Dead or Alive II comes with 5 wilds – represented by an outlaw, each of them appears on their own reel. You have Apache the Kid on reel 1, Della Rose on reel 2, Jesse James on reel 3, Belle Star on reel 4 and Billy the Kid on reel 5. Each of them substitutes for all symbols apart from the scatter. 5 wilds on a payline will result in a 166.66 times stake payout.
Dead or Alive II comes with a trio of bonus features which are triggered by landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters on the same spin. You’ll then play 1 of the following free spin features – each of them starting with 12 free spins:
Old Saloon Free Spins feature - all of your wins during this feature are boosted by a 2x multiplier and doubled. Whenever a wild symbol lands, it locks in place for the rest of the feature. Land a sticky wild on all 5 reels and 5 extra spins are added to your total giving you 17 free spins in total. This is the same feature as in the original Dead or Alive slot game by the way.
Train Heist Free Spins feature - whenever a wild lands during this feature, it increases a multiplier by 1x as well as adding 1 extra free spin to your total. If you manage to get the multiplier up to 16x, then 5 extra free spins are awarded. You can benefit from unlimited free spins and an unlimited multiplier too!
High Noon Saloon Free Spins feature - wilds are sticky in this feature too. Land 2 or 3 wilds on the same reel during this round and they combine to create double or treble multiplier wilds. For example, a 2x and 3x multiplier combine to deliver a 6x boost. Sticky wilds on all 5 reels once again adds 5 more free spins to your tally.
The wilds can combine to give you a potential 27x multiplier – if you fill the screen with wilds, you can win a whopping 40,500 times your stake! There’s a limit of 111,111.11 times your stake to be won throughout this whole feature.
It’s 10 years since the Dead or Alive slot game first hit online casino shelves. The wait for the follow up seems to have been worth it. Like the original, it combines plenty of back story, quality design and plenty of extras to entertaining effect. Variance wise it’s very high and offers huge payouts in the High Noon Saloon Free Spins feature which uses Net Entertainment’s MAX concept. If you liked the original, then Dead or Alive II is a must!
