Most movie sequels are rarely as good as the original. Recreating anything that was highly successful can be a very hard thing to do given an elevated level of expectation. Fans want the sequel to be good or even better than the original, but most times that is not the case.
Indeed, no not tell that to the gaming experts at NetEnt. As one of the top gaming software developers in the industry, this company is used to meeting and exceeding expectations. Case in point is its latest game release Dead or Alive 2. As highlighted in a recent post on the company website, the sequel to the original wild west cult classic is right on the mark.
The new game is filled with a high level of volatility. It offers multiple free spin opportunities and quite a few upgrades and some unexpected twists. The original Dead or Love stakes its claim as one the most-played slots games over the past 10 years. Following in some hefty footsteps, the sequel positions itself as an “epic reboot of the legendary, wild west-themed NetEnt title”.
Just like its predecessor, this new game is loaded with thrills and excitement. However, NetEnt pulled out all the stops with several “showstopping” additions. The new game is a product of a collaboration with casino streamers and members of the gaming community.
Along with the extreme volatility is some huge win potential. Dead or Alive 2 gives players the chance to collect over 10,000x the original bet. They also have the ability to choose between two winning options. The first is winning a large amount of money. The other is winning more often.
This five-reel, three-row video slot offers the following gameplay features:
- Scatter Wins
- Wild Substitution
- Sticky Wilds
- Three Free Spin Games
- Shifting Wild Symbols
The three free spin games are Train Heist, Old Saloon and High Noon Saloon. For players familiar with the original, they will be happy to know that the search for the legendary Wild Line is part of the new version as well.
Henrik Fagerlund is the Managing Director of NetEnt Malta Ltd. He was quoted in the release as follows:
“Given Dead or Alive’s immense and enduring popularity, it is a real responsibility to deliver a sequel to a game held in such high esteem. We’ve listened to the players and the slot community in this project to help ensure that Dead or Alive 2 is the best game it can possibly be.” Moreover, the company MD adds:
Yes, Loving The Outcome Of Dead Or Alive 2
“We are incredibly pleased with- and proud of – the outcome of Dead or Alive 2. And are sure it will be a hit with those who love the original as well as a whole new generation of fans. It is definitely a game for fans of high volatility.”
Most importantly, the Old Saloon multiplies all wins by two. Also, one or more sticky wild symbols on each of the reels activates five additional free spins.
The MAX version of High Noon transfers symbols into multiplier wilds. The multiplier in the Train Heist can reach 16x to trigger five more free spins.
