Welcome to the streets of Medellin, where some of the most notorious Narcos made world famous names for themselves. However, you don’t need to follow in their footsteps to come into vast sums of cash, but rather make use of NetEnt’s latest iGaming creation – Narcos online slot. Similar to Vikings, NetEnt has landed another brilliant licensing agreement to produce an online slot based on the popular television series Narcos, which documents the introduction of certain narcotics across the American border thanks to Pablo Escobar and his Medellin Cartel. Now we know the premise, does this game have more than just a cool theme?
NetEnt are one of the biggest and best iGaming studios out there at the present moment, and their titles are always usually graphically enthralling. With Narcos online slot they decided to rather incorporate detailed animations than real stills of characters from the show. It seems to work quite well, while the background to the 5 reels and 3 rows is a line of buildings from one of Colombia’s most famous cities – for all the wrong reasons, of course. The intro video to the game has some steamy Latin music and lists all the features you’ll find in the game, while also introducing the characters on the reels.
The most you’ll be able to win in the base game is £120,000.00, however that number can go up significantly should you be playing at the max bet of £400.00 per spin as well as tie in a bonus feature to the spin. If you like to play a slightly more conservative game then the wagering starts all the way down at £0.20 per spin, however as you’ll know full well this won’t land you cartel sized amounts.
You have the option to play on mobile devices, as well as tablet. The graphics won’t waver on whatever device you play. You’ve also got a 96.23% RTP should you play a sensible strategy.
This is an online slot based on a television series, so expect characters from the show to appear on the symbols. These serve as the higher paying symbols while the lower paying are standard playing card symbols J, Q, K and A. NetEnt have spiced the lower paying symbols up a tad by adding in things like guns, cash and explosives to lie alongside the symbols. The higher paying symbols consist of a plane, a flamingo, a Narco, an attractive lady, Detective Steve Murphy and Detective Javier Peña.
Look out for the police badge on the reels. This is the wild symbol and will substitute all regular symbols to create a winning payline. There’s a feature called the Walking Wild, meaning that if a wild forms part of a winning combination it will shift to the next reel for another spin. Also, look out for the Free Spins symbol as well as the Locked Up symbol, represented by Escobar himself.
The first feature we’ll discuss is the free spins. Landing a scatter on reels 1, 3 and 5 will give you 10 free spins. There is a chance that high value symbols can turn into wilds during the free spins, while the Walking Wilds are also at play here.
Another feature is the Locked Up feature. Land 3 Pablo Escobar symbols on the same row and the symbols will merge, sending you to a screen to play a few spins awarding you a multiplier wins of between 1x and 10x your bet. This can be really profitable, so keep your fingers crossed that this feature triggers on a regular basis.
It’s always fun playing an online slot based on a movie or TV show. The sole aim of playing these games is to win some stellar funds, but playing a title with an awesome theme always just seems to make the wins that much more enjoyable. Not only is Narcos online slot fun to play due to the theme that it carries, but the win potential is very respectable. NetEnt have been generous enough to make 2 bonus features available, instead of just a standard free spins feature. Take advantage of both of them, as combined they have the ability to help the wins flow in like narcotics to Miami during the 80s.
