- A brand new slot from NetEnt based on the hit TV show Narcos
- Lots of features on offer including multipliers and upgraded symbols
- Win free spins to trigger more Wild symbols
Narcos slot from NetEnt is a brand new game with lots of different features and an exciting theme based on one of the most dangerous and wealthy drug lords of all time, Pablo Escobar. It’s actually based on the TV show about him, Narcos, which has been a big hit and it’s perfect for an exciting slot. In terms of the design, there are 5 reels here with 3 rows offering 243 ways to win. I like the drawing here although some more background animation might have been nice. All you have to do is get a win using the base symbols from left to right and I’ve listed these as follows for you, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- Jack or Queen (lowest value)
- King or Ace
- Plane or Flamingo
- Drug Dealer
- Javier or Steve (highest value)
Naturally, there’s a Wild symbol too shown as a badge. It will substitute for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the Scatter symbol and Locked Up symbol.
Narcos Slot Bonuses and Features
Walking Wild. This feature is available during the base game and the Free Spins Bonus. Any Wilds that are part of a Wild will stay on the reels and move horizontally one place to the left with every spin until it reaches the end and the feature ends.
Drive-By Feature. This is a simple feature triggered randomly but only during the base game. It will randomly turn some high value symbols into Wild symbols.
Locked Up. This is another feature which is triggered when you land 4 or more Locked Up symbols on the same row, not just anywhere on the reels, during the base game. The symbols will move together and given a random value of 1-10x your stake. During the feature, only locked up symbols and golden locked up symbols will appear on the reels. Getting 3 or more of these together forms a winning cluster. Whenever a symbol lands next to a winning cluster, a random payout up to 10x your stake is awarded. Note that you don’t have to pay for any of these spins. So what’s so special about the golden symbol? When this is connected to a winning cluster, one of the following is unlocked:
- Multiplier. All values in a cluster are multiplied by 2x or 3x.
- Upgrade Symbols. This can assign multiple upgrade values of 1x your stake to symbols which are part of the same cluster as the golden locked up symbols. You can do this 7-15 times for every time the feature is activated.
- Big Starting Value. This will add another starting value to the golden locked up symbol as a starting value.
Free Spins Bonus. This Bonus is triggered by 3 Scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 during the base game. You’ll get 10 free spins, and on each of these there’s a chance one or more high value symbols will turn Wild. At the end of the Bonus, if you still have Walking Wilds left on the reels, another free spin will be awarded until there are none left.
Narcos is an exciting new game from NetEnt that’s based on the hit TV show and infamous criminal Pablo Escobar. There are a bunch of features here, most of which are quite original and that makes the game more exciting and enjoyable for longer periods of time. The Locked Up Bonus is the most interesting one for me, giving you payouts for clustered symbols and extra rewards for the golden symbols. The payouts on offer aren’t massive, but this isn’t a very high variance game so wins are more frequent. All in all, I really like it and you can tell they’ve put a lot of time into this slot. I think it’s worth checking out which you can do using the link below, and you can also check out some of their other slots here too.
