Narcos Mexico is a slot game developed by Red Tiger Gaming, inspired by the popular Netflix series Narcos. This game is a follow-up to the original Narcos slot released by NetEnt, but it takes a unique direction, offering an exciting new bonus game based around the cartel wars.
Design and Gameplay
The game features neat cartoon realism that represents a deadly serious theme in a somewhat safe way. The action takes place on a 5×3 grid with 243 ways to win. The game is highly volatile, with an RTP value of 95.7%. The betting range is from 10 cents to 10 dollars per spin.
The symbols in the game include lower-value tiles depicting 9-A card ranks in front of items like skulls and dynamite. Premium symbols are the four cartel leaders, with the most valuable symbol bringing up to 5x the stake for a fully covered payline.
Narcos Mexico includes a couple of random modifiers in the base game, called Supply Drop and Double Cash. The Supply Drop is activated once the aeroplane passes above the screen and leaves wild symbols behind. The Double Cash will randomly trigger after you’ve had a win, doubling the prize amount.
The main bonus game, Cartel Spins, is triggered when 3 of the symbols land on reels 1, 3, and 5 in the base game or from the Win Exchange. This round takes place on a completely different game board 10×10 in size. Each cartel leader’s territory grows in size as activated symbols touch, leading to battles between leaders and potential territory takeovers.
Narcos Mexico is a different experience compared to the previous Narcos game. The game offers elements that leave Narcos in the dust, particularly in terms of potential. The maximum win has been pushed out to a much more respectable 10,486x the bet, making the game a great choice for players.
