net Entertainment. Featuring scatter symbols and wild symbols, the game is unique because of its sticky wild symbols in free spins mode. Whenever you hit a wild bandit symbol in free spins mode it remains "sticky" - collect all 5 and you could win a massive payout, over and over again.
The western themed base game on this slot is, to be frank, quite boring. However it is well worth persisting through (I prefer using autoplay for this purpose) for one of the best bonus rounds found in an online slot machine. The really interesting feature of this game is the free spins round with its sticky wilds.
Landing three or more scatter symbols in this game starts a round of 12 free spins, during which all your winnings are doubled. During the free spins rounds the traditional wild symbol becomes a sticky wild that holds its position on the reel for the remainder of the free spins. The wilds on each reel sport an outlaw character that you're trying to catch, and you can extend the free spins round for an extra 5 spins by catching all five (i.e. landing a sticky wild on all 5 reels). All the wilds that are stuck on the reels will be kept in place for the remaining free spins along with the extra 5 spins. This gives you the potential for some rare but absolutely massive wins because if you can get 5 wilds on a single payline (or even multiple paylines), then you will win the maximum payout for those paylines for each one of those extra spins.
Dead or Alive has the potential for some absolutely massive bet multiplier wins of several thousand or more due to its free spins round. It is probably the game with the single biggest number of winner screenshots in our thread for winner screenshots in our forum. In fact it has won our monthly biggest win multiplier screenshot prize so often that we had to bring in a consolation prize for anyone playing a different game that finished second. So give it a try and tell us what you think.
