Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock or have been on a quest yourself, it’s unlikely you’ve missed out on all the buzz around NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest slots.
Following conqueror Gonzalo Pizarro – the man himself, Gonzo – going off on a quest to find the lost Amazonian city of Eldorado, the game features slick graphics (including some nice 3D animation), a gorgeous soundtrack and a great set of extras.
With 20 paylines across 5 reels, this might not look like anything out of the ordinary at face value. However, the added extra if ‘Avalanche Reels’ – where the symbols fall out of the sky, rather than spin, will win you over, or at the very least, make you pause before spinning.

The theme is Mayan, and so are the symbols, which explode when you win a combo. Every time you do so, you’ll see your combo-bonus meter go up, which will increase from 1x to 2x to 3x, up to a 5x multiplier – meaning you potentially could receive up to a 5x multiplier on every winning spin.
The main feature of the game is the Free Falls Bonus – if you’re lucky enough to have 3 Free Fall symbols fall onto your reels, you’ll trigger the bonus, which gives you 10 free spins, with a multiplier value going from 3x to 15x. A 15x multiplier on your spin isn’t bad, and you’ll see Gonzo himself dancing even more excitedly the higher your multiplier goes.
Gonzo’s Quest is a fun, fresh take on online slots, which promises to only get better once the VR version of the game is released – which should be pretty soon if NetEnt is to be believed. Enjoy the non-VR version in the meantime, to get your gameplay to the best it can be.
