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.

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.
