Focus on Narcos Slot
Visually based on the Netflix series of the same name, Narcos features characters from the show including Escobar himself and the two lead detectives tasked with bringing him to justice, Steve Murphy and Javier Pena.
Played out on a cartoonish backdrop of a Colombian landscape, Narcos is a bright and colorful video slot game – in stark contrast to the dark and bleak world of narcotics smuggling – that comes packed with features.
Betting Rules for Canadian Players
Played on a typical five reel, three row gameboard, Narcos features the much-loved 243 ways to win mechanic. As the name suggests, this gives you 243 possible winning combinations, rather than specific paylines, to use.
You can adjust your wager with each spin by modifying the bet level and coin value controls, with spins starting from as little as $0.25 per turn. For those players in Canada wagering the maximum per spin, a handsome $150,000 bounty is on offer for the game’s biggest payout.
Gameplay of Narcos Slot
The gameplay of Narcos is fairly standard fare for a NetEnt title, with most of the action unfolding on the main gameboard as you seek to match three or more of the same symbol on one of the 243 winning combinations.
As ever, there are special symbols and bonus features, and we’ll cover these in more depth later in this review of the Narcos Canada slot.
Winning Symbols of Narcos
In addition to the playing card symbols that are customary in NetEnt video slots, there’s also a few items you’d expect to find in this battle between police enforcement and criminality – guns, explosives, rolls of cash and so on.
There’s also flamingos, which are indigenous to Colombia, a glamorous lady, a member of the Medellin cartel and detectives Murphy and Pena.
Let’s talk about the special symbols too. The police badge is Narcos’ wild, and this substitutes for all other symbols to create new wins – plus the ‘walking wilds’ feature, which we’ll cover soon.
The scatter is Pablo Escobar in his ‘locked up’ guise, and this boasts two advantages on your reels…
Bonus & Free Spins
Straight off the bat, if you land the scatter on reels one, three and five you will trigger the Narcos free spins game, with ten free turns handed out in the first instance (more can be earned via the same scatter method).
The walking wilds feature is in play during both the main game and the free spins round. Furthermore, where a wild features as part of a winning combo it then ‘walks’ to the adjacent reel for another spin.
Finally, Pablo’s ‘locked up’ round: reveal three of the scatter symbol on the same row and these will merge together. You will then play a host of spins with this feature intact, with your wins enhanced by a multiplier of between 1x and 10x.
So, why not step into the shoes of a narcotics detective as you look to take down Pablo Escobar – and some big prizes – in Narcos.
