Dead or Alive, as the name suggests, is themed on the Wild West and set right about the beginning of the 20th century. The graphics, animations and sound effects completely portray that specific time and space. The game has 5 reels and 9 paylines and you can bet a maximum of 4 coins per line. The coin value ranges from 0.01 to 0.50 in this game. The minimum wager per spin is 9p, while the maximum wager is £18.
Dead or Alive lives up to the theme and comes with some brilliant graphics and animations. The reels are against a classic Western backdrop, the main street that is usually where the gunfights happen, with lightning in the background and the windmill spinning lazily. The reels are set within an ageing signpost, lending even more credibility in terms of the look. The symbols in the game include the sheriff's star, a gunbelt, a 10-gallon hat, cowboy boots and a shot glass full of whisky. The wild symbol is the wanted poster while the scatter symbol is a pair of Colts and 3 bullets. The wild symbol substitutes all other symbols except the scatter.
The bonus round is triggered by landing 3 scatter symbols across the reels. You get 12 free spins with a 2x multiplier on each win. In this round the wanted poster, which is the wild symbol, becomes a sticky wild. Each wild symbol that lands on a reel during a spin stays on for the remainder of the bonus round, giving you more and more opportunities of putting together some formidable winning combinations. You get 5 extra spins - a one-time offer - if you are able to land a wild symbol on each reel.
