Where to Play Dead or Alive 2
Dead or Alive 2 Slot Overview – Quick Stats, Symbols, Pays
DoA fans can rest assured the new NetEnt game is built using the same DNA, featuring simple 5 reels, 3 rows and just 9 fixed win-lines.
No stacked symbols here, just good old high-paying Sheriff badges, revolvers, cowboy hats, boots and whiskey on the rocks; plus the 10 through Ace symbols which also pay only for 3-of-a-kind or better, from left to right. Max payout for 5-of-a-kind from this batch is 1,000 coins.
Now, let’s not forget about the two specials: Wild and Scatter.
The Wild Bandit symbols pay well, 1,500 coins, but the Scatters/Bonus symbols will pay even better, up to 2,500x your stake for 5-of-a-kind.
What is The Maximum Win in Dead or Alive 2 Slot?
It’s possible to trigger 100,000 times the bet, which is about the same as in the original DoA. And that is pretty high, even by today’s standards.
Here are some stats on Dead or Alive 1 payouts to give you some idea:
- The biggest DoA win ever recorded at PlayOJO was €48,727.50.
- Casumo recorded 50 wins that were over 2,000x bet on DoA in January 2019 alone, making it one of players’ favourite games after Book of Dead out of hundreds of video slots.
Not too shabby. And DoA 2 promises to boost that with its re-mastered Free Spins!
All you need is 3 or more Scatters to unlock the Dead or Alive 2 Free Spins with 3x different types of volatility levels and unique features in the following Free Spins bonuses: High Noon Saloon, Old Saloon, and Train Heist.
Train Heist Free Spins (Volatility 1 of 3) – All Wins Multiplied Up to 16x!
Win up to x16 win multiplier + 5 extra Free Spins!
The Train Heist feature is all about the Multiplier.
The win multiplier increases by +1 whenever you get a Wild symbol. For that you’ll also get +1 Free Spin. The total number of free spins at the start of this bonus is unknown though.
But, if the Multiplier reaches the maximum that is x16, you’ll also get +5 Free Spins to magnify your wins even further.
Old Saloon Free Spins (Volatility 2 of 3) – Sticky Wilds + All Wins x2
Double wins, Sticky and Multiplier Wilds.
Like the original Dead or Alive Free Spins bonus, all wins in this feature will be doubled.
Better yet, this one is with Sticky Wilds that stay on the screen for the duration of the bonus. As a bonus, here you’ll also have a chance to get +5 Free Spins whenever you hit at least one Wild on each of the 5 reels.
Finally, here comes the most volatile free spins feature.
High Noon Saloon Free Spins (Volatility 3 of 3) – Boosted with NetEnt’s New MAX Feature
Multiplier Wilds + NetEnt’s MAX concept (desktop).
This one’s the only Dead or Alive 2 Free Spins bonus with the MAX Bigger Hits concept which NetEnt introduced in the Berryburst MAX slot to enable more sizeable wins.
Basically, if you choose High Noon, Wilds will not only stick until the end of the bonus but can also be transformed into Multiplier Wilds. This time, however, they can not only double but also triple a line win, depending if you get x2 or x3 Wilds on the reel.
And just like with Old Saloon, +5 Free Spins will be yours if you reach a point when you have at least one Wild symbol on each reel.
