Narcos chronicles the rise and fall of drug lord Pablo Escobar, ruthless leader of Columbia’s feared Medellin cocaine cartel. The original NetFlix series was a smash hit; now, internationally renowned online casino solutions ninjas NetEnt have given Narcos a new lease on life as an authentic video slot adaptation that hits the bulls-eye every time. Packed with exciting symbols and jaw-dropping special features, Narcos draws you into Escobar’s lifestyle of drugs, sex, death and money with online game-play that blurs the boundary between casino slots and video games as never before. Of course, as Escobar knew well, the higher the risk, the bigger the reward, and Narcos offers no fewer than 243 ways to win. Reason enough to give this Vegas casino game a spin.
The basic Narcos set-up is 5 reels and 3 rows set against a dusty, windy Medellin hilltop street corner. What “243 ways to win” means is that symbols need not appear on specific paylines but can land anywhere on adjacent reels from first left to right. Coin sizes range from 0.01 to 2.00. You can adjust the bet level from 1 to 10, for a minimum bet of 0.20 and a maximum of 400.00. The Return To Player is 96.23%. The maximum possible win is 1506x stake in Free Spins; 602 400 if you place the maximum bet of 400. As to be expected, Narcos plays perfectly on your device of choice – the NetEnt Touch® variant is compatible with iPhone and Android platforms for an anywhere, anytime online casino game experience.
The base game has plenty of fine touches that make for great entertainment carried by the kind of laid-back Latino music you know could explode into action at any time. The Spin button is a six-gun cylinder. Symbols are low, medium and high value: J, Q, K, A, festooned with grenades, assault rifles, automatics and piles of cash; a pink flamingo and a light aircraft paying 120x each; and Narcos characters José Rodríguez Gacha and Connie Murphy (250x stake each) and DEA agents Steve Murphy and Javier Peña (300x each). The Wild is a DEA badge appearing on any reels to substitute for any symbols except for Scatter and Locked Up throughout the game. Wilds that form winning combinations catch fire and become Walking Wilds that blaze across the reels shifting one place left with each spin. The wind howls, aircraft buzz in the distance, and then a car drives by at random and spatters the reels with a hail of lead, transforming high-value symbols into Wilds... The special features are unlocked by the Car Scatter and the Locked Up Symbol.
Land 3 or more Scatter Cars anywhere on reels 1, 3, and 5 to reach Free Spins. The music gains in intensity and the scene shifts: In a parking lot outside a night club, the cops pull in and the shoot-out begins ... You get 10 Free Spins during which the character symbols can turn Wild. Extra spins are awarded if there are any Walking Wilds left at the end.
Unlock the Locked Up feature by landing three or more Locked Up symbols (frowning images of Escobar with values from 1x to 10x) on the same row. The scene shifts to a prison yard at night with helicopters droning overhead. Connect 3 Locked Up symbols to form a winning cluster (see Escobar’s frown turn upside down!). Connect the Golden Locked Up symbol (a golden briefcase) to a winning cluster and activate a 2x or 3x multiplier, a fixed Coin Win, or upgrade values between 7 and 15 times.
