Net Entertainment’s Gonzo’s Quest Video Slot Review

Gonzo’s Quest Video Slot review

Gonzo’s Quest is a Net Entertainment-powered video slot with 5 reels and 20 paylines. Playable from 20p a spin to £50 a spin, it was NetEnt’s first platinum game to be released. Based on the historical conqueror Gonzalo Pizarro (Gonzo), you will join him on his mission through the Amazon jungle in search of Eldorado (the lost city of gold).

Visually, Gonzo’s Quest was released way back in 2013 – it was NetEnt’s first platinum video slot and remains a very popular title with video slot lovers. With a Mayan feel, the graphically rich game sees the symbols appear on stones. You’ll see 7 different symbols on the reels with 3 of them depicting animals and 4 of them showcasing ancient masks. The blue one is the most rewarding giving you 2.5, 12.5 or 125 times your bet for 3, 4 or 5 in combination. There’s also a question mark wild symbol which substitutes for all symbols.

Classic spinning reels are not used in this game as the Avalanche Reels feature is used – this means symbols fall from above. The symbols explode upon creating a winning combination. Every time you have a winning combination, the contributing symbols explode and are replaced by new symbols. As a result, the multiplier in the top right-hand corner goes up from 1x to 2x to 3x and 5x respectively.

The Free Falls Bonus feature is what you need to look out for though. This can be activated when you get 3 Free Falls symbols on consecutive reels. You will receive 10 free falls (or free spins) with the multiplier values being 3x, 6x, 9x and 15x.

This means you can potential get up to a 15x multiplier on every free spin. Gonzo himself becomes quite animated when you have a decent win as he does a Michael Jackson-esque moonwalk. There are more free spins to win during the feature (by getting 3 Free Falls scatters on consecutive reels.

Gonzo’s Quest may be NetEnt’s first platinum video slot but it’s very popular and has a bit of a cult following. Medium variance, you can win up to 1,875 times your bet on each free spin with the 15x multiplier. The key to winning big is to get consecutive wins in both the base game and Free Falls feature where the bigger multipliers will hopefully work their magic. If you like Avalanche Reels video slots, NetEnt’s Cash-O-Matic also offers it.
