The long-awaited Narcos video slot has finally been released by NetEnt and it’s everything we were expecting – and more! But be careful amigos, the Narcos slot is filled with characters who live in a world of danger, fast money and all manner of vices. It’s best to keep your head down, because these guys don’t mess around and you could find yourself on the end of something you’d really rather not be on!
Featuring 5 reels and 243 ways to win, the slot is based on the global hit Netflix series of the same name. Netflix chronicled the rise of the cocaine trade in Colombia and the gripping real-life stories of drug kingpins of the late ’80s from the first episode aired on 28th August 2015 to the final episode which concluded on 1st September 2017.
In this raw, gritty original TV series, details on the actions taken by law enforcement are documented, with close encounters of the many battles in the war on drugs, targeting notorious and powerful figures that include drug lord, Pablo Escobar – all this and more has been perfected in minute detail with the latest NetEnt release.
Exciting features include; walking wilds which remain on the reels while you’re winning and move one place to the left with each spin; the drive-by feature, which transforms some of the high-value symbols into wild symbols; and the infamous locked up feature, which (when activated) awards a random coin win. Land a golden locked up symbol, and you can unlock even more great features! Three scatter symbols appearing anywhere on reels 1, 3 and 5 gives you 10 bonus spins.
Pays and Strays:
The highest-paying symbols are the undercover police offers who try to bring the drug-lords down. The blonde-pouting lady and the mean mogul are also high-paying symbols. Medium value symbols are the flamingos and jet. The card values are the lowest-paying, but instead of just the usual expected symbols of J, Q, K and A; NetEnt designed them to be more in-keeping with the theme, so you’ll find the odd grenade, pistol, stacks of cash and machine gun on display.
The wild symbol is another high-paying icon and these special agent badges can appear anywhere on the reels. Walking wilds appear in both the main game and bonus spins and go as follows; wilds that are part of a win stay on the reel and shift horizontally one place to the left with each spin, creating more chances to win.
Randomly activated during the main game is the drive-by feature; this transforms some high-value symbols into wilds. Locked up feature is awarded when 3 or more corresponding symbols appear on the same row in the main game; these assign a random coin win value of between 1x and 10x your bet. Golden locked up is a little more extravagant and offers multipliers of up to 15x each time it’s activated!
Three scatter bonus spin symbols will award 10 bonus spins and, in every spin there’s the chance that one or more high value symbols will turn wild. If there are walking wilds still in view at the end of your free spins, an additional spin is awarded until there are no more left!
