Narcos Slot Review (NetEnt) — Their Best Shooter Yet?

NetEnt has just released a real blockbuster, the Narcos videoslot™!

Discount about 40-60 years and enter the dark underworld of 1970s Colombia. You know, long hair, moustache, Rolling Stones and getting stoned; no wait, Mexico, Pablo Escobar and drug wars – this is what this explosive new slot is all about! After all, it’s based on the brutal Netflix TV series Narcos. The same brutal is its 243 ways to win, Walking Wilds and lots of re-spins. Mostly in a good way. Sounds fun? Read on and get your Free Spins on this new game!

The game was released on 23 May 2019 so you can already give it a spin at reputable NetEnt casinos like Guts.

So, here’s what to expect from the 243-ways and medium-high volatility Narcos slot.

Drive-by Feature (Random) – Transform High Symbols into Wild Symbols

Narcos Video Slot Drive-by feature.
Transform high symbols into wild symbols (random feature).

One of the best things that can happen in the base game is the Drive-by bonus.

It’s completely random, so no combo of symbols will help trigger the feature. However, you want to have as many high/face symbols on the 5 reels as possible. Because, when the Drive-by gets activated, shots will be made and all high symbols will get a chance to become Wild. When that happens, any Wild that becomes a part of a winning combo will also turn into a Walking Wild!

Remember Jack and the Beanstalk and its Free Spins? – The same type of Walking Wilds appears in the Narcos slot, sticking around for longer as they move one place to the left with each spin until they walk off the screen completely. This happens not only during the Drive-by feature but also during the base game. And with 243 Ways there’s bound to be a winning combo along the way!

Now to the bonus game.

Narcos Video Slot Locked Up feature win.
Win coins and trigger re-spins as the combo grows!

When 3x or more Locked Up (Pablo) symbols will appear on the same row (not reel), the Locked Up bonus will be activated and you’ll get a random coin win (1-10x the total bet) for each icon.

The feature doesn’t stop there but continues with interactive re-spins. If at any point during the first 3 re-spins you manage to lock up more Pablo symbols, the re-spins counter will reset to 3. Better yet, if you land a Golden Locked Up (Gold Case) symbol, you’ll get 1 of 3 upgrades: the multiplier (all Pablos become x2 or x3), upgraded symbols or big starting values (11-25x the total bet for every Pablo)!

That screenshot above was the first time I triggered this feature. That’s about 90x the total bet, but don’t get your hopes up as the game is rather volatile.

Free Spins Bonus – Fixed 10 Free Spins + Walking Wilds

Narcos slot Super Mega Win!
After about 15 Extra Spins this happened…

Although Narcos is a crazy slot, its Free Spins bonus is not as hardcore as the 78,125-bet-way bonus in the Vikings slot (the one NetEnt debuted in 2018). But it’s the only one that you can play and dance salsa to! Okay, maybe after some Tequila.

To do that, you’ll need 3x Scatter symbols anywhere on reels 1, 3 and 5. For that, you’ll get fixed 10 Free Spins. The bonus is not re-triggerable in a classic sense, but it can pass the limit if there’s a Walking Wild present on the reels after the 10th spin. Such Extra Spins can save your ass and can extend the bonus well past 20 rounds!

After all, no matter how hot the slot is when you enter the bonus, during the gunfight the Drive-by feature always stays on, meaning more Wild transformations and Walking Wilds! If anything, you’ll witness a bloody gunfight between the cops and the cartel.

Vaya con dios!

 

Conclusion

Final Verdict

Whether you’ve seen the Netflix series or not, the first impressions of this game are great, just like the video teaser.

The fact is, Narcos is not a feature overkill like some branded NetEnt slots (Guns N’ Roses, Jumanji, etc.) but rather lends much of its features from the simpler and more familiar video slot foundation that’s been around for years. This makes it easier to keep track of and follow the bonuses, especially for players who are new to online slots and want to get a taste of the world of danger, fast money and vices (read: GTA fans will love it).

So if you’re okay with the higher volatility aka less frequent main bonuses and a firepower that is (just) 1,506x the total bet, then take a shot and see how much of a killer slot it actually is.
