Gonzo's Quest is an exciting video slot game developed by NetEnt. It has an above-average Return To Player (RTP) rate of 95.97% and is packed with bonus features, such as Multipliers and Free Falls.
Gonzo's Quest Slot Game Overview
Gonzo's Quest is based on the Spanish explorer searching for El Dorado - the mythical city of gold.
Unlike traditional slot games, Gonzo's Quest features an innovative gameplay mechanic called the Avalanche feature, which removes winning symbols from the reels, making way for new symbols to land and potentially trigger successive wins. Meanwhile, a multiplier increases with each Avalanche.
This slot game has a 5-reel, 3-row, and 20-payline setup, as well as a medium/high volatility rating.
You can play Gonzo's Quest here at Slots UK for bet amounts starting from £0.20 per spin.
How To Play Gonzo's Quest
To start playing Gonzo's Quest, you need to set your bet level and coin value. The game is played with 20 fixed bet lines, and the bet level can be adjusted using the LEVEL selector. The COINS display shows the number of coins you have available to wager.
Gonzo's Quest offers a wide range of bet values, which may appeal to a variety of players. The minimum bet is £0.20, while the maximum bet is £5. You can choose the MAX BET option to play at the highest bet level with the pre-selected coin value.
The objective of the game is to achieve winning combinations on the bet lines. A bet line win is determined by the value shown in the Paytable, multiplied by the bet level. The win is then multiplied by any applicable multipliers.
Features & Symbols
The Wild symbol, which appears on reels 2, 3, and 4, can substitute for all other symbols to potentially help create winning combinations.
Gonzo's Quest introduced the innovative Avalanche feature, which causes symbols to fall into positions on the reels. If a winning bet line is formed, an Avalanche is triggered.
During an Avalanche, symbols in winning combinations explode and disappear, making way for the symbols above to drop into the spaces. This gives players the chance to achieve consecutive wins on a single spin. The win multiplier is increased with each new Avalanche, up to a maximum multiplier of x5 in the base game and x15 in Free Falls.
The game also features Free Falls, which are triggered if Free Fall symbols appear on reels 1, 2, and 3 along a payline; this activates 10 Free Falls. During Free Falls, the game uses the same bet as the round that activated them.
Any winning combination during Free Falls triggers an Avalanche, just like in the base game. The win multiplier during Free Falls is even higher, with a maximum possible multiplier of x15. Additional Free Falls can be won during the Free Falls round by landing more Free Falls symbols.
At the end of the Free Falls round, the total win from Free Falls is added to any wins from the round that activated Free Falls. The game then returns to the round that triggered the Free Falls feature.
Paylines & Ways to Win
Gonzo's Quest is played with 20 fixed paylines, which means all 20 paylines are active on every spin. Payline wins are paid if at least 3 matching symbols appear in succession along a payline starting from the leftmost reel.
Simultaneous wins on different paylines are added together.
