Gonzo’s Quest Slots

Gonzos-QuestGonzo’s Quest shows you the adventures of a Spanish explorer that has reached the shores of South America and now he’s out on a search for Eldorado. He wants treasures and he has a map to guide him. The role of the conquistadors in the history of South America isn’t a terribly happy one, as they did their share of bad things to the Natives, but in this case you’re not going to find it hard to be on the side of the explorer hungry for gold, since that’s what the slot’s players are also hoping of finding in it.

Gonzo’s Quest for the treasure can bring you up to $62,500 as the top payout, more than generous for this 5 reel/20 line game from Net Entertainment. It’s also going to give you free falls (spins), avalanches with multipliers, wild symbols and scatters.

Features of Gonzo’s Quest

The Avalanche and its multipliers of up to 15x, the free spins and the wilds are the major features that Gonzo’s Quest relies on the most.

First, we have the Avalanche feature, a name that is mostly used by Net Entertainment for this type of event. Whenever a combo forms on the reels, you get a free re-spin of the reels, where only the symbols that are part of the combo get replaced, all the others remaining the same. An increased multiplier is also available for the re-spin. You get 2x for the prizes won after the first re-spin, 3x if you get another re-spin after that and 5x for all the re-spins that follow. The multiplier resets and the re-spins stop once you reach a round where you no longer get a winning combo after the Avalanche feature does its job.


The stone tablet with decorations in the background and a golden question mark in the front is a symbol whose only role is to help you make more money. This is the wild, the feature that substitutes for any symbol in the game. It doesn’t offer prizes on its own, but it will be a useful addition to the reels.

Free Falls Feature

The Gold Idol is the symbol that triggers free falls, meaning free spins in every other slot. When you get at least three of these symbols on a payline, you receive 10 free falls from it. These are not scatters, so they need to appear in order, starting from the leftmost position. You can retrigger these free falls, as you’re using the initial 10 that you’ve won.

For the duration of the free falls, you get the same features as in the base game, but at least one of them is a lot more valuable. First of all, you have a 3x multiplier applied to prizes, instead of the 1x that the base game starts with. All the Avalanche multipliers triple as well, so you get 6x, 9x or 15x the usual prize, depending how many of them have been triggered so far.


Betting options and jackpots

If you want to spend as little as possible on this game, you can get away with a $0.40 bet, which uses 20 coins at the smallest denomination of $0.02. Larger bets can either increase the number of coins, up to 100 total, or the denomination, which goes up to $1. The resulting maximum bet is worth $100, with $5 line bets selected.

A 2,500x multiple, when offered as the top jackpot, is a very good deal. It applies to the line bet of that round, which for the maximum bet sits at $5. Up to $62,500 can be won this way, in this generous slot machine, but you will need the help of the avalanche multipliers from the base game to get to that amount. The free falls have even bigger multipliers.

Design and symbols

The conquistador theme looks pretty good, Gonzo being present on the left side of the reels and doing stuff as you’re spinning the reels. The ruins of a South American temple are visible nearby, with the reels being made out of stone and looking like idols that the tribes would’ve worshipped at the time. The symbols all look like they are made out of slabs of stone, which fall into place once the reels stop spinning.

Symbols: Question Mark (wild), Gold Idol (scatter), Moon Idol (2,500x), Fire Idol (1,000x), Fish Idol (500x), Health Idol (200x), Snake Idol (100x), Alligator Idol (75x) and Bird Idol (50x).


Is It Worth Playing?

The use of only idol related images is a bit annoying, but the game can get very profitable quickly, especially during free falls, when up to 15x the usual prizes can be won.

You will find Gonzo’s Quest at any online casino which chooses to use software from Net Entertainment, playable either for free or for real money.
