Medellín Cartel takes centre stage in the Narcos™ video slot
Gaumont’s TV hit series Narcos is now available in an action-packed video slot at the NetEnt Casinos. The Narcos™ video slot tells the dark story of the Medellín Cartel and the man at the head of Colombia’s drugs empire… Pablo Escobar! Besides the 243 bet ways, the game features Free Spins, Walking Wilds, and the trailblazing Drive-by feature and Locked Up feature.
Narcos™ video slot launch
Based on the multi-award-winning crime drama from Gaumont, the Narcos™ video slot shows the battle between the police, DEA, and drug lords as its backdrop. While the Colombian drug war came to rise during the 70s, the Narcos™ video slot is set in the 80s, as the scale and influence of the drug war reached its peak.
It’s not easy to bring the rise and fall of the most violent, ruthless and wealthy criminal organization in the history of modern crime to the five reels, but in my opinion, NetEnt did a great job. Opening this branded slot game, you’ll end up on the streets of Medellín which at that time was in the grip of drug cartels, violence, and the drug kingpin Pablo Escobar.
The Narcos™ video slot will bring together all those involved in the hit series including the notorious gangster Pablo Escobar, the brutal boss of the Medellin Cartel, but also the DEA agents Steve Murphy and Javier Pena. Of course, it’s the characters from the hit series that are portrayed on the reels. Thanks to the lively animations, NetEnt managed to bring the Narcos series to life on the reels, but no blockbuster without some good video slot innovations.
“Since we first announced the deal with Gaumont to bring Narcos to the reels, the anticipation among players and our operator partners has been huge. We are confident that the game will more than live up to its lofty expectations and add an exciting new option to our unbeatable branded catalogue,” said Bryan Upton, NetEnt Director of Games.
Where’s the action?
With the rising demand of cocaine, the city of Medellín was known as one of the most dangerous cities in the world during the 80s and now you have the chance to get in the middle of all the action! There’s nowhere to hide, so make sure it’s safe for your adrenaline levels to rise when the going gets tough!
Transferred to the underworld of the 1980s Columbia, a world of action is awaiting you! As a result of a war set off by the drug cartels, the city of Medellín has become victim of terror, resulting in massacres and the murders of police officers, judges, locals, and prominent politicians. Stay focussed as danger is around, especially when a car is coming from behind the reels in your direction. I know you can’t watch your back all the time and before you know, it can be too late and bullets will be flying all around.
A true adrenaline rush will become reality when the Drive-by feature is randomly activated during the Main game in the new Narcos™ video slot. This is the moment, the drug war shows its true colours, creating holes in some symbols, transforming them into Wilds.
The Narcos™ slot comes with Free Spins as well and during each free spin, there is a chance that one or more high value symbols turn into Wilds. When Wilds are part of a win, they become Walking Wilds, moving one step to the left with every spin which gives this game potential high-stakes pay-outs. This same Walking Wild will be responsible for some good action during the main game as well.
The infamous Locked Up feature locks up random coin win symbols as well as the golden briefcase which delivers either Multipliers, upgrades or big coin wins.
