Gonzo’s Quest Slot Review
With the news that the latest Indiana Jones movie has been delayed a couple of years (if you are reading this in 2018), we are going to need something to fulfil our tomb exploring quota. We need some chap diving into tombs, seeking out treasures and all that jazz. Gonzo’s Quest from NetEnt provides this.
Transport Yourself into a Jungle
Gonzo has discovered an ancient jungle. In this ancient jungle is an ancient temple. You are going to be making a beeline for that temple, because the only treasures you are going to find in an ancient jungle is a bout of malaria, which certainly is not pleasant.
The slot is beautiful, if a little bit basic. If you are playing on a mobile device, then the theme seems to have been cut back a little bit. There are no ‘over the top’ animations that you would find in the desktop version of the game. Honestly, this is not that bad of a thing. We have become quite tired recently of slots which go over board with animations, so it is nice, even if it only applies to the mobile version of the game.
All of the symbols are intricate and distinct from one another, and the whole game just looks…glorious. We can’t imagine that there are that many people out there who would end up complaining about the theme of Gonzo’s Quest. Not the best NetEnt have ever pumped out, but certainly not one of their worst.
Perfect for riskier players - Rtp % & Variance
NetEnt have a habit of creating games which are on the lower volatility side recently. Not that this is a bad thing, but you are never going to get whopping great prizes when you gamble on those. You are just going to get small, steady wins. If you fancy a bit of risk, but not too much, then Gonzo’s Quest may be right up your street.
This is a medium volatility slot with a 4% house edge. The minimum bet per spin is 20 cents and the maximum $50. Interestingly, this $50 can lead to a whopping $93,750 jackpot, which certainly is not too shabby for such a ‘small’ maximum bet.
You are going to go long periods without seeing a win on Gonzo’s Quest, but sometimes you will enjoy this. You will know that there is a big win coming up…hopefully!
Gonzo’s Quest is another slot from NetEnt which makes use of Avalanche Reels. From your first spin, you will notice that this is a game which ditches the traditional reel structure.
Instead, on each spin you make, totems will fall into place. When you form a winning combination, the symbols which formed the winning combination will disappear and new symbols will fall into place.
Each successive win you get on a single spin will up your multiplier by 1, up to a maximum of 5x. This means that 5 wins in a row could deliver you a whopping amount of cash.
You will need 3 of the free fall symbols to trigger this feature. You will get 10 free spins. Interestingly (yes, there is a lot that is interesting about this slot), the wild is going to act as a substitute for this free fall symbol. You do need to get all three on the same pay line, which is going to make things a little bit more difficult, but throw in the wild for good measure here and you should be triggering free spins every few dozen spins. Honestly, on Gonzo’s Quest it is nowhere near as rare as if you were playing on other slots with free spins.
The best part about these free spins is that the multiplier on successive wins is going to be higher. It will be 1x, 3x, 6x, 9x, and 15x. Quite lucrative!
Just dive in. On this slot, we suggest that you keep your bet small if you really want to preserve your bank roll, because you aren’t going to be getting a lot of wins coming your way. The wins should still be fairly decent even at the 20 cents mark, so this should not pose that much of a problem.
Gonzo’s Quest is easily a 5-star slot. It is a bit difficult to find NetEnt slots to play in Canada, so we have put together a list of some of the best online casinos for you. You can find it below!
