It was only a few days ago, I found a first description of the Narcos™ slot which was announced in February 2018. It took NetEnt a good amount of time to create this branded video slot. Now, more than a year later, the preview video has been published, showing how NetEnt is going to bring the popular Netflix Series Narcos to the reels in the upcoming Narcos™ slot!
About the popular Netflix series Narcos
It’s time to start looking forward to the most dangerous video slot so far, based on the most violent, rich and ruthless criminal organization in modern history and the man at the head of this empire…Pablo Escobar!
El cartel de Medellín is coming to the reels, the most famous cartel from Colombia’s second city which the series Narcos is based on. But of course, the Medellín cartel wouldn’t exist without the drugs lord Pablo Escobar!
The Medellín cartel was already active during the 80s, but had it’s peak early 90s during which the most damage was caused by the cartel. As a means of intimidation, the Medellín Cartel conducted thousands of assassinations throughout the country during the 80’s and 90’s. The Medellín cartel which consisted of Pablo Escobar and his associates, made it pretty clear that whoever stood against them would risk being killed along with their families.
An estimation shows around 3,500 killed during the height of the cartel’s activities, including over 500 police officers in Medellín. However, there’s no official number due to the limitation of the judiciary power in Colombia.
The popular Netflix series Narcos is telling the story of Pablo Escobar, introduced as a ruthless yet obscure black market smuggler in Medellín. His chilling motto is “plata o plomo” – “silver or lead”. Local police either take a bribe and look the other way or receive a bullet for their troubles.
The drug baron’s rise, fall and ultimate death on a lonely roof-top make for a gripping true-crime drama which attracted millions of players over the world and even lead to a second part Narcos: Mexico!

An extended description of Pablo Escobar and the Medellín cartel can be found in my first article about the Narcos™ slot. Now, a few days later, I can also show you the preview video of the Narcos™ which will be launched on 23rd May!

The Narcos™ slot promises to introduce some trailblazing features like the Drive-by and Locked Up features and symbols that gives players a true feeling of what it was like being part of the Pablo Escobar journey.
On the background you’ll find the city of Medellín which was for a very long time in the grip of Pablo Escobar, drug cartels and violence but now flourishes with art and orchids! However, there’s no Narcos™ slot without picturing the second largest city of Colombia and the same goes for the characters from the popular Narcos series.
