Enjoy playing slot games, but looking for the one slot that would really captivate you and put you in a competitive mood? Gonzo’s Quest is the game for you.

Gonzo Quest is a 5-reel 20-payline video slot created exclusively for online gaming by Swedish online gaming provider, Net Entertainment. The theme is the Spanish conquistadors’ fascination with Eldorado, the legendary lost city of gold. The game begins with a short video featuring Gonzo the conquistador, the main character of the game. Gonzo sets off on his quest to find Eldorado in the jungles of South America. The visual and audio effects are state-of-the-art and the video immediately puts you in an adventurist mind set.

Game Description

Gonzo’s Quest game introduces the Avalanche feature. Unique to NetEnt, instead of the traditional reel spin, the symbols fall into place to create three, five-symbol rows. Symbols that make up a wining bet-line, vanish in a 3D explosion and new symbols “avalanche” down to fill up the gaps they leave, while all other symbols remain static. The avalanches continue as long as there are winning combinations – extending the game play and offering you more chances to win in every spin.

The aim of the game is to make winning combinations of 3-5 like-symbols appearing in succession from leftmost to right across an active bet line. The Question Mark Wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols to help complete a winning combination.

gonzos quest slotThere is no scatter symbol in Gonzo’s Quest. There are also no “player’s skill” features in this game, like the “nudge” or “hold” features, so spin results are determined purely by chance and are not subject to manipulation.

There is also an Auto feature, which automatically plays the game for the number of rounds you select. You also have the option to set up Advance Autoplay Settings. For example, you can choose to stop Autoplay after a win, or every time your cash funds are reduced or increased by a certain amount.

Paylines and Betting Options:

Gonzo’s Quest is a 20-payline game. The number of active paylines is fixed to 20.

However, you can freely adjust the coin value and the Bet Level. The coin value ranges between 0.01 – 0.50. There are 1-5 bet levels. Depending on the coin value and bet level you choose, the bet per spin ranges between €0.20 – €50. Max bet automatically plays the game at the maximum bet level and the pre-selected coin value.

The current bet level, coin value, bet per spin and remaining coins/cash funds remain displayed on the bottom of the screen during the game.

Bonus Features

Free Falls – 3 Free Fall symbols anywhere on a beltline activate 10 Free Falls (which are simply bonus rounds). Additional Free Falls can be won during a Free Fall round. The bet level and coin value during Free Falls are the same in the round initiating the Free Fall. The Paytable also stays the same during Free Falls.

Multipliers – Gonzo’s Quest offers a generous multipliers scheme. All wins are multiplied and the multiplier raises with each new avalanched. The multipliers for the regular games range from x1 for the initial avalanche to x5 for the 4+ avalanche. The Multipliers during Free Falls are even more generous, and range from x3 for the initial avalanche to x15 for the 4+ avalanche!


gonzos questGonzo’s Quest is not a progressive slot. The Maximum jackpot according to the Paytable is 2500 coins, which can come up to €1,250 even before any multiplier is applied. In addition, this game’s generous multipliers and Free Falls, gives you plenty of wining opportunities.

Also, according to NetEnt publications, the theoretical rate of return to player, or RTP is 96%, which is relatively high.


Based on my experience, Gonzo’s Quest is a must-try slot. The superb visual and sound effects and the creativity and innovation expressed in the Avalanche feature are reason enough. More importantly, the Avalanche feature extends the game play per round, giving you more winning opportunities. Together with the generous multipliers and Free Fall scheme, this game defiantly assures you an exciting gaming opportunity.
