Gonzo’s Quest slot is a really unique and exciting release from the Swedish software giants, Net Entertianment. It’s one of those games that just ticks all the boxes, from its original theme to its defining features that will have you on your own quest for more of this great all rounder. Gonzo’s Quest doesn’t spin but rather comes at you like an avalanche, which is exactly the way it should be thanks to the avalanche falls that sets this slot apart from the others. The game is played over 5 columns, which you can’t exactly call reels since they don’t spin and has 10 bet lines to win on.
The setting of Gonzo’s Quest is not what you would expect from your average slot, it is set way back when in the 1500’s. The story is of a Spanish explorer called Gonzo, now this is not just some random character NetEnt woke up one morning and decided to create, but he is an actual figure of legends. The legend of Eldorado is where the whole theme for the casino slot came from and is based on a legend where a group of Spanish explorers found themselves off the coast of Peru with a map leading to a village made entirely of gold. The leader of this mythical place was said to be covered head to toe in gold dust so it goes without saying that the leader of the Spanish explorers wanted to find the land. Gonzo on the other hand had plans of his own and snatched the map in the middle of the night to go on his own quest for the riches. The slot centres around the lovable rogue, so you too can enjoy Gonzo’s Quest for gold and riches.
Gonzo’s Quest Avalanche feature
In Gonzo’s Quest the symbols don’t spin on reels like in other slots, but they fall individually down on top of each other over 5 columns and 3 rows. This is called the avalanche feature, the symbols will still need to make up the usual bet lines to win coin prizes. The best thing about the avalanche feature is that you have a multiplier plus chances for free spins with every win. If the symbols, which are all in the design of ancient South American masks and relics, make up a winning bet line then the payout is the usual, but you will then have a second avalanche fall for free, this time if a bet line is made you receive the pay out doubled, this will repeat itself again with the third fall paying out triple and the fourth fall paying out five times as much as normal. The falls will carry on until there are no more winning combos to be had, but the multiplier will always remain on five times. The game then reverts back to the original game until the next winning bet line for Gonzo’s Quest.
Gonzo’s Quest free falls
The free spins in Gonzo’s Quest slot is called the free falls, this is due to the avalanche feature, the falls are won when three golden symbols are aligned in a bet line. The golden symbols that will grant you the free falls will only appear on the first three columns, you are only ever given 10 free spins in this NetEnt slot. However the multiplier can go up to fifteen times the stated pay out for the lines. This works like this: the first winning avalanche line will pay out three times the amount, the second pays out six times , the third consecutive win will pay out nine times and if a fourth win in a row occurs then you get the fifteen times. The fifteen multiplier will continue until you make no more winning combinations in this casino game. Once the free falls are up, considering that you never won an additional 10 free falls during the initial stage, then your winnings are added to your balance and you go back to get some more avalanche falls with a little luck from Gonzo!
The graphics and sound effects are just the cherry on the cake for this video slot, as the added extra of the little Gonzo standing in the corner of the screen really makes the game complete. Gonzo does all sorts of little dances and random acts that just add to the fun atmosphere of Gonzo’s Quest slot. There is even an introduction video to start the game off, giving a little background into where this idea came from. There are 5 bet levels with a maximum bet of 50 euros per spin in this game, but the returns in Gonzo’s Quest far outweigh the bets. Great for the slot players who really want to enjoy the game as this is such an entertaining slot. The wild symbols will have a question mark on them and will stand in for all the other ancient symbols in this online slot.
