Real money video slots cover any number of themes. From childhood classics like Jack and the Beanstalk to the Wild, Wild West, NetEnt has emerged as an industry leader in quality gaming content. Through advanced technology and cutting-edge innovation, when this gaming giant releases a new game, casino operators and players take notice.
See How Narcos Video Slot Machine Highlights NetEnt’s Latest Release
Riding the immense popularity of the hit series Narcos, Net Entertainment followed suit with the release of the video slot bearing the same name. The company joined forces with Gaumont production studio for this latest creation. The game recreates the gripping story of El Patron. He is the notorious boss of the feared Medellin Cartel and he takes center stage in this new video slot. The game was recently highlighted on the company website.
The theme is based on the award-winning crime drama from Gaumont. The game is a five-reel, three-row video slot with 243 ways to win. The battle rages on between the local police, DEA and various drug lords as the central characters. The era is the 1980’s when these types of drug wars were at their peak.
Narcos offers free spins as one of its top features. Each of these free spins comes with the chance to turn some high-value symbols into Wilds. When a Wild is part of a win, another game feature moves a reel one step to the left with every additional spin. This is when some of the biggest payouts can be won.
Along with the game’s signature Free Spins, Narcos also offers some exciting features such as:
- A random Drive-By. This turns some high-value symbols into Wilds.
- Locked Up. This feature is triggered by three locked-up symbols that land in the same row. It locks up random coin win symbols along with the golden briefcase. This delivers either multipliers, upgrades or big coin wins.
- Walking Wilds. In the main game, these remain on the reels while a player is winning. They move one place to the left with each additional spin.
Bryan Upton is NetEnt’s Director of Games. He added the following insight in this press release:
“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 catalog.”
Gaumont’s role as the studio behind the hit show Narcos was blending the authenticity with the gameplay mechanics. It first released the Narcos brand through Netflix in August of 2015.
Also in the mix was Evolution USA. This is the global master licensing and brand management company for Narcos. It role was to broker the license arrangement between the two parties.
