Game Theme & Graphics

The Dead or Alive display comprises three main elements—video display area, keypad area, and game panel.

  • Video display area. The main game reels and the free spin reels are displayed in this upper area. In addition, the PAYTABLE button and information about the maximum possible coin win are shown.
  • Keypad area. The keypad area shows the current bet level (that is, the number of coins wagered per bet line), the current number of bet lines, the available cash in coins, and the current coin value. This area also contains the main game buttons used to select the bet level, bet lines, coin value, and to start the game.
  • Game panel. The game panel at the bottom houses the buttons for the game settings, audio, and autoplay menus, and the game rules. This area also displays the player’s account information and alternates between showing the available cash, current bet, amount won, and player mode (when in Play for Fun mode).

Main Game

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:

  • BET LEVEL: Clicking this button increases the bet level (that is, number of coins per bet line) by 1.
  • BET LINES: Clicking this button increases the number of bet lines by 1. (Alternatively, clicking a bet line number in the video display area selects the corresponding number of bet lines.)
  • SPIN: Clicking the Spin button increases the number of bet lines by 1
  • MAX BET: Clicking this button changes the bet level to 4, and starts a game round with all bet lines selected.
  • COIN VALUE: Clicking this button increases the coin value to the next level.

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.

Wild Substitution

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.

Scatters and Free Spins

Dead or Alive features animated scatter symbols, giving the player a chance to enter the Free Spins feature.

  • Scatter wins. The main game pays out on 2 or more scatters. These wins pay the multiplier displayed in the paytable multiplied by the total bet. Player excitement and win anticipation is enhanced by reel acceleration when 2 scatters appear and there is still one or more reels to spin.
  • Free Spins feature. When 3 or more scatter symbols appear in any position, the player wins 12 Free Spins. The Free Spins are played at the same bet level and with the same number of bet lines as the game that triggered the Free Spins. A dynamic sign informs players how many Free Spins remain, and the multiplier applied to free spin wins (x2).
  • Re-triggered Free Spins. During Free Spins, when at least one Sticky wild appears on every reel an additional 5 Free Spins are awarded.
  • Free Spin wins. Bet line wins during Free Spins are doubled (x2). At the end of the Free Spins the winnings are added to the player’s cash.


  • Medium and low value symbols pay when they appear in an unbroken sequence on a bet line from left to right.
  • Bet line wins are multiplied by the number of coins bet per bet line.
  • Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except scatter symbols.


  • Wilds become sticky wilds during Free Spins. Sticky wilds hold their positions throughout the Free Spin session.
  • Free Spins pay win x2.
  • Additional 5 Free Spins are won when at least one Sticky wild appears on every reel.

Malfunction Management

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.

Information to the Player

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.
