About Gonzo’s Quest Slots
The first ‘platinum’ release from the leading slots developer, Gonzo’s Quest is one of NetEnt’s most popular recent online games. No wonder that many big casinos offer free spins on the slot when they’re dishing out promotions.
The game is packed with lovely animation, especially in the intro sequence, as we follow a hapless Conquistador on the lookout for El Dorado – The City of Gold.
While our Spanish hero may not find his gold, he certainly unearths plenty of Aztec ruins (seven different engravings), big prize multipliers, and free spins.
The game is played on 20 paylines, and there are two interesting features in the base game: the symbols tumble to the ground in NetEnt’s ‘Avalanche Reels’ style. If you line up winning combinations, the symbols will disappear to allow those above to fall into their place. These can then explode and the sequence continues.
Plus, when you hit a winning payline, the prize multiplier at the top of the reels progresses, from 1x to 2x, to 3x and 5x. Keep hitting consecutive wins and the avalanche multiplier increases.
There’s a Wild symbol – the question mark stone – and it substitutes for all symbols in the game. Look out for the gold mask symbol. This Scatter will activate free spins (or Free Falls, as they’re called here) if you hit three or more on the reels from left to right.
While tricky to trigger, you can at least benefit from increased multipliers in the bonus round. So, the initial avalanche gets you a 3x multiplier, the second 6x, and then 9x and 15x.
Anyone who’s played NetEnt’s Cosmic Fortune or Elements slots will know all about Avalanche Reels. Every developer has some kind of version of this, and it’s a great way to make the traditional spinning reels a little more interesting. It certainly taps into the current social media games craze – no wonder games like Gonzo’s Quest are proving so popular online.
