Gonzo’s Quest

If you like action-adventure games, then Gonzo’s Quest might be the ideal slots for you. Released way back in 2011 (i.e. ancient history in online casino time), this Mayan themed game became a near instant hit, and has continued to grow in popularity through to this very day.

Why the great love affair? Well, Gonzo’s Quest has a great backstory, following the conquistador Gonzalo Pizarro in his search for the legendary lost city of gold known as El Dorado. Along the way, as you join him in his expedition you’ll find great animation, the NetEnt original Avalanche Reels, and an inspiring soundtrack to match.

With 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 paylines, Gonzo’s Quest has an RTP of 95.97%, and delivers prizes for winning combinations of 3, 4, or 5 symbols.

How to Play

While Gonzo’s Quest was the first of NetEnt’s Avalanche Reel games, the fancy name and fun feature (more below), in no way affect the overall simplicity of the game. So how does it work?

As with any classic online slot machine, all the functionality is clearly laid out with the main game action unfolding across most of the screen. Along the bottom of your screen is where you’ll find the controls, which include what is called the keypad area, where you set things like the bet ‘Level’ (the number of coins from 1 to 3) and your coin value.

Once you click the spin button (the green circle with the arrows), the avalanche of symbols is set in motion, and if you hit a winning combination, the amount you have won instantly lights up on screen.

There is no progressive jackpot in this game, though there are plenty of opportunities for cash winnings, with a long list of winning combinations listed in the game’s paytable. The minimum coin bet per line is 1, and the values range from 0.1 up to 0.5 in whichever currency you choose to play. All 20 paylines are automatically activated each round.

Bonus Features

The main bonus feature in Gonzo’s Quest is undoubtedly the Free Fall feature which is triggered by 3 or more Free Fall symbols showing up in succession along a bet line from left to right. One such combo in a round win you 10 Free Falls, while two onscreen combos at the same time grant you 20.

The action of the Free Falls bonus takes place following a short animated sequence, with Gonzo leading you to the golden pyramid, and its opportunity for more coin wins with an up to 15X multiplier. When this fun bonus round is done, Gonzo will escort you back to the main play area with the (hopefully) additional winnings added to your overall sum.

There is also a wild symbol in this game which substitutes for any other symbol required to form a winning combination.

Final Verdict

Gonzo’s Quest, along with Starburst, some might say, form NetEnt’s Holy Grail of video slots. That is, these two online slots have done what few other have succeeded in doing to-date – and that is truly standing the test of time. No matter how many years have passed since its release, Gonzo’s Quest never grows stale. In fact, through familiarity we’ve actually grown fonder.
