Dead or Alive 2 bonus features
We venture back to the Wild American West once more in Dead or Alive 2, with a top-notch soundtrack and visual design that evokes the dusty lawless frontier.
Low value A to 10 royal symbols sit alongside high value symbols like whisky bottles, cowboy boots, and guns. The sheriff’s badge is the most rewarding, giving the player 100 times their stake when 5 land on a payline.
There are actually 5 different Wilds available on this slot game, though they all behave in exactly the same way. Each character symbol is a Wild and only one character can land on any one reel. On reel 1, we see Apache the Kid. Della Rose and Jesse James show up on reels 2 and 3, respectively. On reeds 4 and 5, we can catch Belle Star and Billy the Kid, respectively.
All Wild symbols can substitute for other symbols except the Scatter and all of them can pay out up to 166 times the stake when 5 appear across a payline.
Dead or Alive 2 Free Spins
The free spins options on Dead or alive 2 are the game’s crowning glory. Yes, we said ‘options’, plural.
There are three types available on this slot. To activate one of them, you’ll need to land 3 or more Scatter symbols anywhere on the reel. Landing 5 Scatter on one spin awards a coin win that’s 2,500 times the stake. When free spins are activated, players receive 12 spins plus a choice of three features , which determine the volatility of the spins to follow.
Train Heist: The lowest volatility option is the Train Heist type. Every Wild that lands adds to the counter, increases the multiplier rate by 1 and also gives an additional free spin. The multiplier factor can reach a maximum of x16.
The Old Saloon: These free spins are the medium variance option. All wins are multiplied by two and landing all five outlaw Wild symbols at once awards 5 extra free spins. All wins remain on the reels for the duration of the feature.
High Noon: Finally, the High Noon free spins are the most volatile. These include sticky Wilds that also include x2 or x3 multipliers. If you land more than one Wild on the same spin, they multiply each other’s value. Landing one or more Sticky Wilds awards 5 extra spins. This type can payout up to 40,500 times the total stake!
