NetEnt have just released a promo video for Dead or Alive 2. The sequel to the hugely popular Dead or Alive, Dead or Alive 2 will officially hit the virtual shelves of online casinos on the 23th April 2019.
In this blog post today, we will take a closer look at what is in store for us with this hotly anticipated game.
Dead or Alive
The original Dead or Alive is one of the most popular games ever created by NetEnt, and that’s saying something considering the amount of quality titles NetEnt have produced over the years.
Dead or Alive is a true high volatility game which, in many respects, is more of an extreme volatility game, if such a thing exists.
Due to its volatility, Dead or Alive can reward players with some seriously hefty wins, which is one of the main reasons why it remains such a popular game for slot spinners worldwide to this day.
Dead or Alive 2
Dead or Alive 2 has taken the main elements of its much-loved predecessor and integrated modern, slick graphics and gameplay, bringing Dead or Alive into the modern-day landscape.
Dead or Alive 2 will be released on the 23rd April 2019, almost ten years since the original Dead or Alive was released.
The game will incorporate the same Wild West theme of Dead or Alive, but with upgrades, twists and new features. Pretty exciting stuff, right?
In terms of appearances, Dead or Alive 2 has many of the same characteristics as the original Dead or Alive, but with hugely improved graphics and visuals.
Three new free spins games will be in play in Dead or Alive 2, with each one of them offering something different.
The winning potential is even bigger than that of its predecessor. Indeed, you could win more than 100,000x your bet in Dead or Alive 2, which is higher than any other non-jackpot slot on the market.

Dead or Alive 2 is a high variance, 5-reel slot with three rows and nine fixed paylines. It features free spin games, multipliers, wild substitutions, scatter wins and sticky wilds.
Dead or Alive 2 has a higher RTP than the original Dead or Alive, coming in at a considerable 96.8%.
NetEnt have decided to stick with the symbols of the original Dead or Alive with 10 to A playing cards, whiskey bottles, boots, revolvers, cowboy hats and sheriff hats all making up the standard symbols.
There are five wild symbols with each one of them depicting one of the gang of five outlaws who are, if you don’t remember, Billy Kid, Belle Star, Jesse James, Della Rose and Apache Kid.
These wild symbols will substitute for all other symbols to form winning combinations, apart from the scatter symbol.
The scatter symbol pictures a pair of colts. If you are lucky enough to land five of them, you will win 2,500 times your betting stake.
Dead or Alive 2 Features
As we alluded to above, the new free spin games are the most distinguishable features of this new NetEnt game.
The free spins mode is activated by landing at least three of the scatter symbols. There are three free spin games to choose from, and each one has unique characteristics.
You choose which of the free spin games you would like to play once the free spins mode has been triggered.
Each one of the bonus games will give you 12 free spins to play with, which cannot be retriggered.
- Old Saloon Feature. This bonus game has very similar traits to the original Dead or Alive. All wins are multiplied by 2 and any wilds which land are sticky. If a wild lands on each of the reels, an extra 5 free spins will be yours. Also, if two or three wild symbols land on the same reel, they will be transformed into 2x and 3x multipliers respectively
- Train Heist Feature. This is an increasing multiplier game which can go as high as 16x. It starts at 1x and with each wild which lands, the multiplier goes up by 1x and another free spin is added to the game. Five extra free spins will be yours if you manage to hit the 16x multiplier
- High Noon Saloon. Last, but certainly not least is High Noon. This is an extremely volatile free spin game which could reward you with a whopping 100,000x your stake. Wild symbols are transformed into sticky multiplier wilds here, just like in the Old Saloon feature
