Gonzos Quest Slots
Gonzo's Quest – The Search For Eldorado is an epic 25-line explorer aztec themed online slot developed by NetEnt .
This adventuresome slot machine will take you on a heroic quest through the jungle with Gonzo in the hunt for lost treasure with the innovative Colossal Avalanche reels multiplier feature.
The graphics and animations set up the gameplay beautifully with a cut scene that sees Gonzo grabbing a map and heading off on his own to find the Aztec treasure. The symbols are carved stone idols in Aztec designs, with a temple in the jungle as a backdrop. There is also a Wild symbol – a question mark – that substitutes for all the other symbols.
You can stake a minimum of 20p to cover all the paylines on stake level one, rising to a maximum of 50p on stake level 100, so a single spin will cost you £50. Gonzo keeps a watchful eye on the winnings, and groans with frustration when you don’t hit the button quickly enough!
The sound effects are great, with the stone tablet symbols appearing with an authentic rattle and Gonzo chuckling and dancing to himself.
Bonus Rounds and Features
One key difference from most slots is the Colossal Avalanche feature – the reels don’t spin but fall into place. Every time you get a winning line, the tablets explode into dust, and more symbols take their place.
Each time this happens, the multiplier gauge at the top of the screen goes up a notch – you could hit a 5x multiplier if your luck is in!
The explosive action is really exciting, as you see your wins mount up.
Multiplier Freefalls Free Spins
On top of the Avalanche feature, you can also trigger free spins plus a major multiplier when three or more of the gold idol bonus symbols appear in succession on the reels. Gonzo takes centre stage to start the feature with another brilliant cut-scene, as he discovers a secret doorway to a golden temple. This triggers the ‘Freefalls’ – ten free-spins – with a 3x multiplier. If you get consecutive wins, then the multiplier increases to 6x, 9x and then 15x. You can imagine the avalanches of gold this can produce!
Whenever you get a big win, the reels shower gold pieces and Gonzo leaps into action to catch all that lovely lucre in his upturned helmet.
To sample its delights for free before staking real money you can try the demo mode option at various online slots and bingo sites with Gonzos Quest slot such as Jackpotjoy Bingo and Virgin Games. You don’t have to log on – you don’t even have to be a member – and it is the perfect way to get to know the game inside out.
Gonzo’s Quest is a beautifully designed slot where the chance for a big win is only ever a few clicks away. The Avalanche feature is exciting and means the multiplier comes into play a great deal. This keeps you entertained while waiting for the bonus round – the bonus symbols are pretty shy on this slot, it must be said, although when they do appear and the reels part, you are guaranteed a pretty amazing payout. Gonzo plays his part by moonwalking across the screen, and other antics, and with a return to player of 96% its enough to keep anyone happy.
