About Gonzos Quest
Gonzo’s Quest is one of the premium ‘Platinum Slots’ from Net Entertainments. These slots represent some of the highest quality games that you’ll find anywhere on the web, and they really have been done incredibly well. Gonzo’s Quest sets a new standard in graphical excellence. From the moment you load up this game and gaze hypnotically at the awesome intro screen, you’ll be absolutely taken in by its beautiful visuals.
The next thing you’ll see on Gonzo’s Quest is the base-game. The developers have managed to pack an incredible level of detail into every visual aspect of the reels and background, without losing that lovely cartoon-like fun side to its looks that is a staple of the slot machine industry. Gonzo himself stands to the right of the reels, dancing and moving in line with the action that’s coming off the reels. The animations are first class, with a fully automated background featuring waterfalls and a lovely spin motion that sees symbols dropping like blocks into the game’s grid.
Audio-wise Gonzo’s is a stand out slot. It’s got all these great jungle noises that really help set the scene together with a loud pan pipe call when you spin the reels that’s followed up by a bit of Spanish guitar. What you’re listening to hear is a multi-level symphonic production, with many different layers of sounds. Leave the game idle for a little time and you’ll even get to hear Gonzo spluttering and muttering to himself in the background.
Looking at the base game, you’ve got a standard reel set up of 5 reels and 15 stop spaces. Bet from 1 to 10 coins across the 20 pay-lines on offer here. Gonzo’s Quest uses what’s known in the trade as a system of cascades in the reel game – Net Entertainments call these avalanches. Stop in any win on the reels and watch as the blocks blow apart to leave gaps in the grid into which the symbol above can drop. This allows you to get multiple wins off a single spin, and that’s not all either – the first win you get off any spin will be paid out at a 1x multiplier. The second is at x2, the third at x3 and the fourth cascade win and beyond are paid out at a whopping 5x multiplier on all your wins.
When you get to the Gonzo’s Quest bonus, which can be activated by a combination of three scatters anywhere on the first three reels, and can be substituted by wilds, you’ll see the regular set of reels open up, giving you a glimpse of El Dorado. This takes you to a second set of reels where you’ll get ten special free spins, which are known as free falls in this machine, due to the mechanic behind the reels where blocks simply fall into place.
The cascade multipliers are ramped up in the Gonzo’s Quest bonus round. Here all the multipliers have been tripled, so if you can pull four cascades in succession then you’ll be looking at a whopping 15x bonus. Needless to say, this is where a lot of the big money resides in this slot machine, and Gonzo himself will help you celebrate your cash earnings by moonwalking all over the reels in awe of your winnings.
