Play Gonzo on your iPhone or Android device
European developer Net Entertainment has a dynamic HTML5 3D video slot game in Gonzo’s Quest. 5 reels and 20 fixed pay lines betting up to 5 coins a line can offer entertainment to both new and practiced players. No so-called Free Spins are available, but there are Wild Cards and bonuses in game, while the Avalanche and Free Fall features effectively offer Free Spins in a new way. The potential fixed jackpot is 62,500 coins, while the House Edge is 4%, giving the player a substantial 96% payout on average and thus medium to low volatility. The game can also be played without betting and as a mobile download.
The game features Gonzo, based on conquistador Gonzalo Pizzaro, as a quirky avatar who keeps the player company throughout. The game has a South American jungle theme, featuring carved faces in Aztec style as the symbols. Rather than using a standard wheel spin, game play involves an “avalanche” on each spin, wherein the symbols fall into place rather than spinning, and winning combinations explode to leave spaces for new symbols to fall into. Sound effects feature pan-pipes, adding to the jungle theme, and ambient jungle sounds.
Game and Winnings
Wild Symbols in Gonzo´s Quest are grey stones with a question mark replacing all other icons and paying the best win per line from left to right. The Scatter, on the other hand, is here represented by the golden icon and activates the Free Fall Round, Gonzo´s Quest bonus game. 10 Free Falls are rewarded for at least 3x golden icons. Even more interesting, during this bonus game, every win gets an extra multiplier with value from 3x up to 15x. Because of the Avalanche feature, winning Gold Mayan symbols get crushed to create a Free Fall of new symbols, and the game also features bonus progressive multipliers of up to 5x the bet value. Free Falls and Avalanches thus provide this slot with significant chances for new, progressive winnings by adding new spins and number of high-value multipliers.
The maximum payout in this game is 2500x the bet level for 5x the blue and golden mask, with a coin value ranging from 0.01 to 0.50 Euros per line over 20 pay lines, resulting in a maximum bet value of 50.00 Euros and total possible jackpot of 62,500 coins (or 31,250 Euros in cash with maximum betting). More detail on payouts can be found in the game’s payout table under reel 1. The help section (question mark icon, bottom left corner) will successfully supply new players with complete game instructions.
