We Check Out NetEnts’s Latest Blockbuster Slot Narcos Based on the Hit Netflix TV Series!
Rizk Casino has recently added NetEnt’s blockbuster slot release to their casino, if you don’t have access to Netflix then you may not aware of the hit TV series which is based in 1970’s Colombia, where Pablo Escobar “The King of Cocaine” reigned as a drug lord.
NetEnt has done a fantastic job in replicating the overall theme of the TV series into a regular 5×3 reel 243-way cartoon stylized slot machine with main characters replicated into high paying symbols and bonus features that are very fitting for a drug/crime-themed slot.
Narcos has a variety of base game bonus features along with two main bonus rounds with features such as Walking Wilds, Drive-by and Locked Up features all helping to keep the action exciting and authentic to the TV show.
There is also a nice easter egg if you click on the phone booth on the left side of the main game whilst its flashing and Pablo will answer you, so keep an eye out for that nice little touch!
The 2 main bonus round is where things really heat up with several nice touches added to both bonus features that really helps add to the overall excitement whilst playing, you can check out all of the gameplay features in the promotional video below.

The Drive-By activates randomly in the base game potentially transforming any of the high paying symbols into wilds, that can also become walking wilds.
Occasionally the created wilds can also be turned into walking wilds, these then move across the reels to the left with each subsequent spin of the reels.
Locked Up Feature
The Locked Up Feature is activated when 3 of the special locked up symbols land on the same row in the base game.
These symbols are then transformed into a “coin win” cluster with 3 Re-Spins awarded, additional Locked Up symbols that add to the cluster edges will reset the number of re-spins. There is also a special Golden high-value symbol and suitcase which adds additional coin wins to the current clustered symbols.
The free spins round is triggered by a regular 3 Scatter trigger and awards an initial 10 free spins.
During the bonus round the Drive-By feature will activate giving you the chance of creating additional wild symbols which can also transform into walking wilds, you can also earn extra re-spin at the end of the bonus round if walking wilds are still present and created on subsequent spins.
Narcos is a visually stunning online slot from NetEnt and they have done a superb job is capturing the essence of the Narcos TV series with a style very fitting of a modern slot.
There is certainly enough action and mini-features to keep the base gameplay interesting, with both main features capable of producing some nice wins too. In our playtests we had bonus wins in the range of around 20x up to well over 150x stake with plenty more potential.
As long you approach this slot from a standpoint that it was never going to be a super high variance machine then you should have plenty of fun, with such big blockbuster release NetEnt do generally turn the win potential down a notch sacrificing the huge wins for more consistent gameplay, fun and action.
Definitely worth trying even if just to check out the glorious visuals created in this release!
