Narcos Video Slot

Mar 27, 2019

Careful amigo! Narcos video slot™ is a game filled with characters who live in a world of danger, fast money and all manner of vices. Keep your head down, because these guys don’t mess around.

The game – a 5-reel, 3-row video slot with 243 bet ways – is based on the global hit Netflix series Narcos. Features include Walking Wilds, which remain on the reels while you’re winning and move one place to the left with each spin; the Drive-by feature, which transforms some of the high value symbols into Wild symbols; and the infamous Locked Up feature, which (when activated) awards a random coin win. Land a Golden Locked Up symbol, and you can unlock even more great features! 3 Scatter symbols appearing anywhere on reels 1,3 and 5 gives you 10 Free Spins.

There’s no rest for the wicked. If you really are willing to dip your feet into the dark underworld of 1970s Colombia, where Pablo Escobar reigned supreme, then by all means, give this slot a spin. Vaya con dios!

Behind-the-scenes of Narcos

Interview done and written by Corey (Game Developer)

The long-awaited Narcos video slot is here!

To celebrate, we’re giving you an exclusive interview with the team responsible for bringing this exciting shoot-out of a game to life! We talked to Art Director Matthew Butler and Game Production Lead Johan Stenlund, who were kind enough to give us a behind-the-scenes look at the big wins and challenges of working on such a high-profile branded slot.

Can you share some insights about the inspiration behind the game?

Matthew ButlerMatthew, Art Director

Trying to build the game around a whole TV series is quite tough, especially since Narcos has such varied settings, characters, and timelines. We had to pick out characters and settings that would complement the gameplay, be recognizable to the player, and fit the story arc from the show. We also had the added challenge of making sure the actor talent liked their character portraits and that they fit into the game we were designing.

Can you give brief a recap of the overall game development process?

The look and style of the game we chose was more stylized, a mix of 3D and hand-drawn. We didn’t want to use film or photographs in the game; we wanted to take the Narcos title further out to a gaming audience, one that would be more familiar with AAA gaming consoles. We think the style and gameplay will be just as enticing to our huge casino audience, of course.

We also toned down the violence and narcotics of the series. We tried to make it a bit more subtle to add a lighter feel to the game. After all, it’s a slot! You’re going to be winning a load of cash as you’re hunting Pablo.

We tried to play on the good versus evil theme that runs through the story. Pablo may have been a saint to some people, but let’s not forget he was a ruthless and dangerous criminal to most. But we leave it up to the player to decide which symbols to watch for. Both the Pablo Lock Up and the DEA Wild give exciting results and huge potential wins!

What will the players and operators enjoy the most? What in the game will make Narcos a strong NetEnt brand? Any new features or something else?

Johan StenlundJohan, Game Production Lead
The brand itself is, of course, a very strong and well-recognized brand. The game has a lot of features and fun things that it brings to the table:

In the main game you have walking wilds, which will hopefully make the game sticky. When you win on a wild, it will walk to the next reel on the player’s next spin. That gives the player an incentive to spin again and see what the wild will give them this time. And since the game is a betways game, the wilds are very powerful!

The lockup feature—which can be triggered by landing three or more Pablos on the same row—is also very exciting, especially after we added the golden suitcases for big random prizes. The nice thing here is that the player will see suitcases landing but not always lock them in, which will help emphasize the high potential of this super volatile game mode.

The free spins take place against the backdrop of a big shootout right out of the show’s first season. In this feature, the power of the walking wilds comes into play again. The cool thing here is that the feature will continue even after the number of free spins has played out as long as there are walking wilds on the screen. Since any spin can bring more walking wilds into play, the feature can go on for a very long time.

Any other curious / fun / exciting information you wish to share?

One fun thing is that the phone booth on the left side of the main game can actually ring. At first, it would play a ringing sound from time to time, but in the end we felt it was a bit too obnoxious. Now it will just flash instead, and quite rarely at that. If the user clicks on the phone while it’s flashing, a voice that sounds like Pablo will answer. The voice-over for this was done in our studio by one of our artists who is from Spain.
