Conquer Casino Hosts Gonzo’s Quest
When Net Entertainment first released Gonzo’s Quest in 2010 it took the online slots world by storm. The game showed just how innovative Net Entertainment (now just NetEnt) could be, not just in the mind blowing quality of their 3D graphics, but also in their character development and slots features. The game's most striking visual feature has to be NetEnt’s highly innovative and refreshingly original ‘Avalanche Feature’. While normal slots uk have reels that spin in a conventional slots way, Gonzo’s Quest completely does away with this boring concept by having the reel symbols ‘fall’ into place instead.
This feature alone attracted massive interest throughout the video slots gaming world as nothing like it had been seen before. Add this new innovation to incredibly well-executed graphics and an adventure story line that is, at least in part, based on actual historical characters and events, and you have one of the most entertaining and beguiling slot games ever devised in the online casino gaming industry. Essentially the story of Gonzo’s Quest asks the question ‘what if?’ and follows the adventures of real life conquistador Gonzalo Pizzaro, and his quest to find the lost city of El Dorado, deep in the juggles of central America.
Check out The Slot Theme
When launching the game via our casino, the game starts off with a wonderful animated sequence, very reminiscent of top Pixar and Disney animated movies, where we get our first glimpse of our would-be hero. The sequence is brilliantly executed and sets the theme of action and adventure to come. You can see Gonzo steal a map to El Dorado, the fabled lost city of gold, and jump ship – headed for the jungle. After the sequence has ended, you can watch the amazing 5 reels for the first time, and they appear to be carved out of stone.
The 5 reels all bear different Inca symbols of jungle gods and animals and the overall look and feel really adds to the theme of the game. With 20 paylines and an ever-present multiplier meter in the top corner, decked in earthy browns and golds, the entire look of the theme is complete and really quite perfect. More thematic innovations are present in the spin button which, instead of the usual button simple marked ‘spin’, is an interesting symbol of two arrows chasing each other in an eternal circle. Pressing the button reveals for the first time the dramatic splendour of the falling stone blocks known as the Avalanche Feature. The game also features a wide coin value which means just about anyone can play.
Main Game Features
When you experience the Avalanche Feature for the first time you’ll wonder where it’s been all your life. While described here may seem adequate enough, you really have to experience it for yourself to get the true effect of it. As soon as you click the spin button nothing spins, instead you see massive blocks of granite fall away, only to have more massive granite blocks take their place in the rows. Get winning combinations and watch how the granite blocks in the winning combo begin to shake, eventually exploding and disintegrating. The disintegrated blocks are immediately replaced by more blocks and, if there’s a winning combo there, the entire spectacle repeats itself all over again.
Another advantage of the Avalanche Feature is that it tends to extend the longevity of each spin, which seems to help in creating bigger wins more frequently. Adding even more value to each spin is the ever-present multiplier meter. In most slots, the multiplier feature will only appear during a bonus round. However, in Gonzos Quest slots, the multiplier is available during the base game too. Each spin sets off the multiplier meter, which consists of a x1, x2, x3 and a x 5 multiplier value. When you have a winning combo, the paylines are highlighted and the multiplier meter indicates by how much your combo is being multiplied by.
Play to See Amazing Bonus Features
If you manage to land three or more gold free fall symbols on an active payline, you will trigger 10 Gonzos Quest free spins. The free fall symbol is essentially the games scatter symbol and landing three or more of them will trigger the games bonus round known as the Free Fall Bonus round. The free spins are not called free spins in the game, but rather ‘Free Falls’, which is quite nice and in line with the rest of this highly innovative and original slot game. Another nice and really original touch is that, when you trigger the bonus feature, gold coins fall from the scatter symbols and Gonzo will rush out and try to catch as many as he can in his conquistador’s helmet.
Remember the ever-present multiplier meter touched upon earlier? Well this brings us to the second bonus game innovation as the multiplier meter also transforms somewhat in line with the new features of the bonus game. Instead of the base game multiplier values of x1, x2, x3 and a x 5, the multiplier meter now reflects x3, x, 6, x9 and a whopping x 15. Which means that, whatever your wins are in the bonus round, you could potentially multiply them by as much as fifteen times. The Free Falls bonus round can also be retriggered which means even more potential gold coins coming your (Gonzo’s) way.
What we think of Gonzo’s Quest?
We at Conquer Casino believe that this has to be one of the most entertaining and innovative online slot games ever produced and has certainly set a benchmark for all future slot machine designs. Not only can you expect great bonus games, incredible visual appeal thanks to gigantic falling blocks of granite as symbols, you can also expect decent payouts occurring frequently. Gonzo himself is highly entertaining and will get up to all sorts of antics in the bottom left of your screen as he watches you play. When playing the game at our casino, you can watch Gonzo scratch his beard and spin his helmet when he’s bored or even fist pump and do a moonwalk across your screen when you put together a big win.
