Netflix’s Narcos TV show is among the most popular on the streaming service. It reached global popularity in its first couple of seasons that chronicled the rise and fall of drug kingpin Pablo Escobar. It introduced us to legendary characters such as agent Pena before moving to Mexico for the following seasons.
NetEnt already released a slot based on the first couple of Narcos seasons, and its partner Red Tiger was chosen as the producer of the sequel titled Narcos Mexico. Expectedly, it follows the current story in the Netflix show, with a full-blown cartel war on the reels. You'll be thrown right in the middle of it, scheming your way to total domination over the bloody market.
Narcos Mexico is a 243 ways to win online slot with medium to high variance and an RTP of 95.7%. It offers wins of nearly 10,500x the bet and a very exciting (and bloody) bonus round where you'll make deals to make a fortune on drugs.
If you’re a fan of the Netflix TV show, you probably know what to expect. Narcos Mexico is a 5x3 slot game with 243 ways to win that features the Win Exchange mechanic. It’s set somewhere far away in Mexico in a shot-up cartel leader villa where things are already in motion.
Red Tiger has done a fantastic job with the graphics and sounds. This is a well-crafted slot that looks and feels great to play, so kudos on the visuals. You'll see the prominent cartel leaders on the reels, each one vying for supremacy. They are the premiums and pay a maximum of 5x for five of a kind. In comparison, the low-win card royals pay five times less.
The first thing you need to do to start playing is adjust your bet. The range goes between 0.10 and 10.00 per spin. The slot resorts to classic action in the base game, which means lining up premiums alongside wilds pays the biggest sums of cash. The Supply Drop feature will randomly boost your winning chances from time to time.
During it, a supply plane flies over the reels, dropping wilds in random positions. There’s another random feature in the base game called Double Cash. As the name suggests, it’s a modifier that doubles your wins.
Many online slots have gamble features, but this one has one called Win Exchange. Any win over 100x can be exchanged for the Cartel Spins bonus, where a bloody cartel war plays out on the reels.
If you don’t use the Win Exchange feature, you need three Cartel Spins bonus symbols to enter the round. You start with three respins on a 10x10 grid, with each cartel leader taking a position in the corners as a 2x2 symbol.
This is a Hold & Win respins feature with only blanks, cash mystery or territory symbols, and modifiers landing on the reels. Any non-blank symbol resets the spins back to three. The mystery symbols may reveal a multiplier; the phone symbols double your wins, while the plane symbol adds 1-5 points to each territory if it lands adjacent to it.
Each cartel expands its territory as you get more sticky cash territory symbols. When these symbols land on each other, they trigger a Cartel War. The leader with the most extensive territory wins this way and rules over Mexico's drug trade supreme.
The RTP of 95.7% goes in line with the medium to high variance. This is an online slot with 243 ways to win and a total maximum win of 10,486x the bet.
Narcos Mexico is an even better slot than the first one. It relies on random modifiers and an exciting cartel war in the bonus round which takes things to the next level. If you’re a fan of the Netflix show or you simply want a different concept of a bonus round in slots, we see no reason to skip this release.
