Gonzo's Quest slot - Free Play - Game Review
Gonzo's Quest is one of the most popular video slots ever released from NetEnt, and it’s not hard to see why the game has become one of the providers most esteemed and most well-played titles.
The game itself is themed around a South American historical theme, and you’ll be following Gonzo – an adventurer who sets out to try and find El Dorado, a fictional city which was featured in many mythical textures and stores from ancient South American culture.
Thankfully you don’t need to get your walking boots on as you can go and explore from the comfort of your home – and you’ll find yourself immersed into the gaming environment from the very first moment you step foot into the game.
Now, in terms of the actual game, it’s playable from as little as 20p per spin, making it perfect for those on a lower budget… but don’t worry if you’re used to playing at nosebleed staked either, as the maximum spin is capped at a whopping £50, so there’s plenty of win-potential for players on ALL budgets.
The reels themselves are set against a stunning backdrop, which incorporates an Aztec temple, and a jungle, all of which helps add to the game’s ambience and exciting gameplay. Symbols on the reels are all various types of mask, which comes in a variety of colours including grey, green, red, blue, purple, and orange.
There’s a scatter symbol present too, and this looks like a big golden stone, that typically uncovers the front of a hidden temple.
There’s an awful lot going on in Gonzo's Quest, and the first thing you’ll notice is the symbol removal feature, which basically removes any wining symbols, before replacing them with new ones. This gives you a virtually unlimited chance of continual wins – from a single spin – and it’s a game format which has become very popular in recent times… and it’s worth remember that Gonzo's Quest was one of the first slots to use it!
Now, in the main base-game, each and every time you make a win you’ll notice that a multiplier increases. The multiplier begins at 1X, and increases to 2X, 3X, and 5X with every consecutive win, and this continues until it’s at 5X, at which point it stays there, applying itself to any future wins.
There’s also a free spin round – which is known within the game as a free falls bonus – and this is triggered by landing three or more of the scatter symbols anywhere in view.
Now, once you manage to land them, you’ll be rewarded with 10 free-spins, and during the free-spins bonus, you’ll notice that the multiplier values have increased to 3X, 5X, 9X, and 15X. This – of course- give you a MUCH better chance of making big wins, and if you’re lucky enough to make it up to the 15X, you can be near enough guaranteed some massive wins, with the top symbol paying a staggering 1,000X for matching a 5-of-a-kind combination while on this top multiplier!
It’s possible to win more free-spins during the bonus-round by landing another three or more bonus symbols, and there’s no cap on how many spins can be won, making Gonzo's Quest one of the better games to play, if you enjoy long, exciting bonus rounds!
Pros: Exciting gameplay and a great bonus-round make Gonzo's Quest one of NetEnt’s best slots, by a long-mile!
Cons: The bonus feature is very hard to trigger, so don’t expect to hit it too early on!
