Narcos is the latest spectacular to come from the creative Swedish offices at NetEnt and it’s everything we’d expect it to be. Based on the Netflix smash-hit documentary series of the same name, Narcos perfects the battle between the police and the drug kingpins in minute detail. Chronicling the rise of the cocaine trade in Colombia and the gripping real-life stories of drug kingpins of the late '80s, this raw and gritty original series is expressed across a 5x3 grid of symbols which don’t disappoint.
Of the four characters on the reels, the most inspiring is that of Boyd Holbrook who plays the DEA agent known as Steve Murphy in the television series. To get the animated character to look identical to the real deal, NetEnt used a combination of 3D and hand-drawn styles, which would appeal to a wider gaming audience. Fear not, the violence and narcotics which is the core of the series has been toned down dramatically, thanks to the use of subtle and lighter animations. The aim of the game is simple; hunt down Pablo Escobar and win big cash in the process.
You’re invited into a word full of danger with fast cash, but only if you manage to keep a lid on the criminal activity. Boasting a 243 ways to win reel engine, Narcos is packed with exhilarating bonus features, all of which are in-keeping with the theme. Walking wilds which move across the reels whilst you’re winning, a drive-by feature which transforms high values symbols into wilds, a locked-up feature where you’re granted a random coin win and free spins can all be achieved by playing from as little as 20p a spin. Want to achieve bigger bounty? You can increase your bets to as much as £400 per spin.
Accessible across all devices, this mobile optimised slot delivers gaming pleasure completely on another level. Animated graphics (along with Mexican acoustics) draw you into the streets where the crime begins, all you need to do is try your best to stay clear of the hidden danger. Narcos has an RTP of 96.23% and is a medium to high variance slot, which means big wins are few and far between, but when you do win, you could be in line for a windfall!
At Royal Slots, the RTP of Narcos is 96.23%.

Playing Narcos on your mobile or tablet is ever so slightly different to playing on desktop or laptop devices. When accessing the game on mobile, you have the option to play in portrait or landscape mode and each comes with a different screen layout. In portrait mode, the 5x3 grid of symbols is positioned to the very top of the screen; just above this are links to the cashier, home, sounds and the menu. The spin button is housed to the lower of the screen, hovering just above your control panel.
In landscape mode, the reels are more prominent and appear larger in size. The links to sounds and the menu now situated to the lower right of your device, just beneath the large spin button. The control panel is housed to the lower screen as usual.
High value symbols are the two DEA officers and the wild badge of justice; each paying up to 300 coins a piece, the glamorous blonde and Pablo – both awards up to 250 coins. Medium value symbols are the flamingo and private plane, awarding a top prize of 120 coins each. Low value symbols as ever are the card values of J, Q, K and A, paying up to 40, 40, 60 and 60 coins respectively.
Does the Narcos Slot Have an Auto Play Feature?
Auto play options are offered to players who prefer a more relaxed gaming environment; simply choose 10, 25, 50, 100, 250, 500, 750 or 1000 spins to play out automatically at your chosen bet value.

The biggest rewards are reserved for those who manage to land the free spins feature. Thanks to walking wilds appearing, you could benefit from wins of as much as 1506x your total stake; which results in potential wins of up to £602,400!
The locked-up feature is awarded when three or more Pablo symbols appear on the same row and you know what makes this feature even more exciting? The addition of golden suitcases which award random big cash prizes. During this feature, only locked-up symbols and golden locked-up symbols will appear on the reels. Three or more connected symbols form a winning cluster and when a locked-up symbol lands adjacent to a winning cluster, a random coin value of between 1x and 10x your bet will be awarded. All spins within this feature are free. Should you be lucky enough to spin in a golden symbol as part of a winning cluster, one of the following features will be unlocked:
Walking wilds appear in both the base game and free spins and when wilds fall as part of a winning combination, they will remain on the reels and shift horizontally one place to the left with each spin – this hides the potential for great wins. Randomly during the base game, a feature known as the drive-by could be activated, which will transform some of the high value symbols into wilds.
Finally, three or more scatter symbols will award 10 free spins, and, on every spin, there is a chance that one or more high value symbols will turn into wilds. At the end of the feature, if there are walking wilds still in view, one extra free spin is granted until there are no more walking wilds on the reels.
