The Narcos game is a high-energy slot set in dangerous late 1970s Columbia, developed by NetEnt and inspired by the hit Netflix series. It has five reels and a huge 243 ways to win. The stakes were high in creating a slot to echo that of the hit show, but we reckon they have aced it. From 3D bullets in the drive-by to Pablo Escobar’s mugshot, there is plenty to keep an eye out for in this video slot, alongside some other familiar characters as you spin.
We are transported to Medellin with the Narcos slot. Jam-packed with features, there is never a dull moment when you’re in the presence of Escobar and his cronies. Keep your wits about you while you spin with the bad guys, the police and more.
Set your Bet
With 243 ways to win, the producers have made it simple to contain your bet, so that you have an all-encompassing 20-credit bet to work with.
It is up to you how much value you want to give to these credits.
The minimum coin value is 1p and increases in increments up to a maximum of £2. The value you choose here will be multiplied by the 20 credits, creating your coin bet.
Want to step things up a notch? You can also increase the level of the bet if you wish, which adds more value to the coin bet. It is usually automatically set to 1 but can be boosted up to 10. Whichever value you choose for this bet level is multiplied by the coin bet to make your total bet.
Your total bet is displayed just below the bullet-filled spin button, which you can hit to get started once you’re happy.
Pay ways work differently to paylines, hence why there are 243 of them. You simply need to match identical symbols on adjacent reels from left to right.
Match three or more identical symbols from the leftmost reel, and you will be awarded, the size of the prize depends on which symbol and if you can manage to land any more than three-of-a-kind.
The two most valuable symbols are those of the guys who are trying to take down Pablo Escobar. One of them is holding a walkie talkie, and the other is wearing a brown coat and holding a gun. They both have a bit of hair which bounces as the reels settle after a spin. With both of these symbols, the top prize payout for five identical landings across the reels is 300 times the line bet.
The woman and the fella with the white hat pointing the gun right at us, are also equal in value to each other. Top payouts for five matching symbols all the way along the reels reach 250 times the line bet.
Two medium value symbols are in the form of the plane and the flamingo. Five identical symbols on a winning pay way could award you 120 times your bet line amount.
Lower-value symbols in this Narcos game are the card values from Ace to Jack, each with a little dangerous decoration on them. You could win between 40 and 60 times the line bet for a five-symbol match.
Narcos has a huge variety of bonus features, meaning that you are kept on your toes from a drive-by to getting locked up. Fast-paced and thrilling, experience the life of the big shots in Medellin.
Look out for the police badge; it is the Narcos game’s wild symbol. These badges can substitute for any of the standard symbols in play to help build up or extend any winning combinations.
Plus, if you match three or more wilds on a winning way, you can be awarded, with top payouts of 300 times the line bet.
This feature is active both in the main game and free spins.
Whenever a wild police badge is part of a winning match, the wild will stay on the reels and move one space horizontally towards the left with each extra spin. This means you can get more from your wild wins!
If you enjoyed the walking wilds feature in The Invisible Man slot, also from NetEnt, you will love this.
Randomly activated, the drive-by feature will see someone fire out some bullets towards the reels which look like they are coming straight out of the screen!
Some high-value symbols on the reels will be transformed to wilds from this feature, making it worth the gunshots in the end.
Locked Up Symbol
Pablo Escobar himself is the locked-up symbol. When three or more of them land on the same row in the main game, the locked-up feature is activated.
All triggering locked-up symbols are moved together into a cluster and assigned a coin value while being encompassed by a chain.
Locked Up Feature
In this feature, only locked-up and golden locked-up symbols will appear on the reels. A cluster of three or more is a winning cluster.
When a locked-up symbol lands adjacent to a cluster, it is joined up within the chain and assigned a multiplier.
Even better is the fact that all spins in this feature are free!
Golden Locked Up Symbol
When a golden locked-up symbol, a shiny gold briefcase, is connected to a winning cluster, one of three special bonuses will be activated. Each of them has a unique way of boosting your prizes throughout the locked-up feature.
- Multiplier - all values will be doubled or trebled
- Upgrades - additional multipliers can be assigned to symbols in the same cluster, around 7 to 15 times each time the feature is activated
- Big starting value - extra value is added to the golden briefcase symbols as a starting value.
The old-school style car is the free spins scatter symbol in the Narcos slot.
Land three cars anywhere on reels 1, 3, and 5 to trigger 10 free spins.
Throughout the feature, there is the potential for one or more of the high-value symbols to transform into wilds.
Once the free spins are complete, if any walking wilds remain on the reels, one extra spin at a time is awarded until the reels are cleared of them!
