Ready for the Duel?
For a rather modest online casino game, Dead or Alive pokies have amazing graphics and impressive details that will make your western experience more authentic and enjoyable. It almost seems like one can feel the dust under the feet and the smell of leather and horses. In the background, there are recognisable marks of the Wild West such as the swinging lantern.
The landscape is typically western, with a lot of rocks and a stormy sky above. While playing, watch out for the thunderstorms, or a strong wind blowing, and when you press some of the buttons, beware of the whip or the revolver being cocked ready to fire right at you.
The authenticity of the old west doesn’t stop there, as the tiles of the reels are filled with popular symbols. The lowest paid symbols are common card signs like J, K, Q and 10. The ones that award the highest prizes are items that every good cowboy looks for – some short drinks, a pair of cowboy spur boots, a hat, a pistol in a holster and preferably a sheriff’s badge.
In respect of the western theme, among other games, this one has a user-friendly layout and is easy to use. Besides Free Spins there are no other features, not even the gambling mode. Wild is represented by a WANTED poster, and it has three functions in the slot:
- Substitutes for any symbol in the winning combinations other than Scatter.
- In the Bonus feature Wild turns to be sticky, so when it shows up on the grit during the free spins, it holds its place until the last free round is over.
- One or more sticky wilds will activate additional five free spins; this can happen only once in the particular bonus feature.
The bonus feature of 12 free spins is triggered by three or more Scatter symbols landing anywhere on the grit. Scatter is the best paying tile, displaying two crossed pistols and a few bullets beneath them.
