Graphics and sound
Let’s go behind the scenes in an exclusive interview with members of the development team responsible for developing this exciting and thrilling shoot-out game. First up are Art Director and Game Production Lead, Matthew Butler and Johan Stenlund. They were very kind to grant us a quick behind-the-scenes peek at the massive wins and challenges that come with working on high-profile slots like this. According to Matthew, he mentioned that building the game largely on an entire TV series is quite difficult as Narcos comes with varied settings, timelines and characters. They needed to choose settings and characters that complement the gameplay and fit the story arc.
One of the fun things about this slot is that the phone booth that is on the left-hand side in the base game might ring. According to Johan, he stated that, initially, the phone was set to ring from time to time, but eventually, the team felt that it is a bit obnoxious to leave it that way. So, the phone now will just flash. That is set to happen quite rarely. Additionally, if a player chooses to click the phone during the time it flashes, a voice sounding like Pablo answers. This voice-over was done in the studio by one of our Spanish artists.
Narcos slot has a medium-high volatility level and a return to player percentage of 96.23%. You can use the controls located below the reels to personalize the game to your liking, by adjusting your bet and coin value.
Matthew continued to add that there were challenges of making sure like their character portraits are liked by the actor talent and they fit perfectly into the game. When asked about the overall development process, he stated that the look and style chosen is more stylised with a mix of 3D and hand-drawn graphics. They did not want to make use of photographs or films in the game as they were looking to take the Narcos title to a gaming audience who are more familiar with triple-A gaming consoles. Also, they thought the gameplay and style will be as alluring to our massive casino audience.
Matthew further talked about how the team ensured the narcotics and violence of the series is toned down. We tried to offer a subtle game to add a daintier feel to the gaming experience. After all, this is a slot game! You are sure to win an immense amount of cash as you hunt Pablo. Furthermore, we ran with the good versus evil theme, which runs all through the story. Sure, Pablo, to some people, was considered a saint but to most, he was a dangerous and ruthless criminal. But, it’s all up to the players to choose which symbol to be on the lookout for.
On the slot, you have the DEA Wild and the Pablo Lock Up which gives incredible and thrilling results in addition to immense potential wins! Talking to Johan the Game Production Lead gave us insight into what players are going to enjoy in this slot. The brand is well-recognised and very strong. As a result, you can be sure that the slot comes with an impressive amount of fun things and features. In the base game, you will have access to the Walking Wilds symbols that can make the reels extra sticky.
In the case where you are lucky to win on a wild, you will see it on the next reel that appears on your following spin. That way, you get the incentive to spin the reels again as you will get to see what is in stock for you this time. As this is a bet ways game, the Wilds here can be very powerful. Additionally, when you get 3 or more Pablo symbols on one row, you are in for an exciting experience especially since we included the golden suitcase symbols, which offer massive random prizes.
With the Golden Suitcase symbols, players will get to see the suitcase symbols falling but will not get to lock them in, which is one of the nice things in the game. As a result, the massive potential of this amazing and super volatile game feature is fully emphasized. The Free Spins in this game happen on a background of one of the big shootouts that happened in one of the scenes in the series’ first season. In the feature, players will get to experience the awesome power of the Walking Wilds as it reappears one more time.
What makes the Free Spins feature special is that if the Walking Wilds are still on the screen it will keep going long after the Free Spins have been played out. This means that, as long as there are still Walking Wilds on the reels, you will continue to get to spin the reels for free. Since any spin on this game can land more Walking Wilds, there is the possibility that the round will keep going for a very long time. So, you need to keep an eye out for not just the Golden Suitcase symbol, but also the Walking Wilds.
Another feature players get to enjoy in this slot is the Drive-by feature where some high-valued symbols are transformed into Wild symbols. Also, there is the infamous Locked Up bonus feature which upon activation grants random coin wins to players. Additionally, when you get one of the Golden Locked Up symbols, expect a lot more amazing bonus features. Don’t just rush in! Ask yourself – Are you ready to step into the world where Pablo Escobar is King? If yes – give it a go!
