Hola, amigos del Wombat! Let’s take a look at the Narcos Mexico slot. I am excited about this one.
There are quite a few branded video slots based on famous movies or TV shows. We have a great treat for the fans of the Narcos series, packed with great symbols and well-known characters.
In the Narcos Mexico slot, you can potentially win up to 10,486x the stake. That even beats the Gates of Olympus slot (and by quite a margin).
Narcos Mexico slot is the second game in the Narcos series. We first played the original Narcos slot from NetEnt. Narcos Mexico slot was developed by Red Tiger (the people behind the Cash Volt slot which is more of a traditional fruity.
Experience the continuation of the saga, with some great bonus features including Win Exchange and Cartel Spins.
Narcos Mexico Slot Design
The Narcos Mexico slot offers up some good visuals, done retro style like the original game. I have to say I prefer the first game on the looks front though. Let’s dive in a little deeper.
The reels are in the middle of the screen, set against a very interesting backdrop with that cool theme music is playing in the background. The Narcos Mexico slot is played in front of a Mexican villa with palm trees.
There are two cars covered in bullet holes on either side of the reels- it looks like something has been going down again, best we call Don Neto I guess.
We have 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A as the lower-paying symbols. These are followed by symbols such as a bottle, skulls, and dynamites. Then we have the high-paying symbols: the four cartel leaders, where the most valuable symbol can bring you up to 5x the stake for a fully covered payline.
Mysterious packages are wild symbols that can substitute the regular ones. Finally, we have a scatter symbol labelled Cartel Spins, which will help you activate the bonus feature. The whole scene feels pretty involved compared to something like Totem Lightning Power Reels. They have made a big effort to stick to the script.
Narcos Mexico Gameplay
Narcos Mexico is laid out in a five-by-three formation, with 243 Ways to Win on which to make combinations. For a spin to be a winner, you must land three or more matching symbols along any payline. You can win from multiple paylines in the same spin.
There is a Stake box below the reels. Click on the plus or minus buttons to adjust your bet accordingly. It’s simple enough, but please remember to gamble responsibly.
The game runs smoothly with some nicely detailed animations and a cracig soundtrack.
Narcos Mexico Bonus Features
There are four bonus features in the Narcos Mexico slot game. With two random extras giving you wilds and doubling wins, a Win Exchange feature can be used to access the all-important Cartel Spins bonus.
Here cartel bosses battle for territory. Respins are awarded, which give you stake multipliers and phone/plane symbols which boost your stake multiplier prizes.
Supply Drop feature
Randomly during a base game spin, the Supply Drop feature can activate. The aeroplane flies across the reels dropping contraband wild packages onto the reels.
Double Cash feature
Randomly after a winning base game spin, the Double Cash feature can be triggered. A cartel boss makes a call to double your current win.
Win Exchange feature
You can activate the Win Exchange feature when you win 100x your total stake or more. Swap your win for entry to the Cartel Spins feature if you wish.
For example, if you won 120x stake, you would gain access to the Cartel Spins and collect the remaining 20 x stake left over.
If you win between 30 and 100 x your total stake, you can exchange the entire win for a chance to enter the Cartel Spins feature. A gamble wheel appears with an equal amount of red and green segments. Landing on red will see you lose, whilst landing on the green will see you enter the Cartel Spins feature.
Cartel Spins Feature
The Cartel Spins feature can be played when landing 3 Cartel Spins scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 simultaneously. It can also be won from the Win Exchange feature as detailed above.
With three respins awarded, you will see a 10×10 grid where the cartel bosses appear in a corner each (2×2 in size).
With the remaining spaces displaying blanks, mystery territory prizes, phone or plane symbols can land. If they appear next to a cartel boss, they are activated, and locked in position with the number of respins resetting to 3.
Here is what these special symbols offer:
– Mystery Territory – Stake multiplier
– Phone – Doubles all multipliers from that territory
– Plane – Increases all multipliers from that territory between 1 and 5
When rival cartel territories are adjacent to the same Mystery Territory symbol, the Cartel War begins. The stronger boss captures the rival’s turf with his power growing. This can lead to bigger wins.
The feature continues until you run out of respins or achieve the max payout of 10,486 x stake. The cartel bosses are well connected, so they can make a few calls to grow their production.
Narcos Mexico Summary
The developers have done a decent enough job with the Narcos Mexico slot in terms of visuals. They have kept it authentic to the TV show.
The Cartel Spins are the main event in this game. Expanding territories and the increasing multipliers are a great help to hit the bigger wins, all the way up to the top prize of up to 10,486x the stake.
