Myth, Legend, And Incredible Slot Features!
Centuries ago, the myth of the golden city attracted many a curious explorer. Now, you can join Spanish conquistador Gonzo on an epic journey of conquest and crusades.
NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest slot uses a different type of reel setup, called Avalanche Reels. Here, the symbols don’t spin, but instead they fall down from the top of the screen. Winning combinations see those symbols exploding, leaving room for more symbols to fall down and more Avalanches to occur. This continues until there are no more wins. A Multiplier increases with each new Avalanche and keeps increasing until it reaches the maximum of 5x with four or more Avalanches. The Multiplier will remain at this maximum until there are no more winning combos.
Another awesome feature, Gonzo’s Quest offers Free Falls. When 3 Free Falls symbols appear on reels 1, 2, and 3, the feature is triggered with 10 free spins. Land 3 or more symbols again and re-trigger the feature. Any wins during this round are multiplied with the Multiplier up to 15x!
Step Into the Jungle
Gonzo’s Quest is a slot that goes that little extra to pull you into the story. A fun animated intro tells Gonzo’s story of going his own way in search of El Dorado. He wanders onto the reels and remains on the bottom left-hand corner, muttering to himself while checking his trusty map. The reels are made up of beautifully carved blocks surrounded by jungle, and when the blocks explode after a win, you can catch a glimpse of that shining golden city in the distance.
There isn’t much by way of music in this slot, but the sounds of the jungle can be heard while the symbols fall, inspiring your adventurous spirit. When winning combos are achieved, a fun Spanish acoustic guitar marks the victory, mixed in with the flute-like sounds of ancient civilisations.
