The renowned developer of online casino games NetEnt has finally announced the launch of the long-awaited video slot titled Narcos and based on the popular Netflix series of the same name.
This exciting new addition to the developer’s portfolio of games brings the story of Pablo Escobar, also known as El Patron, to the reels. The boss of the Medellin Cartel takes centre stage in NetEnt’s new release.
An Exciting New Addition
Drawing its inspiration of the award-winning TV show from Gaumont, Narcos slot features a standard 5-reel 3-row layout and instead of paylines, it offers 243 different ways to win. The game depicts the battle between a number of law-enforcement agencies and drug lords.
Set in the 1980s, in the city of Medellin in Colombia, the game’s style reminds of the Grand Theft Auto video game series, with its reels populated by a variety of characters appearing as symbols.
Players are sure to benefit from a variety of exciting features on offer. The game’s Free Spins round offers a chance to turn any high-paying symbol (or more of them) into Wilds. But that’s not all since whenever they are a part of a winning combination, Wilds will start moving across the reels – one step to the left with each subsequent spin – which can result in handsome cash rewards.
Immersive Features on Offer
The list of features also includes the random Drive-By feature, where top-value symbols get transformed into Wilds, the Locked Up feature, triggered by three Locked Up icons, which has multipliers and neat coin wins on offer, as well as the Walking Wilds. The latter will send Wild symbols moving one place to the left with each new spin until they all leave the grid.
Commenting on the launch of the new release, Bryan Upton, NetEnt Director of Games, said that ever since they had announced the deal with Gaumont to bring Narcos to the reels, the anticipation among players and operator partners had been huge.
Upton pointed out that his company was confident the new game would more than live up to its lofty expectations and add an exciting new option to NetEnt’s unbeatable branded catalogue. You can play Narcos at NetEnt-powered online casinos!
