It’s time to leave the present behind and go back in time, back to the 80s! You’ll end up in the city of Medellín which at that time was in the grip of Pablo Escobar, drug cartels and violence! Set within the folds of Andean mountains, Medellín doesn’t look evil at all, but history knows better!
Things went wrong quite a while ago already when in the 70s, illegal cocaine trade became a significant problem in Latin America. Pablo Escobar used to spent his days selling contraband cigarettes and fake lottery tickets, but established the first smuggling routes into the United States in 1975. That’s when the bribing of the judges and that didn’t work out, Escobar simply ordered the murder of those not accepting the bribe.
We enter the city of Medellín during the 80s, when the rising demand of cocaine is doing harm to many and the city of Medellín is known as one of the most dangerous cities in the world as a result of a war set off by the drug cartels. The city has become victim of the terror caused by the drug war between the Medellín Cartel and competing cartels, resulting in massacres and the murders of police officers, judges, locals, and prominent politicians.
The Narcos™ slot is bringing you to the underworld of the 1980s Columbia. The video slot excitement will take place in Medellín, the city where it all began and where it all ended which promises you a world of action! Keep your head down as this game will take you on a dark but gripping journey of drug kingpins who were flourishing in Colombia during the 80s.
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, the Narcos™ slot will bring together all those involved in the hit series including the police, DEA and, of course, the Medellín Cartel and the man at the head of this empire…Pablo Escobar! Thanks to the lively animations, the Narcos series is brought to life on the reels and there’s nowhere to hide!
Watch your back in the Narcos™ slot and make sure you don’t take too many risks! Make sure you play the game safe and to that, you go for the perfect bet. To do so, you have 10 bet levels to choose from, to be combined with 8 different coin values.

Narcos™ video slot features
There’s no way NetEnt would launch a branded slot game like Narcos™ without some new innovations this Swedish software supplier is famous for. Therefore, you can look forward to a feature-rich game with features like Free Spins and Walking Wilds while NetEnt is introducing the trailblazing Drive-by and Locked Up feature. Meanwhile, the symbols will give you a true feeling of what it was like being part of the Pablo Escobar journey.
Before I’ll tell you all about the true slot action the Narcos™ slot is going to offer, you should know that there will be an amazing 243 bet ways to win! This way, winning combinations will be created without any win lines involved as any winning combination from left to right will be a winning one!
Walking Wild feature
Playing this game for a little while, it doesn’t take long to see that the Walking Wild has an important role to play in the Narcos™ slot. This video slot feature was introduced in the Jack and the Beanstalk™ video slot a long while ago and has been used in a few more NetEnt slots including Halloween Jack™ and Creature from the Black Lagoon™. It’s thanks to the proven success of the Walking Wild that this video slot feature can be found in Narcos™ as well.
The DOJ Wild badge can appear on any reel in the main game and during Free Spins where they substitute for any other symbol except the Scatter symbols and Locked Up symbols. When the Wild gets involved in a winning combination, the DOJ Wild Badge will keep walking which results in a Re-spin. As long as the DOJ Wild badge symbol(s) gets involved in a winning combination, it keeps on moving one reel to the left with each spin. The Walking Wild continues walking until there are no winning Wild symbols left. And if randomly another video slot feature gets activated, the Walking Wild stays on the reel until the other slot feature is over.
A true adrenaline rush will become reality when the Drive-by feature is randomly activated during the Main game. That’s when he Narcos™ slot shows its true colours and a car shows up from behind the reels. Bullets will fly around fired from inside the car and will be responsible for holes in the symbols, transforming some high value symbols into Wilds.
Locked Up feature
Activated when 3 or more Locked Up symbols appear on one row, the Locked Up feature will bring the biggest crook of them all to the reels! Although Pablo Escobar managed to escape prison once, this time he’ll be locked up, more than one time! Locked Up symbols will be responsible for the lock up of the drug kingpin, but Golden Locked Up symbols will be available during this video slot feature as well.
The Golden Lock Up symbol can reveal another feature including the Multiplier that will multiply winnings by either x2 or x3. If the golden case shows upgrade symbols, multiple symbols will be upgraded. Big Starting Value will result in an additional value added to the Golden Locked up symbol as a starting value.
The Locked Up feature starts with 3 initial spins but if new Locked Up symbols or Golden Locked Up symbols appear, expanding the existing cluster or creating a new winning cluster, the number of Re-spins will be reset to 3 again.
Last, but certainly not least, NetEnt added a Free Spins feature to the reels. When 3 Scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels 1,3, and 5 during the main game, you’ll be awarded 10 Free Spins. During these Free Spins feature, you’ll find the DOJ Wild Badge on the reels, while on every spin, there is a chance that one or more high value symbols turn into Wilds.
And if the Walking Wild is still walking while you’re running out of Free Spins, extra Free Spins will be awarded. This continues until there are no more Walking Wilds left on the reels.
