NetEnt’s most notorious outlaws are back, better than ever. Polish your revolvers once again and saddle up your horse because the sequel Dead or Alive 2 slot is finally out. No need to mention the cult status of the original slot, so the only thing left to see is if the second part will be just as successful. Visit your favorite NetEnt Casino, give the game a couple of spins, and let us know what you think, but before you do, read through to find out what to expect from Dead or Alive 2.
Something Old and Something New
The Dead or Alive 2 is scheduled for release on April 24th, 2019. Since everyone is pretty much familiarized with the theme, we choose not to dwell on it too much, but we will mention that the sound effects, the graphics, the gaming mechanics and the winning potential have been significantly improved when compared with the original version.
What it looks like to us is that NetEnt did an amazing job with this one as they focused more on improving the failing points than on actual redesign and reinventing of what was already good.
Same familiar game but with more fun, more excitement and bigger wins.
They kept a lot of good stuff there apart from the theme of course, and what you will undoubtedly recognize are the Wilds that can also be Sticky Wilds, the regular Free Spins feature that is triggered by the Scatters, and the Old Saloon bonus round which is pretty much left untouched.
What’s changed is bound to have you hooked on the game at least for some time. The winning potential on this highly volatile slot has improved significantly. The Free Spins round got an upgrade and in addition to the original one, NetEnt decided to add 2 more that you will get to choose from. You will meet new characters and get to enjoy the visual and sound effects that are on a whole new level here.
The Fine Details
One thing that you won’t be able to miss is the great attention to detail that has been put into the overall game’s design. From retro visual aspects across sound effects and soundtrack to symbol design and general artwork.
The game is played across 5 reels and 9 paylines, so that’s yet another aspect that remained unchanged when compared to the original. We mentioned the game is highly volatile, and the RTP is 96.8%, which is also left unchanged.
The thing we liked is the fact that you can now choose one out of 3 Free Spins features, and each of them comes with its own volatility level. In addition to Old Saloon one, NetEnt added the Train Heist and High Noon features. The High Noon comes with something NetEnt called MAX concept which has staggering, record-breaking wins that caps at x100000 your stake.
What’s even greater with this release is that this year the original Dead or Alive slot celebrates its 10th birthday, and there is no better way to mark this but to release a sequel to an already popular slot. Well played NetEnt!
