When you load NetEnt’s Dead or Alive pokie, we are just going to tell you know: it’s not what you think it is. No, this pokie isn’t based on the hit video game series. But if part of you was also expecting a pokie with a slew of great features including a ton of free spins on top of a 3-D and beautiful wild west theme, then you won’t be disappointed, as you’ll see in our review of Dead or Alive.

Rating breakdown

Misleading name aside, Dead or Alive is a great all-around pokie that earns our recommendation to all Aussie pokie players looking for a high-paying experience that makes them feel alive at the slots.

Detailed review


Jackpot & Bonus games

While we were hoping for some sort of pick ‘em shootout bonus game, Dead or Alive’s free spins feature is just as entertaining and can be extremely lucrative. Showing three windmill scatter symbols gives you 12 free spins. During these, your real cash wins are doubled and any sticky wilds hold their position on the reels until the free games over, in addition to giving you five extra free spins every time one appears.

Capitalizing exceptionally well on these free spins and sticky wilds will earn you the game’s top jackpot of 54,000 coins.

Mobile play

We were disappointed at first that Dead or Alive wasn’t part of NetEnt’s Touch mobile line. However, even without that or its own app, the game still performs great on mobile smartphones and tablets. Particularly, our Dead or Alive online pokie reviews team was impressed that:

  • All the free spins and sticky wild features remain
  • Top jackpot amount of 54,000 coins still applicable
  • Western sound effects still come through strong on smartphone speakers
  • Interface remains easy to use still on smaller mobile device screens
  • No scrolling necessary as the game size adjusts to your screen like it does on apps

Why Dead Or Alive Is Worth Playing

If you can get over your disappointment that this isn’t one of NetEnt’s many licensed TV and movie pokies (and we certainly did when doing our Dead or Alive review), then you will discover a great overall pokie that Aussies with an interest in Spaghetti Westerns will love.
