Gonzo’s Quest Touch One of the Best Known of Netent’s Slots
Gonzo’s Quest has long been one of the most popular of all Net Entertainment’s slots games. It involves a jungle theme, with Gonzo on a search for the mythical city of El Dorado, and the equally mythical pot of gold. The game is well crafted with 3D graphics, and will provide the player with some of Net Entertainment’s unique features. The game is part of the Touch series that players in the United States are looking to play, and that has been developed for use on the small screens of the iPhone or iPad, or any of the Android mobile devices.
The icons on the reels look as if they are carved into the stone squares which make up the reels. The rocks or stone slabs will fall when the reels are spun, instead of the traditional spinning motion players are used to in other slots games. The symbols in Gonzo’s Quest include mythological idols, like the Fire Idol, the Fish Idol and Alligator Idol, the Health Idol, the Bird Idol, and a Moon Idol and Snake Idol.
Gonzo’s Quest, in whatever format the player uses, is actually a fairly simple game. There are two main highlights, the free spins round and the Avalanche feature.
The Great Avalanche Feature
The Avalanche feature is a feature that NetEnt invented, and it has become the main excitement of the game. During the Avalanche feature the Idol symbols that make up a winning pay line will light up and get crushed, thus leaving room on the reels for more rocks to settle for a second avalanche to take place, and another chance to win.
The player will hear a dramatic crash of falling rocks with the arrival of the Avalanche. If the player continues to win, he will find the continuous multipliers will keep increasing. There is the possibility of sacrificing the free spins that occur, but the additional symbols that the player will find during the Avalanche game will make up for those. As soon as the winning streak stops, all the rocks disappear, and a new set will appear to cover all the reels.
Free Spins Give Good Rewards
The free spins rounds in Gonzo’s Quest, however, are the games that will give the player his biggest wins, especially if the player also manages to hit that multiplier of fifteen times. Each pay line that appears containing three of the golden idol Scatter free fall symbols will activate ten free falls, or free spins. These symbols must appear in succession, starting from the reel on the left. Wild symbols will substitute for all other symbols, including the free fall symbols, so this is not a very rare happening.
The Avalanche multipliers will increase during the free falls, adding three times to each win the player receives, so the multipliers can increase by three, six, nine or fifteen times. At the end of this round, Gonzo will catch all the winnings in his hat.
There are some players who win big prizes in this game, but Gonzo’s Quest is not known for providing the player with many huge wins. Some of the reasons of this game’s worldwide popularity, apart from the Avalanche feature, is because it is simple and easy to play, and does give payouts fairly consistently, even if they are not very big. Players in the United States will enjoy the constant action, and the multipliers that do increase consistently.
