Narcos is one of Netflix’s biggest hit TV shows. A series detailing the rise of the Colombian cocaine trade, the show portrays the tough and dirty drug trade. The show was based on the real life exploits of a Colombian drug cartel.
The show has a massive fan following around the world and as we told you in February, NetEnt is taking advantage of that popularity by releasing a licensed slot game based on the hit series. Players will get a chance to win big on a screen featuring five reels and 243 ways to win.
NetEnt uses many of the characters of the Narcos TV show and also uses some of the popular icons of the show for its symbols. The goal of the game is to get winning symbol combinations and the game features a whole set of them.
Players can settle for the low-value card symbols that include the A, K, Q and J cards. Next there are the mid-value symbols. These are the various items including guns, cash, rifles, grenades, small airplanes and flamingos. For players who want to win big, they should aim to score one of the high value symbols: a gang member, a blonde lady, and the two DEA agents from the show played by Steve Murphy and Javier Peña.
The DEA badge acts as the wild symbol in the game. It will replace all symbols in a winning combination except for the scatter and Locked Up symbols. The great thing about the wild is if it is part of a winning combination then it will remain on the reels and shift to the left. It will stay as long as it remains part of a winning combination.
The real draw of the game are the special bonuses. One of them is the Drive-by feature. This is randomly triggered and has a car drive by and shoot up the reels. The symbols that get hit become wilds – which will help players in winning the game.
Pablo Escobar also shows up. He is the Locked Up symbol and getting three of him will activate the Locked up feature. Players get three free spins and the symbols that will appear will be only Locked Up and Golden Locked Up symbols. If a player scores a Golden Locked Up symbol, they can get a variety of bonuses. Players can also get free spins by scoring scatter symbols, which are cars. Get three or more of these symbols and players can get 10 free spins where they have one symbol change randomly.
Overall Narcos is a great game and delivers on all fronts. Players should try it out when it arrives at their favourite online casino.
