A Quest for Gold
The lost city of El Dorado is said to have been made completely of gold but has never been found! Half a millennium ago, in 1541, a Spanish ship set sail in search of this golden city but one man on board wanted the riches all to himself, and his name was Gonzo. In this game’s introductory video, you see Gonzo leap off of the boat and into the water, taking with him the treasure map. On his own, he embarks on his own quest and you’re there to help him uncover the treasure by spinning big wins! Everything about this game is unique and expertly-designed. From the graphics, to the background, symbols and sound effects, this game will leave you wanting for nothing – except maybe just one more spin!
South American Symbols
El Dorado, the legendary golden city, is said to have been located somewhere in South America and no wonder then that the symbols which Gonzo has uncovered in this long-lost city have a distinctive, Mayan-style look to them. Each symbol has a different face on it, and looks as though it’s been carved from stone. The lower-paying symbols are a little plainer, whereas the higher-paying symbols have golden features on their faces! There are also two special symbols in Gonzo’s Quest: the Wild symbol and the Free Fall symbol. The Wild symbol can substitute for all other symbols and the Free Fall symbol triggers a number of free games!
Avalanche and Gameplay
Gonzo’s Quest is a unique slot in that the reels don’t really spin as much as they do fall! The symbols on the reels fall into place and each time a winning combination falls on the reels, the winning symbols disappear and new symbols fall into their place, like an avalanche. Each time this happens, the multiplier of the win increases! In order to get a winning combination, three or more matching symbols need to fall on a winline on consecutive reels from left to right. The reels will keep on avalanching if you keep managing to get wins and the multiplier can go up to x5! Payouts are paid in coins and the amount for each combination can be found by checking the ‘more info’ tab and then you can change your bet accordingly by using the arrows to increase or decrease the level as well as the value of each coin.
Free Fall Feature
As previously mentioned, the Free Fall symbol in Gonzo’s Quest slot game is extra special indeed! The Free Fall symbol is made from pure gold and triggers a number of free games! If three of these Free Fall symbols fall on reels 1, 2 and 3 (one on each reel), you’ll trigger 10 Free Fall free games! During these free games, the same rules apply to the game, yet the multipliers will have increased! In this bonus round, the multiplier of wins can go all the way up to x15 and give you super wins, mega wins and super mega wins! In fact, you can actually win up to an incredible amount of 62,500 coins in Gonzo’s Quest slot game.
A NetEnt Marvel
Gonzo’s Quest was developed by NetEnt and is one of the most popular, if not the most popular, video slot ever made! It’s super immersive, creative and when it first came out, it revolutionised slot games for everyone! It’s a really enjoyable game to play! It does have an autoplay mode which you can set so that the reels will spin themselves automatically for you without you having to do a thing, but we think that playing this game in manual mode is the only way to play. You can appreciate all of the graphics and the animations and it makes the game all that more exciting and immersive – especially when you trigger the Free Fall games as you’ll feel as though you’re on the quest with Gonzo himself!
