Gonzo’s Quest: Online Slots Theme & Overview
Gonzo’s Quest ‘ The Search for El Dorado’ is a 5 reel, 3 rows, and 20 winline slots game developed by NetEnt. This engaging slots game was – and continues to be – a revolutionary game as it was the first to implement the Avalanche Feature.
The fast game-play, sensational 3D animated graphics, and captivating sound effects as well as an interesting bonus feature make this a truly enjoyable gaming experience.
The journey begins with an introduction video to Gonzo: The Spanish conquistador who stole a treasure map and jumped ship off the Peruvian coast in 1541, on his search for the lost cities of gold. The intro leaves you to primed to continue the adventure, accompanied by Gonzo who remains a constant feature on the screen… Scratching his beard in boredom if you take too long to stake your wager, and dancing for joy when you score a winning payout.
First launched in 2010, this game set itself apart with its unique Avalanche Feature instead of classic reels. With this feature, symbols fall into place from the top, and those that form winning combinations are destroyed to make room for new blocks of symbols to fall – thereby creating more winning possibilities. All of the symbols feature beautifully rendered Incan iconography carved into stone blocks.
- Each spin starts with a 1x multiplier. This increases with consecutive wins in the same game round to 2x, 3x, and then 5x
- Wild Symbol: A grey block with an encircled gold question mark. It substitutes for all symbols including the Free Fall symbol
- Free Fall Symbol: A solid gold medallion with a face engraved in the middle
Special Bonus Feature
Instead of the usual ‘scatter’ symbol that other slots games have, free spins are triggered by getting 3 Free Falls symbols on the same line, which gives players 10 extra free spins. However, due to the unique avalanche and multiplier features of the game, players could hit a mega big win and enjoy a really lucrative payout.
Coin Values & Bet Levels
Players can control the size of bets using the “coin value” and “bet level” buttons. Gonzo’s Quest offers coin values of .01, .02, .05, .10, .20 and .50 and bet levels of 20, 40, 60, 80 and 100. The minimum bet per spin is .20, and the maximum bet is 50.00. The maximum coin payout is 2,500 x the bet per line.
While this may not seem particularly exciting as there is no jackpot feature, this is where the multiplier and free falls feature make this game truly exciting:
- The max multiplier is 5x in regular gameplay and 15x during Free Falls
- Highest win per line is 625 x the total bet in regular gameplay ( with 5 x multiplier) and 1,875 x with Free Falls
- There are 20 active win lines, which means players can have multiple chances of winning from a single spin
The RTP on this slots game is 96%, which is quite average, but its medium variance means that players will enjoy medium-sized wins with medium frequency. The Free Falls feature also means that players stand a reasonable chance of hitting a big win.
This entertaining and superbly crafted slots game retains a strong position amongst video slots for good reason. Fully optimised for mobile as well as desktop casino fans, the gameplay is seamless across a multitude of devices and operating systems.
