NetEnt set to release Dead or Alive 2 Feature Buy version
Editor's note 2: Dead or Alive Feature Buy version is now available here.
Editor's note: on March 16, 2020, an official announcement was made by NetEnt: "With the new ‘Buy Free Spins’ feature, players are able to trigger Free Spins faster than ever before. When clicking on ‘Buy Free Spins’, players will be given 12 Free Spins and the option to select which Free Spins round they want to play."
Since its 2019 release, Dead or Alive 2 has grown to become one of the most popular slots ever released by NetEnt. Initially doubts were expressed regarding its insanely high 111,111 times the stake advertised potential, but critics have since been silenced as one max win after another have appeared on social media.
With that said, a game with such winning potential comes with a price, and in order to produce the large wins that it has been known to do, Dead or Alive 2 is also ferociously volatile. Anyone who has ever played Dead or Alive 2 probably knows all too well about the struggles involved. Not only can it be a bit of a drag waiting for the bonus to drop, for the majority of us, wild lines are as mythical as a three eyed frog.
If there ever was a game that could benefit from a feature buy option, it's probably Dead or Alive 2. To be launched on October 20, players across the world (with the exception of UK) will be able to skip the less exciting part and head straight into the action for a cost of 66 times the stake in the updated Dead or Alive 2 Bonus Buy version. Moreover, buying the free spins will guarantee you scatter symbols on reels 1, 2, and 3, increasing the chance of landing all five scatters (and the 2,500x jackpot) in the process.
NetEnt's first bonus buy slot, Serengeti Kings, builds on a system that involves collecting symbols and dynamic price tags. In Dead or Alive 2, however, things are far more straightforward as it it comes with a fixed cost. Safe to say, interesting times are ahead of us.
