NetEnt joins forces with Gaumont to launch hotly-anticipated Narcos video slot
The gripping game recreates the dark story of El Patrón and is based on the worldwide TV hit series Narcos
The character of notorious gangster El Patrón, the brutal boss of the Medellin Cartel, takes centre stage in NetEnt’s latest blockbuster branded title, Narcos.
Based on the multi-award-winning crime drama from Gaumont, the five-reel, three-row video slot with 243 bet ways has the battle between the police, DEA and drug lords as its backdrop. It is set in the 1980s, as the scale and influence of the drug war reached its peak.
Narcos comes with Free Spins, where on every spin there is a chance that one or more high value symbols turn into Wilds. When Wilds are part of a win, they start walking the reel moving one step to the left with every spin which gives this game potential high-stakes pay-outs.
In addition to Free Spins, the game is packed with a variety of other features, including:
- The random Drive-By feature, which transforms some of the high value symbols into Wild symbols.
- The infamous Locked Up feature, which is triggered by three Locked up symbols landing on the same row, locks up random coin win symbols as well as the golden briefcase which delivers either multipliers, upgrades or big coin wins.
- The main game also includes Walking Wilds, which remain on the reels while a player is winning and move one place to the left with each spin.
“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 catalogue,” said Bryan Upton, NetEnt Director of Games.
Evolution USA, the global master licensing and brand management agent for Narcos, brokered the license agreement between the parties.
Gaumont is the studio behind the hit show Narcos which was originally released in August 2015.
