Up until very recently, Narcos was a TV show that's exclusive to Netflix, but now, thanks to the Swedish software manufacturer, NetEnt, it's also a gripping online slot. Like the Netflix series, the Narcos slot game charts the drug wars that took place in Columbia in the 1980s. However, it also has several things that the show does not such as 243 ways to win, a Free Spins Bonus, and Walking Wilds.
Narcos accommodates bets from 25p all the way up to £100, and NetEnt says that it's a medium-to-high variance slot with a 96.23% RTP (Return to Player). There's also the chance to win as much as 5,000 times your bet while playing the Narcos slot, so get ready to start spinning!
Our Verdict: The highly-anticipated Narcos slot offers explosive gameplay and first-class graphics and sound effects. The animations are also impressive, particularly in the Drive-By Feature where a group of drug-dealers drives their car past you and fire bullets at the reel set.
If you're looking for a high-quality slot with unique and exciting special features, it's time to experience NetEnt's Narcos.
Design: The Narcos slot game takes you to the sunny Columbian city of Medellin, and in the background, you can see the rows of houses and shops that line the city's streets. The original soundtrack from the TV show is also used to provide the music for the game.
Pablo Escobar – one of the world's most notorious drugs barons – appears as one of the special paytable symbols and can also help to unlock the Locked Up Bonus. Prizes can also be gained through the four playing card symbols, as well as the flamingo, the Cessna, the two DEA agents, the gang member, and the female.
By adjusting the Coin Value and Bet Level settings, you can change how much money you're playing with on each spin. The other controls let you view the paytable, place the maximum bet, and turn on auto-play.
Wild Symbol: Two types of wild symbols are used in the Narcos slot – traditional wilds and Walking Wilds.
The traditional wild is the policeman's badge, and it can replace any symbol except the scatter and the Pablo Escobar symbols.
Walking Wilds are created whenever a wild symbol contributes to a win, and the feature makes any wild symbol that's showing on the screen award a re-spin before moving one reel to the left. The feature continues until all Walking Wilds have disappeared from view.
Bonus Features: Drive-By can occur at random while you're playing Narcos, and the bullets that are fired onto the reel set by the speeding car are transformed into wild symbols (which can potentially become Walking Wilds if a win is formed).
Locked Up is awarded when Pablo appears in three positions on the same row. It gives you re-spins using extra-rich reels, which can lead to upgraded symbols, win multipliers, and more.
Finally, Narcos offers a Free Spins Bonus in which you receive ten free spins and the Drive-By Feature active on all spins.
