Dead or Alive 2 - April Slot of the Month

Dead or Alive 2 is the latest slot release from NetEnt. Arriving on 24th April 2019, it is the highly anticipated sequel to one of NetEnt’s most popular slots. Dead or Alive has been a staple across many of the best slot and bingo sites for the last few years. The original slot offered a canny experience of life in the Wild West in the 19th Century; all cowboy boots, sheriff badges, gun holsters and spilling tumblers of whisky.

Best Sites to Play

  • Hyper Casino, launched in January 2019, is the latest site on the L&L Europe platform. Other notable bedfellows in the L&L stable include Fun Casino, Yako Casino, and All British Casino. Hyper is a slightly different animal to these other casinos.

Despite being a very impressive slot for the time, especially from a graphic perspective, it now seems a little dated. Rather than wallow in the passing of time, NetEnt got their best minds on the case and have injected new life into the franchise. The visuals seem 10 years fresher and all the mods and cons like bonus rounds have been updated. Dead or Alive was always one of the most atmospheric slots out there with a properly immersive design. Thanks to this reboot, the new generation of players will be equally blown away by this awesome adventure slot which throws you into the wildest of America’s history.


96.82% – Thankfully, in this sequel they’ve diluted none of the originals potency. Rather than pouring money into the design, and then scamming their money back through adjusting down the chances of winning, they’ve done the opposite. In fact, they’ve raised the return to player by a small but significant 0.02%. As you can see in our definitive Top 20 Highest RTP Slots article (and where to find them), Dead or Alive II would slot nicely just ahead of its predecessor at number 4. That’s really impressive and much higher than most other new online slots that are released today.


HIGH – What’s cool about Dead or Alive 2 is that there are moments in the game when you can effectively choose your volatility. For example, when you reach the free spins rounds when you get 3 scatters in the main game, you get to choose a volatility in the different bonus games. You can choose between rounds which offer wins more often, or rounds which offer bigger wins but less often. On the whole, however, NetEnt class Dead or Alive 2 as a High Variance slot.

The Basics

Dead or Alive 2 has a standard 3×5 reels video slot setup. There are 9 winning bet lines which go from left to right. There are five different wild symbols which substitute for all other symbols in the game except scatters.

Bet Levels

There are nine fixed bet lines and the choice between two levels. Each Coin values anywhere between €0.01 to €0.50. Therefore, in the version that we played, the maximum possible bet on any given round was €9.00. However, it is important to bear in mind that this could depend on the casino, slot site or bingo site that you’re playing at.


Dead or Alive 2 has a cowboy, wild west theme that carries over from the original. However, the aesthetics, including the visual and the music have been greatly updated for 2019.

Bonus Rounds & Free Spins

When you hit three scatter symbols or more in the main game, you get a choice of 3 free spins rounds. As we mentioned, each free spins round option is different and ranges from low volatility to high.

Train Heist: Every time a wild symbol appears in the free spins round this adds to the multiplier as well as giving you another free spin. If the multiplier bar reaches 16, then you get an additional five free spins added on.

Old Saloon: All wins in this game are multiplied by 2! The appearance of sticky wild symbols will also activate 5 extra free spins!

High Noon Saloon: This is the free spins round with the highest volatility. 2 wilds on a reel will double the multiplier, and 3 will triple it. Sticky Wilds appearing will give you an extra 5 free spins!
