April Launch For Dead Or Alive 2 From NetEnt


12 Mar 2019

In May 2009 NetEnt launched the Dead or Alive video slot. Just before the 10th anniversary of it’s arrival on the Internet and the sequel is set to hit a tablet, laptop, mobile or desktop device near you soon!

The expected launch date for Dead or Alive 2™ from NetEnt is 23rd April 2019, but who is going to win the gunslinger battle? The original or the sequel? We’ve a little wait to determine a winner…

Dead Or Alive 2™ – The Trailer

As is often the case with this particular developer, we’ll be offered a teaser by way of a trailer for the title and we’ve been checking out the Dead or Alive 2™ clip on YouTube.

You can view it by clicking the image below:

We’re told in the short synopsis of the video that the newer version ‘preserves the essence of the original’ but offers more bang. It certainly looks to be the case when you watch the trailer.

Features Of Dead Or Alive 2™

Obviously we haven’t yet spun the reels of the new NetEnt title but the clip does offer us a little insight as to the features of the upcoming release.

On the reels we can see the usual 10 through to A and cowboy boots, cowgirls, bar girls, a gun, whiskey bottles and a number of other things you’d associate with the Wild West.

There are three features to Dead or Alive 2™ and these are what you need to choose from when you trigger the free spins by getting three or more scatters on the base game.

You have to pick from the following before your free spins begin:

Train Heist

This boasts an increasing multiplier with every wild that lands on the reel. Your multiplier will increase by one per wild and also see your free spin count increase by one too.

If you hit the top value of 16x, you will get a further five free spins.

Old Saloon

This is pretty much the same as the original in that all wins are multiplied by two and any wild is held for the remaining free spins. If you get all of the five outlaws on the reels, you will get an additional five free spins.

High Noon Saloon

This is where you could win over 100,000 times your original bet! Some have described this option as ‘Dead or Alive on crack’ because when you land more than one wild on the reels, they multiply.

For example: two wilds, 2x multiplier, 3 wilds, 3x multiplier.

Full judgement is reserved until launch but we’re keen to give the reels a spin at somewhere like CasinoPop.
