Gonzo’s Quest Slot Machine Review

gonzo-quest-slotsOne of the first online slots I played was Gonzo’s Quest. I was hooked from the first spin and have been spoiled by this slots unique and entertaining features ever since.

The slot is created by NetEnt and based on the historical character; Gonzo Pizzaro, a conquistador in the 1500’s. You follow Gonzo’s search for the city of Gold; Eldorado, in this visually stunning and value packed online slot. Gonzo himself will be cheering you on with each spin of the reels and stands at the bottom left during your time playing Gonzo’s Quest.

The slot has many unique features that really separate it from other online slots. The one to watch out for is the Avalanche feature that makes any winning combination of blocks, smash and disappears. Once the winning blocks are out of the way, new ones will fall in to replace them, possibly generating more wins. The avalanche keeps happening each time a new win occurs with the payout multiplying up to 5x for each one.

Other features include a free fall round, free spins and pay out multipliers.

General Game Information

Gonzo’s Quest is a 5 reel, 3 row, 20 pay line online slot. All winning combinations go from left to right and payouts can be high as 250,000 coins.


The theme for the symbols can best be described as ancient Mayan. Although there is no real name for any of the symbols, they look much like something you would find in a lost South American tribal city.

Wild Symbol

The wild is a question mark and will replace all other symbols except the free fall symbol.

Free Fall Symbol

The free fall symbol will be gold and sparkles, making it very distinct. To trigger the free fall bonus round, you must hit 3 or more free fall symbols in succession. Once the round is activated, you are awarded 10 free falls, or free spins. During the free fall bonus round, you can win more free spins and a bonus multiplier up to 15x.

The Avalanche feature also applies during free fall rounds. This is how you activate the bonus multipliers. Get 4 winning combinations in a row during the Avalanche feature in free fall mode to achieve the 15x pay out multiplier.

Game Play

When you first load Gonzo’s Quest, you will be taken to an introduction movie that shows Gonzo leaving for his quest. You will immediately be impressed with the quality of work that has been put into this slot.

While playing the slot, 3D explosions and life like sounds will please your senses and make the game come to life. The ambient noise makes you feel like you’re in the Amazon searching for the lost treasures with Gonzo himself.

The user controls make playing Gonzo’s Quest simple and the focus can be left on the actual game. Auto play functions allow users to set up to 75 spins to automatically play themselves. You can sit back and watch the beauty of this game take full shape and see the treasures pour in.

Gonzo’s Quest can be played as a download version or through the mobile application. This lets you play Gonzo on your mobile phone or portable device.
