Hunt for the city of gold with Gonzo in Gonzo’s Quest
If you haven’t hear about the Spanish conquistador Gonzalo Pizarro, then NetEnt has rolled out a slot game to educate you about him, and help you get rich in the process. Gonzo was an explorer and is famous for his conquest to find out the city of gold, El Dorado. In this slot game, you accompany him to find the lost city, trekking through dangerous jungles and uncovering mayan symbols along the way. But what’s most important is that Gonzo is a generous man, and he rewards you handsomely for every little finding, be it a mayan symbol or even the less prioritised ones like the deck of cards.
Gonzo’s quest is a 5 reel and 20 payline game. The game has a really catchy explorer theme, and the background of the slots and the archeological feel of the symbols add to the ambience of the game. The game is playable from just 20p a spin to £ 50 making it an ideal game for casual players looking for a bit of fun. The background soundtrack in the base game also does justice ot the game by providing an air of thrill and suspense as you spin the reels in your quest to find El Dorado.
Gonzo’s quest does not have any wild symbols. But if you think that this is going to affect your gameplay then you’re pretty wrong. Gonzo provides you with a multiplier, a free spins bonus round and a new concept called avalanche reels in the base game. The avalanche reels work like a block arcade game. When you have a winning combination, the reels in that payline explode and the symbols above them slide down to take their place. This way, the reels don’t really spin when you hit the spin button. Every time you get a winning combo, the progressive multiplier keeps increasing from 1x to 5x.
The Free falls feature is triggered when you get 3 or more scatter symbols. Here you get 10 free spins and the progressive multiplier changes from 1x – 5x to 3x – 15x and increases from 3x for every successful win in steps of 3. This means that from the 5th spin you can get a 15x stake multiplier up to the 10th spin if you get a winning combo in every spin. The best part is that you also can retrigger this feature during the bonus round, which can give you 10 more spins.
Gonzo really is the rock star of this game and NetEnt’s animations in the portrayal of this explorer is pretty good. The game has some really decent rewards for almost all combinations and can get you rich even if you don’t find out the jackpot waiting for you at El Dorado in the end of the game.
