Dead or Alive Slot NetEnt

Dead or Alive is a Wild West-themed video slot which features 5 reels and 9 paylines. This slot game will take you back to the 20th century and it is all thanks to NetEnt who created the game. This is a pretty basic slot, but it still offers truly impressive visual and audio effects. The reels are set against the western landscape with the storm rolling in, and with lightning flashing in the sky. Ride straight into any NetEnt Casino to play for real, or spin the reels for fun here at our page.

How to Play Dead or Alive Slot

Before you saddle up, and head to your very own western adventure, you need to set your bets, and it can be done in the following way:

  • You can increase or decrease your bets by hitting +/- buttons on Coin Value and Lines.
  • If you want a quicker way to set the maximum possible bet, you can do so by hitting the Max Bet button.
  • Play will set the reels in motion once you decide on your betting range.
  • Once you get tired of hitting that spin button constantly, you can hit Autoplay and choose the number of automatic spins.

Slot Features

The Dead or Alive slot is not something you would call an action packed slot, but it still has a couple of interesting features to keep your attention while you’re spinning those reels.

Wanted Poster symbol is the Wild in the game, and it can substitute for all the symbols in the game except for the Scatter. Wild can also form wins on its own when you land 3 or more of them on an active pay line.

Sticky Wild

Sticky Wilds can appear during the Free Spins feature. Once they land on the reels, they will remain locked in the position they are at, till the Free Spins feature ends. Sticky Wilds act the same way as the regular Wild, and it can replace for all the symbols in the game except for the Scatter. If one or more Sticky Wilds appear on the reels during the Free Spins feature they will activate extra 5 Free Spins.

Free Spins

Pistols are the Scatter symbol, and if you land 3 or more of them anywhere on the reels, you will trigger the Free Spins feature, and you will be awarded with 12 spins. All wins that you land during the feature will be multiplied by 2. This feature can be retriggered only once per Free Spins session.


With the RTP of 96.8% the Dead or Alive slot will have you chase after the most wanted bandits till you net some nice wins. With various betting options and a number of game settings this slot is definitely worth a spin.

The good old Dead or Alive slot has the classic western theme and comes with only 5 reels and 9 pay lines, what is there not to like about this one when it has so much potential but you gotta hit those 5 wilds in the free spins or get 5 scatters in the base game to be rewarded with huge wins. Such a highly popular slot with only 9 pay lines and a fairly high RTP of 96.80% makes this one of those slots that you will want to return to every now and then for a grinding session however I must say I have yet to get those 5 wilds or 5 scatters. Not even had the extra spins but that would be because I haven’t had enough spins on it so far. You don’t always need to get 5 wilds/5 scatters to get a big win since my best was 803x Bet. One good thing about the slot is that the feature frequency of around 160 spins per feature makes it less harsh than other slots nowadays that go into many hundreds that are not saying that you can’t sometimes experience a longer drought. The feature is triggered by getting 3 or more scatters which will give you 12 free spins and an extra 5 spins is awarded if you get a wild on each reel during the free spins. Not only does the feature have huge potential but also the amazing 5 scatters produce a 2500x Bet win potential. Most 5 scatters on slots pay 500x or less but this slot has a 2500x payout, you won’t find many slots that have this kind of payout.


Sometimes the feature can take too long to trigger, for strange reasons and I had my longest drought of a whopping 780 spins for it to finally give an 11.56x Bet! Most free spin features will be paying quite a small amount of around 46x or less. You will need some good base hits such as the 5 of kind’s to keep your balance at a respectable level to continue playing this slot otherwise you can expect to be down 100x or more. Not much goes on in the base game so you may prefer to put the slot on autoplay and walk away doing something else while you wait for it to trigger the free spins where the real potential is.

I have to agree with the positive reviews above but I'm only giving 7 stars for the simple reason I can never get a really good win. If I would have reviewed this slot a couple of years ago, I would be giving probably a 3 three review due to never getting the bonus round or even hitting more than 10x on any given spin.
However, when Dead or Alive pays it pays nicely and the gameplay is not monotonous having loads of variations. Not to mention I love the theme. The game is named perfectly as you are truly, Dead or Alive, mostly Dead, unfortunately. And from my experience, if you do hit a big win, it is best to sattle up your horse and skedattle to another game or just cash out. Otherwise, you will end up losing any winnings. Netent games for me anyway are all that way if you are lucky to hit a big win.
My biggest win was 600X on a $1.50 stake so $900

An oldie but Goldie, classic slot from NetEnt software, which is one of the most popular titles of the provider! A typical high variance slot, with 5 Reels and 9 Paylines with Free Spins/Re-Triggers/Wilds and Sticky Wilds.

The ‘Dead or Alive’ really gets interesting, when you hit the bonus round where wilds that land on the reels stick for the duration of your Free spins. You might get an additional 5 spins! Think about landing 5 Wilds on a payline, instantly you’re looking at huge potential, over 1.000x. Just approach with caution, because those wins are rare!

I liked this Wild West-themed slot and graphics, and the music is just great. It gives a good win even without a bonus game. The maximum win from a regular game was x30. I imagine what can give a bonus)

Dead or Alive live up to its name. You either dead or alive and I can speak from experience, well mostly come out dead, not that I lose a lot, but this slot has that feature that every punter seeks and that’s hunting a wild line.

I believe BTG was the only provider that could challenge this slot or was a match in terms of winning potential the slot had to offer. Netent had built a lot of excitement into this game (most excitement during free spins) and as much as I hunt this wild line, it becomes boring at the same time.

There are not a lot of special things on this slot as it only has 9 paylines and the paytable seems reasonable at the same time. The base game will not give you huge wins and does not have the potential to do so. The only time you can get a decent base game win is landing x5 scatters which will reward you with up to x2500 your total stake.

The main feature is the free spins feature. Now it can take you up to 500 spins without a feature or you can have 4 features within 100 spins but on average it pays between x5 – 30 your stake on average and that is most features. Scatters are pretty active on the reels and you often land 2 scatters but the 3rd scatter does not easily come in. Landing 5 is even hard. I am still chasing my wild line and 5 scatters. Need a good million spins to make sure I get either one of them.

3 – 5 scatter symbols will trigger the feature and pays between 4 - x2500 your stake. You are awarded with 12 spins and multiplier of x2. Which means a wild line during free spins gives you just over x300 your stake. You better hope to get them early in the game benefit huge wins. That’s not all, if you land a wild on each of the reels additional 5 spins are awarded for extra fun.

Dead or alive is extremely popular and we have seen the potential. I simply do not have the patience to wait for that 5 scatters or wild and its boring, although I want that wild line so bad. Maybe one day.

This is truly a classic. The game has a ridiculously high volatility but when it hits... it hits big! One time I played with a 0.09 bet and ended up getting a bonus and wildline for 120€+ something. A few other nice wins. It's all about lucky bonus and the rare 5 scatter win here. If you get a wildline.. expect a very high payout and of course the 5 scatters.

Very good payouts in line even at small bets. But the gangsters have never dropped out to me in the bonus game. 5. all the time something is missing. In general, the line is good in this slot.


What is missing in this game is that it takes a very long time to wait for the bonus game to roll out. sometimes even 700 spins are missing.

Well dead or alive I remember I was a new player 2 year ago. I open this slot any spin some and got scatter. The bet was 90 cent. I played my free spins in my 3rd spin I got 4 wild in line then 7th spin I got wild in last reel. Finally the game paid me 1700 euro by 90 cent. First time playing that was big surprise now 2 years this game never give 5 wild. Hahaha. Strange


Nothing really bad but the thing is making 5 wild is very tough task. It's purely based on your luck

This is probably the only game in which I managed to win really big winnings. I played this game often and for a long time, but, like many, I could not catch five wild ones in a row. But then, when the dam broke, and the winnings fell one after another, in different casinos, at different rates and on accounts with different currencies. Therefore, anyone who could not win in this game, my advice - do not despair, just play, sooner or later you'll be lucky.

And, probably my main advice, do not linger on this game if you do not keep the balance, and then try again next time.
Moreover, I was able to win in this game and with a great balance and with a small one. As soon as it was possible to win about 300 dollars at a rate of 9 cents, in 888 casinos, with 3 dollars, which won on a freeroll for 888 poker.
And as soon as it was possible to win on the advice of a friend, he caught in the bonus five wild symbols in the line of 9 rubles. and I immediately went into the game and was able to catch as five wild characters in a row, but at a rate of 27 rubles.

As a result, the victory was - 80,000 rubles.
This is what I like about this game, poker game, you always have a chance to get a big win, it can happen at any moment.


This game gave me a lot, but I have not been able to catch five scatterers (((
Some players do not like the game, they can not win and constantly lose. Just do not have to play for the whole deposit in one game, if the game does not give you a win, then you need to change the game and try the next time.
