The Gonzo’s Quest slots game is themed on the Spanish missions to collect gold from the newly discovered Peru. When the Gallon arrived on the Peruvian coast however, Gonzo had other plans. He stole the map to the Eldoraden treasure and decided to search for himself.
This game is a 5 reel game, with 20 paylines and you can bet up to 5 coins on each payline.
There are two different bonus features to this game. The first is unusual – called the ‘Avalanche’ feature if you hit a winning payline the multiplier at the top of the screen moves up, all the symbols in the winning payline blow up, the symbols above them fall down and new symbols fill the gaps at the top. If this results in a second winning payline, the process is repeated and will continue until no paylines are hit or the maximum 5x multiplier has been won.
The second bonus feature is activated when three or more ‘Free Fall’ symbols appear in a row on a payline starting from the left of the screen. When this happen you are awarded free spin. During the free spin the Avalanche feature is still active but the multipliers are increased so each winning payline you receives and even bigger win!
Gonzo's Quest was one of the first big success stories for Net Entertainment. Visually gorgeous even by today's standards the game offered one of the first avalanche features, a feature that's now been reproduced in many other games, and packaged it with a House Edge that while a little high for today, was well below the industry average at the time it was released. Over the years Gonzo's Quests enduring popularity with players had ensured its place in the slot game hall of fame. It was great for the era it was released. Slots games have moved on since then, but this game continues to have mass appeal that stamps this game with the seal of approval of players.
