If you haven’t caught the high-tension drama of the smash TV series Narcos then you now have a second bite of that seedy cherry with the hotly anticipated Narcos slot.
This wombat is more of a lover than a fighter, but the drama based on the true life story of Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar was more than I could resist.
Dust off your sunglasses and grab your toothpick, it’s time to join the slot baddies on the reels, which was fresh out of the box in May 2019. There are almost as many evil dudes in this games as there are in the Arcane Reel Chaos slot, but that one is set in a post apocalyptic world.
Look and Feel
Feel the heat rising in Columbia from the dusty city streets of Cali. Here, a gang of good for nothings are making big money running drugs. The big man in charge of the Colombian drugs game is Pablo, but he’s joined on the reels by his enforcers, ‘sicarros’, and pushers. These characters make the weathered outlaws on the Dead or Alive 2 slot look like teddy bears!
This isn’t a game for a laid back day, this is a drama-fest of the first order with enough gritty action to get this wombat chomping at the bit. The graphics are on the smart side and perfectly styled to bring a grimy edge to the criminal proceedings.
Behind the reels is a dusty city street; and here all the action is about to play out.
The high octane drama of Narcos slot is played out over 3 row, 5 reels and a mighty 243 ways to win rather than the pay-lines that you will see on most games, such as the Dragon Shard slot with its 40 lines. This game is just as top class on your desktop or mobile device.
Pablo’s gang make up some of the highest scoring icons including a gnarly gang member, a blonde temptress, and two USA Drug Enforcement Agents – major characters in the TV series. The two right-on agents are worth a packet if you land five on adjacent reels- up to a mouthwatering 15 x your wager.
The lower value icons are the Ace through Jack of the card deck pimped up with a load of weaponry!
This is a game that’s accessible to all, with spins starting from as little as 25p/c. For the higher rollers out there you can push your per spin wager sky-high at £100, if you’re feeling lucky punk!
Naturally, a Drug Enforcement badge provides the Wild and subs for all icons except the Scatter and those Locked Up icons. The Scatter is a dodgy car.
The Locked Up symbol is the gnarly face of Pablo himself.
When the Wild makes up part of your win, the money spinning Walking Wilds come into play. On your next spin the Wild will literally “walk” across the reels, one reel space to the left hand side. These nifty Walking Wilds can keep moving if you can keep making wins.
Get your head down for a “Drive By” in the base game when at any point a car driven by a gang member arrives in the background shooting bullets at the reels. Where the bullets pierce the reels, they replace high value icons with Wilds to boost your win value. I did warn you that this was a slot where you need to hold onto your pants!
Locked up Feature
As fans of the show or infamous true story will know, Escobar was incarcerated. In this game’s Locked Up feature, a trio or more of Locked up icons in a line trigger the bonus game.
Now for the clever mechanics. 3 or more Locked Up icons now spin as one; assuming a value of up to x10 your wager. And the fun’s not over yet, as you’ll gain three free games, and during this the reels are only populated with the Locked up icons or the special suped-up Golden Locked up symbol.
This extra winning icon is a golden suitcase (Escobar was some flashy dude hey!)
Make a cluster win using that blingy item then expect one of three mega modifiers to power up your play.
You could find yourself with:
A good ole fashioned Multiplier as your first attraction. Better still, the value of the winning cluster can hit a high note with a x3 multiplier.
Big Starting Value gifts you just that, the Golden Locked Up icon’s value is boosted.
Symbol Upgrade makes icons x1 your wager more lucrative and can happen up to a bonkers 15 x.
If Lady Luck is on your side, and you land any additional golden suitcase icon, then you will gain three further spins.
Free Spins Feature
Lure three or more cars to reels 1, 3 and 5 and you will trigger the free spins game. Ten free spins will be yours and during this feature, on each spin, one or more high value icons may transform at random into Wilds. Time to bring home the bacon! Don’t forget that the Walking Wilds can take place in this mode and can award a bonus free spin if its in play on your final free game.
NetEnt are the masters of taking on big brand bands and movies and creating slot magic from legends, and this game is no exception. The Narcos slot is the real deal, and atmospheric slot that captures the essence of the story it’s inspired by. If the slot gods smile on your play and you get Walking Wilds and the free spins game falling into place, expect wins of up to 1,506 times your wager. Lawlessness never looked so good, or was quite so lucrative.
