Gonzo's Quest: one of the top slots in the world
With Gonzo's Quest, NetEnt has created a milestone in slot history. With this slot, the Swedish slot machine manufacturer was the first to decide against the classic reels that make slot machines so popular. Instead of the spinning reels, NetEnt uses bricks that fall from above and pile up on the screen. This Free Fall feature was revolutionary in 2011 when the slot machine game was released. However, this variation of the classic slot quickly became so popular that since the release of Gonzo's Quest it has been copied by many other vendors.
But it is not only this novelty in slot history that makes Gonzo's Quest an extraordinary slot: The slot machine impresses all along the line with its breathtaking animations. The discoverer Gonzo is especially well done. He is always at the player's side and is eager to go on an exciting journey of discovery. No matter whether Gonzo is catching golden coins in his helmet or dancing across the screen in the moonwalk, he always provides entertainment and good humour.
The different versions of the slot machine
Gonzo's Quest was released in 2011 and has quickly become one of the most popular slot-machines. To this day, the slot is one of the top games in the industry. To continue this success, Gonzo's Quest Megaways was released in July 2020. As usual in Megaways games, the Megaways engine determines the number of symbols and betways at the beginning of each spin by a random generator. Two new symbols have been added to the game, but the rest of the game and the graphics have not changed much.
NetEnt is also at the forefront of Virtual Reality, as Gonzo's Quest is also available as a VR version. By wearing Virtual Reality glasses the player gets the feeling of being in the middle of an adventure journey with Gonzo, which makes the gaming experience even more captivating. What makes Gonzo's Quest VR easier, especially for slot newcomers, is that the winning table and other important information is always available. The game no longer needs to be interrupted, instead the player simply turns his head to the side and immediately sees the information he is looking for in the Virtual Reality Slot.
The VR version of the popular casino game is unfortunately not yet available in Switzerland.
The most important tips and tricks for Gonzo's Quest
Gonzo's Quest is known among players for its high volatility. Many slot players appreciate this very much and are excited about the high winnings. However, this is not suitable for everyone, as the high volatility means that the winnings are higher but less frequent. Due to the high volatility, this slot may take longer to win your first prize than other slot machines.
The gameplay of Gonzo's Quest at jackpots.ch
The Gonzo Slot game differs in one important aspect from the traditional slot machines. The falling symbols create a completely new game dynamic, which offers a decisive advantage for the players: All the stones in a winning combination explode, making room for new symbols to fall from the top. This so-called "Avalanche Feature" continues until no more winning combinations are reached. This special feature makes it possible for you to win not just once, but several times in one spin.
The Avalanche feature pays off twice for players: With several wins in one spin, the multiplier, which you will find in the top right-hand corner, increases and gives you even bigger winnings. The multiplier increases from 1x up to 5x if the Avalanche features are sufficient. The Avalanche feature not only increases your winnings, but also the tension, because you never know how long a round will last.
Winning symbols & features
The winning symbols of Gonzo's Quest are all in Mayan style, which characterizes the entire game. The individual tiles are decorated with different masks and animal faces, with the masks representing the higher winnings and the animal faces representing the smaller ones. In the payout table, which can be accessed via the "i" in the lower left corner, you can see the different symbols and your payout in detail.
However, when viewing the table, you should be aware that it does not automatically adjust to the betting level, but always shows the payout per line with level 1. To find out the payout of each symbol per total bet you must divide the values shown in the table by 20 (the fixed number of pay lines).
If you convert these numbers as described above, you get paid for every 5 symbols on a payline:
- Blue Mask - 125x the bet
- Green mask - 50x the bet
- Yellow mask - 25x the bet
- Purple mask - 5x the bet
- Yellow animal face - 5x the bet
- Red animal face - 3.75x the bet
- Blue animal face - 2.5x the bet
Equal to the payout calculations for 5 symbols on a payline, the payouts for 3 and 4 symbols per line can also be calculated.
Since Gonzo's Quest does not consist of the classic reels, this game does not have Free Spins, but rather Free Falls. The Free Falls are triggered when 3 Free Fall symbols land on a payline. The board opens in the middle and Gonzo disappears behind it towards the golden pyramid. The player is rewarded for this luck with 10 Free Falls. With even more luck and 3 or more Free Fall symbols on 2 different paylines, you can win 20 Free Falls.
With 3 or more Free Falls symbols during the Free Falls, you can win additional Free Rounds. In the Free Falls, the multiplier is also increased and can now reach up to 15x.
With a bit of luck, Free Falls will end with Gonzo catching a load of gold coins in his helmet and giving you your winnings. When the feature ends, he will return to his usual place on the left side of the screen and the game will continue.
NetEnt the guarantor for first-class slot machines
Gonzo's Quest is one of the slots from NetEnt. The popular game manufacturer has often shown a good feeling for hits. Not only Gonzo's Quest but also Starburst has been holding its own in the ranking of the best slots for years.
The popular slot manufacturer NetEnt has its headquarters in Stockholm and distributes its slot machines from there all over the world. However, the company is by no means resting on its laurels and new NetEnt slots are constantly being created. The Swedish company is also at the forefront in the development of Virtual Reality Slots.
The perfect slot for newcomers and experienced slot pros alike
Gonzo's Quest is the perfect slot for newcomers and experienced slot pros alike. The slot machine not only impresses with its revolutionary Avalanche feature, but also with its breathtaking animation. The feeling of a companion makes the adventure journey to the hidden treasures of the Mayans even more interesting. Due to the excitement during the Avalanche Feature and the resulting longer game rounds, the player never gets bored in any second of the game.
