Main Game Attributes
Gonzo’s Quest Slot Game is a great hit made by NetEnt in 2011. At the time of its release, the game was amazed at its beautiful 3D graphics and interesting gameplay. The game was so successful that it spawned an entire franchise that is still alive to date. At the moment it includes the following games: original Gonzo’s Quest, Gonzos Quest Megaways, Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt (Live casino show), and the latest title Gonzo’s Gold released in October 2021. NetEnt even announced a VR version of this game in 2017, but since then there has been no news about it and the game is unlikely will be released.
At first glance, Gonzo’s Quest slot game seems like an ordinary slot. It has a 5×3 game field and 20 betways. But when you press the spin, the game is transformed. Instead of the usual spin animation, here the symbols seem to fall from above. Well done animation makes it look realistic. This fall is the main mechanic of the game, but we’ll talk about it later. For now, let’s discuss the appearance of the game. The developers use a fairly common theme of the Mayan and Aztec civilizations. But at the time of the release of the game, it was not so popular, so many people liked it. The playing field is a wall in the path of the main character Gonzo. During the game session, he patiently waits for us to open the passage for him to the golden city of El Dorado. The full game name is “Gonzo’s Quest. The search for El Dorado” but everyone uses the short name only. If you managed to catch Big Win, then Gonzo will be incredibly happy about it. He will start running along the playing field, jumping and collecting coins in his helmet.
The RTP in Gonzo’s Quest is not that high but fine and is 95.97%. The variance is MED/HIGH and it is felt good. The wins are hit quite often. The max possible win is x2500 and it’s not very impressive.
The main game mechanic is called Avalanche. Every time you land a winning combination, the symbols that form it disappear. In their place, new symbols fall from above, which can bring additional winnings. Thus, you can start a chain reaction of the wins in just one bet. But the features of this mechanic do not end there. For each successful Avalanche, you will receive multiplayer for your winning:
- x2 – two avalanches;
- x3 – three avalanches;
- x5 – 4 or more avalanches.
From time to time, a symbol with a question mark will appear on the reels. This is a Wild Symbol. It also has its own peculiarity, it can replace the Scatter, which is quite rare in slots.
Free spins in the game are launched in a classic way. To get 10 Free Spins or how they are called in this game Free Falls, you need to land 3 scatters or 2 scatters and wild. During the bonus round, all the features of the main game are saved, and the main difference is the increased multiplier. During the Free Falls you will get:
- x3 – for one avalanche;
- x6 – for 2 avalanches;
- x9 – for 3 avalanches;
- x15 – for 4 or more avalanches.
The success can also be judged by the fact that many casinos still offer their users this game in the top positions. The game is required to play if for some reason you missed it. It is equally suitable for both beginners in gambling and experienced players. That’s possible thanks to MED/HIGH volatility, so players won’t need to play hundreds of spins to see some decent wins. So I advise you not to waste time and quickly go on an unforgettable adventure with Signor Gonzo.
