Have you got what it takes to survive the Wild West? Saddle up your horse and ride into town in Dead or Alive, a hugely popular slot from NetEnt. Carrying your loaded revolver and cutting a dash in your cowboy boots and stetson, it’s up to you to find your fortune in dangerous, lawless times.

Happily, TwinSpires Casino is giving you a helping hand by making Dead or Alive its featured Slot of the Week. When you spend just $10 on this cool game, you’ll get 20 free spins. It’s the most low-risk way to earn cash in the Wild West, and you won’t have to rob a bank!

How to Play Dead or Alive

This atmospheric game is based on the familiar five-reel, three-row formula and has nine paylines. Set against the backdrop of a western desert scene, the sound of a repeater rifle loading plays before each spin. There is no music; instead, there are moody sound effects like creaking boardwalks, thunderclaps, distant dog bark, and a whistling cowboy.

As usual, you win by matching symbols on the paylines, each of them in line with the theme. The low-paying symbols are the 10, J, Q, K, and A etched like the grip of a revolver. Higher paying symbols are the shot glass, boots, stetson, revolver, ammo belt, and sheriff badge.

To get big money, you want to land the scatter symbol, which is two revolvers. Get three of these to win 12 free spins, where winnings are now doubled. You also have the wild symbol, represented by the Wanted, Dead or Alive poster. In normal play, these act as substitutes for all symbols except the scatters.

But the wild symbol comes into its own during your free spins. Any wild becomes a sticky symbol, holding its place for the remaining free spins. Each time a new wild drops, you get five more free spins. In this way, you can see how easy it is to build up a nice stash of cash, probably more than you’d win in the local saloon’s dodgy poker game.

All in all, Dead or Alive is an immersive game that gives you the true Wild West feel.
