Gonzo’s Quest Review
Gonzo’s Quest™ is a very popular online slot developed by NetEnt. It is their first platinum video slot game designed to entertain both new and seasoned players. The slot character Gonzo the conquistador is based on the historical character of Gonzalo Pizarro, our conquistador sets off to find the lost city of gold called Eldorado.
In Gonzo’s Quest, you will find 20 pay lines and 5 different types of bet levels. Just as any other online slot you choose the number of pay lines and the bet level. The coin values are between 1 and 50 cents that will give you a minimum bet of €0.2 and a maximum bet of €50. In this review, we will go a little bit deeper into the features and gameplay in Gonzo’s Quest. Then we will give our rating of this slot.
Most players associate slots with traditional reel spins, but Gonzo’s Quest slot has replaced this functionality with a new feature called Avalanche. Instead of a reel spin where you can see the symbols spin, they fall into place in the reels instead. And if your symbols make up a winning bet line, they will disappear in an explosion and the remaining gap will be filled with more falling symbols. For each Avalanche you get a new chance of winning, and as long as there are winning bet lines, there are Avalanches. And the multiplier increases for each Avalanche. You can get up to a maximum of 5 multiplier in the main game, and up to 15 during free falls.
You will also find Wilder Joker Symbols pop up on your reels. Those will replace other symbols that can increase your chance of winning.
Most of the online slots today have a free spins feature, but since there are no spins in Gonzo’s Quest you get Free Falls instead (A Fall because of the Avalanche feature). The idea is still the same between free spins and free falls. To trigger this free fall mode in Gonzo’s Quest you have to get three free fall symbols. Then you will get to spin (or fall) another round, and there you have the same chance to gain another free fall. This is a quite cool feature since you are kind of used to traditional free spins at this moment. And the Avalanche feature is quite popular today and is implemented in other slots like Pyramid: Quest for Immortality.
