NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest is an epic journey through the lush, dark jungles of Mayan times. The presentation is nothing short of superb as you see the stone carvings, the jungles growth, blue sky, water spout and a warrior waiting to cheer you on. While it is not unique and other exist similar to it, it was one of the first to offer the avalanche symbols and that makes it special.
The comical manner to which its resident warrior joins the action only amplifies the enjoyment that is can offer. The multiplier wins, which increase with each win make it one to challenge and enjoy as the big wins and free spins fall into place on its 5 reels and 20 paylines. The symbols are a variety of animal drawings one would expect from the Mayans and naming them would be a tough thing to do, but needless to say, each is wonderfully done with creativity in mind.
Free spins in this slot are named “Free Falls” and their unique to only this game. Players can activate ten free falls whenever three Mayan Mask or any combination of Mayan masks and wild symbols are seen on the first three reels. This feature can be re-triggered and will increase the multipliers from 1t through 5 to 3 through 15.
Wilds for this slot are an entirely different story. This is displayed secretly by a question mark symbol, when it is seen in a payout it will match all but the scatter to award combinations on the paylines. This can come in rather handy when you factor in with each win, its multiplier will increase.
Scatters in this slot hold two different purposes. The first is to trigger the free games mode, which is described above. The second is it will see the avalanche action go into effect, as it does with the regular symbols.
The bonus game to this slot is called “Avalanche Multipliers” when a win occurs in the base game. Each time a win occurs, the multiplier will move to the next level and will continue with each successive win until it reaches its maximum level. It will remain at that level until no further wins are achieved.
This bonus round in Gonzo’s Quest is unique in the sense that it isn’t triggered by any hidden game symbol or that it doesn’t take you to any separate bonus game screen. It’s played out with each and every win and this is where the value in this slot lays. The free spins amplify that as multipliers are increased and only lead to dome epic wins.
