The Netent Gonzos Quest Slot game begins it’s story in 1541 off the coast of Peru, Spanish Explorers on a quest for Gold…The legend of Eldorado has caught the imaginations of explorers and storytellers since the 15th century.
Net Entertainment are bringing us pretty close to the legend itself, thanks to the quest of one conquistador – Gonzo, who has stolen the map to the lost city and taken us with him so we can bag some gold of our own. Well, when we say gold, we mean gaming coins that can be withdrawn from your Casino Kings account. Actual gold is much more fiddly to work with.
After a super neat intro that sets up our quest brilliantly we find ourselves in the jungle faced by a wall of stone Inca Heads. We aren’t alone – this is Gonzo’s quest after all so he is right here with us, keeping us company alongside the reel case with amusing animations that don’t really instil us with confidence that he knows where this famed gold city actually is.
Each Inca Head is a symbol, falling away from the five reels when we land any of the game’s 20 paylines and being replaced by more ornate Inca Heads, bringing multipliers with each successive round of new heads that NetEnt are adventurously calling Avalanche Multipliers. During the base game these multiplier range from x1 – x5, while during the Free Falls game these multipliers boost to x3 – x15.
The Free Falls bonus feature is the sparkly Cava when it comes to whetting this impish Spaniard’s whistle, offering the potential for big wins with each consecutive Avalanche Multiplier. We win 10 Free Falls when we land three or more Golden Sun scatters, and while we are seeking for major boosts in terms of Avalanche Multipliers we can also harbour the hope of re-triggering the Free Falls feature during the Free Falls game.
As you’d expect from a game as wild as this, Gonzos Quest Slot has a Wild symbol – the only Inca Block that looks remotely out of place with the golden question mark plastered all over its front. Still, at least it’s embossed with gold which reminds us nicely as to why we’re here in this sweaty jungle in the first place.
As an adventure, the Gonzo’s Quest slot game has everything – story, atmosphere, great graphics, a lead character that is as endearing as he is kooky. Watch out for his neat moonwalking when we land a decent win. Turns out Jacko robbed it off Gonzo who started it hundreds of years ago, and there’s a good chance it will rub off on us should we find this famous lost city of gold.
