Net Entertainment has once again broken the mould with one of their most lucrative online casino games
Gonzo’s Quest. Gonzo is a little gnome-type character who is on a mission to find treasure in the lost city of Eldorado with the help of his trusty map. The graphics are not as spectacular as in some of NetEnt’s other games, but the game itself is amazing.
Gonzo’s Quest uses Avalanche Reels which is different to spinning reels. The Mayan symbol will explode and dissolve when you get a winning combination. Then like from outer space, the screen is replenished by new symbols falling into the empty positons. The multilayer symbol, which is located to top right hand side of the screen, indicates whether your winnings will be multiplied by one, two, three or five times.
The pay line system is superb in allowing gamers to win multiple times, depending on the amount wagered. Wagers start from as little as €0,20 to a maximum of €50 per spin. When you engage the bet level button, it takes your wager up by €0,20 each time until you reach your maximum bet. The vast differentials are great for gamers of all financial backgrounds and encompass professionals and amateurs alike. The pay table button indicates the avalanche multipliers. The wild symbol ensures that players have ample opportunities to win. However, if a player has multiple wins per bet line only the highest one is paid.
Players who take too long to make a selection will send Gonzo on a tirade as he consults his map to see why it have has taken so long to move forward. He has no qualms about saying he is right while roughly putting his map away, and urging players to spin already! Some might find Gonzo’s frequent scratching of his unkempt beard and the random noises quirky and entertaining, but after a while they may become annoying, in which case the mute button is your friend.
The Free Falls bonus is the key feature in Gonzo’s Quest, which is activated when you receive three Free Fall symbols on three sequential reels, rewarding you with ten free spins and making the multiplier meter represent the winnings. Interestingly enough, with every win you experience, the multiplier values increase from three to six times and from nine to fifteen times. This not only offers you a generous ten free spins but sends Gonzo into a tirade of ecstasy with his celebratory dances including but not limited to the moonwalk.
Hats off to NetEnt
Hats off once again to Net Entertainment for envisioning and creating such an animated character that accompanies such a lucrative game. Gonzo’s Quest is notably one of the most played online games worldwide. The medium to high variance game does not offer huge wins often, but once you get started on the winning bandwagon, you can guarantee you will see great returns on your wagers.
