Have you ever felt the need to explore? To go on your own adventure in strange foreign lands, plunge into deep dark caves and traverse thick dense jungles? Well then look no further as Gonzo’s Quest has exactly what you’re looking for!
An extremely entertaining game, Gonzo’s Quest features the usual staple of Wilds and Scatters, but it also has an interesting take on the slot game that few others have thought to include. Players are put in the role of an ancient explorer as they help the brave conquistador Gonzo on his quest for riches from the legendary city of El Dorado.
The art style in Gonzo’s Quest is fantastic as the game has been designed to resemble an intimidating jungle; even the blocks feature various designs of deities and symbology from the ancient Mayan culture. It all helps to further add to the immersive feel that you’re there alongside the crazy conquistador, searching for your own treasure. Plus the way the symbols ‘clunk’ into position is oddly satisfying, as if they had real weight behind them.
What sets this apart from other slot games is not only its creative design but its unique tumbling reels. Instead of spinning like other slot games do, Gonzo’s Quest has symbols that fall down from above when a winning combination is achieved. The symbols that are in the winning combination explode and more fall land on top of them opening up other ways to win with new combinations.

How to Play
Featuring 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 paylines to win across, Gonzo’s Quest is relatively easy to play. The wager amount per bet and the corresponding coin size can all be changed using the large onscreen buttons marked ‘Bet Level’ and ‘Coin Value’ to lower or raise the amounts to suit your wagering level. You can also use the ‘Bet Max’ option to set all values to full automatically. Once you’ve decided your amount, all that’s left is to hit ‘Spin’. There’s also a helpful ‘Auto Play’ function that run the reels for a set number of turns or until the bonus is activated.
A unique feature to this game is the multiplier that increases after each successful spin. On the basic game mode this goes from a 1x – 5x, but during the bonus round these change to a 3x – 15x multiplier. This handy little gadget can nab you substantially large pay outs from every spin, although if you manage to spin without hitting any winning combinations, the multiplier will reset to the lowest amount.
An intricately designed golden question mark, set within a stone tablet stands in as the Wilds. These can substitute for other symbols in your winning combinations and will increase the overall pay out of the winning combination.
Free spins in Gonzo’s Quest are called ‘Free Falls’. These can be activated by getting three or more of the golden face Scatter symbols to appear in your winning combination on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd reels. Once activated, the reels open up to let Gonzo proceed into 10 spins with a multiplier ranging from 3x to 15x being applied on your wins. A nice addition to this mode is that it can be retriggered so there’s a chance you can chain it for larger payouts.
