Narcos: Slot Review
The new online slot was released recently and it is based on Netflix series which is about one of the most famous Colombian narco-barons and the leader of the cartel. This slot comes with 5 reels and 243 ways to win. Min bet is 20 cents and max is 100 EIR per spin. Here are the features you can find; 1 is walking wilds, second is drive-by, third is lock up feature + free spins.
Visually, NetEnt does not disappoint – this corporate slot is based on a television series that talks about the growth and sales of cocaine in Colombia. All the reels depict all the characters you know and love and include the values of A, K, Q, and J cards with weapons, cash, rifles, and grenades. You will also have small planes and flamingos. Significant characters include 1 gang of Pablo Escobar, a beautiful blonde and 2 DEA agents (Steve Murphy and Javier Peña) – the last 2 rewards you 1, 4 or 15 times your bet for 3, 4 or 5 on the adjacent coils.
The DEA badge is a wildcard and is paid as DEA agent symbols – it replaces all characters except the spread and blocked characters. When the joker is part of the winning combination, the Walking Wild function is activated – the joker stays on the reels and moves horizontally to 1 place with each turn. Keep moving if you get winning combinations with wild characters and disappear only if they do not have any more winnings.
In the main game, you have the Drive-by function that works randomly when the car arrives through a set of reels, and a person starts to shoot from inside the car – this results in the balls in the characters, and then converts some high-value characters into the slums. This can lead to large payouts in principle.
Then you have the Locked Up feature – it starts when 3 or more Locked Up characters (depicted by Pablo Escobar) appear in one row. Once inside, these 3 symbols are moved together, and their values are 1-10 times higher than your bid.
After three free rotations, only the characters Locked Up and Golden Locked Up appear – the last one is represented by a golden briefcase and costs 11-26 times as much as your bet. When Golden Lock Up appears and is connected to the winning cluster, one of the following applies:
- Multiplier – all values in the cluster are multiplied by 2x or 3x
- Upgrade Symbols – the value of the characters increases by 1 time from the bid. This can occur 7 to 15 times.
- A large initial value – as an initial value to the symbol “Golden closed” adds additional value.
If you have a new Locked Up or Golden Lock Up character added to an existing cluster, the number of free rotations is reset to 3. In total, you can win up to 271 times your total bid.
Finally, Narcos comes with a free rotate function – it starts when you get 3 or more free rotation symbols on the reels 1, 3 and 5 at the same time. Your reward is 10 free rotations. For each free rotation, 1 or more valuable characters can be randomly converted into wild symbols for large payouts. You can also use the Walking Wilds feature – if the reels still have Walking Wilds, when the number of free turns reaches zero, 1 extra free spin is provided. Additional free rotations will last until Walking Wilds remains on the reels.
Well, I have to say that Narcos is another great brand slot from NetEnt – it looks great and has a lot of bonus features. The Walking Wilds feature is the key to a big win and can result in a payout of 1002 times your bet. Add it to the free rotation function, and you can win 1,506 times your overall bet.
The average difference is, Narcos offers great gameplay and balanced mechanics, ensuring that you enjoy branded content. In general, Narcos will definitely be a hit, like the Netflix series – Vaya Con Dios!
