The Monkey Summary
Like a sliver of mature cheddar there are some things that simply get better with age: the Gonzo’s Quest slot is one of them. NetEnt’s most famous game comes with avalanches symbols that have spawned a thousand imitations like the Jungle Jim slot machine from Microgaming (that game is very good actually) but I think the original is best.
There’s really only one Gonzo.
Discover win multipliers that go up to x15 and free fall game mechanics as you follow plucky Gonzo attempting to crack the secrets of the Aztecs’ riches in El Dorado.
Let’s explore this mythical lost city of gold that even the most determined of conquistadors could not find.
Thankfully you have me to guide you through the dense jungle habitat meaning we’ll try and help you walk away with pockets full of gold coins.
Let’s see what makes Gonzo one of the most popular games online along with Rainbow Riches, Thunderstruck 2 and Fluffy Favourites.
Our intrepid expedition starts with an intro film to get you acquainted with Gonzo and his quest – the fearsome fellow has stolen a treasure map that will lead him to mythical El Dorado.
Next, you’re presented with the reels that sit in front of a jungle scene (complete with Aztec pyramids in the background). At the side of the reels, you have Gonzo himself, who will occasionally treat you to dance when you manage to land a particularly big win.
Overall, this is a very nice-looking game and one that stands quite the test of time. We can only think of the Jungle Spirit slot (Call of the Wild) as anything in the same ballpark. Oh and maybe Asgardian Stones.
Gonzo’s Quest Slot Game Play
Gonzo’s Quest has 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 pay lines for you to spin with.
Your symbols on the reels are made up of intricate stone carvings in different colours: light blue, red, orange, purple, brown, green and dark blue (from lowest to highest in value).
The wild symbol is the question mark icon and will substitute for other symbols to create matching combinations. It will only land on reels 2, 3 and 4.
Your bonus symbol is the Golden Mask symbol that features a chap poking his tongue out (how very rude of him!)
Gonzo’s Quest has cascading reels (or avalanches as NetEnt call them). This means that for each winning combo you make, those winning symbols will explode and disappear to be replaced by brand new ones that drop into place from above.
Each new winning combination will also increase the win multiplier (this is displayed at the top of the reels. When a non-winning result appears, the multiplier will drop back down to x1 again and the symbols will stop exploding.
Landing 3x or more of the Golden Mask Scatter symbols will trigger off the bonus feature. This will give you 10 free spins that are more like re-spins, and during these spins the multiplier ladder on top of the screen will triple in size.
Starting off x3 with the initial avalanche, it will go up to x15 with more than 4 consecutive free falls It’s also possible to re-trigger the bonus by landing more of the Golden Scatters.
Good lord! El Dorado really is in sight…
