About Narcos Mexico

Hold on to your sombreros people, Narcos has returned to our screens - with Red Tiger’s Narcos Mexico slot game, based on the Netflix series of the same name. The original game, Narcos, was released by sister company NetEnt. However, Red Tiger has taken the lead with this one to pack even more of a punch, with bigger and better features and even more winning potential.

Visually, the games look similar, both with neat cartoon realism and a deadly theme. This one offers five fierce bosses, bullet-riddled vehicles, palm trees and mansions - money and danger combined to represent the reality of life.

The game is played on the standard 5-reel 3-row grid and offers 243 winning ways. You can land a win by getting three or more matching symbols from left to right. Although the game is highly volatile, the betting range is between 10p up to £10, which isn’t necessarily great for high rollers, but suitable for new and regular players.

In terms of payout, the lower-paying symbols are represented by playing cards - 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. The medium-paying symbols are bottles, skulls and dynamite. The highest paying symbols are the four Cartel bosses - which can pay up to 5-times the stake for 5 on a payline.

The wild symbols are packages of contraband, which can substitute for all regular pay symbols. There is also a scatter symbol, labeled ‘Cartel Spins’ which can trigger the bonus feature.

Narcos Mexico Win Exchange

If you land a win of 100x your stake or more then you can exchange the win for 3 Cartel Spins. If you win between 30x up to 100x your wager then you can gamble it for the chance to win 3 Cartel Spins. This will be played on a wheel of green and red segments. If it lands on green you win - red you lose.

Cartel Spins

If you land scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 then you will trigger this round. This takes you over to a new 10x10 grid. The four corners are the four cartel bosses. On every spin, the remaining cells will either show blank spaces, Mystery Territory symbols, Phone symbols and Aeroplane symbols. If any of these symbols land beside a Cartel boss then they will be activated and looked in place. The spins will then reset back to 3. The symbols act as follows:

  • Mystery Territory: Will reveal a multiplier value.
  • Phone: Doubles multiplier values to any territory symbol it is adjacent to.
  • Plane: Increases the multiplier on adjacent territory symbols between 1 to 5.

On future spins, if a new symbol lands next to an already activated symbol then they too will be activated. The Cartel’s territory will then increase over time. When activated symbols from different bosses touch, there is a battle and the stronger one captures the other’s territory. The feature ends when you either run out of spins, all the spaces are filled or you reach the win cap.
