9 Pay Lines
Dead or Alive™ is a 5-reel, 9-line, video slot that is sure to have players riding straight into the casino. During Free Spins the Sticky wild feature gives players the chance of winning big by catching wanted bandits.
Game Theme & Graphics
The Dead or Alive display comprises three main elements—video display area, keypad area, and game panel.
Players can select the coin value, number of bet lines, and bet level before spinning the reels.
Game Actions. The buttons on the keypad perform the different game actions:
Game rounds. When the player clicks the Spin button, the amount bet is debited from the current credit (available coins and credit). The reels automatically come to rest. Alternatively, when G4 mode is disabled, the player can stop the reels by clicking the spin button.
Game results. Players can win on any of the bet lines on which they bet. The game highlights which lines are winners and how much has been won on each line. The total winnings are added together and shown in the Win box. The amount won is added to the cash and displays in the game panel.
Reel spin acceleration. Anticipation of winning is enhanced with a reel spin acceleration that starts when 2 scatters appear on the reels.
Aside from the big winnings in Free Spins mode, the player is treated to the Sticky wilds feature. The wanted posters that are the wild symbols in the main game have named characters on them during Free Spins. A different character is featured on each reel. When a wild symbol appears on a reel during Free Spins, it ‘sticks’ for the duration of the session. If the player wins additional Free Spins during the Free Spins round, the Sticky wilds will remain stuck throughout the retriggered Free Spins.
Dead or Alive features animated scatter symbols, giving the player a chance to enter the Free Spins feature.
If a player attempts to access a game using an invalidated session, (for example, due to inactivity or system restart) an error message is displayed in the game. The player can then log on again and resume game play. The game state is always stored so the player can resume game play exactly where he or she left off. In case of an HTTP error, network timeout or server error a "technical error" message will be displayed to the player and the game will stay in an "unavailable" state until the player reloads the game at a time when the game becomes available.
If a session times out, a "session timeout" message will be displayed to the player and the game will stay in an "unavailable" state until the player reloads the game. In case of an "out of money" event, an "out of money" message will be displayed to the player and the game will stay in an "unavailable" state until the player reloads the game.
Players receive a response required message every hour of continuous play: They cannot continue playing unless they respond to the message which provides them with details about the amount bet and won so far during game play. Players also have access to their game session history and game rules from within the game at all times.
