Analytics on online casino games and slots has found that the most-played slot at UK online casinos in 2019 was Dead or Alive II by NetEnt.
The game is the sequel to the original Dead or Alive video slot, and as well as appearing in the lobby of hundreds of popular online casinos in the UK, it also features at many online bingo sites.
NetEnt’s games often manage to bridge the gap between the online casino and bingo markets as they appeal to a variety of players. They offer varying prize amounts and levels of volatility, exciting bonus features, and high RTPs (theoretical Return to Player rates). Examples include Gonzo’s Quest, Starburst, and Jack Hammer, as well as the software developer’s best-known progressive jackpot slot, Divine Fortune.
Dead or Alive II quickly landed top positions in most major casinos from the moment it was released in April 2019. However, it continued to attract players right up until the end of the year.
The analytics found that Eye of Horus Megaways, Mercy of the Gods, Scudamore’s Super Stakes, and Pirates Plenty – Battle for Gold also performed well, with them ranking in second, third, fourth, and fifth place respectively as the top-performing slots across 189 UK online casinos.
Dead or Alive II is possibly the most highly anticipated sequel to enter the online gaming market. It uses 5 reels, 9 paylines, and has a top prize of over 111,111 times your total bet. It also uses a gripping storyline in which the player acts as a bounty hunter who is pursuing some of the world’s most famous outlaws. Capturing characters such as Billy the Kid and Jesse James in the game’s three free spins bonus features bring rewards including win multipliers, extra spins, and sticky wilds.
