Will you and Gonzo find the lost city of gold?

Based on the Spanish conquistador Gonzalo Pizzaro, Gonzo’s Quest slot is a 5 reels, 20 paylines game featuring cascading reels and free ‘falls’ games that will line your pockets with gold.

Created by one of the top casino software providers NetEnt, Gonzo’s Quest is so much more than just a graphically beautiful game. In fact, it’s probably one of their most famous and well-loved slot machines, next to Starburst and Jack & The Beanstalk.

But we are getting ahead of ourselves.

First the beautifully detailed theme

Which captivates you the moment the animation loads on the screen and you get the story of Gonzo, the spanish conquistador who leaves his fleet behind in search of the treasure hidden behind rocky Aztec mountains.

With animations of Gonzo dancing across the screen on some of the bigger wins, detailed backgrounds and symbols that set you in the Aztec jungle, the search for the lost city of gold, Eldorado, has never looked so good.

There’s no high card symbols. Each symbol has been crafted to blend in with the Aztec slot theme beautifully.

Even the wild symbol, represented by the “?”, and the free falls symbol, which is the only golden tile on the reels, are significantly different than the others, so you can distinguish them in a far cleverer way than simply marking ‘Scatter’,’Wild’, or ‘Bonus’ in words.

Watch out for the Avalanche reels and multipliers

The feature that stands out from the beginning of the Gonzo’s Quest slot is that the reels don’t spin in the traditional sense. When you press the spin button the current set of symbols drop down and are replaced with more symbols from above.

If you manage to get a win on a payline the symbols will explode and will be replaced by more symbols above. At no extra cost to you.

The really good news is that on each consecutive winning cascade, a multiplier will increase starting at x1 for your first win up to a maximum of x5 in the base game.

It makes it possible to win decent amounts even if you don’t catch the bonus games.

Wilds, free falls and multipliers all make an appearance in this NetEnt game

Free fall into the grove of the Aztec god

In the base game Gonzo will reward you with some semi-decent wins, especially if you get those big multiplier wins, however it’s in the free fall (free spins) games that will you’ll find the big pesetas.

If you get 3 golden free fall symbols line up on reel 1, 2 and 3 you be rewarded with 10 free spins.

The great thing here is that the wild also substitutes for the free fall symbol.

So getting these high paying games is not as hard as you might think.

That said, be careful with your budget, and calculate for a good 200 spins. Sometimes they come twice in a row, and other times it feels like they will never come at all.

Rock’n roll into the golden kingdom

Once the big stone door rolls away to reveal the free spin reel, you’ll notice that the multipliers have increased, giving you x3 on a single win to x15 on five consecutive falls.

This is where you can get the highest possible payout of €93,750. We’ve managed to get 100x our bet wins on several occasions, but have seen others reach upwards of 1,000x.

It doesn’t reach the heights of IGT or WMS games, but you’ll be hard pressed to find as many thrills.

Android phone, iPhone and tablet friendly

If you are a fan of mobile casino games, and you want to try out this video slot then you are in luck.

Available to play at some of the top NetEnt casinos, like BGO and Casumo, you’ll find all the same great graphics and sounds on your tablet and smartphone.

You won’t get the intro video, or Gonzo dancing, but that doesn’t make any less enjoyable.

Watch the symbols tumble down your screen and explode into dust on a win as the Gonzo’s Quest mobile slot continues to impress.

Constant action and entertainment

Big wins are not easy to come by, but its the fun and spirit of the Gonzo’s Quest slot machine that will keep you coming back to play.

And then one day, on one crazy spin, you’ll see that 15x multiplier flash on your screen on a 5 symbol win and you’ll be booking your next flight to Peru, courtesy of the famous NetEnt explorer.

Watch Gonzo do his moon walk on a win, jump for joy or collect your golden coins in his conquistador hat.

There’s plenty of small wins, which makes this medium to high variance slot act more like a low to medium.

However the potential for big wins in the free falls increase the volatility, so real slot players who want that big win thrill, know where to find it.

That said, as it doesn’t have many bonus features, it’s simple game play and constant wins will appeal to beginners who are looking for instant gratification.

Something, for everyone

What we are saying is that NetEnt create an almost perfect game that appeals to a wide variety of players and keeps your attention long after you’ve run out of budget.

Which doesn’t always make him easy to love, so in our frustration we have found ourselves switching to other online slots like Game of Thrones or Titan Storm, for something a little different.

But in our hearts, we always come back searching for that city of gold.

Few beat the Gonzo’s Quest video slot thrill.
