Gonzo’s Quest is based on the fact that Gonzo is going on a quest for the lost gold city, Eldorado. It features unique Avalanche mills in which you can earn up to a multiplier of 5 for each winning round. There is also a free drop bonus feature that allows you to get 10 free spins and a multiplier up to 15 times on the winning rounds.
Gonzo’s Quest has 5 reels and 20 paylines and is offered by NetEnt. With that, you have great graphics and animations. Gonzo’s Quest is based on the conqueror Gonzalo Pizarro (Gonzo). His goal is to navigate the Amazon jungle to find the lost golden city, Eldorado. You can play at 20p at £ 50 a turn, so it’s suitable for all levels of slot machine players.
Gonzo’s Quest is different, that normal drum reels are not used – you will see symbols falling from above. They call it Avalanche Reels – it’s quite similar to the Da Vinci Diamonds Tumbling Reels. You will see the Maya symbols explode and disappear when you form a winning combination. Then the remaining symbols will fall into the empty spaces with new symbols appearing at the top to fill the spaces. Then, the multiplier in the upper right corner of the screen will change from 1x to 2x (and possibly to 3x and 5x). So basically, you can get a 5x multiplier on every winning round.
The main feature of Gonzo’s Quest is the Free Fall Bonus feature – it’s triggered by getting 3 Free Fall scatter symbols on 3 consecutive reels. You will get 10 free spins (or free falls) and you will see that the multiplier meter has now changed. With each victory, the multiplier will go from 3x to 6x to 9x to 15x. This means that you can get 10 free spins with a multiplier of 15. You will see that Gonzo gets very lively when you win – he dances and even makes a moonwalk! Finally, you can also trigger more free spins / falls.
Gonzo’s Quest is an online slot machine very popular in the Scandinavian countries and is becoming a cult machine in the UK. I think it’s a medium to high variance game that does not give me big winnings. However, when I win big, it tends to be big enough – for example, I won more than 350 times my bet a few times in the free spins feature. It was Platinum’s first platinum game from Net Entertainment, and this one is still very played (and loved) today.
