The series became an overnight sensation with a huge fan base all over the world and it gives us yet another demographic who can have fun playing our games.”
It is thanks to a deal with Gaumont, the oldest film company in the world and producer of the popular Netflix series Narcos, that this branded slot games can be developed. With the Narcos™ slot being released towards the end of 2018, the new branded slot game will most probably be released after the premiere of season 4 which is currently in production.

Available for viewing on the world’s most popular streaming service, Netflix, the show is currently available to view in over 130 countries, bringing a crime series to the screen created and produced by Chris Brancato, Carlo Bernard, and Doug Miro.
The series is set and filmed in Colombia and was initially based on the story of drug kingpin Pablo Escobar who became a billionaire through the production and distribution of cocaine.
Besides telling the story of Pablo Escobar, the series also has a focus on Escobar’s interactions with drug lords, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents, and various opposition entities.
However, it is in season 3 that the series, after the fall of Escobar end of season 2, continues to follow the DEA as they go up against the rise of the infamous Cali Cartel.
