Themes and symbols
Your journey starts in a tropical and dense jungle situated in the heart of South America. El Dorado, the lost city, made from pure gold, is said to be located somewhere in the dense jungle and you will need to use Aztec drawings to reveal secrets and clues on where this marvelous city of gold is hidden. Prepare for sweltering heat and downpours as the background offers the perfect atmosphere with several lush green trees and plants scattered around the reel set. You will also find Aztec drawings carved into stone and our legendary hero Gonzo standing on the left of the reels, cheering you on with every spin you initiate. He randomly scratches his head or even spins his silver helmet out of pure boredom and performs several dance moves and fist pumps when a win is created.
This highly addictive slot game has been developed with some of the best music and sound effects, ultra-cool animations, and superb 3D graphics to compliment the theme of the game. The reels are perfectly positioned in the center of the tropical jungle with numerous stone carvings, in an array of different colors, implanted into every reel. The control panel is portrayed in front of a treasure map that hopefully leads to the lost city of gold. The symbols presented in this video slot feature different human and animal faces that are carved out of stone, each with their unique colors scheme including purple, orange, green and blue faces along with pale blue, pink and brown animal faces.
The silver stone with a bright yellow question mark will represent the wild symbol, standing in for all regular symbols to generate a win, except for the scatter symbol. The golden animal mask will act as the scatter symbol and unlocks the Free Fall feature in the game.
The conventional reel spin you find on almost every video slot has been revamped and upgraded with a new Avalanche feature in Gonzo’s Quest. This feature allows each symbol to individually fall into their positions from above, complete with sound effects that give the impression of stones falling on top of each other in pure 3D fashion. Once a combination is formed, the winning symbols will explode and be replaced by new symbols to hopefully form another win. With every consecutive win, there will also be a multiplier value increase up to a maximum of 5 times while the Avalanche feature is active.
Free Fall Feature
Three Golden masks will be the ones needed to award you with ten free falls with a 3x multiplier on every win you create. During the free fall feature, you also have the potential to unlock extra multiplier values ranging between 6x and 15x your total bet size.
Gonzo’s Quest is one of Net Entertainment’s most popular and impressive video slots filled with funny and entertaining 3D animations, crisp sound effects and high-end graphics. The symbols provide endless winning possibilities, and the bonus features will further enhance the gameplay experience, in part thanks to its return ratio of 96.00%.
