Review of Gonzo's Quest From NetEnt
Gonzo’s Quest is a platinum 3D video slot from NetEnt designed with the very innovative Avalanche feature. It is a 5-reel, 3-row and 20-payline game with wilds, scatters, multipliers, free falls and lots of other features to get you collecting nice payouts.
In the cinematic intro for Gonzo’s Quest you’ll see Gonzo leaving his ship in search for treasure in the lost city of El Dorado located deep in the Amazon jungles. In the main game you’ll then see him sitting to the left of the main game window.
Gonzo's Quest - Setup and Avalanche Feature
The Gonzo's Quest video slot reel symbols come in the form of square shaped stones with mystical looking faces which looks good and takes into account the theme of this adventure-themed online slot. The Question Mark symbol marked on grey stones serves as the Wild in this game and substitutes for all reel symbols including the Scatter symbols.
However, this new NetEnt video slot is popular for the Avalanche feature which we’ve already mentioned and the Free Falls bonus rounds. If you’ve never played NetEnt online slots with the Avalanche feature before, you’ll quickly find that playing Gonzo’s Quest is quite unlike any other slot game you’ve played - unless you’ve played NetEnt slots like Cosmic Fortune or Elements The Awakening, just two other visually impressive slots definitely worth a try. You'll find the full range (+ selected IGT and MicroGaming titles) at the award winning www.mrgreen.com.
Instead of spinning reels as you typically would on a traditional video slot, when you hit a winning payline, the winning symbols explode and get replaced with new symbols that fall from above to potentially create more winning combinations, giving players more opportunities to win.
Each of the spins that triggers an avalanche adds a multiplier. Get one avalanche and you’ll receive a 1x multiplier, get another avalanche and you’ll get a 2x multiplier, three consecutive avalanches will generate a 3x multiplier and four avalanches will earn you a massive 5x multiplier on your wins.
Gonzo's Quest Free Falls Feature
The gameplay in Gonzo’s Quest slot is good, but it wouldn’t be complete without some free spins. But when you play Gonzo’s Quest they come in the form of “free falls”. If you hit 3 or more of the golden icon symbols on any active payline (and the great thing is that the Question Mark symbols can substitute for these) you’ll see Gonzo himself appear on the reel symbols travelling towards the mystical city of El Dorado. You’ll get 10 free falls and wins during the Free Fall bonus round are multiplied by the multiple displayed at the top of the game up to a maximum multiplier of 15x, so your wins can potentially be trebled.
Gonzo’s Quest Device Compatibility
Gonzo’s Quest video slot game is designed to be played in your web browser so you don’t have to download or install any software.
The game is also specifically designed to suit your mobile device. Gonzo’s Quest is one of a number of NetEnt video slots that can be played on iPhone, iPad and Android mobiles and tablets, and the mobile game is just as feature packed and fun to play as its desktop counterpart.
Gonzo’s Quest - Summary / Final Thoughts
Gonzo’s Quest is a low volatility slot meaning that you will get small wins on a frequent basis to make it an enjoyable experience, but moderate to high wins should be possible especially if you activate the free falls feature. The top jackpot in this non-progressive slot is 2,500 coins which is good. Although the gameplay can be intense, it's not a difficult learning curve for new players.
What I like about NetEnt slots is their attention to detail, especially in the graphics and smoothness of the game-play. You'll also find the biggest jackpot online is on a NetEnt game (Mega Fortune). See the difference for yourself at the multi-award winning Mr Green Casino - www.mrgreen.com.
