Gonzo’s Quest Slot Review
The discovery of the mystical golden city Eldorado was an obsession of every single Spanish conquistador that came to Latin America. NetEnt dedicated Gonzo’s Quest to one of them, the famous Gonzalo Pizarro, who tried to discover the exact location of Eldorado. The five-reel slot with 20 fixed palyines will take you to the jungles of the Amazon, where you need to assistance Gonzo in his search. He will generously reward you for your trouble. The Avalanche Reels with increasing multipliers will help you land several wins in a single spin, while the Free Fall feature comes with a boosted multiplier meter.
Gonzo will lead the way in the 2013 release and it seems that he has already discovered the main gates of Eldorado, because the reels of the slot are placed on the very gates. Gonzo will not be among the symbols that populate the reels, but there will be plenty of Mayan-themed icons. There are seven different regular symbols that appear and the most valuable among them offers 2,500 coins for five of a kind. The Golden Mask is the Free Fall Scatter that triggers the Free Fall feature and the Question Mark is the Wild that substitutes for all regular symbols.
NetEnt made sure that every single player could find his way around very easily. The rules of the game are pretty simple and even mere beginners will be playing like pros in no time at all. The 2013 release features five reels, three rows and offers 20 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, starting from the far left reel. To start winning payouts, spinners need to land at least three matching symbols on a payline. Betting starts at £0.20 per spin, but if you set the coin value (£0.01 – £0.50) and the bet level (1-5) to the max, you can bet as high as £50 per spin.
Gonzo’s Quest benefits from Avalanche reels. This means that reels don’t actually spin, they fall down from the sky. Every time gamers form a winning combination, the winning symbols explode, making room for new symbols to appear. Also, for every successive win, the win multiplier rises and it can go up to 5x during base game.
The Free Fall feature is actually the Free Spins feature and it is triggered when three Free Fall Scatters appear in succession, starting from the far left reel. Gamers will get ten free Falls, or free spins and this time the win multiplier gets bigger, going from 3x to 15x for each successive win during the feature. It is possible to get more freebies during freebies.
We mentioned earlier that there is one specific mask among regular symbols that rewards gamers with 2,500 coins for five of a kind. If you manage to fill all the cells with this particular mask, you will get a total of 50,000 coins. The Avalanche reels and the increasing win multiplier will help you land hefty payouts, especially during freebies. Gonzo’s Quest’s RTP is 96%.
