How to Play
Dead or Alive II is set against the outside of an Old West building, most likely a saloon. It’s as if you are sitting on the porch, looking out at the reels in the middle of the screen. The coin values and coin total are at the bottom right of the screen while the betting and level options are on the left. In the middle is the spin button, autoplay and max bet, which automatically bets the maximum amount. If you want to read up on the features and see all the symbols and payouts, you can click or tap on the information button. After a winning spin, you’ll see the winning paylines and little animations, especially when the Wild symbols form part of a combination.
The low-paying symbols are made up of the card values, 10 to Ace. The high paying symbols are all Wild West related and appear in the form of Cowboy Boots, Whiskey Bottles, Guns, Cowboy Hats and Sheriff Badges. In fact, the Sheriff Badge pays out 100 times your stake if it appears five times on a payline.
There are also five Wilds, each depicted by a famous outlaw. They appear on individual reels. So Apache the Kid is on reel one; Della Rose on reel two; Jesse James on reel three; Belle Star on reel four; and Billy the Kid on reel five. Wilds replace any other symbols except the Scatter to create winning combinations. The Scatter is a Bull Skull with Guns and gives you 2,500 times your stake for five on a payline.
