Gonzo's Quest puts you in the shoes of intrepid conquistador Gonzalo Pizarro as he searches for the mythical city of gold, El Dorado. This superbly presented slot machine boasts the avalanche feature where winning paylines disappear, a multiplier is incremented, and replacement symbols fall from above, allowing you to win again on the same spin.
The Spanish are making their way to Peru in search for treasure but Gonzo has his own little plan, so join him in this video slot game and he just might lead you to your own treasure. The pokie introduces an original feature the Avalanche. The slot has no reel spin but rather the symbols fall into position. This feature can treat you to a few perks. The winning line will start an Avalanche, the symbols in the winning combination will explode and disappear, leaving space for the more symbols to avalanche into their place, giving you a new chance to make a winning combination. The winning multiplier is increase with each new Avalanche.
Even though you have a Wild symbol, which is something you might already be accustomed to, you do not have free spins. Don’t be de-motivated, since you can’t spin the reels you obviously can’t have free spins but you can definitely have Free Falls! Each bet line that has three or more Free Fall symbols will activate 10 Free Falls. During Free Falls you can activate an Avalanche on a winning line except now your multipliers will be much higher than in an ordinary round.
Classic spinning reels are not used in this pokie – the unique Avalanche™ Reels is used which shows the symbols falling from above. The symbols are Mayan themed and explode upon winning a combination. Every time you have a winning combination, the winning symbols explode and are replaced by new symbols. When you get new symbols, the multiplier in the top right hand corner of the screen goes from 1x to 2x to 3x and eventually 5x.
The Free Fall mode is the feature to look out for – you will receive 10 free falls and your winning combinations are multiplied from 3x, 6x, 9x and 15x. Gonzo himself becomes quite animated when you win and dances around the screen. Look out for Gonzo doing a Michael Jackson-esque moonwalk.
Furthermore, if you trigger the Supermode Free Spins feature, you are given 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier. This is randomly triggered though and the 3 wild features will remain on the reels throughout the free spins.
There is also a Supermode Free Spins feature that can award you up to 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier. It is activated randomly though and you will see 3 wild symbols permanently on the reels throughout.
Gonzo's Quest is like a video slot due to superb graphics and animations. The pokie is unlike anything you'll ever see contributing to its recent popularity.
