Gonzos Quest Slot Review

Bonus Rounds and Payouts 

Gonzo’s Quest employs an avalanche reels feature which was created and first used by NetEnt, it is very similar to cascading reels. How it works, is pretty self explanatory, once the player has managed to record a win, those winning symbols will explode on the screen and disappear leaving a vacant space, allowing the items above to drop down into their place in the hopes of creating even more wins. This process will continue until the player does not register a win, think of it as your own personal money maker. The avalanche process has another feature that will get everyone grinning from ear to ear. This is due to the fact that there is a multiplier attached to the feature, and with every win, a multiplier is added and goes from a 1x to 5x. 

Additional Game Features 

NetEnt have designed a spectacular and even though it is more than 8 years old it still has features which are yet mirrored by other developers. The game has a Free Fall feature, in order to initiate this players will first need to land 3 golden free fall symbols on the reels, once accomplished, the entire wall of symbols will open and you will be given a view of the hero Gonzo as he begins to make his way to the hidden city which can be seen in the background. As soon as you see this you will be awarded with 10 free plays. As mentioned earlier there is a 5x multiplier during the base avalanche game, during the free falls feature this amount is increased to an eye popping 15x multiplier. 

Wild - this is represented by the symbol that has a gold question mark embossed upon it, unlike most other slot games this symbol has the ability to substitute all other symbols in order to create other, better winning combinations, no exceptions. 

Scatter - takes the form of the free fall symbol and as mentioned this is probably one of the most lucrative features the game has to offer. 

Symbols - all the symbols were evidently designed with the Mayan culture in mind, so players can expect to see a few different beastly looking creatures that have been carved out of stone, which make up the lower value symbols in the game. The higher paying symbols are numerous masks of varying colours; these include a blue mask with gold teeth and nose, a smiling gold and green mask with large earrings. 


NetEnt is known for creating graphically stimulating games, mix this with some epic features and storytelling animations and you have a game that will excite any player.
